Recipes I've Shared:
porridge and tang zhong for a soft roll - oh yeah!
wanted a rich and creamy soup for the start of cold
This is a flavourful way to add 2 "servings" of vegetables to any meal.
The added flour gives just enough of a "crust" to make it sturdy enough for "stand-alone" pieces.
just an example
These are by no means a "cupcake" - they are a dense, hearty, chewy and satisfying snack!
The blackstrap molasses is included for the vitamins and minerals and not primarily as a "sweetener". Please add your preferred sweetener(s) to taste and adjust the nutritional info accordingly.
Inspired by the recipe for "Black bean brownies" submitted by Spark Member "Acoustickitty".
This version comes out with a very heavy quick-bread type texture (but with a very moist interior if you bake it for less time).
This is definitely not a "sweet" recipe, as I prefer chocolate more on the bitter side, but adding maple syrup to the recipe works well with the flavours if you prefer a sweeter taste.
The portion sizes (and calorie count) are large because I use this as my high-fibre breakfast. Cutting the portions in half is more suitable for a snack or dessert.
I like to serve it warmed and topped with lemon curd, or berries, or even some whipped cream.
These are not your standard muffin - the lentils give a gooey interior, and the colour ends up looking like a burnt purple. They come out lumpy and bumpy, but keep an open mind until you taste them!
I like to serve them with an "icing" of 10g ricotta cheese mixed with a bit of vanilla extract.
The texture on this is somewhere between a heavy cake and a baked pudding - will be more "cake-like" if you bake it longer.
This incorporates the changes that I made after my first try at this.
This version is sweetened with the pear, which can be replaced with whatever else you have on hand, such as strawberries or kiwi fruit or bananas or honeydew --- or sweetener.
I recommend serving it warmed up, and topped with lemon curd or berries or even some whipped cream.
This is what happened when I started looking for a sweet breakfast that was high in folate and fibre.
A great tasting way to add more iron to simple pork loin chops.
More muffin tops than cookies --- much better frozen
