Biscuits and Sausage Gravy
Today I had a craving for an old favorite and so I made the vegan version that I have blogged about in the past but everytime I blog about it I end up making a change to the recipe. Here is a link to the Gravy Recipe I posted. The only change I made today was I used Unsweetened almond milk.. It made such a difference that I ate two biscuits and the combo was dellish!! Using the Unsweetened takes the background sweetness that I never liked out of the gravy. Makes it taste almost exactly like the gravy I grew up with.
|These biscuits turn out good everytime.|
I always use the Recipe from
Sarah Kramer's book How it all vegan.
Homemade Spaghetti Sauce
I have tried many homemade sauces. Some I really liked, problem is I didn't cook those... and others I really haven't liked. Since becoming vegan I have had a really hard time trying to find a pasta sauce that I like the taste of. I don't like sauce that have tons of spices and that way down the tomatoes. So I found 2 new sauce recipes the other night on Allrecipes.com. I decided to try one and ran right out to the store to pick up the one item I didn't have.
This sauce is easy to make.. But prep does take a couple minutes.
|Browned the Yves veggie burger, and cooking the veggies down.|
|I always use my mortar & pestle to grind up all my herbs. I don't like leafy |
dry herbs straight into my food. Its just a picky pet peeve of mine.
So the basil and oregano It turned to powder.
|Right after grinding all the tomatoes together and adding the powdered spices.|
|Starting to cook everything together. Smells so yummy.|
|Right before serving after cooking for about an hour. It looks and tastes really yummy.|
I loved the sauce by its self but I wasn't very found of the peppers and onions.
Maybe if they had been chopped a little smaller.
I love garlic bread with my pasta. But I really don't like that soggy stick in the oven or just let the butter melt bread. I don't like soggy bread at all! I normally use a hard Italian bread but this night all I had was whole wheat sliced bread. Italian bread does have alot better texture.
