Gingerbread Biscotti

Posted on

I used this basic recipe, but modified it according to some advice in the comments. Specifically:

  • I replaced the oil with butter
  • I added 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • I first mixed the dry ingredients, then worked in the butter, then added the wet ingredients
  • I added a bit of water as needed

It was appreciated by the people I made it for.


Green Beans and Snow Peas with Hazelnut and Orange

Posted on

I couldn’t find French beans as instructed in the recipe, so I substituted flat green beans and cooked them a little longer. I also could only find hazelnuts which had already been roasted. This is surprisingly good, and the hazelnuts should not be left out. I used flax oil in place of hazelnut oil.

Spinach “Alfredo” Linguine

This recipe comes from One-Dish Vegan by Robin Robertson. It is made creamy with plant milk and mashed white beans. I thought this was rather bland. I added pine nuts to try to perk it up but it didn’t help.

Muscovado Roasted Plantains

I got this recipe from Afro-Vegan by Bryant Terry. I used less sugar and more maple syrup.

Blistered Shishito Peppers with Garlic and Ginger

Posted on

I used this recipe. The addition of ginger makes this different from many of the other charred peppers I have tasted. The leftovers were nice in a salad.

French Pumpkin Soup

This creamy soup can easily be made vegan. I simply substituted oat cream for the half and half, replaced the chicken broth with vegetable broth, and left out the butter and cheese toast.

Paprika Carrots

This recipe comes from Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure by Lorna Sass. I used purple and white carrots to get these hues. It also contains sweet red pepper.
