So..I was at my Aunt and Uncles house all week cooking delicious vegan food for them.
I made a Vegan Lasagna out of Veganomicon with our CSA Spinach. (by the way, use lots and LOTS of spinach if you like lots of veggies in your food. (and who doesn't?) Plus, this whole Lasagna thing let me use nutritional yeast for the first time. It was absolutely amazing, and my non-vegan family loved it.
Then, on Tuesday I headed to a place in boulder called VG Burger, where they have all vegan organic food. Some Quinoa Thai bowl and a Chai Chocolate shake with Oreos. yummy.
Next a avocado rice soup.
Then the best part. Banana bread.
yep. It was great. Here’s the recipe.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 c. applesauce
2 big tablespoons molasses
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
chopped walnuts/chocolate chips/almonds to taste
Mash the bananas well in a large bowl. Add applesauce oil and molasses and mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix until combined. Fold in walnuts. Pour into greased 9x5 bread pan. Bake 45-55 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. (ours was still a little extra moist in the center, but that's just the way I love banana bread.)
To remove from pan, run your knife between the bread and the pan and invert
