LuckyPotLuck Link – I prepared vegetarian, actually vegan, Sloppy Joe mixture using a recipe found at The Vegetarian Resource Group web site. This is a link to the recipe, including nutritional data. The recipe says it makes 4 sandwiches, those are very large portions. It easily makes 6 sandwiches. Before preparing this dish for MESH I made it once as the center of a meatless Monday meal for my family. Based on that test run, and our tastes, I made the following changes when I doubled the recipe for UUCM MESH Cafe: Continue reading
LuckyPotLuck Link I am made Pumpkin Maple Pies for this meal. To make Maple Pumpkin Pie I make two small changes to the recipe found on the label of Libby’s Pumpkin cans. First I always, that is for both plain and maple pumpkin pie, double the recommended amount of ground cinnamon. Then to change a plain pumpkin pie into a maple pumpkin pie I eliminate the granulated ( white ) sugar and substitute a combination of maple syrup and maple sugar. For each pie it’s .5625 cups of maple syrup ( that’s ½ cup plus 1 tablespoon ) and one tablespoon of maple sugar. Here’s a link to the Libby’s Famous Pumpkin Pie recipe.
LuckPotLuck Link I plan on making Mexican Chocolate Pudding. A few weeks ago I made Vegan Chocolate pudding which was easy to prepare and well received. I’m testing a variation that will add some cinnamon and a bit of chile powder. The original recipe follows: Vegan Chocolate Pudding. Making a Mexican variation was inspired by seeing this recipe in the New York Times: Mexican Chocolate Tofu Pudding. My first test was a failure, too spicy for MESH or 3/4 of my own family. I’ll test again on Sunday 10/19 then seek collaborators.
Success with 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1/4 tsp of Chili powder added to the Vegan Chocolate Pudding recipe for each multiple of 6 servings being prepared. Since I prepared batches of 12 or 24 servings the first time I prepared this for MESH, it’s 2 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of Chili powder added to the Vegan Chocolate Pudding recipe for each multiple of 12 servings being prepared. Anyone like to collaborate?
