In the interest of purity, I followed the instructions on the tube to make a special treat for my poor little health foodie baby who gets mac and cheese only in the form of Jerusalem artichoke pasta or homemade pesto. I got out the quinoa elbow mac and cooked it up right with some cheesy sauce.
The first thing I noticed as the sauce warmed with the pasta is that it not only thickened like my homemade cornstarch-based sauces, but it was stretchy and gooey like dairy cheese. Also, the flavor had a great tang that I think I recall cheddar tasting like (it's been a while, so forgive me if I'm off). There's definitely a tang different from other vegan cheeses though, of that I am sure. It was delicious, and I highly recommend it.
But you don't have to take my word for it (I home Reading Rainbow doesn't have that trademarked...). Violet was a huge fan. I haven't seen her eat anything so voraciously since I gave her her first cookie.
|Carefully using the fork. After she tasted how good it was, this quickly was replaced by fist fulls to the mouth.|
