Mac N' Chez Plez!

Welcome to our second blog post.

Thank you very much for all of the support with our first Veggie Reaper post, over 170 views... What!!! We SO appreciate the interest. We have a Veggie Reaper classic favorite below after our mini update.

We hope you all had a great Plants Giving!

We spent the day at the Iowa Farm Sanctuary with some pretty rad folks, we gathered for a potluck and spent the afternoon caring for the residents. We veganized one of our favorite cheesy potato dishes Nikki's mom is infamous for. "Texas Potatoes" Perhaps those will make it in a blog post, or you'll have to wait for our future cook book!

Diva the Mastiff joined us for Plantsgiving for some time away from the shelter, and was adopted to her forever home earlier this month!

Atomic, Nikki's salon was open for Shop Small Saturday and we shared our dips, cookies, and hot cocoa with guests. We also carried Wild Culture Kombucha from Iowa City, and Kae Apothecary Teas from Mt. Vernon. It was great to see you all!! Looking forward to having more events like this. Shop Local. :)

Are you ready for your new recipe of the month? OH YEAH!

We bring to you the comfort food of plant based Mac N' Chez. Rich of savory flavors, non dairy creaminess, created with simple plant based ingredients that are easy to put together for any level of foodie. This isn't the mac you may have grew up with, but it's damn delicious. Plan a head for this meal, or go for it last minute - you choose your hunger fate.

No cashews? Just add extra cooked potatoes and carrots in place. Don't have yellow potatoes - try any kind! This is one of those meals you can bend the rules, enjoy the process...taste along the way.

You've got a chez sauce now so pour it over anything veggie, we promise you won't regret. Add the salt and pepper as you go to enhance the flavors.

Enjoy your Mac N' Chez and share your dishes with us online!
