How do I love thee? Let me count the ways!
In the weeks leading up to his birth, I stocked the freezer with as much food as I could. I got some inspiration from one of my Mom's non-vegetarian casserole cookbooks.
Elbow macaroni with everything I might top a pizza with: garlic stuffed green olives, black olives, tomatoes, bell peppers, chopped soy pepperoni, ground up veggie burgers (Amy's), Italian seasoning, Daiya cheese, and onions. If I would have had shiitakes on hand, I would have added those, as well.
Tater Tot Casserole
First, I made chili using several kinds of beans and carrots, bell peppers, tomatoes, etc. I'm lovin' the Eden brand of tomato products minus BPA.
I topped the chili with Daiya and frozen tater tots.
It was every bit as delicious as I had hoped for.
Kale Tofu Lasagna
Apparently nothing says casserole to me better than Daiya.
Beans, rice, kale, corn tortillas, homemade enchilada suace (using more of Eden's tomato products), and cheezey sauce. I actually made the cheezey sauce primarily because by this point I was thinking, "I can't put Daiya on every one of them!"
I'm getting nostalgic thinking back to the time I had all of this food ready to eat in my freezer.
Those were the days.
