Funny and talented Mistress Ginger is here to prove she can cook as well as she performs with one unique vegan cookbook!
Mistress Ginger Cooks: Everyday Vegan Food for Everyone is not your typical vegan cook book. As Mistress Gingers first states “I am not a chef, just a traveling showgirl” But don’t let that fool you this is one outrageous & fun cook book filled with easy to make yet delicious vegan recipes.
Unlike other cook books, you will want to read this from start to finish just to see what funny thing she will say next. Humor is a huge part of this book. Her recipes appeal to your stomach while her humor will just tickle your funny bones.
This book is filled with colorful pictures of Mistress Ginger cooking and showing off her creations. The recipes have such brilliant names too.
Here are just a few of some of the recipes you will find:
* Ginger’s Balls
* Call-Me- Anytime Scramble
* Threesome Salad with Vital Vinaigrette
* Pop-My-Cherry Scones
* Hot Mess Dressing
Of course I just had to try some of these awesome recipes right away. I was craving muffins, so I made a batch of Chocolate-Stud Muffins (Pg. 47)
I would best describe theses as a pumpkin-like muffin with chocolate chips. The Original recipe is called “Blueberry-Stud Muffins”, but there were suggestions for other versions and I happen to have some vegan chocolate chips on hand, hence Chocolate-Stud Muffins.
The next recipe I made was one that I just couldn’t wait to make… Peanut-Pea Pasta (Pg. 116)
This is just as amazing as it sounds. Pasta & peas cover with a peanut butter based sauce. If I could eat this every day I would. Such a simple recipe to make, but the taste is far from simple.
The last recipe I made didn’t even require any cooking. This recipe was called Ginger’s Balls (Pg. 139)
If you are a fan of no bake treats you will love them. Super simple, yet insanely delicious raw balls. I rolled half with hemp seeds & the other half with coconut (like the recipe suggests).
Here is the recipe for these balls of yumminess (plus a glimpse into Mistress Ginger’s humor):
Ginger’s Balls *
Yields 10 Balls
½ cup raw cashews
1 cup pitted Medjool dates (about 10 dates)
1 tablespoon peeled and minced fresh ginger
¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
¼ cup hempseeds or unsweetened shredded dried coconut
Put the cashews in a food processor and process until coarsely ground. Add the dates, ginger, and cardamom and process until well combined.
Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls. Put the hempseeds on a plate and roll each ball in the hempseeds. Shake off excess so that a thin coating remains.
Store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator and enjoy my balls within 2 weeks.
Tricks Of The Trade: On the subject of dates, I recommend not moving in with a new lover until you’ve had at least 10 dates.
That’s my personal rule: 10 dates or two months – whichever comes first.
