Other people’s recipes

Here is a collection of my favourite recipes from across the internet, ones that I use regularly. They’re so good that I have made little to no changes to them, and I have to share them with you. I’ve added the changes that I make to the original recipe when I make it.

To save you reading the same thing over and over again, here are simple substitutions that I use all the time, without thinking:

  • Butter == Oil. If you want a buttery taste, use one of the following dairy-free spreads: Naturli (Sainsbury’s), Vitalite (various) Koko.
  • Milk == dairy-free milk;
  • Shortening == Coconut oil

  • Pancakes
    • Pancake tips:
      • Mix as little as possible — stop a few seconds after the flour is mixed in.
      • I rub a tiny amount of oil on the pan
      • Keep the heat low so they cook all the way through.
      • Fire on some golden syrup, or lemon juice and icing sugar, or maple syrup. Yas.
  • Tofu bacon (Genius Kitchen)
  • Popcorn (Make popcorn salt by grinding regular salt in a pestle and mortar. Skip the butter)
  • Faux gras / vegan pâté
  • Barbeque tempeh wings (Broke Foodies)
  • Tahini/lemon/garlic (Veganomicon)
    • Use this as a sauce for vegetables or as a salad dressing. Leave out the dill.
  • Chocolate milkshake (Alton Brown’s Pantry Raid)
    • Blend the following on medium, then high:
      • 180g milk
      • 1 frozen banana
      • 5g cocoa powder
      • pinch of salt
      • 150g cold coffee
    • Skip the dates and the ice. It’s sweet enough and I don’t like the ice texture.
    • Add oats for something more filling. I add the oats to warm coffee in advance, so they’re soft by the time the coffee has cooled.
