i'm not sure if anyone really noticed, but a few weeks ago the revamp of PETAEats.com, now VegCooking.com, went live. every one on the web staff here, including myself, busted ass trying to make this site awesome. so if you haven't seen it already, you mos def should. i added tons and TONS of recipes to the database so this should help everyone out with their cooking, new to veganism or not, worth a look!

Flax-Molasses-Wholewheat Bread

I've been experimenting with flaxmeal in bread. There were problems with uneven rising and texture before, but I've found the best way to work with the added flaxmeal with my particular bread-machine.

This makes a lovely moist, dense, rich loaf which is great with stews, sandwiches, and toasted with marmalade.

Husband tested, vgnwtch approved.

Recipe substitutions?

I'm trying to make cookies, and the recipe calls for xanthan gum. I don't have any, and I have no desire to make a special trip out to get some. I feel confident using vegan substitutes, but I have no idea how I could substitute xanthan gum. Any suggestions? Here is the recipe Collapse )

chocolate blood

i was looking around online for some blood recipes and came across some pretty good ones. and they're mostly vegan too, so i thought i would share.


The mixture may seem odd, but it tastes pretty good, looks surprisingly like real blood, splatters like real blood, dries like real blood, and had several people asking me if I was really okay after that staged fight....

1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
3 or 4 tablespoon corn syrup
1/2 to 1 teaspoon red food coloring
2 drops yellow or green food coloring (optional)

I cannot believe it took me so dang long to join this community. Dood! A recipe for that greenbeans/onion stuff!! I've always loved it and was sad to give it up. *happy dance*

I'm going to share a recipe of mine. I like it because it's easy and freaking cheap and fast and healthy and tasty. It's hard to find things that are all of those. For a while I was eating this once a week. BTW, it's a bastardized version of a recipe on a box of pasta. Collapse )

Oh gods. Now I'm hungry.

more on that blooood...

So I'm definitely going to be trying that chocolate blood recipe, but I don't want to use corn syrup (don't have any, don't want to buy it when I know I won't use it again). I can substitute brown rice syrup, maple syrup, or agave nectar. Which do you think would be the best substitute?
