We don't always have time to create new and exciting meals. Mostly we just have our standards that we make during the work week, something that will take little time and use up whatever we happen to have in the fridge.
db's stir-fried veg with quinoa was delicious even if he didn't intend to make blackened tofu. He just has a way with seasoning and making sauces that I can't match so his stir-fried veg is always tasty.
This mac and daiya cheese was a plan B that I had to put together quickly when I realized that I didn't have all of the ingredients to make Chickpea Cutlets from Veganomicon. I used wild rice mac noodles, a sauce I made with cheddar daiya cheese, and lacinato kale, which I could almost eat everyday (I exaggerate of course).
Have you tried daiya? Most of the feedback I've had has been really positive, and I know that I love it. It's so melty good and the cheddar is perfect for a sauce or quesadillas, nachos, grilled cheese etc...
