VeganMoFo: 80's dinner.



V-con Chickpea Cutlet + Mac Daddy w. Asparagus Saute


This dinner reminded me of a meal my mom use to make us when we were little. That version was Kraft mac and cheese and breaded chicken..probably served w. peas. The new and improved version is Veganomicon's Mac Daddy and Chickpea Cutlets.

The Mac Daddy recipe was one of the first recipes that caught my eye in the book. I was a little wary of it because of the tofu. I love tofu but I just couldn't see why it was in the recipe. After making it and eating it I can see why it's in there. First it's delicious. Second, the tofu gives a nice creamy texture and just adds that extra something to the dish. When the Mac Daddy came out of the oven I knew right away that Peter wouldn't like it and I knew right away that I would like it. When Peter walked into our apartment he immediately says somthing about the smell, in not a good way, then says it smells cheesy, which also isn't good because he never liked cheese. Even though this doesn't taste like mac and cheese at all I think just the though of cheese turned him off. I made him taste it..and it was a no go. Luckily it supposedly freezes well, which is where 1/2 of it will go. The other 1/2 will be my lunch thru the rest of the week.

This was my second time making the Chickpea Cutlets from the same book. I really liked them the first time I made them but for some reason they came out even better this time. I'm not sure what I did different. They were so good I ate two. I was really hungry tonight.

Oh how I wish I was able to get this cookbook! I have it on order at the Public Library, who knows how long that will be {sigh}...

Everything that everyone posts always looks so yummy!

That Mac Daddy was so good. I was the only one eating it when I made it and somehow I managed to eat it all in a week. Granted, I had it at most meals for that week... The tofu was a great texture addition in my opinion. I was a little skeptical, too, but after trying it, the tofu totally gets my vote.

Good timing! I've been thinking of making mac & cheeze, but have tried so many bad recipes, that I'm nervous. This one looks good, and I have the cookbook! :)

Oh, the Chickpea cutlets are a great addition to the dinner. I may have to duplicate your exact dinner here! ;)

I need to try Mac Daddy! For some reason I wasn't sure about it just looking at the recipe (maybe also the tofu?) but you've convinced me...
