When you’re vegan, the creamy texture is always a challenge. Luckily, there are secret ingredients hiding in plain sight that will make this a whole lot easier. 🙂 Let’s get started!
First, we’ll need a blender. Then,
- 1 package tofu (about 1 pound)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2+ tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1/4+ teaspoon garlic powder
- sea salt to taste
Just 3 steps:
- Blenderize all ingredients!
- Taste, and adjust seasonings as needed.
Just like real sour cream, this is great in sauces and burritos, as well as desserts and baked goods. 🙂
This is such an easy recipe, it’s a perfect side dish for holidays or just a big family meal.
What you will need:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
The easiest, least messy way I have found to do this is to put the crackers in a plastic bag and roll with a rolling pin. A Quart size bag will hold most of the crackers. I split mine and did it 1/2 a sleeve at a time.
I use a big bowl but you can combine in the baking dish.
Bake, uncovered for 1 hour.
Do you like spice? Would you like spice more if spice was salad? Today is your day person with oddly specific tastes.
Serves 2-4, double recipe for 4+ people
2 chopped fresh Cucumbers (duh)
Your preferred salad dressing
Add a 2 oz amount of a vinegar based hot sauce that has a nutty flavor, I recommend Louisianan gold if you can procure a bottle, but most value brands will work.
2 Cups of Baby spinach
Add a teaspoon of pepper if you use a very runny salad dressing.
— Cooking Utensils!
Large mixing bowl to mix cucumbers and spinach and iceburg
Knife to chop Cucumbers
Salad spoons if you have them (a wooden spoon will work)
Chop the Cucumber’s in half (length-wise!!!) then cut into inch thick slices
Add spinach and iceburg to the mixing bowl
Stir in Cucumbers
Add the hot sauce
Add in salad dressing
I just love these little things! Serves 6, ready in just over half an hour. These are called popovers because they ‘pop up’ over the custard cups.
This is taken directly from a 1982 cookbook called Stir Ups written in southern dialect.
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Place all ingredients in mixing bowl.
- Stir with spoon until dry ingredients are moist. Disregard lumps.
- Pour into six cold, greased custard cups, half full.
- Place in cold oven.
- Set oven for 450 degrees, timer for 30 minutes. Don’t peek.
- When bell rings, serve glorious popovers to startled guests.
That’s easy enough, but I like to use instead:
- 1 cup soymilk
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
- 2 eggs (or egg substitute)
And in case you aren’t familiar with custard cups, they’re these little glass things:
Important note – not all glass is oven safe! Make sure yours are. Pyrex is.
If you don’t have individual cups or just don’t want to deal with the fuss, you can also use a greased muffin tin.
Enjoy! These are best served warm from the oven.
These cookies take about a minute each to cook (you’ll be using a waffle iron) and they have to be refrigerated overnight. That might sound like a long time to wait, but when you’re done, these cookies à la France will come out deliciously light and fluffy, and the most beautiful golden brown.
This recipe will make about 2 dozen mysteriously vanishing cookies.
- 3 eggs, separated, room temperature
- 1 2/3 cups flour
- 3/4 cups sugar
- 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 cups oil. Melted butter is traditional, but melted coconut oil is a much healthier option.
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Beat yolks until thick and yellow.
- Beat whites until foamy.
- Combine dry ingredients. Mix well.
- Stir in oil, yolks, and vanilla.
- Fold in whites, blend well.
- Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Shape 1-inch balls, and bake in a waffle iron a few at a time until golden brown – about 1 minute.
Great pictures! This sounds delicious. Can’t wait to try it! (:
