    How closely does it taste to parmesan?

    I have no idea. It adds some additional taste and texture to the sauce, and nutritional yeast has a kind of nutty-pungent flavor similar to a lot of hard cheeses. The almonds, I think, are mostly for texture and color, otherwise the nooch alone would just turn into powder and dissolve in the sauce.

    I think to get remotely close to parm you'd need MSG, because parmesan is an umami rich cheese.

    Damn rokki that looks good, now I want pastries.

    I've been trying to use the wok more often although my oven doesn't really get hot enough. First is beef stir fry with pepper and scallion, second is braised chicken with shiitake and peppers (although that was in a dutch oven so uhh bad example I guess)

    Spoiler: hide




    Homemade lasagna is surprisingly delicious, but also surprisingly expensive to buy ingrediants for and requires a fair amount of time cooking. Though it makes food for like an entire week, so worth it.

    Focaccia, although some Italian might murder me for calling it that

    I'm baking a back-of-the-Hershey's package cake and after I put all the flour, bsoda, bpowder, salt, sugar, and cocoa powder, I realized I had no milk so I substituted heavy whipping cream instead-- same amount-- we'll see what jappens. Half-assed the measurements. What's interesting and drew my eye to this recipe is that it calls for 1 cup of boiling water added at the end before popping in the oven. There were also eggs and oil added. I will probably put the remainder of that white chocolate sauce on it with some chocolate frosting that's also on the back

    --

    Cake was good
    Frosting was good

    -- colored the leftover ganache blue and ruined the look of the cake so I'm not posting it but it tasted good

    Yep eggplant, I don’t make lasagna without it now, it’s a really nice addition.

    For the focaccia I think I used this recipe https://www.sunset.com/recipe/onion-focaccia but added in the olives, tomatoes, and parmesan. I think I used more oil too but that just makes it crispier, which I like anyway.

    Hmm. Next time my farm share includes eggplant I'll know what to do with it.

    I'm still trying to figure out a good use for all these beets besides onion soup.
