Chocolate Fudge Sauce 

Perfect for hot fudge sundaes! 

When we were traveling in Provence, France several years ago, we found vegan chocolate sauce in a local store and were pretty excited about it. So, we made this silly video — the first one I ever made on Instagram when we were limited to 15 seconds! — you might enjoy watching. I’m warning you. It’s pretty silly. 

Anyway, I thought I’d gift you with a delicious recipe reprinted from The Joy of Vegan Baking.

Vegan Chocolate Fudge Sauce Recipe

Ingredients

1 tablespoon ground kudzu root
2 tablespoons water
1 cup granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1 cup nondairy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Dissolve the 1 tablespoon of kudzu into 2 tablespoons of water. Stir well to combine, and make sure it’s well dissolved.

Add the sugar, salt, and cocoa to a saucepan. Whisk these dry ingredients thoroughly before adding the milk, vanilla, and dissolved kudzu. Stir over medium heat. Boil for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and either serve hot or allow to cool. You can easily heat it up in the microwave anytime you want hot fudge sauce. 

Yield: 1-1/2 cups

Fluffy Okara Pancakes

In one of my recent virtual cooking classes, I taught my students how to make homemade soy milk. As everyone learned, when the milk is done, what you’re left with at the end is okara.

Okara is the name for the soybean pulp left over when making soy milk. It has a delicious nutty flavor and can be added to smoothies, baked goods, and oatmeal — adding flavor, texture, moisture, and nutrients. It can also be used to make these delicious fluffy, oil-free, fat-free pancakes!

Ingredients
1 cup all-purpose flour 
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup nondairy milk
1/2 cup okara
Dash of salt

Directions

Add the dry ingredients to a mixing bowl, and thoroughly combine. Then add the milk and okara, and stir / whisk until thoroughly mixed into a pourable batter. 

Heat up a nonstick skillet with or without some oil or nondairy butter, and ladle some batter onto the hot pan into the size pancakes you prefer. Repeat until you use up all the batter. 

Serve with your favorite nondairy butter, syrup, and fresh fruit.

Yield: Makes about 6-8 pancakes, depending on the size
