Peanut Purée Soufflé

Source:Recipes for a Small Planet
Date tried:July 23, 2017
Yield: 6 servings
Time needed:1 hour

Prior Preparation needed
Cook raw peanuts until very tender. (Since peanuts are actually a sort of bean, I used the same timing as for dried beans and that worked well.) See instructions below on making the purée.

Well,just after trying “a soufflé that any fool can make”, here is a much more tricky one. This came out quite nicely, but the flavour was not remarkable and I don’t consider the result to be worth the effort.

Time to make: 20-30 minutes.

The simple flour and water dough is kneaded and then fried like bannock before being crumbled and drenched in butter and honey for a simple, but satisfying dessert.  One might call it Ethiopian popcorn.

Date tried: June 22, 2015
Yield: 6-8 servings
Time needed: 20-30 minutes

A two-in-one recipe as you get the Honey-Mustard Dressing as well. I have always loved the combination of spinach and oranges and this dressing sets them off very well. Prepare the dressing first and set aside until ready to serve.

This is one of several beverage recipes which are basically water flavoured with seeds. Very easy to prepare and a lovely refreshing beverage with health benefits too.  As the author explains:

“Flax seeds are a natural laxative. You can drink this daily for your health. Mix the powder with hot water and sweeten it with  a little bit of honey. Have it before bedtime for it also has relaxing qualities.”

Egg Nog

Date tried: May 9, 2014
Yield: 12 servings
Time needed: 10 minutes

Get out your mixer for this one.  It calls for both whipped cream and stiffly beaten egg whites.  And with all that beaten material folded in, it seems almost like drinking air.  Unfortunately I did not have rum at home to spike it with.  But it was still quite good.

Pancake, Waffle or Camping Bread Mix

Source: Recipes for a Small Planet
Date tried: July 12, 2013
Yield: 6 ½ cups
Time needed: less than 10 minutes

Baking mixes are always handy.  Here is a high-protein mix for using at home or while camping whether you want pancakes, waffles or bread.

Pancakes from RSP mixPancake, Waffle or Camping Bread Mix
4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup soy flour
2 Tbsp. baking powder
1 Tbsp. salt
½ cup non-instant dry milk (or 2/3 cup instant dry milk)

Stir these ingredients together and store in a tightly-covered jar or can.  Pack into a plastic bag for camping.

To use, take 1½ cups of this mix and add:
1-2 eggs (or powdered eggs)
2 Tbsp. oil
2 Tbsp. honey (or sugar)
Water or milk to bring batter to desired consistency.

Water and powdered eggs alone will produce a good campfire bread.
Use the oil and honey as well for pancakes or waffles.  A thicker batter makes good pancakes, a thinner batter is best for waffles.
