Remember the dip made of ranch and sour cream that is/was at every party you go to? Does anyone have a simple vegan version? My baby carrots thank you! :)
I have a bunch of chives left over from a dish I made on the weekend. I want to use them up, what can I do?
This recipe was originally called Creamy Pasta Salad With Artichoke Hearts, but I extracted the artichokes for diced tomatoes and cubed potatoes.
1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise (I added 1/3 of vegan mayo)
2 Tbsp. lemon juice (it doesn't really need it, but feel free to add it if you like)
2 cups cooked pasta (elbow, rotini or small shells) (I used rotini)
4 green onions, chopped
1 6-oz. jar artichoke hearts, drained and sliced (I added 4 spoons of Hunt's diced basil, garlic & oregano tomatoes, and ten cubed potatoes in the bowl instead)
1 1/2 Tbsp. fresh or 1/2 Tbsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. salt
• Stir the mayonnaise and lemon juice into pasta. Add the green onions, artichoke hearts, basil, and salt and mix well.
• If the salad is too dry, add more mayonnaise and/or lemon juice.
I'd personally let the pasta salad cool for a few hours in the fridge. Also, run the pasta in cold water prior to adding the ingredients. I'm sure everyone knows that, but I figured I'd mention that just in case.
After cooling, add salt and paper, and serve with salad, soup, ect.
I checked the memories but maybe I missed this, feel free to point me back if I did.. I have a question on tofu. I've never had much luck with tofu but I've decided I'd like to make a white sauce with it. The problem is that I don't have a food processor OR an available blender. It is labeled Silken Tofu "soft" - is it possible to blend this stuff successfully with just a big spoon? Would applying a little bit of heat help?
-Many thanks in advance, from a cooking newbie
SO I tried looking in the memories, but didn't see anything/didn;t really know where to look. My boyfriend picked up some caper flowers at the food bank yesterday (because he didn't know what they were and decided we should make something with them to find out)..so I have never had them before/know much about them and do not really know what to do with them. any suggestions? thanks!
I suddenly had a craving for rice pudding, unfortuatly the only recipes I can find have rice syrup included. I don't want to go to the store (I've been there once before today)Can I just use sugar? Do you have any alternative recipes?
