crunchy bbq vegan”chicken”

This was so good! My one regret was not grinding my rice good enough and it made the “chicken” a bit TOO crunchy. I should have just used regular flour but I was told about using rice flour. I will have to buy it next time. We had none of so I just started grinding rice. Anyways turned out a bit too I crunchy but still yummy.

You will need:

-2 cups of flour

– 1/2-1 cup ice water

-4 tablespoons of nutritional yeast

-1 tablespoon poultry seasoning

-1 teaspoon sage

-3 teaspoons onion powder

-3 teaspoons garlic powder

-salt and pepper to taste

-1 package of yves vegan shredded chik’n (or other brand of vegan chicken)

-1/2-1 cup of your favorite vegan bbq sauce

How to prepare:

Open package of yves and pat dry. Sprinkle nutritional yeast and the rest of the spices.

In large bowl mix flour with ice water. Watch not to make it too thin or to thick!

Dunk Yves Chik’n in batter and place in your deep fryer or hot potato either oil. Fry until golden, about 5-8 minutes  depending on fryer temperature!

Remove from.oil,allow to cool for about 3 minutes , toss in bowl with your favorite vegan bbq sauce !

So good can’t wait to make this again  and prefect it !

Mini Vegan Pizzas

These were a hit.  Next time we will make our crusts a bit thinner and try mini pizza pockets but they were still so delicious! We used Daiya cheese shreds and Yves vegan Pepperoni! Being vegan doesn’t mean no more pizza! Aub loved helping us with this one. She even used cookie cutters and made herself and her little sister a special pizza. When kids help grocery shop or prepare the food, I find they enjoy it so much more!

For the Yummy Crust you will need:

-1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

-2 teaspoons of sugar or sweetener of choice

-1/2 teaspoon of salt

-1 package of dry yeast

-1 cup of oat flour (We grinded up regular oats)

-2-3 tablespoons of olive oil(or other oil)

=1 to 1 1 1/2 cups of warm water

-spices of choice, this is optional. Suggestions include oregano, garlic powder, onion powder and basil

Prepping the dough:

We put all of our dry goods into our food processor attachment on our ninja.  Or mix in a large bowl.   Slowly add oil and water while mixing until a soft,sticky dough ball is formed.  Slightly oil a bowl and cover dough ball in it for a minimum of 10 minutes.

Sauce:

Use your favorite pizza sauce. We used Eden Organics Pizza sauce. I think it might be our new favorite. You can also use any canned pizza ot pasta sauce. Or make your own.

Toppings:

Top with your favorite toppings. We used …

-Mushrooms

-Daiya cheese shreds

-Onions

-Red peppers

-spinach

-garlic

-nutritional yeast

-Yves vegan pepperoni

 

I suggest sauteing mushrooms,onions and garlic before using as a topping. It gives it a nice flavor.

Preheat oven to 450 and bake mini pizzas for approximately 15 minutes. Keep an eye out, especially if you are like us and had 2 very special small, thin pizzas we couldn’t let burn!! Le cool 5 minutes and enjoy 🙂
