I was a little suspicious of the bun recipe as it didn't include any warm water but of course it was fine. These were great & I'm enjoying practicing baking bread. Tomorrow, I'm going to try my hand at pitta bread!
The Inside-Out Cheeseburgers require a little bit of forward planning, they take an hour to cook but you also need to make the cheese filling which has to set in the fridge for an hour before being used. That said they were pretty simple to make even after I managed to throw in the whole ammount of vegetable stock when I was trying to halve the recipe...oh well, now we have leftovers! I served them on the Old Fashioned Hamburger Buns with mayonnaise & vegi bacon. I realised as I was taking the picture that it would've been prettier with some lettuce & tomato but sadly there was none in the house!
The burgers were both crazy delicious and massive. I thought they were even better than the Bacon Cheeseburgers I made recently for Football Food Sunday. The cheese on the inside was perfectly melty & I loved the seitan patty. I also love how versatile these burgers are, as Joni says in the book she's included her four favourite stuffing recipes but really you could stuff them with anything. I have plans to change the flavourings of the seitan a little and bread these to make a vegan chicken kiev.
My third recipe of the day was from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar. I was meant to make these Roasted Almond Cookies with Fleur de Sel last week but I got tattooed instead so I made them today. I'll apologise in advance for the terrible picture, it was dark in my house by about 3pm today & apparently no amount of photoshopping's going to fix this shot!
These were easy to make even though I realised at the last minute that I needed to roast my almonds...clue's in the name there Jojo! This certainly isn't a criticism but the cookies didn't turn out how I'd expected, I hadn't noticed that there were oats in the recipe until the last minute & for some reason I'd assumed they'd be a crispy cookie rather than a soft one. I also have to admit that I was suspicious about topping a cookie with salt but as usual Isa & Terry weren't wrong, these are really delicious! I'm about to go & eat a 5th!
