In one of her most recent care packages, my mom included a few boxes of hippy-dippy cereal that I totally got hooked on herunterladen. It’s not exactly a cereal in the traditional sense of the word – or at least not how I think of it – but rather a mix of cereal-type flakes, nuts, dried fruit, and granola kostenlos musik über handy downloaden. It’s almost like a granola mix watered down with cereal. Anyway, it’s sweet and delicious and even though I extended its life by mixing it in sparingly with my bran flakes – just enough to spice them up – it was gone way too soon minecraft mods sicher downloaden.

I decided to approximate the experience by making my own granola-cereal mashup. This recipe has all the regular granola ingredients – rolled oats, dried fruit, nuts – along with a few types of store-bought cereal, just for fun antivirus programm kostenlos downloaden vollversion ipad. Normally I go with dried cranberries or homemade apple slices for the fruit portion of the mix, but I just couldn’t resist trying out the dried blueberries gifted to me by Gourmet Nuts and Dried Fruit mahjong dimensions kostenlosen! (If you worry that your dried fruit will get a little too dry during baking, you can always mix it in at the end.)

Though this stuff takes the better part of an afternoon to make, the end result is so worth it: sweet* and savory granola, made to your own specifications, and for a fraction of the price of store-bought stuff word 2010 kostenlos downloaden ohne key. The cornucopia of fruit, nuts, and other goodies in this granola really make it stand out from some of the other versions I’ve made. And yes, it works wonders for ye ole boring bran flakes google earth 3d modelle herunterladen!

* But not too sweet: if you really want a cavity-maker, double the maple syrup, or add in a few tablespoons of brown sugar!

Candle Cafe’s Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Almond Cream and Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

2014-10-24 - VHC Butternut Squash Soup - 0001 [flickr]

My very first dish from Vegan Holiday Cooking kindle books as pdf! I decided to make it a practical one, so I chose a recipe that requires two of my current arch nemeses (butternut squash and apples, which are conspiring to make my fridge/freezer burst open at the seams) anschreiben bewerbung herunterladen. Seasoned with cinnamon, sage, rosemary, and chile powder, this Roasted Butternut Squash Soup is topped with an almond cream, as well as pumpkin seeds toasted with lemon juice and cinnamon herunterladen.

The soup is hella tasty and easy to make; no problems there. The almond cream was a little trickier; mine didn’t get terribly creamy and didn’t look much like that in the fancy gourmet food photo herunterladen. Actually the difference in aesthetics isn’t terribly surprising; my almonds had their skins intact, hence the variation in color. But it also seemed a little heavier that Candle Cafe’s version, even with extra water added firefox kostenlos downloaden deutsch. When I plopped a little into the soup using an ice cream scoop, it just sank right to the bottom, with only a tiny bit staying afloat. Kind of like an iceberg herunterladen! It still tasted great, though; ultimately I just blended the unused cream with the leftover soup and enjoyed them as one. Why use two containers when one will suffice herunterladen?

Also, you might notice that those are not pumpkin seeds perched atop the almond cream. Right you are! I didn’t have any, so I subbed in pecans instead minions zumen. I think they worked just as well.

My to-do list for Vegan Holiday Cooking is more than a dozen items long, so stay tuned for more!

Fall Harvest Butternut Squash with Almond-Pecan Parmesan

2014-09-25 - OSG Fall Harvest Squash - 0003 [flickr]

You guys, if I hadn’t already given The Oh She Glows Cookbook five stars, I’d do it on the merits of this recipe alone microsoft works gratis downloaden nederlands. SO GOOD! Yet so simple!

It’s basically just butternut squash (duh!), diced and roasted with garlic, parsley, kale (not pictured here; I was all out!), and a chunky parmesan mixture of nutritional yeast, almonds, and pecans videos mit kodi downloaden. Since I omitted the kale and roasted the nuts ahead of time, I was able to skip the second, shorter round of roasting altogether.

Liddon recommends serving this with Field Roast’s Smoked Apple Sage Sausage to upgrade it from a side to a meal, but I found that Tofurky’s Chicken Apple flavor works just as well Age of empire free download. Simple pan-fry it, fold into the finished squash, and enjoy!

Serves two very hungry, very gluttonous adults.

Raw tarts cannot ebooks! Aka the easiest tarts you’ll ever make!

This is another recipe from Rawlicious in Toronto schriftartenen und installieren. The no-bake crust – perfect for this Missouri week, when the temps topped out at 90F – is really simple: just almonds, shredded coconut, and coconut oil praxissoftware kostenlos downloaden.

(Though I recommend doubling it; I barely had enough for four 4″ tarts; 3 1/2″ if you measure at the base. At first I thought that maybe my tarts were bigger than the author’s but I seemed to have just the right amount of filling for four tarts millimeterpapier downloaden. So.)

The filling is pretty easy, too: avocados, lime juice, and a few other goodies. Pro tip: it calls for psyllium as a thickener, but I swapped it out for xanthan gum without a problem facebook downloaden kostenlos deutsch.

Blend, fill, chill. Enjoy. The end.

The filling is actually pretty great on its own, too; when chilled, it resembles pudding spotify musik über mobile daten herunterladen.

Crispy Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

(Say that five times fast…and you get a cookie!)

2014-02-16 - OSG Almond Butter Cookies - 0004 [flickr]

So this was my first time making gluten free-cookies – or at least that I’m aware of – and I’m happy to report that it was not, in point o’ facts, a disaster tubemate kostenlos downloaden. Actually it was super-easy, so much so that the fact that these cookies are GF didn’t even register until the next day. (I know, tsk tsk on me for not reading the entire recipe before tackling it herunterladen! IT SAYS SO RIGHT IN THE INTRO!)

I was more worried about using the hand mixer, since we don’t exactly have an amiable relationship. Seriously, most of our outings end up with a kitchen covered in cookie dough/mashed potatoes/whathaveyou and me crying on the floor herunterladen. Usually Shane has to step in to finish the job and prevent me from having a breakdown. But this time around? Smooth sailing. Maybe the beaters just prefer almond and oat flour to whole wheat herunterladen? Who knows!

These Crispy Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies are so good that they almost (almost!) make up for the fact that they are the only cookies to be found in The Oh She Glows Cookbook (boo karaoke songs gratis herunterladen! cookies are the only dessert worth making! I’m telling Cookie Monster on you!). In place of wheat flour, there’s almond and oat, along with almond butter and chocolate chips stemmen downloaden tomtom gratis. Mine came out thin, with just the right crispy-to-chewy factor.

You’re supposed to roll ’em into balls, but the dough was sticky enough that I spooned it instead, with no real issues herunterladen. I guess they’re not as perfectly round as they could be, but who cares? My taste buds sure don’t.

Lemon-Pine Nut Rice

2013-03-19 - VI Lemon-Pine Nut Rice - 0002

Lemon-Pine Nut* Rice from Donna Klein’s Vegan Italiano vlc download for free german windows 10. Quick, easy, filling. Even faster if you swap out the scallions for a quarter of an onion. Scallions, why are you always such a slimy pita?

* You got me history! Those are really almonds, not pine nuts, which I don’t really care for. In other changes, the rice wasn’t quite as lemony as expected, so I added some lemon zest for that extra sour kick herunterladen. Muy bueno!

2013-02-16 - VI Rotini w Zucchini & Almonds - 0004

If it seems like I’m eating a ton of pasta lately, that’s because I am runtastic daten herunterladen! This dish is the Farfalle with Zucchini, Mint, and Almonds from Donna Klein’s Vegan Italiano – but with rotini in place of bow ties and using the basil variation suggested by Klein juwelen spiele kostenlos downloaden deutsch. Ridiculously good, and a most excellent use of zucchini, too. You dice and boil a few zucchinis until tender, and then combine three quarters of the zukes with basil, almonds, and some other goodies in the food processor to make a saucy pesto-esque topping download the German hitmix for free. SO GOOD!

I’ll have to remember this come summer, when my fridge overfloweth with zucchini. With a few tweaks, I could easily transform this into a gravy for the dogs’ food herunterladen. Hello, immersion blender!
