Mod Post: Views On Abortion Are Off-Topic

princess_cj's innocent question of where to get vegan chocolate chips devolved rapidly into a slanging match about abortion. Regardless of princess_cj's icon, abortion is not an appropriate topic for vegancooking. If you are in doubt as to what is on-topic for this community, please read the community guidelines, which were formulated in consultation with the members of this community. This is a community for the discussion of vegan cooking. Abortion is a deeply controversial subject about which many people are deeply passionate. Please discuss it and somewhere else and do not hijack threads in this community, no matter how deeply you feel about it.

[EDIT]: It would be much appreciated if posters refrain from using abortion-related icons (either pro or anti) when posting in this community. Please, no matter what the perceived provocation, remember to be civil. Thanks.

On an entirely personal note, I am deeply disappointed in those who simply piled into an argument and attack. No matter what the icon, you have the choice of whether or not to respect this community and stay on-topic. Those of you who did just that, bless your hearts.

pasta fagiole

i got this recipe from fatfreevegan.com (an AWESOME website, i've found really great stuff there) and tweaked it a bit.
i didn't know how it would turn out, because i've had some bad luck with my pasta/bean dishes, but i thought it was really delicious! it reminded me of the days eating chef boyardee and spaghettios... mmm...
original recipe and my added changesCollapse )
if you wanted to add some faux meat or something like that, i'm sure you could. one of my friends doesn't like the taste of fake meat so i kept away from that for her sake. enjoy!

I really shouldn't be eating bread but I wanted to try my idea to bake kumquats into soda bread, instead of raisins. I did it, and it is really fantastic. It is like bread with excellent marmelade already in it.

2 cups unbleached white flour
1 cup soy flour
2/3 cups oatmeal
1/3 cup flax
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp caraway seeds

stir

I had about a cup and a quarter of halved kumquats. I had to halve them to get the seeds out.

put them in with the dry ingredients and mix before you put in the wet ingredients.

1 + 1/2 cups soy milk. as with Kreeli's delicious soda bread, knead until a smooth,
pliable dough forms. lightly oil a cookie sheet or pizza pan. shape the
dough into a round loaf about 3 or 4 inches high on the pan. bake at 375
for 35-40 minutes. cool on a rack.

This is unfortunately not resistable at all.

french onion cream cheese

okay, so i accidently bought french onion tofutti cream cheese at a health food store near my work.
as the trader joes i go to only has the plain, i didnt realize that all of the containers look the same from the side (i am short and it was on a highup shelf).
any good recipes that could use this?
i enjoy french onion dip, but not cream cheese.

otherwise i may end up just throwing it out.
help?

Boston creme!

Gah! My mom just bought home my favorite doughnuts...boston creme. Which made me want Boston Creme Pie. I used to love that. The pie and the doughnuts used to be my favorites.

Anyone got good Boston Creme Pie recipes?

Oh, and has anyone tried that "tofu 2 go" dessert stuff? Is it any good?

Okara Recipes?

Forgive me if this has been brought up before, but I'm looking for tried and true recipes for soy pulp (AKA 'okara'). To save money, I plan to start regularly making my family's soymilk with bulk-purchased soybeans, and know I will have lots of leftover soy pulp to deal with. Any suggestions?

I just bought a box of Stevia and read the back after opening it:

"Two French chemists named Bridel and Lavieille began to unravel the secret of Stevia in 1931.....they found this substance to be 100-300 times sweeter than table sugar and without toxic effects in laboratory animals."

Wait...laboratory animals?

I've only heard about this product from vegans...

Is this unnacceptable to consume?
I'm so confused.
