IMPERIAL CHICKEN SALAD
Not your run of the mill chicken salad! I know I said I wasn’t going to cook on Christmas day, after cooking holiday dishes for two weeks, but Steve bought Lilly Belle five pounds of vegan popcorn nuggets for Christmas and I just had to make a chicken salad out of a portion of it. Technically I didn’t cook – I assembled. Like I said, not your ordinary chicken salad. Imperial!
Makes 8 cups

Vegan Parmesan In A Shaker. And yes, it’s made by Follow Your Heart – the same people who make vegan parmesan shreds.
When I can locate it, I carry the shaker in my purse when going to restaurants that don’t serve vegan cheese and just sprinkle it on anything I like. Nobody says a word about it. In fact, most wait staff are intrigued. So don’t be shy, take it with you.
Now, to another matter. We have a problem in Cleveland, Ohio getting these two great products, because the vendors are unreliable. The stores (at least three that I know of) carry it, and they reorder when they’re out, but it doesn’t show up on the next delivery day or week or week after. Frankly, we’re tired of asking where it is.
Follow Your Heart needs to step up their efforts and keep a better eye on what their vendors are doing. They could be ruining your business by not delivering the product. Or maybe it’s a problem at the Follow Your Heart level. Maybe you’re not making enough, shipping enough or just lack efficiency. You need to keep the product in the store. Not every so often, but as close as possible to always. The managers are ordering it. So where is it? Heinen’s is one of those places where they’re having difficulty getting the orders filled. So get on it – so we can rely on these two great products being available when we want them.
Otherwise, we’ll stop wanting your product. It’s too much work to be your word of mouth advertisers, then your ‘follow the product’ people to see where it’s going or why it’s not being delivered. We’re not your charity workers. Fix the problem.

I had my doubts. Was I pleasantly surprised. Looked like parmesan, smelled like parmesan, tasted like parmesan. I didn’t even try to melt it, since it tasted so good right out of the container.
The fill is small – in the container. The product is not easily obtainable. I bought mine from Vegan Essentials online. And of course it’s expensive.
I thoroughly enjoyed the miracle of plant parmesan! And Follow Your Heart made it happen. Thank you.
SAUTEED SPIRAL BEETS AND ONION
Great side dish vegetable. Tastes like fatty game. Don’t ask. Just be assured there are no animal products, and enjoy!

Follow Your Heart Provolone textures unlike their other cheeses. In fact, I was surprised to find that it textured much like Field Roasts’s Chao cheeses. Beautiful!
It’s one of those singles that you can eat plain and thoroughly enjoy. The flavor is mild and pleasant. No downside in flavor and texture.
I prefer to sandwich it as is in a veggie sub or sandwich. But it also melts. If using in a sandwich melt, or to top a veg burger, then bring to room temperature first for quicker melting.
ROASTED BEET BURGERS
Large roasted beets, cut into 1/2 inch steaks and served on a pumpernickel bun with veggie mayo, mustard, lettuce, Creamy Original Chao Cheese by Field Roast and Manicini Fried Peppers with Onion. A great way to enjoy a burger if you don’t eat animals and can’t find veggie replacement meats where you live. Made especially for you by me!
Making 1 burger at a time, from previously roasted beets
