Creamy Vegan Corn Chowder by @elavegan 🧡
1/2 tbsp oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 red bell pepper, chopped (150g)
2 stalks celery, chopped (90g)
3 small/medium potatoes, chopped (400g)
4 medium ear fresh corn (about 400 g) or use frozen
4 cups vegetable broth (about 900 ml)
One 15oz can cannellini beans rinsed and drained
1 cup coconut milk canned
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon salt + more to taste
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes or less/more to taste
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
Black pepper to taste
Ground thyme to taste
Fresh herbs to garnish
Chop the bell pepper, potatoes, and celery stalks into bite-sized pieces, mince the garlic and cut corn off the cob. Save about 3/4 cup of corn kernels for later.
Heat oil over medium heat in a large pot and add garlic. Sauté for about a minute or two, then add the chopped bell pepper, celery stalks, corn, and all spices. Sauté for about 4 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Next add the potatoes, the vegetable broth, bay leaf and bring the mixture to a boil.
Once it starts boiling, turn down the heat to a simmer and cook the soup for about 10-12 min or until the potatoes are fork tender.
Take out the bay leaf. Add coconut milk and the rinsed cannellini beans.
Blend the soup using an immersion blender until it's smooth (or leave a few chunks if you prefer). You can also blend the soup in a regular blender. Make sure to work in batches and not to overfill the blender.
Add the remaining corn kernels to the pot. Taste and adjust seasoning. Add more salt/pepper to taste. Garnish with fresh herbs. Enjoy! (Recipe serves 4) #bestofvegan [as posted on elavegan.com, courtesy of @elavegan]

Roasted Blueberry Brioche Donuts by @lifeinthesouth.co ❤️ . Ingredients 19g active dry yeast 200ml soy milk 40g vegan white sugar 1 1/2 tsp salt 1/4 tsp vanilla powder or 1 tsp vanilla essence 200g bread flour 200g all-purpose flour Potato “egg” (ingredients below) 100g vegan butter or cubed coconut oil 1 L canola oil for frying Castro sugar for dusting Potato “egg” 1 tsp potato protein or corn starch 1/8 tsp xanthan gum 1 1/2 tsp ice cold water 2 tsp nutritional yeast Roasted blueberry pastry cream 1 cup blueberries 1/4 cup maple syrup 1/3 cup soaked cashews 1 cup plant-based milk 2 tbsp corn starch pinch of salt Method Heat the plant milk until lukewarm and then add the active yeast, leave to bubble for a few minutes. Sift together the flours, sugar, potato egg, vanilla seeds, and salt together. Gradually pour in the bubbly plant milk mix and then once they are mixed gradually add bits of the vegan butter while kneading or using a bread attachment kneading slowly until homogenized. Place in a bowl, cover with cling wrap and leave to rise for 30-60 minutes until double in size. Once risen, wrap up in cling wrap and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, divide the dough and save the rest to make cinnamon knots, or roll the dough out 1 1/2 cm on a floured surface and press out round shapes or hearts with a cookie cutter. Place the donuts on a floured baking tray, leave to rise until doubled and then once risen. Heat up the canola or any other flavorless oil, add the donuts once the oil is heated to frying temperature (test with a piece of dough, its rise to the top) and fry the donuts 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Once brown on both sides, scoop out with a slotted spoon, on some paper towels to drain. Once cooled, roll the donuts in the castor sugar, make a hole at the one end of the donut with a sharp knife or the tip of the pastry nozzle, and fill with the roasted blueberry pastry cream.

I have a Cajun Spice blend with the following spices: Salt, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Black Pepper, Paprika, Sugar, Basil, Cayenne, Chili Flakes, Oregano, Thyme, Ground Mustard Seed, White Pepper, Allspice, Hickory Smoke Flavor - This is why I prefer using a store-bought blend, makes the process a lot faster!

Let that sit for a bit so it curdles then add Hot Sauce of choice to taste, I used about 1/4 Cup. 5.Once the oil is up to 350-375F, Press 2 Filets together (unless you want to make smaller sandwiches, then just use each Filet as is) & Dredge in Wet, then Dry and repeat to Double Dredge. Carefully add the Double Filet to oil and let it fry for about 3 min or until Golden Brown. 6.Let the Fried Chick’n rest on a plate with paper towels, or if you have a cooling rack, place it on top of a cookie sheet with kitchen towels under the rack. 7.For the Sauce, mix about 1/2 a cup of Mayo, a Tbsp of Vinegar & some more Cajun Seasoning. 8.If you can get a Vegan
