Vegan Mofo Day 20: Apple Apple Sausage Macaroni & Cheese With Broccoli

Day 20 The Nitty Gritty!
The nostril pathways are clear and everything is all systems go for New York City Saturday! So tonight's dinner had to be a very special affair, especially due to all of the excitement from buying new items and the sickness finally fading away. Thanks Whole Foods. Thanks holy angels for the gracious timing.
Field Roast is a creative, boundary breaking company that has been praised for ages and continues to craft innovative proteins to eat alongside our potato and veggie dinners. Now the time has come for me to put them to the test starting with their vegan Smoked Apple Sausage (many of my IG friends are fans). In this recipe instead of using oil, I pan fried the sausage slices with apples, onions, and water, letting the flavors marry and simmer brilliantly. I loved Apple Broccoli French Bread Pizza and feel that this perfectly mirrors wonderful combination. Field Roast's Smoked Apple Sausage flared things up a bit, scenting the kitchen with the loveliest aroma.
A slice of Daiya's provolone (good job guys!), white miso paste, and almond milk creams up this flavorful gourmet version of macaroni and cheese- topped with extra diced apples that bring out the eloquence of the smoked sausage.
After two mouthfuls, I swear vegan never tasted better.
