Can biege be mind-blowing? More recipe testing for Manifest Vegan

August 10th, 2011 · Lisa · manifest vegan, Recipe testing · Comments

I do believe that it is best to eat a rainbow of brightly coloured foods.

I love salads and smoothies. I do.

But, sometimes when you’re testing recipes with a looming deadline you have to group things by ingredients to get the most from that big bag of xanthum gum, know what I mean?

Here is my monochrome ode to the brilliant Manifest Vegan. Allyson’s upcoming cookbook contains a wonderful variety of recipes, with a multitude of colourful ingredients, this is just the delicious biege chapter.

Cranberry Spice Bagels

If you’ve been searching for gluten-free, vegan bagels then Allyson’s recipe are the holy grail. She has a few bagel recipeson her blog that you could practice on until you pick up her new book next Spring.

Cherry Apricot Pocket Pies with Easy-Going Pie Crust

These kind of reminded me of something I bought at 7-11 when I was a kid – but about a million times more delicious.
Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
A stack of chewy, gluten-free cookies and a big, cold glass of almond milk – oh, it’s just so hard to be vegan. sigh. 😉
Basic Brown Bread
A simple, versatile recipe for all your toasting, spreading and sandwiching needs.

I have learned a lot about gluten-free baking, flours and special ingredients through Allyson’s inventive recipes. I have just a few more recipes to test over the next week and then another vegan cookbook will go into publication. I plan to reserve room on my shelf and anxiously await its arrival. 


Now, for a couple quick reminders:
