Alfredo and a Recipe

Tonight's dinner was.. linguine alfredo! With broccoli, tomatoes, and spinach. Oh and some mushrooms. I got the recipe for the cashew alfredo sauce from Tofu Mom, I thought it was a little watery so I put in a pinch of flour and it really thickened up! Chris said this was a pretty good one.. I'm trying to get him to tell me what I should make again and what I shouldn't, haha.

Oh and here's that veganized banana bread recipe.. it is excellent!

Preheat oven to 300ยบ and lightly spray a loaf pan.

Mix about 2 Tbsp of sugar with some cinnamon and coat the edges of the pan. Save the leftover cinnamon sugar mixture for later.

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup margarine
1 egg replacement (I use 1 Tbsp flax meal and 3 Tbsp warm water)
1/2 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
5 1/2 oz. vegan sour cream
2 bananas (the riper the better!)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
a pinch of salt

Cream together the sugar and margarine. Add the egg replacement, cinnamon, vanilla, sour cream, bananas and mix. Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in some nuts if you want, and sprinkle the rest of your cinnamon/sugar on top - it makes a crust! Bake for 55 minutes!

Sorry about the 5.5 oz. of sour cream.. Originally this recipe makes three loaves at a time so.. I had to take 1/3 of 16 oz... I rounded.

All for now!

Wow, thanks for the recipe. I don't know why, but sour cream makes anything taste better! So cool that you successfully veganized this. Did it bass the omni boyfriend test?

Yep, this is THE banana bread! You should definitely check it out. It has absolutely passed the omni boyfriend test :-P and he said I can make it "that way" (aka veganized) all the time!
