From genius chef Miyoko Schinner, author of Artisan Vegan Cheese comes this basic recipe for cream cheese. Ideal for use in cheese cakes or as a sub for anything calling for cream cheese or mascarpone. To make a block cheese, after culturing, line a sieve with cheese cloth and put a weight on top. Allow to drain for 24 hours.
PCRM Food for Life Instructor, Phil Eherenman, from Alaska Vegetarian Society, visited the VNA monthly vegan potluck in April, 2012 and gave us this recipe. One of our members, a teenage girl, makes sure they never run out of it at her house.
Nutritional yeast is a godsend for folks who are vegan or those dairy-intolerant. I think this recipe gives traditional Caesar salad dressings a run for their money. Nutritional yeast is available in bulk in well-stocked grocery stores. I forgot the recipe source!?
Lets face it, Mexican food is sooooooooooo different in different states, sometimes, even within the same state.
I add Chicken Base (from Costco) to my water, instead of Chicken broth. and we just love this with Sunny Select Southwest Roasted Tomato Salsa with Cilantro (medium), however, I think you would love this with your favorite chunky salsa!
DH and I love Sesame Tofyu, but the kids always turn their noses up at the idea. Since I am not a short order cook, I only make one "daily special" for dinner. DS got into the kitchen with me and we modified the recipe. This is what we created.
No baker would make a cake for our wedding once they learned of my husband's food allergies, so I had to do it myself! I made faux bottom layers, and used this recipe for the top layer of the cake. Super moist and delicious with icing! Adapted from The Egg-Free, Milk-Free, Wheat-Free Cookbook. Try Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa for an even more satisfying cake.
These are good for an everyday supper since they're so easily prepared, yet look no further of you want something elegant enough to present at a dinner party. This dish is nice served on a bed of pasta topped with Tomato Sauce.
This recipe is really delicious and couldn't be simpler to make, and only takes a few minutes to cook. The broccoli comes out crisp-tender; the broccoli has a slightly crisp exterior from cooking it at such high heat. This recipe is from Food and Wine.
This is a favorite of my kids who love meat but prefer their tacos this way. Be sure to allow time for the frozen block of tofu to thaw. Freezing and thawing it turns it into a completely different texture. We serve with corn or flour tortillas, refried beans, cheese, lettuce, and plain yogurt pretending to be sour cream. It's not too hot for the kiddos, and Dad jazzes his up with hot sauce...but then he has an asbestos tongue.
This was absolutely delicious! It will make a tofu lover out of you yet (I hope!). I let my tofu sit overnight in the marinade, and then baked it, and I thought it turned out great. As I describe below, be sure to really "press" the excess liquid out of your tofu to ensure that it absorbs the marinade. Don't be afraid to put something really heavy on it to draw out the moisture. Cast iron pan works great! Source: Sunday Moosewood cookbook
For the wild rice, I used my recipe: http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/rice-cooker-wild-rice-426255.
You should make it before starting the recipe so it's ready to use when you need it. You could even do it the day before it you wanted to. Just refrigerate the rice until you're ready to use it.
This is a really tasty dish especially with the wild rice instead of plain rice.
To press the tofu, I put it under a tin foil coated brick for 20 minutes on one side and 15 on the other. It is good to get the liquid out if you don't want to add moisture to the recipe.
Note: I didn't add the cooking time for the rice to this recipe.
I found this recipe in Organic Gardening magazine when my children were babies. It truly does make absolutely perfect brown rice every time! Never gummy. You can easily substitute it in recipes calling for rice without your family noticing (well, unless they dissect everything with a magnifying glass like my son likes to do)!
*Please note: THIS IS JUST A RECIPE FOR BASIC RICE! It will NOT be fabulous alone! Use it for any recipe calling for cooked rice/ or spiff it up with the addition of garlic, onion, herbs, broth sub for water, etc. etc.
It WILL be bland if served as is!
I have been making this recipe for years, it is *the best* manicotti recipe hands down! --- I have made this many times for dinner parties and have made it for socials and large gatherings increasing amounts of coarse, I have even served this at my Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday table as an extra dish along with a turkey or ham --- to save time I always mix up the filling a day ahead and refrigerate this will also give the flavors a chance to blend together, or you may prepare up to step #9 cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours --- don't forget to cook the spinach first before using for this recipe
I got this recipe off the Vegan Yum Yum website and am posting it here to make it printer-friendly. The peanut sauce is so easy and delicious, and this was a big hit with my grandma. She is seriously spicy-phobic, but she said she would enjoy this even more with some hot sauce. Instead of peanut oil I used cold-pressed (not toasted) sesame oil, which is also high-heat resistant. I had no problems with that.
