soy yogurt blended with mango, raspberries, rosewater and agave turned out very well.

my recent flickr food pics:

pumpkin babka with a chocolate chestnut filling

messy slice of chocolate pudding cake (flavoured with rum and coconut, and “fattened” with Earth Balance – i find that it makes for a firmer pudding than oil)

double/reversed and pecan powered chocolate chip cookies

thin crust pizza with cashew-tofu ricotta and olives/mushrooms/spinach

veganyumyum’s sweet & sour crispy tofu, which i really like but will try with less sweetness and more heat next time.

french lentils and sundried tomatoes stew on lemon basil mashed potatoes

the last one was really easy and delicious, so here’s an explanation of what i did:

roughly chopped up and caramelized an onion in olive oil, added a few chopped cloves of garlic, a bit of allspice and 3-4 dry tomato halves (not the oil packed stuff.) glazed with a good amount of red wine and added the rinsed french lentils, covered in twice as much water and added salt and pepper. after bringing to a boil, this simmered for about 40 minutes half covered.

in the meantime, i boiled a few red skin potatoes, roughly chopped up some basil (but it might be nice to chop it fine for a green effect!) and mashed them together with lemon juice and some finely grated zest, earth balance and the requisite salt and pepper. that’s it!
