Vegetarian Recipes from Aunt Betty Jean

Aunt Betty Jean's kitchen always smells like no other place on earth. A combination of heavenly hash and devil's food makes her kitchen THE place to go and take a load off.......but only if you have time to exercise - a lot - afterwards.

Aunt Betty also prepares vegetarian dishes and wants to share some of her best recipes here.

Her column is updated every day or thereabouts, so check back to see what Aunt Betty's stirring up.

Egg-Free Chocolate Mousse

6 Tbsp water
3 tsp agar-agar
4 tsp Ener-G Egg Replacer
6 Tbsp soymilk
1-1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup melted soy margarine
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp unsweetened, dutch cocoa
1 Tbsp Xanthan Gum
Put water in a small sauce pan and sprinkle agar flakes onto the surface.
Do not stir or heat.
Allow agar to soften for 10 minutes.
Set aside.
In a bowl whip egg replacer and soymilk together until frothy.
Slowly add sugar and mix until stiff.
Melt margarine and stir in cocoa.
Add cocoa mixture to whipped egg replacer, slowly add xanthan gum and set aside.
Bring water and agar to a boil slowly, simmer until agar is completely dissolved.
Pour agar into bowl with other ingredients.
Whip until thick.
Refrigerate until firm.


TRAIL BARS (EGG FREE)

The trail bars you find made by the large cereal companies are pretty close to candy bars.
These bars are not.
We use Ko-Jel in this recipe, which is a kosher, non-gelatin dessert.

3 cups dry oatmeal
2-1/2 cups powdered nonfat milk
1 cup sugar
1/2 package citrus-flavored Ko-Jel
3 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons honey
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oatmeal, sugar, and milk.

In a saucepan, combine the honey and water and bring to boil.
Dissolve the Ko-Jel in the water once boiling.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and add the water.

Allow the mixture to sit for a bit.
Pack the mixture into a square dish and allow to stand until solid.

Cut mixture into pieces sized as you desire.
Store in the refrigerator.
