More food to drool over today because it’s Friday and we’re lazy and love delicious food! This vegan take on elotes looks to be the tastiest best. Let’s all quit our jobs and eat it until we die. TAKE THAT, HEALTH VEGANS. Also, don’t look at your poop after you eat this. Or ever, really. I’m all about not knowing what’s going on internally and then one day dying from the ten pound tumor hanging off my shoulder that I thought was just a mole. TAKE THAT, HEALTH VEGANS. I don’t know where I’m going with this but basically: Eat this delicious corn dish and don’t ever see a doctor (until the one day you’re going to the bathroom to drop a deuce and out pops a baby, see a doctor then). Enjoy the corn! I’m so sorry!
It’s hot as shit (for us) in the city by the bay so we’re all gonna eat this raw chocolate cherry mousse cake and then sit in the sun and sweat it out, girl. Water weight is still weight, and I say get rid of it!
Vegan Grasshopper Pie from delicious vegan food blog Maple Spice! Plus, a recipe! Made with white chocolate creme de menthe mousse. Ridiculous! I want this so badly right now, let’s eat hella pie all the time! Deal? Deal!
Earth Balance Organic Coconut Spread: Put it on or in EVERYTHING »
Earth Balance Organic Coconut Spread. Oh, hell yes. Use it as sexual lube (commonly known as, “lube”), massage oil, in cupcakes, on toast, on a spoon, for high-temperature frying, or for high-temperature sexual relations. This shit does it all! There’s a reason this won product of the year at Vegnews, and your holiday baking just got a whole bunch more delicious. Plus, it’s all organic, so it doesn’t have any of that bad, shady palm oil in it (warning: shitty PDF). Seriously, if you love orangutans (and who doesn’t! They’re basically the muppet version of Jay Z and Bruce Vilanch’s love child), then only buy the organic Earth Balance DO IT. And since the organic regular Earth Balance is hella whipped, it’s not as good for baking, but now that shit doesn’t matter because this coconut spread is perfect for all your baking needs! Also, use it to get gum out of hair and to shine your silver! DO IT.
To further convince you of its glorious truth: Here’s a PDF from Earth Balance with tons of recipes, and coupons! Whole Foods also has a coupon — I wonder if you can combine to actually make money on this deal?? Learn the art of the pon, people.
Yo, it’s PUMPKIN CREME BRULEE. Or, they’re calling them Pumpkin Pie Custards but I know crème brûlée when I see crème brûlée and that, my friends, is crème brûlée. Also, I don’t think I can type crème brûlée one more time without my brain not being able to understand what it is. You know?
Anyway, there’s no recipe but you can either, get it in Dreena Burton’s soon-to-be-released Let Them Eat Vegan, or steal one from the internet. Or do both! One can never have too many pumpkin crème brûlée recipes, and that, my friends, is another thing I know!
It’s Old Fashioned Creamy Rice Pudding from Julie Hasson!
Now, a story.
I was in bed last night, about to actually fall asleep, when I had to sudden urge to
stalk someone check something on Facebook and a picture of this pudding was in my feed so I got up and made it! I don’t know what is wrong with me but all of a sudden my desire for delicious rice pudding was more important than anything else. And you know what? FUCKING WORTH IT. It’s great because it’s a delicious dessert made with ingredients that you probably already have in your house AND she has some great variations on it, too. I added raisins because I’m a boss. Enjoy!
New vegan gelato coming to Whole Foods! »
It’s called Genuto (cause it’s made with nuts GET IT) and I tried it at last weekend’s World Veg Fest in San Francisco and wrote about it (and an entire World Veg Fest breakdown, with awesome photography by my phone!) over at the wonderful Bay Area Bites. Go read it and learn about this delicious new vegan gelato that’s about to take over your life! It’ll be in Whole Foods and local natural grocery stores staring very soon. Like, in a month. Or less. Anyway: Learn lt, love it, live it.
Make it: the famous Farmhouse veggie burger, VEGANIZED! »
I love veggie burgers personally and professionally, so when I say this is the best veggie burger I’ve ever had, you better believe this veganized Farmhouse veggie burger is the best veggie burger you’ve never eaten. Unfortunately, the original recipe isn’t vegan, but with one small substitute, it can be yours! And that one substitute is Daiya cheddar (or any shredded vegan cheese, but Daiya is comes shredded and I’m already working for this burger, you know? Why the extra work?). Then, just follow the recipe as is and BAM, PERFECT VEGAN VEGGIE BURGER. Well, I’ve never actually MADE the burger (details!) but the friends who made them and invited me over said that they did just as the recipe said, subbed Daiya, and roasted the cubed eggplant at 400 F for about 20 to 25 minutes with olive oil sprayed on it, because sauteing takes longer and we gots to eat!
Seriously, make these, and serve them to your friends and family on crusty rolls with Wildwood’s garlic aioli, roasted red peppers, and caramelized onions. OR just eat it straight out of the pan, which is what I did. And then I deglazed the pan and ate that with a spoon because I’m the grossest. YOU’RE WELCOME!
Incidentally, I played Bananagrams for the first time last night. What fun! I need more of that in my life; we all do. Life is short, there’s no such thing as too many veggie burgers and too much Bananagrams. PEEL!
[Note: I did not take this photo, but your burger will look something like that. If it doesn’t, you really fucked up.]
It Aint Meat, Babe brings us this recipe for a vegan spanish omelet, which is basically a shitton of potatoes all flavored deliciously in the Spanish-style. Get up on that! And then get up in your car and drive it me, Berkeley ain’t far, lazy!
VEGAN THIN MINTS. That’s right, adorable vegan culinary genius Chloe Coscarelli has a recipe for these glorious mothertruckers. WHAT’S MORE, it puts the Thin Mints peddled by those half-pint drug-pushers TO SHAME.
If one of you ungrateful readers/my mom doesn’t put them in my face right now, I swear to GOD, I will go on a shooting* rampage through the lower 48.
*shooting = eating.
