I'm thinking of making some sort of pasta with fall veggies, since everyone likes pasta. Butternut squash will probably be involved somehow, since I've been dying to try something like this since I had this excellent spicy squash pasta a few weeks ago. For dessert, I'm making apple cider cupcakes.
However, I'm having difficulty coming up with good sides that aren't incredibly starchy or too overtly vegan to go with this. Any suggestions? Also, if anyone has tips for cooking for a group this size, I'd appreciate them.
The batch I made I added ¼ soy sauce, a few drops of liquid smoke, some pepper and chili spices, garlic powder and onion powder and cup of water.
I actually combined two recipes I found on-line and made some adjustments.
2 T culinary lavender flowers
2 T lemongrass
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1/2 butter (I used earth balance butter sticks)
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs (I used Ener-G and apple sauce)
1 tablespoon soy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
d i r e c t i o n s
Pre-heat oven to 375ºF.
Stir together flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
I milled the lemon grass and lavender to make it smoother.
