Food Porn

Here we go, I have been saving up my pics all week so here's some food porn for you all (sorta). If it had THV in front of it, than it is a recipe for The Healthful Vegan.




THV Carrot Cardamom Doughnuts They were originally supposed to be cookies, but when I was looking for the sheet pan, I found this old doughnut pan, and turned them into doughnuts. I wanted to make them into muffins yesterday for a more breakfasty thing, but I couldn't find it, so they were just doughnuts again. I added some wild blueberries (frozen) to make them even more healthier. For the original version they're made out of brown rice flour, potato starch, flax seed, bananas, carrot, cinnamon, & cardamom. Very simple, and very good (They taste like cinnamon doughnuts from dun-kin donuts). They're perfect for breakfast with some fruit and a soy yogurt (or nuts).

THV(Tofu only) Stir fry of Napa Cabbage, Chickpeas, Peas, Broccoli, Water Chestnuts, Onions and Soy sauce. Then on the side is the rest of my Orange Pom Tofu from THV. It's probably my favorite tofu recipe. It's really simple, just soy sauce, orange juice, pomegranate molasses and garlic.


THV Chocolate Peppermint French Toast. Needs some more cocoa next time, otherwise very good. perfect with a side of mango.



Beautiful orange tomato, very flavorful. Can you tell which is the orange and which is the tomato?*


The best salad in the world, seriously: my Caveman Salad. It's basically small sups of lettuce filled with peas and dressed with an orange dressing. I'm seriously considering making it a THV recipe, but I'm not sure, it's too easy to be recipe.



THV? Super Yummy Delicious Everything Breakfast Bread. I made it the first time today. It's full of awesome things like brown rice flour, buckwheat flour, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, cloves, dried unsweetened coconut, cashews, raisins, wild blueberries, flax and some other less awesome things like water, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and stevia. It's so good, lightly sweet, and you get a crunch from the cashews, and chewiness from the raisins. Though I had some problems:

  1. It didn't rise. I put a good amount of baking powder in it, but it didn't rise at all. I'm going to buy some yeast and try it again.
  2. It fell apart. Normally just by adding flax it keeps everything together, but not with this. Instead it became very crumbly, so I cut it in half lengthwise, then cut into 12 large cubes, that way it's like a thick, short slice of bread :) And because it's so full of good stuff, it doesn't even need any EB or jam or anything.

If the yeast doesn't work out, I think I'm going to try and make them into muffins instead, that way no problems of cutting them :) Though I will have to rename them the Super Yummy Delicious Everything Magnificent Muffins





Another caveman salad. I've eaten one everyday for 4 days lol, so good.



Breakfast of sliced orange, johna gold apple and some of the Super Yummy Delicious Everything Breakfast Bread.


THV Sunny Tomato Soup. I've been working on this one for a while, I wanted it to be creamy and have a lot of flavor, but I couldn't give it a lot of flavor without overpowering. So this last time I made it was some Sunflower seed butter, and omg, the texture is awesome. I've tried making this with coconut milk, soy milk and stock, but I I found that using stock and the sunbutter gave me the texture I wanted (which is weird because the coconut milk couldn't). It still doesn't have a ton of flavor, but I think I like that. I want it to taste like a tomato soup, not make it with lots of herbs and spices. Other things in the soup are quinoa, peppers, onion, red pepper flakes, garlic ginger and coriander.

Hey, thanks for visiting my blog! :)

You're only 14 and already writing a book? Geez, you're way ahead of me. Can't wait to see it when it comes out. I don't have a gluten allergy, but I think we tend to eat way too much of the same grains, especially wheat, so I'm always interested in getting more gluten-free recipes.

Everything looks delicious, especially those breakfast doughnuts! The tomato is the one on the left, right?

You have some great looking food there. I love the bread. I usually find that if I add 2 tsp of baking powder and 1 tsp of soda things rise fairly well. Anyway rise or not, man I would eat it. Good job!

@Thanks everyone, and yup you guessed right the tomato is on the left, kinda hard to tell though. As for the cookbook, I'll probably be 15 when it comes out, so not so young:) I've been working on it since I was 13

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've enjoyed catching up on yours -- it's hard to believe you're only 14 and already writing a cookbook.
