As it turned out I am doing this VEGANMOFO thing unofficially, that is I was supposed to register to take part in it, but what the heck, there more people do it the better – I guess that is the idea of this whole thing.  And I have checked out other blogs that are officially signed up to do it, some of them have like 1 post since Oct 1…soo whatever.

Anywho, now to the star of today’s show: A Vegan Coleslaw Divine from V-Cuisine cookbook.  This is currenltly one of my favourite salads, it is very easy to make, healthy, vegan, and delicious, as are most of the vegan foods 🙂

I just love the healthy look of this salad….

And for the dessert I am having an orange sherbet:

And all that is – just one peeled orange blended with a cup of plain ice (of course in my Vita Mix).

This is my second breadloaf ever made, and, man, I am finding these home-made breads really easy to whip up and delicious.

This recipe is taken from the Whole Food Recipes for Better Living Cookbook that came with my Vita Mix.  The bread turned out very nice and healthy, I love it because all you have to do is put some jam on it and it tastes like a real peanut butter sandwich, except the peanut butter is inside the bread.  I made it using my Vita Mix but it may be easily made without it if you are not so lucky and don’t have a Vita Mix machine.

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

4 teaspoons baking powder (does anyone else think that it is too much?)

1 1/2 cups soy milk

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 cup natural peanut butter (I made mine in the Vita Mix)

Preheat oven to 350F and spreay an 8 1/2 by 4 1/2 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.  Combine flours, salt, and baking powder in a medium sized bowl and set aside.  Place milk, sugar, and peanut butter into a large mixing bowl and whip together either by hand or with a hand mixer or put it in the Vita Mix.  Transfer the dry ingredients into wet and combine until everything is moistened.  Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake for 50 or more minutes until the knife inserted in the center of bread comes out clean.
