Green Chili Enchilada Soup

April 11 2021 Vegan Richa 

Green Chili Enchilada SoupThis one-pot Vegan Green Chile Enchilada Soup is vegan Mexican comfort food at its best! A hearty stew loaded with soy curls, corn and rice, then topped with all your favorite toppings for tons of flavor! This green chile enchilada soup recipe has everything you love about green enchiladas – the smoky heat of the green chiles, the Mexican spices, the creaminess and obviously the cheese. As this is a chicken-less enchilada soup, we add some soy curls in lieu of chicken as our protein. Otherwise, we rely on staple Mexican ingredients, such as rice, corn! I love the comforting creaminess the white beans add to this stew. Nutritional yeast adds the cheesy taste, but we also add some shredded cheese on top to finish this off. The secret to the creaminess of this vegan enchilada soup is a quick cashew cream which adds a nice richness to the soup and thickens it along with the rice. However, for those of you who are allergic, I listed a nut-free version in the tips section. I like finishing this Vegan Mexican soup off with some shredded cheese and some thinly sliced green chiles. Other great additions would be a fresh squeeze of lime, some sliced avocado, more vegan cheese shreds, and how about crushed tortilla chips? It will be hard to just have one bowl of this delicious vegan soup.

My husband, who enjoys paneer dishes in every form, asked me to make a paneer dish, which is different than what I have made before. It should not be creamy. So, I decided not to add cream or nuts. 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.

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.

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.

Methi Bajra Paratha (Millet Gluten Free and Vegan Bread)

Methi Bajra Paratha (Millet Gluten Free and Vegan Bread) (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Methi Bajra Paratha Parathas always have been a family-favorite treat. Lately I have been trying to make gluten-free breads. A combination of bajra and besan with methi parathas taste delicious. These spicy Methi Bajra Parathas have a biscuit texture, which makes it very enjoyable. They also pair well with gravy-based dishes like Mixed Dal, Aloo Tamatar or you can serve with plain yogurt. You can enjoy these as a proper meal, or even as a great on-the-go lunch! I also enjoy these parathas with just hot cup of chai. This recipe will serve 2, and make 4 Parathas. Course Breakfast Cuisine Indian Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 10 minutes Total Time 20 minutes Servings 2 people Ingredients 1/­­2 cup millet flour bajra atta 1/­­2 cup besan 1/­­2 tsp cumin seeds jeera 1/­­2 tsp salt 1 tsp chili flakes 1/­­4 tsp turmeric haldi 1/­­8 tsp asafetida hing 1 Tbsp sesame seeds til 1 Tbsp oil 1/­­4 cup fenugreek leaves option is using dry leaves 1/­­2 cup hot water use as needed Also Need4 tsp oil to cook the parathas InstructionsMix all the ingredients for paratha together, millet flour, besan. Cumin, salt, chili flakes, turmeric, asafetida, sesame seeds, oil, and fenugreek leaves. Notes: if you dont have fresh fenugreek leaves use dry methi known as Kasuri Methi. Make the dough using hot water, you will need about 1/­­2 cup of water. Dough should be firm and pliable. Notes: dough should be prepare just before making paratha. Dived the dough into 4 equal parts, oil your palm and roll them between your palms, to make them round petites. Heat the skillet on medium high heat. To test, sprinkle a couple of drops of water on the skillet. The water should sizzle right away. Roll the paratha in about 6 circle, roll them between two pieces of plastic that makes the rolling easy, I am using zip log bag. Place the methi bajra paratha over the skillet. When start to change color, flip it over. You will notice some golden-brown spots. After a few seconds, spread one teaspoon of oil on the aratha. Flip it again and lightly press the with a spatula. Flip again and press with the spatula making sure the paratha is golden-brown on both sides. Repeat same process for the remaining.

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.

The prep work is minimal – just remember to soak the rice before you add it to the Instant Pot to get the perfect “fluffiness”. The slight heat from the chipotle chili powder goes to well with this dish. I use a chipotle chili blend and also add some cumin and thyme to seal the deal – all spices that pair beautifully with the sweet pumpkin puree, FOR MORE VEGAN RICE DISHES CHECK OUT THESE RECIPES: - Turmeric Lemon Rice - Vegetable Carrot Fried Rice - Instant Pot Black Eyed Peas Rice Pulao - Masala Fried Rice with Turmeric Onion Raita - Peanut Sauce Fried Rice Which rice shall I use for making fried rice?

Two-Bean Nachos

June 16 2020 Robin Robertson's Global Vegan Kitchen 

Two-Bean Nachos In less than two months, The Plant Protein Revolution will be here!  I can’t wait for this book to come out as a response  to that perennial question “Where do you get your protein?” To give you a sneak peek, I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes from the book, Two-Bean Nachos. I love nachos because they are easy to make and fun to eat, not to mention delicious.  This recipe is all that and more — with 17 grams of protein per serving.  Make the cheesy sauce in advance and the nachos will come together in minutes. BONUS! The book is available now for pre-order and if you pre-order before August 11, 2020, my publisher will send you additional bonus recipes that you can start using right away! Just send your proof of purchase to the following e-mail address: plantproteinrev@quarto.com and theyll send you the bonus recipes. Now let’s dig into some nachos…. Two-Bean Nachos - 1 3/­­4 cups Easy Cheesy Sauce (recipe follows), kept warm - 1 (12-ounce [340 g]) bag whole-grain tortilla chips - 11/­­2 cups (355 g) cooked black beans, or 1 (15-ounce [425 g]) can, rinsed and drained - 11/­­2 cups (354 g) cooked dark red kidney beans, or 1 (15-ounce [425 g]) can, rinsed and drained - 1 large ripe tomato, diced - 1/­­2 cup (80 g) chopped red onion or scallions, white and green parts - 1/­­4 cup (60 ml) chopped pickled jalape?os - 1/­­4 cup (15 g) chopped fresh cilantro (optional) - 2 tablespoons (14 g) hulled hemp seeds - 1 ripe Hass avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced - 1 tablespoon (15 ml) fresh lime juice - Sea salt Prepare the sauce and keep it warm. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Spread the tortilla chips in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet and bake until the chips are crisp and warm, about 5 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven. Sprinkle the black beans evenly over the chips, followed by the red kidney beans, tomato, onion, jalape?os, cilantro, if using, and the hemp seeds. In a small bowl, toss the avocado with the lime juice and season with salt. Top the nachos with the avocado, then drizzle the warmed cheesy sauce over the nachos and serve immediately. This recipe is from The Plant Protein Revolution Cookbook by Robin Robertson (c) 2020, The Harvard Common Press.   Easy Cheesy Sauce Makes 1 3/­­4 cups (415 ml) This creamy golden sauce is rich and full of flavorful protein-rich goodness. I use it to drizzle over nachos and as a topping for baked potatoes, roasted vegetables, and enchiladas. -  - 11/­­4 cups (38 g) raw cashews, soaked in hot water for 30 minutes, then well-drained - 1/­­3 cup (21 g) nutritional yeast - 2 tablespoons (30 ml) jarred roasted red pepper, drained and blotted dry - 1 tablespoon (15 ml) rice vinegar - 1 tablespoon (15 ml) fresh lemon juice - 2 teaspoons white miso paste - 1 teaspoon sea salt - 1/­­2 teaspoon smoked paprika - 1/­­2 teaspoon onion powder - 1/­­2 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard - 1/­­4 teaspoon ground turmeric - 1 cup (235 ml) plain unsweetened plant milk, plus more as needed Combine all the ingredients in a high-speed blender. Process until the mixture is pureed and smooth, scraping down the sides, as needed. The sauce is now ready to use in recipes.  Use as is, or heat gently in a saucepan for a minute or two, stirring in a little more milk, if needed, for a thinner sauce.

Modern Love Mac & Shews

June 4 2020 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Modern Love Mac & Shews Modern Love Community Cookzine! Photo by Isa Chandra. Art by Jason Meyer. Click image to buy! It’s our world famous Mac & Shews! With a few caveats. Firstly, this recipe has basically been on the internet for a while now. Also, this isn’t the EXACT recipe Modern Love uses. It’s simplified for home cooks. But it certainly gets the job done when you’re away from Brooklyn or Omaha and need your fix. And finally, this isn’t a regular blog post but, then again, these aren’t regular blog times. Now I don’t want to make this recipe intro too long because I know that twitter HATES that. But! I need to tell you about Modern Love Community Cookzine. Well, what happened was, my restaurant — Modern Love Brooklyn — closed at the beginning of the pandemic. We thought we would be done for good. It was heartbreaking, but I have my health and my cats, so ok. I have a lot to be grateful for. Then, after a few weeks, my business partner and I realized we have this empty restaurant. It’s still not safe enough to open. But, we thought, let’s get people their jobs back in as safe a way as possible, AND help the community on top of that. Let’s cook amazing, free (or dirt cheap) meals. Modern Love Community Meals was born. On top of feeding hundreds of people a week, we also decided, hey, let’s do a Community Cookbook, that seems to be the thing! Easy. No prob. So we started this CookZINE (zine, because I am punk) and gathered together some of the city’s best chefs to give us tips, stories and recipes. So now, here we are, and I’m asking you to please buy it. BUT WHY SHOULD I BUY IT?!!? Because it will help fund our Community Meals project. And it will help get the restaurant back open. And so we kinda need you to! BUT I DON’T WANT TO HELP YOU! Ok we know no one is actually saying that. But in addition to helping us you get all those amazing tips, stories and recipes we mentioned! What a deal. And you can spend anywhere from $5 to $50 to support us. In turn, we will continue to support the community. And be able to open our doors safely for pickup. STILL NOT CONVINCED? OR READY TO BUY NOW? Look at some of the gorgeous art! This is by Erica Rosey, for a section called Menuhoods, where a chef creates menus for the neighborhood they’re from. This is Greenpoint. (Also featured: Crown Heights and Sheepshead Bay.) Greenpoint, by Erica Rose Levine OK. That’s the pitch. Thanks for listening! I hope you enjoy the recipe and the zine and we can’t wait to feed you again! OH PS, here is the link to buy one. Recipes Notes ~ If you don’t have a high speed blender, do not despair. Just soak the cashews for at least 2 hours (preferably overnight) and proceed with your regular old blender. You can also boil them for 20 minutes if you are super short on time and didn’t plan ahead. ~ We use home roasted red pepper at the restaurant, but you can totally use one from a jar. But if you wanna’ try it, homemade is way better. I won’t write the directions here, just google it. Ingredients 1 pound macaroni 1 cup whole unroasted cashews 1 cup vegetable broth 1 roasted red pepper, chopped 1/­­4 cup nutritional yeast flakes 1/­­4 teaspoon turmeric 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 1 tablespoon chickpea miso 1 tablespoon onion powder 1/­­4 teaspoon salt Directions 1 – Bring 6 quarts of salted water to a boil in a large pot for the macaroni. 2 – While the water is coming to a boil, make the sauce. Place all sauce ingredients in a high-speed blender (see recipe note if you don’t have one) and blend until completely smooth. This can take anywhere from a minute to 5 minutes depending on your blender. Scrape down the sides of the blender with a rubber spatula from time to time. 3 – Once water is boiling, cook pasta. Drain pasta in a large colander and add immediately back to the pot. It should still be piping hot and wet with pasta water. Do not rinse and do not wait. This part is important because you need the wet, hot pasta to get the sauce creamy and awesome and clinging to the pasta. 4 – Add the sauce to the pasta pot and use the rubber spatula to mix. Turn the heat on low and stir for about 2 minutes to get everything warmed through. Taste for salt and seasoning.

Earl Gray Chai Pancakes

January 27 2021 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Earl Gray Chai Pancakes Makes 6 big pancakes These pancakes have it all! Masala chai spices like ginger, cardamom and black pepper. And although Ive made chai spiced pancakes before, this time I thought of adding actual tea. Like wow, how brilliant, since “tea” is what chai is. You can use any black tea you like. I used Earl Gray, which came through with its citrus-y notes. Tea is a difficult flavor to infuse so I made a really super concentrated cuppa. Then I tossed a couple of star anise pods into the steeping tea as well, because that is one of those flavors that can be harder to incorporate into chai spiced recipes, what with those big old pods. So the steeping comes in real handy in multiple ways. It also helps to add the turmeric into the infusion to bloom bright and golden. The final results is a nicely spiced pancake and you can actually taste the tea, too. So add these to your pancake repertoire next time you are craving everything. Recipe notes: ~ 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 Boiling water 3 earl gray tea bags 2 star anise pods 1/­­2 teaspoon ground turmeric 1 1/­­2 cups all purpose flour 1 tablespoon baking powder 3/­­4 teaspoon ground ginger 1/­­2 teaspoon ground cardamom 1/­­4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/­­8 teaspoon ground black pepper 2 tablespoons sugar 1 teaspoon salt 3/­­4 cup unsweetened soy milk (or vegan milk of choice) 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar 3 tablespoons safflower oil (or any neutral tasting oil) 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract Refined coconut oil for cooking Directions Place 3 black tea bags in a large mug along with star anise pods. Pour water over tea and let steep for 20 minutes or so. It should be cool enough to use by then. Measure out one cup of liquid.  In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper, sugar and salt. Make a well in the center. Measure the milk into a measuring cup. Add the vinegar to the milk and let curdle a minute. Add the milk mixture, 1 cup of tea mixture, safflower oil and vanilla to the well. Stir just until incorporated and no large clumps of flour are left.  Preheat a non-stick pan over medium-low heat and let the batter rest for 10 minutes. Lightly coat the pan in coconut oil. Add 1/­­3 cup of batter for each pancake, and cook for about 4 minutes, until puffy, bubbly and matte. Flip the pancakes, adding a new coat of oil to the pan, and cook for another 2 or 3 minutes or so.  Transfer pancakes to a large plate covered with tin foil until ready to serve. To reheat, place pancakes on a baking sheet covered with tin foil in a 300 F degree oven for 5 minutes or so.

Palak Kadhi (Spinach Ki Kadhi)

Palak Kadhi (Spinach Ki Kadhi) (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Palak Kadhi, Spinach Ki Kadhi .wprm-recipe-rating .wprm-rating-star.wprm-rating-star-full svg * { fill: #343434; } Palak Kadhi is a tasty side dish. 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 2 cups of water slowly and mix well. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Test the heat by adding one cumin seed to the oil. If the cumin seeds crack right away, the oil is ready. 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. Let the kadhi cook for about 20-35 minutes, stir occasionally. If needed to adjust thickness, add more water. Kadhi should be a pourable consistency.

Vegan Glutenfree Vanilla Donuts Recipe

January 11 2021 Vegan Richa 

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

Vegan Gingerbread Banana Bread

December 27 2020 Vegan Richa 

Vegan Gingerbread Banana BreadThis Vegan Gingerbread Banana Bread recipe combines soft and moist Banana bread with Spiced gingerbread for the ultimate holiday treat. If you like gingerbread and bananas, you will love this vegan gingerbread banana bread! This banana bread recipe is perfect for the holidays and like any banana bread recipe, it is ideal for using up those brown bananas at the bottom of my freezer! If you are like me and have a treasure trove of frozen bananas or overripe bananas, this easy loaf cake recipe is for you. Make one big gingerbread banana loaf for yourself, and a couple more for gifting! I love this delicious loaf cake just slightly warm from the oven with a dollop of vegan butter – but I like it equally well a day or so later when it has had a chance to sit for a while. The flavors are out of this world and get ever more pronounced with time. That gingerbread spice, the banana and that touch of malty molasses. DELISH! Especially around Christmastime, I try to add molasses to as many recipes as I can. I used classic thick and dark cooking molasses, which is what you use in regular gingerbread for that magnificent warming molasses flavor. If you want a lighter flavor, use fancy molasses. It will make the loaf sweeter and lighter. MORE VEGAN BREAKFAST BAKES FROM THE BLOG - Marbled Banana Chocolate loaf - Banana Walnut Breakfast Loaf.

Oatmilk Coconut Eggnog

December 23 2020 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Oatmilk Coconut Eggnog Makes about 1 1/­­2 quarts Photo by James Walmsley I love this recipe because its thick without any thickeners, has lots of warming spice and the secret ingredient – apple cider vinegar – lends just the slightest tang that vegan nogs are sometimes missing. The turmeric is there to give that telltale eggy glow but also adds a little flavor. If you have a vanilla bean, definitely scrape it in here instead of the extract. And if you dont want to grate fresh nutmeg no prob, just use pre-ground. No one is judging. But I find it very satisfying to have that little dose of aromatherapy while grating a fresh nutmeg pod. Serve warm or cold, with about 2 ounces rum per each cup of nog if youre feeling boozy.  Ingredients 2 1/­­2 cups plain oatmilk 1/­­2 teaspoon ground turmeric 1/­­4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/­­4 teaspoon ground ginger 1 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg 1/­­2 cup sugar 2 14 oz cans coconut milk 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract Cinnamon sticks for garnish Directions Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper and spray lightly with cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, stir together peanut butter, maple syrup, and brown rice syrup, until smooth. A strong fork usually gets the job done, pretty well. Mix in the oil, vanilla, and salt. Mix in the oatmeal and crisp rice cereal. Start with the fork and then wet your hands and knead together well. Be very firm, the cereal should even crunch up a bit as youre kneading, and you should have a compact, slightly crumbly mixture. Add the peanuts and chocolate chips, and once again, knead until well distributed. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan, and press very firmly and as evenly as you can. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, the sides should be golden. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Remove from pan by pulling up the sides of the parchment. Now slice into 8 squares and serve! The best way to slice is to use a chefs knife, and press down in one firm motion. Do not saw the bars. Store bars in the fridge in individually plastic wrap and they should keep for at least 5 days.

Lately, I have been experimenting with some different recipes that are both healthy and delicious. I decided to try a recipe for "Millet Soup", which is a traditional warm soup in Rajasthan and Gujarat, and this soup is known Bajra Raab. Millet is gluten free and full of many nutrients. It is also super easy to make. It is amazing how a bowl of hot soup can be so filling and comforting, especially as the days get colder and darker. The main ingredients in this soup are millet flour, yogurt, and some spices to enhance the flavor. Enjoy! This recipe will serve 2.

Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a saucepan over low medium heat, oil should be moderately hot add mustard seed and cumin seeds as seeds crack add turmeric, curry leaves, ginger and cilantro and stir.

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.

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.

Red Lentil Dal (Instant Pot Recipe) (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Red Lentil Dal - Instant Pot Red Lentil Dal is a washed and split Masoor Dal. It is a rich, healthy lentil packed with protein and serves as a great side dish for a meal. You can also serve this as a comforting lentil soup. This is an easy dish to make. I am in my seventies and surprisingly I had never cooked or tasted this lentil. About a month back we had dinner with our friend, where she served this red lentil for dinner. We loved it. I asked her how she cooked this dal. It tasted so good! After finding out which lentil she had used, I was genuinely surprised. I questioned myself: why havent I been cooking it? I see this red lentil in an Indian grocery store all the time but never thought I should try it. My friend, like me, was surprised when she found out that this was my first time trying this dal. She suggested this lentil for Alex (my husband) and explained that it will be good for him since it is easy to digest. After that dinner, I have made this dal many times. It is an easy, simple recipe and it tastes delicious. I serve this dal with roti, rice, and one dry vegetable (e.g. aloo methi). I thought I should share this recipe because now this dal has become a staple dish for us. Recently I have been using an instant pot instead of a pressure-cooker. It takes the same time as the pressure cooker, but the advantage is that you dont have to watch over it when it starts steaming or when it is time to turn off. You can take care of other things in the meantime. This recipe will serve 3.

I am using instant pot to make dal. Use the instant pot on sauté mode and add oil. After oil is moderately hot add cumin seeds, and mustard seeds, after the seeds crack, add asafetida, whole red chili and ginger stir for about a minute. Now take out the ginger and red chilies from oil and keep aside. We will use this later for garnishing. Next add tomatoes, turmeric, red chili powder and salt. Cook and stir until tomatoes are soft. Add dal and water, stir, and close the instant pot. Change the instant pot setting to pressure cooker mode. Cook for 14 minutes. Dal is done it should be soft. If needed add more water, dal should not be very thick. Dal will thicken as it sits. Make it more liquid than you want it to be. Take dal out in serving bowl and garnish with ginger and red chilies. Serve hot. The post Red Lentil Dal (Instant Pot Recipe) appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

I decided to try a recipe for "Vegetable Biryani". I have been a little hesitant to do recipes using the Instant Pot. Maybe it's because I have been cooking for so long and I'm set in my habits, or maybe it's my age! I will say I have loved using my Instant Pot more as a pressure cooker and love using it for that purpose! I make lentils and legumes using the Instant Pot and think it's great. Once I use the Instant Pot more and get used to the timings, I think it will allow me to give more precise times for my recipes. Vegetable Biryani is a complete, satisfying, one-dish meal.
