I love it when vegan-minded people come to visit, as was the case today.
It gives me a reason to experiment, adapt, convert and expand some of my recipes and even more enjoyable, invent new ones.
This morning – sticky multi-fruity, glistening vegan muffins containing apple (pureed as a substitute for the egg), banana, blueberries aplenty, lemon and orange rind, coconut milk and extra virgin olive oil.
After baking they were glazed with a little maple syrup and briefly re-baked to set that glaze.
A week or so agoI had purchased a container of firm tofu. Husband Robert was unimpressed, considers it inedible.
However, today I made this tofu slice, topped it with a maple barbecue glaze and vegan “cheeses”, one of them a homemade vegan “Parmesan”.
Served to him for lunch in a fresh-baked bread roll with plenty of salad, he pronounced it delicious. I will take that as a win then – he certainly would not have said it lightly.
Happy to post recipes if anyone is interested.
