Vegan Mac N Cheese
We bought some Orgran Gluten Free rice and corn pasta macaroni to try out our Vegan Cheesey Sauce. I posted this photo a little while back on Facebook which some of you may have seen because he was so excited. He loves pasta, and this was the first time he had macaroni.

I used rice milk to make our cheesey sauce, and once I turned the stove up a little bit higher, it started to thicken up nicely. It was the first time we had ever tried this sauce so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Mixed in with gluten-free macaroni, it was a great combination by the look of Zaedyn’s expressions!

He had plenty of servings of vegan cheesey macaroni. I honestly cannot remember the last time that I had macaroni so it was hard to compare, but it did remind me more like a white sauce. I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Either way it was yummy, but I cannot decide what it reminds me of.

Also, it makes 3 cups of sauce which can be a lot depending on how many people will be eating. There are plenty of other possible options to use this sauce with as well including a cheesey sauce on vegetables, lasagna, or even for nachos. We did try a few tortilla chips out in the sauce, and I think it would be perfect for nachos.

Do you eat Angel Food Cheesey Sauce? How do you use it, or what would you like to try it with?

Although Zaedyn was not quite sure what to think of the cream cheese alternative at first, he ended up loving it. He kept asking for “cheese”. When it was all gone, he said, “Oh no! The cheese is gone!” I was laughing as it was just so cute how he said it. We definitely made sure to get some more to enjoy on some gluten-free vegan hot cross buns.
Cherub Dairy Free Cream Cheese
This was another yummy way to use our cream cheese alternative. Obviously softer than bagels, but it reminds me of cinnamon raisin bagels with cream cheese. Yum! The cream cheese didn’t seem as melty this time around, and I put a lot on Zaedyn’s. He would eat all of his “cheese” off the top, and then ask for more.

Check out Cherub Dairy-Free on Facebook as there are different creative ways to use this cream cheese alternative. Would you use the cream cheese alternative as a spread, or in recipes?

Good luck with your entries in the giveaway, and make sure to share every day for extra entries.

Thanks heaps to Alice from Angel Food & Cherub Dairy-Free!

Another product from Angel Food that we eat is Cheezly which is perfect for pizza, cheese toast, toppings for tacos or nachos, quesadillas, added as cubes in pasta salad, or mixed in with scones. Anything you can think of really!

Gluten-Free Vegan Pizza

Standard

vegan pizza
Inspired by me thinking about my first vegan pizza ever from Z Pizza when we were in California. The first time I went was with my twin, and I decided to build my own pizza as I am not a huge fan of tomato sauce or vegan “meat substitutes”. However, I have been back since with the rest of my family and enjoyed the Berkeley Vegan. Everyone in my family isn’t vegan, but they still enjoyed it as well. Actually, we have been a few times now as my sister lives by one and my parents live not too far from another one. Funny to think I grew up not liking pizza so I suppose it isn’t a usual in our house, but vegan pizza is nice to have on ocassion. If you ever have a chance to go to the States and come across Z Pizza, there are lots of vegan options using Daiya vegan cheese and a gluten-free base. Looking at the website now, the veggie crumbles currently contain wheat although you may wish to double check with the store.

I didn’t make my own crust, however if you like thin and crispy pizza, you won’t be disappointed with Venerdi’s Thin & Crispy Pizza Bases. Venerdi has some great gluten-free vegan options. When we come across their Full Flavoured Six Seeds bread, we buy it. I even used the leftover Cheezly to make Zaedyn Cheezly on toast. I am trying to think of all sorts to use this gluten-free base for as David just loved it. I have been looking at making my own crust, but since we have only occasionally made pizza, these have worked for us. I have always been quite curious about making a *cauliflower crust though. We made these over the weekend, but it seems as if everything I am seeing at the moment is pizza. Everyone must be in the mood for vegan pizza :).

Mozzarella Cheezly from Angel Food
Gluten-Free Pizza

Layers of yellow courgette slice (zucchini) and green capsicum (peppers) from our garden and onion between shredded mozzarella cheezly

You can adjust the amount of Cheezly you use. We used quite a lot and it was yummy, but you could easily load up more veggies and use less Cheezly. Although it only lasts 7 days once opened, you can shred and freeze the Cheezly if you want to make it last.

This is a super quick recipe Fan Bake 250 C for 8-10 minutes.

Zaedyn was a bit curious and was busy examining the pizza the first night although still eating his share, but we made it again late the next afternoon and David and I were lucky to get any pizza. We kept hearing “More.” This was after he ate his Cheezly on toast! He must be growing with the amount he is eating. He is just getting so big and is even cutting both bottom 2 year molars. Only 2 more baby teeth to go.

It has been an extremely long time since we made pizza before this weekend. When Zaedyn was just over a year, we made this gluten-free vegan pizza with a kale, hummus, and chopped tomato base topped with onion, broccoli, cauliflower, falafel, tomato, and Cheezly (although I think it may have been Cheddar Cheezly). This was packed pretty high, but super yummy. This was Zaedyn’s first pizza!

Since then, I made another gluten-free vegan pizza inspired by Hell’s Pizza, although not super spicy. We tried Sinister, their vegan pizza, not long before I was due with Zaedyn, and I remember it being pretty hot. This is a pizza without cheese using refried beans on the base, avocado, onions, salsa, tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, and capsicum. Zaedyn loved my version of this as well! Can you believe that I didn’t take a photo of it for some reason?! Guess you will just have to use your imagination and know that this is a yummy vegan pizza where you don’t need vegan cheese.

*Cauliflower Pizza Crust: Just today, Angel Food shared a pizza recipe using a cauliflower base, and I just received a new post email for a cauliflower crust pizza from a new favourite blog Modern Hippie Cooks.

Plus, on the topic of vegan pizza, Jordan from Coexisting with Nonhuman Animals and the Invercargill Vegan Society posted a link to housewarming food including all sorts of vegan pizza toppings. Although most pita bread isn’t gluten-free, it does make a quick easy base which I remember using for David in the past. You may come across some gluten-free pitas which you can try, too.

See, who said vegans can’t eat pizza! There are heaps of yummy options available to make or even eat out. What is your favourite vegan topping for pizza? Any recipe links to share?
