Recipe Dump

I haven’t posted any recipes in awhile, so here are some highlights from the past few weeks. Last week we had a guest chef (one of the Multi-Faith Chaplaincy’s religious coordinators who made chana masala) so I don’t have a recipe for that week, but here are some others:

Lots of garlic
olive oil
potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, spinach, other veggies you want
beans, either canned or soaked and pre-cooked
nutritional yeast
balsamic vinegar
chili flakes

Saute onions and garlic in oil for a few minutes. Add veggies and saute.
Either add some water/stock to the mixture or transfer to pot with boiling water.
Add pre soaked T.V.P, beans, and balsamic vinegar.
Simmer until the veggies are cooked- add salt, peper, basil, oregano, and nutritional yeast.

Carrot-ginger soup:
sesame oil
ginger (grated)
lots of carrots
Lots of sweet potatoes
cayenne powder

Saute onions, garlic, ginger, and spices in oil for about 10 minutes.
Boil veggies until cooked, about 15 minutes- combine with sauteed mix.

Corn Bread:
(This will make one pan. To serve 100, x by 7)
3/4 cup corn meal
1 cup flour- white, whole wheat, buckwheat, whatever
1/3 cup sugar (I used brown sugar)
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup soymilk
1/4 cup blended tofu or 1 egg replacement
2 tbs. margarine

Mix dry ingredients well. Add wet ingredients to dry all at once or one at a time. Pour mixture into greased baking pan. Bake at 425 f for about 25 minutes.

Date Squares:
(again, makes about 1 baking pan)
1 cup water
2 cups chopped pitted dates
1/2 tsp salt

4 cups rolled oats
2 cups flour of any type
1 cup sugar or dry sugar substitute
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup margarine
1/4 cup oil
1/2 tsp vanilla

Boil the filling water and salt in a pot. Add the dates and cook on low heat until the dates are softened- about 7 minutes. Set Aside.
For crust, combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix margarine and vanilla and add, with oil, to dry ingredients. Mix well, adding a bit of water if needed to help the mix stick. Press some of the mixture onto the bottom of a greased baking dish. Spoon the date mixture on top. Sprinkle the remainder of the crust mix on top of the dates. Bake at 350 f for about 40 minutes until firm and browned, but not burned.

Enjoy the new recipes!
