I’ve been slacking in the recipe department as of late, so this weekend I made TWO new recipes to share this week. The only problem is that each recipe FLOPPED in their own way. Don’t ya hate when that happens?
Recipe #1: Avocado Chocolate Pudding
This recipe flopped, not because of the taste, but because of the nutritional profile. It was actually a sinfully delicious pudding! I am typically NOT a pudding lover because anything I have ever had (store-bought) is made with crap ingredients. I felt compelled to make this recipe though because the ingredients were simple; avocado, unsweetened cocoa, agave, pure maple syrup, and water. The dilemma; extremely high in calories for just 2 tablespoons. I don’t know why I didn’t think to do the nutrition facts BEFORE making a whole batch but I figure some tweaking needs to be done before I can go sharing this pudding recipe!! Who eats 2 tablespoons of pudding?
Recipe #2: Vegan “Cream” of Mushroom Soup
Let me just preface by saying I’m not a fan of soup, so when I saw the recipe and pictures for this soup on Joy the Baker’s website, I should have gone with my instinct and not attempted to make it. But it looks and sounds so good no?
Either way, I got all the ingredients with well intentions. However, even though the flavors were spot on, I could not get past the texture OR color of this dish. I stupidly omitted the step about using a mesh strainer, so there was an unappealing chunk. The weird chunky texture, blended with the brown color, did nothing for my senses. I could literally finish only a few bites. Brandon manned up and ate the whole bowl but literally vomited 30 minutes later. Granted, I don’t THINK it was because of the soup, but you just never know.
SO this Monday morning I have NO recipe and no new blog topic; just a couple recipe flops. Perhaps tomorrow I will come up with something better to write about! Until then! Happy Monday!
Question: Are there any foods you just don’t like? DO share!Print
