TT means a recipe is 'Tried and Tested'

Vegan Recipe Swap/Compilation! (cakes, pancakes, curries, chilli)

A few other vegans and I always seem to be hungry for new recipe ideas, so I thought I'd make a thread where we can add, compile and try recipes together, giving each other notes and recommendations. Comment below if you have any recipes to share or request Thanks guys!

Easy/Cheap/Starter Vegan Meals (best for new vegans):
Spoiler:
Show
- Beans on Toast (most bread is vegan, check ingredients, most beans are vegan except heinz no added sugar)
- Pasta and sauce (almost all dry pasta / pasta sauces are vegan) - you can add vegan mince/veggies
- Biscoff spread on toast
- List of vegan cereals:
Spoiler:
Show
(ingredients can vary from brand to brand, so its always good to check - a quick google search should do)

- Weetabix
- Porridge
- Cornflakes


Breakfast:
Spoiler:
Show
- French toast TT (can use other milks or syrup - thicker/sturdy bread is better so it doesnt fall apart) https://minimalistbaker.com/basic-vegan-french-toast/
-
Scrambled Tofu TT (namak salt optional, but adds egg taste) https://simpleveganblog.com/simple-tofu-scramble/

Main Courses:

Desserts:
Spoiler:

- Cheesecake TT https://minimalistbaker.com/easy-bak...cake-vegan-gf/ from boulderingislife "tried and tested - it is awesome!"
- 'Fudgy' brownies TT https://www.sweetestmenu.com/vegan-brownies/ from TheAnxiousSloth- Sweet Potato Brownies TT https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/sw...ownies-recipe/ from mpaprika- Orange/Cranberry muffins - (boulderingislife's recipe!)

Orange and Cranberry Muffins:
Ingredient list:
• Self-raising flour, sugar, baking powder, dried cranberries, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, soya cream, maple syrup, oranges, soya milk, cyder vinegar, desicated coconut (optional), bran flakes (optional).

Dry mix:
• Sieve 16oz (453g) of self-raising flour
• Sieve 6oz (170g) of sugar
• Sieve 2 heaped teaspoons of baking powder
• 1 handful of dried cranberries (Waitrose one is the best)

Wet mix:
• 200ml of vegetable oil
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 fluid ounce of maple syrup
• 1 fluid ounce of soya cream
• Citrate finely 3 medium sized (or 2 large) oranges and add shavings to the wet mix. Juice the oranges and add juice to wet mix.
• Top up wet mix with soya milk to 720ml

Method:
1. Prepare dry mix in a mixing bowl. Sieve all the flour, sugar and baking powder into the bowl and add cranberries.
2. Add the oil to a measuring jug, add the other ingredients. Add the soya milk last, topping up the jug till it reaches 720ml
3. Mix the wet mix, then pour it into the dry mix. Before mixing, add 2 teaspoons of apple cyder vinegar
4. Fill the muffin cases 4/5 full. Use muffin trays else the cups will sag under the weight.
5. Optional: Top the muffins with desiccated coconut, mashed bran flakes, and a bit of sugar.
6. Cook the muffins on 160C for 25-30 minutes in the middle shelf. The muffins should brown slightly and the best way to test whether they are done is by sticking a fork or knife into the muffin. If they come out clean the muffins are done.

- Biscoff Biscuits (They are already vegan - even cream ones - but boulderingislife is fussy about cross-contamination (and its fun to bake!) so thank you to him for this recipe!

Just to clarify, cream refers to the wet mix. This is the cream once mixed and whisked. Also, after taking it out from the fridge, two methods: shove it into a biscuit press mold machine like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYFMi3Z0ypk That's what I used. Alternatively you could try roll it out and use normal hand press molds, but I couldn't get this to work!

Proposed format: we post recipes here and you as the OP posts it to post 1 under the relevant category: eg: baking, chinese, indian, Mediterranean, etc?? That way recipes don’t get lost as this thread grows.

I’ll get things going: vegan cheesecake recipe (tried and tested - it is awesome!)
https://minimalistbaker.com/easy-bak...cake-vegan-gf/

Edit: links better than typed out recipes! Typed recipes should be made somewhere like pinterest or some other website and linked to here, to keep it clean.

Sounds like a great idea, I'll keep editing the start of the thread up there ^^ and adding things in. I like the idea of a "chinese" "Mediterranean" section etc., should I put those under "main Courses"? or should I just do away with main courses and sort it by area straight away instead?
:woo: first recipe lol. I'll add that in! (ill defo have to try it out too!)

Edit: yes, link would defo be better. I was thinking for any typed recipes, we could always put it in a spoiler, would that still take up too much space? probably right?

Edit: omg i just found a vegan biscoff/biscoff spread cheesecake wtf? idk if its any good?? https://www.bakingmad.com/recipes/de...off-cheesecake

Also, when it says "vegan cream cheese" for the filling, like I never made a cheesecake and have no idea what Im doing, can I use this violife greek cheese? Or is that totally the wrong kind of cheese to use? lol I'm clueless

oh my God, I just tried this french toast recipe and it was to die for. Usually I dont have all the ingredients needed for a recipe, but I had everything for this one alraedy lol (you can use any milk, not just almond, I used soy. And you dont need agave syrup, I just used maple - much cheaper!)
https://minimalistbaker.com/basic-vegan-french-toast/
All I can say is, my bread went soggy and fell apart. I'm going shopping today and I'm going to get some thicc bread to try this with so it doesnt fall apart. Might be my new favourite breakfast!

I’ll search it and send you a link to correct one. Re: format, that sounds good. Re: spoiler, great idea if someone doesn’t want to put it on pinterest. :woo:

This isn't a recipe but Creative Nature do vegan baking mixes and their chocolate brownie mix makes amazing brownies! :u: You just need to add dairy free butter and use flaxseeds to replace eggs.

Ooo, I think I've tried that brownie mix before! Would recommend, tastes good even when its out of date :facepalm: lol Maybe I'll add it as a note in the desserts section anyway :L It's a bit blooming expensive tho iirc (like £5??), so I probably wouldn't get it again. I wonder if an actual full recipe would be cheaper probably right?

omg, if you guys wanted it, I'd totally do it haha.
I just wanted to ask, you know the cheesecake recipe lists "rolled oats"? Do they have to be rolled? Can I just use normal, like porridge oats? haha... rolled ones seem more expensive lol. Thank you oh cheese-cakey one :heart:

Ooo, I'll add that recipe in Funnily enough, I was just doing some online shopping and checking if I had stuff in the cupboard when I saw a bag of the exact brownie mix you're talking about. How funny, didn't even realise I had any lol

Guys, I've just finsihed typing my online shop for this week, and Ive got the ingredients to try:
the cheesecake recipe,
A new chilli recipe I want to attempt https://www.alphafoodie.com/simple-v...ili-con-carne/
Some wraps (w/ either the chilli or fish fingers/ltomato/avocado/lettuce mmm)
and my favourite tried and tested tomato soup recipe that's to die for! I have a copy of it in my recipe book but cant find it online. Thinking of adding a pic in a spoiler (or on a pic site then inserting the link).
For now, this is the closest recipe I can find - https://30dayvegan.viva.org.uk/recip...st-tomato-soup

Are there any new recipes you guys plan on attempting in the coming days/weeks?

heres how that french toast went: as you can see it just disintegrated in the middle :C was super yummy apart from that (I added more syrup and also some whipped cream ontop lol). I'm desperate to get some sturdier bread to try and make it properly now!
