Chick-Fil-A copy cat but vegan

  I have been watching way to many copy cat YouTube videos lately. I have never even been to Chick-Fil-A but decided to make the sauce after I saw the recipe on Raphael Gomes channel. The only things in the sauce that are not already vegan were mayo and honey I have access to vegan substitutes.  I found the vegan honey didn’t taste like honey it’s less sweet and has a darker flavour like molasses. It’s good though. Recipe is simple mix ingredients in a jar I didn’t follow exact measurements. I then let it sit in the fridge for an hour.  That looks pretty close to the pictures I have seen of the sauce. It tasted pretty good if I make it again I will add more honey as it wasn’t sweet enough I didn’t account for the milder taste of vegan honey.  I live close to a no waste grocery store and they sell beyond tenders by the piece. I had waffle fries in my freezer and use my airfryer to heat the tenders and fries. The tenders are a little expensive so I didn’t want to experiment with doing an

Airfryer Pasta chips TikTok trend






I have been seeing the pasta chip trend all over Instagram. You cook the pasta normally then season and airfry it for ten minutes and you end up with crunchy chips. I have wanted to try but it as been too hot to cook anything until today. 


This morning before I went out I boiled the pasta. I had bought these bigger shell pasta awhile ago to make a stuffed shell recipe. It was cheaper to buy 2 bags I didn’t know what I was going to do with the extra pasta until now. 


I cut the pasta into thirds and decided to add most of the spices I have. Bagel seasoning, curry powder, nutritional yeast, cayenne, salt and pepper. I didn’t look up the recipe and also added some olive oil. The seasoning was good I ate some of the pasta from that plate. 

I set the air fryer to 360 for ten minutes. When I checked on it half way I thought I probably should have looked up the recipe but after ten minutes they look great. 

 

When I first tried them they were dry but I know everyone has been eating them with a dip. I added vegan mayo and ended up eating the whole plate while writing this. It was good. 

This time I used a 100% semolina pasta from Italy. In the future I will try other pastas made from different ingredients. These will definitely satisfy a craving for a crunchy snack. 

If you want to hear the sound of satisfying crunch here is a link to my Instagram Reel.
