What do you get when you cross a snowman and a vampire? Frostbite! HAHAHAHAHA!
Last night's dinner wasVegan Mac n Cheese!
I didn't get a photo before it was cut but believe me, it was even prettier than it tasted!
Serves 4 as a main course or as a side dish for more.
Ingredients 2 cups COOKED vegan elbow macaroni 3 cups oat cheese 2 roma tomatoes About 1 cup chopped vegan sausage 1/4 cup bread crumbs Lemon pepper
Instructions First cook about 2 cups of elbow macaroni until NOT QUITE done. That way the noodles will still have some firmness after baking in sauce for two hours or more. Next make a batch of Oat cheese for the sauce. Follow the oat cheese recipe up to the part where you pour in a mold... but don't pour in a mold. Fear not, this will take you no more than five minutes, it's a blender recipe consisting of water, oats, nutritional yeast, sesame, lemon, onion powder and salt.
Assemble in a 2 qt casserole Half the cooked macaroni on the bottom Pour some of the warm cheese on top, enough to cover, about a cup. Two roma tomatoes, cut in thick slices are the next layer The rest of the macaroni on top of that A bit more cheese, but not all of it, you have one more layer to go. Chop together: one cup of vegan sausage and one roma tomato, this is your third layer. Mix them well and spread evenly over the macaroni and cheese. Pour the rest of the sauce over that and spread it around so no sausage is showing. about a 1/4 cup of bread crumbs. I processed two small slices of my home made bread in the blender until they were fine crumbs. Lemon pepper all over the top.
Bake covered for at least two hours at 350F. 15 minutes before you are ready to eat, remove the lid and let it brown. Ready to serve immediately but it's even better the next day!
