Default Looking for recipies!

Okay, so here is the deal:

with so many amazing women (and men) on these forums I am thinking that some of you have some treasured delicious family recipes, and I am looking for new things to make!

I will literally eat anything-including vegan/vegetarian/carnivorian, kosher, not kosher, etc

Please help me expand my cooking repertoire for 2013!

I am going to make the cabbage dish this week, and I'll soak some beans and see about those burgers.

Thank you so much!

Sounds delicious!! I will definitely try all of those! Here is one that my family loves, that my Mom made a lot when I was growing up. It is a really good tobaggoning day dish as you can start it and then leave it to bake for hours while you are gone.

Oven steak

Take a mallet or sturdy saucer and as many boneless steaks as you wish to make (steaks don't have to be a tender cut--they will end up very tender); dredge the steaks in flour, salt and pepper and pound them with the mallet or edge of the saucer on a cutting board. Keep adding flour if it disappears. Place steaks in a large, heavy casserole dish and just cover with boiling water. Put in a 225 degree oven and let bake for 4 to 6 hours.

While you are pounding the steaks, start some potatoes boiling. They won't be done by the time you are done, but drain and put them in a cool room or in your fridge until you are ready for them.

Go tobaggoning!

When you come back or 4 to 6 hours later, bring some veggie or mushroom broth to a boil; add the previously boiled potatoes and let them simmer while you set the table and make a salad. Once they are heated through, mash them with some of the broth. Add the rest of the broth to a saucepan, and if the gravy over the oven steak needs thickening, add some flour to the broth and whisk until simmering and thickened. Add the gravy from the steak casserole dish and whisk; arrange the steaks from the casserole dish on a serving platter and drizzle with gravy if desired; place rest of gravy in a gravy boat for the potatoes.

Mushroom stew

This is one of my favorite accompaniments to the above, especially since I don't eat meat but this along with potatoes and veggies is one of my favorite meals

Saute some diced onions in a tablespoon of olive oil; add a pound of washed mushrooms of your choice. Personally I love whole button mushrooms for this dish. While those are cooking, chop up a little red pepper finely; add the red pepper, and drain the liquid if there is too much. Add broth or consomme and when that is hot, a little cream or if you are a vegetarian like me, some coconut cream. Done!

Well no more greasing or lining Muffin or Loaf Pans for me . . . since Santa brought me brand new silicone Pans for both!

So I might take a stab at those Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

Skillet Gardener's Pie

2 pounds Yukon gold or red potatoes
1/2 cup soy milk
salt and pepper, to taste
1 large onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 large carrots, diced
2 ribs celery, diced, leaves minced and reserved
8 ounces mushrooms, diced
2 cups fat-free vegetable broth
16 ounces kidney beans, cooked
2 cups green beans, cut in 1" pieces
1 1/2 teaspoons thyme
2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, minced (or 1 tsp. dried)
1/4 teaspoon sage
2 cups baby spinach leaves, packed
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons water (or veg. broth)
extra rosemary for garnish

Scrub the potatoes and cut them into cubes. (I leave mine unpeeled, but if you want you can peel them before dicing.) Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer until potatoes are tender. Reserve a cup of their cooking water, if possible, and drain. Place in a large bowl, add the soymilk, and mash until smooth, adding a little of the potato-cooking water if they seem too dry. Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste and set aside in a warm place.

While the potatoes are cooking, make the "pie." Spray a large non-stick or cast iron skillet with canola oil. Heat it on a medium-high burner and add the onions. Sauté until onions are translucent. Add the garlic, carrots, celery, and mushrooms, and sauté for 3 more minutes.

Add the vegetable broth, kidney beans, green beans, and herbs. Simmer on medium heat for 20 minutes and all vegetables are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste (I added a little hickory salt). There should still be some liquid in the pan, but if it has become too dry, add a little of the potato-cooking water. Add the spinach and stir until it's completely wilted. Mix the corn starch with the water until smooth, and add it to the pan. Cook, stirring, until mixture has thickened.

Spoon the potatoes evenly over the top of the filling and sprinkle with chopped rosemary. If potatoes have cooled, put the skillet under the broiler for a minute or two. Serve immediately while hot.



Impossible Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Ingredients
• 1 1/2 cups soymilk
• 1 tbsp. Ener-G egg replacer*
• 1/4 cup water*
• 1 tbsp. cornstarch
• 1 tsp. vanilla
• 2 cups pureed or mashed cooked pumpkin (or cushaw or winter squash)**
• 1/2 cup rice flour (see note)***
• 2 tsp. baking powder
• 3/4 cup sugar
• 1/4 tsp. ginger powder
• 1 tsp. cinnamon
• 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
• 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
• 1/2 tsp. salt
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a 9-inch deep dish pie pan with cooking spray. (I used a Pyrex pan, and it came out with no sticking.) A deep dish is recommended because this pie will rise a lot during cooking but will fall back down as it cools.
1. Put the first five ingredients in the blender, and blend well. Add the pumpkin, and puree. Add the remaining ingredients and blend on high for 2 minutes, stopping to scrape the sides a couple of times to make sure everything is thoroughly blended. Pour into a pie pan and bake for about 60 minutes. The top and edges should be brown, but the edges should not be over-done. (Since this is a custardy pie, using the standard toothpick or knife test does not work; it will remain somewhat moist in the center, but it shouldn’t be uncooked.)
2. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the counter. For best results, refrigerate until chilled before eating.

Notes
I just used 1 tbsp of ground flax seed as the egg replacement, I didn't even add any water because I used canned pumpkin, which is wetter than using fresh roasted pumpkin, or so I think. I've never used the Ener-G stuff.





Chili Mac

Ingredients
• 2 cups elbow macaroni
• 1 onion, chopped
• 1 15-ounce can tomato sauce
• 1 1/2 cups water
• 4 teaspoons mild chili powder*
• 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
• 10 ounces frozen corn kernels
• 1 16-ounce can pinto or kidney beans, rinsed and drained
• 2 to 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
• 5 cups thinly-sliced kale (thick stems removed before slicing) or other greens**
• salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
1. Cook the pasta in plenty of boiling water until tender. Drain. Sauté onion in a large non-stick pot until translucent. Add remaining ingredients, as well as cooked pasta. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve hot.
Notes
*This is chili powder, not pepper, a mixture of mild chili peppers and cumin that adds no heat to the dish. If you want it spicy, add cayenne or additional chipotle chili powder.
**If you use a faster-cooking green such as spinach, add it during the last 3 minutes of cooking.




Cinnamon Buns


Ingredients
¾ cup plant-based milk
1 packet active yeast
3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 tbsp baking powder
¼ cup raw sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
6 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
4 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp raisins (optional)
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 tsp plant-based milk

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350F.
Grease a circular cake pan and set aside.
Gently warm 3/4 cup non-dairy milk to about 110 degrees.
Sprinkle yeast over warmed non-dairy milk and let it dissolve, about 5 minutes.
Combine 2 cups of flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 salt in a large bowl.
Add 5 tbsp applesauce and yeast mixture, stirring spatula to combine. Add in another 1/2 cup flour, stirring to combine.
Sprinkle remaining flour on a flat surface and knead dough, kneading in most of the flour. Knead about 15-20 times.
Using a floured rolling pin, roll dough out into large, thin rectangle and set aside.
Prepare filling by combining 4 tbsp brown sugar with 1 tbsp unsweetened applesauce, 1 tsp cinnamon and raisins if using.
Spoon filling in the center of the dough and spread it around, leaving 1" edge clear.
Gently but tightly roll the dough up.
Use a pizza cutter, sharp knife or string to cut off 6 rolls and place into prepared cake pan and bake 20 to 25 minutes, until golden and cooked through.
Meanwhile, prepare icing by mixing 1 cup confectioners sugar with 1 tsp non-dairy milk (plain or vanilla), whipping until it becomes a thick glaze with no sugar chunks. Spread glaze over hot buns.



Deviled Eggs (Vegan)

Ingredients
a dash of black salt
¼ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ cup hummus
6 small red potato
a dash of paprika
a dash of hot sauce (optional)
¼ tsp Dijon mustard

Instructions
Boil potatoes until fork-tender, then let cool completely. Meanwhile, mix hummus, mustard, garlic and onion together, plus a pinch of black salt, stirring to combine. (Add hot sauce here if you prefer a spicy deviled egg). Taste, adding more Dijon or black salt to taste, then set aside. Once potatoes cool, slice in half long-ways and use a little spoon or melon baller to scoop out a small circle of the potato flesh (this is your “egg”). Spoon hummus mixture into the hole and garnish with paprika or smoked paprika.




Hippie Loaf

Ingredients
15 ounces black beans, drained and rinsed
1 whole onion, diced
2 whole garlic cloves, minced
1 whole carrot, minced
2 whole celery stalks, minced
1 cup mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1 cup quinoa, cooked
1 tbsp italian seasoning
3 tbsp brown rice flour
2 tbsp ketchup
2 tbsp tamari

Instructions

Grease a standard bread pan and set aside.
Mash black beans in a large bowl and combine all ingredients until evely combined.
Transfer to pan and pat down firmly and tightly using a spatula.
Bake 45 minutes to one hour, until firm and browned on the outside.
Allow the loaf to cool and firm up before serving, about 15 to 20 minutes.
