Let me preface this with: I am so culinarily depressed!
I was making this really great coconut milk tapioca pudding and it was going really well, and I was pouring it into ramekins when I thought "Oh crud! Need to sweeten it a little!" so I dumped it back in and before I knew what happened, the coconut milk had separated!! It was so gross! I tried reheating it to mix it back together and that didn't do anything, so now I have all these coated fish eye looking things (not swimming in anything) and I am just so bummed out. Does anyone know what went wrong, and what I could do to fix it/what I should do next time?
This is one of those recipes that happens when I have very little food in the house. I was pretty happy with it, tho!
1 c lentils 1 T curry powder 1 T tumeric 2 t cayenne pepper
1/2 onion, sliced in rounds 4 celery stalks, diced 4 cloves garlic, minced 2 T margarine splash of red wine
1 c veggie broth 1 c water handful of fresh cilantro, torn up 1/3 c dried coconut
In a crock pot, mix the lentils with the spices.
In a skillet, heat the margarine and fry the veggies until the onions soften. Add the wine and cook until the liquid reduces, maybe 5 minutes? Dump this in with the lentils and add the rest of the ingredients.
Cook in the crock pot on high for about an hour, then reduce to low for 2 hours more. If the lentils are still crunchy, give them a little more time.
This would be really nice over spiced coconut rice. Maybe with some raisins or currants stirred in?
I'd really like to make these cookies today. I made them once when I was in America when I was able to get liquid lecithin. Now, I'm not able to get it, and I was wondering if anyone knew what I could substitute for it..? Thanks!
The recipe is from the Vegan Chef (veganchef.com).
1/2 cup walnuts 2 t. flax seeds 1/4 cup water 2 cups unbleached flour 1/4 cup arrowroot 1/2 t. cinnamon 1/2 t. salt 1/2 cup Sucanat (or brown sugar from sugar beets) 1/2 cup vegan margarine 2 T. liquid lecithin 1 t. vanilla 1/2 t. almond extract raspberry of strawberry jelly or jam (or other flavor of choice)
Would anyone like to help me out in doctoring a recipe? It is very good as it is, but it needs some tweaking : )
I am looking to put together an amazing fruit and veggie muffin recipe with lots of room for substituting. Here is it as it stands:
3/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup oil
1 1/2 cups pureed fruit (last time I used 1/2 cup applesauce and two large mashed bananas, next time I will throw in some pineapple or some pureed peaches) 2 1/2 cups shredded veggies (summer squash, zucchini, carrots)
still tweaking for the perfect vegan cocoa treat. found this along my journey today.
1 cup vanilla soy milk heated on the stove a couple of shakes of cinnamon and sugar. a drop of vanilla and about 1/8th tsp cocoa powder. stir vigorously so as not to get clumps. as soon as it starts to steam pour it into your cup.
it's a filling snack and works in the situation where the only chocolate you have is cocoa powder. I think i'll make a lot more versions around xmas. cheerio!
I think I've asked this before sorry, but I couldn't find it in memories, and my own isn't quite that sharp. I'm trying to successfully make vegan spiced mead. I understand it's made from honey, but thought I could cook up a vegan version. Anyone have any ideas how I could do that? Any existing recipes that could be substituted for a vegan-friendly mead?
Does anyone have some new recipes that use teriyaki sauce? I bought three bottles at the health food store since they were on clearance for .50 (USD) each, but now I have no clue what to do with it all. I can't find any recipes that are really appealing to me at the moment. Any ideas?
i recently recieved a ton of homegrown hot peppers. they look delicious, but i have no idea how to prepare them. i don't even know where to start, other than that you should probably wear gloves when handling them. does anyone have any recipes, cooking tips, and/or ideas on what to do with hot peppers? or are they called chiles? lord, i'm hopeless.
