Has anyone tried a peanut butter, luttuce, and mayo sandwich? At first I thought it sounded odd, but then after I thought about it it sounds good since mayo with lettuce is very tasty and natural peanut butter would probably go good with it. I even found a recipe for it...
I think I may try making mayo instead of buying Veganaise since it's about $4 a jar at the grocery here. I figure I can make a lot more for a lot less.
I also want to make cream cheese, but is there a recipe that makes cream cheese that is as good as Toffuti's? There's is really good, but the only kind I can get around here has hydrogonated oil in it and it is always slightly pricey.
Has anyone had particular luck making french fries in the oven? Every time we make them, they turn out a little different. Nothing spectacular has come of it, so far, so I turn to you, the experts. Thank you.
Ok guys. I've got a quest for you. I'm leaving college for summer break in a week (exactly. :( ) and I just bought VwaV. I want to make my (omni )boyfriend the best dinner he's ever had, to remember me for the next three months. ;) In the past I've made him sesame tofu, chana masala, vegan tacos, cake, etc, and he's loved it. So! This book looks amazing and I don't know where to start. Go team go!
What are some recipes that work especially well when using a standing mixer? I have a hand-held mixer as well, so I am unsure of what recipes work best with the hand-held and which ones necessitate the super strength of the standing.
I think marshmallows will be one of the first recipes that I'll attempt with the standing mixer :)
I just found this site (http://www.barryfarm.com/How_tos/how_many_cups_in_a_pound_of.htm) where you can see how many cups are in a pound of certain foods. For example, I have a recipe that calls for 3lbs. of carrots but I have no scale. The site tells me that each pound of carrots is equivalent to 3 cups of finely shredded carrot.
So today I went to the farmers market and got fresh basil and shittake mushrooms.. mm.. I wanted to incorporate them in a dish and this is what happened: 1/2 teaspoon olive oil (more if you please, my boyfriend prefers it with about 1 T.. different strokes for different folks as they say) handful or so of basil, chopped up 1 clove garlic, crushed 5 shittake mushroom caps, cut up 1 1/2 T soy sauce 1 cup cooked rice
Let olive oil heat up, add the basil and mushrooms, let brown up for about half a minute. Add the garlic and 1 T soy sauce, a little before they're brown enough for your liking. Once they are, add the cooked rice and the 1/2 T of soy sauce, and let cook off. EAT. It's delicious.
