    ohhh, at least she's trying yan...

    long beach vegan eatery is kinda in the same boat as far as the reg food goes. its vegan diner food, and from what i've gathered the cook is female who's been a vegetarian for a couple of years and she hasn't quite got the cookin down, yet... i think the cooking will improve over time. i think the owner is the cook and her boyfriend, a punk dude from new york the place is near my work and as far as i know, they got the only truly vegan french fries in town, other than homemade ones. if i'm gonna be lazy and eat out, i'll keep given them a go. oh yea they got vegan doughnuts too. i havent tried them yet, but would like to. vegan doughnuts are trouble making at home cause of the lots of oil that's needed for the frying.

    i made vegan fruit cake last night. it was a trial run and it came out pretty good. i'm gonna make a lot for our downtown park residents/occupy protesters and take it to them tonight. i'm using fresh persimmons, plums, pears and apples, donations from farmers market.

    I'm not so great at cooking and baking but I like to prepare vegan cookies from time to time as I found a simple recipe and the result is really tasty, here's the recipe :

    The Fabulous Vegan Pecan Cookies-brownies :

    Ingredients for 21 to 22 cookies :

    140 gr flour
    80 gr of brown sugar and 2 bags of vanilla sugar
    2 tbs of potato starch
    160 gr of black chocolate (I used 75% chocolate)
    4 tsp of non-sweetened cocoa
    40 gr non-dairy margarine
    80gr/ml of non-dairy milk (I used soy milk)
    20 gr of ground pecans
    20 gr pecan cut into small pieces
    ˝ tbs of baking powder
    A little bit of salt

    And for the decoration: 20 pecans for on the top

    Preparation:

    In a pan, on low heat, melt the chocolate that you've previously broken into small pieces, with the margarine. Add the soy-milk, stir well to get a homogenous mixture.

    In another recipient, put the flour, the sugars, the cocoa, the powder and the pieces of pecan, the baking powder and the salt, mix well before incorporating it to the chocolate mixture. The dough will get thicker; you might have to knead it by hand, to get a homogenous dough.

    Put the dough into the fridge for about 30 minutes.

    In the mean time, break the pecans into 3 to 4 little pieces.

    Pré-heat the oven on 6, or 180° (356 ° F).

    Take the dough out of the fridge.

    Weigh parts of about 25 gr each, and make balls of it, with your fingers.

    On top of these, place 3 (or more) pieces of pecan, put them onto the oven plate, covered with a baking sheet, making sure the part with the pecan is on top. (Don’t flatten the balls!)

    Bake for 10 minutes.

    Don’t hurry to take them off the plate, 'cause they would break! just be patient and let them cool down before eating them. If you manage to have some left, put them in a tightly closed box and keep them in the fridge. They’re even better the day after, for the brownie-like texture will have had time to develop. Wait 5 minutes after taking them out of the fridge, to let them come to room temperature.

    Ha, I just wanted to post the picture below of the vegan cookies we've baked today (first time my children helped me preparing them and they did a lot !) and I intended writing down the recipe but I noticed that I already did so in 2011, 3 posts above, how time flies !

    Oh, and thanks for those nice pictures @mbrosia, those sweets look tasty ! Unfortunately, Switzerland's not really a very vegan-friendly place so I doubt I could find such a selection in a store... It's better here than in France or Spain, but never as good as what I've seen in the England or Canada...

    imfrusty : I didn't even know that raw tofu existed, is it very different from "normal" tofu ?

    So, here's the photo of today's "creation" :
