Sweet Potato Chaat (Shakarkandi)

April 23 2021 Manjula's kitchen 

Sweet Potato Chaat (Shakarkandi) (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Sweet Potato Chaat, Shakarkandi .wprm-recipe-rating .wprm-rating-star.wprm-rating-star-full svg * { fill: #343434; } I have been wanting to make a sweet potato chaat (Shakarkandi Chaat) for some time now. It's a savory and flavorful chaat, which also happens to be a very popular Delhi street food. I have tried to make this recipe many times but never quite perfected it! Last weekend I had the honor of being a guest judge for a cooking contest which was conducted virtually over Zoom! The contest was for the best air fryer recipe. The winner of this contest, Rashmi Sabjur, happened to make an eggplant chaat. While she was discussing her creative recipe, I got the idea of making a sweet potato chaat in the air fryer. Many people ask me how I am inspired to come up with new recipes…well the answer is people like Rashmi, and of course you all, my viewers! Traditionally, sweet potatoes are cooked over coal, cut into small pieces, and drizzled with lemon juice and spices to make it delicious and flavorful. This spicy chaat is also had a nice crunch. Try this recipe out soon! A special thank you to Rashmi for inspiring me to perfect sweet potato chaat! This recipe is also vegan. This recipe will serve 6. Course Appetizer Cuisine Indian Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 25 minutes Total Time 35 minutes Servings 6 people EquipmentCuisinart TOA-60 Convection Toaster Oven Airfryer Reynolds Kitchens Pop-Up Parchment Paper Sheets Ingredients1 large sweet potato sliced in thick rounds For Batter1 1/­­2 Tbsp all purpose flour plain flour, maida 1 1/­­2 Tbsp corn starch corn flour or arrowroot powder 1/­­2 tsp salt 1/­­4 tsp black pepper 1/­­3 cup water approx Oil spray For Breadcrumbs 1/­­2 cup bread crumb plain unflavored 1/­­2 salt 1/­­4 black pepper For Garnishing 1/­­4 cup whipped yogurt 2 Tbsp hari cilantro chutney 1/­­4 cup tamarind chutney For Garnishing (optional)lemon juice sprinkle over chaat chaat masala powder green chili finely chopped ginger finely chopped InstructionsUse a large, sweet potato. Wash and peel and slice them in rounds of about 1/­­4 inch thick. Keep aside. In a bowl take breadcrumbs, add 1/­­2 tsp salt and 1/­­4 tsp black pepper, and mix it all well. In another bowl mix all-purpose flour, corn starch, 1/­­2 tsp salt, and 1/­­4 tsp black pepper. Add the water slowly and make it into a thick batter. I used about 1/­­3 cup of water. I am using parchment paper over air fryer baking tray oil the parchment paper. Coat both sides of a sweet potato slice in the flour batter and then in the breadcrumb mixture. Shake off any excess breading and transfer the sweet potato slices to an airfryer baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining sweet potato slices. Spray the slices with oil. Bake in air fryer for 10 minutes (on 325-degree Fahrenheit). Then turn the sweet potato slices and bake it again for 10 minutes. Maybe you will have to adjust the time and temperature according to your air fryer. The sweet potatoes will have a nice crunch. You may serve them hot or at room temperature with your favorite garnishing. I prefer with yogurt and chutney. NotesServing Suggestions Sweet potatoes have nice crunch, my favorite way to serve this chaat, is to drizzle with yogurt, little cilantro chutney and top it with tamarind chutney if you like hot and spicy sprinkle with finely chopped green chilies and ginger. I have done cilantro chutney and tamarind chutney recipes earlier; you can find these recipes on my website.

Radish Salad with Cashew Sour Cream Dressing

April 22 2021 Golubka Kitchen 

Radish Salad with Cashew Sour Cream Dressing Hi friends! Popping in today with this springy radish salad with a cashew sour cream dressing. When I was growing up in Russia, my grandma would make a salad like this all the time during radish season in the spring and early summer. It was super simple – just radishes, cucumbers, and tons of sliced green onion, dressed with sour cream – but it was my absolute favorite. The way that the fatty sour cream counteracts the fresh and sharp flavors of the radishes and green onions is something out of this world. For this vegan variation, I came up with a cashew sour cream dressing, and the resulting salad tasted exactly like the salads of my childhood. I don’t think I would ever be able to tell the difference, if not for the fact that I’m not eating it in my grandma’s cozy kitchen. Hope you’ll give this salad a try, it’s the perfect embodiment of spring! Radish Salad with Cashew Sour Cream Dressing   Print Serves: 4-6 Ingredients ½ cup cashews ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons water 2 tablespoons lemon juice (from about a half of a large lemon) ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar ¼ teaspoon onion powder ¼ teaspoon garlic powder sea salt freshly ground black pepper about 20 radishes (from around 2 batches), trimmed and sliced into half-moons 2 Persian (baby) cucumbers, sliced into half-moons 3 scallions, white and green parts, sliced Instructions Make the cashew sour cream dressing. If not using a high-speed blender, soak the cashews in hot water for 15 minutes, then drain (no need to soak if you have a high-powered blender). In an upright blender, combine the cashews, water, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Blend on high until very smooth. Taste for salt and pepper, and adjust if needed. Transfer the dressing to a jar and chill in the refrigerator while slicing the vegetables. In a large bowl, combine the radishes, cucumbers, and scallions. Add enough of the sour cream dressing to dress the salad to your liking (you might have some leftover dressing). Taste for salt and adjust if needed. Serve the salad right away. 3.5.3226 The post Radish Salad with Cashew Sour Cream Dressing appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

Vegan Pasta e Fagioli

April 22 2021 Vegan Richa 

Vegan Pasta e FagioliVegan Pasta e Fagioli is a hearty, nourishing, and nutritious white bean and pasta soup packed with healthy veggies and plant-based protein! An Italian comfort food classic that is perfect all year round but especially on chilly nights. Serve with garlic bread.  When it comes to Italian soups, most people know minestrone and then maybe Italian wedding soup.  Let me tell you, you are missing out on a goodie! Pasta e Fagioli -which translates to pasta and beans and that sums it up pretty well. Reminds you of minestrone? Well, it’s similar, but there are differences – mostly in texture and some ingredients. What is the difference between Pasta e Fagioli and minestrone? Both Pasta e Fagioli and minestrone are hearty Italian soups made from a tomato base with added beans and pasta. While a classic Italian minestrone soup often has a whole array of colorful veggies added (like green beans or zucchini), Pasta e Fagioli is typically just white beans and pasta. So while minestrone is a bit lighter, Pasta e Fagioli is meant to be very thick! While there are not too many veggies added in the original version, in my recipe, I add some celery and carrots as well to make the broth more flavorful and the soup more colorful! In the traditional version, this Italian white bean soup is often made with pancetta or bacon. To make this a vegan Pasta e Fagioli recipe, we skip those additions and up the umami by adding tomato paste. You can add vegan bacon if you wish. Plenty of Italian herbs take care of the rest! This soup tastes amazing!

Truffled Almond Alfredo With Really Garlicky Broccoli

March 14 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Truffled Almond Alfredo With Really Garlicky Broccoli Serves 4-ish (or two really hungries) Photo By VK Rees This alfredo is deceptively simple, but totally creamy with a hint of nuttiness. The almonds act a little bit different than cashews when blended, because they retain some of their texture reminiscent of hard cheese. Which is, of course, a must for Alfredo. Combined with a lil lemon and nooch, it gets the job done! I love to serve it with really really REALLY garlicky broccoli. The secret to getting it good and garlicky is adding the garlic at the end. That way the garlic doesnt burn but you can take your time getting the broccoli cooked just right. This recipe is originally from Isa Does It. Recipe Notes ~Slivered almonds are great here because the skin is removed, and it makes the sauce a bit smoother, and keeps the sauce looking creamy and pristine. ~Truffle oil gives this pasta an allure that screams Fancy day! Even if its just you on the couch watching Bridgerton for the third time. Or is it the fourth? Its a fun ingredient to have around, and, although its a little pricey, it aint nothing compared to the cost of an actual truffle. ~It will take about 1 1/­­2 pounds of broccoli to make 6 cups. That means it should weigh 1 1/­­2 pounds when you pick it up from the store and once youve butchered it and discarded the rough ends, it will equal about 6 cups. Ingredients For the Alfredo: 1/­­2 lb linguine 1 cup slivered almonds 1 1/­­4 cups vegetable broth 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 1/­­2 teaspoon salt 1/­­4 cup nutritional yeast 2 tablespoons black truffle oil Fresh black pepper to taste 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley For the Broccoli: 6 cups broccoli florets and thinly sliced stems 1 tablespoon plus one teasoon olive oil, divided Big pinch salt 6 cloves garlic, minced Directions Boil a pot of salted water for your pasta. Prepare the pasta according to package directions. In the meantime, place all sauce ingredients in a blender. Blend until relatively smooth. I usually blend for about 5 minutes, giving the blender a break every minute or so so that the motor doesnt overheat. If you have a high speed blender it will be faster. Make the broccoli: Preheat a large heavy bottomed pan over medium heat. Saute the broccoli in one tablespoon of olive oil and a pinch of salt for about 5 to 7 minutes, tossing often, until it is a bright green. Add a few splashes of water if it seems dry.  Now push the broccoli to one side of the pan, and add the garlic. Immediately drizzle the one teaspoon of olive oil over the garlic and toss to coat, then integrate the garlic with the broccoli and cook for another minute.  Assemble: Drain the pasta and add it immediately back to the pot you boiled it in. Add the sauce and parsley and toss to coat. Taste for salt and seasoning. Serve with broccoli!

Basil Pesto Sauce

March 9 2021 Manjula's kitchen 

Basil Pesto Sauce (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Basil Pesto Sauce .wprm-recipe-rating .wprm-rating-star.wprm-rating-star-full svg * { fill: #343434; } Lately pesto has become one of my favorite condiments to keep. Basil Pesto is an Italian delicacy. It is super easy to make, and you can use it in so many ways, making variations of dishes. My grandkids enjoy pesto pasta, my son's favorite is making pesto sandwiches, and I like salad and roasted vegetables with pesto. Pesto has a vibrant color and brightens up any dish you make. Basil is a very aromatic herb. I have basil plants in my backyard. Because basil is the main ingredient for this recipe, I am always prepared. This is also vegan and gluten free recipe. This recipe will make about 8 oz of Pesto. Course Chutney Cuisine Italian Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 0 minutes Total Time 10 minutes Servings 8 oz Ingredients 1/­­2 cup toasted pine nuts 2 cup fresh basil leaves 1/­­2 cup spinach 1 tsp lemon juice 1/­­2 tsp salt 1/­­4 tsp fresh black pepper 1/­­4 cup olive oil InstructionsIn a food processor, pulse the basil, spinach, pine nuts, black pepper, lemon juice, and salt. Blend until the mixture is well blended but still has some texture, pausing to scrape down the sides, as necessary. Now add the olive oil in the food processor and pulse for a few seconds, scrape the sides, and pulse it again. I like to use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides. Pesto is now ready. Adjust the ingredients to your taste. NotesNotes: I usually will make pesto in a larger quantity for later use. Freeze the pesto in an ice cube tray and make sure a few hours later to transfer the frozen cubes of pesto out and place in freezer zip lock baggies. Serving Suggestions: Toss with pasta as a sauce, over baked potatoes or grilled vegetables, toss it with salad, or spread it onto crackers or toasted slices of bread.

Vegan Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins

March 3 2021 Golubka Kitchen 

Vegan Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins The idea for these muffins came from a smoothie shop I used to frequent back in NYC. They sold some baked goods in addition to smoothies, including peanut butter and jelly muffins. I remember wanting to recreate that muffin flavor at home as soon as I saw them, and this was years ago. I finally got around to it! These muffins are made with spelt flour and are filled with a layer of peanut butter and chia jam in the middle, as well as topped with a swirl of both. The recipe has you make extra chia jam, so that you can top the muffins with more of it, which is my favorite way to enjoy them. Hope you’ll give these a try! Vegan Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins   Print Serves: 12 muffins Ingredients for the chia jam 10 oz/­­2 heaping cups frozen or fresh raspberries, or other berries of choice 2 tablespoons maple syrup juice from half a lemon 2 tablespoons chia seeds for the muffins 2 cups spelt flour 2½ teaspoons baking powder sea salt ½ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut sugar 1 cup dairy-free milk ⅓ cup refined coconut oil 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ¼ cup chia jam, plus more for topping ¼ cup creamy peanut butter Instructions to make the chia jam Put the berries in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and let simmer and thaw out, if frozen, for 5-10 minutes, until broken down in parts and jammy. Turn off the heat and add the maple syrup, lemon juice, and chia seeds, mix well. Let cool, transfer to an airtight container, and keep refrigerated. This recipe makes extra chia jam, enjoy it on top of the muffins. to make the muffins Preheat the oven to 350° F (175° C). Prepare a 12 hole muffin tin by filling it with muffin liners (see note). In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt, mix until smooth. In a medium bowl, combine the sugar, milk, oil, and vanilla extract, mix well. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix to just combine. Take care not to over mix, to keep the muffins fluffy. Fill the muffin holes about halfway with the batter. Use a wet spoon to make small indentations in the middle of the batter for the peanut butter and jelly (see photo). Add about ½ teaspoon of each the chia jam and peanut butter into the indentations. Cover the peanut butter and jelly layer with the rest of the batter, smoothing it out with a wet spoon. Some of the jam and peanut butter might squeeze out the sides, which is ok. Top each muffin with another ½ teaspoon of each the chia jam and peanut butter. Use a toothpick or a knife to swirl the two together. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the muffins comes out clean. Let the muffins cool for 15 minutes, remove from the tin and enjoy, topped with more of the chia jam. Notes I recommend using muffin liners, since any of the jam that comes in contact with the walls of the muffin tin might burn or caramelize a bit. If you are like me and dont mind that, feel free to skip the muffin liners. Just make sure to oil the muffin tin thoroughly. 3.5.3226 The post Vegan Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

My focus for these donuts is on taste, not tradition. I mean, what’s not to love about the combination of tart raspberry jam, chocolate, and coconut. Imagine a fresh, fluffy, perfectly cooked doughnut hole, filled with still warm raspberry jam and dipped in a rich vegan chocolate glaze, then tossed in shredded coconut. Trsut me, these are seriously good. I give you two options here! I know that not everyone has a donut baking tray, so you will be happy to lear that a mini muffin tray or a mini bundt cake tin can be used instead. Maybe even a cake pop tin.

Apple Peanut Butter Caramel Bars

February 6 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Apple Peanut Butter Caramel Bars Makes 12 bars Photo By Kate Lewis February is baking season and where I am, nothing is in season, so anything goes! But, I ask you: is there a better treat than sliced apples spread with peanut butter?  Not really. But what if you wanted to turn that into a dessert that took much longer? JK. These bars fulfill all your apple peanut butter cravings and then some. An apple pie filling inside a graham cracker crust, with a crumb topping and ribbons of luscious peanut butter caramel. The peanut butter caramel is the nicest trick. Not technically caramel, its just  few ingredients lightly heated that come out all thick and sweet like caramel, but with no chance to mess it up. This recipe is from Veganomicon. I will be posting some Veganomicon recipes over the next week, but you can totally buy a copy, too. No one is stopping you! Recipe Notes ~To make cookie crumbs, just blitz the cookies in a food processor until fine. You can actually use different types of wafery cookies here. Vanilla or speculoos or even peanut butter would be nice! ~For a sweet and salty combo, sprinkle some flake sea salt, like Maldon, over the caramel before it sets. 1/­­4 teaspoon should do it. Ingredients For the Crust: 3 cups graham cracker crumbs 1/­­3 cup refined coconut oil 3 tablespoons unsweetened vegan milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract For the Crumb Topping: 1/­­2 cup all-purpose flour 3 tablespoons sugar 1/­­4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/­­4 teaspoon ground ginger 1/­­4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/­­4 teaspoon salt 3 tablespoons refined coconut oil, melted For the Apple filling: 3 pounds Granny Smith apples (about 6), cored and sliced thinly (peeling is optional) 1/­­3 cup sugar 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1/­­4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/­­4 teaspoon ground ginger Peanut Butter Caramel: 2/­­3 cup well stirred chunky peanut butter 1/­­4 cup pure maple syrup 3 tablespoons brown rice syrup Directions Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.  Prepare the crust: Place the graham cracker crumbs in a mixing bowl. Drizzle with the oil and mix until moistened. Add the soy milk and mix with your fingers; the crumbs should hold together if pinched. Press the crumbs firmly into the prepared baking pan to form a crust. Prepare the topping: Combine the flour, sugar, spices, and salt in a mixing bowl. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of oil into the flour and mix with your fingertips until crumbs start to form. Keep tossing the mixture with your fingers; you want the crumbs to be fairly large for crumbs. Add more oil if necessary. Prepare the apple filling: Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, coating all the apples. Assemble: Layer the apples onto the crust and sprinkle with the crumb topping. The topping wont solidly cover the entire pan; just sprinkle it randomly over the top so that the apples are peeking through in places. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until the apples are tender. When the bars are close to being done, start preparing the peanut butter caramel:  Mix all the ingredients very well with a fork, in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat for about 3 minutes. The mixture should soften and slide off the fork in ribbons. When the bars are done baking, drizzle the caramel in ribbons all over the top. Let cool completely before serving. You can let them chill in the fridge to cool faster. Slice into bars and serve.

Cabbage and Lemon Risotto

January 20 2021 Golubka Kitchen 

Cabbage and Lemon Risotto I find risotto to be incredibly fun to cook. I like to have something nice to sip by my side, some good music on, and all the ingredients measured out in advance. It’s a preparation process that really gets you in the zone, an almost meditative state of tending to the rice, and watching it magically transform from dry to beautifully creamy. Risotto has a reputation of being fussy, and although it requires constant attention, the ingredients it calls for couldn’t be more modest: alliums like onions and garlic, rice, wine, hot broth, and whatever other items you’d like to add to make it your own. In this recipe, it’s cabbage and lemon, both abundant in the depths of winter. Once you get the hang of it, the preparation becomes second nature as well. We gently stew the cabbage in lemon juice until incredibly tender, so much so that it completely melts and disappears into the risotto. It’s a great way to eat a whole head of cabbage almost without noticing. The bright and assertive flavors from the lemon juice and zest complement the starchiness and richness of the rice really nicely. A small warning: this risotto is quite lemony, so if you’re sensitive to sour flavors, I recommend reducing the amount of lemon (this is detailed in the recipe as well). Also, the lemon mellows out as it sits and in the leftovers. Since this is a vegan recipe, there’s no cheese, but we throw together a quick, ‘cheesy’ cashew dust, a cashew Parm of sorts, and stir it through the risotto. The result is so incredibly cozy and comforting, we hope you’ll give it a try one day this winter! Cabbage and Lemon Risotto   Print Serves: 4-6 Ingredients ¼ cup raw cashews 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast sea salt freshly ground black pepper olive oil 1 medium head white cabbage, thinly sliced with a knife or mandoline zest and juice from 2 small lemons (see note) 1 yellow onion, diced 4 garlic cloves, minced 1½ cups Arborio rice ¼ cup dry white wine 6 cups hot vegetable broth, plus more if needed parsley or other herbs for garnishing (optional) Instructions Pound the cashews in a mortar and pestle or process in a mini food processor, until finely ground. Add the nutritional yeast, a generous pinch of salt, and plenty of black pepper. Mix to combine. Set aside for now. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add enough oil to generously coat the bottom. Add the cabbage and a pinch of salt, and cook for 10 minutes, until the cabbage is just wilted. Add the juice of 1 lemon and stir it in. Turn the heat down to low, and cover the skillet. Cook the cabbage, covered, for 45 minutes, stirring periodically, until very soft. Transfer the cabbage to a bowl and wipe the skillet if needed. Heat the same skillet over medium heat and add more oil to coat the bottom well. Add the onion and a pinch of salt, saute for 7 minutes, until translucent. Add the garlic and stir it around until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the rice and mix well to coat it with the oil. Cook, stirring constantly, until the rice grains are translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Add the juice of 1 remaining lemon and the wine, bring it up to a simmer and cook, stirring often, until the liquid is completely absorbed, about 2 minutes. Start adding the hot broth, one ladleful at a time. Bring the broth to a simmer and let it absorb into the rice, stirring often, about 2-4 minutes. Once absorbed, add another ladleful of broth and keep repeating this process of letting the broth absorb, then adding more. Stir the rice frequently and vigorously - this will help develop the starches/­­make the rice creamy. Add about half of the cabbage during the 4th addition of broth. Add the rest of the cabbage at the next addition of broth, and continue cooking, until the rice is creamy and al dente, and until the cabbage has collapsed completely into the risotto. The whole cooking process should take 25-30 minutes total from the first addition of broth. Turn off the heat, mix in the lemon zest and most of the cashew mixture, saving some for garnishing. Taste for salt and adjust if needed. Serve the risotto right away, garnished with more of the cashew dust and herbs, if using. Notes This dish is quite lemony, so if you are sensitive to sour flavors, use 1 lemon, divided between the cabbage and the rice, instead of the 2 lemons that the recipe calls for. 3.5.3226 The post Cabbage and Lemon Risotto appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

Chocolate Raspberry Overnight Oats

March 17 2021 Golubka Kitchen 

Chocolate Raspberry Overnight Oats I make a variation of these overnight oats all the time. I love that they come together super quickly, make for a great breakfast/­­snack/­­dessert, and are pretty filling, thanks to the addition of chia and hemp. For this decadent raspberry and chocolate version, we make a quick chocolate hemp milk by blending hemp hearts with cacao, maple syrup, and water, which is then used as the soaking liquid for the oats and chia. We also stew some raspberries and layer them between the oats, for that classic chocolate and raspberry flavor pairing. The result is something between breakfast and dessert, and it travels super well, too. Hope you’ll give these oats a try! Chocolate Raspberry Overnight Oats   Print Serves: 4-6 Ingredients 10 oz frozen or fresh raspberries 4 tablespoons maple syrup, divided juice from half a lemon ¼ cup hemp hearts ¼ cup cacao powder 2 cups rolled oats ¼ cup chia seeds Instructions Put the berries in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and let simmer and thaw out, if frozen, for 5-10 minutes, until broken down in parts and jammy. Turn off the heat, add 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and the lemon juice, mix well. Let cool. In an upright blender, combine the hemp hearts, cacao powder, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, and 4 cups of water. Blend on high until smooth. In a large bowl, combine the rolled oats and chia seeds, mix well. Add the chocolate hemp milk, and mix it in. Keep mixing every few minutes, until the oats and chia absorb the liquid and thicken. Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight before enjoying. You can either store the oats and raspberries in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator, and combine when serving, or layer the oats and raspberries in jars, as pictured. Enjoy right out of the fridge. 3.5.3226 The post Chocolate Raspberry Overnight Oats appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

Classic Carrot Cake

February 25 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Classic Carrot Cake Makes 1 9×13 sheet cake or 9-inch round cake Photo By VK Rees It’s almost carrot cake season! Or, maybe if we make a bunch of carrot cake, spring will come early? This is a very classic recipe for the most beloved of desserts. Walnuts, raisins, plenty of spice and, of course, a generous amount of shredded carrot. Olive oil gives the cake a surprisingly buttery flavor that isnt too heavy. The frosting is thick and lemony and lets all of the flavors really shine. It makes a great layer cake, but its pretty awesome as sheet cake, too. Just pick your poison! This recipe is from The Superfun Times Vegan Holiday Cookbook! What a great cookbook. Ingredients For the Cake: 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground ginger 1/­­2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/­­2 teaspoon salt 1 1/­­2 cups granulated sugar 3/­­4 cups unsweetened vegan milk 1/­­2 cup olive oil 1/­­2 cup unsweetened applesauce 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 3 cups shredded carrots  1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts 1 cup raisins For the Crumb Topping: 3 cups powdered sugar 1/­­2 cup refined coconut oil 2 tablespoons lemon juice 2 tablespoons unsweetened vegan milk 1/­­2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract pinch salt 3 tablespoons refined coconut oil, melted For garnish: 3 tablespoons shredded coconut or additional chopped walnuts Directions Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a 9×13 inch or two 9-inch round  baking pans. Sift flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda and baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl.  Beat together milk and flax in a large mixing bowl until frothy. Blend in the olive oil, applesauce and vanilla until well combined.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until no large lumps remain. Fold in carrots, walnuts and raisins.  Pour batter into the prepared pan(s) and bake for 40 to 45 minutes in a sheet pan or 32 to 35 minutes in cake pans, or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely before frosting.  Make the frosting: Melt coconut oil in a medium mixing bowl. Add powdered sugar, juice and salt and blend with a hand mixer on low speed until incorporated. Turn mixer to medium-high speed and continue to blend until smooth. Chill for 30 minutes.  Remove from refrigerator and whip on medium-high speed with mixer until light and fluffy.  For sheet cake: Using a spatula, or spoon, spread icing over cake. Sprinkle with coconut. Cut into squares and serve.  For layer cake: Using a spatula or spoon, frost top of one cake with half the icing. Add the second cake to the top and frost with the rest of the icing. Sprinkle with coconut. Cut into wedges and serve.

Fennel and Lentil Soup with Gremolata

February 17 2021 Golubka Kitchen 

Fennel and Lentil Soup with Gremolata I love fennel, always, but especially during this time of year, when cravings for spring start coming on strong. Fennel’s one-of-a-kind anise flavor, brightness, and crunch really hit the spot, while I dream of verdant spring produce. It’s also citrus season, and simple mandolined fennel and blood orange salads are a favorite (something like this salad, plus segmented or sliced orange, and often without the beans). Fennel is delicious cooked, too – caramelized sauteed fennel, fennel gratin, etc. We also love it in soups, and this week’s recipe is a super simple lentil soup, centered around fennel. We use fennel seeds and bulbs in the soup, and even include the greens from the fennel tops in gremolata, for topping the soup. When it comes to very simple dishes like this one, it’s all about the accompaniments, which is where the gremolata comes in. It’s a condiment kind of similar to Italian salsa verde but without oil, made with just chopped parsley, garlic, and lemon zest. It’s delicious spooned over pretty much any savory fare. That, plus maybe some good, crusty bread, and you’re in for a very cozy meal with this soup. Hope you’ll give it a try! P.S. We just revived our Youtube Channel! Come and stay for simple, seasonal, plant-based cooking and other fun kitchen activities. Our very first video back happens to show you exactly how to make an orange and fennel salad, in case you’re as obsessed with fennel as we are. Fennel and Lentil Soup with Gremolata   Print Serves: 4-6 Ingredients 1 tablespoon fennel seeds 1 large or 2 medium fennel bulbs olive oil sea salt 1 yellow onion, diced small 1 medium carrot, diced small 1 celery stalk, diced small 6 garlic cloves, minced, divided freshly ground black pepper 1 cup brown or French lentils, rinsed 2 bay leaves zest and juice from 1 lemon leaves from 1 small bunch parsley, finely chopped Instructions Toast the fennel seeds in a dry skillet on medium high heat until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Watch closely so as not to burn. Let cool slightly and grind the seeds in a mortar and pestle, spice grinder, or a dedicated coffee grinder. Cut the stalks off the fennel, pick off the tender fronds and set them aside for later. Discard the stalks or save to use for vegetable broth or even for juicing. Cut the fennel into wedges. Heat a soup pot over medium heat and add enough oil to generously coat the bottom. Add the fennel wedges and sprinkle them with salt. Let the fennel caramelize and brown for 3-4 minutes, until the undersides are golden, then flip and repeat on the other side. Transfer the fennel to a plate or bowl for now. Add the onion, carrot, and celery to the pot, along with a pinch of salt. Saute over medium low heat, until the vegetables are soft but not browned, about 10-15 minutes. Add about 5 garlic cloves worth of minced garlic (saving 1 minced clove for the gremolata), ground fennel seeds, and black pepper to taste, stir around until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the fennel wedges, lentils, bay leaves, 6 cups of water, and more salt to taste. Bring to a simmer and simmer, covered, until the lentils and fennel are tender. Brown lentils usually cook in 15-20 minutes, while French lentils take a bit longer, 20-25 minutes. No matter which lentils youre using, start tasting them at 15 minutes to keep them from getting mushy. Once the soup is done, turn off the heat and add the lemon juice. Discard the bay leaves. Taste for salt and pepper, and adjust if needed. While the soup is cooking, make the gremolata. Finely chop the tender fronds reserved from the fennel. In a small bowl, combine the fennel fronds, lemon zest, parsley, and the remaining minced garlic (1 clove). Mix to combine. Serve the soup warm, garnished with the gremolata. 3.5.3226 The post Fennel and Lentil Soup with Gremolata appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

Eggplant-Potato Moussaka

February 5 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Eggplant-Potato Moussaka Feeds around 8, takes about an hour and a half Photo By Kate Lewis This is a Terry recipe from Veganomicon! Can you even tell when a recipe is mine or Terrys? Hint: Terry is less lazy than me. This recipe is actually on the site but we updated it in the last version of the book to use cashew cream. Did you even know that there’s an updated Veganomicon? It’s like really nice with new recipes, old faves, photos by Kate Lewis and stuff. Buy it and update your library! Anyway, we are in for a deep freeze this weekend so I thought Id post a recipe that was a little more involved. It is so satisfying and worth it, and working your oven will keep you nice and warm. Our idyllically vegan version of this traditional Greek casserole tastes like it was made in a restaurant. A fabulous vegan ancient Greek restaurant nestled in a majestic olive grove at the base of Mount Olympus thats been baking vegan moussaka since the goddess Aphrodite first stepped out into the world in of a cab made of sea foam. This mythical restaurant also delivers via pink flying horses paid a fair and living wage to anyone who reads this recipe aloud three times and clicks their golden winged sandals.  If you have no idea what were talking about or what moussaka could be, we still think youll warm up to this gorgeous dish of roasted eggplant, potatoes, and zucchini layered with a subtle cinnamon-spiked tomato sauce blanketed with a creamy cashew and pine nut silken tofu custard (a recipe tester favorite!). This refresh of the original recipe has more tomato sauce and more pine nut cream for a bigger, thicker, even more substantial dish perfect for potlucks or just eating  at home all week long. This reheats beautifully and tastes even better the next day. Serve with slices of crusty peasant bread and a basic salad of sliced ripe tomatoes and cucumbers dressed with lemon and olive oil. Recipe Notes ~Very fresh zucchini may be watery after roasting. If so, when cool enough to handle, gently squeeze the slices by the handful to remove any excess water. See our tips for roasting summer squash (page 35), for further suggestions. Ingredients Vegetable layer: 1 pound eggplant 1 pound zucchini 1 1/­­2 pounds russet or large baking potatoes (large, long potatoes work perfectly in this recipe) 3 tablespoons olive oil plus more for brushing Salt For the Sauce: 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/­­2 cup finely chopped shallots 3 cloves garlic, minced 3 (15 ounce) cans diced fire roasted tomatoes 2 teaspoons dried oregano 1/­­2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 2 bay leaves 1 1/­­2 teaspoons salt For the Cashew Cream: 1/­­2 cup unroasted cashews, soaked for an hour or so, then drained 2 tablespoons olive oil 12 ounces soft silken tofu 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon arrowroot powder 2 cloves garlic, chopped 1 teaspoon dried oregano 1/­­4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 teaspoon salt To assemble: 1/­­2 cup fine dry breadcrumbs 1/­­4 cup pine nuts Olive oil, nutmeg, oregano for dusting top of casserole Directions Prepare the vegetables: Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line three large baking sheets with parchment paper, and generously oil the sheets with olive oil. Wash the eggplant and zucchini, and trim the stems. Scrub and peel the potatoes. Slice the eggplant, zucchini, and potatoes lengthwise into approximately 1/­­4-inch-thick slices. Arrange vegetable slices on a separate baking sheets in a single layer: do not overlap slices. Brush slices with olive oil and sprinkle vegetables with little bit of sea salt. Roast the pans of zucchini and eggplant for 15 minutes, or until tender. The potatoes may take longer, about 20 to 22 minutes, until slices can be easily pierced with a fork. Remove from oven and continue make the sauces. While the vegetables are cooking, prepare the tomato sauce:  Heat olive oil and minced garlic in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Cook the garlic for about 30 seconds, then add the shallots and cook until soft and translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the wine and simmer to reduce slightly, about 2 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes, oregano, ground cinnamon, bay leaves, and salt. Partially cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 12 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. The sauce should reduce slightly. Turn off the heat and remove the bay leaf. Make the cashew cream:  In a food processor, blend the cashews and olive oil, scraping the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula, until a creamy paste forms. Add the remaining cream topping ingredients. Blend until completely creamy and smooth. Assemble the moussaka, opa! Grease a 9 x 13-inch casserole with olive oil and preheat the oven again to 400°F. Spread 1/­­4 cup of sauce on the pan, then add successive layers in order of eggplant, potatoes, sauce, and half the bread crumbs. Spread all the zucchini on top of this. Top with a final layer each of eggplant, potatoes, sauce, and bread crumbs. Use a rubber spatula to evenly spread the tofu nut cream over the entire top layer. Decorate top by scattering with pine nuts and healthy drizzles of olive oil. Dust the top generously with dried oregano and a tiny pinch of nutmeg.  Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes, uncover and bake another 15, then broil top for 2-4 minutes until browned spots appear (for that authentic Greek homemade casserole touch). For easier slicing, cool 10 minutes to allow the topping to firm up.

No-Bake Vegan Lemon Bars

No-Bake Vegan Lemon Bars These No-Bake Vegan Lemon Bars require just six ingredients. Whip up these bars for a weekday pick-me-up, packing in school lunches, etc.  These vegan lemon bars are a breeze to whip up--made with shredded coconut, almond flour, lemon juice and zest, and maple syrup.

I find that both of them help to elevate that tartness and sweetness in the no-bake bars.  Maple Syrup | I wanted to use maple syrup to sweeten the bars.

Vegan Glutenfree Vanilla Donuts Recipe

January 11 2021 Vegan Richa 

Vegan Glutenfree Vanilla Donuts RecipeThis Vegan Glutenfree Donuts recipe features a blend of oat and almond flour and results in super moist and fluffy baked vanilla donuts that taste a bit like Snickerdoodle Cookies. Dipped into cinnamon sugar – the perfect sweet afternoon or breakfast treat! Meet my favorite Glutenfree Donuts Recipe! This vegan and gluten-free Vanilla Donuts recipe is going to rock your world and your tastebuds. Trust me, these are one of the best baked gf +v donuts I have ever made and they are super simple to throw together, too. WIN! I love making donuts on a lazy Saturday Morning and these ones are especially great if you want to get the kids involved! They can help to make the batter, and then dip the donuts into the cinnamon sugar mix. I recommend you make a double batch and freeze some vanilla donuts for quick snacking whenever those afternoon sugar cravings hit. No Yeast! The donut batter does not use any yeast for rising. We only use baking powder and baking soda. Therefore it can also be baked into regular size muffins or mini vanilla muffins. Hello, Valentines Day Breakfast! You could also use a mini donuts pan but you would have to reduce the baking time. The secret to gluten-free and vegan baking is adding air to the batter before it even goes into bake. You can do this several ways such as adding some whipped aquafaba , adding in citric acid in the dry ingredients, Or adding in aerated club soda! I like to use club soda these days because living up Aquafaba just takes too much time. Any freshly open fizzy drink makes these really soft and moist.
