VEGAN Smoked Gouda Beer Cheese, Recent Finds, & Power Bowl!
But before I get to the recipe I have some 'explaining to do'.
For a week now I have been talking about our last trip over to Ohio and our visit to Mustard Seed Market, well, I have some new-to-me items to blog about along with some additional finds from my travels today!
First up...I FINALLY got my hands on Daiya's Smoked Gouda! I have been searching for this stuff for about 8 months and I was able to find it at Mustard Seed Market in Solon, Ohio! That's about 3 hours from my home so this will be a treat until I find it closer. I have to say I'm a HUGE fan already! It might be a good thing that I don't have access to this vegan cheese often or I would probably have to eat it daily. I ate about half of it in small chunks as a side to my meals but I wanted to try to make something with it, too, so I ended up making a Gouda Beer Cheese - VEGAN!
10 T Light Beer
1 T Flour
1/2 Block Daiya Smoked Gouda, Shredded
2 T Plain, Unsweetened Vegan Yogurt
Yellow Mustard (Very Small Squirt)*
* = or to taste
If you would like this thicker just add a little bit more flour.
This was OUT OF THIS WORLD if I do say so myself!
While we were at Feel Rite I grabbed a Meyer Lemon Kevita. I haven't seen this one where I live so I wanted to grab it. I think I have a new favorite! Then again, I'm partial to Meyer Lemons.
I found at my local Shurfine Market a Wild Rice and Veggie Blend in the frozen foods section. I found some flatbread that I toasted, and a half of avocado. I also threw in the rest of the Pizza Hummus from the night before.
I still have LOTS to share over the last couple of weeks but I think I will stop there for today.
