Jackfruit Turkey

November 26th, 2017 Posted by Recipes 0 thoughts on “Jackfruit Turkey”

While the brining is a great way to get layered flavors here. It’s not imperative. I made this just the other day with no fancy brine. I just rinsed the jackfruit after uncanny. And soaked it in freshwater (enough to cover) and 1 tablespoon of salt. It takes out the canned taste and citric acid if your brand has it yet in there. Let it sit an hour at least, up to overnight.

Instructions
  1. To Brine the jackfruit: Open cans of jackfruit and rinse. In a large ziplock bag add all of the brining ingredients and jackfruit. Let sit in fridge overnight.
  2. In the morning drain brine water and collect the jackfruit into another container. Toss out brine bag with contents.
  3. In a large saute pan, heat olive oil over medium heat and add chopped onion. Gently brown the onion for 20 - 30 minutes until translucent and golden brown. Add celery and continue to gently cook until the bottom of the pan is dark and vegetables are caramelized. Deglaze the pan with 1 cup of white wine. Scraping the dark bits on the bottom of the pan, add the jackfruit to the pan with the herbs, spices, maple syrup and vegetable stock. Cover and cook over low heat for 1 1/2 hours. Checking every 20 minutes that the liquid is still covering the jackfruit. Keep heat lowered to a gentle simmer.
  4. The jackfruit will soften and absorb all of the flavors. Remove cover and using the back of a fork or potato masher, mash the jackfruit until it looks like loose stringy meat. Raise the heat under your pan to medium and sauté the meat until the liquid has all absorbed and it becomes a little bit dried out. This can take about 30 minutes. It will look drier than it is. Stir often to avoid sticking and burning.

  5. Serve hot. Can be stored up to a week in the fridge or frozen for later.

  1. In a small bowl cover the dried mushrooms with 1 cup of boiling water. Allow to sit about 20 minutes. Keeping the water, strain out the mushrooms and chop.
  2. Thinly slice the white or brown mushrooms. In a large saute pan, heat oil and add onions, cook over medium heat for 30 minutes, stirring constantly until caramelized and brown. Add in all of the mushrooms. Sauté until reduced and lightly browned. add herbs and pepper. Deglaze the pan with the hot vegetable stock. Add the porcini mushroom liquid now too. Scrape the bottom of the pan to get the nice brown bits up. Lots of flavor there! Bring to a gentle boil. Allow to simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix the flour with 1/2 cup COLD water. Stir until smooth. Making sure the gravy is at a low boil, stir in the flour mixture, stirring the graving until its completely combined. If you don't, you will get a lumpy gravy. Allow to cook an additional 5-10 minutes to thicken and cook the flour.
  4. Serve hot. Store for 1 week in the fridge.

Instructions
  1. To make Cookie Dough… Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Stir to mix. Set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer, combine sugar, warm coconut oil, warm applesauce and vanilla. Mix on low until sugar is dissolved. 2-3 minutes.
  3. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix on low until the dough comes together and all of the ingredients are combined. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15-30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350. Clear your work area and create space to roll out the dough. Roll dough to ¼” thickness and cut out 2” circles. Place circles on parchment lined cookie sheets. Cookies will not spread much so 1” apart is fine. Bake at 350 for 7-9 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack and make Cream Filling.
  5. To Make Vanilla Cream Filling… Using a whip attachment on your mixer, beat the palm shortening at high speed, until light and fluffy and doubled in size. About 3-5 minutes. Slowly add in the powdered sugar and rice milk, mix until incorporated. Add vanilla.
  6. On cooled cookies, spoon out 1 TBL of Cream Filling onto ½ of the cookie sides and cover with opposing cookie. Allow to cool in fridge to set.
  7. Enjoy!

Crispy Gluten Free and Vegan Sugar Cookies

February 23rd, 2017 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “Crispy Gluten Free and Vegan Sugar Cookies”

My grandma Lucy was the queen of sugar cookies. At Christmas she would make hundreds of thin crispy santas, bells and candy canes. I took for granted that each one was hand cut and ate them like crazy… but seriously what a job! hundreds! I dont know how she had the time. She had a job AND had 9 kids. Amazing. Her cookies were kinda like heaven.

And naturally, she used pure butter and glazed them with a sweet egg wash. The old fashioned way.

When we got our firsts requests for gluten free and vegan sugar cookies, my daughter was loving those soft cakey cookies from the grocery store. Yuck. But with that in mind, I created something similar at the bakery. We started out with a soft chewy sugar cookie. They were awesome, but I was missing my grandma’s thin crisps. So I tweaked the flour blend (gasp!) to take away the chewy and leave only crisp!

We LOVE them! They are not too sweet. You can easily just eat them as is, but we like to have fun and decorate them with our Vegan Royal Icing. THAT’s a cool recipe! Coming soon so stay tuned.

Buttermilk Donuts

January 9th, 2017 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “Buttermilk Donuts”

We usually use our Famous Karma Baker GF Flour to make donuts, but I was looking for something a little different. A nice hearty flavor that oats provide nicely. These turned out better than I hoped. We now have them everyday at the Karma Baker bakery.

Be sure to use Certified gluten free oats, if you are celiac.  Also to make the buttermilk, it’s important to use a high protein milk. We use soy and get the best results. I’m afraid rice milk will not work well here. Nut milks are the next best choice.
