I am still undecided about the new kitties. It seems like everyone has an opinion and I can not make everyone happy. For the short term, I am fine with letting them living in my crawl space. I will need to make a choice sometime soon though, for their sakes and mine.
I stumbled on a nice little food creation recently. Not-mashed potatoes. It is very similar to my creamy mashed potato recipe with a few minor changes to keep it a good constancy. These came out great, they were light due to only being boiled but the sauce was strong and flavorful.
3 small red potatoes (cubed)
2 cups of water
2 tablespoon of vegan margarine
1 1/2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
3/4 tablespoon of dill weed
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of pepper
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of paprika
1/2 teaspoon of celery seed
In a pot, add the water and cubed potatoes. I leave the skin on as it has a nice flavor and contains most of the nutrients. Bring to a simmer and let cook for about 20 mins or until the potatoes are tender. Be careful not to over cook, the peels should still be attached. Strain set aside.
In the now empty pot, add all remaining ingredients. The margarine should begin to melt with the heat of the pot. Carefully pour the potato cubes over the margarine sauce. Cover and toss until the sauce has an even coating over the potatoes and all the margarine has melted.
