Vegan Patty Recipes for a Vegan Potluck

Image
Vegan patties are always a hit at vegan potlucks. They stand in for substances of the "M" family and are standard offerings to people who have not yet given up "flesh" foods, or who are "transitioning" to veganism.  They are also handy, savoury, tasty little textured rounds that are easily scooped or forked from the serving pan, and provide extra sources of protein for those persons who think that is necessary in abundance.  They taste good, darn it!  It is not uncommon for the patties to disappear before other items on the table (salads, pasta casseroles, etc.)  An extra pan of patties will not be rejected.

Unless you are making them to be served up as burgers on a bun, the vegan patty we refer to here is smaller in size than a bun burger-- more like the size of regular cookie, or smaller than the lid for a mason jar that you might use to cut out your hamburger patties.  Some of the recipes here are being used as burgers, but just size them down and the…

Apple Pudding Cake: Apfel-Puddingkuchen (From the menu for "Ve Eat" German Favourites at the May 23, 2019 Alberni Veg Supper Club)

Image
If you are looking for a yummy German dessert that is pretty easy to make, this Apple Pudding Cake should take the cake (hahaha).  Some of the really delicious German desserts require the 'from scratch' use of baker's yeast, and for many of us who grew up in the Time of the Instant Cake Mix, we would likely do a pass on that.  Most German desserts are heavy on cream, butter and eggs, and some are not so "vegan-izable"-- or if they are, they are not really that tasty.  But this lovely comforting apple pudding cake is easy to make and doesn't require any ingredients that upset vegans.

This recipe for Apfel-Puddingkuchen is part of the collection for the "Ve Eat" German Favourite Recipes for the May 23, 2019 Alberni Supper Club meeting.  You can find out more about the Supper Club and the other recipes at the bottom of the recipe below.

INGREDIENTS:

4 Apples, peeled and sliced1 Cup Brown Sugar (I used Coconut Sugar which has a mild caramel flavour)1 Cup A…

Warm German Potato Salad (From the menu for "Ve Eat" German Favourites at the May 23, 2019 Alberni Veg Supper Club)

Warm German Potato Salad
My husband's mother was German from Silesia.  His favourite food in the world is German Potato Salad. The recipe here is a contribution from the Alberni Veg Supper Club's recipe collection for May 23, 2019 (see more details under the recipe).  We made it up last night for supper and it was a big hit.  I have to report that we ate it AS supper, so that should justify our eating about 8 of the 12 servings?
This is a vegan version of the traditional German Potato Salad.  Instead of 'real' bacon bits, the recipe calls for Tempeh (a vegan product that is a mix of both soy and wheat proteins).  We think that Ed's mom fried up the onions in butter, but this recipe uses Extra Virgin Olive Oil. (EVOO)  We cheated a bit on the Tempeh crumbles (a recipe included here) when we came across Smoky Tempeh in the organic cooler at our local Walmart.  You might find it there as well (yes, shocking I know!)  I used about half the package, just chopping it up…
