miso soup that was so good I wondered why it had been so long since I made it. E and Sylvia didn't want it so I enjoyed it two nights in a row.
apple slice. I have made it a few times. The last time it seemed quite sweet. I decided to make it vegan by using a flax egg (1 tbsp linseed meal or flax meal and 3 tbsp water) and then I had half white and half wholemeal flour, and only added half the sugar. It was nice but a bit dry and crumbly.
fast track sourdough pizza base. Great nostalgic comfort food.
Fruit is on the wane at this time of year. I stewed quite a few plums over autumn but the last batch of plums I bought a few weeks back were so bad I had to throw out most of them. Now the apples aren't quite as crisp as at the height of autumn and I have started to stew some of them. I never used to be into stewing fruit but both Sylvia and I are loving it.
Vegetable Bean Casserole and finally made it for dinner. I changed around the vegies and added tofu bacon. It was really good but I baked it in a rush without breadcrumbs and without an opportunity to photograph the final dish.
Doughnut Time treats to take home instead: Life on Mars (Rich milk chocolate glaze, topped with chocolate flakes and Mars pieces), Kris (Strawberry glaze with strawberry cheesecake filling, milky bar, jelly belly, sugar flower and gold leaf), and It's Always a GayTime (Milk chocolate glaze, crushed biscuits, golden caramelised crepes and filled with honeycomb custard!) They were really rich and gooey. I loved the Mars Bar one best.
But I could never go vegan by blending it with broccoli to make soup. I found I had to add a few seasonings to get it right, yet it was still a quick way to make a tasty lunch. Great with crisp pear and a food magazine.
choc chip cookies with coconut condensed milk. I made an effort to underbake rather than overbake. They were nice but a wee bit soft and I wasn't sure if it was that they were vegan or that they could have had another minute or two in the oven. We loved them nevertheless.
