Vegan, Wheat-Free Scones!



These were adapted and veganized from a friend's regular scone recipe. I'd heard others raving about how delicious they were, and I wanted to see what I could do with them. I've never made scones before, and I'm really, really pleased with the results!

Recipe here, if you please...Collapse )

It wasn't until after I'd shipped some out for the vegan cookie swap that I realized they're much better fresh and warm from the oven! So, I hope they were okay upon arrival... =/

q about washing veggies

Hey everyone,

I recently saw a commercial for Fit Wash (or something similar) for vegetables, and I was wondering if y'all ever used it. I got my veggies from a CSA over the summer, but now that it's over I've been feeling a little ick about eating non-organic stuff, especially broccoli and lettuce and peppers, and this stuff seemed like it might be all right -- the commercial even said that it's vegan!

So.... if anyone has info about this stuff or another easy way to get my veggies clean, I'd appreciate it!

Vegan Alfredo!

I honestly wasn't sure this was going to work, but it did, and it tasted amazing!

I made penne pasta with a vegan alfredo sauce, broccoli, and a breaded, broiled cutlet of tofu. :) It was so good, I found it to taste very close to the alfredo I used to make using a ton of butter, heavy cream, and cheese. Many thanks to lj-user krystinacore - the cashews were a brilliant idea! Also, zaftigvegan, I used your recipe without even knowing it (with a few additions) - I made this last night before I read your comment in response to my question, but I didn't measure anything out. Your measurements look about the same as what I used, so those are the ones I'm going to type here for the recipe. :) Thank you! Great minds think alike.
