Vegan Whole Wheat Date Ladoo

before yesterday Vegan Richa 

Vegan Whole Wheat Date LadooFor a sweet festival treat that is naturally sweetened, try my Whole Wheat Date Ladoo recipe. A wholesome vegan twist on a traditional Indian sweet made with whole wheat flour, almond flour, nuts, and dates! Soy-free + Gluten-free option. Try these Date sweetened Wheat ladoo (atte ka laddu) for the festive season without all the ghee and cups of sugar! They are quick and easy to make and are great for gifting, too. What is Laddu or Ladoo? The term laddu or ladoo stands for sweetened round balls usually made from flour, sugar/­­ jaggery, and ghee or oil! As for flavorings, nuts and spices like cardamon, saffron tend to be included and as you can imagine, Indian cuisine offers a variety of laddu recipes for all occasions. Some using besan, others semolina (Rava), whole wheat flour, or various millet flours, rice flours, etc! Just here on the blog, you actually already find many different types, made with a variety of flavors, like these coconut ones. YUM! Today we make atta ladoo.  Traditional wheat ladoo recipes call for ghee and wheat flour.  I have previously even made oil-free Ladoos using a maple syrup and those work out amazing as well. For this date ladoo recipe, we use a blend of whole wheat flour, almond flour, and flax meal which makes these taste nutty and wholesome. I like flavoring these with cardamom – a spice which you should always use sparingly and work your way up if need be. Some chopped cashews make these richer and melted vegan butter is added for moisture and texture but these would actually even work with oil instead of butter or no oil at all.   MORE DIWALI SWEETS - Coconut Ladoo - Vegan Rabri Recipe – Indian Milk Pudding - Vegan Malai Burfi - Mango Sheera /­­ Halwa  - Mango Burfi  - Kesar Peda - Rasmalai Cake Also make sure to check out my round-up post on Vegan Indian Sweets for more inspiration.Continue reading: Vegan Whole Wheat Date LadooThe post Vegan Whole Wheat Date Ladoo appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Baked Gobi Manchurian – Cauliflower Manchurian

October 8 2021 Vegan Richa 

Baked Gobi Manchurian – Cauliflower ManchurianIn this lightened-up take on the Indian-Chinese restaurant-favorite Gobi Manchurian, cauliflower florets are baked up until crispy, then drenched in a sweet and spicy delicious manchurian sauce! Serve it as an appetizer or main dish. Gluten-free option.  I’m always excited when I can present you with an easy spin on a restaurant favorite and today I have a good one for you! One of those special-occasion restaurant menu items that we all love to order when eating out but never considered making at home. Cauliflower Manchurian! This makes a great addition to the festival menu! What is Cauliflower Manchurian? Gobi Manchurian, or Cauliflower Manchurian, is a super popular take-out and restaurant menu item. This  Indo-Chinese dish is typically fried but I prefer to bake the florets in the oven. Baking gives cauliflower an amazing texture; you won’t miss the greasy, fried coating. The crispy oven-baked florets are then tossed with a delicious sweet, spicy, and tangy Manchurian sauce! This easy vegan dish makes for the most delicious appetizer but it can also be served as a main  when paired with rice. The ingredient list for making cauliflower manchurian is on the longer side but don’t be intimidated by that. Most ingredients are pantry staples and the preparation is so easy so it’s so worth it! Manchurian sauce is a very versatile sauce. You can add some Crisped tofu,  veggie meatballs or vegan chicken to the sauce or add in some noodles.

Korean BBQ Soy Curls Crunchwrap

August 7 2021 Vegan Richa 

Korean BBQ Soy Curls CrunchwrapTry this vegan crunchwrap recipe – a veganized and fusion version! Completely homemade with Korean BBQ Soy Curls, vegan cheese shreds and veggies for the filling. Vegan Crunchwraps have been on constant rotation at my home. These are just SO GOOD! Anyone who loves tacos, wraps and tostadas needs to try this vegan and fusion spin on a Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme! If you have not tried or even heard of crunchwraps, think of it as a soft tortilla packed with layers of some kind of protein & cheese and other layers and a crispy tostada shell. Then all is folded into a neat bundle and pan-fried until crisp. Like most homemade versions of fast-food chain favorites, Crunchwraps taste even better made using fresh, wholesome ingredients! The secret ingredient to a Crunchwrap is a crunchy tostada placed right in the center, separating the cooked from the fresh fillings. As for my fillings, I went with soy curls marinated in a spicy Korean BBQ Marinade with Gochujang. You can use sambal oelek  if you cannot find the Korean chili paste. You can adjust the toppings to make these a bit healthier (low-fat vegan cheeses and up the veggies) and even swap out the white flour tortilla for a whole wheat tortilla or a gluten-free one! Everyone can build their own crunchwrap. These are totally customizable and you can add whatever filling you want. This is where I want to mention that these are also great to use up leftover taco fillings of any kind!

Punjabi Aloo Paratha

March 26 2021 Manjula's kitchen 

Punjabi Aloo Paratha (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Punjabi Aloo Paratha .wprm-recipe-rating .wprm-rating-star.wprm-rating-star-full svg * { fill: #343434; } Aloo Parathas make for the perfect lazy weekend brunch. Parathas can be made plain or with a variety of different fillings. A flavorful potato filling is by far the most popular. Aloo Parathas are very popular in North India, at any time of the day. In Punjab, Aloo Parathas are a staple for breakfast. Traditionally, Aloo Parathas are served with homemade butter and buttermilk known as chaas. I'm sure you are thinking that making these parathas is very time consuming. With our busy schedules and hectic mornings, how is possible to prepare these! Of course, parathas taste best when fresh off a hot skillet! An easy solution to this problem is to simply prepare part of the recipe in advance until you are ready to roll the parathas. You can prepare the dough and filling in advance and have the potato-mix filled balls ready to just start rolling. The prepared dough can be refrigerated for up to two days. Enjoy! This Recipe will make 4 parathas.

Knead dough well on a lightly greased surface to make the dough soft, smooth, and pliable. Set the dough aside and cover. Let the dough rest at least ten minutes. FillingIn a bowl take mash potatoes add green chilies, cilantro, cumin seeds, garam masala, mango powder, and salt, mix it well. Making parathaDivide the dough into 4 equal parts and roll them into balls. Then divide the potato filling into 4 parts and shape into balls. Potato balls should be about 1 1/­­2 times larger than the dough balls. Roll dough ball into a 3 circle. Place a filling ball in the center. Pull the edges of the dough to wrap it around the potato filling. Repeat to make all six balls. Let the filled balls settle three to four minutes. Meanwhile heat heavy skillet on medium high heat until moderately hot. To test, sprinkle water on the skillet. If the water sizzles right away, the skillet is ready. Press the filled ball lightly on dry whole wheat flour from both sides. Using a rolling pin, roll the balls lightly to make six-inch circles, keeping the sealed side of the balls on top. If the dough sticks to the rolling pin or rolling surface, lightly dust the parathas with dry flour. Oil the skillet and place the paratha on the skillet. When the paratha starts to change color and begins to puff up, flip it over. You will notice some olden-brown spots. After a few seconds, drizzle one teaspoon of oil over the paratha, and spread with spatula. Flip the paratha again and lightly press the puffed areas with a spatula. Flip again and press with a spatula making sure the paratha is golden-brown on both sides. Repeat for the remaining parathas. Parathas are best served hot and crispy. They will be soft if not served hot. If you are not going to serve them right away, cool them on a wire rack to keep them from getting soggy. Parathas can be kept unrefrigerated for up to two days wrapped in aluminum foil or in a covered container. For later use, parathas can be refrigerated three to four days or frozen for up to a month. Re-heat using a skillet or oven. NotesVariations Substitute chopped cilantro with 1/­­4 cup finely chopped mint leaves, or experiment with your favorite herb. Be sure to pat the herbs dry before adding to the mixture. Serving Suggestions - Parathas can be served with Tomato Chutney, Plain Yogurt, mattar Paneer, Green Chili pickle. - Serve it like a Mexican quesadilla by topping it with cheese and sliced tomatoes, then folding it in half.

Inspiration for Vegetarian Recipes

March 9 2021 Manjula's kitchen 

Inspiration for Vegetarian Recipes As you all know, Indian cuisine will always be my favorite cuisine. It will always have a special place in my heart. However, we are living in different times. Our lifestyle has changed with the emerging culture. The same thing is happening with food. I like that the norms are changing. My family, especially my grandkids, are not happy just with traditional Indian food; they need variety, just like me. I experiment with the different food from different cultures, staying true to my guidelines. Thus, the challenge comes. I have never tried some of these dishes. Finding vegetarian dishes in any given cuisine is not that big of a problem; the problem is finding recipes without onion and garlic. I go on google and YouTube, searching for recipes and creating a dish that makes sense to me. First, I try different sauces. I think that makes it easy to create the dishes for that cuisine. My family gets to try my creations and give me their honest opinions.  They are all brutally honest with their opinions.  Some are hits and some not so much! Believe me, it is not easy to take these hard rejections because I have spent many hours on making these recipes.  Italian is easy; they like marinara sauce, white sauce, pesto, all of which can be used in so many different dishes. I am also very fond of Mexican cuisine! Using salsa and enchilada sauce, many dishes can be made: enchiladas, burritos, taco salad, and many more.    I also have my version of Asian peanut sauce which tastes great in Asian bowls, salads, and wraps. This is a favorite of my oldest granddaughter! I use these sauces in my recipes while making different dishes. Alex has been asking me to do the videos just for the different sauces just like I do for Indian chutneys. It will be easy to refer to when you are doing the next recipe and dont have to repeat the sauce again. Keeping that in mind, I just did the recipe for pesto sauce. The next curry sauce I am trying is Thai Red curry sauce. The post Inspiration for Vegetarian Recipes appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

November 4 2020 Manjula's kitchen 

Happy Karva Chauth to all the lovely married folks! Karva Chauth is a traditional Hindu festival in some parts of India. Married women fast all day, wishing for their husbands health and long life. In some cases, and for those who wish to make this holiday more modern, both husbands and wives may fast together. This is pretty new and Ive seen this only occasionally! My elder daughter-in-law is very traditional and really enjoys this special festival. She takes pleasure in all the rituals associated with Karva Chauth. This years menu is simple but delicious. I plan on making Gatte ki sabji (which is a Rajasthani dish and my daughter-in-laws favorite!), Aloo Methi, Puris, Rice, and of course Gulgula. It will be a satisfying meal for all of the fasting married women!  The post Happy Karva Chauth to all the lovely married folks! appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

A creamy dairy-free vanilla ice cream with a fruity blueberry swirl sandwiched between two delicious chocolate cookie dough layers! These are perfect in every way – chewy chocolate cookie meets creamy dreamy vanilla ice cream with little bursts of blueberries in every bite! These vanilla ice cream sandwiches are perfect for summer. The cookie dough layer of these chocolate vanilla ice cream sandwiches consists of a simple cookie dough made from a mix of almond flour, oat flour, cocoa powder with some chocolate chips mixed in. For sweetness, I use a mix of brown sugar and maple syrup which, along with a pinch of cinnamon, makes these taste so cozy. The ice cream is made using a base of coconut milk, soaked cashews, sugar, and vanilla. The mixture is blended until smooth, then cooked a bit to thicken and to reduce the water content. Because water is what makes ice cream hard in the freezer. The thickened cashew ice cream base has the perfect amount of sugar and fat so it freezes well without getting icy. You can make these sandwiches as big or as small as you want. I like to slice these decadent sandwiches into smaller pieces when I am entertaining!

Jo Jo Potatoes are potatoes wedges that are (sometimes) preboiled, then coated in seasoned flour and a batter and fried to crispy, golden-brown perfection. The outsides are nice and crisp, the insides are fluffy like a perfectly baked potato. These upgraded potato wedges make a wonderful side dish, TV snack, or a shared appetizer, and are typically served with lots of different sauces and condiments like plain or seasoned sour cream, ketchup,  or barbecue sauce! Also so good with  Ranch  Dressing or any vegan Ranch Dip. I’ll list my favorite dips for this vegan version in a second. You might find these special potato wedges as a gas station snack but they can also be part of any diner breadbasket of the midwest, upper midwest, and Pacific Northwest. What is the difference between JoJo and potato wedges? A true Jojo potato is a potato cut into eight segments, breaded with flour and batter – like fried chicken, and cooked in a pressure fryer. Well, I don’t have a pressure fryer and I bet you don’t either but that’s ok! You can either bake these in the oven or pan-fry them! Also, a true jo jo is served with ranch.  In the tips section, I list my favorite vegan dips for these.

Khasta Kachori Besan

April 2 2021 Manjula's kitchen 

Khasta Kachori Besan (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Khasta Kachori Besan .wprm-recipe-rating .wprm-rating-star.wprm-rating-star-full svg * { fill: #343434; } Khasta kachori is a delicacy from north India. Khasta kachori is a spicy puffed pastry. Kachories are made with a variety of different filling, and I have many recipes for Khasta Kachori. They are my favorite over samosa. Maybe one of the reasons is I can prepare them even a few days before and can be served at room temperature and served many different ways, even serving as chaat. Traditionally kachori is sold at HALWAI (a sweet and snack shop). Today, I am using spicy besan filling. These mouthwatering Kachories can be served as a snack, chaat or part of the main meal, making the meal exotic. This recipe will make 12 kachories and will serve 4. Course Appetizer Cuisine Indian Prep Time 25 minutes Cook Time 20 minutes Total Time 45 minutes Servings 4 people IngredientsFor Dough1 cup All Purpose flour plain flour or maida 1/­­4 tsp salt 2 Tbsp oil 1/­­3 cup lukewarm water For Filling 1/­­2 cup besan 2 Tbsp oil 1 tsp fennel seeds coarsely grinded saunf 2 tsp coriander seeds coarsely grinded dhania 2 tsp red chili flakes 1 tsp mango powder amchoor 1/­­8 tsp asafetida hing 1/­­2 tsp salt adjust to your taste 1/­­4 tsp dry ginger powder InstructionsTo make dough.In a bowl mix the flour, salt and oil rubbing together, this help making crust crispy. Add the warm water slowly dough should be firm, let the dough sit for at least 10 minutes. In mean time we can make the filling. To make fillingHeat the oil over low heat add besan and all the spices for filling fennel, coriander, red chili, mango powder, ginger powder, asafetida, and salt. Roast the besan over low heat stirring continuously, for 2-3 minutes until spice mix becomes aromatic. Turn of the heat and take out the mix in a bowl add about 3 tablespoons of warm water and mix it well, this will make sticky dough and let it sit for five minutes. Besan will absorb the water and will become crumbly. To make the KachorisTake the dough and knead it for a minute. Divide the dough in twelve equal parts. Take one part of the dough and with your fingers flatten the edges and make into 3-inch circle. Leaving center little thicker than edges. Mold the dough into a cup and place about 1-1/­­2 teaspoons of filling in the center. Pull the edges of the dough to wrap the dal filling. Proceed to make all 12 balls. Let the filled ball sit for three to four minutes before rolling. Set the filled ball on a flat surface with the seam facing up. Roll it pressing with your palm evenly, in about three inches in diameter. Heat the oil in frying pan over medium heat frying pan should have about one inch of oil. To check if oil is ready put a little piece of dough in the oil. Dough should sizzle and come up very slow. Fry them on medium-low heat. After they start to puff, slowly turn them over. Fry until golden-brown on both sides. This should take about five minutes. If the kachoris are fried on high heat, they will get soft and will not be crispy. NotesKachories can be stored for at least a week in an airtight container. If kachories get soft warm up the kachoris in an oven on 200-degree F for about 7 to 10 minutes, this will bring back the freshness and crispness. Serving Suggestion: Serve the Khasta Kchories plain, or with tamarind chutney and yogurt as chaat, or serve the kachories as main meal and serve them with aloo dum, Boondi Raita The post Khasta Kachori Besan appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

Coconut Paratha

February 22 2021 Manjula's kitchen 

Coconut Paratha (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Coconut Paratha .wprm-recipe-rating .wprm-rating-star.wprm-rating-star-full svg * { fill: #343434; } Coconut Paratha is a delicacy, I make parathas with so many different fillings, but I will say this is very different from others. Coconut Paratha can be served with the main meal, but one can also enjoy this as a snack with a hot cup of chai. One day, my younger sister Kumkum, who is an excellent cook, called me from India and told me that I must try this coconut paratha, that I will love it. So, in fact, this is her recipe. She is also a big help who I can call when I get lost with the new recipes I am trying. She always has good suggestions. This paratha has a complex flavor. Usually, stuffed parathas are not very thin, but coconut paratha is very thin and mildly spiced. They taste best when they are served hot. The paratha is crispy from outside and its inside filling has a different texture that is well balanced. Coconut parathas also taste as delicious when they are served at room temperature with pickle. This recipe will make 8 parathas. Course Bread Cuisine Indian Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 20 minutes Total Time 30 minutes Servings 8 parathas IngredientsFor Dough1 cup whole wheat flour 2 Tbsp oil 1/­­4 tsp salt For filling 1/­­4 cup coconut powder 1/­­4 cup milk 1/­­2 cup milk powder 1/­­4 tsp salt 1/­­4 tsp red chili powder 2 tsp sugar Also Need 1/­­4 cup whole wheat flour for rolling. 4 Tbsp oil for cooking paratha InstructionsMaking DoughMix flour, salt, and oil, add the water as needed to make a soft dough. Knead dough for about two minutes on a lightly greased surface to make the dough soft, smooth, and pliable. Set the dough aside and cover it. Let the dough rest at least ten minutes. FillingIn a microwave bowl mix coconut powder, milk powder, and milk together, (dont use a very small bowl, otherwise the milk will boil out of the bowl). Microwave for 1 minute, Mix it well. Mix should be moist. If mix is very soft microwave again for few more seconds. Mix should still be white in color. After the mix cools off add salt, sugar, and red chili powder and mix it well. Making ParathaDivide the dough into eight equal parts and form into balls. Roll the dough balls into a 3 circle. Place one tablespoon of filling in the center. Pull the edges of the dough to wrap it around the filling. Repeat to make all eight balls. Let the filled balls settle three to four minutes. Press the filled ball lightly on dry flour from both sides. Using a rolling pin, roll the balls keeping the sealed side up. If the dough sticks to the rolling pin or rolling surface, lightly dust the parathas with dry flour; roll the paratha into a seven-inch circle. Heat a heavy skillet on medium high heat until moderately hot. To test, sprinkle water on the skillet. If the water sizzles right away, the skillet is ready. Place the paratha on the skillet. When the paratha starts to change color and begins to puff up, flip it over. You will notice some golden-brown spots. After a few seconds, drizzle a half teaspoon of oil over the paratha. Flip the paratha and put again a half teaspoon of oil. Lightly press the puffed areas with a spatula. This will help the paratha to puff. Flip again and press with a spatula making sure the paratha is golden-brown on both sides. Repeat for the remaining parathas. Parathas are best served hot and crispy. They will be soft as they cool off. Notes - Parathas can be kept unrefrigerated for up to two days wrapped in aluminum foil or in a covered container. - For later use, parathas can be refrigerated six to seven days or frozen for up to a month. Reheat using a skillet or oven. - They also taste great at room temperature.   Serving Suggestions Serve Paratha with Sweet and Sour Guava Curry, Spicy Squash - Kaddu Ki Subji, Mango Pickle The post Coconut Paratha appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

Firecracker Tofu Wings

January 15 2021 Vegan Richa 

Firecracker Tofu WingsSweet and Spicy Crispy Baked Firecracker Tofu Wings – an addictive vegan appetizer that will leave you wanting more. This is a super easy and delicious tofu recipe that’s perfect for Game Day, parties, movie night, or any occasion that calls for crowd-pleasing snacks. I am not in the habit of calling a recipe addicting, but if anything would deserve that kind of etiquette, it would be these Firecracker Tofu Wings. They are perfectly crispy on the outside, soft and on the inside, and soak up all of the sweet and spicy firecracker sauce! Like takeout, just way better plus all plant-based and lower in artificial ingredients than the takeout version. Every bite of these baked tofu wings is absolutely delicious and you will find yourself automatically reaching for the next wing while still munching on the first one! Don’t say I did not warn you! Bookmark this one for your next movie night or Game Day. What is firecracker sauce? Firecracker sauce is a simple sweet and hot Asian-inspired stir-fry sauce that goes well with just about anything and is especially great for spicing up anything rather neutral-tasting – from cauliflower to tofu! Traditional restaurant-style firecracker sauce has a hefty dose of sugar to make it more sweet than hot. With my sauce, I go a bit heavier on the spice and flavor and lower on the sugar. Anything from 2 1/­­2 – 3 tbsp will be just enough. Start with 2/­­1 tbsp and add some more to taste. You might not even need the whole amount.

Aloo Palak (Spinach with Potatoes)

Aloo Palak (Spinach with Potatoes) (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Aloo Palak (Spinach with Potatoes) .wprm-recipe-rating .wprm-rating-star.wprm-rating-star-full svg * { fill: #343434; } Aloo Palak is a versatile side dish that is a great complement to any meal. Aloo (potatoes) and Palak (spinach) are two vegetables I always have in my kitchen. Potatoes we all know are used in so many ways and have endless recipes. I also use spinach in many dishes. I thought I had done this recipe a long time ago, but today I made this dish for my family after some time and they enjoyed it very much and asked me if I have done this video recipe. I was looking on my website and realized I have not done this recipe yet. This is a common recipe, but this is my version of Aloo Palak. Adding fenugreek seeds and besan (gram flour) kicks off the flavor to the dish. For me and Alex, this is a comfort dish. This recipe is also vegan and gluten free. I serve this as a side dish, or I enjoy rolling it in a Roti or Paratha to make a to-go lunch. Alex especially enjoys making grilled cheese sandwiches filled with leftover Aloo Palak. I have done many recipes for spinach: Palak Paneer, Saag, Spinach Crisps, Chole Palak, Palak Puri This recipe will serve 4. Course Main Course Cuisine Indian Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 20 minutes Total Time 30 minutes Servings 4 people Ingredients2 cup potatoes cut into small pieces I used 2 medium size potatoes 4 cup spinach finely chopped, approx. 8oz 1/­­2 cup tomato finely chopped 4 Tbsp oil 1 tsp cumin seed jeera 1/­­4 tsp fenugreek seeds methi optional 1 Tbsp besan gram flour 1 Tbsp coriander powder dhania 1/­­2 tsp red chili powder adjust to taste 1/­­4 tsp turmeric haldi 1 tsp salt 1/­­2 tsp mango powder amchoor InstructionsHeat the oil in a saucepan. The oil should be moderately hot. Add the cumin seeds as they crack add besan, and fenugreek seeds. Stir for about one minute, besan will become aromatic and will be light golden brown. Next add tomato, coriander, red chili powder, and turmeric. Stir-fry spice mix until spice mix starts leaving the oil. It should take about 2 minutes. Add potatoes, spinach, and 1/­­2 cup of water, cover the pan. Let it cook over medium heat. The potatoes should be very tender but not mushy and should be covered with spinach. NotesDo stir in between besan can stick to the bottom of the pan. I did stir once in between. If needed, add a little more water. Aloo Palak should not be very dry, it should be moist. Add mango powder and stir, turn off the heat. Aloo Palak is ready. The post Aloo Palak (Spinach with Potatoes) appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

Gingerbread People

December 20 2020 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Gingerbread People Makes around 16 cookies Photo by James Walmsley Whether youre going all out with your decorating or you’re a part of the gingerbread minimalist movement, this recipe is a surefire winner that will have you singing Christmas carols to your cat. Or at least that one Pogues song. This recipe has been on the site since the dawn of time, so let me take this moment to suggest that you color your icing with natural stuff simply because its fun and pretty. There are certainly vegan food colorings out there, too. But its nice to have these ingredients on hand for other baking projects when you want to slay Instagram. Pink: beet powder, freeze dried strawberries grated with a microplane  Hot pink/­­fucscia: dragonfruit powder Orange: freeze dried mango (its more peach, not very saturated) Green: matcha powder Purple: freeze dried blackberries or blueberries grated with a microplane Blue: spirulina, butterfly pea flower powder (turns purple with acidic ingredients) Ingredients For the cookies: 1/­­3 cup canola oil 3/­­4 cup granulated sugar 1/­­4 cup light molasses 1/­­4 cup plain unsweetened vegan milk 2 cups all purpose flour 1/­­2 teaspoon baking soda 1/­­2 teaspoon baking powder 1/­­2 teaspoon salt 1/­­2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/­­2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/­­4 teaspoon ground cloves 1 1/­­2 teaspoons ground ginger For the icings: 2 cups confectioners sugar, sifted if clumpy 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice 1/­­4 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 tablespoons warm water Directions In a large bowl whisk together oil and sugar for about 3 minutes. Add molasses and milk. The molasses and milk wont really blend with the oil but thats ok. Sift in half the flour, all the baking powder, soda and salt and all the spices and mix until relatively smooth. Add the remaining flour. Mix until a stiff dough is formed.  Form the dough into a disd, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for an hour or up to 3 days in advance. If you chill longer than an hour you may want to let it sit for 10 minutes to warm up a bit before proceeding. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray two parchment lined baking sheets with cooking oil.  On a lightly floured surface roll the dough out to a little less than 1/­­4 inch thick. Cut shapes with cookie cutters and use a thin spatula to gently place on cookie sheets. If you are using them to decorate a tree or something, remember to punch a hole in their heads (!) before baking. Bake for 8 minutes if they’re small and up to 12 minutes if they’re large, but be careful not to overbake. They should be lightly brown on the bottom but still soft. Remove from oven and let them cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet then move to a cooling rack. Wait until they are completely cool before icing. Meanwhile, make the glaze: Mix everything together until there are no lumps. Let it sit for 30 minutes or so to set up a bit. If it is too stiff to pipe, add water a teaspoon at a time. Decorate with a piping bag fit with a small, round tip. Be adorable. Look at Pinterest first for ideas Let set for at least 30 minutes.

WORLD 2.0 vegan cookbook on Kickstarter

November 2 2020 The Lotus and the Artichoke 

WORLD 2.0 vegan cookbook on Kickstarter Visit Kickstarter to pre-order: http:/­­/­­kck.st/­­2TE62bO  My first book has been a bestseller for almost eight years, but ever since the sequels came out, I’ve wanted to go back and massively upgrade the visuals on the original book: to re-do the cover artwork and re-shoot most of the food photos. After publishing 5 other books and spending additional years in the kitchens of the world, I knew I could improve the recipes, add outstanding dishes that didn’t make it into the first versions, and bring more culinary authenticity and cultural awareness to the entire book. The newly updated, re-photographed and freshly illustrated edition of The Lotus and the Artichoke – Vegan Recipes from World Adventures is my classic, first journey in the world of vegan cookbooks reimagined and upgraded. Its my tribute to powerful memories, awesome individuals, and fantastic meals that Ive made, found, and shared with countless others like you. I’ve wanted to re-create my first cookbook for years, but the opportunity didn’t really arise until the surprises and challenges that have been this monster of a year, 2020. Yasai Izakaya Genki, Tokyo 2019 You see, I’d planned to return to Japan and continue my adventures from late 2019. Ultimately, now, Id be wrapping up The Lotus and the Artichoke – JAPAN. But when Corona hit, not only did it cancel nearly all my events and most of my income, like for so many people, lockdowns and border closures meant drastic changes not just daily life but to our travel plans as well. The struggle to return to a form of life that is more predictable and free has been different for all of us. As life has become more routine and restricted, our travels have been more in our minds and through the eyes of others-- through art, music, video and social media. A big part of my own escape these last months has been getting into the kitchen and diving back into my first cookbook - revisiting the intense dishes, unforgettable places and global flavors that shaped my life and projects over the last eight years. Ive cooked for the family, for friends, and for neighbors.
