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!
boom de yada

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?
