I finally found a use for the last few potatoes I had from my shortened potato cleanse. I made Buzzfeed's mac and cheese sauce, but added some cumin, smoked paprika, nutritional yeast, garlic powder and the last little bit of some salsa . Also some generous drops of hot sauce.
I cooked up some white beans and some macaroni pasta and made spicy mac and cheese.
I meant to mention this last week, but I forgot because I was way more excited about Ben&Jerry's making not one, but four flavors of vegan ice cream. Remember last year when Hellmann's was trying to sue Just Mayo and try to make them change their name? It was so ridiculous, and I'm so glad that the public outcry was so huge! Anyway, I guess in honor of "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em"
Hellman's is now launching their very own vegan mayo! I personally won't buy the product for a couple of reasons, one being I love Just Mayo, and two being I don't like Unilever which is the evil parent of Hellman's.But I still think this is amazing news because people are creatures of habit, and there are people who are very close minded, and scared of anything new, or gourd forbid vegan. But Hellmann's is a good corn fed brand that has been in peoples lives clogging their arteries for generations. So, that familiar brand could be less scary. And like I said yesterday, if someone is scared of vegan food, but tastes something that is pleasing, it might make them more willing to try other vegan foods. Plus, we have to start somewhere. Let's wipe out all non vegan mayo. Just Mayo has proven we don't need eggs to make the stuff. So, I think this is good news for chickens, and I am very happy that there is enough of a demand that they are getting in on the game. Remember when you were lucky to find a store that carried veganaise? What do you think of Hellmann's stepping into the vegan mayo game?
