-1 teaspoon of ginger (powdered or fresh chopped)
-1/2 cup of olive oil

Add in the preserves and remaining olive oil and stir. Add the chicken and stir often until the chicken is 'white' on all sides. Cover and simmer for about 15-20 minutes.

*You can add frozen peas and carrots to this recipe or if you omit the chicken, add cubed tofu.

Vegan Pasta Dough
(Serves about 4)
--
1 scant pound unbleached all purpose flour
2 rounded tbsp soya flour (any organic/health food store)
3 tbs olive oil
about a cup of water
extra flour for dusting
--
Mix the flours well in a large mixing bowl with a wire whisk or fork.
Turn the flour out onto a large cutting board or clean countertop, and form into a little mountain with a caved in top (think volcano).
Add the 3 tbsp olive oil into the top of the 'volcano', and add a couple tbsp of water. Mix with a fork, adding water a tbsp at a time, until the dough becomes too stiff to use a fork anymore.
Knead dough by hand for at least 10 minutes, until completely smooth. Kneading is the secret here, not adding too much water. Knead, knead, knead until your hands hurt, and then knead a little longer. :lol
Place the dough in a bowl, cover in plastic wrap, and chill in the fridge for about an hour.
To roll the dough, seperate it into two pieces, and roll each on a floured surface, with a lightly floured rolling pin until quite thin.
Try using a pizza wheel to cut the pasta instead of a knife (seems to stick less). Cook as directed by recipe, or if just using the pasta as-is, drop in boiling salted water for 5-15 seconds, until al dente. FRESH PASTA COOKS VERY VERY QUICKLY!!
Add you favorite sauce and enjoy!

Vegetable Bouillon

1 celery stalk, chopped
1/2 fennel bulb
1 garlic clove
1 bay leaf
4-6 fresh sprigs parsley and tarragon
8 cups water
pepper
--
Put all ingredients in a large pan and bring to a boil.
Skim off the surface scum with a flat spoon and reduce to a gentle simmer. Partially cover and cook for 45 minutes. Let cool.
Line a sieve with clean cheesecloth, and put it over a large pitcher or bowl. Slowly pour the bouillon through the sieve. Discard the herbs and veggies.
Cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator or freezer until ready to use. Will stay fresh in the refrigerator 3 days, or up to 3 months in the freezer.

white Gravy/Country Gravy/The Yum

ingredients
Milk (Any %)
Flour
Salt
Pepper
1-2 Tablespoons of grease (I usually cook a batch of sausage up, then drain almost all of the grease out of the skillet.
It's just used for flavor, so don't worry about needing a lot.)
Skillet
Wire Wisk


method
Fill the skillet about halfway with milk and let the milk warm up. It doesn't have to boil. Then, take a cup of flour and sprinkle some on the top. Wisk it around until it's completely mixed and then repeat. Be careful not to let it lump up. This will require constant attention. You'll want to continue to do this until it's the consistency of thick chowder. Add salt and pepper to taste as you go. I like mine a little bit spicy so I put a LOT more pepper than salt. Don't worry if it's too thick. Just add more milk and wisk it until it's right. Too thin? Add more flour. I warn you, it might take a few tries to get it right, so be patient.
