yogurt/sourcream sauce?

when i lived in sweden and still ate meat (5+ years ago) we used to buy this pizza. it had kebab meat (not really sure if this is the right word in english, the kind they shave off a vertical grill type thing, really gross actually, i could never eat it if i saw them make the pizza) and a white sauce on top. the meat i think i can imitate using seitan, but the sauce? i don't remember exactly, but i think it would've been made with either sour cream or yogurt, and had a lot of garlic in it. does anyone have a vegan recipe that sounds anything like it? i've been craving this for years, and it would totally make my day (or my year!) if i was able to make this!

Chili Macaroni Bake

Just writing to inform you that Erica's Chili Macaroni Bake is seriously very tasty and easy to make.

For my chili, I used a scoop of the vegetarian chili mix from the Bulk Barn (it's basically a seasoned TVP), and added a bit of water, a can of corn, a drained & rinsed can of mixed beans, and a jar of home-made chunky tomato sauce (which has carrots, celery, mushrooms, and other lovely things in it).

I made the sauce pretty much according to the recipe, but added a pinch of nutmeg. I couldn't help it, it's the Welsh in me ;)

So yes. If you haven't checked that recipe out yet, what are you waiting for? Get to it!

healthier vegan food (and sweets!!)?

lately i havent exactly been eating very healthy stuff...more like junk food all the time (one part of me gets excited when i see theyve replaced nonvegan ingredients with chemicals and artificial stuff, while the sensible part of me screams not to). im especially horrible when it comes to anything sweet, especially chocolate. i started eating unhealthy food when i decided to gain a few more pounds because i was a little underweight according to the doctor. ive gained some 15 pounds in a little over one month, which is really unusual for me. i dont really care so much about losing it as i care about not gaining anymore weight with fatty foods that are going to clog my arteries.

one of my big problems is eating lunch at school. i have limited access to a microwave at school (its a pain in the ass though), but i do have space in a fridge. i dont want to spend every morning cooking a lot of stuff, so it needs to be fairly easy. the other difficult time for me is when it comes to anything sweet/desserts. besides fruit obviously, is there anything else i can try to eat/cook?

thanks so much for any help!

Hi everyone, I've been here for awhile but this is my first post. ^_^

Okay, so, my problem is that today I got an extreme craving for my two ex-favorite foods since becoming vegan; Orange Chicken and Sesame Chicken.

So, does anyone have any recipes for these?

If you do, I'll love you forever and ever. <33

 

Thank you!

crap!

quick answer:
if i started mixing stuff for a cake then realized
1) the egg replacer i just bought is mysteriously gone
2) we have no vegetable oil

can i do 1/4 cup applesauce per egg and use olive oil instead?

or is this gonna be one funky cake?
