RECIPE: Strawberry Phyllo Strudels - by Fettle Vegan

on Monday, 25 July 2016. Posted in Recipes

RECIPE: Strawberry Phyllo Strudels - by Fettle Vegan

This relatively simple pastry recipe will have all your friends talking about how delightful vegan food yums can be. If you're wondering about the phyllo sheets (store bought, that is) like we were, it turns out a handful of brands are "accidentally" vegan. Just be sure to read ingredients, as always. Have fun with this one and change up the fruit(s) if you're feeling jazzy. Enjoy!

Phyllo Ingredients:
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
12 large phyllo sheets, divided and folded in half
2 cups fresh strawberries, washed, hulled, and chopped

Frosting Ingredients:
1/2 cup plain vegan cream cheese
3 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment/baking paper.
2. Layer the folded phyllo sheets on the prepared baking sheet, brushing each sheet with the melted coconut oil before adding the next. Brush the 6th sheet with coconut oil and spread the strawberries, leaving about a 1-inch border around the edges.
3. Layer the remaining 6 sheets, continuing to brush with coconut oil. Once the top layer has been brushed, use a large sharp knife or pizza cutter to slice the pastry into 8 equal rectangles. 
4. Bake for 12-16 minutes, or until golden brown.
5. While pastries bake, prepare the cream cheese glaze by whisking together the cream cheese, maple syrup, and vanilla until smooth. When pastries finish baking, let cool for at least 10 minutes, then drizzle with cream cheese glaze.

3 Tbsp. chia seeds
2 Tbsp. rolled oats
1 cup non-dairy milk (try almond)
1 tsp. maple syrup (or agave, optional)
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
4-6 figs, roughly chopped (or your favorite seasonal fruit)
sliced almonds, for garnish

Directions:
1. In a medium sized bowl mix chia seeds, oats, milk, sweetener, and extracts.
2. Set aside to coagulate for 15-20 minutes. 
3. Top with figs (or your favorite fresh fruit) and sliced almonds.
4. Enjoy (leftovers last for up to one week in the fridge)!

RECIPE: Roasted Romanesca Cauliflower

on Monday, 16 November 2015. Posted in Recipes

RECIPE: Roasted Romanesca Cauliflower

Talk about a beautiful or possibly terrifying looking vegetable! The romanesco cauliflower is truly nature's work of art. Originating from Italy this intriguing veggie is a bit crunchier than its more tree-like-looking traditional counterpart, and has a lighter, near-buttery flavor all on its own. If you can't find this symmetrical vegetable at your store this time of year, no worries, the cauliflower type you're used to, will work equally as well with this dish. But keep your eyes peeled for this "Roman" variety as we think you'll truly love it. 

Ingredients:
1 large head romanesco cauliflower
1/4 cup liquid coconut or olive oil
1/2 cup diced red onion
6 cloves garlic, minced
juice of 1 whole lemon (about 1/4 cup)
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt & pepper
1/2 cup dry sherry (optional)
fresh chopped cilantro, for garnish

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Trim and wash cauliflower leaves and cut the stem so that the cauliflower stands upright in a heavy cast-iron pan (with lid). Place cauliflower in the pan; use a sharp knife to carve a 1 inch deep "X" into the top of the cauliflower. 
3. In a small bowl combine oil with the onions, garlic, lemon juice, and spices. Pour over the cauliflower, slightly pulling the "X" apart so the oil can seep into the middle. Evenly coat the cauliflower (no need to flip over). 
4. Pour sherry lightly over the whole thing, then cover the pan. Bake for 40 minutes or until cauliflower is fork-tender. Then remove the lid and cook for another 10-15 minutes. 
5. Remove from oven and serve with an extra squeeze of lemon juice, sprinkle with cilantro and enjoy!

RECIPE: Mexican Wheat Berry Salad

on Monday, 28 September 2015. Posted in Recipes

RECIPE: Mexican Wheat Berry Salad

We love the sounds (and looks) of this fun dish from our friend Amber over at theFettle Vegan food blog. From reading Amber's post about this particular recipe we learned that wheat berries are the whole kernel of wheat (which includes the bran, germ, and endosperm). This means that they are unprocessed and the purest form of wheat available on the market. Wheat berries are "high in fiber and rich in vitamins B1 and B3, plus magnesium, phosphorus, copper, manganese, and selenium," notes FettleVegan.com. Not to mention they're super filling. All in all great stuff and we're excited to share one of Amber's fabulous recipes using this fun ingredient!

Ingredients:

3/4 cup hard wheat berries
3 cups water
1/2 cup vegan queso cheese (click HERE for a recipe or try the Nacheez brand)
1-2 Tbsp. jalepéno, chopped 
1/2 cup tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup green onion, sliced
juice of 1 lime
chips for scooping (optional)

Directions:

1. In a medium pot, boil wheat berries in water for about an hour, until the berries become soft enough to eat.
2. Drain the water and set the berries aside to cool.
3. Prepare the vegan queso cheese sauce (or take out the ready-made version).
4. Prep jalapenos, tomatoes, green onion, and cilantro.
5. Once wheat berries have cooled mix in the queso, jalapenos, tomatoes, and green onion (save a little for garnish, if you'd like), chopped cilantro, and the lime juice.
6. Mix together with wooden spoon to combine.
7. Scoop into bowls, garnish, and serve.

RECIPE: Southern Fried Zucchini Fritters

Fritters may or may not be a Labor Day weekend "thing" but heck, why not! When we saw these beauties from the Fettle Vegan food blog we just had to share 'em. Double up the recipe and make a bunch for your holiday festivities today. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
2 cups potatoes, peeled and grated
2 cups zucchini, grated
1/2 cup onion, grated
1/2 cup water + 3 Tbsp. chia seeds, blended
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup flour (gluten-free flour optional)
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cayenne
1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup coconut oil (for frying)
lemon/lime wedges, cilantro, and hot sauce optional for garnish

Directions:
1. Grate peeled potatoes, zucchini, and onion into large colander. Let drain for about five minutes, using paper towel to gently squeeze out excess water.
2. Heat coconut oil in a large cast iron (or frying) pan on medium heat. 
3. Transfer drained veggies to a large mixing bowl. Add blended chia seed mixture and garlic; stir to combine. 
4. Add flour, baking powder, cayenne, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper to the veggies; stir to combine. 
5. Scoop a 1/4 cup amount of the mixture into heated oil and press gently with the back of a spoon to flatten. 
6. Let cook for about 2 minutes, until golden brown, before flipping. Once fritter is crisp and golden use a spatula to move it to a paper-towel lined plate. 
7. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to a week.
