Pineapple Kulfi (Ice Cream)

July 21 2019 Manjula's kitchen 

Pineapple Kulfi (Ice Cream) (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Pineapple Kulfi (Ice Cream) Kulfi, a popular summer dessert, is an Indian ice cream. Adding Pineapple here is a delicious twist to traditional kulfi. Pineapple kulfi simply melts in your mouth with its creamy texture and small chunks of pineapple. Pineapple Kulfi is delicious and easy to make. This is my friend Raj’s recipe and for this recipe we dont need an ice cream maker. I served this to my friends and they were surprised to know this was homemade and they all enjoyed it thoroughly. Course Dessert Cuisine Indian Keyword Ananas Kulfi, Candance Milk, Creamy, Dessert, Gluten Free, Homemade, Ice Cream, Party Food, Street Food, Summer Treat Servings 8 people Ingredients14 oz can of condensed milk sweetened 1 1/­­2 cup cream 1 1/­­2 cup milk 1/­­2 tsp agar-agar 8 oz can pineapple crushed, unsweetened US Customary – Metric InstructionsDrain the syrup from pineapple. Do not squeeze and keep aside. Keep it in freeze till we are ready to use. In a heavy saucepan add condense milk, cream and milk, mix them well. Bring the milk mix to boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. When milk hot but not boiling take out 1/­­4 cup of milk in a bowl and add agar-agar, mix it well making sure there are no lumps. Adding agar-agar, you will avoid the water crystal and kulfi will have smooth texture. Add the agar-agar mix to milk. Keep stirring till milk comes to boil, making sure agar- agar has mixed well and no lumps. Turn off the heat. Transfer the milk to glass bowl and freeze it for 3-4 hours, ice cream should be half the way freeze mix it in blender on highspeed for about 30 seconds. Take them out in a bowl add the pineapple chunks and mix it the well. You can freeze the Kulfi in a glass bowl and cover it. You can also freeze in small containers, kulfi molds, or popsicle molds. I am using 4-1/­­2 oz cups. Freeze them, how long it will take depends on the size of containers or mold you are using. NotesDo not use, more than recommended amount of agar-agar, it will change the texture of Kulfi and will make it firm. Fresh pineapple does not work well for this recipe.

Summer Squash Caviar

July 18 2019 Golubka Kitchen 

Summer Squash Caviar Summer Squash Caviar is a lovely Russian vegetable side that offers the perfect way to utilize all the summer squash and zucchini that is so abundant at this point in the summer. I’ve been overwhelmed with the beauty and variety every time I’ve made it to the farmers market lately: regular zucchini, white or yellow zucchini, yellow summer squash, two-tone zephyr squash, pattypan, etc. etc. Most of the time, I like to slice them thin and simply sauté in olive oil with salt and pepper. But I also tend to buy way more squash than I need, since they’re all so pretty and I convince myself that I have to try every kind, and this ‘caviar’ is the perfect recipe for those situations. To us, the flavor of summer squash caviar is extremely nostalgic. Growing up in the Soviet Union and Russia, it was a spread that you could without fail expect to find jarred at the store, and you could always count on the flavor to be consistently delicious. Some people made it at home, and the home recipes usually vary a bit from family to family. Generally, it involves slowly stewing summer squash/­­zucchini, tomatoes, onions, carrot, and garlic in a pan, until all the vegetables melt together, caramelize, and develop an amazing savoriness and depth of flavor. The result is delicious warm, but even better cold. It’s mostly enjoyed spread on top of bread (or sometimes bread gets dipped in it), since something magical happens when the juices of the caramelized vegetables get sopped up by a piece of bread. Most modern recipes for summer squash caviar involve a blender, but we’ve found that it’s not really needed here. Once the vegetables stew for a while, they’re soft enough to gently mash with a potato masher. And even though the store-bought summer squash caviar of our childhoods was quite smooth, we really enjoy leaving the homemade version slightly chunky. This makes the whole recipe a one-pan affair, which is always a bonus. We hope you’ll give it a go! Summer Squash Caviar   Print Serves: 2-3 cups Ingredients 2 medium tomatoes 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 yellow onion - chopped 1 medium carrot - peeled and grated sea salt freshly ground black pepper 2 cloves garlic - minced pinch of red pepper flakes 1 teaspoon tomato paste 2.2 lbs (about 3 large) summer squash and/­­or zucchini - finely cubed 1 teaspoon coconut sugar or other sugar of choice Instructions Place the tomatoes in a medium pot of boiling water for about 30 seconds, this will make it easy to remove their skins. Remove the tomatoes from the pot, let cool a little, peel off the skins and discard. Slice the tomatoes in half, scoop out all of the seeds and discard them. Finely cube the tomatoes. Warm the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot, a pinch of salt and black pepper, and sauté for 7-10 minutes, until soft. Mix in the garlic and red pepper flakes. Turn the heat down to a medium low, cover the pan, and let the vegetables stew slowly for 10 minutes, stirring periodically. Mix in the chopped tomatoes and tomato paste, cover, and let stew for another 10 minutes. Add the summer squash/­­zucchini and another pinch of salt, cover, and let stew for 30 minutes, mixing periodically. The squash should release enough water, but if the pan gets too dry, add a small splash of water to get things going. Mash the vegetables with a potato masher right in the pan, until mostly smooth with some chunks throughout. Mix in the sugar. Cover and let stew for another 10 minutes. Remove the lid, turn the heat up to medium, and let any remaining water cook off, stirring periodically. This should take 10-20 minutes. Taste for salt and adjust if needed. Let cool, transfer the caviar to an air-tight container and keep refrigerated. 3.5.3226 The post Summer Squash Caviar appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

July 7 2019 Manjula's kitchen 

Sattu Paratha (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Sattu Paratha Sattu Paratha, Sattu Ka Paratha is made with spicy sattu filling, sattu is roasted chana flour. This is a popular paratha in state of Bihar. Sattu Paratha is a great breakfast treat and a good lunch box option. For Dough - 1 cup whole wheat flour (roti ka atta) - 1 tbsp oil -  1/­­2 tsp salt -  1/­­3 cup water to make dough (use as needed) Filling - 1 1/­­2 cup sattu, dailya, roasted chana flour - 2 tbsp oil - 1 1/­­4 tsp salt -  1/­­2 tsp cumin seeds (jeera) - 1/­­8 tsp asafetida (hing) - 1/­­8 tsp nigella seeds (kalonji) -  1/­­2 tsp mango powder (amchoor) -  1/­­4 tsp red chili powder - 1 tbsp green chili finely chopped -  1/­­3 cup water to make crumbly dough (use as needed) Also Need - 2 tbsp whole wheat flour (to roll the paratha) - 2 tbsp oil (to cook the paratha) Making Dough -  Mix flour, salt, and oil add water as needed to make a soft dough. Knead dough for about two minutes on a lightly greased surface to make the dough soft, smooth and pliable. Cover the dough and let the dough rest for at least ten minutes. Filling -  Mix all the filling ingredients together, sattu, salt, asafetida, cumin seeds, kalonji, mango powder and green chili, well. Add water as needed to bind all the ingredients together. Use just enough water, it should hold everything together. Making Paratha -  Divide the dough and filling into six equal parts and form into balls. Filling balls will be little bigger than dough. -  Roll dough into a 3 circle. Place a filling in the center. Pull the edges of the dough to wrap it around the sattu filling. Repeat to make all six balls. Let the filled balls settle three to four minutes. -  Meanwhile heat a heavy skillet on medium high heat until moderately hot. To test, sprinkle water on the skillet. If the water sizzles right away, the skillet is ready. -  Press the filled ball lightly on dry whole wheat flour from both sides. Using a rolling pin, roll the balls lightly to make six-inch circles, keeping the sealed side up. If the dough sticks to the rolling pin or rolling surface, lightly dust the parathas with dry flour. -  Place the paratha on the skillet. When the paratha starts to change color and begins to puff up, flip it over. You will notice some golden-brown spots. -  After a few seconds, drizzle one teaspoon of oil over the paratha. Flip the paratha again and lightly press the puffed areas with a spatula. -  Flip again and press with a spatula making sure the paratha is golden-brown from both sides. Repeat for the remaining parathas. Paratha are best served hot and crispy. Parathas can be kept at room temperature for up to two days wrapped in aluminum foil or in a covered container.  For later use, parathas can be refrigerated three to four days or frozen for up to a month. Re-heat using a skillet or oven. Serving Suggestions Parathas can be served with Plain Yogurt, Mango pickle, or with Aloo Tamatar ki Sabji , (Potatoes with spicy tomato gravy) a classic combination. What is Sattu The difference between  besan and sattu because they both look about the same. The difference being that whereas besan is the flour of raw gram, and sattu is the flour of the roasted gram. Roasting the besan it is not same as the flour of roasted chana. Sattu is also high in protein. The post Sattu Paratha appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

Meal Plan Mini: Creamy Black Bean Bowls, Cauliflower Tacos, Raspberry Brownies

June 19 2019 Golubka Kitchen 

Meal Plan Mini: Creamy Black Bean Bowls, Cauliflower Tacos, Raspberry Brownies So happy to come out with another mini meal plan! This series is one of my absolute favorite things to work on. It definitely takes a lot of planning and energy, but making interconnected recipes that flow into each other is endlessly inspiring and satisfying. This kind of work reminds me that home cooking doesn’t need to be complicated to be good, that leftovers are a true gift, and that food waste is not a necessary part of life (though it’s so hard to avoid!). This mini is even more fun than usual, since it includes a wholesome treat recipe among the savory ones. The whole thing is centered around black beans – a magical ingredient that will make its way into tacos, bowls, and brownies. As usual, we walk you through some simple prep steps and provide a shopping list for all the ingredients. If you enjoy this mini, check out this more wintery black bean meal plan we did a few months ago, as well as all our meal plans. Let’s get started :) Menu - Creamy Black Bean Bowls - Refried Black Bean and Cauliflower Tacos - Black Bean Raspberry Brownie Bites *all recipes are vegan and gluten-free, see the recipes for serving sizes Shopping List (Print) Bring this list with you when you go food shopping, its got all the ingredients youll need for the recipes in this meal plan mini. All the items are separated by category, to make the shopping easier and more efficient. Take the time to look over this list beforehand and cross out any items you already have. The hope here is that you own some of the pantry staples, spices, and maybe even some of the produce required, which will help minimize the list. Add whatever other ingredients you’ll need for the week here, if doing shopping for the whole week. Produce - 1 1/­­2 yellow onions - 1 medium red onion - 1 head of garlic (7 cloves) - 2 jalapeno peppers - 2 limes - 1 very large or 2 small heads of cauliflower - pint of cherry tomatoes - about 4 avocados - about 6 oz fresh or frozen raspberries - 1 bunch cilantro - 1 bunch scallions Bulk and Spices - 3 cups dry black beans - 2 cups rice of choice or quinoa - 1 cup untoasted cashews - 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds - black pepper - smoked paprika - chili powder - cumin seeds or ground cumin - bay leaves Staples - sea salt - olive oil or other cooking oil of choice - coconut oil - brown rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar - tahini or other nut butter - vanilla extract - cocoa powder - coconut sugar - baking powder - hot sauce (optional) Other - corn tortillas or other tortillas of choice Basic Prep 1) Cook the beans and make the Creamy Black Beans Pot of Black Beans + Creamy Black Beans   Print inspired by the Mama Eats Ebook Ingredients 3 cups dry black beans sea salt 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 yellow onion - sliced in half 1 jalape?o - slit down the side 5 cloves of garlic - smashed and peeled 2 teaspoons smoked paprika 2 teaspoons chili powder 1½ teaspoons ground cumin freshly ground black pepper 2 bay leaves juice from 1 lime Instructions Soak the beans overnight or up to 24 hours in plenty of purified water with a splash of apple cider vinegar. Drain and rinse the beans. Place them in a large soup pot and cover them with purified water by about 2. Add a generous pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, covered, for 30 minutes. Taste for doneness. If the beans are not completely soft, continue to cook until fully done. Salt at the last 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove 1½ cups of the beans to an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to make the brownies. Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onion halves, face down, and the jalape?o. Let sit on the heat for about 4-5 minutes, flipping the jalape?o halfway through, until the vegetables are slightly charred. Add the garlic cloves and let them get fragrant for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove some water from the pot with the cooked beans, so that the beans are just covered by the water (by about 1). Add the charred onion, jalape?o, garlic, and the oil from the pan to the pot. Add the paprika, chili, cumin, another generous pinch of salt, black pepper, and bay leaves, mixing everything in. Bring the beans up to a very strong simmer over medium heat. Let simmer, with the lid askew, for 30-45 minutes, until the bean liquid has reduced and become creamy, and until the beans are buttery soft. The liquid will thicken more once it cools. Turn off the heat and mix in the lime juice. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust if needed. Remove the jalape?o, onion, and bay leaves. Remove 2 cups of the creamy beans to an airtight container, catching some of the liquid but not too much. These will be used for the Refried Black Bean Cauliflower Tacos (recipe below), so keep them refrigerated until ready to make the recipe. Use the rest of the creamy beans in the Creamy Black Bean Bowls (recipe below). 3.5.3226     2) Cook the Rice or Quinoa Pot of Rice or Quinoa   Print Serves: 6 cups Ingredients 2 cups rice of choice or quinoa sea salt freshly ground black pepper (optional) olive oil (optional) brown rice vinegar (optional) Instructions Cook the rice or quinoa according to the instructions on the package (if your rice came in a package), or any other cooking method you prefer, like in a rice cooker, etc. We like to cook our rice with a generous pinch of salt, a grind of black pepper, a glug of olive oil, and a small splash of brown rice vinegar, which makes it infinitely more flavorful. Use in the Creamy Black Bean Bowls (recipe below). 3.5.3226   3) Make the Quick Pickled Onions Quick Pickled Onions   Print adapted from Simply Vibrant Ingredients ½ cup brown rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar 1 cup warm purified water 1½ teaspoons sea salt 1 medium red onion - thinly sliced Instructions Combine the vinegar, water and salt in a large glass jar. Close the jar and shake to dissolve the salt. Add the onion and shake once again to mix. Let the onions marinate at room temperature for at least 1 hour. The onions will become more flavorful as more time passes. Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 week. 3.5.3226   4) Make the Cilantro Jalape?o Crema Cilantro Jalape?o Crema   Print Serves: about 1½ cups Ingredients 1 cup untoasted cashews - soaked in water for at least 15 minutes ½ cup purified water juice from 1 lime ¼ - ½ of a jalape?o handful of cilantro (tender stems included) sea salt Instructions Drain and rinse the cashews. Place them in an upright blender, along with the purified water, lime juice, jalape?o, cilantro, and sea salt to taste. Blend on high until smooth, adding small splashes of water if the sauce seems too thick. Taste for salt and adjust if needed. Keep refrigerated in an airtight container. 3.5.3226   5) Roast the Cauliflower Roasted Cauliflower   Print Ingredients 1 very large or 2 small heads of cauliflower - chopped into bite-sized florets olive oil or other cooking oil of choice sea salt freshly ground black pepper ½ teaspoon cumin seeds 6 scallions - sliced into ½ pieces Instructions Preheat oven too 400° F (200° C). Prepare 2 parchment-lined baking sheets. Distribute the cauliflower between the baking sheets, drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cumin seeds. Mix to coat. Place in the oven and roast for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, flip the cauliflower on both trays and add the scallions, mixing them into the cauliflower. Roast for 10-15 more minutes, or until the cauliflower is very soft and caramelized and the scallions are slightly charred. 3.5.3226     Recipes These bowls are all about the creamy black beans, which make the best case for cooking beans from scratch. They turn out so velvety and flavorful, and you can change up the spices and aromatics based on your preferences. They’re delicious simply served over something starchy like rice or quinoa. But a few of our punchy, colorful toppings from prep day take them to that completely next level. Best part? These bowls come together in no time since you’ve done all the prep. Creamy Black Bean Bowls   Print Serves: 4-6 Ingredients about 5 cups creamy black beans (recipe above) about 6 cups cooked rice or quinoa (recipe above) quick pickled onions (recipe above) cilantro jalape?o crema (recipe above) other topping suggestions cubed avocado sliced cherry tomatoes fresh cilantro leaves sliced green onion Instructions Serve the warm creamy black beans in individually portioned bowls, over warmed rice/­­quinoa, topped with quick pickled onions, crema, avocado, tomatoes, cilantro, and/­­or green onion. 3.5.3226   We’re so obsessed with these tacos! They repurpose the creamy black beans in a refried bean scenario, which gives them a totally new life. In addition, the tortillas get loaded up with our roasted cauliflower and scallions, quick pickled onions, crema, tomatoes, cilantro, and/­­or any other toppings you like on your tacos. The result is a perfectly filling and flavorful package that we crave constantly. Refried Black Bean and Cauliflower Tacos   Print Serves: 4 Ingredients for the refried beans olive oil or other cooking oil of choice ½ yellow onion - diced sea salt ½ teaspoon chili powder 1 teaspoon smoked paprika freshly ground black pepper 2 cloves of garlic - minced 2 cups creamy black beans (from above) for the tacos refried black beans (recipe above) warmed corn tortillas or other tortillas of choice warmed roasted cauliflower and scallions (recipe above) cilantro jalape?o crema (recipe above) quick pickled onions (recipe above) cubed avocado sliced cherry tomatoes fresh cilantro leaves hot sauce (optional) Instructions to make the refried beans Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and a pinch of sea salt, and sauté until translucent, about 7 minutes. Add the chili powder, smoked paprika, black pepper, and garlic, and mix everything in for about 30 seconds, until fragrant. Mix in the beans and let them warm through. Mash the beans with a potato masher or a fork right in the skillet, until most of them are mashed, with some whole pieces remaining throughout. Cook for an additional 2 minutes, adding small splashes of water if the beans seem too dry. Taste for salt and adjust when needed. Serve warm in the tacos. to make the tacos Spread a generous amount of black beans in the bottom of each tortilla. Top with the roasted cauliflower and scallions, dollops of crema, quick pickled onions, avocado, tomatoes, cilantro, and hot sauce, if using. Enjoy right away. 3.5.3226   We consider these brownies to be in the snacking category as opposed to being a full-on dessert. They still feel like a treat, but definitely not your most decadent treat in the world. They’re great for lunch boxes, and it’s always a good idea to keep a batch in the freezer for a wholesome dessert option. The raspberries are pretty crucial here. They contribute to the moistness of the brownies, and their tart berry flavor just goes so perfectly with the chocolatey brownies. Black Bean Raspberry Brownie Bites   Print Serves: 12 brownies Ingredients 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds 1½ cups plain cooked black beans (from recipe above) 3 tablespoons soft coconut oil, plus more for oiling the tin 2 tablespoons tahini, almond butter, or other nut butter of choice 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3/­­4 cup cocoa powder ½ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut sugar 1 1/­­2 teaspoons baking powder pinch of sea salt about 6 oz fresh raspberries (or frozen but not thawed) Instructions Preheat oven to 350°F (175° C). Prepare a 12 hole muffin tin by oiling each hole with soft coconut oil. In a small bowl, combine the ground flax with 6 tablespoons of water. Whisk together and let sit while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. In a large bowl, mash the black beans until smooth. Add the oil, tahini/­­nut butter, vanilla, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, and salt to the bowl. Mix everything together until smooth. Fold in the flax mixture, which should be thickened to a raw egg-like consistency at this point. Carefully fold in the raspberries. You can also do all this mashing and mixing in a food processor if you prefer. Distribute the brownie mixture in the oiled muffin tin, patting it down into the muffin holes somewhat evenly. I like to use slightly dampened hands for this, but you can also use a wetted spoon. Place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, until the brownies are dry to the touch on the outside and fudgy on the inside. Let cool for at least 15 minutes before removing the brownies from the pan. Keep refrigerated or frozen in an air-tight container. 3.5.3226 The post Meal Plan Mini: Creamy Black Bean Bowls, Cauliflower Tacos, Raspberry Brownies appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

Brioche Bagels

June 12 2019 Vegan Dad 

Brioche Bagels I recently saw brioche bagels at the grocery store and, quite frankly, they looked terrible. I was pretty sure I could make a vegan version that was so much better than whatever Loblaws was peddling. I was right! These are tender and absolutely delicious toasted with jam, or as a sandwich. They are the perfect addition to any brunch or lunch. The recipe is a Reinhart adaptation and mashup. You can also make two 1 lb sandwich loaves if that is more your thing.  INGREDIENTS Makes 8 large bagels Sponge - 2.25 oz bread flour - 8 g instant yeast - 4 fl oz lukewarm plain soy milk Dough - 2 oz cooked sweet potato - 4.5 fl oz plain soy milk (cold), or aquafaba* - 14.75 oz bread flour - 1 oz sugar - 1.25 tsp (10 g) salt (or generous .25 tsp (4 g) if using salted butter) - 4 oz vegan butter, at room temperature** Poaching Liquid - enough water the fill your pot about 1.5 high - 1 tbsp baking soda - 1 tbsp brown sugar * I did not find any difference between soy milk or aquafaba in a blind taste test. **You need a butter that will firm up when cold. I used home-made and Melt with great results. METHOD 1. Whisk together the sponge ingredients in a stand mixer bowl until smooth. Cover and let rise for 45 mins. 2. Blend together sweet potato and milk (or aquafaba) with an immersion blender in a small container (I use a pyrex 1 cup liquid measuring cup) until very smooth. Whisk into the sponge. 3. Add the flour, sugar, and salt, Use the dough hook to bring the ingredients together into a rough dough. Make sure all the ingredients are incorporated. Let rest for 5 mins. 4. With the dough hook running on medium speed, add the vegan butter about 2 tbsp at a time, waiting for it to be incorporated into the dough before adding more. The dough will start out tough but will soften as it takes on more fat. 5. Once the butter is incorporated, knead the dough for 5-7 mins, or until smooth.  6. Shape into a ball, place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover, and let rise for 60 mins.  7. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball.  8. Line a large baking sheet with lightly oiled parchment paper. 9. Pinch though the centre of the ball with your thumb and forefinger, then shape into a ring. (I find this method best because the final bagel is delicate and this allows it to withstand the poaching process without breaking apart).  10. Place the shaped dough rings on the prepared sheet, mist with oil, cover with plastic wrap, and immediately refrigerate for 8 hours, or overnight. The bagels will have risen and firmed up in the cold. 11. When you are ready to bake, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Get the poaching liquid simmering in a large pot.  12. Add as many bagels as will comfortably fit in your pot (usually four), top side down (they should float). Poach for no more than 30 seconds, then flip over. Poach for no more than 30 seconds more, then transfer back to the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining bagels. 13. Bake for 8 mins, then rotate the pan. If the bottoms of the bagels are browning too much, you can at this time place the baking sheet on top of an empty baking sheet to insulate the bottom. Bake for another 6-8 mins until golden.  14. Let cool and serve!

Potato and Fennel Hash Skillet

Potato and Fennel Hash Skillet This potato and fennel hash skillet meal makes for a very special breakfast/­­brunch, but it also works nicely as a wholesome lunch or dinner. And the leftovers taste like a really special potato salad! So it’s pretty versatile. We’re obsessed with the combination of potatoes and fennel. Potato fennel soup is a staple (maybe we should share that recipe too?), and our love for that pairing definitely doesn’t stop there. Fennel is a polarizing vegetable, but I think that mostly has to do with its crunchy, anise-forward raw form. Cooked fennel takes on a completely new life – it’s sweet and silky, with a toned down anise flavor. If you’ve never tried it, you’re in for a serious treat :) We’ll be making this whole dish on our Instagram stories later today, so you can see exactly how it comes together. The main chunk of time is dedicated to getting the fennel and potatoes golden and crispy. From there on out it’s just about topping it with all your favorite things. The caramelized fennel provides a beautiful sweetness, and the bell pepper gives this hash a crucial dose of juiciness. We included beans and spinach to make this a complete meal, but you could also omit them if you’re looking for a hash to accompany other, more filling breakfast dishes. Wishing you a nice weekend and hope you’ll give this a try

Rhubarb Milk

May 22 2019 Golubka Kitchen 

Rhubarb Milk Stopping by with a different way to celebrate rhubarb season today. Think strawberry milk, but made with beautiful, pink stalks of rhubarb and a few lush aromatics. It comes together quickly and can be enjoyed in a number of delicious ways. You start this recipe out by stewing the rhubarb in maple syrup, which takes no more than 10 minutes and leaves you with a delicious rhubarb ‘jam’. You could stop right there and serve it on top yogurt, porridge, granola, or various desserts (like panna cotta). Or you could go on and blend the stewed rhubarb with some dairy-free milk. You can then enjoy the rhubarb milk multiple ways – on its own with ice, poured over iced matcha for a beautiful, spring matcha latte, or you could blend it with a frozen banana or two for an out-of-this-world rhubarb smoothie. We employ the help of rose water and cardamom to complement the tart flavors of rhubarb in this recipe, but if you don’t have those, you could entirely leave them out or add your own aromatic twist – think cinnamon, cloves, pink peppercorns, orange blossom water, etc. Hope you enjoy this easy little idea! Wishing you a great rest of your week

Vegan Socca Recipe – Chickpea Flatbread Gluten-free

July 5 2019 Vegan Richa 

Vegan Socca Recipe – Chickpea Flatbread Gluten-freeEasy Vegan Socca Recipe – Chickpea Flatbread. Savory Gluten free Vegan Chickpea flour flatbread. 1 Bowl 5 Ingredients. Vegan Grain-free Soyfree Nutfree Recipe. Jump to Recipe What is Socca? Socca is a type of thin unleavened pancake, flatbread or crepe made with chickpea flour. It has other names in various regions of France and Italy (farinata, Panisse) and can be made thin or thick with various flavor additions. It is naturally gluten-free and grain-free and can easily be used as flatbread or pizza base. Similar preparations are also found in other cuisines with variations in methods of cooking and forms. Chickpea flour is an amazingly versatile and worldy ingredient! Socca Bread needs just 2 main ingredients, chickpea flour and water. I add salt, rosemary, pepper flakes for flavor and cook it on a skillet or bake. I prefer the skillet version. It is easier, and quicker and you can adjust the thickness and crispyness as you prefer. Slice up the socca and serve with dips or just olive oil. Or top with pesto or chimichurri and veggies and bake for a pesto pizza. Chickpea flour is generally available in grocery stores.

Super Green Gazpacho

July 3 2019 Golubka Kitchen 

Super Green Gazpacho Stopping by with another refreshing recipe today. The weather’s been extra balmy lately, and somehow, icy cold smoothies have become my main source of fuel over the past week or so. Gazpacho and/­­or other chilled and pureed summer soups are basically like savory smoothies, so they fit right in! This green gazpacho recipe is such a favorite. I make variations on it all season long, always with the intention of fitting all of the green summer goodness into the blender. The result is such feel-good food that offers the best relief from the heat. This gazpacho is packed with produce, which on its own would make for a lovely, light soup. Here, the produce is accompanied by pumpkin seeds to make the gazpacho more complete and satisfying. When whirled up in the blender, the pumpkin seeds turn into a pumpkin seed milk, which contributes to the fat content and overall creaminess of the soup. Hope you’ll give this a try one day this summer :) Super Green Gazpacho   Print Serves: 2-4 Ingredients ½ cup pumpkin seeds - soaked overnight 1 avocado - pitted and peeled 1 green bell pepper - seeded and roughly chopped 1 jalape?o or serrano pepper - seeded 1-2 cloves of garlic - roughly chopped ½ of a small white onion - roughly chopped 4 baby/­­Persian cucumbers - roughly chopped 1 packed cup basil and cilantro leaves, plus more for serving juice from 1 lime 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar ¼ teaspoon cayenne or chili pepper (optional) sea salt - to taste ½ cup purified water, plus more if needed dairy-free plain yogurt - for serving Instructions Drain and rinse the pumpkin seeds very well. Combine all the ingredients, except the yogurt, in a high-speed blender. Blend on high until very smooth. Add more water if the soup seems too thick, until you achieve your desired consistency. Taste for salt and adjust if needed. Optionally, strain the soup through a fine mesh strainer. This makes it a bit smoother, but its good either way. Transfer the soup to an airtight container and refrigerate for at least an hour, until its well chilled. Serve, garnished with basil and cilantro, and topped with dollops of yogurt. Notes If you dont have time to chill the gazpacho, you can serve it with a few ice cubes per bowl, which will cool it down right away. 3.5.3226 The post Super Green Gazpacho appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

Paul McCartney’s Super Vegetable Salad

June 17 2019 Meatless Monday 

This is a fantastic salad that can accompany whatever you fancy -- here it’s served with tofu, but you could just as easily serve it with veggie burger or vegetarian sausages, as well as chips and new or mashed potatoes. You can also vary the steamed vegetables according to whats in season. This recipe comes to us from Sir Paul McCartney and our friends at Meat Free Monday . It’s featured in The Meat Free Monday Cookbook . Foreword by Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney. Published by Kyle Books. Photography by Tara Fisher. Want more meatless recipes like this? Subscribe to our newsletter  for a weekly selection of plant-based recipes delivered right to your inbox! Serves 4 - 28 cherry tomatoes - 1 head of broccoli - 12 green beans, cut into 2cm lengths - 2 carrots, peeled and sliced into 2cm pieces - 1 head of lettuce -- I like Romaine - 3 spring onions, finely chopped - 100g polenta - a handful of chopped herbs of your choice - 250g tofu, cut into slices - olive oil for frying   - FOR THE DRESSING - 2 tablespoons olive oil - 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar - 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard (optional) - 1 teaspoon maple syrup (if you like a bit of sweetness)   Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F) and roast the cherry tomatoes for 10 minutes. Cover the bottom of a pan with cold water and place a steamer above it. Put the broccoli, green beans and carrots in the steamer, turn the heat on quite high and steam for about 15 minutes, occasionally prodding the carrots with a fork to see if they are done. Some people like them slightly crunchy, others prefer them a little softer. While the vegetables are steaming, make a salad with the leaves and spring onions. Combine the polenta and herbs in a bowl. Heat some olive oil in a frying pan. Dip the tofu in the polenta mixture, then fry until golden. Whisk together the ingredients for the dressing, but only pour over at the last minute. Assemble your meal by first putting the salad on the plate, then the warm vegetables and finally the tofu. Pour over the dressing then add a little seasoning sauce such as Braggs or a sauce of your choice. The post Paul McCartney’s Super Vegetable Salad appeared first on Meatless Monday.

How to Make Cashew Mayonnaise

June 7 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I feel like I need to clarify the title of this post a little bit. Maybe it would be better if I called it “How I Make Cashew Mayo.” I don’t make cashew mayo the traditional way, so this isn’t THE definitive cashew mayo recipe. It’s MY cashew mayo recipe. It’s a little bit different from others because: 1) A lot of cashew mayo recipes are raw. Mine is not. 2) My recipe isn’t raw because I use vegetable broth in it. This adds a little boost of extra flavor. 3) I don’t add anything to sweeten my cashew mayo. See? It’s different. And I can’t promise you that it tastes exactly like real mayo (because it was the 80s when I last had real mayo), but it makes a mean sandwich spread and it’s great on crackers or as a dip for veggies too. Are you ready to get started? Here’s how to make cashew mayo! Put one cup of raw cashews in a bowl and cover them with water. Let them sit for a few hours–about two to four is a good amount. Drain and rinse the cashews, then pop them in your blender or food processor with […]

Lauki Vadi Ki Sabji

May 25 2019 Manjula's kitchen 

Lauki Vadi Ki Sabji (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Lauki Vadi Ki Sabji Laucki is also known as Bottle gourd. This is a healthy and wholesome lentil and vegetable main dish. I like making Lauki as it is mild in taste and easy to digest. I usually will serve this with plain rice or rotis. - 4 cup laucki (bottle gourd, peeled and cut into byte size cubes) - 1/­­3 cup moong dal vadi (broken into small pieces) - 3/­­4 cup tomato puree - 1 tsp ginger paste - 2 tbsp oil - 1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera) - 1/­­8 tsp asafetida (hing) - 1 tbsp coriander powder (dhania) - 1/­­4 tsp turmeric (haldi) - 1/­­2 tsp red chili powder - 1 tsp salt - 1/­­4 tsp garam masala - 1/­­2 cup water -  I am using instant pot; I am using the instant pot instead of pressure-cooker. Not for saving time but ease of use. -  Heat one tablespoon of oil in instant pot on sautéed mode. Oil should be moderately hot, add moong dal vadi stir-fry till they are light golden brown this should take about 1 minute. take out the vadies from instant pot. -  Add remaining 1 tablespoon of oil, in instant pot keeping on sautéed mode oil should be moderately hot and add cumin seeds. When seeds start to crack, add the asafetida, stir and add tomato puree, ginger, coriander powder, turmeric, salt and chili powder and cook stirring occasional till spice mix start leaving the oil. -  Add bottle gourd, vadies and 1/­­2 cup of water. Change the setting to pressure cook on high mode. Set the time for 6 minutes. (At this time instant pot is working just like pressure cooker, it will take same time building the pressure and after cooking releasing the pressure as pressure cooker, advantage is you can take care other work you have to do or even if you have to go out.) -  Open the instant pot when you are ready. After you open the instant pot adjust the water if you need more, add garam masala. I like to serve this with roti or rice. This makes a very satisfying meal. Enjoy!

The tomatoes, spices and cashews and boiled with a bit of water then blended. Onion is then caramelized separately. The tomato mixture + onion + a few spices is cooked down until roasted. To keep the rest of the process simple, I use panfried tofu with the sauce. You can bake the tofu like my butter sauce tofu, or other other proteins such as chickpea tofu, tempeh, seitan. Or just add some chickpeas or veggies. The several stages of cooking the ingredients and the sauce makes it a deeper richer flavor.
