Non-Violent Christmas 2016



Gravy, mixed frozen vegetables, mashed potatoes, vegan meat, festive portobello mushroom wellington, herb infused roast potatoes.


Cupcakes, apple and cherry pie, chocolate bark, chocolate, cookies, failed pavlova, and brownies.


·         Fry’s country mushroom pie.
·         Coke float using dairy free ice cream.
·         Little Island’s coconut caramel ice cream. 


·         Festive Portobello Mushroom Wellington by Bosh https://www.facebook.com/boshtv/videos/1161685957243236/  . The recipe is in the comments. I couldn’t find chestnuts so I substituted cashew nuts instead. 


·         Fluffy one bowl sugar cookies by Minimalist Baker http://minimalistbaker.com/fluffy-1-bowl-sugar-cookies-vegan-gf/ I used flour instead of the gluten free flour and almond flour but this recipe is for gluten free cookies. I also added lemon juice into the icing, and I only baked the cookies for 7 minutes at a time as my father has a tiny convention oven and as you can see, the cookies are tiny.
·         Caramel sauce to put in chocolate: adapted from http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ree-drummond/easy-caramel-sauce-recipe.html
      Pack a cup of brown sugar, and add it to a pan. Mix 1 ½ tablespoons of melted dairy free margarine with 6 ½ tablespoons of dairy free milk, then pour it into the pot. Add 4 tablespoons of dairy free margarine, a pinch of salt, and a tablespoon of vanilla extract. Heat the pan to boil, then simmer for about 5 minutes, pour the contents of the pot into a jar, and then refrigerate for about 3 hours.
·         Failed pavlova…. There are four possible reasons it failed 1) I can’t do pavlovas and I couldn’t pre-vegan too. 2) I used a convention oven 3) I didn’t test the mixture with a toothpick 4) I made two instead of three like the recipe called for. But the recipe:  http://crazy-cucumber.com/make-vegan-pavlova-dessert-aquafaba-vegan-merengue-tutorial/
·         Apple and cherry pie: thinly slice about 3-4 apples depending on your tin. Add ¼ cup of water, ¼ cup of brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon into the pan with the sliced apples and cook until the apples are tender. In the tin you’re going to use, butter it up with dairy free margarine or oil, then put pastry. I used New Ways’ pastry, the one that’s been approved by the Vegetarian society. Add some chopped cherries to the pan, then scoop the solids into the tin. Use scissors to cut the rest of the pastry to make a lattice topping. Glaze with dairy free milk.

      Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night : D <3 nbsp="" o:p="">
