I used the recipe from the Southern Vegan blog. I first browned some Gimme Lean sausage in oil.

Made a good salad today with hot sauce tofu, avocado, coconut bacon and vegan ranch!
Then my sweet tooth was begging me to make a cake but I didn't feel like baking. Browsed the internet for steamed cakes and found a recipe for steamed semolina pineapple cake and used apple sauce instead of pineapple. Came out great! I also added sultanas to mine.
Steamed Cake Recipe
1 cup semolina flour
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
a couple handfuls of sultanas
Mix all ingredients and pour into a greased glass bowl or pan that fit into your steamer apparatus. Make sure you have enough water in the lower pot of your steamer so as to not have it dry out. I used a small pyrex bowl and steamed it inside a small pot with a steamer attachment. Steam for 35-40 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Some crumbs attached to it are ok. Let cool before turning out and cutting into.

Saw this video on Facebook and loved the simplicity of it. I already know how to make shepherd's pie but thought I'd try to go by this recipe.

Great soup recipe from The Happy Pear cookbook. I used Japanese yam and it was beautiful. Smooth and creamy.

I'll start with the black bean burgers I made tonight after work. Very simple, just black beans, onions, garlic, herbs, spices and oats to bind the mixture. Bake for 30 minutes flipping halfway and you've got a tasty burger. One can black beans makes 4 burgers.
