Vegan macaroni and cheese

Image
  I was expecting to have a meal kit delivery from vegano foods but there was a delivery problem. This leaves me with no groceries or meal plan for the week. I decided it is time to use some of the ingredients I have in my apartment.  I had a box of daiya alfredo I used the sauce a long time ago and never used the brown rice pasta. I have a few types of vegan cheese so perfect to try vegan Mac and cheese.  This is the first time I have tried Sproud plant milk it’s pea based and thick so I thought it would be good for the sauce. Step one was adding melt vegan butter to the pan. Then around one cup of milk. Then spices I used curry powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper. I added a tablespoon of vegan sour cream to help thicken the sauce. After incorporating added half a cup each of vegan Parmesan, vegan cheddar, vegan mozzarella.  It melted well but it was salty. I added more milk, spices, and some water to fix the taste.  I had coated some of the pasta in olive oil, curry powder, nutritio

PC Brand Ravioli Grandi - Heirloom Tomato and Burrata Cheese

I bought this ravioli at superstore for $4.99. The description on the box in summary said Tender oversized Ravioli with a filling made from heirloom tomatoes and burrata cheese. The pasta is made in Italy and it was a very light pasta with a good amount of filling.  I liked that I could hold the ravioli without it falling apart in my hands yet the pasta was really thin. The filling inside was a good amount with the cheese separated from the tomato. I really liked the flavour in the filling as it was well seasoned. The box said it would be good drizzled with olive oil I tried that on one piece after I had eaten a few plain from the pot. I liked it plain better there was already good flavour in it so I found the olive oil overpowered the flavour.  I really liked this pasta it is so light that I had to stop myself from eating the whole package in one meal. To get any pasta similar to this I would have to go to an authentic Italian restaurant where I am sure it would cost me upwards of $1
