As I mentioned, I made a Shepherd's Pie last night that was not all that post-worthy so I have decided to write about one of our old favorites-Rich and Creamy Low-Fat Vegan Alfredo which we affectionately refer to as "Tofredo." I know I have told you about this before but it is definitely on our regular menu so I thought it deserved some recognition. I always add black pepper and 1-2 cloves of minced garlic. I generally use Galaxy Foods Vegan Grated Topping-Parmesan Flavor or just Nutritional Yeast for the Soy Parmesan. I am not crazy about this grated topping and if you have a better idea, let me know. I have heard about Parma which is made out of walnuts but have not tried it yet. Looking at its ingredients, I could probably make my own in the food processor since I have all the ingredients.
I was thinking that I liked having a loose "theme" (like Burgers) to help steer me toward new recipes. Any ideas for a new one? I have a bunch of burgers in the freezer now and lots of ideas too! I want to eat less pasta but that is what my family likes so they will always be part of our menus. Of course, sweets are ALWAYS on my list also since I want to fatten M up!
