World vegan day.. sushi and cupcakes anyone?

It’s world vegan day. I admit, I completely forgot. This happens every year 😛  Still, I cooked a vegan meal for 30 so that’s not a bad way to spend world vegan day! I would never have posted something as boring as I did this morning if I had remembered *face palm*. Ahem, onto bigger and better things like… this little beauty!

The menu today was

  • sushi
  • wasabi sauce (waaay toned down wasabi!)
  • asian-y stir fry
  • Japanese coleslaw with tofu mayo
  • Homemade cola drink

aaand.. vegan jammy vanilla cupcakes topped with carob mousse. These babies are definitely a sometimes food. Don’t be fooled by the word “carob!” But anyway, what better day to blog a treat than today?

I know you’re all perfectly capable of making sushi/ googling how to make sushi! I won’t insult your intelligence. :d

Vegan mousse cakes:

Don’t let the innocent cupcake fool you: these are a vehicle for mousse.

Make a batch of regular vegan vanilla cupcakes such as these.http://whippedbaking.com/2012/04/11/very-vanilla-vegan-cupcakes/.  If you plan to make them gluten free, substitute 1/3 rice flour, 1/3 quinoa flour, 1/3 buckwheat flour and on top of this 1 tspn xantham gum and 1 tbspn tapioca starch. Fill each muffin case up 1/3 full, fill with strawberry jam and add a bit more batter over top. Bake like the instructions say..

Now, mousse.

250 grams firm silken tofu

170g extra virgin coconut oil

1/2 cup soy milk

1/2 cup carob powder

3/4 cup raw sugar OR 75 drops liquid stevia

1 tspn vanilla essence

Method:

Melt the coconut oil in a pan. Meanwhile, in a food processor, mix the rest of ingredients until smooth. Add melted oil and process. Transfer to a bowl (stainless steel is good, it makes it firm up faster) and let it set in fridge for 2 hours.

Once cupcakes are cool, pipe a swirl of mousse around them, and sprinkle with coconut.

Happy world vegan day!
