vegan_cookoff DISASTER

So this weeks vegan_cookoff ingredient is apples. Easy enough, right?

Well, I had one sour granny smith apple left, so I figured I'd try something uber fancy. My original idea was crepes stuffed with polenta, soy-sausage, and apple.

I ended up deciding on spinach instead of polenta. Mistake #1.

Mistake #2 was with the crepes themselves. I'm out of oil, so I was going to melt margarine into the batter, but then I was reading the ground flax package, and it said to use flax for oil in a 3 to 1 ratio, so since the crepe recipe called for 2 T oil, I used 6 flax, plus another T for egg replacer.

The crepes turned out like omelettes, which wouldn't be so bad in a completely different recipe.

So my crepe-omelettes, stuffed with spinach and mushroom, and sauteed soy-sausage, garlic, and apple, with creamy pepper sauce turned out really awful.

You may all laugh at me now.
