Vegan mac and cheese using leftover cheese

Image
I had a lot of vegan cheese in my fridge so I thought it would be a good time to try and vegan macaroni and cheese it turned out delicious.  All you need is some vegan butter, vegan cheese, and plant milk. I thought the barista blend would make it creamier but it didn’t do any plant milk will work.  The presidents choice vegan butter i found at no frills is one of the best vegan butters I have tried highly recommend. Melt a little butter in the pan add cheeses and keep stirring. The cheese co cheese and Violife Parmesan block melted really well. The Violife shredded was harder to melt and the slices did not melt at all. Keep stirring and add some vegan cream cheese and plant milk as necessary to get a smooth sauce.  Add some spices for flavour I added curry powder, salt, and pepper. Add macaroni and stir.

Vancouver Planted Expo 2021





I won tickets to planted expo formally veg expo. Prior to the pandemic I went to veg expo every year. This is the first time I have gone as a vegan in the past I was vegetarian I didn’t check but I assume everything was vegan this year. I was hesitant to go to a convention during a pandemic they checked vaccine passports, and masks needed to be worn if not eating. The booths were spaced out but it was a bit awkward eating samples having to take the mask on and off especially if a booth got a little crowd around it. It never got uncomfortably crowded but I did miss a few booths. I felt there were less wrapped samples than at past events but foodie buddy said she thought it was the same as the past. It was nice to be able to attend this kind of an event after a long time.
