    so it's become clear that food and drink is an important subject on this board. that's why i've decided to make a thread to share recipes--like the sauce thread, but more diverse. these recipes aren't limited to vegan/vegetarian, we don't want anyone excluded. at the same time, let's try to be respectful to each other.

    this thread may fail miserably, but we'll see what happens.You're purposefully attempting to sabotage my degree project. Thanks.

    Mango Chutney Chicken

    Ingredients:
    4 chicken breasts, 1 Jar of Mango Chutney from Trader Joes, Soy Sauce, Vegetable Broth, Garlic Powder, Ginger, Pepper, Flour

    These are the directions for a slow cooker, but you can make this pretty well in the oven too.

    Cut chicken into cubes. Coat lightly in flour. In slow cooker, add mango chutney, garlic powder, a dash of ginger, pepper. Add chicken. Pour in some soy sauce and vegetable broth so that the chicken is going to stay moist when cooked. Cook for 2-4 hours.

    This is pretty good with jasmine rice, as well as broccoli or sautéed bell peppers.

    I'll post some pictures tomorrow since I'm cooking it then.clockwork ted: this is my favorite thread. sweet BJ alexi!

    if you like waffles/pancakes, MAKE CREPES!
    theyre real easy to make.
    1~2 cups flour, 4~6 eggs, some sugar (personal pref), vanilla, butter 250~400g. oh and 250cl of milk (1 1/2 cups i think??)
    you can even turn them into pancakes or waffles if youre not happy, or add salt in the batter and theyre lunch crepes.
    then add butter and nutella or jam or chocolate or sugar or bananas or liquor.
    splash grand marnier on it when its in the pan, light it.. FLAMBéE !! yumyum and you can drink whatever you didnt use for the flambée

    candied pears:

    take 1/2 bottle of cheap white wine; put in a sauce-pot with about 1/2 cup of raw sugar, ginger, and apple cider (or orange zest).
    (the raw sugar is key, refined sugar gets waaaaaaay to saccharine-sweet).
    add peeled, halved, cored pears. the wine should cover the pears just barely. (scale the amount of wine + additives for more pears. feel free to be non-precise).
    simmer the pears in the wine until they are fork-tender. it'll take about 45 minutes for un-ripe anjou pears, and less the more ripe they are. don't do this with dripping ripe pears.
    then remove the pears (cool them).
    add another cup of raw sugar to the wine and reduce (simmer/boil off the liquid while stirring constantly to get a nice sauce).
    spoon warm reduction over pears and serve.

    you can add berries to the wine also, or use a red wine with a different set of additives (like molasses and cinnamon).

    yeah, I'm vegan. I'm just so out of the whole cooking thing from living in a kitchen-less dorm all year. But here's my favorite cookie recipe (from The Garden of Vegan):

    Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies!
    3/4 cup flour
    1/2 cup sugar
    2 cups rolled oat flakes
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 banana
    1/3 cup olive oil
    1/2 cup maple syrup
    1 tbsp vanilla extract
    a shit ton of chocolate chips (or 1- 1.5 cups if you follow the recipe)

    preheat oven to 350. Stir together the dry ingredients. Blend the banana, oil, syrup, and vanilla in a blender or food processor. Pour wet mixture into dry mixture and stir. Add chocolate chips and mix 'em up. Spoon big ol' tablespoons of dough onto a cookie sheet, and bake for 12-15 minutes. The book says it makes 10-14 cookies, but I must make them way too small because I usually get around 25-30.

    Megan the Vegan always has great recipes, and links to like 50 other vegan blogs on the right side of the page.

    One of my favorite recipes is Shakshouka:
    Some chopped up tomatoes, bell peppers, onions
    A bit of olive oil
    One can tomato paste
    Eggs

    Basically you mix up and simmer everything but the eggs so that it forms a yummy tomato stew. Season to taste. Then when the stew is good and stewy, make little holes in it, crack the eggs into the holes and cover. Let the eggs cook in the stew. I like them runny but you can do whatever.

    If you want to be authentic serve with pita bread. You can make it a little more Italian by putting some garlic in the stew and serving with rolls and ricotta cheese. Sometimes I'll put some sour cream on the side. Lots of options.
  9.  
    i made colcannon last night:

    2 lbs potatoes (i used red potatoes, kept the skins on)
    1 lb curly kale
    1 large onion (i used a white onion)
    4 cloves garlic
    3 tbsp butter
    milk or cream to consistency
    1/2 tsp of nutmeg
    salt and pepper to taste

    boil lightly salted water in a large pot. dice garlic cloves and onions, and put in a pan with the butter. roughly chop kale, removing the stems. saute with garlic and onions. it'll seem like a lot at first, but it's not. keep an eye on it, and turn it so nothing gets burned. set aside when sufficiently cooked, keep warm. quarter the potatoes and add them to the boiling water. when soft enough, kill the heat and drain the potatoes. return them to the pot and mash 'em like they're 'frisco hills. add milk or cream, make sure the potatoes aren't lumpy. add kale, onions, and garlic to potatoes, mix well. add nutmeg, salt, and pepper. enjoy.

    this could easily be made vegan:

    replace butter with maybe 1-2 tbsp olive oil. replace milk with soymilk; i hear vegetable broth could work, as well.

    this recipe makes a lot, but it's delicious. in ireland they make it on halloween and hide little prizes in it. i also read that you can make it into patties and fry 'em up the next day, but i haven't tried it yet.You're purposefully attempting to sabotage my degree project. Thanks.

    mix dry ingredients well to spread baking powder throughout. add water to desired consistency. let sit 10 minutes. use minimal vegetable oil in pan, cook on low until pancakes start to bubble and cook through. flip.

    sorry, i was unclear, i was drinking this morning.

    I hear alot of people talking about how they go vegetarian or vegan, and how they now cook for themselves alot more often. But a really common thing that i hear about from many of those same people is primarily about cooking sweets. I'm sure the diet consists of more. But really, pancakes and cookies aren't great food, and they aren't good for you,either.bake em' away, toys

    It's because any non-vegan can walk into any store and have their sweets craving taken care of. But nearly all baked goods are non-vegan. Also, vegan baking is an art that's far from perfected, so people tend to trade and talk about those recipes the most. Steamed broccoli is pretty much steamed broccoli. Not too difficult. Candied ginger and macadamia nut carrot cake, on the other had, a little trickier.Word nerd

    non-vegan meat:

    Korean Beef/Thai Stir-fry Combo (tko)

    1. Take thinly-sliced sirloin (or tofu and dried mushrooms, if it does it for you) and make a spicy Korean beef marinade: sesame oil, soy sauce, chili peppers (jalapeno or habanero + some seeds), sugar

    2. Lightly fry generous amounts of minced garlic and ginger in sesame oil: add beef/tofu/mushrooms.

    3. While the protein is browning, make up your sauce: sesame oil, peanut butter, tamarind paste, soy sauce, lime juice, siracha or red pepper to taste

    4. Add chopped onions to the browned protein; saute; add your sauce.

    5. Add green onions or sundry other vegetables.

    6. Serve over a bed of rice noodles or vermicelli with spinach, cilantro, mint, lime and peanuts (or any combination thereof; including other raw vegetables). Goes well with beer.

    currently making:

    roasted butternut squash soup

    Ingredients

    * 1 (1 1/2 pound) butternut squash, peeled seeded and rough chopped
    * 3 tablespoons olive oil
    * 3/4 teaspoon salt
    * 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    * 1/4 cup Italian sausage, removed from the casing
    * 1 cup small dice onion
    * 1/2 cup small dice carrot
    * 1/2 cup small dice celery
    * 1/2 cup small dice leeks
    * 2 tablespoons minced shallots
    * 1 tablespoon minced garlic
    * 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
    * 11/2 quarts chicken stock
    * 2 teaspoons maple syrup
    * 1 teaspoon fresh chopped sage leaves

    Directions

    Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

    Place the chopped squash in a medium-size mixing bowl. Drizzle the squash with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil and place the squash on top of the sheet pan. Set the sheet pan into the oven and roast for 30 minutes, or until the squash is lightly caramelized and tender.

    Remove the squash from the oven and set aside. Place a 1-gallon saucepan over medium high heat and add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pan and render the Italian sausage. Cook, stirring often until the meat is caramelized and has released most of its fat, about 3 minutes. Add the onions, carrots, celery and leeks in the pan and sweat, stirring often for 5 to 7 minutes. Add the shallots and garlic to the pan and sweat for 1 minute stirring continuously. Deglaze the pan with the vinegar and add the chicken stock to the pan. Place the squash in the pan with the maple syrup and sage.

    Bring the pan to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Continue to cook the soup for 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are all tender. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup to a smooth consistency and velvety texture. Alternately, you can puree the soup in batches using a blender. Taste the soup and re-season if necessary with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.

    (i've made it vegan/vegetarian friendly.)

    i'm also roasting the seeds with some olive oil, salt, pepper, and hot sauce.

    Veganism is healthy. I would love to have an intelligent conversation with anyone that thinks otherwise.


    I made this the other night.

    2 cups of cooked quinoa
    two heaping scoops of cashew butter
    tamari to taste
    1 tablespoon of honey (can also substitute agave but i would be careful cause that stuff is SWEET)

    I use quinoa because it is a complete protein (it has a balanced set of essential amino acids)
    I make steamed kale and fried carrots to go on top. The kale looses its bitter taste after a couple minutes of being cooked but it retains most of its nutrients. The carrots work great when i burn them a bit in a cast iron pan. I cook em for about 20 minutes on low to med heat then turn it up at the end and watch em so they don't burn too much. Add a little salt and you're good to go.

    the BEST BANANA BREAD ever, thanks to the Post Punk Kitchen, http://www.theppk.com/recipes/dbrecipes/index.php?RecipeID=121

    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cups white sugar
    1/2 cup margarine, at room temp (or, for extra yums, go half margarine, half apple sauce)
    3 very ripe bananas, mashed well
    2 cups flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 cup vanilla soy milk, mixed with 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon allspice
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a 8x4 bread pan with non stick cooking spray, or lightly coat with margarine.

    Sift together flour, baking soda, salt and spices.

    Cream together the margarine and sugars. Add bananas, soy milk and vanilla.

    Add the wet ingredients to the dry. Mix well. Pour batter into pan. Bake for an hour to an hour 10 minutes.


    I also like to add blue agave nectar or honey , and dark chocolate chips or whatever else happens to be in my pantry.
    the jewish mother in me feels the need to make this weekly to feed my starving friends. enjoy!
