Sort of v-con
In 99 % of all cases, I don't follow a recipe closely. Usually, I just have a look at the ingredients list, put the recipe/book away and make my own thing. Or I follow a technique and substitute ingredients. I don't like anybody to tell me what to do, not even cookbooks. Usually, I succeed. Yesterday I made the quinoa-almond muffins - without the syrup and flaxseeds and used raisins as dried fruit- and they turned out amazing. I want them for breakfast every morning! Another thing I had wanted to try ever since I got the book was the spicy tempeh and broccoli rabe pasta. I passed at the rabe- never seen that in a shop anywhere- and forgot to buy tempeh, so I used regular broccoli and TVP chunks (which turned out almost scarily chicken-like!).
