Vegan MoFo ~ Childhood Food VEGANIZED & Happy Mail

It's the 2nd day of Vegan MoFo and I wanted to stick with today's PROMPT which is to "recreate a meal from your childhood."  Well, this isn't really a complete meal per say but it was what I had for dinner last night and it certainly hit the spot!  Cheesy Broccoli!  YUM!  Yup!  That's 'from scratch' vegan cheese sauce!

Here's the recipe for the Vegan Cheese Sauce:

2 C Raw Cashews
3 T Lemon Juice
1 C Water
1/4 C Nutritional Yeast
1 t Minced Garlic
1/2 t Turmeric
About 1 t Yellow Mustard
Pinch of Cayenne Pepper & Black Himalayan Sea Salt

Remember you can join MY Vegan MoFo Blogroll by commenting on THIS post.  I decided to make one since I didn't see a 2015 BlogRoll on the VeganMoFo.com site.

I thought I would also show you my latest shipment from The Raw Food World!  They now have tote's!  YAY!  They are ONLY $2.95 and I LOVE them!  For the direct link to these neat reusable bags CLICK HERE!


The Raw Food World recently got a whole slew of new items from Chocola Tree and I HAD to scoop them up!  CLICK HERE to see them all!  There are Raw Vegan Wraps, Raw Vegan Flatbreads, Nori Nachos, and Raw Vegan Cheddar Cheese Sprinkle as well as Raw Vegan Parmesan Cheese Sprinkle.


Just for good measure I did a close up on the vegan cheese sprinkles!


I ended up getting a few items for friends and family, too, but then I wanted to try these 3 new-to-me Living Nutz flavors.  They also have some new Vegan Coconut Bacon which are on sale this month for only $4.55!  It was also time for me to re-order cashews and salad booster, too!  I finally decided to get some Camu Camu Powder as well!


I added to my Raw & Vegan Book Stash with these 4 books!  I was luck enough to meet Karen Ranzi at the WNY VegFest last month so I wanted to grab her book.  I have first Raw Foods For Busy People so I figured I should grab the 2nd one, too!  I have been into learning about fermentation and added to that category.  And then the Raw Food Nutrition Handbook looked interesting so I decided to go with that one, too!  Have you read any of these books yet?

  
At-Cost Specials

I've had a lot of questions from people lately about purchasing from The Raw Food World!  If you click the banner above you will see all of the 'At Cost Specials' this month!  That's a great place to start looking!  And remember you can also save 7% on your order with the code rawfood7.

What do you think of my latest haul?  And what do you think about the veganized childhood dish?

  9. Mmm, your cheesy broccoli looks so creamy and satisfying. I sometimes use the Heidi Ho cheese sauce on my broccoli for a quick and easy variation. (by the way, over at MoFo central, we should have the blogrolls up soon - we're a little group of volunteers, trying to keep it all going, and we had a few technical glitches. Hopefully tomorrow!

    Love the sound of your cheeze broccoli. It actually isn't a dish I liked in my pre-veg days, but this version sounds totally delicious.
    And your haul from Raw Food World looks so fun!

  13. Anything with broccoli is a winner with me at the moment- when we were little we used to call them 'green tree's'!

  14. Your cheese sauce looks great! This is definitely a childhood food memory for me, too! Melted cheese over broccoli was the only way my dad could get me to eat broccoli when I was little! Today, broccoli is my favorite vegetable! :D

    1. That's cool! Thanks for commenting! With all of the vegan cheeses I have made I think the ones with cashews give it the best texture and take away some of the yeast-iness of the nooch.
