Mocha chip muffin bread (and a pic of my falafel lunch!)

Mocha chip muffin recipe made into bread. Didn't have soy yogurt so I subbed applesauce. Also chopped up chocolate almond bark instead of chocolate chips. I had to bake it longer, about 35 minutes or so.

Baked cheesy pasta

I made baked cheesy pasta shells today. I used jarred marinara added to sautéed onion, peppers and mushrooms to bulk it up. I also made a vegan bechamel which is basically:

3 tablespoons margarine
1 1/2 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 1/2 cup soymilk
1/2 tsp salt
Pinch of nutmeg
Black pepper

Melt margarine over med heat. Whisk in flour and nutritional yeast. Slowly add soymilk little by little and stir constantly until thickened. Add salt, nutmeg and black pepper.

So then I layered cooked pasta, bechamel, vegan cheese, red sauce two times in a baking dish.  Top layer with more cheese and bake 30 - 35 minutes 375 degree F oven.

I can buy vegan cake from the shop!

My friend gifted my family with this beautiful cake that she got from Whole Foods! I'm always sad when I see cakes at the supermarket that are never vegan. I'm glad I have this option now. It is so decadent!
