Alright, before we even get started I want to make something very clear - Hawaiian Haystacks are not Hawaiian! I lived in Hawaii for several years and never once did I have Hawaiian Haystacks. The first time I had them was at my sister-in-laws house when I was dating my husband....actually, we're still dating ;) Her family is hooked on this delicious dish and since she has an aspiring vegan in her family, this one is dedicated to her.
Vegan Hawaiian Haystacks
1-2 c vegan cheese
1 tsp sage
2-4 c cooked brown rice
1 bullion cube (vegan chicken if you can get it, if not veggie is fine)
1 can pineapple drained and chopped
1 c water
chopped green onion
crunchy asian noodles
any other fixins that appeal to ya'll
In a sauce pan, warm the vegan cheese, sage, bullion and water to make a sauce the consistence of cream of chicken soup. Now layer the cooked rice, pineapple, celery, other fixins (this is a good time to clean out the fridge!) Now pour on the sauce and top with crunchy asian noodles and green onion. Mmmmm, it's a sight to make a wahine proud!
Note: We found that using a curry sauce instead sends this out of this world! Yum! Which do you think is best?
