Velvet Beet Tofu mini cake – Vegan
Posted by Chitra Jagadish
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Make this valentine’s day memorable with a cute, delicious red velvet dessert. Armed with my heart shaped cookie cutter, I decided to make mini cakes instead of cookies for this year’s celebration.
However, it’s always a challenge to make a Vegan and healthy cake. The texture is achieved by tofu and colour by beet puree. I used Coconut milk almond frosting, where there is a magical taste of coconut and grainy texture of almond.
Yields: 8-10 servings

Cooking time-30-40 minutes
Parsley peanut pesto
This is perfect for vegans! I use this pesto sauce for pasta, pizza base, as sandwich spread, as dip for crunchy veggies like carrot, cucumber and celery, and as salad sauce! One sauce, multi-purpose.. love it!
Parsley is a totally underrated superfood that boosts the immune system and boasts anti-inflammatory properties, and I love to use pesto as a vehicle to get more of it into my diet.
Preparation time-5 minutes
Rasam/Soup – Roasted peanuts and Onion
The Creamy, Comforting and spicy vegan stew. They Made with a simple combination of roasted peanut, tangy tamarind paste and chunky onions. This stew comes together quickly and would be a great weeknight meal.
It doesn’t require much prep and the hot sauce cuts down on the total number of ingredients, so it’s perfect for cold days and lazy weeknights.
Dry-roasted peanuts are good sources of essential nutrients and helps lowering your risk for heart disease. While research is still preliminary and results are conflicting, consuming peanuts may also lower your risk for diabetes, cancer and gallstone disease, according to an article published in the “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition” in March 2009.
Yields: 2-3 servings
Preparation time: 15 minutes

Aubergine Tomato Pasta – Cooked
The dish is full of that unmistakable aubergine flavour. Perfectly complimented by tangines of tomatoes. Result is one of sublime deliciousness.
Aubergines/Egg plants are full of vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre and with the potential to lower cholesterol and help manage weight. It also helps to prevent cancer and lowering cholesterol.
Cooking time: 35- 40 minutes
Pan fried and coated tofu stripes – Vegan
Tofu one always thinks it tastes bland, which can prove wrong with this recipe. If you love spices and seeds, that would be enough to allow you to fall in love with this recipe. I have made this recipe several times lately and I have to say; it is my absolute favorite tofu recipe! It is so easy to make and the flavors are just bursting in your mouth.
To ensure you have the crispiest fries possible, be sure to blot out as much moisture from the tofu as you possibly can. Too much moisture = soggy fries, and we don’t want that!
