This is my mom's recipe, adapted from one by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. The amounts listed here make a lot of pancakes, so feel free to cut the amounts in half if you are only cooking for a couple people. If you have any pancakes left over, they are still great the next day.
This way to the yummyCollapse )

The health food store near me ran out of vegan vanilla yogurt and I'm hoping that with a little tweaking, I can use vegan sour cream instead. The recipe is for Cherry Clafoutis.

It's a pancake-type batter poured over cherries and then baked.

The batter ingredients are as follows:

1 c. vegan vanilla yogurt
3/4 c. plain or vanilla soymilk (I have vanilla soymilk)
1/2 c. sugar
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch salt
1 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder

1. The Sour Supreme is a bit thicker than the yogurt I generally get
2. I know I should probably add more vanilla, either soymilk, extract, or both

Any thoughts on how I can adjust the proportions so that the batter is of the right consistency?

ETA: Thanks all for your help! It's in the oven now. I went with ACV in vanilla soymilk and the batter seemed right, so we shall see...

Hey all! Made some delicious Thai(ish) cabbage rolls, and wanted to share. Pretty simple. Innards were mashed sweet potatoes (boiled in curried water) with coconut creamer and Earth Balance, peanut butter, tamari, toasted sesame oil, caramelized red onions, zest of an orange, chopped green onions, chopped cilantro, Tofutti cream cheese, and hot sauce (used some of the green stuff from the mediterranean deli I went to earlier).

Stuffed and rolled six cabbage leaves, poured sauce made with everything except the mashed sweet potatoes with an addition of the juice from the zested orange over it all, and baked for 45 minutes at 350. Turned out so delicious. I may, however, add some gf flour and cornstarch to the innards next time. It would make the texture a bit firmer, but other than that, it was quite lovely.

I made a lot of delicious food for Valentine's Day!

  • spring rolls: http://www.earthyfeast.com/recipe/winter-summer-rolls-orange-ginger-cashew-dip/ but without cabbage and with peanut butter/rice vinegar/soy sauce/sugar dipping sauce instead.  I, like, can’t even explain how tasty these were.  Next time I might use shredded lettuce instead of shredded brussels sprouts for a milder flavor but these were still pretty much a transcendent symphony of flavor.  Not overtly Valentine's Day- like but I think finger food is romantic and these spring rolls definitely taste like special occasion restaurant food.

  • shredded browned brussels sprouts and gluten free penne with vodka sauce. yum!

  • this soup http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipe/vegetarian-tuscan-kale-and-white-bean-soup with heart shaped carrots.  this soup was deceptively delicious.

  • socca (thin crispy chickpea flour crepe) with spinach and italian herbs

Saturday night, I did what any other arsehole would do. I wrote letters to my correspondences, blared my latest mixtape, and watched Bake With Anna Olsen. I tuned into a stellar cookie episode. Lemon Linzer cookies were a part of my childhood. Yeah, so were eggs, and mullets. Those days are now behind me, though I often mullet over. I spent a good while veganizing this recipe and am happy to report they turned out stellar. Plus, what better way to utilize my lovely new CuisinArt mixer?

I usually make these along with cabbage rolls, but when I decided to make them I had absolutely no cabbage at home, so just ended up making tomatoes, which are always my favourites anyway. The recipe is actually pretty simple, the whole preparation takes about 10min plus about 25 min cooking. And the result is of course delicious :)

I made these today and they so easy and so delicious I felt the need to share!  It's awesome that they're vegan, gluten-free and not too unhealthy, yet still taste totally decadent and look beautiful!  perfect holiday gift.

You will need:

vegan semisweet chocolate chips
apricots
sea salt

1.  heat up an inch of water in a saucepan.  put a metal bowl on top of the saucepan and melt the chocolate chips in it.  (my preferred method of melting chocolate chips.  because they are melted by steam, there is no danger of the chocolate burning.  but you can also melt the chocolate chips in the microwave if you prefer.)
2.  cover a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.  one by one, dip apricots in the melted chocolate, then sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt.  you may need to heat the chocolate up one more time halfway through.
3.  let them cool at room temperature until the chocolate has hardened.
enjoy!

I used 2 bags of apricots and 1 1/4 bags of chocolate chips and it yielded about 120 of these bad boys.

If you had $50 to feed 3 people for almost two weeks, what would you buy and what would you make with what you bought?

I really need some grocery advice for cheap but still filling and healthy meals for the next week or two and I'm having a lot of trouble. I live in the east coast USA and here things seem to be moderately priced. I have access to a pretty decent grocery store (Stop and Shop). Any help is much appreciated, especially specific meals! Thanks so much in advance!

Being vegan around the holidays has certainly gotten easier over the years, though I certainly missed my grandmother's fruitcake. All 20 pounds of that wee loaf was something to write home about. Because I don't drink, I had to come up with a spiced something to soak my fruit and nut mix in.. I went with pineapple juice and a big chunk of ginger. It softens the mix and adds a badass kick to everything.

This is a 4-part recipe, which may seem a little terrifying - but in actuality, it's easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

Lately, I've been eating a gluten-free diet. I don't kid myself that I have a gluten allergy or intolerance but I will say I have liked the results of this new diet. I have more energy, less stomach aches, and overall feel better after a meal when avoiding gluten. That being said, I was fearful I'd have to say goodbye to my occasional pancake treat while eating gluten-free, however it turns out my fears were for naught. Today I have a recipe of a lovely set of carrot cake pancakes that are tasty and gluten free!

Doughnuts? Donuts? Little round doughy bits that taste quite alright. I love the smell of pumpkin spice lattes, but a gnarly caffeine allergy deters me from a morning cuppa. That's okay. I found Krakus, from Poland! I picked it up at my local Bulk Barn. Nope, It's not exactly like coffee, because it's made from the extracts of roasted barley, chicory, rye and beet roots. It does have that nice roasted, full, flavour coffee seems to have. I've made this little ditties in mini muffin and mini doughnut pans, and they turned out nice! The glaze is a ganache made of melted dairy-free white chocolate and a few tablespoons of extremely strong Krakus. This would be rad with a dark chocolate as well, I'm sure!

Fall is upon us at last! My favorite season of the year and my favorite flavors of the year. As the cold creeps in so does everything pumpkin flavored, nutmeg, cinnamon, and all those warm spices that heat up any chilly autumn evening. This filling salad hits the spot for all my autumn cravings and it so easy to make!

I've been skipping risotto recipes because I assumed they all had dairy, but this one is vegan and easy and DELICIOUS. (And gluten-free too!)

(recipe from Laura Washburn's The Pressure Cooker Cookbook)

2 Tbsp olive oil
1 small onion or large shallot, finely diced
1 large carrot, 1 cm dice
5 oz/140 g shiitake mushrooms, chopped
1.5 cups/300 g arborio or other risotto-suitable rice
3.25 cups/750 g broth
1 cup/140 g fresh or frozen peas

In the pressure cooker over high heat, cook oil, onion/shallot, carrot, and mushrooms until the mushroom liquid has cooked off and the vegetables have caramelized, about 10 minutes. Add rice and stir a lot to coat the rice with the oil. Let cook 1 minute. Pour in broth and cover. Pressurize and cook at high pressure for 4 minutes. Quick-release pressure. Add peas and heat 3–5 minutes, stirring frequently, until most of the remaining broth has been absorbed. Let sit, covered, 5–10 minutes. Add salt, pepper, and fresh parsley to taste. Makes three hefty servings. (To make a double batch, double the ingredients but use the same cooking time.)

Hello there! Does anyone have a pretty simple yet delicious chocolate cookie recipe? I'd like to make some with chocolate chips and walnuts but any basic chocolate (cocoa added) cookie recipe will do. I've googled but most of what I've found has no reviews or a ton of ingredients (most of which I don't have like coconut oil).

Off of the top of my head, the standard cookie ingredients I have are flour, brown and white sugar, cocoa, chocolate chips, nuts, applesauce, avocados, ener-g egg replacer, flax meal, almond milk, vegetable and canola oils and corn starch.

On another note, I was wondering if I could take my go-to regular chocolate chip recipe and add cocoa or if that would be disastrous!

Thanks so much in advance! :)

Super-easy No-soak Nut Cream

Ingredients:
1 pound nut meal/flour (almond and cashew work well, others undoubtedly do too)
water

Put 3 cups of water in blender. Add nut meal. Stir, then blend briefly just to amalgamate. Add enough water to reach the 6 cup mark on the side of the blender. Blend for 5 minutes. Use immediately or freeze. (I freeze one cup at a time in pint-size Ziploc bags or pint jars.) Straining is optional, and a regular blender works just fine--no need for a Blendtec or Vitamix.

If you want to make smaller quantities, 2 cups meal to 1.5 cups water will get you about 2.5 cups of a nice heavy cream. Add more water if you want to thin it out.

I'm never organized enough to soak nuts for hours before blending them into cream; pre-ground nut meal solves this problem nicely. It can cost a bit more than raw nut pieces ($11/lb vs $9/lb at Nuts.com), but the convenience is frequently worth it.

Nuts.com has really good prices on certified GF nut flours. Shipping for five or ten pounds isn't much more than shipping for one pound, so order in bulk!

We got our new upright freezer delivered today! It is huge (nearly as big as our fridge) and glorious. Our plan is to cook and freeze All The Things. What are your favorite gluten-free recipes for things that can be made in large quantities, frozen in single servings, and then nuked or otherwise heated for lunch or dinner? (Recipes calling for equipment like pressure cookers or food processors are fine; we either have it or can fake it.) What else do you think any sensible person should stock their freezer with?

I'm going to make so much ice cream! And freeze jars of smoothies! And soup and stew and stock! And dumplings! And possibly rejoin Costco, since we can justify the travel expense of a cab each way if we're getting enough stuff to fill the freezer! I will stock up on extra exclamation points and freeze them! Anyway yes, suggestions welcome.

Due to friends, colleagues and a recent trip to the farmer's market, I have a fairly substantial zucchini that I'd like to turn into a casserole or bake of some kind. But I'm kind of directionless. (I blame my insomnia.)

And after a week of eating Mesir Wot, I'm kind of in the mood for something lighter but still satisfying.

In addition to this zucchini, I have plenty of garlic, onions, orange and purple carrots, beets, potatoes, roma tomatoes (maybe 4), broccoli and a healthy bunch of greens.

Protein-wise, I have dried cannellini and romano beans. Also, possibly dried chickpeas. I also have some dried green split peas and lentils. I may have a random can of beans (likely cannellini and/or chickpea).

I have a decent stock of spices, seeds and dried herbs. I also have some fresh basil. And fresh dill that I froze.

For grains, I have couscous, rice (basmati, jasmine and long grain), possibly some quinoa and barley. And polenta.

Other odds and ends: I have nutritional yeast, regular bread crumbs and panko bread crumbs. Maybe some tofu.

And I have lots and lots of olives.

Because of this relentless bout of insomnia, I can't seem to find inspiration in my ingredients. And I really want to make something wonderful, delicious, nutritious and light.

I've been missing the cold beet soup my mom used to make with buttermilk, yogurt, and sour cream. I've tried replicating it with almond milk and apple cider vinegar but while the taste is okay, the rich creamy texture I love and grew up on just isn't there.

I did some looking on google and I know there's soy sour cream and soy yogurt out there but soy breaks me out so I avoid it as best I can. And I read about cashew cheese and cashew sour cream but I mean, the recipe uses like...3 cups of buttermilk, 2 cups of yogurt, and 2 cups of reduced fat sour cream; I can't imagine how many calories that would be if I tried to replace that much yogurt and sour cream with cashew equivalents....

Is there still a way to get that thick creamy texture back in? I'm still pretty new to veganism so apologies if the answer is actually really obvious, I'm still learning about replacement foods and the like. I was wondering if blended up cauliflower would work?

Hello everyone,

We recently found out that my son has a wheat allergy. Anyone have any advice/experience about different flours for baking and cooking? I tried to make pancakes this morning and each of the 3 batches was a failure. I made a flour comprised of brown rice flour, potato starch, and tapioca flour. The third batch I added some xanthan gum which helped tremendously with thickening up the batter. The flavors were just off. I'm feeling a bit lost and overwhelmed so any links or recipes would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Vegan crowd,

It's probably been over a year since I posted on here, but finally I've got a recipe to post that's easy and really worth trying. I came up with it by accident (sort of ;) ). So here it is:

Toodle (Tomato-Noodle) Salad

Ingredients:
 3 1/2 - 4 cups uncooked pasta of your choice (I do like to use spaghetti in this one)
1/2 cup tomatoes, de-seeded and finely diced
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 scant tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp prepared mustard
1/2 tsp rosemary or thyme
1/2 tsp basil
salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.

  2. While pasta is cooking combine all other ingredients.

  3. Drain the pasta, making sure it is still rather warm. Add to the tomato vinaigrette. Mix well and let stand for a short moment to settle. Serve.

Enjoy. :) Ness

Last month I catered my sister in law's wedding. It was quite the challenge since they needed options all the way from Vegan to Steak and just wanted appetizers. Flatbread pizzas were the way to go! It was so fun coming up with different kinds of fancy pizzas. Here is my first installment of my Flatbread Pizzas - a Vegan Roasted Squash and Asparagus Flatbread Pizza. Even if you are a meat-eater, this is sure to satisfy your pizza cravings, while leaving the boring typical toppings behind.

Here is a phenomenal slow-cooker soup that got me through the winter. This is a good soup for omnivores or new vegans. It tastes smoky and substantial without bacon or even the Liquid Smoke flavoring (which sounds awful but is actually relatively harmless; I just couldn't be bothered). In the slow cooker the split peas go to a range of textures. Some dissolve completely and others stay chewy like bacon bits.

SPLIT PEA AND PARSNIP SOUP

This recipe came from a book I got from a friend, Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker by Robin Robertson. Most of the recipes are vegan, as dairy products don't lend themselves well to slow-cooking. Here's another tasty recipe from the same book:

here's a quick super tasty throw-together soup i made this past week. makes appx 6 servings.

small head of cabbage cut into relatively bite-sized pieces
5-6 carrots
small bag of frozen peas (8-10 oz or so?)
4 stalks of celery in bite sized pieces
1 can of chickpeas
28 oz petite diced tomatoes or crushed

throw it all in a pot, add water or stock to just cover (feel free to add a bit of broth powder if you like/have it in the house. i'm a fan of frontier's veg broth powder.)

and here's where my memory gets fuzzy. i know i added moroccan flavors, but i totally forget how much of each i added. so here's my guesses, feel free to adjust to your own preferences.

1-2 tsp black pepper
3-4 dashes of smoked paprika
a few dashes of cardamom
1/2 tsp? maybe more of ras al hanout (it's a moroccan mixture. very nice.)
1-2 tsp harissa (it comes in a squeezy tube.)
maybe 1/2 tsp salt? maybe less.
1/2 tsp onion powder
1-2 tbsp lemon juice

serve with toast. (i always serve soup with toast. it's so tasty. i love it.)

Just wanted to share an awesome recipe going around that is wonderful for folks who really don't have time to mess around with breakfast... Or want a ready-made snack... Or lunch or whatever. You will need:

~Rolled oats (not steel-cut or instant)
~Milk (I used rice, because that's what was open)
~Yogurt (I made cinnamon apple, so I just used unsweetened applesauce, but you could use any flavor yogurt; I've found the Almande brand to be cheapest with the least amount of sugar)
~Sweetener (I used agave nectar)
~Airtight container (Target sells tupperware variety packs in their Up brand for $2!!!)
~Any fruit, small grain (chia seeds, quinoa, etc.), nuts, herbs, or spices that strike your fancy

Put the dry ingredients in first, then the yogurt, then your liquid sweetener, then the milk. You want to put about a quarter as much yogurt as you put oatmeal, then pour milk to cover the oatmeal and just overlap the yogurt. Shake vigorously, and throw in the fridge. Your oatmeal will be all wonderful and delicious and waiting for you when you wake up. I've had mine around for a couple days. It's perfect for just a couple bites for a snack, or breakfast.

If you're using flavored yogurt, you could add ingredients that go along like:

Strawberry yogurt, mash a banana in there
Cherry yogurt, handful of crushed almonds
Blueberry, fresh grated nutmeg, mashed banana, and peanut powder (sounds weird, but it's so delicious)
Coconut, add fresh pineapple OR cocoa powder

I'm going to try a very small amount of something savory... We'll see how that turns out.
