Drop It Like It’s… Cheddar Drop Biscuits

Cheddar Biscuits

Cheddar Biscuits… Cheddar Bay Biscuits… Cheddar Drop Biscuits!

Back in the day, my mom and her friends would often grab lunch at Red Lobster. It was their thins to get together and gossip. I honestly don’t know if they dug their meals so much, but they did enjoy cramming those Cheddar Bay Biscuits in their mouths (and purses).

We’re going to be completely honest here. Tonight’s dish was an unplanned surprise. We originally set out to make yummy salad taco, BUT…that didn’t happen. Instead, we ended up making a taco soup, sort of. What made us change gears was the fact that the intended dressing, was too watery to use atop the salad filling. So, instead of wasting the dressing, we used our faithful Vitamix and blended it for several minutes until it yielded a pretty good take on a fresh soup.

So what was in the dressing-turned-soup-base? It had a block of silken tofu, lemon juice, shallots, garlic, cilantro, tomato paste, chipotle spice, black pepper and agave nectar. To add a little cheesiness, nutritional yeast made for a nice touch. All the ingredients were whipped up in 6 minutes in our Vitamix!

Plopping refried beans, tomatoes, salsa, shredded carrot, lettuce with a garnish of hot sauce and cilantro made the dish easy on the eyes and pleasant in our tummies. This isn’t the first time, and certainly won’t be the last time that a recipe went awry and needed saving. But, as other with other ad-hoc dinners, we were pretty happy with the results.  If you’re interested in the recipe, we don’t have one, as this was a true whip-up.
