This is soooo delicious!  you can serve it as a pie or as a mousse!

vegan mouse pie

  • 1-14-oz. package of extra firm tofu, cut into large chunks
  • 1 ½ – 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened, vanilla almond or soy milk
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or to taste) (I use my nephew’s straight-from-the-tree maple syrup)
  • 1-10 oz. bag vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips – set aside a handful for garnish
  • ½ cup Godiva® chocolate liqueur, optional
  • 1 easy vegan graham cracker crust, if opting for pie

Easy Vegan Graham Cracker Crust

  • 12 graham cracker sheets
  • 2 tablespoons organic brown sugar
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  1. To make the crust, preheat the oven to 375° F. Place the crackers and sugar in a food processor and pulse to combine. Drizzle in the coconut oil and pulse a few more times, until the crust holds together (you can also mix the crust with your hands). Press the crust firmly into a Saladmaster pie pan, and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow crust to cool.
  2. Transfer the tofu, vanilla, almond milk, and maple syrup to a blender and blend well. Melt the chips in an 8” Saladmaster skillet, and add them to the tofu mix. Blend again. If using, add and blend in Godiva chocolate liqueur.
  3. Pour chocolate filling into the pie crust and let it set in the fridge for at least three hours. Slice and serve. If serving as mousse, chill in a bowl in refrigerator until ready to serve.

  • 1 Cup Plum jam or preserves
  • tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. rice vinegar

Put all ingredients into your 1 qt and gently simmer for 30-45 minutes.  If you want a more intense flavor reduce the sauce further before applying.

 

Place the ham in the 10 quart roaster.  Drizzle with the glaze.  Start the roaster on Medium and wait for the valve to click and stand straight up for 8 – 10 minutes before lowering the heat to medium low.  If it continues to click drop the heat slowly.  Bake for a minimum of 15 minutes per pound.  The longer you leave it the more tender and juicy it will be!  I love my Saladmaster System!

Tempeh Spaghetti

1 package Tempeh
½ onion
2 cloves garlic
1 tomato
Peppers
4 – 6 Mushrooms
onion
Eggplant
Sauce

Tempeh is a great choice for people who have difficulty digesting plant-based high-protein foods like beans and legumes or soy foods such as tofu. The process of fermentation makes the soybeans softer, since enzymes produced by the mold predigests a large portion of the basic nutrients.  It’s a great food to help keep blood sugar in control.

Whether mild or fiery, peppers are nutrient-dense. They’re one of the richest sources of vitamins A and C. Just a cup a day can provide more than 100% of your daily needs.

The white mushroom has a special carbohydrate that stokes the metabolic fire and maintains blood sugar levels. A strong metabolism means more burned fat. Three ounces per day for four to six weeks has been said to yield substantial weight loss (this does not mean that exercise and healthy eating is not required). These mushrooms are also high in selenium which not only aids weight loss but is showing to have positive effects on prostate cancer.

Directions:    Preheat skillet and sauté garlic, onion.  Then add Eggplant & mushrooms.  Add the peppers and add tempeh and pasta sauce.
