Last year, I found out about a lot of new things as a vegan. One thing I learned about was the Vegan Month of Food (also known as vegan MOFO). It was a neat way to join the community of vegan bloggers and find out more about different foods that vegans eat.
One Web site I found during this time was VegWeb. I like this Web site because it has a lot of great recipes. There are other features on the site, but I have to be honest and say that I haven't really looked at them. There are lists of vegan substitutes as well that are very helpful when you might not have all the ingredients on hand.
What I find very helpful are the reviews. It's nice to see feedback on any given recipe so that you know how it turned out. Many users will also give suggestions like I changed this and added that or I cut the sugar in half, etc. It really makes it easier to experiment when other people are willing to let you know how their changes worked out.
The have an iPhone app as well. It was $2.99 well spent in my opinion. I like that I can save recipes, browse through dishes and have everything in my hand. I don't have to haul my laptop into the kitchen and try to find a spot to put it. Now I can just use my phone to see all the details.
I thought I'd share with you a couple of recipes that I've tried and loved on VegWeb.
I'm a chocoholic and this can be a bit of a problem when you are trying to stay away from milk products. Enter vegan brownie recipe. This recipe is so easy to make and tastes delicious. My kids love when I make these (which I do whenever I need my chocolate fix).
We also like Easy Pancakes. They are exactly what they say--easy. They taste great and you wouldn't know that they were made without eggs except for the fact that they are lighter than regular pancakes. Even my omni-vore husband liked them and that's saying something! You can add fruit or chocolate chips to these to make something different. I've enjoyed thawing some frozen fruit and pouring it on top (with the juice from the fruit too) and adding a bit of syrup.
So, there you go, 2 of my favourite recipes from VegWeb.
