How to make a VEGAN Stuffed Pepper : VKL 22


Stuffed peppers can be filled with many different things: from rice, to beans to ahem - meat.  There are zillions of variations of this recipe coming from every corner of the globe.  This one so happens to be Mexican inspired, but feel free to add your own favourite ingredients. 

My Nonna (Italian Grandmother) stuffs hers with risotto and cooks them in broth and white wine - quite different than this recipe but goes to show how versatile this dish can be!

Choose whichever kind of pepper you like. I'm using poblano in this video, which has a very gentle spicy zip-zap.  They are quite small and cook in about 30 minutes.  If you are using a larger pepper such as green/red/yellow/orange bell pepper, you may need to cook these babies longer. 

Watch for the trippy moment near the end.

How To Make The Best African Peanut Stew: VKL episode 20

Oh so yummy-yum-yum!  This stew is one of the nicest, most comforting dishes ever! We discovered a version of this stew many years ago in a vegetarian restaurant in Guelph, and have been making it often ever since.  
The main ingredient is sweet potato, but feel free to use any starchy root that you like.  I've also made this with pumpkin and cassava; both very different but also delicious.

How To Make VEGAN Toasted Coconut Burfi: VKL 17

Indian sweets are known for their sweetness, but when making them at home you are in control of your own sweetie-pie.
Burfi's come in all sorts of shapes and content, from coconut, to chickpea, from carrot to pistachio - it seems a bit disheveled, but they do have one commonality: sugar. 
The closest Western comparison I can think of to burfi is fudge, although they are very VERY different and only really share the similarity in shape and sweetness. 

With only four magical ingredients, you can make this too!
  • 2 cups dried coconut
  • 1 cup vegan condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom powder
  • oil for greasing

  • In a large frying pan, add the dried coconut and toast over medium heat for a few minutes until the world smells like a tropical suntan lotion!
  • Add the condensed milk and stir for a few minutes so everything is same same - but different.
  • Lastly, add the cardamom powder and stir a little bit more.
  • Grease a pan and add the coconut loveliness, pressing it down so that it flat.
  • Chill for at least an hour so that it firms up and then slice
