Raw Mojito Soup
So this doesn’t have alcohol in it but it’s minty and lime-y and sweet and makes a great lunch or dinner on a hot, sunny porch.
2 c honeydew melon chunks
2 English cucumbers, peeled and sliced
about 20 mint leaves
2 c water
1 lime
Throw everything except the lime in a blender and puree. Pour into bowls and serve immediately with 1/4 lime for garnish & juice.

Coconut banana pancakes

Firstly, I have to apologize that this post is photo-less. These were gobbled up before I had a chance to take a picture. That said, I’ll definitely be making them again - I will update this post with a photo soon. Recipe is based on this one.

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup light coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 whole banana, sliced thinly
  • 4 tsp shredded coconut

Sift dry ingredients together. Add coconut milk, oil, syrup, and vanilla and mix with a fork until no large lumps remain. Drop batter about 1/4 cup at a time onto a greased skillet or griddle. Immediately after dropping batter onto pan, press a few slices of banana into each pancake, avoiding the edges. Flip when edges brown and bubbles form in batter. Serve topped with banana slices, tsp of shredded coconut, drizzle of coconut milk, and/or maple syrup.

I made these for my husband’s birthday breakfast - I melted some vegan dark chocolate and drizzled his pancakes with that instead of the coconut milk.

Cashew Milk and Spiced Cashew Spread

This is a 2-for-1 deal. You need:

  • 1.5 cups raw cashews, soaked overnight
  • 2.5 cups water
  • pinch of sage, nutmeg, salt
  • squeeze of lemon

Blend the soaked raw cashews with the water until smooth (water should be fresh and clean - not the same water that the nuts were soaked in). Strain through a very fine wire strainer/seive to separate liquid from cashew paste. Store the liquid in a covered container in the fridge - that’s your cashew milk. Be sure to shake it up really well before using.

Add the seasonings to the cashew paste and give it a stir. The consistency should be almost like hummus. This is your spiced cashew spread - good for dipping veggies, breads, pitas, etc. or spreading on toast and crackers.

3/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup cashew (or cashew-macadamia nut) butter
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tsp vanilla

Mocha Stout Cupcakes
3/4 cup soy milk 
1 tsp vinegar 
1 cup all-purpose flour 
1/3 cup cocoa 
1/2 tsp baking powder 
1/2 tsp salt 
1 tbsp finely ground coffee 
1/4 cup vegan stout/porter (I used Mill Street Coffee Porter)
1/2 cup agave nectar 
1 tsp vanilla extract 
1/2 cup oil 
Preheat oven to 325F. Whisk soy milk and vinegar together; set aside. Sift dry ingredients. Combine rest of wet ingredients with soy milk mixture and whisk until frothy. Combine dry ingredients with wet and mix well. The recipe for these is based on a chocolate stout cupcake recipe from this book, which I really think all sweet-toothed vegans should have in their kitchens!
I baked these for about 25 mins in cupcake liners. Agave syrup instead of sugar makes for a seriously moist cupcake. I topped with a vegan cream cheese-based frosting which had about 1/4 cup stout, 1/2 cup cocoa, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp corn starch, 1/8 cup agave nectar, and half a container of vegan cream cheese. Finishing touch is a coffee bean on each one.

Cocoa Muesli Cookies
1 cup vegan muesli (I used Bob’s Red Mill brand - recipe is adapted from one on the bag!)
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup canola oil
3/4 cup cane sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp egg replacer (I used apple sauce)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Preheat oven to 375F. Sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, blend canola oil, egg replacer, vanilla, and sugar. Add flour mixture and combine well. Fold in muesli. Roll into balls and press gently onto lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cookies will still be very soft and somewhat crumbly when you first take them out of the oven - allow to cool before transferring from baking sheet.

The following was written by my really super wonderful cousin-in-law (is that a thing?) and I meant to post it ages ago but somehow missed doing so. This lady is amazing at baking and I’m excited to be trying out this recipe out this evening. 
Liz’s Maple Walnut Cupcakes 
1 cup walnut halves 
1/2 cup soy milk 
1/2 tsp vinegar 
1 1/2 cups flour 
1 tsp baking soda 
1/2 tsp salt 
1/2 cup maple syrup 
1/3 cup canola oil 
1/2 tsp vanilla 
First take 1 cup walnut halves and spread them out on a baking sheet and toast them in the oven for a little bit. Then take a large handful and set aside. Chop up the rest very finely. Take the original handful and while still warm, stir with a drizzle of maple syrup and let cool (those are for decorating the tops). Might as well keep the oven on so it’s preheated. Curdle the soymilk with the vinegar. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix all the wet ingredients (including curdled soymilk) separately. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients, stirring until combined. Fold in the chopped up walnuts. Fill a muffin tin (with the little paper cups or just greased and floured) and bake at 350 F for about 20 minutes or until done.Let cool then you can make a vegan penuche frosting, using margarine instead of butter and soymilk instead of cream. Melt 1/4 cup margarine in a pot with 1/2 cup brown sugar and a tablespoon of maple syrup. Let come to a boil, then remove from heat and let cool slightly. Then whisk in about 1/8 cup of soymilk. Beat in confectioners sugar, probably about 1 1/2 cups, until spreading consistency.

Goji Vanilla Granola
My favourite thing about granola is the crunch, and the kamut flakes in this recipe add a really great crunch without needing to be sugary and oily. The goji berries and vanilla are very flavourful while the agave nectar and cranberries add just a touch of sweetness.
1 cup kamut flakes
1 cup spelt flakes
1/2 cup goji berries
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup coarsely chopped almonds
2 vanilla beans
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 tbsp canola oil
1 tsp maple butter
Preheat oven to 250F. Combine kamut and spelt flakes, almonds, goji berries, and cranberries in a large bowl. Cut the ends off of vanilla pods; slice through one side of the husk using a paring knife and open pod flat on a cutting board, inside facing up. Using paring knife or spoon, scrape the vanilla seeds out of the pods. Combine in a separate bowl with agave nectar, canola oil, and maple butter; mix well. Drizzle wet ingredients over dry and stir slowly to coat.
Spread granola in a thin layer over two baking sheets. Bake at 250F for 90 minutes, stirring every 15-20 minutes to ensure even browning. When granola is finished, transfer to glass plates to cool completely before storing in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
Substitutions - spelt and/or kamut flakes can be replaced 1:1 with rolled oats; maple syrup can be used instead of agave nectar. If you don’t have maple butter, an extra teaspoon of maple syrup with a couple of drops of canola oil will do. Using vanilla extract instead of beans? Try two teaspoons - one for each bean.
