Veggie Tacos


Tonight I made some veggie tacos with sauteed red peppers and onions (both organic from the farmer's market) on soft corn tortillas. For the beans on the side I drained a can of black beans and put them in a saucepan. Then I added a bit of salsa, a bay leaf, some olive oil, a small amount of water, and a dash of sherry. I let them simmer as long as the peppers and onions took to soften and brown a bit. I placed the soft corn tortillas in foil and put them in the toaster oven on 200 for about 10 minutes. Served them with guacamole, shredded romaine and tomatoes with a little hot sauce. Super easy and delicious.

Mini Chocolate Cupcake with Peanut Butter Frosting


Here is the recipe adapted from the PPK!

Ingredients
1 cups flour
1/4 cup Dutch processed cocoa
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 + 1/8 cup soy milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 oz semi sweet chocolate, chopped

Directions
Melt the chocolate in the microwave (1 minutes high heat) or my preferred way - a makeshift double broiler (boil some water in a small sauce pot, put a small saute pan over the sauce pot, lower heat, add chocolate, stir occasionally with a plastic spatula until melted ), let cool.

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cocoa, set aside.

Whisk together wet ingredients (oil through vanilla) until foamy. Add wet ingredients to dry and combine. Fold in melted chocolate.

Line 16 (or possibly more) muffin tins with cupcake liner. Pour batter in, filling cup 3/4 of the way.

Bake at 350 20-25 minutes, until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.

The frosting is peanut butter plus slightly warmed soymilk, a dab of earth balance and powdered sugar to the desired consistency.

PS- don't forget the oil like I did!

Vegan Challah


I tried this recipefrom the PPK and it was absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend it to anyone who misses challah as a vegan. We ate about 5 pieces each when it came out of the oven. Coudn't help it. Light, fluffy, everything I've always wanted in a bread.
