There are vegetarian and vegan varieties of gelatin available, you just have to search for it (and do some research). you can try Agar-Agar or Carrageen. Both are made from seaweed instead of animal. Also, many Kosher gelatin is vegan-friendly, but you need to do a little research by brand, because SOME use fish or beef.

Oh man! I've been totally MIA this week - and it's already Friday. Damn. Well, tomorrow is a new day where I can try to be good again!

I DID make this vegan broccoli soup this weekend, though. It was really, really yummy! Super tasty with seasoned croutons sprinkled on top. I used this recipe, but used veggie broth and cut out the cream all together, never missed it: http://lemonsandanchovies.wordpress.com/2011/06/05/potato-broccoli-soup/

That sounds good Miss Whitney! I wanted to make potato and leek soup this week but forgot to buy leeks, so maybe I will try that one!

Here's another quinoa recipe, peeps!

So I've mostly been eating leftovers this week, but tonight we're having company and I'm totally trying those cauliflower poppers!  Also, if I can find some at the farmer's market, I'm going to get some turnips to make mashed turnips.  I haven't had it since I was a kid.

I have a press and have tried to make tortillas numerous times with varying success, I think getting the dough right is a big learning curve.  It sounds easy when you read the recipe (masa + water/broth and/or lard) but consistency is tough for me.  Either its too sticky or too dry Tongue  I'm hoping practice makes perfect because fresh tortillas are sooo good!

I find that what recipes say compared to reality is often quite different Cheesy  On numerous trips to Mexico I've watched people make tortillas and have come to the conclusion that you probly need to make hundreds a day to have "the touch"  It could be just me though, I have issues with any kind of dough....but will keep trying

There are some fabulous recipes on this thread, I'm itching to bust out the quinoa now Smiley

Quinoa has become my favorite grain ever...Grin  I will have to try the quiches, only I probably will not put ham in mine..maybe shitake mushrooms instead!

I do not use gelatin in my crockpot yogurt...I don't mind it a bit runny, especially in summer...I use it a lot to make fruit smoothies...cheesecloth works really well, and it also gets firmer as it gets "older"...I usually use the old yogurt to start the new yogurt...I think my original yogurt starter is about two or three years old...

edelc--do you like tamales?  It is made with corn flour and they are a lot easier to make than tortillas...I use a corn/bean/rice mix for the inside, but you can use chicken or beef as well...

I definitely am going to get cauliflower this weekend...those poppers look like the perfect snack for my need of crunchy salty snacks!

There's something I used to make on Weight Watchers Core that I can't remember the name of...similar to a corn tortilla but much thicker. You basically mixed cornmeal (not masa flour, but fine or medium corn meal) with a bit of water and maybe salt and put it in your fry pan and cooked it for quite a while on very low heat until it's browned on both sides, flipping occasionally. It was so good to put whatever filling in you wanted.

I have a tortilla press but haven't used it much. I actually got it off of ebay. Next time I make tortillas I am using Alton Brown's recipes and method since I recently watched his tortilla show. I love that man.

that sounds like a johnny cake Mare.  I'll have to see if I can find Alton's tortilla method somewhere. 

And yes edel you should try a tamale, a bit time consuming but really yummy!  I do a green chili chicken for the inside of them.
