Breakfast this morning was Chocolate Chip Pancakes. I used the recipe from The Farm Vegetarian Cookbook. It is a very basic recipe that I always have the ingredients for and the batter comes together very quickly. I usually add something like blueberries or nuts or chocolate chips. I love pancakes!
The Farm Vegetarian Cookbook was one of the first vegan cookbooks I bought when I became vegan. It has a lot of good, basic recipes. The copy I have is the original edition published in 1978. There is a new edition available now. Here are some of my favorites: Jala-pinto Dip--which I use in tamales and as refried beans Chocolate Pudding--another one with ingredients I always have on hand Tofu onion dip
It has a section on making tofu which I have tried once or twice. I would like to try it again sometime. There are also some recipes for using the soy pulp that results from making tofu. It is very well worn. I don't have the cover anymore and it has come apart so the pages are not in order anymore. I don't even know if I have all the pages. I think it is time for a new one.
I have a husband, two young boys, two dogs and a pet sitting business. With all that going on, one of my favorite places to be is in the kitchen cooking and baking vegan food. I became vegan in 1993 and even though I am not as strict about it as I used to be, it is what I love to cook and what I want to share here.
