Testing Round-Up!

A belated happy and healthy new year to everyone! Thank you all for reading my blog and commenting on my posts the last year. I enjoy all of this very much. Here’s to another year of cooking, eating, baking, and being vegan.

For some months now I’ve been testing recipes for the talented Celine and Joni. Their upcoming book will be full of delicious and innovative recipes, which are easy and fast to prepare, too. Some will let you experience new flavour or ingredient combinations and others will satisfy your comfort food cravings. Here’s a round-up of some of the recipes I’ve been making. All of them were really fantastic:

For breakfast or as a gift: Cookie Crumble Granola

Also for breakfast or as a snack: Sour Thymes (baked apples)

Another breakfast or snack: Jam-filled Soda Rolls

You want muffins? Here they are: Quinoa-Raisin Muffins

Or quickbreads? Apple-Sage Quickbread

Your mind says savoury snack? Curry Couscous Stuffed Mushrooms

Hungry for more? Aubergine, Lentils, and Rice Curry

A very colourful soup instead? Tomato-Quinoa Soup

Stick with the quinoa theme? Mexiquinoa

Want more comfort food or remember your childhood? Potatoes au Gratin

Or something every omni would tell you that this couldn’t be veganized? Soufflè

Omni still says no? Look at that texture, dude:

Celine’s and Joni’s book is not finished yet, but I already have an all time favourite: Mandarin Almond Cardamom Cake

Need I say more?
