"sailing the seas of cheese" is one of my favorite albums by primus. les claypool is one cool dude. since going vegan, i've learned that i actually fare quite well without the stuff. even during the beginning stages of this pregnancy when i confessed to y'all that i struggled and have exercised a flexetarian muscle or two, the dairy-go-round backfired miserably. i have become lactose intolerant, quite literally. thank g-d for that blessing!
and i haven't really found a vegan cheez i've liked. the commercial stuff is way too expensive. last channukkah, mr. jewy got me the ultimate uncheese cookbook by jo stepaniak. i've tried 4 or 5 of the recipes and there's one that i really have come to love: the tangy hot or cold chedda sauce on page 69. to make it more awesome i added 1T of samba oelek and a handful of spanish olives in the blender with the recipe. yowza, that's a spicy cheez sauce!
i put it to good use on these here nachos
close-up! say cheeze!
