A break from your regularly scheduled programming to bring you…food from other peoples’ recipes! I spent today getting an emergency root canal and as half of my face is still numb, there were not many cooking adventures in my life. This also gives me a chance to use up some of the photos of goodies I’ve made saved up on my hard-drive. But come on, look at the dough up there. How could you not want to eat these:
Chocolate Chip Apricot scones. I used the basic scone recipe from Vegan Brunch, but had some dried apricots to us up hence this variation. Chocolate and apricot makes a great combination, by the way. I chopped and soaked the apricots in warm water while I was mixing the dough to be sure they were moist and delicious! I brought these babies to a tea party. Perfect.
One of my friends served me homemade coleslaw this summer and it blew my mind. I always thought of coleslaw and soggy mayo soaked cabbage, but I was wrong! When my housemate brought home some dumpstered cabbage, I knew it was time! I’ve used this recipe from Healthy. Happy. Life. twice now and am a big fan! The first time with the apples called for and the second without, both times substituting pecans because that’s what I had. Celery salt is my new fav.
Last, but not least is this Chickpea Scramble I made once from VegWeb. Freaked out by tofu? Trying to serve breakfast to someone who is allergic to soy? Voila! I’m pretty sure I substituted the Tofutti for tahini. This will be in my future again soon, I’m sure.
