Dessert or breakfast, or anything (gluten free, vegetarian)

One of my all-time favorites is cottage cheese, but I don’t buy it. When you make it the taste is very different and there are not preservatives added.

All you need is: cooking time 15-20 mins

pot or non-stick pan (my preference)

cheese-cloth

colander/strainer

ladle

Ingredients :

4 cups  milk

2-3 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar

While milk is warming line the strainer with cheese-cloth – should have at least 2 layers

Heat milk in the pan almost to the boil on the medium fire, then lower it to min.

Pour lemon juice into milk one spoon at the time and then stir. The milk will start curdling immediately, of not all the mild curdled add another spoon of lemon juice and stir again.

When all the milk has divided into curdle and clear (yellowish) whey – turn off the fire.

Then pour or ladle the whole thing into a lined strainer and rinse it with water (to get rid of lemony taste). Take out the cheese-clothe with all there is in it and squeeze it gently or leave it to drain.

If you leave it for long time or put under  press it will become very solid (paneer)- so you can cut it!

Chinese Steamed Buns, filled with Sweet Adzuki Bean Paste. — Vegan Food For Peace

A recipe for a sweet comforting breakfast. These buns are definitely best eaten straight away, while still warm …but I have discovered that they revive when lightly toasted. 🙂 A simple enough recipe, a bit of faff involved …particularly if you make your own adzuki bean paste (which is worth it I think…). You can buy […]
