Summer foods!

Hello everyone!

Its finally starting to feel like spring/summer up here, and I just can't bring myself to fire up the oven or even use the stove because its so hot out. So, I was wondering what some of your favourite cook-less vegan recipes for dinner-like meals are. Cold soups and such are great suggestions. The more creative the better, I'm feeling adventurous!

Thanks!

Earl Grey Cupcakes!!!



So amazingly good. Perfect for high tea. Very decadent.

Sift:
2/3 c. sugar (can add a little more if wanted)
2 c. flour (I used cake but original recipe called for all-purpose)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cornstarch
2 tbsp. (or more - I used 4 tbsp) ground Earl Grey tea

Whisk:
3/4 c. Tofutti better than sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
8 oz. Earth Balance
1-2 tbsp. water if needed

Whisk wet and dry ingredients together...it's ok if it's a little lumpy. Bake in muffin cups at 400F for 18-20 minutes.
