Iron Chef #3 Roundup: Coconut

Here’s your Iron Chef Roundup! Thanks to everyone who participated, all of the recipes look truly amazing, and many people mentioned how much they love coconut. And don’t forget to check back Friday, when the last challenge of MoFo will be posted!

Are all of the chocolate giveaways this weekend making you drool? Go over to Don’t Fear The Vegan and try out these Coconut White Chocolate Pumpkin Truffles.

To change up your breakfast a bit, but without a lot of effort, try Tiffany’s Coconut Hashbrowns.

JL used the new So Delicious Coconut Nog to make Eggnog Bread! This recipe will come in handy when i’ve bought three cartons of nog on sale and can only drink the first two.

Mandy made a dessert called Coconut Slice, I had to look up what a slice is because i’ve never heard the term before. Learning is delicious!

Zuckerbaby made Monte Carlo Ice Cream, inspired by a famous Australian biscuit. Note to self, go to Australia.

For something a little lighter and to get Jimmy Buffet stuck in your head, try Easy Vegan’s “Put the Lime in the Coconut” Salad Dressing…or try her second entry, Chocolate Chip Brownies with Coconut Buttercream Frosting.

There aren’t any non-dairy replacements for alcoholic beverages on the market (and now i’m wondering why not), but you can make your own Cheatin’ Baileys at home in minutes, via Tea and Sympatico.

Vegtastic updated a classic kids treat by making Coconut Chai Rice Krispy Treats.

Poobee took some failed fritters and turned them into quesadilla filling, to dip into their Chocolate Coconut Sauce.

Lisa made Red Coconut Curry Spring Rolls with Peanut-Coconut Dipping Sauce, she says she’ll post the recipe later and we are going to hold her to that!

Individual Sweet Potato Casserole, where all you need is a microwave and a spoon? Yes and thank you, Rachael!

Ashley kicks a basic recipe up a notch with Coconut and Cranberry Johnny Cakes.

In addition to a recipe for Coconut Almond Rum Balls, you can learn about a great dog rescue at Hobby and More.

Go over to The Flaming Apron for an Almond Joyeux Latte and a reminder why cow’s milk is scary.

Cara brings us a very tropical recipe from Germany with this Banana Mango Cake with Mango Coconut Cream.

Justbloggs made their very first homemade Green Curry without even referencing a recipe, even making the paste from scratch!

Katie made some seriously amazing looking Raw Chocolate Coconut Truffles, clearly not for the faint of heart.

And the made-up award for ‘recipe I most wish came with a demonstrative video goes to Bad Little Spice for her Monkey See, Monkey Do Coco-Choco-Loco-Nana Ice Cream.

Clare made Courgette Curry in Coconut Sauce (courgette = zucchini), this looks just like a curry I had for lunch last week!

If you are lucky enough to find vegan shrimp in your area, try Kathy’s Vegan Coconut Shrimp! I love it when people put in a recipe, “I try X but it didn’t work” because it’s helpful to know if what seems like an easier way won’t even work.

Steph and Jennifer made a Coconut Spiced Kugel.

Kelly tried to make coconut brittle and it didn’t turn out (I would love to see it anyway!), but she promises to post a coconut cream pie before the day is out, so check back on that entry later.

Do you miss white chocolate, and can’t get vegan white chocolate chips in your area? Then go over to Allysia’s for White Hot Chocolate (and bring me back a mug).

If you’re bookmarking US Thanksgiving recipes, you will definitely want to see Lisa’s no-bake, easy-peasy Coconut Cranberry Tart.

  1. Great round up Katie. You are one busy girl! Lots more recipes for me to book mark.
    Sorry that you had to look up “slice” – such a common term in Australia and NZ.
    Funny how things get lost in translation between US, UK, Australia, NZ. 🙂
    I think what we call a slice you might call a bar.
    A slice as any baked good (or even no-bake slice in this case) that you make in a shallow baking tray and then cut into segments. It usually has a base (often crushed cookies or pastry), a filling and a topping (often icing or chocolate). But sometimes there will just be one or two layers.

  2. Here is a link to a popular Aussie recipe site with billions of hits for “slice recipe”.
    Ok maybe I exagerate but you get the picture 🙂

    Warning – this is not a vegan recipe site but I am have plans to veganise lots of them. Carmel slice (one of the most popular which can be found in EVERY bakery in Aust and NZ) is going to be the trickiest to veganise but I am determined to do it! If any Vegan MoFoers have veganised Carmel slice I would love the recipe. 🙂
