Honey-Baked Lentil Recipe

Posted on October 3, 2010 at 12:23 PM Comments comments (0)

Just tried a delicious meal last night: Honey-Baked Lentils


Came across it at the following blog: http://thetobyshow.typepad.com/the_toby_show/2008/07/honey-baked-lentils.html


I only had regular soy sauce so I added a little extra sugar, and added a little cayenne pepper at the end to give it some kick.


Easy and delicious!

The Chia Seed

Posted on March 28, 2010 at 10:48 AM Comments comments (0)

I recently read about the consumption of chia seeds in the amazing book Born to Run. Just bought my first bag of them at Whole Foods, and have been eating 1-2 teaspoons a day mixed with various foods. 


Here are a few links for more information and recipes:

BBQ Pomegranate Tofu - Unique and Delicious

Posted on January 31, 2010 at 11:57 AM Comments comments (0)

I posted a reference to this dish months and months ago under my Recipes and Such page, but I love it so much I just had to spread the word again.


The recipe is in a wonderful cookbook, Vegan With a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz (seriously, buy it), but it's also posted here: 46 Days of Vegetarianism: BBQ Pomegranate Tofu

'Waffle of Insane Greatness'...

Posted on January 31, 2010 at 11:17 AM Comments comments (0)

So, I just tried out a delicious waffle recipe and loved it.


Waffle of Insane Greatness recipe


Nice and crispy on the outside, soft on the inside...  I added half of a very ripe banana, and substituted the milk with almond milk (and only added 3/4 cup of it, due to the banana addition). I also added an 1/8 cup steel-cut oats. The batter was a little runny, but still turned out well; next time I will probably add a little whole wheat flour or more oats.

A plethora of delicious recipes...

So my wonderful cousin sent me some amazing recipes and links to their sources... enjoy!

 



Granola


The original recipe is from King Arthur, but like I said....I adjusted a few things. This is for a small batch, you can double it if you want more! Just make sure to cook it on 2 baking sheets, and rotate them when stirring every 15 minutes.


2 1/2 cups rolled oats

1 cup rolled wheat

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut

1/2 cup wheat germ

1/2 cup almonds, broken up

1/2 cup pecans, broken up

1/2 cup walnuts, broken up

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup pure maple syrup

1/4 cup brown rice syrup

1/4 cup organic virgin coconut oil

1/2 Tbsp pure vanilla


Mix dry together. Combine liquids and pour over dry. Mix well. Spread onto baking sheet. Bake at 250 degrees, stirring every 15 minutes for 1 hour, or until dry. Remove from oven and let sit until completely cooled and dry before storing in an airtight container. Before serving sprinkle with dried fruit.

 


I love this with regular milk or almond milk. Also, you can sub raw sunflower seeds, or any other kind of nut for the one's I mentioned in the recipe.


                                                                                                                                                                           

 


Also, on viveleveganrecipes.blogspot.com I enjoy her Cashew Banana Ice Cream recipe. It has bananas, cashew butter, pure maple syrup and some salt in it.

 


I don't remember if I found this recipe on that same website or if it is one of Ani Phyo's. Called Raw Snickers. You use dates and macadamias. Split open the date and fill with 2 macadamias. You then dip the date in a chocolate mixture made of: Equal parts coconut oil, cocoa powder, and honey (or agave), a little bit of vanilla and a touch of salt. This needs to be heated on the stove or in the microwave. Dip the date and then set it on wax paper. I store these in the fridge, and love them.
