9-Steps to Vegan Perfection

That title make it sound like some sort of Vegan AA.  The intensive program.  Down to 9 steps from 12.  But no.  This isn't a program.  It was a dessert baking process, taken on by the students at the Natural Gourmet Institute For Health & Culinary Arts.

I was reading through some recent articles on Good and it jumped out at me: The Flax Egg and Other Vegan Baking Tricks.  The author, Michele Wolfson, her baking partner and classmates took on the following challenge:

1. Bake an original recipe, as is
2. Convert flour
3. Convert milk
4. Convert additives
5. Convert sugar
6. Convert butter
7. Convert eggs
8. Make it better
9. Make it mo’ better

They tackled chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, peanut butter cookies, black and white cookies, brownies, banana cupcakes, carrot cake cupcakes, and gingerbread cookies.  This is the delicious madness that ensued...

Wowzers, right?!!!

Definitely go check out the full story.  It's an awesomely sweet tale of trial, error, perseverance, and ultimately that of triumph.   I love the article's closing, "Greatness is not easily attained but well worth the effort. Bon appetit!"

(Seriously, go check it out now- there are more of Michele's mouth watering photos!!!)
