Vegan Mofo day 07, Vegan Mofo Survey.

1. Favorite non-dairy milk?
So Nice Unsweetned SoyMilk for cooking and general all purpose use, its a little chalky sometimes but it has the least "beany" flavor out of any unsweetned soymilk I have ever tasted.
Natura Vanilla SoyMilk for making ice cream and it's the best in coffee! Its very rich and creamy, and very smooth.

2. What are the top 3 dishes/recipes you are planning to cook?
Right now I am working on a Holiday E-book, so I am testing those recipes.
I'm going to make: Green bean casserole, scalloped potatoes and "tofurkey".

Grey seat salt, Earth Balance, fresh cracked black pepper and nutritional yeast

Trying to make a sugar free, fat free banana bread. Trying to make gluten free muffins or bread... Major disasters!

Pickled nacho style jalapenos

6. How do you organize your recipes?
I don't really own any cook-books I use, My recipes are all over the place some are on my computer, I have three notebooks filled with random stuff with some recipes thrown in... Not organized at all actually.

Compost for sure, my city has a great "greenbin" program now I only put out a small grocery bag sized bag or garbage out once a week!

Dark chocolate (%75+), bananas, and homemade french fries... Healthy I know

9. Fondest food memory from your childhood?
Christmas cooking with my mom, we would stay up late and make french tourtieres (meat pies, with fake meat), sugar pies, and sugar cookies. Just thinking about it, gives me the warm fuzzies.

10. Favorite vegan ice cream?
Natura Maple, with chocolate fudge sauce and pecans! We don't get many different kinds of Vegan Ice cream here in Kingston, so I make do buy "fancying" them up!

My KitchenAid Stand mixer.... Need I say more? Lol!

12. Spice/herb you would die without?

Organic Raspberry Jam.

15. Favorite vegan recipe to serve to an omni friend?
Indian food, very easy to veganize and it's so spicy no one can tell whats in it!

16. Seitan, tofu, or tempeh?
Tofu because it is so versatile, it can be turned into "cheese", blended into smoothies, made ito scramble... What can't it do? Whats not to love about it?

17. Favorite meal to cook (or time of day to cook)?
I like cooking in the middle of the day the best, that's not always possible... But dinner is definitely my fav meal of the day to cook.
