Snack Time Part I — Cookies ‘n’ Milk!

I went to the home of some of my Pathfinders one Sabbath after church. ¬†We had Sabbath lunch together and then after sunset I taught my Pathfinders how to make these vegan carob chip cookies! ¬†The recipe is adapted from this one. ¬†I didn’t have spelt flour on hand so I used whole wheat pastry, and instead of chocolate chips (which has caffeine) I used carob chips (which is supposed to be nutritionally better for you). ¬†Carob chips can be found at Bulk Barn or your nearest health store.


Vegan Brown Rice Sushi

Since I moved to Montreal, I’ve fallen in love with sushi. ¬†Ever looking for a new challenge, I decided I would try to make my own. ¬†Here’s the step-by-step process in pictures:


Setting out my ingredients — pre-cooked sweet potato, mango, julienned carrots, zucchini, sticky brown rice (with sweet brown rice vinegar), and my sushi mat.


My sticky rice and my tofu “steaks” — tofu marinated in tamari sauce, garlic powder and coriander, and baked with a wheat germ and nutritional yeast coating.


The uncooked rice — Lundberg brown rice which I bought at the health food store.


I wrapped the sushi mat in plastic wrap (which ended being a saving grace!), and then I spread the rice on the yaki sushi nori seaweed (smooth side down).


Roll that bad boy up!


Cut that bad boy up!


The finished product!
