Good stuff to eat.
Sorry, been so lazy with the blogging lately! I've had several meals that I forgot to blog about and here's one of them. It's fried tofu with a tamarind/hoisin glaze. That's coleslaw on top.
Kidney bean curry when I was craving indian food.
Deeelicious flaky and tender biscuits! They are great on their own and perfect with margarine and jam. Me+tea+biscuits=happiness.
I got this recipe from bazu over at the ppk forums. Here it is veganized:
Recipe James McNair's Buttermilk biscuits:
1/2 c. solid vegetable shortening (I used Earth Balance stick)
2 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 c. soymilk whisked together with 1 tsp. vinegar
Position rack in middle, preheat oven to 400 spray baking sheet with oil or line with parchment, set aside in a bowl or food processor, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt. cut in the shortening with your fingertips or a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs. (I used a fork) Add soymilk/vinegar and stir just until the mixture sticks together. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly and quickly, about 30 seconds. using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll out about 1/2 inch thick. using a floured 2 1/2 inch round biscuit cutter, cut out circles. Place onto the prepped baking sheet. Bake until lightly browned, 10-12 minutes. Serve piping hot. I got about 10 biscuits out of this, plus a bunch of loose ends that I'm saving in the freezer to use as dumplings.
