Hi! Wing It Vegan is currently on its annual hiatus. It might take me a while to reply to comments, messages, emails, love letters, hate mail, and all that good stuff. I had to turn on that hateful word-verification thingie for comments due to too much spam - it is rather annoying, sorry about that! Thanks for stopping by!

Quesadillas with Coconut Milk Cheddar

Grab a napkin and prepare your salivary glands for overproduction! Who wants some Vegan Quesadillas with Coconut Milk Cheddar? Whoa! Whoa! One customer at a time, people! Take a number!


Coconut Milk Cheddar
Droolfest!

This amazing recipe comes via Sweet Roots. I thought it would be very coconutty, because my tastebuds can detect the smallest hint of anything, but that's really all the coconut flavor there was in this cheese - the smallest hint. And that's being super picky. The liquid smoke, smoked paprika, and nutritional yeast take over and replace the coconutty flavor with smoky cheesy goodness. It's made without any added oils, but the coconut milk fat makes this cheese plenty "melty" and gooey all by itself. This recipe has absolutely made it to my favorite recipes binder! Thank you, Mary!

Today's Netflix find is the one and only Doc Martin! Poor Doc Martin was a big shot surgeon in London until an incident at the OR left him unable to operate because he couldn't stand the sight of blood anymore. He packed his stuff and moved to the fictional town of Portwenn (Port Isaac in real live) in Cornwall where he now practices general medicine. The town is beautiful. The very friendly characters who don't know how to stay out of other people's business drive the poor doc crazy. Doc Martin is not particularly fond of other people and he is often annoyed by all the quirky locals. He is actually quite vile. There is a certain someone that he does like, even though he manages to ruin every possible romantic moment by saying something inappropriate!

    1. Coconut hater! :P

      I definitely didn't think this cheese was coconutty. I hope your taste buds agree with mine!

    1. It is pretty miraculous! Ducks sure love their water - which reminds me that tomorrow I need to share the video of the rescued ducks at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary being introduced to water - you know, in case there is one person in the whole world who hasn't seen it yet! It's gone viral!

    And aww, it's like he's doing the duck equivalent of sticking your tongue out in the rain!

    1. And it's soy free! I actually had another coconut milk cheddar quesadilla for lunch today. So tasty!

      Now I should try to take a picture of a duck doing the same thing on a snowy day :)

  8. Looks just like the real thing, so I'll probably stay away, because feeding the cheese monster becomes a real problem for me!

    1. I know! It's hard not to let the cheese monster take over and melt the stuff over everything. It doesn't help that it's relatively inexpensive and very easy to make.
