The last weeks I haven’t developed many recipes. For lunch and dinner, I tried recipes from my cookbooks and other food blogs instead. And, like so many times before, I realized that I don’t make many recipes from other blogs. I often save a recipe because it looks fantastic, and I have the best intention to try it, but then I forget about it again. I even have an application on my computer to save and sort them all.
I thought I would change this for Vegan MoFo, the Vegan Month of Food. Since Vegan MoFo is not only about vegan food, but also about vegan community, I want to dedicate November to other bloggers’ vegan recipes. I am going to try out a new recipe every day and review it here on the blog. I also got some suggestions from you after I wrote my last post. I’ll try to make some posts about these as well.
In my last post I mentioned steak shaped TVP, which I used as part of the flammkuchen topping. Here is a picture of the soaked and sliced steak:
I made another batch of “bacon” topping, cooked some pasta, and mixed it with the topping, some olive oil, and fresh parsley. It’s a really delicious and filling pasta dish!
Here is a close up shot:
You could also add one or two tablespoons of the smoky walnut spread, also part of the flammkuchen recipe.
I also made some cookies for a friend in Denmark. The Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar are my favourite cookies from that book. So far I have made them three times. The recipe makes a huge batch and I usually share them with my co-workers who also love them.
The recipe calls for rolling the cookies in salted peanuts, but I usually just knead them into the batter. These cookies are a wonderful snack and I can already eat them for breakfast.
There are some great cookie recipes in Celine’s and Joni’s 500 Vegan Recipes. First I made a batch of Butterscotch Pecan Cookies, but I made them with walnuts instead of the pecans and I added the optional chocolate chips. They came out very crispy at the edges and chewy in the centre:
The last batch were the Lemon Lavender Cookies, also from 500 Vegan Recipes. There texture is awesome, I love it because it reminds me of many German cookies. They are not chewy or crispy but crumbly and a bit dry, but in a very good way.
