Vegan peanut butter cookies
Hiya! Today we will discuss about Vegan peanut butter cookies Recipe


100g dairy-free margarine
100g caster sugar
2 tbsp vanilla paste
100g crunchy peanut butter
225g plain flour
3 tbsp roasted peanuts, split in half


Beat the margarine, sugar and vanilla using an electric whisk for 1 min until pale and smooth, then mix in the peanut butter and flour until fully incorporated. Bring together into a smooth dough with your hands.

Roll out the dough between two sheets of baking parchment until it’s about 1cm thick. If the dough is very soft (this will depend on the margarine used), chill for 45 mins until firmed slightly. Heat the oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3 and line one large or two medium baking trays with baking parchment.

Cut circles out of the dough using an 8cm cookie cutter, placing the rounds on the lined baking trays. Press a few peanut halves, cut side-up, firmly into the tops of the biscuits. Bake for 12-15 mins until turning lightly golden around the edges. Leave to cool on the trays for 5 mins, then lift onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Salt beef sandwich 7958446

Simple salt beef

If you can, allow the pickled beef to come up to room temperature before you start by leaving it on the kitchen counter for an hour. It will speed up the cooking time. Put the beef in a large pan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, skimming away any foamy scum that rises to the surface. Once the foam has been mostly removed, add all the other ingredients. Adding them now means they don’t get in the way of the skimming.

Reduce the heat, cover and simmer gently for 2 hrs 30 mins-3 hrs 30 mins or until a fork pushed into the meat slides in easily – it should be really soft. Start checking after 2 hours – there should be no resistance when you pull the fork out of the meat. You could also use a skewer to do the testing – make sure to push it into the thickest part of the meat.

Once the beef is tender, turn off the heat. Either leave it sitting in the cooking liquor if you’re not ready to eat (it can sit like this for up to an hour), or use two forks to lift the meat out, allow the water to drain off, then put it on a board. Keep the liquor if you plan to reheat or freeze the salt beef. Cover loosely with foil and allow to rest for 10-15 mins. To serve, slice thickly against the grain of the meat or it will crumble. Serve hot or cold.

Leftovers will keep in the fridge for three days and in the freezer for up to six weeks. Before freezing, it’s best to slice it and wrap first in baking parchment, then foil. Make sure you also freeze the pot of cooking liquor. When you want to eat it, defrost and then put it (with slices arranged back into a whole brisket shape) in an ovenproof dish with the thawed liquor. Cover with foil and reheat at 180C/160C fan/gas 4 for 20 mins.

Crumbly chicken & mixed vegetable pie

Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Peel and chop the onion as finely as possible. Melt the butter in the pan over a medium heat. Add the chopped onion and leave to cook for 5 mins, stirring occasionally. Finely slice the mushrooms and add them to the pan with the onions. When the onions and mushrooms are almost cooked, add the flour to the pan and stir to make a thick paste called a roux. Crumble the stock cube in and stir well. Continuously stir the roux over a low heat for 2 mins to cook out the flour. This stops the sauce from having a starchy taste. Slowly add the warm milk to the pan, stirring all the time. Once all the milk has been added, stir in the stock, season with salt, pepper, nutmeg and mustard powder. Add the bay leaf and bring to the boil, stirring all the time to stop the sauce becoming lumpy. When the sauce has thickened, place on a very low heat. Chop the cooked chicken into even-sized pieces and add to the sauce. Add your veg and pour into the pie dish. Put the pastry on a clean, floured surface. Make sure you also dust the rolling pin with flour. Roll out the pastry, trying not to make any tears. Measure the pastry against the pie dish and once the pastry is slightly larger than the top, lift it carefully over the dish. It might be helpful to use the rolling pin to help you move the pastry. Trim off the pastry hanging over the edge of the dish. Press the outside edge of the pastry with a fork or your fingers to make a nice pattern. Brush the top of the pie with beaten egg or milk. Make a small hole in the centre of the pastry top to allow the steam to escape. You can use any leftover pastry to decorate the top of the pie with pastry shapes if you like. Place the pie in the oven for 25 mins. It is ready when golden brown.

Pork, gorgonzola & garlic butter pizza

To make the dough, put the flour, yeast and 1 tsp salt into the bowl of an electric mixer with a dough hook. On a medium speed, gradually pour in the oil and 200ml warm water to make a dough. Alternatively, mix by hand and knead on a floured surface. Cover the bowl with cling film and prove for 1 hr or until doubled in size.

Meanwhile, fry the mince until browned, then drain on a kitchen towel. Make the garlic butter by beating the butter with the garlic, sage, tomato purée and some black pepper.

Heat the oven to 240C/220C fan/gas 8. Divide the dough into four balls. Roll the balls on a floured surface into thin rounds, about 20cm wide. Lift onto floured baking trays, then spread with the garlic butter, leaving a 1cm border. Sprinkle with the mince, cheese, onion and chilli. Bake for 10-12 mins or until the dough is crisp. Scatter over the rocket, olives and lemon zest, and drizzle over some olive oil to serve.

Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Tip the potatoes into a large roasting tin and toss with 1 tbsp of the oil and some seasoning. Bake for 45 mins-1 hr until crisp and golden, tossing them again halfway through.

Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a pan. Add the onion and cook for 10-15 mins until starting to soften, then add the paprika, thyme, chopped tomatoes and beans (including the liquid from the can) and stir well. Simmer for 15 mins, or until thickened, then discard the thyme sprig.

Fry or poach the eggs. Serve alongside the wedges and beans and garnish with the parsley.
