Oil Free Balsamic Vinaigrette -Video

The recipe

Here is a video of the no-oil Balsamic Vinegar Dressing that I demonstrated at the Cookery Demo on August 17th. The “secrect” ingredient here is Guar Gum that makes the dressing thick and rich without the aid of oil. Without oil you cannot emulsify a vinaigrette but the gum does a great job at replacing the oil.

You can make it without the Guar Gum, but it will be a little watery. My suggestion would be to add some plant-based mayonnaise to the mix which will make it thick and creamy.

This will store in a jar in the ‘fridge for a week or more.

Non-Dairy Cheese Sauce – Video

The recipe

This is the non-diary cheese sauce recipe that i demonstrated in the cookery demonstration on August 17th 2013. This is one of my favourite plant-based recipes – it is not cheese but it does have a superbly savoury flavour and a perfect texture to use as a substitute to a dairy roux based cheese sauce.

Chocolate and Walnut Brownies – Video

The recipe

I love these simple and delicious walnut brownies.  In this video i used cashews as one of the attendees at the Cookery Demo is allergic to walnuts – but the principle is the same.

if you make them – please comment.

Cauliflower & Grain Salad – Video

The recipe

This is the salad that we both really enjoyed whilst on holiday in Oman this summer.  It is at once light and easy to eat when it is hot, but it sustains you through the afternoon.  The original used barley, but i used mixed grains.

You can use either just Balsamic Vinegar on this or the dressing shown on the video.

The video was filmed at the cookery demo that I gave on August 17th 2013.
