Oil Free Banana Nut Bread

I’ve been experimenting with whole raw flax seeds blended with water to create something to replace eggs lately. This is one of the recipes I’ve created during my experiments. And it works really well, this bread is out of sight.

I’m not just trying to be cute by baking this bread in mini loaf pans, although they certainly are. Something about using slimy flax kept the bread from getting completely done in the center when baked in one large loaf pan. The first few I tested would take hours to bake all the way through and by then the outside would be way too brown. So I solved that problem by using small loaf pans. And really, it’s perfect for holiday nibbling anyway. Just slice the tiny loafs into 1/2 inch pieces and place them on a pretty platter for guest. They’re adorable little tiny pieces of banana bread tehe. It would even be a good thing to carry to a holiday cookie swap. GO TO RECIPE >

Broccoli Curry Casserole

Curry powder infused cream mixed together with spaghetti noodles, broccoli and tofu cubes.

I modeled this recipe loosely after a casserole dish my Mom made often when I was starting out as an 11 year old vegetarian (not yet vegan). If I can remember, the original casserole used Campbell’s canned cream of mushroom soup, and cheese covered the top. I’m pretty sure there was no pasta, just broccoli. I added tofu cubes to mimic chicken and added spaghetti pasta which makes it a real meal. GO TO RECIPE >
