2  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Plastic Bag Ice Cream with soymilk? on: July 01, 2008 09:27:17 AM
Can you just put soymilk in place of milk in plastic bag ice cream? Grin
3  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegan Coconut-Banana Amish Friendship Bread on: July 01, 2008 09:10:52 AM
I love to cook vegan (and eat it when I can (I am still just a vegetarian), but I was given this amish bread starter and I couldn't find a vegan verson... so I worked on it... read at my blog my adventure http://sunnydoodle.wordpress.com/
But here is the recipe I got:

I still used the milk-eating starter, but this Amish Bread starter (http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Amish-Friendship-Bread-Starter/Detail.aspx) can be made vegan. There is still work to be done on this recipe. So if you test it out or change it please tell me. I would LOVE to know

1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1 cup all-purpose flour, divided
1 cup white sugar, divided
1 cup plain/ vanilla soymilk (vanilla)
In a Gallon Plastic Baggy, dissolve yeast in water. Let stand 10 minutes. Combine 1-cup flour and 1-cup sugar. Mix thoroughly or flour will lump when soymilk is added. Slowly stir in 1-cup milk and dissolved yeast mixture. Cover loosely and let stand until bubbly. Consider this day 1 of the 10-day cycle. Leave loosely covered at room temperature.

Now follow the Amish Friendship bread 10-day step, but using soymilk.  I just feed my starter every once in a while, like once a week, and bake about every 2 weeks.


Vegan Coconut-Banana Friendly to All Bread
1 large box  or 2 small boxes of Coconut Cream intent pudding mix (Vegan)
2 cups of flour
tsp baking soda
tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
Just under 1 cup of sugar
Egg Replacement for 3 eggs. I used 3 Tbsp of cornstarch.
Optional: add a little over or more of coconut flecks
cup of coconut milk (or soymilk will work)
1 ripe banana mashed
tsp of vanilla
3 Tbsp.-1/4cup of water

Preheat oven at 350.

Mix dry. Then mix in wet. Add water to make the dough moveable, mixable, and stays togerher. It is a chunky mixture, not smooth.

Spray no stick in a loaf pan (I used one). Coat the pan with sugar. Put it in the loaf pan.

Put in the oven for an hour (, but watch it) or until a toothpick comes out kind of clean.
Let it cool in the pan for a minute or two, then as gently as you can turn out the bread and flip it up right, OR let it sit in the pan for a longer time because
mine caved in.

The bread is very moist inside, almost pudding-y.  It is a change to the everyday banana bread. Personally, I taste the banana more but the hint of the coconut that lingers will make people ask.
There is still work to be done. So, if you test it out or change it please tell me. I would LOVE to know!
If you just want coconut bread then forget the banana and ad 3/4 cup oil or some apple sauce!

Friendship comes with cost and if that means waking up in the middle of the night to find her scared of the rain about to come (big or small) is all the cost then I can pay it. In addition, it is always a good feeling when I can comfort her though the big storms.

Thanks to Rainy for modeling for me by the purple flowers. Cheesy

*Body and Trunk crocheted with leftover gray wool yarn.
            Ears and legs made with fleece (gray).

            Eyes and inside of ears made with felt (pink, black, white, and blue).

*Truck made with Vogue Knit1. pattern. The body based apon the principles of the pattern.

Comments are loved  Cheesy

I am happy to post my first crocheted project. I am very happy how he turned out!

"This is the most embarrassing. I was in my parents room. I set down to read when I saw some blue flowers. I was proud to immediately realized that the flowers where not real. I looked down to my book again, but from the top of my book, I spied with my little eyes something yellow."

More pics and a more of the STORY at my blog!

8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Vegger the Vegetarian Tiger on: January 27, 2008 07:19:06 AM
Vegger is a Vegetarian tiger. He may not look like it. He was made felt, sewing machine and some hands.
I kind of made him free handed. I cut him out and then did everything by eye. There were troubles, but that is what is expected on your 1st time, right?Huh!! Grin
His story about why he is a vegetarian is on my blog- http://sunnydoodle.wordpress.com/
What do you think? Huh
