View Full Version : Tofutti
03-14-2008, 09:28 AM
My daughter's preschool serves all-vegan snacks, but unfortunately not all whole foods. Yesterday my daughter ate Tofutti on a bagel...nothing new for her, but this morning she was very constipated, crying, etc, and I know it's the processed food. She LOVES tofutti but agrees that she'd rather not eat it and have an easier time in the bathroom.
I haven't tried any raw cream cheese recipes...does anyone have any recommendations or any that I should not try b/c they're not good?
My daughter will really appreciate it, thanks!

Alissa has a BUNCH of "cheeses" in her book.

I looked at those, but do they actually taste similar?

I don't remember. Haven't made them in awhile. I do remember them tasting good though.

A cashew or macadamian nut cheese with maybe some added fruit blended in would be a great substitute.
Are the bagels eggless by the way?
Just curoious as to how being really all vegan that effects the preschools bottem line...
I know that during the brief 6 week stint my little people were in preschool they wanted a pediatricians note just to skip meat and milk. ABSURD I thought, but anyway.
I know of Adventist school facilities that manage the vegetarian option well, but it does end up being a bunch of processed garbage after a while.
Oh back to your question.
I'd think a nice fruit spread would be delicious on bagel.:p

We buy really good vegetarian digestive enzymes in vegi-caps, and my almost 5 yr old eats them all the time. She just chews them up cap and all. You might want to try that - just give her some with the cooked meals you serve her and before bed. You can mix the contents into food if she can't eat or swallow the caps. Good luck!

The onion dip recipe in Alissa's book is very similar to cream cheese. The trick to getting that really cream cheese consistency is to soak the mac nut for a good long while, maybe 24 hours. Of course, with your DD you may want to remove the onion step, but you'll see in the recipe they are added last. I'd love to hear how she likes it ~
