I checked the memories and didn't see anything listed so I wanted to know if anyone has any good ideas for vegetable broth/stock. I know the basics e.g., carrots, celery, onions, garlic, oregano, basil, bay leaves, but I'd like something a bit more exotic. I'm open to any suggestions.
I buy Florida Crystals, and usually the larger-grain turbinado because it's cheaper than the finely-granulated kind. It's always a bit of a hassle, though, to have to whip out the blender and grind it so it's fine enough to be incorporated into a baked recipe. I suppose I could just grind a whole lot at once and deal with the powdery mess :P But is there any trick to getting it to mix in well? The few times I've used it without grinding it, all the sugar sinks to the bottom and forms an unwanted (though tasty) crust there.
does anybody know of any good recipes for vegetarian or vegan steaks or pot roasts? i know in someplaces you can buy them, but i am not in an area where veg alternatives are readily available...except for basic stuffs so is there a way to make your own steak or pot roast? or anything that is sort of "traditional"
but there was no mention of anyone using it to make tofu. Does anyone that has the SoyQuick use it to make tofu? What has your experience been? It all sounds pretty good to me on the website, but I'd like to get some opinions before I buy it. Also, I noticed that the tofu press you can buy with the soymilk maker is smaller than the wooden ones you can buy...so I don't know if I would be better off just buying a larger one seperately (the tofu kit is $20 extra, and the larger press can be found for around $30), I suppose then I would be making tofu less often...What do you all think?
EDIT: Also, if anyone knows of any other good soymilk makers with equally positive reviews, let me know!
I found out recently that I'm allergic to yeast, and lots of my favorite breakfast foods suddenly aren't good options any more! Also, I'm starting to gear up to do more biking, so some protein in the morning would be great. A breakfast burrito sounds like the perfect solution to me, except I've got no idea what to put in it! Anyone have favorite ingredients they'd care to share? Bonus points for burritos that freeze well!
i only had like half an hr to make something for lunch tomorrow so i threw a head of broccoli into a large pot and steamed it like 1-2 minutes. drained that then added it back to the pot with some olive oil, morningstar streak strips, soy suace, and sesame seeds. it tasted awesome at this point but i added some garlic and a LITTLE pinch of this hot chili pepper spice i have. andddd it's perfect! tastes low fat, i have enough for lunch and dinner! i had to use my mom's digi since mine is packed up so sorry if it's not the best quality (though it should be with a 7mp)
