I grew up as a typical DMV girl – crabs, fish, shrimp, crab cakes, etc! In fact, I could open my own crabs at 3 years old. Ma used to say “if you are old enough to eat it, you are old enough to learn how to eat it.” My Mother could get down on some crabs, so she did not have time to get hers and help me get mine in the process.
When I stumbled upon Daiya’s Mac & Cheeze at Publix, I thought that it would taste chalky, but I was so wrong! It was very reminiscent of Kraft’s Mac & Cheese, thus very reminiscent of seafood Fridays with Mommie. I started to wonder what would go with the mac & cheeze. I searched the fridge and all I had on hand was kale, mushrooms, onions and carrots, so I made a stir-fry. Not exactly ideal, but whatever. . .
After thinking about it a little more, I discovered that I could pair my favorite vegan crab cakes with it or better yet, my favorite vegan fish – Gardein Golden Fishless Filets! Ya’ll, these filets are theeee best! You must try! They are sold anywhere that veggie burgers are sold.
Caveat: This is not a healthy vegan meal, but it’s soooo satisfying! Live a little and get your grub on this week. Oh, if you want something green, throw in some frozen green beans or fresh spinach. This is the perfect quick and tasty meal! Go for it.
