Vegan Grilled Cheese and Dill Pickle Soup

Image
I have a lot of pickles in my fridge and someone on Instagram had mentioned dill pickle soup. I thought it sounded interesting but I didn’t look up a recipe.  I was using things I had in my house as I  haven’t gone grocery shopping for awhile. I added vegan butter, half an onion, 1 potato, a few pickles, and lots of spices to the soup maker. I used curry powder, dried parsley, smoked paprika, mushroom seasoning, salt and pepper. I turned the soup maker on and went to do a workout. The soup maker is still my favourite gadget.  I am always amazed by how good things turn out in the soup maker. I will make this soup again but I will use more vegetables next time to get a creamier texture.  I found this really good applewood vegan cheddar block from the UK at Save-On-Foods on sale for $8.99. I thought it was expensive when I bought  but the block lasted a long time and it melts great the best melting vegan cheese I have tried so far. You can see the cheese here on my second Instagram accoun

October 30, 2017 Healthy Flourless Vegan Fudge Brownies, Facebook recipe #3

The link to the original recipe no longer works; however it is from Big Man's World healthy flourless Fudge Brownies. The link for the original video is on livingvancouverloca's facebook page which can be found here https://www.facebook.com/livingvancouverloca/.

I could only watch the video and not find the original recipe so this is not an exact recipe; however it turned out okay.


There are only 5 ingredients and my version is vegan since I used vegan chocolate chips

 sweet potato, cocoa powder, almond butter for the brownies. My friend gave me the giant potato and I steamed it but not long enough.
 The original recipe says to heat the nut butter but I don't have a microwave so I decided that I could mash the potato and mix the butter in the blender of my magic bullet. It didn't work very well and I had to add water to mix it a little.
 In the end I came out with a decent looking batter. The original recipe calls for cooking at 350 for 25 minutes. I cooked in the toaster oven with a bigger sweet potato so I cooked for 40 minutes at 350.
 Then for the icing melt chocolate chips and coconut milk. I used my steamer pot to melt it but I originally put too much milk in.
 Too much milk means more chocolate
 now they are frosted
 I have this left over chocolate if I freeze it will turn to ice cream?
Final result I am not a fan. They are not sweet enough and have a bit of a dry texture. I may try this again using pumpkin or banana instead of sweet potato.

What I am a fan of is the frozen chocolate it tastes great and the texture is like that of a cheaper vegan ice cream. I think if I mix a frozen banana in it next time I will get a really great chocolate soft serve.
