Palak Kadhi (Spinach Ki Kadhi)

It is spinach cooked with yogurt and besan (gram flour) and mildly spiced. I think Kadhi is one of the most enjoyed dishes all over India. Kadhi is made in so many ways in different parts of the country. One main ingredient remains the same: besan. At my house, kadhi was made thick and with dumplings. In Gujarat, Kadhi is made very watery and taste like sweet and sour soup. I enjoy the dishes which are made using besan. Palak Kadhi has become a comfort side dish for us. It is easy to make and can be served with any meal. This recipe will serve 2. Course Side Dish Cuisine Indian Prep Time 5 minutes Cook Time 30 minutes Total Time 35 minutes Servings 2 people Ingredients2 Tbsp besan gram flour 1/­­2 cup yogurt curd or dahi 1 cup spinach leaves finely chopped, palak 2 Tbsp oil 1 whole red chilies sabut lal mirch 1/­­2 tsp cumin seeds jeera 1/­­4 tsp fenugreek seeds mathi dana 1/­­8 tsp asafetida hing 1/­­4 tsp turmeric haldi 1/­­4 tsp red chili powder lal mirch 1/­­2 tsp salt namak InstructionsMix besan, turmeric with yogurt until smooth, this should be lump free.

Add cumin seeds and asafetida. When the cumin seeds crack, turn off the heat and add fenugreek seeds, and whole red chili. Stir for a few seconds, add red chili powder. Add spinach and stir for a minute. Add the yogurt mixture and turn the heat to medium. Keep stirring until the kadhi comes to a boil. Add salt. Turn the heat to medium low.

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.

Raspberry Rugalech

December 23 2020 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Raspberry Rugalech Makes 4 dozen cookies Photo by Joshua Foo Probably the most iconic of the Jewish cookies, rugelach is the cookie that most has us pressing our faces up against the glass at the local bakery. If you didn’t go to Hebrew School, definitely google the pronunciation! They are rich and buttery, a little tangy from yogurt, nutty, sweet and cinnamony all at once. Theyre so fun to roll, and smell glorious while they bake. And, like, I know this make four dozen but you will be surprised to find that its actually just one serving. If you like, you can melt some chocolate chips and drizzle over cookies once cooled. Who doesnt love a chocolate raspberry combo? Recipes originally published in The Superfun Times Vegan Holiday Cookbook. Photo by Joshua Foo. Cookies rolled by Mississippi Vegan. Ingredients For the dough: 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/­­4 teaspoon salt 3/­­4 cup refined coconut oil, softened 3 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce 1 cup plain unsweetened vegan yogurt (I recommend coconut, cashew or soy) For the filling: 1/­­2 cup granulated sugar 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon 1 cup finely chopped walnuts 1/­­2 cup seedless raspberry jam, maybe a little more Directions In a very large mixing bowl, sift together the flour and salt, then add the coconut oil in small clumps. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut the oil into the flour until crumbs have formed and look like small peas. Add the applesauce and yogurt and mix to form a stiff dough. Divide the dough into four equal parts, then form 4 discs. Wrap each disk with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Now make the walnut cinnamon crumbs. In a food processor, pulse together the sugar, cinnamon, sugar and walnuts until it is in tiny crumbs. On a lightly floured surface with plenty of space, roll a disc disk into a 9-inch circle. Sprinkle a thin layer of raspberry jam over on the dough, leaving about 1/­­2 an inch of space at the edges. Now sprinkle on a layer of walnut cinnamon crumbs, again leaving space at the edges. Use a pizza cutter to cut each round into 12 wedges, like a pizza pie. Roll each triangle, from the bottom (large) sidebase up to the point, to form the rugelach. Place the rolled rugelach on the prepared baking sheet and place the sheet in the fridge while you continue to prepare each disc. When all the cookies are formed, let them chill for another 15 minutes in the fridge. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 350° F. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, until lightly browned and a little puffy, 18 to 22 minutes. The sugar should appear lightly caramelized and melty. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

We’ve got two variations on one cookie base: miso tahini cookies and chocolate peanut butter cookies, both topped with a decadent, coconut maple glaze. These are fun and easy to make, and if you want, you can get creative with topping the glaze with some beautiful ‘natural sprinkles’ like crushed pink peppercorns, dried rose petals, candied citrus peel, poppy seeds, etc. etc. Or leave them plain like we did, for a more minimal presentation. You can also sandwich them together for a cookie sandwich. Hope you’ll give them a try!

Easy Scalloped Potatoes (Vegan Hash Browns Casserole)

December 13 2020 FatFree Vegan Kitchen  

Easy Scalloped Potatoes (Vegan Hash Browns Casserole) These easy scalloped potatoes combine the creaminess of the classic side dish with the ease of frozen hash browns. You don’t even have to thaw them out! I thought I was finished writing about scalloped potatoes. I posted my first scalloped potatoes recipe in my second month of blogging, way back in 2006. Then ten years later I updated that recipe with a “cleaner” recipe that used chickpeas instead of cornstarch for thickening. Well, I hadn’t anticipated that Julie from the 100% Pure McDougall Facebook group would come up with a brilliant innovation on the original recipe. She skipped right past the slicing and boiling of two pounds of potatoes and simply poured the sauce over frozen hash browns. (...)

Baked Red Lentil & Vegetable Fritters with Maple Mustard Sauce

December 9 2020 Golubka Kitchen 

Baked Red Lentil & Vegetable Fritters with Maple Mustard Sauce I made this recipe on a whim when cooking dinner about a month ago and shared the process on our IG stories. It seemed to resonate, and we absolutely loved how it turned out. I’m finally getting around to sharing the recipe here. These fritters are inspired by the Bengali piyaju, as well as the Korean bindae-tteok, both fritters/­­panckes that are made with legumes in the batter. Soaked and blended red lentils act as a binder in these fritters. No chia or flax, or any other binders needed! We pack the red lentil batter with a bunch of veggies: grated carrot, onion, broccoli, garlic, as well some spices. We then bake the fritters instead of frying them. If I can avoid frying, I always do, to save time and avoid smoking up the kitchen. I think that these guys come out just as golden, crispy, and lacy-edged when baked at a high temperature, as they do when fried. We are just letting the oven do the frying :)  The final product is so savory and addictive, it’s impossible not to eat them all in one sitting. To serve with, there’s a really easy and quick maple mustard dipping sauce that really takes this whole recipe over the top. We hope that you’ll give these fritters a try! Baked Red Lentil & Vegetable Fritters with Maple Mustard Sauce   Print Serves: about 12-13 3½ fritters Ingredients for the fritters 1 medium carrot, grated 1 small yellow onion, peeled and grated florets from 2 very small or 1 medium-small head broccoli, grated ½ teaspoon salt, plus more for sprinkling the vegetables 1 cup red lentils, soaked in water overnight 1 garlic clove, roughly chopped ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika pinch chili flakes avocado oil or olive oil for the sauce ⅓ cup vegan mayonnaise 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard (or 1 tbsp Dijon and 1 tbsp grainy mustard) 2 tablespoons maple syrup Instructions to make the fritters Preheat the oven to 425° F (220° C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Put the grated carrot, onion, and broccoli in a colander, set over a bowl. Sprinkle with a generous pinch of salt and mix to coat. Let the vegetables sit and release water while preparing the batter. Drain and rinse the lentils. In a food processor, combine the lentils, ½ teaspoon salt, garlic, paprika, and chili flakes. Process until smooth. Transfer the batter to a medium bowl. Using your hands, squeeze as much excess water out of the vegetables as you can. Transfer the vegetables to the bowl with the batter and mix to combine. Start forming the fritters on the prepared baking sheet by putting dollops of the batter on the sheet and flattening them out with a spoon. Flatten out from the center to achieve the uneven fritter-like edges, and leave at least an inch between the fritters. Aim for fritters about 3½ in diameter and just under ¼ in thickness. Brush generously with oil and bake for 20 minutes. Carefully flip the fritters using a flat spatula, brush with more oil, and bake for 10 more minutes, until the undersides are golden, and the edges are crispy. You will likely need to bake the fritters in a few batches. to make the sauce In a small bowl, combine the mayo, mustard, and maple syrup. Mix until smooth. Serve as a dipping sauce for the fritters. Notes If your food processor has a grating attachment, its very convenient to use to grate the vegetables for these fritters. 3.5.3226 The post Baked Red Lentil & Vegetable Fritters with Maple Mustard Sauce appeared first on Golubka 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.

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.

Cast Iron Seitan Steak & Onions

December 30 2020 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Cast Iron Seitan Steak & Onions Serves 2 to 4 If youre from Brooklyn — and youre probably not even though you say you are — then you celebrate with steak. Everyone knows this from every movie. Cavernous steakhouses that date back to the last, last century lurking all over the city, tucked under bridges or beside a forgotten waterway, with their historical plaques, creaky wood floors, and signed Frank Sinatra portraits on the wall.  Well, 2020 is over and its time to celebrate Brooklyn style. Whether its a night of somber reflection or one of dancing and drinking (in your own home with only your household members and/­­or just your cat) this recipe works. Its a visceral activity unto itself, injected with whatever meaning you need it to have.  Basically, youll work a pliable ball of gluten until its goth red and gristle-y. Then you roll and pound it. Throw it into a hissing cast iron pan to sear. Smoke. Fire. Sizzles. Who needs fireworks? I was striving for something that could come together in one pot. I like baking seitan, but it does tend to dry things out and I wanted this to be juicy (pronounced JUSAY). Enter sear/­­braise. The steaks are cooked, removed from the pan then you create a rich au jus with onions, garlic and red wine. Some miso for that savory je ne sais quoi. And the seared steaks are placed back in to cook through. The end result is some of the best seitan I have ever had! Seared and smoky, firm but tender. And totally juicy (pronounced JUSAY). Plus it comes with its own sauce, perfect for slathering. Serve with mashed potatoes or crinkle cut fries. Or anything starchy and awesome. Happy New Year.  Recipes Notes ~ I tested this recipe using tamari, but something was missing. The Braggs Liquid Aminos really upped the flavor game here, adding nuance and just kind of this steak sauce flavor that really popped. I recommend it! Not only because you get a bottle with Patricia Braggs floral hat printed on it, but its a nice ingredient to have around for when youre like This rice needs to taste more hippy. ~ Beet powder is another fabulous ingredient. It honestly doesnt have much flavor in small quantities but adds so much color! You can try to use whole beets or whatever you are going to do but I didnt try that and any adjustments to liquid and dry ingredients in this recipe will change the texture dramatically. Ive found it in stores but Amazon is evil and the most reliable place to get it.  ~ If you dont have a cast iron pan, then….wait, why dont you? Get one. You need that hot sizzle when it hits the pan and nothing else will give you that.  ~ The broth you use will affect the outcome. Make sure it isnt too salty because the sauce reduces a lot. If youre using a concentrated bullion mixed with water, that is fine, but go light with it and taste as you go to see if it needs more. ~ I used Bobs Vital Wheat Gluten. If you use a different one, results may vary. Why? Protein content, probably. Not all VWG has the same amount. They should standardize this for our vegan future. ~ I really cant see one person eating a full steak like this, so I dont know, prove me wrong. Aesthetically I wanted it to be this big, but realistically, it serves four. Ingredients For the Steaks 1 1/­­4 cups vital wheat gluten 2 tablespoon nutritional yeast 2 tablespoons beet powder 2 teaspoons lemon pepper (salt free) 1 teaspoon onion powder 1/­­2 teaspoon mild mustard powder 2/­­3 cup water at room temp 3 tablespoons Braggs liquid aminos 2 tablespoons tomato paste 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar Everything else: Olive oil for cooking 1 medium onion, sliced 4 cloves garlic, minced 1/­­2 cup dry red wine 2 tablespoons red miso 3 bay leaves Fresh black pepper 1/­­4 teaspoon dried thyme 4 cups veggie broth Fresh parsley for garnish To serve: Mashed potatoes or crinkle cut fries. Instagram seems to go gaga over crinkle cut fries. Or any potatoes, really. A baked potato would be just fine! Also a green veggie. Nothing with too much flavor because this has a lot! Directions In a large mixing bowl, combine wheat gluten flour, nutritional yeast, lemon pepper, onion powder and mustard powder. Make a well in the center. In a small bowl, mix together water, aminos, tomato paste, olive oil and vinegar until the tomato paste is incorporated.  Add wet ingredients to the well and mix until a lumpy ball forms. It will appear a bit dry. Now, use your hands (with gloves if you have them) to knead the mixture until all ingredients are incorporated and there are no dry spots. If its very cold in the kitchen, you may have a harder time kneading. Moisten your hands with warm water and keep going, it should take about 3 minutes and appear very stretchy.  Divide the ball in half with a knife. Again, if its cold, the seitan might spring back more so this process will take a big longer. On a large cutting board, flatten the dough into a kidney shape that is roughly 3/­­4 inch thick and 8 inches in length. Use a rolling pin to roll, flatten and form. Let the first one rest while you do the second one.  Let both doughs rest about 10 minutes, for the gluten to relax a bit, then repeat the rolling process. Again, its more resistant if your kitchen is very cold so you might need to let it rest one more time.  As the steaks rest the surfaces will get a little smoother, which if what you want for the sear and appearance.  Preheat the cast iron grill over medium high. It should be very hot and water should immediately evaporate. This is important because you want the steak to hiss immediately so that is sears and does not stick.  Pour in a thin layer of olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the steaks and sear until dark brown, but not burnt, about a minute and a half per side. Use a thin metal spatula to flip steaks. Once they are seared, lower the heat to medium and let them cook until somewhat firm, about 10 more minutes, flipping and pressing down on them with the spatula.  Now we are going to remove the steaks and cook the sauce in that same pan. Place steaks on a plate.  Turn heat up to medium high. Drizzle about 2 tablespoons of olive oil into the pan. Add onions and a small pinch of salt and sear the onions for about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and a little more oil if needed and cook for about 2 more minutes, stirring often.   Add the wine and stir to deglaze and reduce, about 3 minutes. Mix in the miso to dissolve. Add bay leaves, a healthy dose of fresh black pepper (1/­­2 teaspoon or so), thyme and veggie broth. Let the broth warm, reduce heat to medium. Once warm, return the steaks to the brothy pan and submerge, spooning broth and onions over. Cover the pan and let cook for about 30 minutes. The broth should be simmering this whole time, but not boiling too rapidly.  OK were almost done! Remove the cover and flip the steaks. Turn the heat up and let sauce reduce for about 15 minutes uncovered. The broth will get really boily and active. Spoon sauce over the steaks while they cook. The steaks should no longer appear submerged and the sauce should be thickened a bit and really flavorful. Taste for salt.  Let sit for 10 minutes or so before serving. Remove bay leaves and garnish with parsley.

Slow Cooker Lasagna

December 22 2020 Robin Robertson's Global Vegan Kitchen 

Slow Cooker Lasagna The slow cooker is my go-to cooking method for lasagna.  Because it’s made with dried lasagna noodles (no need to pre-boil), assembly is a cinch. Plus, you can assemble it well in advance and refrigerate until needed.  Then, just set it and forget it! I’m posting this easy version just in time for the holidays.  It’s a great idea for Christmas dinner because you can relax and enjoy the day while it cooks, without worrying about it burning or spilling over in the oven. For another version, with more vegetables, try the Lasagna Primavera recipe in The Plant-Based Slow Cooker.  But if you want a more basic lasagna, this one’s for you.  You can leave out the spinach if you prefer, but I like the added greens.  (Plus red and green is so Christmas-y!)You can use your own homemade tomato sauce or storebought marinara sauce in a jar (you may need to use a jar and a half to make it sauce enough). Lasagna in a Slow Cooker For best results, use a large oval slow cooker. You may need to break the noodles to conform them to the shape of the slow cooker. To make gluten-free, use gluten-free lasagna noodles. I use regular dry lasagna noodles - no need to pre-boil. The added water is absorbed by the dry noodles and softens them as it cooks. SERVES 6 SLOW COOKER SIZE: 5- TO 6-QUART COOK TIME: 4 TO 5 HOURS GLUTEN-FREE OPTION   12 ounces soft tofu, drained 1 pound firm tofu, drained 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry 1?3 cup nutritional yeast 1 teaspoon onion powder 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon dried basil 1 teaspoon dried oregano 1 teaspoon sea salt 1/­­2 teaspoon ground black pepper 4 to 5 cups of your favorite tomato sauce for pasta (or a large jar of marinara sauce) 1/­­2 cup water 1/­­3 cup dry red wine (optional) 1 package vegan mozzarella shreds (such as Violife or Daiya) 8 ounces uncooked lasagna noodles (about 9 noodles)   - Crumble all of the tofu into a large bowl. Add the spinach, nutritional yeast, onion powder, garlic powder, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Mix well, then taste to make sure the mixture has enough salt and pepper. - Spread a layer of marinara sauce into the bottom of the slow cooker. Stir in the water and wine (if using). (The extra liquid will be absorbed by the dried noodles as they cook). Arrange a layer of the noodles over the sauce, breaking pieces to fit, as needed. - Top the noodles with about one-third of the tofu mixture, followed by a sprinkling of the mozzarella, and another layer of noodles. Spread a layer of marinara sauce over the noodles. Repeat the layering two more times, ending with a layer of marinara sauce topped with the remaining mozzarella. Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on High for 4 hours or until the noodles are tender. - Remove the lid, turn off the cooker, and let the lasagna stand for about 15 minutes before serving.   The post Slow Cooker Lasagna appeared first on Robin Robertson.

Chai Spice Snickerdoodles

December 20 2020 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Chai Spice Snickerdoodles Makes 2 dozen cookies Photo by VK Rees These are an enticing spin on classic cinnamon snickerdoodles, livened up with heavenly Masala chai spices: ginger, cardamom and a hint of cloves. Of course cookies are always fun to eat, but the crunchy, sugary tops on these make them even more so. They dont contain any actual tea, but brew a milky cuppa and prepare to dunk.  There are from Isa Does It. Buy that book, it’s great and the author is very beautiful. Ingredients For the topping: 1/­­4 cup granulated sugar 1/­­4 teaspoon ground ginger 3/­­4 teaspoon ground cardamom 1/­­4 teaspoon ground cinnamon Scant 1/­­8 teaspoon ground cloves For the cookies: 1/­­2 cup canola oil 1 cup granulated sugar 1/­­4 cup pure maple syrup 3 tablespoons unsweetened plain vegan milk 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/­­4 teaspoon salt 1/­­2 teaspoon cinnamon Directions Preheat oven to 350 F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Mix the topping ingredients together on a dinner plate. Set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, use a fork to vigorously mix together oil, sugar, syrup, and milk. Mix for at least a minute, until it resembles applesauce. Then mix in vanilla. Sift in remaining ingredients, stirring as you add them. Once all ingredients are added mix until youve got a pliable dough. Get in there with moist gloved hands to mix, its the easiest way to get the dough to come together. Roll dough into walnut sized balls. Pat into the sugar topping to flatten into roughly 2 inch discs. Transfer to baking sheet, sugar side up, at least 2 inches apart (they do spread a little). This should be easy as the the bottom of the cookies should just stick to your fingers so you can just flip them over onto the baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, they should be a bit browned on the bottoms. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Chocolate Fudge Candy Cane Cookies

December 16 2020 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Chocolate Fudge Candy Cane Cookies Makes 3 Dozen Cookies Photo by VK Rees These cookies scream CHRISTMAS so loud that you might have to tell them to shut up! Chocolate and melty minty chocolate with crushed candy canes. They are going to be the best thing that happens to anyone this holiday season, even if they get that Cabbage Patch Kid theyve been so desperately wanting. You don’t have to find peppermint chocolate for these, chocolate chips or regular dark chocolate bars will work, too.  To crush candy canes, place them in a plastic zip lock and pound on them with something heavy (like a rolling pin). Ingredients 1/­­2 cup refined coconut oil, room temp 1 1/­­4 cup sugar 1/­­2 cup unsweetened applesauce, room temp 1/­­4 cup plain unsweetened plant milk, room temp 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 2/­­3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted if clumpy 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/­­2 teaspoon salt 2 3 oz peppermint chocolate bars, chopped up (6 oz total) 4 crushed up candy canes Directions Preheat the oven to 350 degrees In a large bowl, cream together the oil and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the applesauce and milk and mix gently, it might make the oil clump and firm up a bit but thats ok. Mix in the vanilla. Add one cup of the flour, all of the cocoa powder, the baking soda and salt and mix well. Mix in the chocolate peppermint chunks and then add the final cup of flour and mix until it firms up. You might need to use gloved hands to get it fully incorporated.  Lightly grease baking sheets. Place a dozen on a baking sheet in 1 1/­­2 tablespoon scoops. Flatten slightly. Place a pinch of crushed candy cane in the center of each and press gently into the surface.  Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

Porcini Ramen With Runny Cashew Egg

December 15 2020 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Porcini Ramen With Runny Cashew Egg Serves 4 to 6 I love a creamy ramen. And yeah, I get little a jealous when I see a runny egg in a bowful of noodles, getting everything all luscious. Like, what an easy way to add creaminess and flavor. But vegans do it better. This cashew sauce is eggy and creamy, so easy and impossible to mess up. It really does hit the spot. It’s poured over a ramen made incredibly beefy with porcini mushrooms and a homemade broth. This recipe is semi-epic, but you can certainly use the runny cashew egg idea on a simpler ramen of your choosing.  So heres whats going on: Youll be making a rich, spicy broth from dried porcini mushrooms, miso and peppers. When the broth is strained, you grab all those rehydrated porcinis and cut them into meaty pieces. Youll be freezing tofu, toasting garlic, sauteeing veggies and blanching scallions. Like what, are you auditioning for Top Chef or something? Yes. That is exactly what you are doing. Ok better stop reading and start cooking. Recipes Notes ~Make the broth a night or two in advance so that it has plenty of time to cool. That way when you get to the actual ramen making, its really only 3 minutes. Or like 45. But still. Just make the broth on a night where youre making a different dinner and have it cook away, hands free. The kombu gives the broth a sealike umami quality that makes it more of a traditional Japanese dashi, but the broth is yummy with or without it (But yeah, better with it). ~About that tofu: extra firm tofu is frozen then thawed, then pressed. This changes the texture and makes it even chewier, and once thawed it is so easy to press all the water out. It is a whole experience! If you dont do that part, not a big deal, but I do recommend it. Otherwise, just press the tofu and proceed with the recipe. Frozen tofu takes a day to freeze and could take two whole days to thaw. So plan for it! Just let it thaw in the fridge. If it doesnt thaw completely, you wont get the correct, chewy effect so dont try to use tofu that is at all still icy.  ~For the peppers, I used serrano because its what I had. Thai chilis would be great, too. Jalapenos in a pinch. Habanero if you want a lot of heat. But no need to cut them, just poke about 5 little slits in them with a steak knife. This releases some heat, but not too much, and it makes it so you dont have to worry about handling spicy peppers too much. You can also just use some dried peppers or even sriracha.  ~To make curly scallions, thinly slice the dark green parts of the scallion, that will go in the recipe to be sauteed. For the remaining light green and white parts, fill a bowl with ice water. Thinly slice the scallion lengthwise and submerge in ice. They will curl up and get cute! Ingredients For the Porcini Broth 3 quarts water 6 cloves garlic, smashed 1 piece kombu (optional) 1 inch ginger cut into 3 or 4 pieces (dont peel) 1 oz dried porcini 2 serrano peppers, poked (see notes) 3 tablespoons red miso For the Runny Cashew Egg 1 cup unroasted cashews, soaked overnight or boiled for 20 minutes (skip this step if you have a highspeed blender) 3/­­4 cup water 1 teaspoon kala namak 1/­­8 teaspoon turmeric For the Ramen 16 oz ramen noodles 3 to 4 tablespoons canola oil, divided 1/­­4 cup thinly sliced garlic 14 oz extra firm tofu (see recipe note) pressed and cut into small cubes Dark green scallion, thinly sliced (see recipe note) 6 baby bok choy, white parts sliced off 2 tablespoons mirin 2 tablespoons tamari For garnish: Light green and white parts of scallion, curled (see recipe note) Spicy sesame oil Thinly sliced purple cabbage Sriracha Directions Make the broth: Add all ingredients, except for miso, to a large pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat to simmer for about 30 minutes uncovered, until its reduced to about 3/­­4. Remove from heat. Stir in miso. Let broth cool until its easy to handle without burning yourself.  Once cool, strain broth in cheesecloth into a large mixing bowl, squeezing as tight as you can to get as much broth as possible. Open up the cheesecloth and pick out the mushrooms to use. Compost everything else. If you dont have cheesecloth, no prob. Use a mesh strainer and just push the broth out with your regular old hands. Make the Runny Cashew Egg: Simply blend everything until completely smooth, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to make sure you get everything. This takes about a minute and a half in a highspeed blender but could take 5 minutes in a normal blender. Now prepare the ramen: Prepare the noodles in a separate pot according to package directions. Be careful not to overcook.  Preheat a wok or very wide pot over low heat and use 2 tablespoons of oil to toast the garlic until nice and golden. Be very careful not to burn, it should only take 2 minutes or so. Have a plate ready, and use a thin, slotted spatula to transfer the toasted garlic to a plate, leaving as much oil in the pan as you can.  Now turn the heat up, drizzle in a tablespoon or so of oil and saute the tofu cubes until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Cut reserved porcinis into bite sized pieces. Add to wok and aute an additional 5 to 7 minutes, drizzling in extra oil if needed. Add in green scallions and the white part of the bok choy. Saute 2 minutes. Add mirin and stir for another minute.  Measure broth and make sure it comes to 8 cups. Add to the wok and heat through. If you need to add a little water thats fine. Bring to a boil. Add the green part of the bok choy to wilt. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of tamari and taste for salt.  Build bowls: Portion noodles into big bowls. Add all the content of the ramen in broth. Spoon about 1/­­4 cup eggy sauce in one motion (in other words, dont drizzle it, just pour slowly over one section). Garnish with toasted garlic, sliced cabbage, spicy sesame oil, sriracha and the remaining scallions. 

Vegan Stuffed Shells with Butternut Squash Alfredo & Tofu Ricotta

December 10 2020 Vegan Richa 

Vegan Stuffed Shells with Butternut Squash Alfredo & Tofu RicottaVegan Stuffed Shells with Butternut Squash Alfredo is the best comfort food casserole to feed a big crowd! Filled with spinach and creamy tofu “ricotta,” this stuffed shells recipe is an all-time family favorite. Use Pumpkin or other winter squash. Coming at you with a classic Italian comfort food classic with a seasonal twist! Vegan Stuffed Shells with Butternut Squash! These vegan butternut squash stuffed shells are bursting with creamy dairy-free tofu ricotta and spinach and baked in a velvety smooth and cheesy butternut squash alfredo sauce. Perfect for holiday gatherings, family dinners, date night…really any occasion that begs for some serious vegan comfort food! Let’s talk about the tofu ricotta. I’m constantly blown away by the wonders of tofu. If you are skeptical whether this is not gonna end up being all weird and tasteless – never fear! The tofu combined with nutritional yeast, almond flour, Italian seasonings, lemon and tofu makes for the perfect ricotta substitute. A bit tangy, a bit cheesy but very mild in taste. Some spinach in it makes the filling incredibly delicious. And less or more spinach to preference. The butternut alfredo is adapted from my creamy butternut carbonara. That sauce is so delicious and works amazingly here. Use pumpkin or other winter squash if you like! Stuffed Shells usually end up taking long prep times because you pre-cook the pasta and the sauce. In this recipe I am using uncooked pasta! that gets cooked with the sauce while baking just like my baked rigatoni recipe. No dealing with large pots of hot water! By the way, this stuffed shells recipe would also work for making cannelloni – simply stuff the cannelloni pasta with the ricotta filling as you would for the shells and bake in the alfredo sauce. Baking time might vary slightly.
