I've searched the index, and there's really nothing there to help me. I have a bag of carob chips sitting around, where they've been for several months. I just don't like carob that much, but my grrlfriend hates choco and loooooooooves carob (ew :) ) She's been out of town for a week and is coming back tomorrow or the next day, and i thought it would be sweet of me to surprise her by cooking something with the carob chips.
I am recovering from the flu and my boyfriend is still in the midst of it. Because of it the menu for this week got really put on hold and I'm trying to figure out how to use things before they go bad. Does anyone have an idea for a recipe that would use a 10 oz-ish bag of fresh spinach that would be good for a soup or something? It was intended for indian food but that doesn't sound to appetizing for a flu upset stomach.
To make hummus, do you use a food processor or blender? i have a really crappy blender that makes it really hard to make hummus, but instead of getting a new blender, i was thinking about getting a food processor...thoughts? what else do you use a food processor for?
My grandpa is in a nursing home, he has cancer among other things.. (high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol..) He really likes shakes, but he can only have sugar-free ones. I'm going to visit him on Saturday and I'd really like to make him a chocolate or vanilla soy shake that's sugar free. I've found some sugar free soymilk, but I don't know about ice cream.. He certainly doesn't need the milk either, so I think soy would be a great option. Anyone have any ideas?
Tonight's offering for Soup Night was corn chowder, and it turned out great! Not that this is the measure of a good dish, but I seriously think this could sneak past some anti-vegan palates. Sorry, no picture, but ( here's how I made itCollapse )
