It’s been a while since I shared some photos of the food I am testing for Celine & Joni’s new book ‘The Complete Guide to Vegan Foods Substitutions‘. If there is one thing I can say about the recipes I have tried from this book.. all but 1 has been a huge success! That single recipe that caused me some trouble has worked well for every other tester though! The photo you see above is a delicious polenta and chili bake.
This is an incredible sweet baked vegan brie!! I loved spreading it on bread, crackers, toast, and eating it with fresh fruit! I never really ate brie cheese before but this spread is dangerously good! I topped mine with blueberry jam for the photo but it works equally well with apple butter, pumpkin butter, or any other sweet preserve.
This is a little bowl of heaven. This is a rustic pasta bake and tastes fantastic hot or cold. It makes up a bunch and I can see it being a fantastic party food. I have a love/hate relationship with artichokes but this recipe makes me love them! You could easily adapt the spices to change the flavor of the whole dish.
Last but not least is this delicious green temeph casserole.. I didn’t expect to love this recipe as much as I did… I love tempeh, that’s no secret, but this was just plain insanely delicious. I can see eating a bowl of this for dinner or wrapping it up in spring rolls for lunch.. its just FANTASTIC. It’s super healthy, very cleansing, and very garden friendly. It looks to me like Celine & Joni have another hit on their hands… and I cannot wait for you all to get to taste these incredible dishes!!!
