mushroom onion risotto

so i sorta invented this recipe last night and my (omni) parents cleaned out the pot in about five minutes, even though the amount of rice i used is supposed to serve 6 and there were 3 of us...

risotto for everyone!Collapse )

my instructions are way too detailed, but actually it's quite easy to make, though it does take a bit of time. but it's rewarding, because everyone will love it.

Vegan Banoffee Pie / Dulce de Leche?

So, my boyfriend and I went to Scotland earlier this year, and we both fell in love with it.  He, who is of Scottish heritage, loves the food.  His birthday is this weekend, and I plan on making traditional British food all day.  One thing that he really wanted to try was banoffee pie. 

For anyone that doesn't know, banoffee pie includes a crumbled cookie crust, toffee, bananas, and whipped cream.
Usually the toffee is made by boiling cans of sweetened condensed milk, or just from a jar of packaged toffee or dulce de leche.

Here's the catch:  I am extremely lactose intolerant, and eat about 98% vegan (fish or eggs on rare occasion when I'm stuck for protein).   I found some soy whip to replace the whipped cream, but I'm not sure I can find/make a non-dairy version of the toffee/dulce de leche layer.

If I'm really stuck, I'll just prepare it with the dairy ingredients and skip out on sharing it, though I would prefer not to.

So,  I would be extremely grateful for any suggestions!

Thank you!!
