Vegetable Lasagna Cupcakes

Vegetable Lasagna Cupcakes
How about a couple of cupcakes for dinner? I haven’t made lasagna in ages but after seeing the oh-so-cute Petite Lasagnas at Can You Stay For Dinner?, I just had to make a vegan version. Super easy to make using wonton wrappers, the mini lasagnas bake in about ten minutes or so. I didn’t bother to replace the meat in the sauce called for in the original recipe, I just went with vegetables – fresh shiitake mushrooms and baby zucchini from the farmers market. Once cool enough to handle, you can actually pick one up and eat it without a fork. I only wish the Daiya cheese was a little more melted (I would have left it in the oven for a bit longer but the tips of the wontons were getting to be pretty brown and I have a very touchy smoke detector). Vegetable Lasagna CupcakesMakes 12 24 wonton wrappers 1 cup pasta sauce or spaghetti sauce 1/4 cup of your favorite cheese To make the vegetable filling, heat a wok or sauté pan to hot. Next, make the tofu ricotta. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Spinach Tofu Patties - StumbleUpon I love vegetarian burgers because they're usually packed with lots of vegetables and other yummy ingredients, and there are so many ways to enjoy them - you can put them in between a bun and dress them up with your favourite toppings, but they are often just as good or even better on their own, without the bun! These patties definitely fit into the latter category. They are so flavourful that I preferred to just eat them with a fork rather than hiding them in a bun underneath other toppings. The patties themselves are actually made with tofu, but you would probably never guess just by looking at them (and you could probably serve these to a tofu-hater without them knowing either!) They are also filled with spinach and asian flavours like sesame oil and soy sauce. I decided to add some peanut butter to mine too, to go with a sort of asian peanut sauce theme. Spinach Tofu Patties Adapted from Joanne of Eats Well With Others, as seen on Marcus Samuelsson's Blog Makes enough for 4 patties.

How to Make Bagels: A Users Manual at While making bagels may seem challenging to home cooks, it's actually not as complicated as you might think. But before we get into the specific recipe and bagel-making process, let's explore a few urban myths: Do You Need a Special Type of Flour to Make Bagels? No. Is Barley Malt Syrup Essential to That Distinctive Bagel Taste? Yes and no. Barley malt syrup is available at most supermarkets, but if you can't find it, use brown rice syrup, honey, or agave. Can You Make Good Bagels in One Day? While not a difficult or labor-intensive process, bagel making is a two-day affair. The other reason for bagels' tight crumb is the fact that the dough is usually not given a first rise or fermentation, but is instead shaped immediately after it's mixed and then placed in a cool place such as a refrigerator or proofing box (anywhere that's about 40°F or colder) to slowly ferment overnight. Must True Bagels Be Boiled or Can They Be Steamed?

A very Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends!! Onto the food… I have mentioned a few times how much I love Jamie Oliver. So I bought all the ingredients to make the meal and went to town. Now that I am on my own healthful culinary journey (this blog) I needed to revisit this recipe. This recipe, as with Jamie’s version, is all about the timing.

Broccoli Spinach Quinoa Soup If you caught my post early last week, you may remember the chocolate craving that got in the way of me making this soup. I can’t say the craving ever really went away – I ate all of those chocolate covered apples and am wanting more – but I did finally get around to making this soup. I hope you will agree that is was worth the wait! I rarely make soup and when I do I want it to be packed with flavor. You know what else? I know this because I’ve been completely obsessed with baked potatoes lately. I should mention that this is a pretty thick soup, because that is how I like soup.
