Today we will be making the Creamy Rice Salad with Peas Recipe from Paula Deen’s Southern Cooking Bible vegan. My thoughts, ingredients, measurements, and directions are available below.
Day 27 Recipe 27 Southern Queen of Vegan Cuisine:
This dish was all rice and no action. I really don’t see where the ham could have improved it. Maybe it is my inner big girl talking, but there simply was not enough creaminess. Even after adding more vegan mayonnaise, it still felt like a regular seasoned side of rice. Maybe that is all it was ever supposed to be and I asked too much of it. More flavor, more creaminess, more peas please? Just as in my love life, the call went unanswered.
