As I've mentioned before, I'm slowly working my way through Celine and Joni's 500 Vegan Recipes. And by slowly, I mean I'm on chapter two — Sweet and Savory Muffins. I've been craving muffins for awhile now, so every single recipe in the section sounded delicious. I had a very hard time choosing just one for this week's breakfast. But after much deliberation, I finally settled on the Jam-Filled Soda Rolls:
Why? Because the entire recipe only contains two tablespoons of sugar! That means a healthier breakfast to start my day. Since they're not very sweet, these muffins are more like rolls (hence the name). I used raspberry preserves in mine, but any jam or fresh fruit preserves will do.
For some reason, the blob of jam sunk to the bottom of most of my rolls and leaked out, creating a hollow crater where the preserves were supposed to be. I actually added a little extra jam after halving this one for the sake of the picture. Nonetheless, these are delicious!
To balance the mild sweetness, I also made a batch of Crispy Seitan Bacon from 500 Vegan Recipes:
Wow! I typically only make tempeh bacon and very occasionally buy the Lightlife Smart Bacon, but I've never even thought to make bacon from vital wheat gluten flour and beans. That's the base of this delicious baked bacon alternative. Celine and Joni are genius. Just genius.
