Vegan Grilled Cheese and Dill Pickle Soup

Image
I have a lot of pickles in my fridge and someone on Instagram had mentioned dill pickle soup. I thought it sounded interesting but I didn’t look up a recipe.  I was using things I had in my house as I  haven’t gone grocery shopping for awhile. I added vegan butter, half an onion, 1 potato, a few pickles, and lots of spices to the soup maker. I used curry powder, dried parsley, smoked paprika, mushroom seasoning, salt and pepper. I turned the soup maker on and went to do a workout. The soup maker is still my favourite gadget.  I am always amazed by how good things turn out in the soup maker. I will make this soup again but I will use more vegetables next time to get a creamier texture.  I found this really good applewood vegan cheddar block from the UK at Save-On-Foods on sale for $8.99. I thought it was expensive when I bought  but the block lasted a long time and it melts great the best melting vegan cheese I have tried so far. You can see the cheese here on my second Instagram accoun

  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

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
