I think I'll start posting this every Sunday. Some things remain the same, and some change!
See last time's plate here.
Newcomers and updates:
The candied almonds were completely frozen this time, and the texture was much better. The taste is still somewhat off, but that *might* be remedied next week... stay tuned!
Made some orange cardamom mousse! It's not that hard... really. Chuck into a vitamix: 1 small peeled orange, ~8 oz tofu (I used half silken and half firm because that's what was readily available), 1/2 tsp cardamom powder, a small splash of almond milk, ~1/4 cup sugar free maple syrup, ~3 tbsp stevia (might want to add more, it could have been sweeter), and 3 tbsp cocoa powder. Blend until smooth - and further. The texture of this was great, with the help of Mr. V! Just slightly puffy.... Recipe adapted from Oh My Veggies.
No-bake chocolate-PB balls! The texture was a bit odd - still needs some work. But the flavour was all there. Mix together 2 tbsp brown rice flour (might go with oat flour, or straight up oatmeal, next time), 2 tbsp almond meal, 1 scant tbsp cocoa powder, 1 tbsp stevia (would add more next time), a heaping tbsp PB2, and enough sugar free maple syrup to make a dough-like substance. Chill until firm. Recipe adapted from Chocolawty.
