Vegetarian Gravy

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
This gravy was AMAZING. Perfect vegan alternative, rich and delicious tasting. Like most people though, I found it a little too thick but if you just add some more water to it you are good to go!

The Best Thai Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
I made this recipe vegan and it turned out great. Instead of using shrimp and mushrooms (fiance doesn't like them) I used carrots, broccoli, bok choy, baby corn cobs and bamboo shoots. I also used soy sauce instead of fish sauce and for the chicken broth I used a "chicken flavour" bouillon that is made from all vegetable ingredients. I also used the lemon grass paste as I went to two different grocery stores and could not find fresh at either. I felt after adding 3 cans of coconut milk (I used light coconut milk) that a lot of the great intense flavours got lost, that being said I had to add a lot more lemon grass and curry (I used green curry) and a bit more sugar and soy sauce. Next time I would probably reduce it to two cans. I also added some cayenne pepper and chilli flakes for spice. Overall, the soup turned out great.

Chunky Corn Chowder (Vegan)

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
This recipe was pretty good and super filling, like another reviewer I added pepper to give it a bit of a kick. Very comforting and hearty dish. It was nice to have a vegan version of this classic as I've been vegetarian for a few years and am trying to make that vegan step and this didn't make me feel like I was missing out. I agree with the author that it does have a more...creamy broth taste, as opposed to a full out cream taste, but I appreciated that as I'm not the biggest fan of cream soups. Definitely worth a try! Makes a lot too.
