Delicious Vegan Pizza!

 

The best Vegan pizza

Toppings:

  • Tomato sauce
  • Red peppers
  • courgettes
  • onion
  • Tofutti grated vegan cheese

 

First make the dough.

1 cup of strong bread flour, mixed with half a cup of water, a pinch of salt and a table spoon of olive oil.

Kneed into a ball, and the use a rolling pin to create the pizza base to fit your pizza stone or pizza tray.

If using a pizza stone, remember to preheat the pizza stone for 15 mins at around 200c. If you are using a regular pizza tray you will need to pre-bake the pizza base for about 10-15 mins.

next, spread the tomato source over the base and add any toppings or cheese (in this example i used tofutti, courgettes, onion, garlic, red pepper and chillies).

Finally bake for around 12 mins @ 200c or until lightly browned as shown in the picture!

The secret for an amazing vegan pizza is using a pizza stone. These are available cheaply on amazon or ebay.

Vegan Egg and Mashed potato

My first time using the new Vegg (Vegan egg yolk).

I made mash potato with spinach and fried onion and garlic.

To make the the egg yolk you need the following;

Vegg (available online)

Calcium Chloride

Food processor / electronic mixer

Measuring jug.

Instructions

Mix 1 tbsp of Vegg with 1/4 cup of water in the food processor

then put 1 gram of Calcium Chloride with 100ml of water and dissolve completely.

use a champaign flute – pour the above mixture into the flute and the pour it out again.

Then poor the vegg mixture into the flute lightly coated with the calcium chloride add a tsp of the calcium chloride mixture to the flute with the vegg and gentle swirl it around making it into a spherical shape. Leave it in the mixture until it is the right texture (the longer you leave it the thicker the skin.

Then place the egg yolk in a water bath – then finally rince it thoroughly before serving.

 

Enjoy your vegan egg and mash!

Vegan Crêpes

Here is a very simple but delicious way of making vegan crepes or pancakes!

Simply mix the following

  • 1 cup of flour
  • half a cup of water
  • half a cup of soya milk
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of sugar or other sweetener ie. maple syrup or agave
  • Optional tb of margarine

 

Mix it until it is a smooth slightly liquid mixture, then heat up a pan I tend to use a small amount of margarine in the pan before each crepe but any oil should work.

Simple cook it for a couple of mins and then flip it.

Mixture is good for 4/5 crepes.

 

Ideas for fillings: Cinnamon sugar and lemon juice, melted dark chocolate and banana served with a couple of balls of Swedish Glace ice-cream.

Vegan Swiss roll recipe

Vegan chocolate Swiss roll

Here is an amazing recipe for making Vegan Swiss Roll.

This was one of the few things that I missed after going Vegan and it tastes amazing. You can also simply modify the recipe to make a Chocolate Swiss Roll that goes well with melted chocolate and banana.

I very much hope that some people find it useful!

 

Ingredients:

Water, Flour, Vanilla extract, Silken tofu, Sugar, baking powder, noegg, lemon juice and salt.

Directions: Pre-heat oven to 175c or 350f

1) mix the following:

  • 1 Cup of tofu (Firm and silken)
  • 1 Cup of Sugar
  • 1 tb Lemon juice
  • 1 tb of Water (update – this must be warm in order to stop the swiss roll from cracking)
  • 1 tb of vanilla extract

Mix is all together until it is well mixed, smooth and fluffy.

2) mix the following

  • 1 Cup of flour
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp of salt
3) mix the following well making sure it becomes fluffy.
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 4 tsp of no egg
4) Finally mix everything together and place in a flat tray on greased/oiled baking paper , smooth it out evenly and place in the oven at 175c.
Baking time should be around 10-12mins or until lightly brown.
Once baked, place topping in the middle of it and roll it up, for fillings like cream wait until it has cooled.
Here are a couple of pictures of my first swiss rolls. Please post any comments or suggestions below.

 
For an alternative recipe for a chocolate Swiss roll just place a quarter of the cup of flour with cocoa powder.
