Are you drooling yet? These are just a few of the delicious, vegan recipes one will find at My Naturally Frugal Family.
Rachel, the head chef and author of My Naturally Frugal Family, is a wife and mother. In 2011, she and her family began a journey towards better health via better food. To that end, they planted 10 raised gardens, a ton of fruit trees (like cherry, plum, and peach), several pecan trees, and an assortment of berry bushes. They also gave up meat. Rachel even went a step further and adopted a vegan diet (her family is vegetarian).
Changing their diet rewarded everyone in the family with better health. In Rachel's words, "... everyone feels better and doesn't get sick nearly as often."
Rachel is passionate about food and creates the most delicious recipes which she shares on her blog. To me, visiting My Naturally Frugal Family is like entering a neighborhood delicatessen where yummy offerings are on display. I salivate ... my tummy growls ... and I can't wait to dig in!
Rachel has very graciously allowed me to share one of her recipes with you. Enjoy ...
- 1 C butternut squash roasted and squished (technical term)
- 2 ener-G egg replacers
- 1/2 C vegetable oil
- 1/4 C water
- 1 C sugar
- 1/2 C brown sugar
- 1 3/4 C all purpose unbleached flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt (Rachel used kosher)
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp cardamom
- Mix all of this together and pour into a greased bread pan. Rachel topped it with a sprinkling of turbinado sugar to give it a little crunch (plus who doesn't like fat sugar crystals).
- Bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes.
