Hello there. I am back with a wonderful dessert idea.

Strawberry Lemonade Pie by Feasting on Fruit.

This is tangy and sweet, gorgeous to look at and probably not like any other dessert you have tasted summer.

It’s easy. It’s Vegan. Naturally! To get you started, here’s what’s in it.

INGREDIENTS
1 ripe banana
1/2 cup non-dairy milk
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup evaporated cane juice (I did not use coconut sugar for color purposes, but you can substitute if you wish)
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tbsp cornstarch
4-5 strawberries
CRUST
1 cup quick oats (or rolled oats pulsed in the blender)
3 tbsp water
2 tbsp coconut sugar

You can get evaporated cane juice at Trader Joe’s and order on Amazon.com.

Now you’ve seen in the ingredients, if you are sold on trying out this wonderful recipe, go to the Feasting on Fruit website for directions and more »

Tip: When fresh strawberries are unavailable, substitute frozen as follows: if unsweetened, use equal amounts as fresh; if sweetened, reduce sugar in recipe by 1 cup per quart of strawberries; if sweetened with sugar syrup, reduce the amount of liquid in the recipe.

Grilled Veggie Taco Bowl

Hey there, it’s Patsy.

I don’t care a thing about grilling veggies. I am not a grilling kinda girl. So why am I posting a recipe called “Grilled Veggie Taco Bowl”?

Well, YOU might like to grill veggies, and even if like me you don’t this is still the basis for a delicious taco bowl.

I put mine together based on the picture above leaving out the grilled veggies.

Layer it up with your favourite vegan spanish rice recipes. Add black beans. Chopped avocado. Chopped red onions. Sliced jalapenas. Lotsa salsa. Loads of your favourite greens. Some crunchy chips. Garnish it with vegan cheese shreds and wedges of lemon and lime.

I sometimes top it with vegan sour cream and serve guacamole on the side. Who can ever get enough?

Tip: I went to a cookout early summer and several giant bowls of guacamole were set out. When dipping into a bowl I discovered that an avocado seed had been left in it. When I held it up in the spoon and said, “oh look” the hostess indulgently laughed, saying that keeps if from browning.

Imagine. All the years I put lemon juice in my guacamole which I don’t really like the taste of very much when I needn’t do it at all! I could have left a seed in instead. Am I the only one in the universe who didn’t know this? Pretty much, huh? Yet another example of you are never too old to learn.
