[UltraVid id=88 ][Music] hey everyone its Caitlin and welcome to another video in this video I’m going to show you five vegan comfort food meal ideas that you can make on any budget when I think of comfort food I think of cozy warm cheesy potato a soupy goodness so if any of that sounds good to you definitely stay tuned so like all of my other five under five video series I spent around twenty-five dollars on all of the grocery items that you need to make these recipes but each individual recipe cost less than $2 per serving this video is also extra special because it is a collaboration with my friend Rose of cheap lazy vegan but I’m actually going to let her introduce herself and tell you what she’s making today hello beautiful people my name is rose and I run the channel over here on cheap lazy vegan so the name is pretty self-explanatory but I do tons of easy and delicious and affordable vegan meal ideas and recipes so if you guys are into that sort of thing then come on over to my channel and say hello today I will be making five comforting breakfast dishes for under $25 these are super yummy super satisfying and perfect for a nice weekend brunch so if you guys would like to see what I’m making then don’t forget to check out my video after you watch Caitlin’s delicious video I can’t wait to see where you’re making Kaitlyn well Rose we’re definitely going to making some delicious food over here on my channel so let’s get straight to it so first up we’re going to be making some macaroni and cheese and this recipe only costs 89 cents per serving so to start out we’re going to be making our cheese sauce by adding some potatoes and carrots into a pot then we’re just going to bring this to a boil and then once it’s boiling let it simmer for about 8 minutes or so until the potatoes and carrots are fork tender then you can drain them from the pot and add them to a food processor with some nutritional yeast plant-based milk apple cider vinegar garlic powder salt and some tahini as well then we’re just going to blend this up for about a minute or so until it makes a thick and creamy sauce and as you can see here it is very luscious so we’re actually going to only be using half of the cheese sauce right now so we can just prepare a serving of dry pasta I use a cup and dry and you just follow your regular package instructions but once your pasta is ready we’re going to add in our cheese sauce to the pot and then stir everything together until it is all well incorporated and the noodles are evenly coated in sauce this recipe is actually on my blog but it’s super delicious and it’s budget-friendly so I had to include it in this video so once you’re done mixing the noodles up you can pop them into a bowl and serve as desired I seriously love this recipe and I’m pretty sure you guys will too it’s one of my favorites but next we’re going to make some baked cheese fries and this recipe only cost the dollar and two cents per serving so we’re actually going to be using the cheese sauce I made for mac and cheese but first we have to make our fry so I just cut up three russet potatoes into fry and then the secret to getting perfect crispy fries is a silicone mat I will link the ones I have in the description of this video but guys this is seriously a game changer a very worthwhile investment so these fries are actually super super simple you’re just going to spread them out on a baking tray making sure they’re not really touching and you can coat them with any seasonings you have on hand I didn’t have any more room in my budget for extra seasonings so I just added a crack of salt to my fries I’m just going to bake them in the oven for 35 minutes at 425 degrees Fahrenheit and once they come out they will look like this they’re perfectly crispy and cooled and brown perfect every single time I swear this concept is foolproof I also have a recipe on my blog for it but then we’re just going to drizzle them with about 1/4 of the cheese sauce so then you get some nice cheesy fries I also think these would be delicious with some vegan chili but they’re pretty dang good on their own as well I eat these every Friday and I’m not even kidding up next we’re going to be making some minestrone soup and this recipe cost the dollar and 31 cents per serving so we’re still budget-friendly over here first we’re going to add some diced onion with a splash of water or oil to a pot along with some Italian seasoning and we’re just going to saute this over a medium heat until the onion is translucent then we’re going to add in some corn some peas chopped carrots a can of fire roasted tomatoes and I would definitely recommend fire roasted tomatoes because this adds a ton of flavor and it’s not that much more expensive we’re also going to be adding some vegetable stock to give some extra flavor to our soup as well as some tomato paste then we’re just going to stir this together to dissolve the tomato paste and bring this up to a simmer as you can see here my soup mix was kind of thick so I decided to add in a little bit of extra water just to thin the soup out a little more depending how you like your soup you can choose fat water or not add water we’re just going to give this a stir bring it to a simmer like I said and then we’re going to let it simmer for about 10 minutes or so to incorporate all of the flavors then after it’s simmered we’re going to add in some cooked pasta just stir that together to make sure it’s evenly distributed and we’re ready to go the recipe on my blog for this will actually serve two people so I think it’s great because you’ll have soupy leftovers and who doesn’t love soup especially in the wintertime also minestrone has always been one of my favorite soups I feel like it’s super satisfying and I always feel great after I eat it because I’m getting in a ton of vegetables up next we’re going to make another soup but this one is going to be potato and broccoli and it costs a dollar in 78 per serving so again we’re going to start out by adding some diced onion a splash of water and a dash of Italian seasoning into a pot I’m going to stir it all together and cook it until the onion is translucent then from here thinks are going to start to get a little bit different we’re going to add in some diced potatoes garlic powder and nutritional yeast and then for our liquids we’re going to add a some vegetable broth but we’re also going to add in a cup of plant-based milk to make things a little bit more creamy and then I’m just adding some salt to taste you’re going to give this a stir and again bring it to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer and let it cook for around ten minutes or so until the potatoes are soft then from here we’re going to scoop out about half of the soup mixture including the potato chunks and put this in a blender and then put it back into the soup bowl and stir it in and this helps the soup to have a thicker and more creamy texture to it and I find it much more satisfying in this way then to finish things off I just wanted to add in a little bit of green so I added in about two cups of frozen broccoli that I just thought and chopped up we’re just going to mix that together and we’re good to go again you can serve it however you would like I think this would be great with some extra black pepper or nutritional yeast on top as well but it was also delicious on its own this may not be a traditional potato soup recipe but I personally enjoyed the extra broccoli in it last but not least we’re going to be making some creamy mashed potatoes and this cost a dollar and 18 cents per serving so making mashed potatoes it’s pretty self-explanatory you’re just going to add some chopped potatoes into a pot of water bringing the water to a boil and then cook them for about ten or so minutes until the potatoes are fork tender they’re just going to return them to the pot and I like to add extra flavor to my mashed potatoes by adding some nutritional yeast garlic powder salt and plant-based milk when I’m cooking around three potatoes like I did here I usually start with half of a cup and then you can mix this by hand or use an electric mixer like I’m doing here and have a cuff is usually not enough liquid unless you like your potatoes super thick so you’ll probably end up using somewhere between a 3/4 of a cup and a cup in total depending on how smooth you like your potatoes and personally I like to have potato skins and my mashed potatoes so I left them on but if you don’t like that you can just peel your potatoes beforehand and it will still come out delicious so I topped mine with some black pepper and nutritional yeast because I’m keeping things budget-friendly here if you wanted to make a gravy you totally could I enjoy it mashed potatoes on its own B could also serve some with some peas or some more broccoli on the side whatever suits your fancy and there
