MAKING VEGAN EASTER BREADS:
Pictured here are Greek Tsoureki (without the red-dyed eggs), made from the same basic dough as the Pane Di Pasqua (Italian Easter Bread Ring), Genovese-Style.
Included in this post are ideas for using vegan "egg" decorations and an easy way to braid bread dough.

My Fermented Oat and Urad Dal Uttapam [Vegan, Gluten-Free] on OGP Recipe Monster 
Uttapam is a thick pancake, with toppings of vegetables added to the "pancake" when it is just ready to be flipped over. Uttapam is sometimes called an "Indian pizza." It's a common breakfast and snack food in Southern India. This is not an "instant recipe, but the "hands-on" time is very minimal and the finished batter can be stored in the refrigerator for a week or so-- it just gets better!

Too many chickpeas and too much hummus from making chickpea broth for meringues and baking?? 
This recipe will use some up in a most delicious manner! 
MY VEGAN VERSION OF HUMMUS BIL “LAHME” (Hummus with Spicy “Meat” & Nut Mixture)
http://veganfeastkitchen.blogspot.ca/2014/03/my-version-of-vegan-hummus-bil-lahme.html
This is a dish that I brought to a casual dinner the other night. It's a hearty variation on plain ol' hummus, of Jordanian and Palestinian origin-- one that I've been planning to "veganize" for a while now. I've been researching this dish for some time. I have a sneaking suspicion that ...

MY NEW PALM-OIL-FREE RAINFOREST SHORTENING & NEW LOWER-FAT FLAKY VEGAN PASTRY
"After I developed my palm oil-free vegan "Buttah" ... I played around with developing a palm oil-free vegan shortening that would be firm, but higher in monounsaturated fat than polyunsaturated or saturated fat. But it went by the wayside as I pursued other projects. Shortening doesn't play a large part in my cooking style, so it wasn't terribly important.
But this week I was wondering if I could make a low-fat (or lower-fat) vegan pastry that was more flaky than the oil-based pastry that I've used and enjoyed for years. I decided that I needed to use a solid fat, but I didn't want to resort to anything made with palm oil or hydrogenated fats, or even the darling of the moment, saturated fat-rich coconut oil."  http://veganfeastkitchen.blogspot.ca/2015/04/my-new-palm-oil-free-rainforest.html

New post: "Today I made this soup for our lunch. I've been making it since the 1970's, but have never posted it, for some reason." 
I haven't been blogging for weeks now! Between the holiday, granddchildren visiting, and getting over a cough that just doesn't want to quit, time has gotten away from me! Today I made this soup for our lunch. I've been making it since the 1970's, but have never posted it, for some reason.

New post: 
The Aztec royalty liked their chocolate with some chile in it, and modern chefs and chocolatiers have made this combo popular with at least a portion of chocolate lovers. This is my contribution-- a spin-off from the Fudge-y Light Vegan Brownies in my book "The Fiber For Life Cookbook".
