I splurged the other week when I was in Tesco, they had the latest edition of Gardeners World in a bargain bag with gardening gloves, six packets of seeds and a year long ‘2 for 1 entry’ card to gardens all over the UK. As we are going to the Eden Project soon and this was included as one of the ‘gardens’ it really did make sense to have this particular splurge. The vegan cheese had melted into the crust, so perhaps I should have done a quick release. His new book, Vegan Mexico, puts a cruelty-free spin on that traditional cuisine. And though basil is a must-have ingredient of classic pesto sauces, there are countless variations on the theme when it comes to vegan pesto recipes.
Some of the pie recipes I have from older cookbooks call for just a few cups of fruit (perhaps from a more frugal – or less gluttonous – era), but I just love a fruit pie that is abundant with fruit. Try cocoa butter, xantham gum, agar agar, arrowroot, locust bean gum, carob, vegetarian gelatine, vegan egg replacer, soya flour, banana, potato flour or chocolate.
Everything looks and sounds very gourmet, but the two recipes I made from the book were super-simple to prepare. They are both so colorful, filled with gorgeous mouthwatering pictures and detailed recipes. Along the lines of keeping it easy and low-key, instead of fussing over some big casserole – I just ran down the street to The Bagelry.
You are welcome to share the material contained in this blog, except for others’ recipes. There’s also vegan Swiss (I used Chao instead), kraut (I used Bubbie’s), a dressing made with ketchup and vegan mayo, avocado, and tomato. Ghormeh Sabzi is usually a meat & beans dish, but it’s easy to veganize and is absolutely delicious.
I used the leftover dough from the apple turnovers video, which had all the sugar, for some duck pot pies, and it was really good, but maybe just a tiny bit sweet. Here are 10 recipes for pesto as well as dishes that incorporate the pleasantly pungent, green flavor of the classic sauce — minus the usual dairy.
