Last week, we dipped our toe into the pool with chickpeas, a very common ingredient in vegan cooking. This week, we are shoving you in the deep end with an ingredient combination! That means you use them both together, not that you get to choose. I think this is definitely a hard one, but I know you guys can pull out some amazing stuff because you are vegan champions.
A quick review of our few simple rules/guidelines:
1. Whatever you come up with has to be new, nothing from a cookbook or a blog, not something you posted last week that happens to involve the secret ingredient. It’s fine to use a recipe for a jump-off point, but make it your own!
2. Entries are due at 3 pm on Sunday (but it takes me awhile to read all of the entries so if you’re a little late it’s no big).
3. Have fun and be creative!
And the secret ingredients are…
BANANAS AND COFFEE!
Isa came up with this combination idea. As usual, you can use any form of the ingredients that you want: banana extract, banana chips; coffee extract, espresso powder, whatever. This may seem like a dessert challenge, but I would love to see some savory applications! Bonus points if the coffee is just an accent flavor for those of us who don’t like it that much.
