Vegan Chicken And Rice Alfredo w/Steamed Soy Vegetables

 It's not that hard to come up with some creative and tasty vegan dishes.  You only need to know where to look for the best ingredients, and have the right amount of inspiration.  There are two big name markets that know just how to cater to the growing vegan community.  Whole Foods and Trader Joes both carry a long line of delicious products that can turn your favorite meal into a vegan delight.  My inspiration? Seanna and Sean.  Thanks girls. This is a nice cozy two serving recipe.

4 365 Everyday Value Breaded Chickenless Patties (sold at Whole Foods)
3 TBS Olive Oil

3 Cups Cooked White Rice Lightly Seasoned with salt and pepper

4 TBS Earth Balance Butter
1 1/2 TBS Italian Seasoning
5 TBS Daiya Cream Cheese


Heat olive oil in skillet on medium heat.  Add Chickenless Patties once oil is hot and sprinkle with Salt and Pepper.  After 5 minutes turn patty and sprinkle other side with salt and pepper.  Cook an additional 5 minutes and remove skillet from heat. Spread 1 1/2 cup of hot cooked white rice on a dinner plate and top with two patties.

Heat butter in a sauce pan and stir in Italian Seasoning.  Whisk in Cream Cheese until completely melted and sauce is creamy smooth.  Pour over chikenless patties and garnish with a sprinkle of Oregano.
