Vegan Banana-Apple Bread

https://aaronparecki.com/

Ingredients

Method

Whisk all the dry ingredients and spices in a large bowl. In a blender, add all the wet ingredients and the apple and banana. Blend until smooth. If you're adding nuts, chop them up using a food processor. Mix everything together in the large bowl. Drop the batter into a loaf pan, muffin pan, or donut pan. Bake for 40 minutes at 375 degrees. Reduce heat to 350 and bake for 10-15 more minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. It's better to over-bake than under-bake this. Cool completely before slicing. Note: if you don't have baking powder, you can make your own by mixing 1 tsp lemon juice and 1/4 tsp baking soda in a small bowl first. Don't add this to the blender, mix it in when adding everything to the large bowl.

Ingredients

Method

Chop the onion, carrot, and garlic. Set the Instant Pot to "Sautée" and pour in some oil to coat the bottom. Add the onions, carrots and garlic and cook until the onions are translucent. Chop the habanero peppers in halves, and remove the seeds. Add to the pot. In a separate bowl, whisk the vinegar and mustard together until smooth. Add the dry ingredients and continue whisking until smooth. Add everything into the pot and stir well. Make sure there's enough liquid in the pot, you should have only a little bit of the habaneros poking out above the liquid. Add more water as needed. Set the Instant Pot to high pressure for 8 minutes. Let the pressure come down naturally otherwise your room will be filled with habanero steam aka pepper spray. Mix everything in the pot with an immersion blender. Makes ~84 ounces of hot sauce.

Ingredients

Method

Place the sliced tomatoes on a baking sheet lined with foil, and spray with olive oil. Roast the tomatoes under a broiler until they start to bubble. Saute the onion, bell pepper and garlic in the instant pot with olive oil until the onions are translucent. Add the rest of the ingredients the Instant Pot except the tomatoes, and stir well.

Microwave Vegan Chocolate Cake

Ingredients

Method

In a small bowl or pyrex, mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. The mixture should end up liquid, not powdery. For best results, let it sit for 5-10 minutes to let the baking powder activate before cooking. Pour into two small pyrex bowls. Microwave for 2-3 minutes, you'll see the mixture puff up and then stay relatively level. You want to stop cooking it shortly after it levels off, otherwise you will burn it around the edges. A knife should come out clean when it's done.
