RECIPE: Raw Vegan Pies

18th Jul 10 (Sun) 2 comments

Raw Strawberry
& Apple Pies

For this month’s Vegetarian Supper Club in Eugene, Oregon, the theme is “RAW Talent“… all food needs to be raw, and then we’re having an unrelated talent show afterward.  I had always wanted to try something from Jónsi & Alex‘s raw cookbook that came as part of their Riceboy Sleeps debut album; so I decided to make two pies from it for this month’s VSC.  I modified the recipes slightly, but they are still quite true to the original.  For more info on Jónsi & Alex, check out after the recipes… on to the food!

Raw Strawberry Pie
makes one pie

Crust

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup dates & 2 Tbl coconut oil (note: oil is solid at room temperature)
  • pinch of salt

Blend items separately and one at a time using a blender or food processor.  Add into separate bowl and kneed with hands.  Scoop into pre-greased pie pan/tin and with hands form into a pie crust.  If the dough is still too dry, you can a little bit of water (1 oz or so).

Note: if allergic to almonds (or pecans below), other nuts can be substituted.  I’ve used Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, macadamia, cashews, et cetera for raw pie crusts.  Measurements are probably the same for substitute nuts, but do some research if you’re worried.

Filling

  • 2 cups coconut
  • 4 cups frozen strawberries (original recipe was 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar
  • 2 Tbl coconut oil
  • pinch of salt
  • also: extra strawberries and coconut for top

Combined all items in blender or food processor and blend until smooth.  Add into pie crust.  Top with extra strawberries and coconut.  Let the pie refrigerate for at least 2 hours (I fridged it overnight).

Here is a video of Jónsi & Alex making it…

And here’s a close-up of my final version…

Next up… pie #2…

Raw Apple Pie (aka Arkansas Apple Pie)
makes one pie

Crust

  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 2 Tbl almond butter
  • also: 4 Tbl almond butter for layering

Blend items separately and one at a time using a blender or food processor.  Add into separate bowl and kneed with hands.  Scoop into pre-greased pie pan/tin and with hands form into a pie crust.  If the dough is still too dry, you can a little bit of water (1 oz or so).  Then spread another layer of almond butter (4 Tbl) over the pie crust.

Filling

  • 4-5 apples (total)
  • 1 cup dates
  • 2 Tbl agave nectar
  • 2 Tbl cinnamon
  • also: extra almond butter or cinnamon for top

Combined half of apples (2 to 2.5 apples) with 1 cup dates and 2 Tbl agave nectar in blender or food processor and blend until smooth.  Add into pie crust.  Cut other half of apples into large chunks and put into pie crust.  Top with extra almond butter or cinnamon.  Serve now or later.

Now the promised extra info about Jónsi & Alex.  Jónsi Birgisson is the lead singer of the Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós.  Within the past year, he released an ambient record with his partner Alex Somers – called Riceboys Sleeps – and his debut solo album, Go.  It’s all quite gorgeous stuff.  Click below for some of my favorites of their albums, and a review of Jónsi’s recent Portland show (April 2010):

RECIPE: Raw Cheesecake with Blueberry Topping

21st Feb 10 (Sun) 4 comments

Raw Cheesecake
with Blueberry Topping


(photo by koko)

For this month’s Vegetarian Supper Club in Eugene, Oregon, we had a challenge.  One of the members has a ton of allergies, and we thought it would be a fun challenge to make only dishes that she can eat.  Her allergies range from soy to dairy to some nuts to citrus to mushroom to eggplant to potatoes and much more… and, yeah, this is a vegetarian supper club.

So, what to make?  Well, every time I thought of something, there was always one thing in the recipe that she couldn’t do.  Until… we came across a raw cheesecake recipe…

Raw Vegan Cheesecake
makes one cheesecake

  • 2 cups macadamia nuts
  • ½ cup pitted medjool dates
  • ¼ cup dried coconut (I used unsweetened)
  • 1½ cups cashews
  • 6 Tbl coconut oil (melted to a liquid)
  • ¼ cup raw agave nectar
  • Seeds from 1 vanilla bean
  • ¼ cup lime juice (or replace with other liquid)

Place macadamia nuts and cashews in two separate bowls. Cover each with cold water and soak for 4 hours. Rinse, drain, set aside.

Pulse the macadamia nuts and dates in the food processor to a sticky, crumb-like consistency. Sprinkle dried coconut on the bottom of an 8” pie plate. Press macadamia nut mixture onto it, to form a crust.

Place cashews, agave nectar, coconut oil, 6 tbs water, and lime juice in the food processor. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean into the food processor. Puree until smooth and then pour onto crust. Freeze 1 to 2 hours, or until firm. Slice while frozen, but defrost on counter or in the fridge. Top with berries and enjoy!

NOTE: The innards came about ½ inch from the top of the shell.  If you want solely a cheesecake without a fruit or other topping, I’d recommend upping all of the inside ingredients by about 33% (i.e.- 2 cups cashews as the base, pull out your algebra skillz for the rest).

Blueberry Sauce
makes 1½ to 2 cups

  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbl cornstarch
  • 4 Tbl water
  • 1 Tbl butter substitute (I used coconut oil due to my friend’s allergies)

Combine the blueberries, water, sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil and simmer gently for 15 minutes. While simmering, mash the berries slightly with a potato masher. Mix the cornstarch into water. With the blueberries still simmering, slowly stir in the cornstarch mixture. Continue to stir for at least two minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter.

This topping will likely work with other fruit besides blueberries – such as strawberries, raspberries, yourmomberries, et cetera…

If you’re only here for the music… well, stay tuned.  I have five concerts coming up this week.  Yep, you read that correctly.  Five.

RECIPE: Cute Olive Penguins

10th Jan 10 (Sun) 20 comments

Cute Olive Penguins

(click for larger)

I made these olive penguins (with my wife’s help) for this evening’s Vegetarian Supper Club in Eugene, OR, as a fun appetizer when people came in.  Hopefully they’ll be a hit!  They were really fun to make.

Ingredients:
makes as many as desired

  • medium black olives (the head)
  • large black olives (the body)
  • cream cheese or vegan cream cheese spread (for the stomach)
  • narrow carrots, cut into small rounds (feet) with notch (for beak)

Steps:

  1. Cut carrots approximately 1/8 inch (3mm) thick… this will become the feet and beaks (just shy of 1/4 of the carrot slice is beak-size).
  2. Cut large olives down one side (length-wise) and then fill with a small amount of cream cheese.
  3. Assemble penguins with a toothpick like shown in the picture at the top of the page.
  4. Get crazy and start a penguin war with extra toothpicks and ketchup for penguin blood.
  5. OK, step 4 may be optional.  Your call…
  6. Enjoy!

RECIPE: Creamy Vegan Chocolate Pudding

10th Jan 10 (Sun) 3 comments

Vegan Chocolate Pudding

(photo courtesy of foodgawker)

This weekend will be a double-whammy recipe post (cute olive penguins this evening).  Yesterday I made homemade vegan chocolate pudding for today’s Vegetarian Supper Club in Eugene, OR.  It wasn’t too hard… and my taste test last night was delicious.  It is adapted from the January 2007 issue of Vegetarian Times. (They also used instant decaf coffee as an ingredient).

Ingredients:
makes four 6 oz. servings

  • 2 cups plain soy milk/rice milk/coconut milk, divided
  • 2 Tbl cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup vegan semisweet chocolate chips (or regular chocolate chips if not strictly vegan)
  • 3 Tbl sugar
  • pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Steps:

  1. Whisk together 1/2 cup soymilk and cornstarch in a small bowl.  Set aside.
  2. Combine remaining 1.5 cups soymilk, cocoa, chocolate chips, sugar, and nutmeg into a large saucepan.  Warm over medium heat until chocolate chips have melted.
  3. Whisk in cornstarch mixture and cook for 10 minutes over medium-low heat or until pudding thickens* and begins to boil.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  5. Divide pudding among 4 custard cups and chill well before serving.
  6. Enjoy!

*NOTE: If you double the recipe (or quadruple, like I did), you need to heat it longer… it took mine about 40 minutes instead of the above prescribed 10 minutes… you don’t want to apply extra heat to do it quicker… it may not thicken properly/consistently.

Info for the dieters… each serving is approximately 150 calories, 5 grams of protein, 5 grams fat, and 25 grams carbs.  I kept my version to 5 ingredients (for a challenge imposed by the dinner theme) and used sweetened dark chocolate chips and didn’t add the extra sugar, not much different outcome in flavor or consistency.

RECIPE: Pumpkin Vodka Cocktail

26th Nov 09 (Thu) 2 comments

Pumpkin-Infused Vodka Cocktail

While this is definitely too late to prep for Thanksgiving today (unless you happen to have Pumpkin vodka sitting around the house), it’s an easy recipe and the infused vodka is delicious.  If you’re on the look-out for last minute recipes for Thanksgiving, check out Alisa’s great thanksgiving link page.

This recipe is from the December 2009 issue of VegNews magazine (tweaked slightly and directions expanded upon – plus, who only infuses a 375mL of vodka?). :)

Vodka Ingredients:

  • 750 mL of regular vodka (don’t buy cheap, but don’t buy expensive… mine was in the $15-20 range)
  • 1 cup of roasted pumpkin
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 Tbl real maple syrup

Vodka Steps:

  1. Roast the pumpkin fresh, don’t do canned – that’s gross.  For how to roast a pumpkin, check out this blog (it’s easy).
  2. After the pumpkin has cooled off a little bit, combine all ingredients in an air-tight container.
  3. Place in a cool place for 1 week.  My garage in the middle of November was cool enough.
  4. Strain the infusion.  I used a metal strainer for pass #1 and then a cheese cloth for pass #2.

Cocktail Ingredients:
makes 6 drinks

  • 1.5 cups pumpkin-infused vodka (from above)
  • 1.5 cups creamer (soy or otherwise)
  • 6 Tbl real maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or imitation flavoring
  • fresh grated nutmeg (or ground nutmeg if fresh grated is not available)
  • for rim: agave nectar & toasted ground almonds

Cocktail Steps:

  1. Combine first four ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.  Shake.
  2. Rim each martini glass with agave nectar and toasted almonds.
  3. Pour mixture in the glasses and top for nutmeg.
  4. Enjoy!

For the calorie counters in the group… the cocktail is about 260 calories, 4g of fat, 21g of carbs, and minimal protein.

RECIPE: Easy S’mores Pouches

19th Oct 09 (Mon) 5 comments

Easy S’mores Pouches

So, as many vegetarians know, marshmallows are not vegetarian due to the use of gelatin.  Well, for this month’s Vegetarian Supper Club in Eugene, OR, I attempted to make homemade vegetarian marshmallows.  I used a recipe (that shan’t be linked to), followed it to the letter… and failed.  I mean, it tasted like marshmallows, but it never solidified and was basically unusable sugar-goop.  Oh well.  However, I had a backup plan for my s’mores pouches: marshmallow fluff

Ingredients:
serves however many (i.e.- it’s easily scalable)

  • puff pastry shells, phyllo dough… or crescent rolls (i.e.- the easy route that I took due to expediency, 1 canister of crescent rolls = 4 pouches)
  • chocolate chips (any variety you like… 20 chips / pouch)
  • marshmallow fluff (the standard 7 oz. jar = 8 pouches)
  • graham crackers (any variety you like, 1 large cracker = 4 pouches)
  • cookware: a muffin pan… or two.

Directions (see assembly pictures below):

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. Combine two (2) crescent roll triangles into one ball, roll out into a flat floured area.  Place inside greased muffin pan (I made about 8 in each 12-slotted muffin pan).
  3. Add crumbled up 1/4 graham cracker
  4. Add roughly 20 chocolate chips per pouch.
  5. Add 2-3 Tbl of marshmallow fluff per pouch and close up / twist them off at the top.
  6. Cook for 15-17 minutes or until brown (a little bit more than the crescent roll recipe to ensure cooking throughout).  If you use puff pastry shells or phyllo dough, your cooking time and temperature will likely vary.
  7. The pouches tend to open up exposing the marshmallow.  If you don’t want this to happen, figure something out for step 5… I didn’t mind them opening up a little bit.
  8. Let cool… and enjoy!

For a variation, if you have a crème brûlée torch, you could toast the marshmallow fluff a bit after cooking in the oven… yum!

For the calorie counters… it’s about 400 calories, 15g fat, 60g carbs, and 4g protein.  Um… it’s a dessert; so, yeah… hit the elliptical for 40 minutes to offset it completely. :)

Fresh Fruit Spring Rolls
with Yogurt Dipping Sauce

Makes as many rolls as you want

Spring Roll Ingredients:

  • Fresh fruit.  I used strawberries, pineapple (with their juice), bananas, raspberries.
  • Small rice paper spring roll wrappers
  • Fresh mint

Spring Roll Directions:

  1. Cut into small pieces and mix fruit & mint together.
  2. Using warm water (not too hot to the touch), dip stiff rice paper wrapper for 15-30 seconds until pliable.
  3. Place spoonful of fruit mixture in center of wrapper (amount dependent on rice paper size).  Don’t overfill, as you’ll get a hull breach.  Try to get as little of the juice in as possible, as this will make rolling it difficult.
  4. Wrap like a burrito… can be tricky.
  5. Repeat.

Dipping Sauce Ingredients:

Dipping Sauce Directions:

  1. Mix.
  2. Dip.
  3. Enjoy.

RECIPE: Vegan Mushroom Dumpling Stew

21st Jun 09 (Sun) 2 comments

Vegan Mushroom Dumpling Stew

So, a friend at work had a baby recently, and we do these things called “Meals on Wheels” for the family to help them out.  Since my friend and her family are vegetarians, I had to volunteer.  Regardless of the almost summer timing, I decided to make Mushroom Dumpling Stew.  As luck would have it, it was an overcast chilly June day anyway; so it worked out well.  Anyway, this is more of a fall soup, and it works well with many types of mushrooms.  I usually use shiitake, porchini, and chanterelle, along with standard white mushrooms (found at your local grocery).

Ingredients:
serves 8
Adapted from Suzanne Stevens’ A Taste of Hope Springs
http://www.hopespringsinstitute.com/

Dumplings~

  • 2 cups unbleached flour (white, wheat, spelt, etc)
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. fresh-ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh herbs (rosemary, oregano, thyme, tarragon, etc)
  • 3 Tbs. vegan spread (butter substitute)
  • 2 servings of egg replacer, beaten (vegan egg substitute)
  • 1/2 cup milk (soy or rice)

Stew Fixins~

  • 8 cups vegetarian broth
  • 1/2 cup Madeira wine (or Marsala, Sherry, etc)
  • 1/3 oz. dried porchini mushrooms (substitute other dried mushrooms if porchini are n/a)
  • 1 Tbs. vegan spread (butter substitute)
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • One onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
  • 3 Tbs. brandy (or port)
  • 1 pound of mushrooms (any combination), sliced
  • 1 large carrot, sliced
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh sage and thyme
  • freshly-ground black pepper to taste

Steps:

  1. Heat Madeira with 1/2 cup of water in a small pan until the liquid begins to simmer. Add the porchini, remove from heat. Cover pan and let sit for 15 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, and herbs. Add butter in small pieces. With pastry cutter or fork, cut butter into flour mixture. Add eggs, then soy milk. Stir mixture with a spoon until it just comes together. Add a bit more milk if needed.
  3. In frying pan, heat 1 Tbs. butter, add onions and garlic and cook until they are just beginning to caramelize. Add brandy and cook off. Hold mixture in bowl.
  4. Heat olive oil in soup pan. Add sliced mushrooms and carrot, and sauté. Cook until the mushrooms begin to brown and carrots soften slightly.
  5. Then add 8 cups of broth and soaking porchini-Madeira liquid to sautéed mushrooms. Bring soup to gentle boil, add sage and thyme, adjust seasoning if necessary. Add onion mixture in and heat.
  6. Drop dumpling batter by the spoonful into the simmering stew.
  7. Roll dumplings over after 4 to 5 minutes. When dumplings have cooked for at least 5 minutes on each side, serve stew.

RECIPE: Vegan Bananas Foster with Coconut Vanilla Bean vice cream

31st May 09 (Sun) 1 comment

(photo: Food Network)

Vegan Bananas Foster

I made some vegan Bananas Foster and Coconut Vanilla Bean vice cream* for Veggie Supper Club tonight.  Our theme was “Cajun”… so what better than a classic New Orleans flambé dessert?  Both recipes below are super easy, and super delicious.  And, to be fair, making Bananas Foster into a “vegan recipe” is easy – you just swap out the butter for a vegan spread.  This recipe paired with the vegan coconut vanilla bean vice cream is stupendous.

*– vice cream = vegan ice cream (Jeff Rogers’ Vice Cream at Amazon)

There were different recipes for Bananas Foster available online, and the first one I tried was waaaaaay too saucy… it made for a lot of leftover juice and didn’t seem to have the consistency I’ve known in Bananas Foster.  Here’s the recipe I ended up going with (a modification of several online recipes):

Ingredients:
serves 4

  • 1/4 cup vegan spread, butter substitute (aka 4 tbsp or 1/2 stick)
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3-4 bananas, peeled and sliced lengthwise or into coins
  • 1/3 cup dark rum (Myers, Whalers, etc)
  • 2 tbsp banana liqueur (DeKuypers, etc)
  • ground cinnamon
  • a bbq lighter or other fire source

Steps:

  1. Melt the vegan spread (butter) and dark sugar in a pan until smooth, creamy paste.  I used a big wok, as I was making a large batch and wanted room for the flames, too.
  2. Add cut bananas and sautee for 2-3 minutes over medium-high heat.
  3. Combine rum & liqueur into a microwave safe dish and warm in a microwave slightly (30 seconds).
  4. Add rum & liqueur to bananas and light on fire, stir to stoke the flames… **
  5. Sprinkle cinnamon while flames are present for a small fireworks display.
  6. Serve over ice cream and enjoy!

**– The “showy” way to do this is to light a shotglass on fire, or if using a gas stove light a metal ladel full of the rum mixture and pour into the bananas.  We had a small accident with a ceramic dish when testing this out at home prior to the Veggie Supper Club; so we opted for the safer way.  Add the rum mixture directly to the pan and light with a long bbq lighter.  Use precautions, have a friend handy with water or a fire extinguisher.  I’d recommend not doing this over a gas oven if you’re tentative.  Seriously folks, be careful. :)  It’s all fun and games until someone lights their kitchen on fire.

Vegan Coconut Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

This recipe comes from Jeff Rogers’ Vice Cream recipe book.  I modified it slightly as the measurements weren’t realistic (size of coconut milk can) and the texture (not using the bean skin).  I made a double batch, and again, it worked great with the Bananas Foster…

Ingredients:
makes 1 quart

  • 2 cans of coconut milk (14 oz each), use regular not “light”
  • 1 cup pitted, diced medjool dates  (used as a sweetener)
  • 3 vanilla beans
  • Note: You will need an ice cream maker

Steps:

  1. Add 2 cans of coconut milk to a food processor or blender.  For ice creams, you want a high fat content; so refrain from using the light (or “lite”) variety of coconut milk.
  2. Add 1 cup of pitted, diced medjool dates to the coconut milk.  If you can find these prepared in the stores, good luck.  I just bought some in the bulk section and pitted and diced them myself.  Medjool dates are a great natural sweetener, and they also help to solidify the vice cream.
  3. Cut the very tips (on either end) and slice vanilla beans length-wise.  Use the knife (or a small spoon) and scrape out the vanilla bean seeds from the pod and add to the mixture.  The seeds are where the flavor is held.  For an example of how to do this, check out this informative YouTube video from Dyann Bakes.  The seed yield you’ll get is more than what she got…
  4. Blend the mixture until smooth, approximately 1 minute.
  5. Chill for a few hours in the fridge.
  6. Add to ice cream maker and follow instructions included with your ice cream maker.

RECIPE: Vegetarian Cactus Chili

16th Mar 09 (Mon) 5 comments

I made some Vegetarian / Vegan Cactus Chili for Veggie Supper Club last night.  If you stumbled in here from a recipe search; well, this blog is mainly music related, but here are some past recipes I did: Amazin’ Beans with Homemade BBQ SauceVegan Biscuits & Gravy -and- Spiced Biscotti.

Ingredients for Cactus Chili
makes approx 6 servings (1 cup ea.)

  • Nopales (flat pad cactus), cooked, 1 Jar (30 oz) – You can use fresh cactus if your grocery has them, but you’d need to pre-cook and do stuff to them that I don’t have the understanding to try to explain.  Your best bet, just go to your local Mexican grocery store or some supermarkets may have the jarred Nopales in their Mexican food aisle.
  • Diced Tomatoes, 2 cans (~30 oz total) – You can get adventurous here and find some with garlic, peppers or other spices added as well.  The great thing about chili, it that it’s really hard to mess up.
  • Tomato Sauce, 1 can (8oz)
  • Black Beans, 1 can (~15 oz) – drained & rinsed
  • Garbanzo Beans, 1 can (~15 oz) – drained & rinsed
  • Yellow Sweet Corn, 1 can (~15 oz) – drained & rinsed
  • Onions, raw, 1/2 cup cut small
  • Garlic, 6 cloves minced
  • Olive Oil, 1 tbsp
  • Jalapeño Pepper, 1 pepper diced small
  • Veggie Mexican-style crumbles – if desired (I didn’t use them this time)
  • crushed red pepper flakes (to taste)
  • garlic powder (to taste)
  • onion powder (to taste)
  • chili powder (to taste)
  • cumin powder (to taste)
  • cilantro and/or vegan sour cream for garnishments (to taste)

Steps

  1. In a large pot (I used a 5 quart pot), saute the onions and garlic in the oil on medium-high heat until translucent.
  2. Add tomatoes and tomato sauce.
  3. Add corn, beans, jalapeno pepper, and nopales (cactus).  Make sure to thoroughly rinse the corn and beans (especially the beans).  The liquid they come in is a main source of the “gas” with beans.
  4. Add spices to taste.
  5. After everything’s been added, cook for approximately 30 minutes on medium heat.  Stir frequently.
  6. Garnish with cilantro and sour cream.  Serve with chips, tortillas, or rice.

Enjoy!

Vegan Biscuits & Gravy

I made some vegan biscuits and gravy for Veggie Supper Club last night.  Our theme was “Breakfast for Dinner.”  We also brought a vegan version of Amish Baked Oatmeal (with fresh blackberries from our backyard) and sparkling white wine, OJ & grenadine for breakfast cocktails. :)  If you stumbled in here from a recipe search; well, this blog is mainly music related, but here’s a past recipe I did: Spiced Biscotti.

Preface: The biscuit recipe below is adapted from Jo Kaucher’s Chicago Diner Cookbook.  If you’re ever in Chicago, you must go to the Chicago Diner.  It’s in Wrigleyville, and it has flippin’ amazing good food.  http://www.veggiediner.com/

The gravy recipe is adapted from Mark Reinfeld & Bo Rinaldi’s Blossoming Lotus’ Vegan World Fusion Cuisine cookbook.  If you’re ever in Portland, OR, or Kaua’i, HI, you must go to Blossoming Lotus.  The one in Kaua’i is fancier, I’ve heard.  The one in Portland is in the Pearl district and connected to a cool yoga studio.  I go there at least once everytime I’m up there.  http://www.blossominglotus.com/

Vegan Biscuits

Makes 20-24 biscuits

Ingredients:

  • 5 cups unbleached flour
  • 1 1/2 tbl baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 sticks (or .75 cups) soy margarine
  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups soymilk (unflavored)
  • 1 tbl lemon juice (or white vinegar)

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Mix three dry ingredients together. Cut in margarine until mixture resembles peas.
  3. Combine soymilk & lemon juice, and stir into dry ingredients until the flour clings together.
  4. Turn out onto a floured board or countertop, and knead until smooth.  This was the trickiest part for me. I had my wife help with adding additional flour, as the dough was VERY sticky.
  5. With a rolling pin, roll out the dough to 1/2-inch thickness, and cut with a cookie cutter, biscuit cutter… or use a small juice glass if you don’t have one of the aforementioned items around. :)
  6. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, and bake 12 to 15 minutes.

Our biscuits turned out great… but sticky to make… so good luck!!

Vegan Mushroom Gravy

Makes 6-7 cups (double batch when compared to the book)

Ingredients:

Roux~
increased from the original recipe for a lighter color/texture

  • 8 tbl spelt flour (we used unbleached flour)
  • 8 tbl olive oil
  • 4 tbl filtered water

The roux with unbleached flour worked fine.  The spelt flour is probably better for you, or maybe lends a different flavor.

Gravy~

  • 2 tbl olive oil
  • 1 small-medium sweet onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups shitake mushrooms, sliced thin
  • 4 cloves of garlic, pressed/minced
  • 4 cups of vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce / tamari, or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg, ground
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Steps:

  1. Create the roux by combining the three ingredients and mixing until in a thick paste.  Set aside.
  2. Using the olive oil, saute onion and garlic for 5 minutes on medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add mushroom and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add remaining ingredients except roux mixture and cook for 5 minutes on low heat, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add roux mixture and cook until gravy has a thick consistency, approximately 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  6. If the gravy is not thick enough, you can add additional flour, but make sure to whisk it in slowly to avoid clumping.

It’s a great recipe from the lovely Blossoming Lotus folks.  And it worked great on the Chicago Diner biscuits… yum!

RECIPE: Spiced Biscotti -and- Spiced Biscotti with Blueberries

28th May 08 (Wed) 5 comments

Spiced Biscotti

If desired, you can substitute three whole eggs for the two eggs and two egg yolks in this recipe. If vegan, you can also substitute three eggs worth of powdered egg replacer (properly mixed ahead of time with the appropriate amount of water), or you could potentially try a flax oil or apple sauce egg replacement (at your own hazard – – I don’t know how those work). Since I’m making these for a vegetarian dinner party with some vegans in attendance, I’m doing the egg replacer method.

Makes 2-5 dozen biscotti  (depending on size)

Ingredients for Spiced Biscotti:

  • 2 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs (or egg replacer equivalent to 2 eggs)
  • 2 large egg yolks (or egg replacer equivalent to 1 egg)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

You Also Need:

  • Parchment paper (disposable) or a reusable baking sheet.

Steps:

  1. Sift first eight ingredients (up through ginger) together in a small bowl.
  2. Whisk sugar and eggs in a large bowl to a light lemon color; stir in vanilla extract. Sift dry ingredients over egg mixture, then fold in until dough is just combined.
  3. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. Halve the dough and turn each portion onto an oiled cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Using floured hands, quickly stretch each portion of dough into a rough 13-by-2-inch log, placing them about 3 inches apart on the cookie sheet. Pat each dough shaper to smooth it. Bake, turn pan once, until loaves are golden and just beginning to crack on top, about 35 minutes.
  4. Cool the loaves for 10 minutes; lower oven temperature to 325 degrees. Cut each loaf diagonally into 3/8-inch slices with a serrated knife. Lay the slices about 1/2-inch apart on the cookie sheet, cut, side up and return them to the oven. Bake, turning over each cookie halfway through baking, until crisp and golden brown on both sides, about 15 minutes.
  5. Transfer biscotti to wire rack and cool completely. Biscotti can be stored in an airtight container for at least 1 month.

Notes on dough handling: Biscotti dough is rather sticky; use a rubber spatula to divide the dough into two portions for shaping. Reflour hands, then pat the logs into smoother shapes. Because the dough is rather heavy, the logs will be oval, rather than perfectly round.

Spiced Biscotti with Blueberries

Makes 2-5 dozen biscotti  (depending on size)

Ingredients for Spiced Biscotti with fruit: (new items/steps in red)

  • 3/4 cup dried fruit (currents, raisins, blueberries, cherries, yadda yadda)
  • 1/4 cup brandy or marsala wine
  • 2 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs (or egg replacer equivalent to 2 eggs)
  • 2 large egg yolks (or egg replacer equivalent to 1 egg)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

You Also Need:

  • Parchment paper (disposable) or a reusable baking sheet.

Steps:

  1. Combine dried fruit and brandy or marsala. Set aside and let stand for at least 1 hour. Drain, reserving 1 teaspoon macerating liquid.
  2. Sift the next eight ingredients (up through ginger) together in a small bowl.
  3. Whisk sugar and eggs in a large bowl to a light lemon color; stir in vanilla extract. Sift dry ingredients over egg mixture, add macerating fruit and 1 teaspoon of macerating liquid and fold ingredients until dough is just combined.
  4. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. Halve the dough and turn each portion onto an oiled cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Using floured hands, quickly stretch each portion of dough into a rough 13-by-2-inch log, placing them about 3 inches apart on the cookie sheet. Pat each dough shaper to smooth it. Bake, turn pan once, until loaves are golden and just beginning to crack on top, about 35 minutes.
  5. Cool the loaves for 10 minutes; lower oven temperature to 325 degrees. Cut each loaf diagonally into 3/8-inch slices with a serrated knife. Lay the slices about 1/2-inch apart on the cookie sheet, cut, side up and return them to the oven. Bake, turning over each cookie halfway through baking, until crisp and golden brown on both sides, about 15 minutes.
  6. Transfer biscotti to wire rack and cool completely. Biscotti can be stored in an airtight container for at least 1 month.

Enjoy!

PS- see, I told you I sometimes write about food, not just music…

“how hangovers work” (via howstuffworks)

1st Jan 11 (Sat) Leave a comment

New music news on Monday from one of my faves… but in case you drank too much last night (like I did), this info may be very helpful for hangover remedies…

Food and Drink Remedies – Fact or Fiction?

Hangover remedies include everything from “a hair of the dog that bit you” (drinking a little more alcohol the next morning), to burnt toast and black coffee to an over-the-counter product like Chaser. Which of all the endless theoretical remedies actually have truth behind them?

Hair of the Dog

Contrary to popular belief, more of the “hair of the dog that bit you” only delays the inevitable. One of the reasons hangovers are so unpleasant is the liver is still processing the toxins left over from alcohol metabolism. Drinking more alcohol can make the symptoms seem to lessen at first but will only make the situation worse once the liver breaks the alcohol down, because it will have even more toxins to deal with.

Conclusion:

  • FICTION – Remedy

Burnt Toast

At first, the burnt toast remedy may seem that it’s actually based on scientific fact. The culprit behind this fictional cure is the carbon in the charred bread. Carbon can act like a filter in the body. While it’s true that activated charcoal (which is a treated form of carbon) is used to treat some types of poisonings, it’s not currently used to treat alcohol poisoning (something that is vastly different from a regular hangover).

The carbon/charcoal found on burnt toast is not the same as activated charcoal.

Conclusion:

  • FICTION – Prevention and Remedy

Black Coffee

Coffee contains a high amount of caffeine, which is a stimulant and therefore helps fight fatigue. But when the caffeine wears off, a drinker may be even more tired than before. Coffee can help alleviate a pounding head because caffeine is a vasoconstrictor, meaning it reduces the size of blood vessels. This counteracts the effect of the alcohol, which makes them swell, making the head hurt in the first place. Unfortunately, caffeine is also a diuretic like alcohol and can make a drinker even more dehydrated than before, thereby increasing the severity of the hangover. Overall, coffee isn’t a good hangover cure.

Conclusion:

  • FICTION – Remedy

Fried or Fatty Foods

Although eating fried or fatty foods the morning after will probably only irritate a drinker’s stomach further, eating them before drinking can actually be helpful. Putting anything in the stomach prior to indulging in alcohol helps prevent a hangover, but fatty foods in particular stick to the stomach lining longer and therefore slow down the absorption of alcohol into the bloodstream. While that might make it take longer to feel the alcohol’s effects, it also gives the body more time to process the byproducts and will increase a drinker’s chances of feeling decent in the morning. So much so, in fact, that a Mediterranean folk tactic is to take a spoonful of olive oil before drinking alcohol. Eating lighter food such as a fruit smoothie will provide energy and alleviate some symptoms by replenishing the electrolytes the body lost from dehydration.

Conclusion:

  • FACT – Prevention
  • FICTION – Remedy

Eggs

Eating eggs the morning after provides energy like any other food, which is the primary benefit. But eggs do also contain large amounts of cysteine, the substance that breaks down the hangover-causing toxin acetaldehyde in the liver’s easily depleted glutathione. Therefore, eggs can potentially help mop up the left-over toxins.

Conclusion:

  • FACT – Remedy

Bananas

Eating bananas the morning after a night of heavy drinking provides lost electrolytes like any food would, but it also specifically replenishes the potassium lost to alcohol’s diuretic effect. Other potassium-rich foods such as kiwi fruit or sports drinks work just as well.

Conclusion:

  • FACT – Remedy

Water

Replenishing the body’s water supply after a night of drinking combats dehydration, and it also helps dilute the leftover byproducts in the stomach. Adding salt and sugar to water helps replace the sodium and glycogen lost the night before. Non-caffeinated, non-carbonated sports drinks can achieve the same effect.

As a prevention method, drinking a glass of water for every alcoholic beverage slows down drinking, providing more time for the body to deal with the alcohol (the body can only process about three-quarters of an ounce of alcohol in an hour). Drinking a few glasses of water before going to bed helps fight dehydration after the body finishes breaking down the alcohol.

Conclusion:

  • FACT – Prevention and Remedy

Fruit Juice

­The fructose — fruit sugar — in fruit juice helps to naturally increase the body’s energy. Studies have proven that it also increases the rate at which the body gets rid of toxins such as those left over from alcohol metabolism. Fruit juice is also a good idea the morning after because it’s high in vitamins and nutrients that were depleted the night before because of alcohol’s diuretic effect. Vitamin supplements high in vitamins C and B are also effective.

Conclusion:

  • FACT – Remedy

Blueberry Dreamin’ – Part 2

23rd Aug 10 (Mon) Leave a comment

…Electric Bugaloo.

OK, so I’ve had a post like this before about something also synthetically blueberry-y… and, no, I’m not “in the pocket” of “Big Pudding.”  While synthetic, and wholly unnatural, this Hunt’s Blueberry Muffin pudding is… well, magical.

Sorry, I’m only human.  It has inspired me to make this recipe for an upcoming Veggie Supper Club.

REVIEW: Stebmo & Skerik’s Maelstrom Trio @ Sam Bond’s Garage (Eugene, OR – – 5/31/08)

1st Jun 08 (Sun) 8 comments

Well, last night started out with a stuffed helping of veg food from our mostly monthly Veggie Supper Club here in Eugene. No FBI agents were in attendance… or were they… hmmm… we made biscotti, sweet potato gnocchi with mondo bizarro sauce. They was also fine wine, eggplant tapenade, flatbread pizzas, a nice chard dish, polenta lasagna, and a freakin’ amazing chocolate dessert. Oh no, my stomach a’splode!

Anyway, I hobbled/waddled over to Sam Bond’s Garage for a night of jazz afterwards. Good thing I was full, too… Sam Bond’s got some killer veggie grub (surprisingly killer for bar food). Before the show I picked up Stebmo’s self-titled CD (with Eyvind Kang, Matt Chamberlain, Tucker Martine, Todd Sickafoose, etc) and one of Skerik’s CDs (with Eyvind Kang, Tim Young, etc). Skerik, running the merch at that time, noticed my Secret Chiefs 3 shirt. \m/

Stebmo (aka Steve Moore) started the night around 10pm. I had heard some of his samples from CDBaby; so I knew a little about his sound. Apparently he’s also played in recent live versions of Sunn O))) & worked with Sufjan Stevens & Bill Frisell… or so says his bio. Though he also plays trombone, his set was comprised of keyboards and electronics/loops. He played 40 minutes and had a good mix of experimental and groove-oriented pieces. Perhaps a bit like the organic/melodic elements of the Album Leaf mixed with the building nature of an Explosions in the Sky set mixed with a heaping handful of electronic jots & tittles like those that may have hit the Kid A cutting room floor. I found his set thoroughly enjoyable, as did most of the packed house (80-100 people is my guess).

Stebmo

Skerik’s Maelstrom Trio is Skerik on tenor sax (from Seattle), Brian Coogan on Hammond B-3 Organ & Simon Lott on drums/trumpet (both from Baton Rouge). I’ve heard of Skerik many times via various NYC downtown scene musicians. The Trio went on around 11pm… I stayed for over an hour of their set (12:15am or so). I wish I could have stayed, but I was BEAT.

Anyway, they started out in the experimental / free jazz realm, but didn’t stay there the whole night. Their set was a plethora of sounds… much of it very groove oriented (probably due to the Hammond B-3 throughout). They seemed to be having fun playing together, too – – which ain’t bad to see. :)

Simon (on drums) was fun to watch… he worked well in both the groove and grooveless/experimental compositions. He also pulled out a tiny trumpet for one of the songs which mixed well with Skerik’s sax. Skerik’s sax sound was nice a full (I guess I’m more familiar with alto sax), and he (again) played a good mix of groove and free jazz. On one of the songs he played what I think was a talk box through his sax which was unique to my concert going experiences thus far. Many a guitar talk box, but nary a sax talk box. Fun stuff…

(not from last night’s show)
