This was really good...
(The cheese slices were soy)
Tonight was Fettuccine Alfredo. We had a few substitutions in this recipe. I went to Whole Foods to get vegan Parmesan, only to be told they didn't carry it. The worker told me to use Almond Mozzarella instead. I also bought soy creamer and coconut oil to make up the sauce. We also used spinach pasta instead of whole wheat. Anyway.... I got home and realized the cheese I bought is not vegan. I know, I know, that's two goofs. Well, I used it anyway. It contains a milk protein I wasn't looking for when I bought it. Besides, I thought the man at Whole Foods would know. Apparently not.
It was a terrific recipe anyway. My kids ate all of it. The middle boy even asked for a second helping. I want to make it again WITH the right cheese. I'm hoping the large Whole Foods will carry it. My husband pointed out AFTER I had eaten a big helping of it that coconut oil is reeaaallly fattening. So, we might not have it that often ;)
See you tomorrow for my first weigh in!
