Comfort food for a different palate

Hello dear readers,  I am back. It has been a very topsy turvy few months and things aren’t settling down quite yet. I’ve decided to return to cooking. How often you will get a posting remains to be seen, but I do hope it is more than once in six months.

So. Comfort food. I’ve been turning to a lot of that lately. The ultimate comfort food for me is macaroni and cheese. However, I love the kind made from scratch. The KD kind will do in a pinch. The first of my two recipes is vegan.

If you’ve followed any of my previous entries, you will know I have a soft spot for avocados. So. Take two ripe avocados and mash them coarsely. Some pieces are good,  but you also want a creamy texture. To this add a half tsp of salt, a tsp of sugar, a tbsp lemon juice,  and a half tsp of chili pepper flakes. Once you mix this all together,  toss it with some pasta And olive oil. Enjoy warm. I promise it tastes delicious!

The second recipe takes one package of ready made kraft dinner. To it, add some meat or faux meat of your choice,  vegetables,  and are you ready: a can of your favourite baked beans. A friend made this at one point and since then it has been my go to dish whenever I want comfort,  satisfaction,  and something cheap and quick to make.

Quesadilla any night of the week

I know what you’re thinking… “Second post in a day?” I know, I’m shocked too!

So, the other night, I got home from school and really needed some kind of dinner… and was really lazy to actually MAKE anything. So, I had a couple of tortillas in the fridge that were close to the expiry, and wraps sounded boring. This will serve two. For only one serving, using one tortilla and wrap it over itself.

Ingredients

2 – 10 inch tortillas

1/2 cup vegetables (I had mushrooms, and peppers)

1/4 cup cheese grated

1/2 cup protein – The reason I say protein is that in this case I used soy, but you could use tofu, meat, or even scrambled eggs

2 tbsp. tomato sauce, or other kind of sauce

Directions

Lay a tortilla on an aluminum tray, or just something that is oven-safe. Spread sauce. Top with other ingredients. Cover with other tortilla. Bake at 400 for 10 minutes.

Now, I know this sounds simple, but you will not believe how good the finished product looks… Serve this in wedges with sour cream, salsa, guacamole (the recipe is here!), only the latter of which I had.

 

Looks good, doesn’t it? I know.

Enjoy!
