The One With the Vegan Brownies

One thing I'm discovering about veganism - it doesn't mean no fun. There are plenty of vegan things that taste yummy. Really yummy. I even tried my hand at some dessert.
Vegan Brownies

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly oil a 9x13 inch Pyrex pan. 
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add sugar, water, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Use a mixer on medium to combine completely.
Pour batter into the pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, until a fork inserted into the middle comes out clean. 

I found this recipe that inspired the whole thing. But I made some adjustments to improve the taste. These are very rich, which is a good thing. :-)

  1. Sometime you should try this recipe. It's from Alicia Silverstone's book The Kind Life, which I highly recommend. It's not dessert (technically) but I find it delivious and therefore eat it for dessert sometimes.

    6 sunchokes (like little potatoes)
    3 large leeks
    1 large daikon radish
    1 tbsp vegetable oil
    pinch of salt
    3 tbsp maple syrup

    Preheat the ove to 350. Clean and cut up all the veggies into thin slices. Coat them in the vegetable oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake for ten minutes

    Remove from the oven. Toss and coat the veggies in the maple syrup.
    Cook another 10-15 minutes until veggies are cooked through and yummy crispy:)

    If you want, add some more salt and maple syrup to taste. Once you've tasted all the veggies, you can modify to taste. At this point I pretty much use only the daikon radish because it is out of this world delicious.


  2. I'll have to see if this works! Pinned it.
