81  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Chocolate chip cookies . . . on: November 23, 2005 10:33:52 PM
Here's my recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Everyone always asks me for the recipe when they try these. They are always surprised to find out they are vegan Smiley  Yum

-2 cups flour
-2 tsps baking powder
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 - 1 tsp cinnamon (depending on how much you like cinnamon, I always add the full tsp)
-1 cup chocolate chips or carob chips
-1 cup sugar
-1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
-1 tsp vanilla
-1/4 cup warm water
-1/4 to 1/2 cup chocolate soy milk (depending on moisture needed)

This recipe works best if all ingredients are at room temperature, with the exception of the soy milk.
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon (if you choose). Add chips. Make a well in the centre and set aside.
3. In a medium sized bowl mix sugar and oil. Mix well. Add vanilla and then the water and 1/4 cup of the soy milk. Mix well.
4. Add the wet to the well in the dry. Mix well but don't overwork. If it needs a little extra moisture you can add a touch more soy milk.
5. Spoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 5 minutes, flip and/or rotate the cookie sheets and bake another 4 minutes. Keep checking them often after this point until they are done.
They are done when they feel slightly softer than you want them to be.

My favourite thing about these cookies is that they stay soft after they cool. Yum.

At home I love to make this kick ass veggie sandwich. Toasted grainy bread, topped with tomato, cucumber, pickles, alfalfa sprouts and topped with this sweet chili sauce we pick up from this little asian market. Yum.

At my favourite little cafe/restaurant they serve one of my favourite sandwiches ever. The Southern Fried Tofu Sandwich. It's basically slices of tofu shake n' baked between good bread with tomatoes, lettuce and vegan mayo. It's so damn good, and would easily give a breaded chicken sandwich a run for it's money.
83  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegan Mac and Cheese on: November 21, 2005 10:46:27 PM
This was the only cheesy food I really missed when I went vegan. I've spent a good long time coming up with a kick ass recipe to satisfy my craving for this yummy comfort food. It's so good, and all the omi's in my life love it too. It's a great potluck dish that everyone can enjoy. *drool*  I just had to share!

*Vegan Mac and Cheese*

•   3 cups dry macaroni
•   1 ½ Tbsp margarine
•   3 Tbsp flour
•   3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
•   2 ½ cups plain soy milk
•   ½ a block of VeganRella “cheddar” cheese, or 4 oz. of your favourite vegan cheese
•   1 clove garlic, minced
•   1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
•   1 Tbsp minced dry parsley
•   1 tsp salt
•   pepper to taste
•   paprika to taste (optional)

Cook pasta until just tender; drain and set aside.

Melt margarine in a saucepan and add onions and garlic. Sautee for one minute. Slowly add the soy milk, constantly whisking the mixture. Add flour and nutritional yeast. Meanwhile, continue whisking. Add cheese, parsley, and salt. Whisk until sauce is thick and smooth.
Combine sauce and pasta, in a lightly greased casserole dish and sprinkle with paprika and pepper. Bake at 375F degrees for 30 minutes. If you like a crusty top you can add breadcrumbs on top before going in the oven.

This post just reminded me of one of my favourite treats a family friend used to make for us when we were kids. It actually originally used Ritz crackers, but saltine crackers work in a pinch. You basically line a cookie sheet with crackers, then you melt some chocolate in a double boiler and coat all the crackers with a layer of chocolate, then freeze them, or refrigerate until hardened. They are so surprisingly good. The salty, sweet and crunchy mixes so well together, and they last forever in the freezer for when you're craving something a little sweet. So good.

I'm all over the "How it all Vegan" and it's sequal "The Garden of Vegan"
Easy, yummy veggie recipes that will impress any omnivore!

Awwww...I'd love a big bad vegan swap!  Smiley
Unfortunately I've lurked around here too long without actually becoming a registered user until...well...yesterday.
So I've got some waiting to do before I can join a swap.
Next time!!

I live in Winnipeg.  Smiley
I enjoy the art/cultural community here.
It's much more thriving than the small city in Ontario from which I originally hail.
