Around this time last year, I stumbled onto this amazingly creative and delicious recipe by Vegan Dad. It’s a perfect meal for Canadian or American Thanksgiving. The flavors were intricate and, while a little time-consuming to make, the final product was worth it. Here is my picture, but feel free to check out the link above for Vegan Dad’s much better one. His recipes are the bomb!
In honor of all of the Oktoberfests and Apple Harvest Festivals that are going on this time of year, I recently made the apple strudel recipe from The Joy of Vegan Baking by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. This cookbook is one of my standby cookbooks for desserts. I’ve enjoyed many of Colleen’s recipes, but this was my first time trying to make strudel. I think I went a little overboard with the Earth Balance (using 3 times the amount called for) and have learned my lesson for next time. I also omitted the raisins because I’m not a fan of raisins in baked goods. It was flaky, sweet, and quite delicious. Adding almonds is an optional ingredient and I would definitely recommend it (at least on the inside) as it gave it a nice extra crunch.
