I’m starting a cook through blog series on the Vegan College Cookbook starting tomorrow. you can view my blog at this link: http://reasoningvegan.blogspot.com/ so please subscribe so you’ll be aware of my review of each recipe!
@peppermintcherry Ha Ha! I don’t blame you guys for sneaking samples. I don’t have very much patience for letting things cool. (Or sit to firm or whatever.) I’m like, I just made this! I wanna eat it now!
Sesame oil sounds amazing! I’ll have to see if I can get some at a reasonable price.
You’re going to love that salad. It’s AMAZING. My mom for years made something almost identical, but her’s requires it to sit over night, which is so hard to do(everyone would sneak into the kitchen at night to get a forkful, even though it wasn’t quite done).
My other suggestion to that salad is, if you can find sesame oil, especially the kind that a little bit of sesame and a whole lot of soybean oil(it’s 1/3 the price of pure, triple the size and tastes exactly the same) cut the oil down a bit and get it the rest of the measurement with the sesame oil.
@peppermintcherry I found the stuff you were talking about! ^_^ I bought two different gluten-free, vegan flavors, and I can’t wait to try them out. I have all the ingredients for the ancient japanese secret salad thingy now, so I can FINALLY make it! *happyhappyhappy!* I’ll be posting about it within the next few days.
For real. You are so right about nooch. I made a “creamy” recipe that ended up a bit on the bland side, and I added nooch, and it made it much less boring. Ha ha!
@babydollvain thai kitchen makes a gluten free ramen type thing, it’s actually spring green onion flavor, well the one I buy is, but I know they do make other flavors that are gluten free. You should be able to get it at walmart and it’s sooooo much cheaper than mcdougall’s stuff. I haven’t tried putting nutritional yeast in ramen that I use the seasoning packet with. When my brother moved out he left a case of beef ramen, so I just ate the noodles, leaving out the packet. I would put soy sauce, garlic powder, onion powder and nutritional yeast to make it kinda like beef ramen.
Seriously though, *everything* tastes better with nooch. I’m only able to buy it in bulk where I live, and I don’t believe it’s red star, I cannot imagine different brands taste different.
