I just attempted to cook some french toast and failed miserably. It kept sticking to the pan regardless of what I tried....it might've been the nutritional yeast? Has anyone tried frying something with nutritional yeast in it? Mainly, the french toast recipe out of How It All Vegan?
What is your favorite vegetarian or vegan indian food cookbook? I really love indian food and I want a good cookbook I can make healthy recipes from. I love the indian restaurant down the street but not the grease.
what is the best, easiest, most chocolatey cake recipe that you've come across? i have a ton of recipes, but i'm curious as to which are your favorites, so i know if i'm wasting my time.
I'm new to vegan (but 120% excited about it) I bought How It All Vegan and Garden of Vegan and made some cookies from the books. Long story short: I used carob chips because my health food store did not have vegan chocolate chips. Well the two cookies I made with the carob chips (Maureen's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Chip Bars) taste - and I hate to say it because my family is SO against vegan - awful. BUT I made Mum's Sugar Cookies from Garden of Vegan and they're SOOO yummy. so I'm thinking its the chips? They just give it a funny almost bitter taste? I don't know I can't describe it. I have to cook with them again to make this Peanut Butter Pie I was going to make for x-mas, but I'm afraid to. The only other close place I thought might have vegan chocolate chips is Zagara's, but I'm not even sure about that. I was wondering if anyone had advice of something I could add/put on top of the cookies. Its probably too late to order chocolate chips off-line. *sigh* I just am so sad everything turned out badly. I also already have a grahmn cracker crust for my peanut butter pie and silken tofu, if anyone could reccomend an EASY EASY EASY recipe that they have tried and is edible by even non-vegans standards. I'm going to look in the memories but I'd feel better knowing someone else ate it. thanks for any help.
I was asked to make a greenbean casserole for xmas dinner at my families house I looked in the memories because someone posted about it at thanksgiving. I bought imagine creamy portobello mushroom soup for it but it's pretty thin. Should I add cornstarch to it. I don't want to puree mushrooms to thicken it because I want to leave some whole..so hopefully cornstarch will work.
Well, for desert on Christmas day my Gransmother has planned plum pudding and custard for the family, but was freaking out because I don't eat it. She's fabulous with me being vegan, always accomodating me without any fuss, but the question of desert got her stumped. We looked over our menu and figured out that rice pudding and whatever sauce goes with that would fit well with the rest of our food, plus it gives even the meat-eaters a choice.
Does anyone have any good, reliable recipes for rice pudding and sauce? I've never made it before, and I hardly want it to flop on me on Christmas.
Thanks a lot, merry X-mas!
Has anyone here had to cook meat? i am making ham for my boyfriends family on xmas. how the hell am i going to touch the meat?! lol. i havent touched meat in almost 9 years....any suggestions on how not to get grossed out?
My mom brought home a Sugar Cookie Mix that someone gave her for Christmas and she said I should make them for when our family comes over. I LOVE sweets, so I want to make them vegan. The mix itself is vegan, but it calls for 1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter, 1 egg, and 1 Tbsp of water.
I don't have any vegan margerine, any flax seeds, anything fancy at all. How might I make these taste like normal sugar cookies, but still make them vegan? Would applesauce work as an egg replacement here? Can I use any sort of oil instead of the butter, and at what quantity...I'm at a loss, so if there are any good vegan bakers out there, please help.
