MACARONI SALAD SAUCE


AFC MACARONI SALAD SAUCE

Vegan sour cream has about half the calories of vegan mayonnaise, and it’s thicker, so you can add more to it without watering it down too much. For that reason, at least in some salads, vegan sour cream has become my new ‘go to’ base for mayonnaise replacement!

Makes approx. 2 cups

BAKED VEG CHEESE AND VEAL CANNELLONI

baked-cannelloni-plated

BAKED VEG CHEESE AND VEAL CANNELLONI

We use the other white plant meat for this fine American-Italian casserole. Veg veal! I think I’ve had veal once or twice aside from a luncheon sandwich meat called veal loaf back in the long ago days. I recall it not having much flavor – not the loaf that tasted more like bologna, but the fresh pounded cutlets.

Mild in flavor, soft when ground, which is what we did here. We, meaning me. I figured I must have had some divine or other intervention help on this one, since I nailed it first time. On my birthday too! Had no idea I’d be cooking today. Must be that Alpha Lipoid Acid I’m taking that fixes fatigue. It works.

What a treat. OMGod does this have meat in it? And the sauce!! All so rich, all so wonderful!

Makes 14 stuffed cannelloni

SPREADABLE CHEESE FOR SANDWICHES

AFC CHEESE BUTTER 6

SPREADABLE CHEESE FOR SANDWICHES

Textures and tastes like American mild cheddar singles before they were wrapped individually in plastic. It spreads easily, right from the refrigerator. No need to heat – it’s creamy enough so that it doesn’t need it. The large yield was designed for restaurants. If making this at home you might want to cut the recipe in half. Use on any sandwich that you would normally use cold single slices. Veggie cold cuts, subs, burgers, gyros etc. It works and it works well. It’s not meant for grilled cheese sandwiches. We have another cheese mix for that: PREMELTED VEGGIE CHEESE for grilled cheese sandwiches.

Makes 8-1/2 cups
