soft-yet-firm caramely sauce?

Hi everyone - I'm a long-time lurker, but this is my first post. My boyfriend's birthday is coming up, and I want to make him a spectacular cake. Vegan, of course. He wants chocolate with chocolate frosting, which I can do no problem, but I want to put something other than just more frosting between the layers. I was thinking maybe a caramel-type substance, but I'm not exactly sure how to make one that's firm enough that it won't leak out all over the place but also soft enough to cut and eat without breaking your teeth. Any ideas?

ETA: I don't have a candy thermometer, so this may not fly. In that case, any ideas about what I could schmear between the cake layers that would be extra-delicious?

salisbury steak

My omni boyfriend would like to try a vegan salisbury steak. Does anyone have a recipe for that? I never ate salisbury steak before I was vegan, so I'm not exactly sure what it's supposed to taste like. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

diabetic friendly vegan meals

i was wondering if anyone knew of a good vegan dish that was also diabetic friendly (ie. low carb low fat)? my step dad (an omni) was recently diagnosed with it and had to cut out a lot of meat from his diet. he's also added fake cheeze to his meals and i wanted to make him something that we could both enjoy together. maybe a recipe involving fake cheeze?

so if anyone can help me out on this one, it'd be really great. thanks!

Vegan Meatloaf.

Hey all, I am new here.

I am curious if anyone has come across a very tasty and vegan recipe for this
usually meat-heavy dish.

I finally cracked open my vegan planet book and have found some tasty chipolte mashed potatoes
i would like to make, and for some reason, vegan meatloaf keeps popping into mind.

help :)

thanks again for the wonderful community!!!

(no subject)

I have a loaf of ciabatta that has went incredibly stale. I'd feel sad to just throw it out, seeing as half of the loaf is left. Does anyone have any good ideas for what to do/make with it? I have absolutely no clue, so any suggestions would be excellent! Thank you.

homemade egg replacer

It happens when you least expect it. Whipping up something nice, go to grab your box of Ener-G Egg Replacer, and it happens.. You have used it all!!! I was making corndogs so I could not be using bananas or applesauce for a substitute, now could I? I frantically did a search on the net and found this:

1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
2 Tbsp Flour
3 Tbsp Water

I really dont know where I found this (I was so distraught- fellow foodies, you understand don't you!?), possibly on a vegweb msg board. I even looked through all the FAQ here to make sure this wasnt already posted.

Now, it makes a lot more than 1 Ener-G egg, so I dont know if this is still used to replace only 1 egg. But it was whipped up with peaks in seconds!

I added it to my corndog mixture..
The results!!!Collapse )


I bet this would be great for big fluffy cookies!!!

Hi everyone!

A breastfeeding mother friend of mine is having some issues with foods and her breastfed baby. She is not allowed to have eggs, dairy or nuts. She is also not fond of squash 'plain boiled' she states.

Could you all post up some of your favourite recipes so I can pass them along to this mama. She's at her wits end and feeling like she can't eat anything. Trying to reason with her that she does have many choices would be silly, when giving her yummy recipes would suit much better.

Many thanks and blessings to all that reply.
