Hello & Happy Tuesday!!
If there is one thing that I thought would be had to replicate in the world of vegan cuisine, it was seafood. How could you possibly capture the lobster like flavor? Come to find out, you can easily mirror that seafood flavor by just using seaweed, kelp flakes and other options. Mind blown.
Years ago I tried this with creating a classic Lobster Bisque. The flavor was so on point, that I just knew.. you could easily do a Lobster Mac + Cheese! ( I was right )
One could ask, where is the vegan lobster in this dish? However, if you’ve ever has traditional Lobster Mac + Cheese, there is rarely much lobster in it at all. They derive most of the lobster like flavor from a broth I’d imagine.
So what’s great about this dish? Everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, perfect for any season, can easily be made in bulk, great for entertaining, perfect as a meal or side dish, features staple ingredients, packs veggies and protein, you can add more seaweed to amplify the seafood like flavor, has notes of white wine, you can modify the consistency, it’s rich, creamy, packed with flavor, has a hint of heat, you can add breadcrumbs on top, garnish with more OLD BAY, and can even turn a non vegan head over heels for this dish! promise!
If you love innovative vegan eats, you have to try this new vegan Lobster Mac + Cheese!
