Mother's Day Vegan Lunch

It felt so good cooking with my family and giving my mom the gift of vegan food on Mother's Day. We made portobello lasagna, macaroni & cheese, kale salad and cheesecake.

What she said about each dish:

Kale salad-It was her 1st time having it and she said it was delicious

Mac & cheese-commented that it looked like conventional mac & cheese but didn't taste like it to her.  She did say it was good but her taste buds expected a more "cheesy" flavor since it looks like traditional mac & cheese.

Cheesecake-loved it!

Lasagna-She called it her favorite of the 4 dishes and asked for the recipe to make it later.
