More Retro Food

Vegans like to recreate their childhood favorites. Stuff you'd thought you'd outgrown, like mac'n'cheese, chicken nuggets, and fish sticks become challenges. For instance, Isa Chandra Moskowitz created this Tempeh Helper recipe, and it's hilariously on target. I laughed out loud alone in my kitchen when I tasted it.
To go along with it I unwittingly followed the theme by making jae steele's Almond Chocolate Creem Pie. It's french silk, vegan style. I used peanut butter and peanuts instead of almond butter and almonds. Though I bet it would be even more fantastic with the almond theme, I had peanut stuff on hand. Either way, it's a make-your-teeth-itch rich, creamy, smooth chocolate cream pie. Just like Village Inn used to make.
