Three Tomato Risotto

Natural Bouillon Cube Recipe

Natural Bouillon Cube RecipeVegan Mother Hubbard has published this great Three Tomato Risotto recipe- may we recommend our Edward & Sons Veggie Bouillon Cubes?

Three Tomato Risotto

Broth

  • 6 cups vegetable stock (may we recommend our Edward & Sons Veggie Bouillon Cubes?)
  • 1 cup white wine (sauvignon blanc or something similar)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme

 Rice

  • 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup finely diced onion
  • 1 tsp kosher salt, divided
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 cups arborio rice
  • 1 cup white wine (same as used in the broth)
  • 1/2 tsp minced, fresh rosemary

Finishers

  •  5-6 ounces shredded or diced vegan cheese*
  • 1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped, oil-packed, sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped roasted tomatoes**
  • 1/4 cup minced, fresh parsley

Instructions

  1. In a 2 quart sauce pot, whisk the broth ingredients together. Bring the mixture to a simmer, over low-medium heat. Reduce heat to low to maintain the temperature, without reducing the broth too much.
  2. In a large pot (about 4 quarts), warm 1 tablespoon of oil over low heat. Add the onions and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Saute, until they are soft and translucent.
  3. Add the garlic, and continue the saute, until the onions are browned and the garlic is soft.
  4. Add the remaining oil, remaining salt, and the rice to the pot. Stir everything together, and saute for about 2 minutes, to toast the rice.
  5. Stir the wine and rosemary into the rice, scraping the bottom of the pot to release any browned bits that may have stuck. Cook until the wine is absorbed into the rice.
  6. Begin adding the simmering broth about 1 cup at a time. Stir the rice and broth, until the liquid is absorbed, then add the next portion of broth.
  7. When all the liquid has been cooked into the rice, and the rice is tender, gently stir in the cheese, tomatoes, and parsley. When the cheese is melted, serve.

Notes

*I used 8 slices Daiya provolone, which I diced. Other options would include vegan swiss or mozzarella slices or shreds. Skip the cheddar or anything spicy in this dish.

**If you can’t find roasted tomatoes in your grocery store, roasted red peppers would be great, too.

Natural Bouillon Cube Recipe
Wild Mushroom Risotto

Natural Bouillon Cube Recipe

Natural Bouillon Cube RecipeVegan Mother Hubbard has published this great Wild Mushroom Risotto recipe- may we recommend our Edward & Sons Veggie Bouillon Cubes?

Wild Mushroom Risotto

Rice

  • 2 ounces dried, wild mushrooms (I used a mix of cloud ear, oyster, woodear, and shiitake)
  • 3 cups boiling water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or non-dairy butter, divided
  • 1 pound cremini or white mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups brown rice
  • 1/2 cup white rice
  • 1 tbsp white mustard seeds
  • 2 cups chopped kale (remove and discard stems, before chopping)
  • 2 tbsp minced, fresh dill

Broth

  • liquid from reconstituting mushrooms
  • 5 cups vegetable stock or broth (may we recommend our Edward & Sons Veggie Bouillon Cubes?)
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp grated or finely minced garlic
  • 1 tsp sriracha
  • 1/2 tsp dry thyme
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Rinse the dried mushrooms, then place them in a medium sized, heat-safe mixing bowl. Pour the boiling water over the mushrooms, and set aside to steep for about 10 minutes.
  2. Remove the mushrooms from the soaking water. Reserve the liquid. Roughly chop the mushrooms.
  3. To make the broth, start by measuring the reserved liquid from soaking the mushrooms. Add additional water, so you have a total of 4 cups.
  4. Stir the mushroom liquid/water, the broth, and remaining stock ingredients together in a pot. Simmer over low heat.
  5. Place a separate, 6 quart pot over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil or butter, and the sliced mushrooms.
  6. Saute until the mushrooms, release their liquid and begin to brown. Transfer the mushrooms to a separate dish.
  7. Add the remaining oil or butter, brown rice, white rice, and mustard seeds to the pot. Toss the ingredients together and saute for about a minute, or until the rice is hot.
  8. Begin adding the hot broth to the rice, one cup at a time. Stir often. When the broth is absorbed into the rice, add the next cup. Repeat this process, until you have about 1 cup of broth left.
  9. When adding the final portion of broth, stir in the kale, dill, and all the mushrooms. Continue to cook, until the last of the broth is cooked into the rice, and you have creamy, tender rice.

Natural Bouillon Cube Recipe
Curried Sweet Potato, Carrot & Squash Soup with Pine Nut Cream

pine

Natural Bouillon Cube RecipeFettle Vegan has published this great Curried Sweet Potato, Carrot & Squash Soup with Pine Nut Cream recipe- may we recommend our Edward & Sons Veggie Bouillon Cubes?

Curried Sweet Potato, Carrot & Squash Soup with Pine Nut Cream

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 tablespoons butter or oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 medium-sized yellow onions, diced
  • 2 cups sliced carrots
  • 2 cup acorn squash, deseeded and cubed
  • 4 cups sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 6 cups vegetable broth (try Edward & Sons Veggie Bouillon Cubes)
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup pine nuts (pignolias)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, for garnish

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a large pot, heat oil or butter on medium heat. Add garlic and onions and cook about 5 minutes, until onions are slightly glassy and softened. Do NOT let the garlic turn brown and burn- it will taste bitter.
  2. Add in the carrots, squash, and sweet potatoes, and stir to combine. Follow with the vegetable broth, curry, cumin, salt, and pepper. Let simmer on medium heat for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables have become soft enough to poke through with a wooden spoon.
  3. While soup cooks, combine the pine nuts and water in a high-speed blender until creamy. Set aside.
  4. When soup is ready, let cool a bit, then blend using an immersion blender, or in batches using a high-speed blender. Blend until completely puréed. At this point, you can mix the pine nut cream into the soup OR serve it in bowls, adding the pine nut cream to each bowl individually (our preference and how we did it in the photos). Sprinkle each serving liberally with cilantro, and enjoy! Makes 10-12 servings. Freezes well, and keeps in the fridge, covered, for about a week. Feel free to half the recipe for a 4-6 serving portion.

  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 2 medium yellow onions
  • 4 T. earth balance or olive oil
  • 1 quart (4 c.) vegetable broth (or water) (try Edward & Sons Veggie Bouillon Cubes)

  • 1 tsp. salt

Tomato Soup:

  • Wash, weigh, and chop tomatoes. Set aside.

Remove the bay leaves and toss ‘em in the compost. Pour the cashew cream into the pot, and using a regular or immersion blender, blend the soup until creamy, usually about 20 seconds in my vitamix.
  • Serve immediately while warm, or simmer on low heat until ready to serve. Garnish with roasted cherry tomatoes, a drizzle of cashew cream, or fresh basil leaves.

Natural Bouillon Cube Recipe
Chilled Cucumber-Cilantro Soup

Natural Bouillon Cube Recipe

Natural Bouillon Cube RecipeVegan Miam has published this great Chilled Cucumber-Cilantro Soup recipe using our Edward & Sons Natural Bouillon Cubes:

“Sweltering hot days in Oregon, what you need desperately is a chilled and refreshing soup. We made Mark Bittman’s Asian-Style Cucumber Soup (view here) with some substitutions and it wasn’t vegan. We used tamari and Edward & Sons Not-Chick’n Bouillon to make a gluten-free version. This vegan and gluten-free Chilled Cucumber-Cilantro Soup is filled with loads of beautiful healthy greens you can find at farmers’ market: cucumbers, chili, scallions, arugula, cilantro and mint.”

Chilled Cucumber-Cilantro Soup
Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 medium cucumbers, peeled and halved lengthwise, seeded and sliced thinly using a mandolin
  • ¼ cup tamari
  • 2 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 small Thai chili, stemmed, seeded and minced, or ¼ teaspoon cayenne, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 3 cups vegan ‘chik’n stock, chilled (Edward & Sons Not-Chick’n Bouillon Cubes)
  • ¼ cup minced scallions, both white and green parts
  • 1 cup chopped arugula
  • 1 cup roughly chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped mint

Method

In a large bowl, combine cucumbers, tamari, rice vinegar, chili, and agave. Refrigerate uncovered for 20 to 30 minutes. Pour stock to the mixture and add the rest of the greens: arugula, cilantro and mint. Taste and adjust seasoning (add more tamari or rice vinegar).

Notes

Adapted from Mark Bittman’s Asian-Style Cucumber Soup recipe in the New York Times.

Natural Bouillon Cube Recipe
Mediterranean Harissa Stew with Purple Sweet Potato

Natural Bouillon Cube Recipe

Natural Bouillon Cube RecipeVegan Miam has published this great Mediterranean Harissa Stew with Purple Sweet Potato recipe using our Edward & Sons Natural Bouillon Cubes:

Mediterranean Harissa Stew with Purple Sweet Potato
Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, at room temperature
  • 1 medium sweet onion, peeled and minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons yellow curry powder
  • 1 3-inch cinnamon stick
  • 1½ tablespoons harissa*
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 pound (or 450g) large purple sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • ¼ teaspoon salt or more to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes, fire roasted
  • 4 cups vegan not-chick’n broth (Edward & Sons)
  • 3 to 4 bay leaves
  • ¼ teaspoon saffron threads
  • 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 yellow red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 cups cooked Israeli cous cous, farro, orzo or freekeh

Garnish

  • Handful of Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • Finely grated lemon zest
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Preparation

  • Heat a wide, heavy skillet or Dutch oven (5½ quart) over medium heat. Melt the coconut oil in the pot. Add onions and sauté until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in ground cumin, ground coriander, curry powder, cinnamon stick, harissa and tomato paste and sauté for 2 minutes longer.
  • Add the carrots, purple sweet potatoes, salt, black pepper, crushed tomatoes. Cook, stirring, for about a minute, until fragrant, and add the broth and bay leaves. Bring to a simmer, and simmer until the sweet potatoes and carrots have cooked down slightly, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low, simmer uncovered, for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the Israeli cous cous or grains, grate lemon rind; chop parsley.
  • Add the saffron threads and chickpeas to the pot. Reduce to a simmer and cover with a lid. Simmer 10 minutes. Add the yellow bell pepper and cook another 2 minutes.
  • Remove bay leaves and cinnamon stick before serving and add cous cous or your favorite grain. Ladle into bowls and top with chopped parsley (if desired), grated lemon zest and a drizzle of olive oil.

Notes

  • The stew is moderately spicy. For very spicy, use 2 to 2½ tablespoons harissa. For mildly spicy, use 1 tablespoon harissa.
  • Purple Sweet Potato alternative: Any potatoes, squash, pumpkin, turnips, or cauliflower
  • Don’t like chickpeas? Use canned Cannellini, Great Northern and Navy beans if you like, but add them at the same time as the sweet potatoes & carrots and the beans will absorb the flavors of spices while cooking.

Natural Bouillon Cube Recipe
Orange Tofu

Natural Bouillon Cube Recipe

Natural Bouillon Cube RecipeVegan Mother Hubbard has published this great Orange Tofu recipe- may we recommend our Edward & Sons Veggie Bouillon Cubes?

“I know, I know. I posted a grilled, marinated tofu recipe last week and I’m doing it again this week. It’s worth it, though. This is really delish and marinating, then grilling tofu is easy and quick. If your fire is hot, it can be cooked up in just 4-6 minutes. How great is that?”

 Grilled Orange Tofu

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup veggie broth (may we recommend our Edward & Sons Veggie Bouillon Cubes)
  • 1/4 cup Braggs or tamari
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 tbsp minced basil
  • 1 tsp chili sauce or chili paste (check ingredients carefully for fish and shellfish)
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1-2 lb firm or extra-firm tofu, drained and pressed

Slice the tofu into 1/4-3/8 inch pieces. Whisk all other ingredients together in a medium sized bowl. Place the tofu slices in a large, shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the tofu, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and for up to 2 days.

Grill over a hot fire for several minutes on each side. A grilling basket makes this really easy, because you can flip the tofu, without it breaking apart or falling through the grill grates.

Natural Bouillon Cube Recipe
Marinara and Tofu Pasta Bake

Natural Bouillon Cube Recipe

Natural Bouillon Cube RecipeOur friends at Vegan Mother Hubbard have published this great Marinara and Tofu Pasta Bake recipe- may we recommend our Edward & Sons Veggie Bouillon Cubes?

“I like to spend all day in the kitchen, so I tend to make meals that are long-term commitments. Those two and three hour prep meals haven’t been an option recently. I’m still in the kitchen all day, but it’s to test cookie recipes and take photographs. That means I have been aiming for the quickest meals I can create. The recipe I have for you today takes a long time to bake, but no more than about 15 minutes to put together. You can decrease the baking time, by assembling the dish in the morning, and baking it in the afternoon or evening.”

Marinara and Tofu Pasta Bake

Pasta:

  • 3 cups of your favorite marinara sauce
  • 2 cups small, uncooked whole wheat pasta (bow ties, macaroni, shells, etc)
  • 2 cups corn niblets (or any other veg you want)
  • 2 cups diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup veggie broth (try Edward & Sons Veggie Bouillon Cubes)
  • 12-16 ounce package firm or extra firm tofu, cut into small diced
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder or 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil or 1 tsp minced fresh basil

Topping:

  • 1 1/2 cups panko (try Edward & Sons Organic Panko)
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp oil (olive, canola, etc)

Mix all the pasta ingredients in a large bowl. Spread into a large, greased casserole dish. In a smaller bowl, stir together all the all topping ingredients. Sprinkle the topping over the casserole. Cover with foil and bake for 2 hours in a 350 degree oven. Remove the foil and bake an additional 30 minutes. If you want a really crispy topping, add it later during the baking time.

If you’ve made the dish in advance, and refrigerated it overnight or for the day, you can reduce the covered baking time by 20-30 minutes.
