A few vegan sweet treats.
First, chocolate cups with raspberry coulis and custard. I got these chocolate cups reduced to clear from the grocery store--I saw that bright green sticker and crossed my fingers and was pleased to find they were ninja vegan. I filled the cups up with cinnamon custard and then topped it with simple rasbperry coulis for a sweet and fancy-feeling end to a meal (with actually very little work).
My other sweet on offer today wasn't a dessert... it was dinner. You know how kids have this dream that when they are grown-up they'll eat chocolate for dinner and stay up as late as they want? Well, that's what Andy and I did a few weeks ago. These chocolate pancakes (from Vegan with a Vengeance) were begging for an ice cream topping, but unfortunately we got to the grocery store 20 minutes after it closed. Instead, we whipped up some strawberry syrup with silken tofu for a creamy strawberry topping that went really well with the chocolate pancakes. I wouldn't suggest eating like this on a regular basis, but for a naughty Saturday night it was a great dinner.
