I'm not sure if anyone has posted about this yet, but just in case... Becks & Posh posted roundups of all the food bloggers that participated in Is My Blog Burning? #19 challenge to create all-vegan dishes. Most (if not all?) of these food bloggers are omnivores, so, they might have some unique recipes to offer. I've read over a few and they sound quite good. I'm not sure how many recipes resulted from this challenge, but it looks to be at least 50.
Thanks so much kourtneyshort for posting this link: http://www.vegsource.com/talk/recipes/messages/87113.html in reply to my question about lemon butter! It turned out great- and its firm like jam or ..well...lemon curd. Great on toast! Here's a pic of my yummo toast with lemon curd (made with lemons from my backyard!) :)
When I was in Richmond a couple weeks ago we all ate at Ipanema(sp?) I had a wonderful, I can not stress how yummy this dish was, vegan caesar salad with blackened tofu.
Anyone have an idea of how I can recreate this yummy recipe? (If not, how do you blacken tofu? fry? grill? in what kind of marinade?) I've found a bunch of caesar dressings but I am looking for someone to recommend one?
Thank you :)
ps. If you visit Richmond, Virginia go to Ipanema and Panda Veg. I have never tasted better food. I can't wait to move there:) (thanks to those who recommended it awhile back)
Has anyone heard of a Nigerian dish called Moyin-Moyin(pronounced my-my)? A friend's co-worker brought some in to share with her. It's basically black-eyed peas that have been mashed up with assorted spices, and then boiled or steamed in a foil packet. It was tres yummy-tasted the way I remember turkey and stuffing! I've found some recipes on-line, but I was just wondering if anyone had one they trusted or any advice on preparation.
Banana Muffins (from vegcooking.com) These moist and delicious muffins will please even the pickiest of eaters.
3 ripe bananas 1/4 cup oil or melted margarine 1 cup sugar 2 cups flour 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. baking soda 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional—see other options listed below) • Mash bananas (overripe ones make the best bread). Add oil/margarine and sugar. Mix well. • Sift the flour, salt, and baking soda together and add to the banana mixture. Mix until the flour is blended (do not beat). Pour into muffin pans or a bread pan and bake at 360°F until a toothpick comes out clean.

Time: 16-18 minutes

I wanted to buy something to replace the sugar, but my mother went to the store and bought all the ingredients for me before I had the chance to tell her about it. Any suggestions for a sweetener for the next time I make these muffins (or anything else for that matter)?
