Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Date Caramel Snack Bars

May 16 2021 Vegan Richa 

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Date Caramel Snack BarsThese Vegan Date Caramel Bars are the best grab-and-go snack for all lovers of oatmeal bars, chocolate, and caramel. Easy & delicious oatmeal chocolate chip bars made completely from scratch in no time, layered with creamy homemade date caramel. These Vegan Oatmeal Date Caramel Bars are a wonderful thing. They are a bit like Carmelita Bars, but with some shredded coconut added on top which makes them even better! If you have not tried date caramel before, be prepared to fall in love. Date Caramel is basically just softened dates, pureed with a little liquid like a splash of non-dairy milk, some maple syrup, and a bit of fat ( like almond butter). What comes out of the food processor is just so similar to cooked caramel that you can replicate all your favorite non-vegan chocolate bars with it. These Date Caramel Bars are basically Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Snack Bars with a caramel layer in the middle  – just so good! I mean, its pretty hard to go wrong when you combine chewy oats, dark chocolate, and ooey gooey caramel into a snack bar, right? Kids love these and so do adults.   I love to make these vegan date caramel bars in advance and bring them over to a friends house for dessert whenever I’m invited for a dinner. They also make an amazing brunch buffet or potluck item. Thankfully, theyre super portable (just bring them over in the pan) and hold up well at room temperature.

Sausage Oatmeal Pancakes

April 17 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Sausage Oatmeal Pancakes Makes 6 big pancakes Some recipes make you question everything you thought you knew. Who am I? How did I get here? Is it a good place to be? The answer seems simple. I love pancakes. I love oatmeal. I love vegan sausages. But combining a million good things doesnt always mean you will end up with a good thing. I mean, I love oil and I love water but you know the rest. So I fucked around and found out. And I am here to tell you: combining all these things leads to an even better thing. Pancakes that are savory, with a fluffy yet hearty texture. The most filling delicious breakfast! A steady stream of maple syrup poured over the top doesnt hurt one bit. I also sprinkled with a little flake sea salt to up that sweet and salty combo. Without further ado, Oatmeal Sausage Pancakes. Your new favorite breakfast. Recipe notes: ~I do have a recipe for homemade breakfast sausages but Im not giving it to you yet. I would recommend either Field Roast Maple Breakfast Links or Beyond Sausage. Field roast is a little more on the sweet side so whatever floats your boat! ~ I have a lot of pancake tips all over the site, but Im not sure Ive ever written this one: If your pancakes arent cooking through, try covering them while cooking. ~ I love cooking pancakes in refined coconut oil! So buttery and yum. But you can cook in oil or vegan butter as well. I recommend Miyoko’s Butter for topping them, too. Ingredients 7 oz vegan sausages 1 1/­­4 cups all-purpose flour  1/­­2 cup quick cooking rolled oats  2 1/­­4 teaspoons baking powder 1/­­4 teaspoon salt  1 1/­­2 cups unsweetened soymilk (or fave vegan milk) 1/­­4 cup unsweetened applesauce 1 tablespoon safflower (or any mild vegetable oil) 1 tablespoon sugar  1/­­2 teaspoon vanilla Refined coconut oil for cooking Directions Refined coconut oil for cooking  In a non-stick pan over medium heat, cook the sausages in a little oil. Once cooked, set them aside to cool completely. When they are cool enough to handle, tear them into tiny pieces. No need to wash the pan, you will be using it for pancakes in a bit and the sausage oil will taste good! Pop them in the freezer to cool completely while you make the pancake batter. Combine flour, oats, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and add milk, applesauce, oil, sugar and vanilla.  Use a rubber spatula to stir the wet a bit to combine, then incorporate it with the dry, mixing just until everything is moistened. Fold cool, crumbled sausages into the batter. Let batter rest 10 minutes.  Preheat pan over medium heat. Melt coconut oil for each pancake. Scoop a scant 1/­­2 cup into the pan and cook until bubbly, then cover with a lid for another minute or two so it cooks through. Flip and cook on the other side till lightly brown. Proceed with the rest of the pancakes! When serving, sprinkle with flake sea salt after pouring the syrup if you love sweet and salty. I also threw on some maple butter, yum.

Khasta Kachori Besan

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.

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.

Also, as per Alexs request, I did not add spinach. After trying to make a new recipe, I landed on Paneer Tomato Curry. Alex really enjoyed this. I knew this was a hit with him because he cleaned up the entire plate. You all know he is my videographer, so this was the next recipe he wanted me to make.I have done many paneer recipes.

Tempeh Beet Reubens

January 8 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Tempeh Beet Reubens Makes 4 sandwiches Photo By Joshua Food I have to issue a few warnings for this sandwich:  1)  you will end up covered in orange dressing  2) some sauerkraut will fall on your cats head And if those things dont happen, youre eating it wrong. Tangy tempeh and thin sliced beets lend a cornbeefy Eastern European flair and a gorgeous burgundy hue. With the caraway rye, sauerkraut and russian dressing, youll definitely be hitting all the right notes! If youd like to take it a step further, homemade Swizz Cheese drives the point home, but in a pinch some sliced avocado works really well and thats how we did it in the 90s and we loved it. You can also just buy some vegan cheese, who am I to say. This recipe is originally from I Can Cook Vegan. Recipe Notes ~This is a prime example of marinating tempeh to have it suck up flavor. The acidic, salty, fatty marinade counteracts the bitterness of the tempeh and brings out its meaty notes. Searing in cast iron seals the deal. ~The Swizz Cheese is so easy! I dont know how I discovered this but truffle oil plus sauerkraut juice = a swissy flavor. If you cant procure truffle oil, it wont be as swissy but it would still be pretty good! Ingredients 1 1/­­2 cups sauerkraut (reserve liquid if making Swizz Cheese) For the Tempeh: 1 pound tempeh, cut into four equal pieces, then cut through the middle so that you have eight thin squares 1 medium beet, peeled, sliced as thin as you can get it For the Marinade: 1/­­2 cup vegetable broth 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/­­4 cup fresh lemon juice 2 tablespoons tamari Several sprinkles of fresh pepper For the Swizz Cheese: 1 1/­­2 cups unroasted cashews (if you don’t have a VitaMix blender then soak the cashews in water overnight or boil for 20 minutes and drain) 3/­­4 cup sauerkraut juice 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast 2 tablespoons mellow white miso 1 tablespoon black truffle oil 2 teaspoons onion powder 1 teaspoon salt 1/­­4 cup refined coconut oil, melted For the Dressing: 1/­­3 cup vegan mayo 2 tablespoons ketchup 1 tablespoon onion powder 1/­­4 cup finely chopped dill pickles To cook and serve: 2 tablespoons olive oil 8 slices large caraway rye bread Dill pickle slices for garnish (garnish with pickles on toothpicks) Directions Marinade the tempeh: Combine all the ingredients for the marinade in a large mixing bowl. Add the tempeh and beets and marinate for at least an hour, turning occasionally. If youre making the cheese: place all cheese ingredients in a high speed blender then blend away until completely smooth. Scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula to make sure you get everything. Chill until ready to use.  Make the dressing: Mix all the dressing ingredients in a mug. Set aside.  Now we are ready to rock! Preheat a cast iron pan over medium heat. Add oil to pan. Use a slotted spoon to transfer tempeh and beets out of marinade and into the pan, shaking off excess marinade. Place in a relatively single layer.  Cook for about 10 minutes, using a thin metal spatula to turn often. When beets are softened and tempeh is browned, its ready! Toast bread and spread dressing on all slices. Top with tempeh and beets. If using, pour on a few tablespoons of Swizz Cheese. Add sauerkraut. Close sandwich. Spike with dill pickled toothpicks and serve. 

Aloo Palak (Spinach with Potatoes)

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.

In my book,  German Chocolate Cookies would make a perfect snack year-round, but with that festive nut & chocolate combo they are an especially great gift during the holidays! If you love German Chocolate Cake these little chocolate cookies are the perfect treat to add to your baking list! They have that classic winning combination of chocolate, coconut, and pecan all piled up on top of soft, rich, and chocolatey oatmeal cookies with no added oil!

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.

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.

Beet Shepherd’s Pie with Balsamic, Lentils, and Mushrooms

February 10 2021 Golubka Kitchen 

Beet Shepherd’s Pie with Balsamic, Lentils, and Mushrooms This cozy vegan shepherd’s pie has some serious borscht vibes, thanks to the combination of beets, potatoes, and other deep, wintery flavors. A shepherd’s pie is a great thing to make on the weekend, since it’s a bit of a project, which will set you up for several hearty meals throughout the week. This version is packed with vegetables, lentils, mushrooms, and has a nice kick from the addition of balsamic vinegar. Hope you’ll give it a try sometime during this final stretch of winter! Beet Shepherds Pie with Balsamic, Lentils, and Mushrooms   Print Serves: 4-6 Ingredients 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for oiling the pan/­­baking dish 1 yellow onion, diced 1 medium carrot, sliced 1 celery rib, sliced sea salt 5 garlic cloves, minced 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary 1 tablespoon tomato paste 8 oz cremini mushrooms, sliced freshly ground black pepper 1 cup brown lentils, rinsed 1 lb beets, peeled and finely cubed 2 bay leaves (optional) 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 2 lbs Russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces ⅓ cup unsweetened dairy-free milk green onions or other fresh herbs, for garnishing (optional) Instructions Heat a large pot over medium heat and add enough oil to generously coat the bottom. Add the onion, carrot, and celery to the pot, along with a pinch of salt. Saute until soft, about 8-10 minutes. Add the garlic, rosemary, and tomato paste, stir to incorporate. Add the mushrooms, along with another pinch of salt and pepper to taste, saute for 8-10 minutes, until the mushrooms are browned. Add the lentils, beets, bay leaves if using, 4 cups of water, and more salt to taste. Bring to a simmer and simmer, covered, for 35-40 minutes, or until the beets and lentils are tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. If the mixture appears too soupy, leave the lid askew and simmer for a few more minutes, to help the liquid evaporate. Discard the bay leaves, taste for salt and adjust if needed. Turn off the heat and mix in the balsamic vinegar. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes in well salted water until tender, 15-20 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Add 2 tablespoons of oil, milk, and more salt and pepper to taste. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher until smooth. Preheat the oven to 400° F (200° C). Prepare a 2 quart baking dish by oiling it with the olive oil. Add the beet and lentil mixture to the baking dish. Top with dollops of the mashed potatoes and gently spread the potatoes over the beet mixture with the back of a spoon. Make a few swooshes in the potatoes with the spoon and drizzle with more olive oil. Put the baking dish on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, until everything is warmed through, and the potatoes are slightly golden on top. Let the shepherds pie sit for about 20 minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh herbs, if using, and serve warm. 3.5.3226 The post Beet Shepherd’s Pie with Balsamic, Lentils, and Mushrooms 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.

Big Hugs Chickn & Rice Soup

January 25 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Big Hugs Chickn & Rice Soup Serves 4-6 Call me an iconoclast but, but I prefer Chickn & Rice Soup to Chickn Noodle! Especially buttery jasmine rice. This soup has all the huggy ingredients: celery, dill, poultry seasoning with sage and thyme and, of course, garlic and onion. As it cooks your kitchen will fill up with the most nurturing aromas, like someone you love is cooking for you. And that someone, dear reader, is you. I used homemade Chickn Seitan, but you can use whatever vegan chicken you like. Or even thinly slice tofu or yuba. Just make sure to brown it nicely first. I also use some vegan butter here, for body and richness, but use all olive oil if you prefer. Its gonna be good! Recipe notes: ~ If the pot youre cooking in is wide enough, like a dutch oven, you should be able to brown the chickn in there before preparing the rest of the soup. Save yourself a dish, plus create little crispy bits that get swept up into the soup when you saute everything else. If youre using a stainless steel pot that is more tall than wide, its probably wiser to saute the chickn in a skillet and prepare the soup separately. Ingredients 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 cups chickn seitan, pulled into 1 to 2 inch pieces (8 oz) 2 tablespoons vegan butter (I used Miyokos) 1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced 2 cups carrots, in 1/­­2 inch chunks 2 ribs celery, thinly sliced 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning 1 teaspoon salt Fresh black pepper 1/­­2 cup white jasmine rice, rinsed 8 cups broth 1/­­4 cup fresh dill, chopped, plus extra for garnish Directions Preheat a 4 quart pot over medium heat. Saute chickn in olive oil with a pinch of salt until nicely browned. Remove from pot and set aside.  Saute onion in butter with a pinch of salt for about 5 minutes, until translucent. Add carrots and celery and cook for about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, about a minute, using a little extra butter if you like. Add poultry seasoning, salt and pepper and saute a minute more. Add rice and broth. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, bring down to a simmer, and let cook for about 15 more minutes, until rice is cooked and carrot is tender. Stir in the chickn and dill and taste for salt and pepper. This definitely tastes better the longer you let it sit, but it can be enjoyed right away, too. Garnish with extra dill and serve!

Everyday Pull-Apart Chick’n Seitan

January 18 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Everyday Pull-Apart Chick’n Seitan Makes 4 pounds This is the layery, flaky textured vegan chicken of your dinnertime dreams! I wanted something comparable to store-bought vegan chickn, but like, better? Its just the thing to simmer away on a Sunday then store and use throughout the week. The recipe is not difficult but it does require a few items, such as cheeseclotch and twine, which will only make you feel more cheffy than you already do. The cheesecloth also gives the outer layer a nice pin-prick texture that sears beautifully. The gist of the recipe is that the seitan dough is processed into a soft dough that is somehow clumpy yet totally holds together. Its then gathered pulled, twisted, bundled and simmered, creating a pull-apart texture that is reminiscent of the finest fakest meat. But it tastes so much better when it comes from your kitchen! The flavoring is subtle and versatile enough for everything from a South Asian stir-fry to an Italian parmesan. Theres just a touch of turmeric to lend luster and brighten up the color, pea protein gives it a good nice meatiness and texture. Would it work with something besides pea protein? I dont know! I didnt try it! But I really think the pea is key. For the simmering broth, use a diluted bullion. Just something lightly flavored to keep the flavors mellow. I’ll post more recipes for how to use it. It takes to marinades well and browns beautifully! Grilled, fried, shredded for soups, it’s so fantastically versatile and soaks up flavor like a champ. PS Thanks to Avocado & Ales, the inventor of Chickwheat, which is the shreddiest of shreddy seitan chickn! I used her method of food processing the seitan to give it a bit of that shreddy texture. If you are looking for realllllly shreddy chickn, check that one out. But Im sure you already have. This one is more chunky and pull apart. Like the title says.  Creating Perfect Simmered Seitan Bundles: A romance era novella ~ This recipe is not difficult. But often when people say something “isn’t difficult”, are they just talking you off the ledge? If it isnt difficult why would you have to even say that? Thus, in short, what I mean is that its not difficult IF you pay attention and read the directions, because every step counts. So read this in bed, the night before you make it, and then dream of perfect little seitan bundles. ~ Part 1: Cheesecloth. First of all, make sure you have cheesecloth and twine. Cut the cheesecloth into the proper sizes before beginning and set it aside. When wrapping, dont go too tight or it will make the chickn denser than intended. It will still be good! But this isnt a boustier. Leave some slack, because the seitan soaks in moisture and plumps up, leading to the layery, light shreds we are going for. If that sounds vague, hows this: make sure you can pull the cheesecloth about 1/­­2 an inch away from the seitan once its wrapped. So, snug and secure, with a little room to breath. ~ Part 2: Mind your broth temp. If the broth is too hot you can water log the seitan, but this is very easy to prevent. Before adding the seitan, bring the broth up to a low boil, then lower the heat so that its not boiling at all, just very hot. Then add the seitan bundles. When you add the seitan, the broth temperature will drop even more. Bring the heat up slightly. During this time, the seitan will be developing a skin which will protect it from becoming, as they say, seitan brains. Once it is on this low heat for about 20 minutes, you can raise the heat to a low boil. Now its really cooking! Cook this way for about 45 more minutes, with the lid ajar, using tongs to rotate the bundles every 15 minutes or so. ~Part 3: Cool it now. The cooling off stage is crucial, as if your seitan is heading from a hot spring to a spa at a ski resort. Turn the heat off and let the seitan cool in the broth. This can take an hour or so, but its worth it for perfectly cooked fake chicken. If you have a cool place to put it, thats great. An open porch? A safe fire escape? OK, now that you have attended the Ladys School For Seitan, you should be well prepared to strike out on your own. Have fun and remember: you were made for this! Ingredients For the Chick’n Seitan: 2 cups water 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar 1 1/­­2 teaspoons salt 2 teaspoons onion powder 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1/­­2 teaspoon white pepper 1/­­8 teaspoon turmeric 1/­­4 cup nutritional yeast flakes 1/­­2 cup pea protein flour 1 1/­­2 cups vital wheat gluten For the broth: 10 cups chickeny vegetable broth 8 bay leaves Directions Have ready 4 nine-inch double layered cheesecloth squares and twine. In a food processor fit with a metal blade, whiz together water, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, white pepper and turmeric. Add nutritional yeast and pea protein and process until smooth, about 30 seconds.  Now add the vital wheat gluten and pulse in. Once it is all incorporated, process on low for about 5 minutes. It will be very stretchy, stringy and pliable. Give the motor a break once in awhile if your processor cant handle it.  Divide the dough into 4 even-ish pieces. From this point, be careful not to overhandle the seitan because you want it to retain its texture, which will allow it to separate nicely once cooked.  Gently roll a glob of gluten into an 8 inch roll. Fold in half, give a twist and pull again so its about 6 inches long. This creates the layers. Wrap in cheesecloth, snugly but not tightly, it will expand. Tie with each end with twine. Proceed with the remaining pieces and let rest while you prepare the broth. In a large (8-quart) pot bring broth to a boil. Lower heat. Add the seitan bundles. Let stew very gently without boiling for about 15 minutes. When skin is set, place the lid ajar for steam to escape and low boil for about 45 more minutes.  Cool completely in broth. Pull apart and use how ever you want! It tastes best if browned in some olive oil first.

Tempeh Meatballs & Spaghetti

January 7 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Tempeh Meatballs & Spaghetti Serves 2 to 4 Photo By VK Rees So many of my best memories revolve around a big juicy meatball, and lots of slurpy, garlicky marinara. My grandmas dinner table with a big platter of her meatballs right in the center of it, always featuring a few burnt ones that everyone in the family tried to grab before anyone else could. My best friends mom, a beautiful Italian woman with jet black hair and catlike blue eyes, feeding me almost every night of the week. And later, when I went vegetarian, cooking tofu balls and spaghetti with my mom and sis. Even decades later, when I lived in a loft with no heat, every Sunday night my roommates and I would watch Sopranos and eat spaghetti and meatballs, made from some storebought soy sausage stuff.  Well, this recipe is none of those exactly, but its a mishmash of all those experiences. I love the texture of tempeh in meatballs, its succulent and satisfying. A few condiments and pantry spices give me the childhood flavors that I crave. Definitely double this recipe if you feel like it, and dont forget to burn a few…those are always the best loved.  The method of simmering tempeh here is one that is so useful when you want a more neutral flavor! Learn it, live it. This recipe is from Isa Does It. Ingredients For the meatballs: 16 ounces tempeh 1 cup water 1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 cloves garlic, minced 3 tablespoons ketchup 1 tablespoon dijon mustard 1/­­2 teaspoon dried oregano 1/­­2 teaspoon dried thyme 1/­­2 teaspoon salt Several dashes fresh black pepper 1/­­2 cup very finely chopped yellow onion 1 cup panko breadcrumbs Olive oil for pan frying For the rest: 8 oz spaghetti 4 cups marinara, storebought or homemade Red pepper flakes Fresh black pepper Directions Boil a pot of salted water for spaghetti.  Meanwhile, crumble tempeh in small pieces into a 2 quart pot. Submerge in a cup of water, a tablespoon soy sauce and one tablespoon olive oil. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower heat and simmer, with the lid slightly ajar so that steam can escape, for 15 minutes. Most of the water should be absorbed. If there is excess water, drain and place tempeh in a mixing bowl and place in the freezer to cool It should take 10 minutes or so, give it a stir after 5 minutes to make it cool evenly. In the meantime, prepare your onions. Once cool, add garlic, ketchup, mustard, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper then mix well. Mix in the onions. Now add the breadcrumbs and use your hands to mix until it holds together very well. If it seems loose, add extra breadcrumbs by the tablespoon until you can form very tight, compact balls. Scoop up about golfball sized amounts and roll between your hands to form the balls. Your water should be boiling at this point, so cook the spaghetti now. When its ready, drain and toss with marinara in the pot you boiled it in. Keep covered and hot until ready to eat. Preheat a large non-stick pan (preferably cast iron) over medium heat. Coat the pan with a thin layer of olive oil. Add meatballs one by one, rolling them in the pan to coat in oil. If your pan is not big enough to fit all of the balls comfortably, then do them in two batches. Pan fry for about 10 minutes, rolling them frequently, to cook evenly.  Serve spaghetti in big bowls, with three or four meatballs each. Top with extra red pepper flakes or fresh black pepper and slurp it up!

BBQ Tempeh Ribs

January 5 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

BBQ Tempeh Ribs Serves 4 Photo By VK Rees Smoky, sticky sweet finger licking ribs! But be sure to lick YOUR OWN fingers, weirdo. These are inspired by my fave vegan BBQ joint in Portland, OR, Homegrown Smoker. Im not saying theyre as good, but they get me there without the airfare. Serve with cornbread or mashed potatoes or mashed sweet potatoes or rice or coleslaw or potato salad or in a hero or all of the above. This recipe is originally from I Can Cook Vegan. Recipe Notes ~Often times, I prefer to steam tempeh before using because it removes bitterness and makes the tempeh more succulent. But you can skip that step here for a few reasons. First, I want the tempeh to be crisp and browned. Secondly, if you sear it on high enough heat, it does cook through and remove the bitterness. Youre left with nutty, meaty, toothsome bites. Use cast iron for best results! ~To make the tempeh look like one long line of ribs, turn the pieces carefully as you cook them so that they stay pretty much in the same order you cut them in. Does that make sense? OK, look at the pics for reference. Ingredients For the BBQ sauce: 2 tablespoons cornstarch 1 cup cold vegetable broth 1 1/­­4 cups ketchup 1/­­3 cup brown sugar 1/­­3 cup tamari or soy sauce 1/­­3 cup apple cider vinegar 2 teaspoons liquid smoke 1 1/­­2 tablespoons garlic powder 1 tablespoon onion powder 1/­­4 teaspoon cayenne For the tempeh: 2 8-oz packages of tempeh sliced into eighths widthwise 2 tablespoons olive oil Directions Make the sauce: In a small saucepot, use a fork to vigorously whisk the cornstarch into the vegetable broth until its mostly dissolved. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Place over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it comes to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat to a low simmer and let the sauce thicken for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Make the ribs: Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Drizzle in 1 tablespoon of oil and a pinch of salt. Fry tempeh on one side till browned, about 5 minutes. Drizzle the remaining oil over the tempeh and sprinkle with salt then flip. Brown that side for about 5 minutes.  Pour about 1/­­2 cup of barbeque sauce into the pan and flip to coat. Let it cook and caramelize for about 3 minutes.  Remove from pan and line the ribs up on a plate. Drizzle more warmed barbeque sauce all over them to serve.

I sliced the banana in 6 pieces the long way To make the batter, add all the dry ingredients together besan, rice flour, cornstarch, salt, cumin seeds, black pepper, mango powder, and sugar. Mix all the ingredients well. Add the water slowly to make a smooth batter. Consistency of pancake mix. I used about 1/­­2 cup of water. Now add the green chilies and cilantro, mix it well. Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat. The frying pan should have about 1 inch of oil. To check if the oil is ready, put one drop of batter in the oil. The batter should come up but not change color right away. Dip the apples and bananas slices into the batter one at a time, making sure it is covered by the batter completely. Then, slowly drop in the slices into the frying pan. Fry the pakoras in small batches, not overlapping. The pakoras will take about 3-4 minutes to cook. Turn them occasionally. Fry the pakoras until both sides are golden brown. If the oil is too hot, the pakoras will brown too fast and not get crispy. The crispy, delicious pakoras are now ready to serve. NotesThey taste delicious with tamarind sweet and sour chutney. I already have this chutney recipe on my blog.
