#fennel theme 15th May 2014

Hello Lovelies!

Welcome to another ’round up’ from #veganrecipehour! Our theme on 15th May was #fennel! This included both the bulb and seeds. One of the issues that arose on the night was that many people felt they should be using this sweet, flavoursome aromatic veg a bit more! Lets hope we can inspire!

I personally didn’t like #fennel for many years. Or at least didn’t think I did! But, I stand by my belief that, one can usually find a cooking (or not=eat raw!) method that agrees with our taste buds! Its just a matter of finding out how YOU like to eat it! I found that I prefer fennel (bulb) wither griddled and cooked quickly so that it caramelizes and goes sweet and yummy! Or, slow cooked in a #Tagine is so yummy!. I Love to throw the seeds into a #cabbage/#kale and #leek stirfry or into Veggie soups. For me, it gives it that tasty ‘lift’. I also really enjoy a #fennel #tea. Here is a DIY guide!

Image#Fennel Foeniculum vulgare is actually part of the #celery family and is a hardy perennial Herb. It is used in the famous drink #Absinthe. #Fennel is frequently used as a breath freshener, after dinner digestive and to treat flatulence!

#Fennel is very low in calories its pretty high in #fibre and has no #cholesterol! Its also #heart friendly! Providing helpful levels of the electrolyte potassium. Helps combat High blood pressure!

So, lets press on with these wonderful recipe suggestions!

Thank you once again to the wonderful @ephemerienne for these lovely ideas! ‘#Tomato and #fennel #soup‘, ‘ #Fennel and #Pear #Salad‘, and ‘#tofu Babette’, thank you! 

Some amazing recipes were suggested by @SasonalShaheen. This one sound so tasty! ‘Fennel and #blackolive #risotto‘ Another Risotto recipe suggestion came in from @Theflexitarian. This one is a bit different as it uses #Quinoa. It has none Vegan ingredients but these can very easily be substituted. It seemed a shame not to share such an interesting idea!

How about this recipe idea? ‘Bulgur wheat salad with fennel, sweetcorn and apple’ as suggested by @Vegsoup4thesoul. What an amazing blend of flavours!

An absolultely fabulous suggestion was shared by @elenabedfordfennel & brown rice sushi’ That looks and sounds sooo nice!

Check out this #blog entry from @VeganChatRoom. Its all about their trip to the @WildebeestCafe in #Falmouth Featuring a ‘#Chestnut, #fennel #Tarragon #Ravioli’ Wow!

How about an amazingly hearty sounding suggestion of ‘Chard and Fennel with Blackeyed beans from @SeasonalShaheen?!

Fancy a bit of #couscous? This ‘Garlicky #sausage and #potato with #fennel#’ recipe will hit the spot! Or a lovely ‘#fennel and #chickpea #tagine‘ From @fullbelliesOAB.

These are simply superb! ‘#fennel and #seitan Dogs‘ From @veganYackAttack via @veganfoodchat.

You can catch up with more amazing suggestions and chat on twitter if you search #veganrecipehour or follow us @veganrecipehour.

Lets round it off this week with some fab quotes from the night…Happy #fennel eating all!

@VeganDiaries #Fennel :my favorite is to sauté it with black greek olives, simple!’

@SeasonalShaheen I tend to enjoy #Fennel fresh, thinly sliced in salads, but I do cook with it sometimes.’

@TheFlexitarian love #fennel raw just sliced in salad. Also lovely roasted with olives & tomatoes (a la Provencale)..’

@LeicVeggie Not a recipe per say but I love pizza topped w/roasted fennel & onion, kalamata olives, tomato sauce & portobello shrooms’

@vegsoup4thesoul Top tip for preparing fennel to roast. Hollow out with an apple corer, trim base flat so it stands up, add white wine!’

@vegsoup4thesoul Flavour-wise #fennel goes beautifully roast alongside carrots & parsnips :)’

@vegsoup4thesoul Fresh #fennel is lovely in coleslaws & in a simple salad w watercress & thinly sliced oranges (little hemp oil to dress)’

@M0nsterG1rl Thinly sliced fennel&apple, covered in fresh lemon juice & a sprinkling of salt.Can’t get enough of it-super fresh&juicy!’

#rhubarb theme 8th may 2014

Welcome to the #veganrecipehour round up! The theme for Thursday 8th May was #Rhubarb. It was really interesting reading how we all use it and quite often, wished we used it more! We are smack bang in season so, what better way to celebrate than eating it!

ImageA little bit about Rhubarb... It turns out that Rhubarb or Rheum rhabarbarum,has quite a history. Earliest records date back to China in 2700 BC where it was primarily grown for its medicinal qualities. It has (although I have never used it) the nickname ‘Pie Plant’ because it is so popular as a pie filling. A man called Ben Franklin is accredited with bringing the seeds to North American east coast in 1772.

Why should I be eating it? Rhubarb is hight in dietary #fibre, #calcium, Vitamin K, zinc and magnesium to name a few! Find out 20 more benefits here!  Thank you to @VeganDisco for sharing this live photo!

Lets have a look at some recipes that were shared on the night.

One really popular choice was a traditional #rhubarbcrumble take a look at this recipe from @jfitz45 Lovely hey!? Thank you to @wrapedinpaper for this #crumble recipe. Plus some lovely photos!

@DeanFarmTrust were telling us about making rhubarb cordial. They advised us to ‘Simmer rhubarb and little sugar, strain. Serve with fizzy water‘ Definately giving that a go! A similar idea came in from @elenabedford who told us about making ‘#rhubarb #juice’. Their advice is to ‘Simmer rhubarb, water and ginger until rhubarb is soft, strain, chill and serve! @VeganDisco told us about having rhubarb cooked in #yorkshirepudding, sprinkled with sugar for desert! It actually sounds rather tasty! Kinda like a thick pancake..This will have to be tried!

Thank you to @theflexitarian for sharing this lovely recipe for ‘rhubarb fool #chia pudding’ ooh! @theflexitarian shared this tasty sounding idea ‘Favourite combo with rhubarb = banana, ginger, strawberry, cinnamon, saffron, vanilla. made a lovely rhubarb/ banana jam‘ Talking about #jam, here sis a lovely Rhubarb and #vanilla #jam recipe.

@slowcookeryclub shared a favourite #jam flavour blend ‘Summertime means strawberry-rhubarb cardamom jam. End of rhubarb season lines up w/beginning of strawberries here. Perfect!‘ Thats one I have not tried! (yet!)

Many thanks to @vegsoup4thesoul for sharing their recipe for ‘#roast rhubarb with #vanilla and #lemon’ tasty! Or how about  ‘rhubarb and #custard #icecream‘?! Dont mind if I do…

A big thank you to @veganFoodChat for sharing their recipe for ‘#lemon #berry #rhubarb #cupcakes’! Ooh very nice!

Lets not forget its also possible to cook savoury dishes!

Thank you to @veganneil for sharing this curry recipe I must try this! On a similar note is this recipe for ‘#indian spiced #lentils with #spinach and #rhubarb’ Very interesting! Rhubarb #pickle?. Sounds like a tasty vegan Feast!

Please take a peek at twitter for more ideas and chat!

And of course, here is the best type of #Rhubarb…

#Tempeh theme 24th April 2014.

Hello again everyone!

We enjoyed another brilliant #veganrecipehour on 24th April 2014. The theme was #Tempeh.

‘What exactly is tempeh?’ I hear you ask! #Tempeh is traditionally made from ‘Fermented’ (yes! You heard it!) fermented #soya beans. It is Indonesian in origin and in my opinion tasted fabulous! There is a 16th Century booked called ‘Serat Centhini’ which refers to the making and eating of Tempeh. (1,2)

The Tempeh itself (lets stick with soya beans) Is made from hulled, cooked soya beans (with added vinegar) that are mixed with Rhizopus molds (the Tempeh starter) and then placed into a pouch (usually a sandwich bag) and then incubated for 24-48 hours at 28-33C degrees until the spores grow and coat the beans with white ‘mould’ (sometimes also grey parts due to impurites in the spores but still safe to eat!).

Image
‘cooked Soya beans and their husks’

You then have brilliantly useful and versatile Tempeh cakes! This will keep in the fridge now for a few days or it can be frozen for future use.

We actually make it at home and have so far experiemted with soya bean. #Chickpea, mixed bean and adzuki bean varieties. My personal favourites are the traditional soya bean and the chickpea tempeh.

Look here for more information . This is pretty close to how we do it also. Take a look at @BRYNFISH and @VegSweetSimple‘s tweets on the 24th for useful tips and photos regarding their experiences of making #tempeh at home.

Image

Image

So, why should we eat it?  Ok, so if you read the nitty gritty of the process, I can totally understand why you might think ‘Urgh! That sounds rank!’ I thought that also! I even thought that as it came out of the bag! But, when I tasted it, I was hooked! It’s very versatile. We have had it in Chinese dishes, Indian, burgers, loaves, stirfrys…all sorts!

One serving of tempeh (100 grams) provides around 200 calories, 18.2 grams of protein (that’s even more protein per gram than tofu!), and 10% of the RDA of both calcium and iron. Tempeh is a naturally cholesterol-free food! (source) Talking of #tofu, here is a handy #tempeh V #tofu comparison.

Convinced enough to try? Here are a few recipe suggestions from the night:

Thank you to the wonderful @Ephememienne for some wonderful suggestions! Here we have ‘#Tempeh #sanwiches‘ without bread. ‘Coronation salad‘  One big success on the night was this recipe ‘Beet salad with tempeh‘ I am pleased to say @BRYNISH made this and tweeted the photo! 100% yummy!

ImageThis is a lovely recipe reccomenced by @sweetandsimple  ‘Blackened #Tempeh‘ A spicy coated tempeh recipe with Basil Pico de Gallo and Simple Guacamole in tacos. Lovely!

Thank you so much to @Glosvegangroup for joining us and even more for their brilliant suggestion of ‘Hot-sauce-glazed tempeh’ from Veganomicon fab!

Another lovely idea (and one which I cant wait to try) came from @jagrazi in the shape of ‘Cornmeal crusted Tempeh‘ Which they recommended serving with cashew cream sauce & mashed cauliflower! Sounds wonderful!

Thank you once again to @paulYoud for his suggestion of adding cubed #tempeh to his recipe for ‘Thai curry pie

How about having a go at making this lovely sounding ‘Tempeh with Apricots and Capers‘ Yum!

Oh boy, how about a ‘TLT sandwich!? Wow! Or check this out! ‘Balsamic maple glazed Tempeh‘ oh boy! Tempeh Burger anyone? ‘Sweet and sour red cabbage with apples and Tempeh‘ All absolutely gorgeous!!

I also like to marinade it overnight in a sealed box in a mixture of #BBQ sauce and a little #agave. I always like to blanch it first in a pan of water with some #soya sauce and a couple of #garlic cloves. it takes off the raw taste. (but that’s just my preference)

I’m sure you can see now that #tempeh is versatile and I hope you search some or make your own out and give it a go soon!

Thank you again!

#vegansausages theme 3rd April 2014

Hello again all!

Welcome to another little round up of some recipes from #veganrecipehour. it was a another enjoyable night.

I have to admit to a little self indulgence with this theme! I’m a big fan of Vegan sausages and have recently started to make my own using this wonderful recipe. But, I have used Okara instead left over from making soya milk/tofu at home.

Image

They come out looking like that and are VERY tasty! Have a go! Its worth it!

It was also clear that many of you have a soft spot for Linda McCartney sausages. I always have some of these in the freezer! I use them quite a lot for inexpensive dinners. Some examples are an ‘All day Breakfast fritatta‘, Roles into ‘meatballs’ in this ‘Kale and Chickpea stirfry‘ Or how about making your own vegetable sausages? try these ‘Summertime veggie sausages‘ Yum!

Better than this huh… ‘So what ingredients really go into your Hot Dog?’

Image

Sometimes we all need a bit of comfort food dont we?! So, how about taking a look at this ‘Sausage and Bean Shepherds pie’ recipe from @veggiesandvegans Mouthwatering!

This recipe for ‘Two bean and leek sausages’ proved to be very popular. thank you to all who suggested it and thank you for creating it @Gourmetvegan ! Another recipe to make your own is from @Isachandra and PPK Simple Italian sausages‘ look awesome!

What about a ‘sausageroll’? Doesnt that have to contain meat?! NOPE! definately not! have a look at these tasty ideas! This one is from @yogivegetarian. It used TVP mince and Yellow mung beans.Very tasty! Another lovely idea came in from @paulyoud Who has created sausage rolls using bread dough. Lovely hey!

This recipe from @NiaChubba.amazing! .. ‘yeast free stuffed crust pizza’! created using ‘Dees Wholefood‘ sausages. this is also #glutenfree! Wow!

The great thing about having #vegansausages is that many traditionally none vegan recipes can be altered simply to become a veganised version. such as a Vegan ‘Toad in the hole‘ or this megga simple ‘sausage casserole’.

If you are currently making the transition to being Vegan or if you are incorporating more vegan food, it doesn’t mean you have to ‘loose’ your favourite meals. The vegan community is amazing and will always find a way!

Please have a look at the nights tweets for more ideas and shared recipes! I will leave you with this cartoon…it sums it up really!!Image

Yummy…….. :o/

#veganbreakfast theme 13th March 2014

Thursday 13th March #veganrecipehour theme was all about the #Veganbreakfast!

It was a 100% mouthwatering affair with many scrumptious suggestions that left my belly rumbling!

I personally like to have Muesli for week day breakfasts. I mix different sized oats and add whatever seeds, nuts, dried fruits I have at the time. Keep it in a big bag and have a handful with some Soya or Almond milk each morning. The weekend is a different matter! In our house we like to have a ‘special’ breakfast on at least one of the days. Tofu scramble is a top choice with maybe a sausage or two or mushrooms etc. Or maybe some home made crumpets with home made jam yum yum! On a warmer day maybe some ‘overnight oats’ with fresh fruit. To be honest the choices are endless and all as totally tasty as each other. We vegans are spoilt for choice! A tasty vegan #crueltyfree Breakfast? What better way to start the day!

Here is a selection of the amazing recipes and ideas from he night itself.

Smoothies proved to be a popular way to start the day. A handy tasty drink packed full of goodness! (Be careful of the sugar content if you are adding sweetness) We had some yummy suggestions, here is a selection:

Heavenly Organics @heavenlyskin suggested this tasty smoothie:

‘Breakfast smoothly 1 organic banana organic& 1/3 tin mango & coconut mylk to desired consistency. Whizz up. Delicious’

Thank you to @vegsoup4thesoul  who told us how they like to start the day with:

‘Fave b’fast smoothie: almond milk, soya yoghurt, bananas, walnuts, agave syrup 🙂 Throw it all in, blitz’

Thank you to @theFlexitarian for this totally tropical suggestion! ‘Tropical protein smoothie’

On a similar theme how about this ‘Easy ‘Banana Milk’ recipe (for cereal) from @PotatoStrong  who also suggested this yummy ‘Fat free wholewheat Pancake’ recipe.

Raw breakfast ideas? How about this one? ‘Apple cinnamon porridge‘ and a fascinating like to ‘raw vegan butter‘ thank you @RawVeganista for that suggestion.

Another Porridge suggestion from @TheFlexitarian but this time, its for ‘Quinoa Porridge‘ with banana and walnuts. Yum!

Check out this mammoth sized Breakfast from @VeganDicso! Cor blimey! I’d give it a good go! They also shared this photograph!  ‘Fry up. ‘Shrooms, Avocado, Tomato, Kale & a couple of Lindas  I have to admit, I really like Linda McCartney sausages and find them pretty versatile. What’s even better is that they are frequently on offer in the shops! #veganonabudget! Tempeh is gorgous for a breakfast, here it is wonderfully demonstrated.Thank You! Food to make your Mouth water!

Another tasty cooked breakfast from @FlavourPhotos ‘ Scrambled tofu with vegan chorizo, spring onions and tomatoes’ Who helpfully added a little advice on making scrambled Tofu:

Add salt, pepper, garlic- granules or fresh, paprika, tiny bit of turmeric for colour and anything else you like!’

Another suggestion for a #tofuscramble recipe came from @PotatoStrong  Who likes to add peppers and Onions to his. @theFlexitarian adds #Nutritionalyeast to theirs.

How tasty does this look and sound!? ‘Crispy potato Rosti with Herby bean mash tweeted by @NaturalFuelBlog. Gorgeous!

Thank you to @PaulsMaier for this suggestion of ‘Best Healthy Breakfast cookies‘ Sticking with a sweet theme, these ‘Heavenly Hazelnut pancakes‘ look like they live up to their name! Thank you @vegsoup4thesoul! Be sure to have a browse through their ’30 #Vegan breakfast ideas to get out of bed for!’ What a sacrifice that must have been, eating all of that food hey! Hehe!
