Vegan calamari

A few months ago I bought some vegetarian squid from May Wah just to see if I could make vegan calamari. Since then, the packages have been sitting in my pantry just waiting for me to feel adventurous. That feeling came to me last night so here is my recipe for vegan cajun calamari with a chipotle aioli sauce. Enjoy.

Vegan Cajun Calamari
2 packages vegetarian squid
1/4 cup flour
2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
5 Tbsp. Cajun seasoning
oil for frying
Preheat the oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oil is heating mix the flour, nutritional yeast and Cajun seasoning together in a bowl. Open the packages of vegetarian squid and rinse. Dip vegetarian squid pieces in flour mixture and thoroughly cover them. Then, place the pieces in the oil for 3 minutes of until golden brown. Serve with aioli dipping sauce.

Chipotle Aioli Sauce

1/4 cup Veganaise or the vegan mayonnaise of your choice
3 Tbsp. chipotle mustard
Juice of half a lime
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Set aside.

Makes 4 servings.
