Mashed Potato Time – Fakin’ Bacon-tastic!

Posted on January 19, 2010 in the Uncategorized category

I love Veganuary! Why? It’s always on my mind when I eat PLUS I’m having fun challenging myself to find Veggie meals when I’m on the town.

But tonight was a stay at home and cook for the Rohans night. I threw this recipe together quickly – it’s a slight variation of my baked cauliflower recipe - and goes to show that I can scrounge up anything from the fixin’s in our fridge and Rob will eat it. That’s why I love him so much.

Here’s the scoop for Fakin’ Bacon-tastic Mashed Potatoes:

Boil water – put cut potatoes in and cook until soft.

Fry Bacon – I LOVE Vegie Delights Bacon-Style Rashers from Cole’s. I used about 6 or so pieces in olive oil. Fry until crispy – as crispy as fake bacon can get. Let drain and cool – cut up into little chunks.

Boil peas.

Cut Spring Onions.

Shred Soy Cheese – Kemeny’s in Bondi has an incredible Low Chol Soy Bean Cheese. It’s out of this world and melts/tastes like REAL cheese. Huzzah!

Mash potatoes and put in baking dish. Layer peas, bacon, spring onions & cheese on top. A little dash of  cayenne pepper for the top and bake at 200 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes until cheese melts.

IT”S YUMMY and easy and fun and healthy. What more to life is there?

Happy Veganuary – but don’t despair! I’ve decided to continue with Veguary and Vegarch. I’ll keep cooking if you (my 3 readers) keep visiting!

Hasta la vista, baby and happy eating!
