Show Me Vegan Baked Banana Tempura I’ve been dying to make something with the Vietnamese Extra Fancy Cinnamon I picked up from Penzeys Spices. Every time I get a whiff of it, I want to bake something. Something easy but healthy, I decided to try a baked version of banana tempura. I used the batter-baked method from The 30-Minute Vegan. Baked banana tempura isn’t exactly like regular tempura – it’s a lot lighter and there’s not a ton of batter. Baked Banana TempuraServes 2 2 small to medium size bananas 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs Ground cinnamon for dusting Batter 1 1/2 tablespoons ground flax meal 1/2 cup water 1/4 teaspoon baking powder Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine batter ingredients in a bowl and blend well with a whisk. Peel and cut the bananas crosswise into 3/4″ slices. Bake for 4 minutes, flip over and bake another 4 minutes.

Tofu 101: Your Guide To All Things Tofu! Readers, meet tofu. Tofu, meet readers. Welcome to Tofu 101: a guide to the what, why and how of all things tofu. Class is now in session! What Tofu is made similar to cheese, and starts with extracting soy milk from ground, cooked soybeans. The more the tofu is pressed, the firmer it becomes. Silken tofu is great for adding to smoothies or scrambling like eggs, while firm or extra firm (my fave) is best for using in everyday dishes. Why Tofu is a great source of protein for those looking for a meat alternative, and it’s also high in calcium, iron and contains no cholesterol. Plus, it’s so versatile! The nutrition and versatility is great, but the TASTE is what I really love. I also really like eating tofu raw, adding it to cold salads and such. What I’m sure you really want to know though is, what’s the texture like? Now, I use a tofu press to press out even more of the water my extra firm tofu comes packed in, just to get it that much more firm, but it’s totally not necessary. How Wok oil

Vegan Homemade Float Away Eons ago when my sister and I were but wee tots and my parents still exercised the authority to restrict my intake of sweets, I remember the harshest restrictions being placed on soda. Occasional candies and chocolates were okay, but soda? Only once a year, on New Year’s Eve were my sister and I allowed the pleasure of the bubbly liquid. Thinking about this small aspect of my childhood, I wanted to make something special to celebrate a small vacation from school, wherein my sister would get the chance to come and visit for a few days. That’s right, the newest incarnation of my beloved rootbeer float is now embodied by ever-popular cupcake, albeit much more animal-friendly than the original. Admittedly, there is a bit more labor involved than the simple soda-and-ice cream float had demanded, but be patient; It’s completely worth it.

— Irreverent Vegan Fatfree Vegan Recipes A brownie by any other name… | King Arthur Flour - Baking Banter Love brownies. Love their shiny, flaky top that shatters into micro-thin shards that shower onto your fingers as you eat. Love their dark, gooey center. Sometimes can’t deal with the bake, wait to cool, cutting into squares messiness and fuss of brownies. Every time I make these cookies (which, truth be told, is quite often), I think of a former colleague, Ana, who left King Arthur last year in order to be a full-time mom to her 2-year-old twins. The test kitchen bakers loved Ana. Ana still visits occasionally, 2-year-olds in tow. And when she does, she’ll invariably nose out any chocolate, and treat us to her classic reaction: “Perfect! These cookies are basically brownies: flat, round, 2 ½” brownies. First task: Combine the chocolate and butter. Melt in the microwave till softened… …then stir till smooth. Stir the chocolate into eggs and sugar, which you’ve beaten together. Add the remaining ingredients–including chocolate chips, for an over-the-top chocolate experience. Buy vs.
