  • Betsy02/10/2019 - 1:16 pm

    Any thoughts on prepping this ahead of time? Up to the puréed stage and then reheating it?ReplyCancel

    • Laura03/10/2019 - 8:00 am

      Hi Betsy,
      Yes you could definitely do that! This recipe is essentially a very rich pureed soup, so it reheats really well. You will likely need to add additional vegetable stock to get it to the texture you want since the potato will thicken things up a bit.

  • Emily02/10/2019 - 2:33 pm

    O.M.G. I HAVE to try. Have you tried freezing it yet? How does it taste once defrosted. I want to know if I can make this a few days before a dinner party. I hope so! Looks amazing as always!!!ReplyCancel

    • Laura03/10/2019 - 7:59 am

      Hi Emily,
      I have not tried freezing this recipe. If you only need to make it up a few days out, this recipe would be fine held in the refrigerator in a sealed container. Just reheat it in a saucepan with a few extra splashes of vegetable broth as it will definitely thicken up as it refrigerates. I can’t imagine freezing being problematic since this is essentially a very rich version of a pureed soup recipe. But again, cannot speak to the success of this since I have not done it myself.

    Is there a substitute for the cashews? My daughter has a cashew allergy, so I can’t cook with them.ReplyCancel

    • Laura03/10/2019 - 7:57 am

      Hi Nicola,
      Is it cashews or nuts in general? If it’s just cashews, you could try pine nuts, macadamia nuts or even skinned and sliced almonds. If your daughter has a general nut allergy, I would recommend cutting the vegetable broth back by about 1/4 cup and using a 1/2 cup of unsweetened non-dairy creamer.

    This is such a unique take on vegan gravy! Hard to believe the lack of mushrooms ;)ReplyCancel

  • Sherry07/10/2019 - 12:11 am

    Oh wow, Laura: how brilliant. Clearly this is the season when we switch out our usual stovetop onion or mushroom gravy! I can’t help but ask whether the blender doesn’t make the potato gluey? You know what I mean with processing/blending potatoes … Is it ok here because there’s enough liquid + other stuff? (Also, what herbs would we use to substitute for a ready-made poultry seasoning blend? …sage, thyme …?)ReplyCancel

    • Laura09/10/2019 - 6:33 am

      Hi Sherry!
      I would say that the potato makes the gravy quite thick, but not gluey. You just have to be careful to not over-blend it. Also, once you add the blended gravy back to the pot, you’ll likely need to add more vegetable stock to thin it out and get it pourable. And poultry seasoning is predominantly sage and thyme with a bit of rosemary and a pinch of nutmeg and white pepper typically.

      • Sherry14/10/2019 - 9:06 pm

        Thanks for your helpful response, Laura! ––I thought I’d wait to answer until we had tried this, and now I can say for sure, it’s superb. We had a plethora of fresh herbs, so we roasted the veg with whole stems of rosemary and thyme and big bay leaves (discarded after), then added fresh sage and savoury (yes!) to the blender. I’m sure I never would have guessed that traditional poultry seasoning contained nutmeg, so thanks for the tip ––we added a few gratings of that, too. The consistency was terrific, not too thick at all. And happily, we have SO much leftover. I’m suddenly wondering if I need to make biscuits or something …ReplyCancel

    I only have lentils on hand, do you think it would go okay with that sub?ReplyCancel

    • Laura25/09/2019 - 1:01 pm

      In place of the quinoa? I don’t think the lentils would be “sticky” enough to be honest. They’re also quite a bit heavier, which might make the resulting cakes quite dense. Might be best to wait until you have some quinoa at the ready! ;)

  • La Torontoise25/09/2019 - 11:38 am

    All the best!ReplyCancel

    • Laura25/09/2019 - 1:04 pm

      Thank you so much for this kind comment! I really appreciate it. If you’re not into the slaw, I think a peppery arugula-based salad would be great with the natural sweetness of these cakes!

      I think that you could leave it out and they would still be fine. The psyllium is just an extra insurance policy for the cakes holding together. Just be extra careful when you’re flipping them over :)

  • Justine30/11/2019 - 6:18 am

    Hi Laura – I’ve never commented on anything before but I’ve made these three or four times now. For some reason I can never follow recipes exactly, always adding a little, leaving out a little. But my last attempt was so good… I shaped them more like croquettes (no psyllium husk) and i also added dried chilli. As the UK doesn’t have things like Old Bay I had to make it from a recipe. Anyway it was all spectacular even though I multiplied it by three and I no longer use oil. I’ve found that a beautiful firm pointy white cabbage with peas and chopped spring onions in the tahini dressing is a revelation and that is now made at least twice a week. This recipe and your cauliflower in a green tahini dressing are my two favourite recipes (plus a good creamy curry of course) of all time. I love your cookbook and no one has more beautiful or enticing photosReplyCancel

  • Em04/12/2019 - 10:54 am

    How much cooked quinoa is this? In recipes with cooked grains, etc., it would be great to know measurements after cooking – super for those who batch- or pre-cook quinoa. Thanks!ReplyCancel

    • Laura04/12/2019 - 1:47 pm

      Dry quinoa generally cooks up to 3 times the amount you started with. Since we use 1/2 cup dry quinoa here, you will need 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa.

    The picture and recipe are deceptive. There is ZERO way in the universe the patties are that crispy all around in an oven. That’s either a fake picture or deep fried. I tried it anyways, and to no surprise of mine- it’s one giant piece of mush. And no. I didnt do anything wrong. And I’m a super experienced and super successful cook. At least on recipes that dont misrepresent themselves. I would prefer you admit to the truth than pretend this outcome can be achieved without a lot of oil. Total waste of time.ReplyCancel

    • Laura13/01/2020 - 12:19 pm

      Hi there,
      I’m sorry that your experience with this recipe was so deeply upsetting. Suggesting that I need to “admit to the truth” and that my photos are fake is a bit dramatic though.

      Hi Ron,
      I have not tested this recipe with gluten-free flour, so cannot recommend substitutions. I am not overly optimistic on making a gluten-free version of this though, if I’m being honest. Might be best to seek out a recipe from a dedicated gluten-free recipe site/resource.

    YUM. Making this. One day I’ll be able to afford Flourist flour–real excited for that day.

    Unrelated: Yesterday Minimalist Baker posted an Instagram TV video on making coconut yogurt from canned coconut milk. It reminded me that one time you had a tutorial on making coconut yogurt from TJ’s frozen coconut meat. I would love to know where I can find that tutorial. I have your book, but didn’t see it in there unless I missed it. Thanks!ReplyCancel

    • Laura18/09/2019 - 2:25 pm

      Hi there! I think I was using thawed frozen young Thai coconut meat to make coconut yogurt. The TJ’s coconut meat is from mature coconuts and blends up kinda stringy.

      But the basic recipe is as follows:

      12 ounces young Thai coconut meat (about 2 cups) + 1 cup filtered/spring water + 1/2 teaspoon probiotic powder (from a probiotic capsule). Blend the coconut meat and water in a blender until completely smooth. Then, transfer that thick coconut cream to a one quart glass jar. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the probiotic powder. Then, cover the top of the jar with cheesecloth or a clean cotton towel. Secure the fabric with a rubber band. Place the yogurt in a slightly warm place for at least hours. I like to keep mine in the oven with the light switched on. Check the yogurt after 8 hours. It should be lightly tangy and slightly fluffier too. Sometimes I take mine up to 12 hours.ReplyCancel

      Hi Christine,
      This website has a method that only uses a baking sheet and a muffin tin that you fill with water when you’re ready to bake. It looks quite promising! A lot of people have luck making this in a deep cast iron skillet as well. The cooking website The Kitchn has also made a page on dutch oven alternatives for no knead bread. It can be found here. Hope this is helpful.

    Hi! Quick question– do you have experience baking with sprouted flours/know if a sprouted wheat would work 1:1 for the above recipe?ReplyCancel

    • Laura19/09/2019 - 4:53 am

      Hi there,
      I have used sprouted flours in muffins, cookies, pancakes etc before. In general, I find it to perform virtually the same with ever-so-slightly fluffier results and a lighter flavour. No knead bread is pretty forgiving if your flour remains within the wheat family. You could substitute 1 for 1.

  • Maren18/09/2019 - 9:01 pm

    This looks great and I’m eager to try it but I have a question about the flour. I followed the Flourist link and that flour appears to be neither whole wheat nor pastry flour, as specified in the recipe. Can you clarify? Thanks!ReplyCancel

    • Laura19/09/2019 - 4:51 am

      Hi there,
      To clarify: whole wheat pastry flour is generally milled from soft spring wheat. I realize that access to Flourist’s particular flour (the sifted Red Spring Wheat) will not be easy for a lot of people that follow me on here. I specify whole wheat pastry flour because most of the major flour brands (King Arthur, Bob’s etc) sell a version of this in supermarkets. And a general note: from my experience, no knead bread is quite forgiving in terms of flour as long as you stick within the wheat family. I’ve done 100% whole grain wheat loaves, loaves mixed with light spelt and all purpose, 50/50 loaves with red fife and all purpose, and I could go on!

    • Laura23/09/2019 - 8:13 am

      Hi Marie,
      Thank you so much for this comment! My marathon bread generally triples by the time the bake is over. Is your heritage flour wheat-based? Is it 100% whole grain? If it is whole grain, this could explain the lack of rise. In the recipe, I use whole wheat pastry flour, which is quite light.

  • Kim H23/09/2019 - 8:48 am

    Just finished baking this bread this morning. It’s delicious but SO DENSE. I used a fresh packet of unexpired instant yeast, followed the recipe as written, and allowed a 17 hour rest/rise.
    The dough developed air bubbles so I know the yeast was working but it did not come close to doubling in size. The dough felt very dense after the rise. Is this to be expected or did you find you had a more pillowy dough after your rise?


    • Laura23/09/2019 - 2:20 pm

      Hi Kim!
      The bread is definitely more dense than the original no knead bread with all refined flour (and zero add-ins). My dough grew in excess of doubling on each trial. What kind of flour did you use? There are SO many shifting factors with bread at work, but I’d love to try and help here. I will reiterate that It is naturally more on the dense side and ideal in a toast scenario.

      • Kim H23/09/2019 - 6:30 pm

        I used Bob’s Red Mill whole wheat pastry flour. Would you increase the yeast? Regardless, I’ve already had 2 slices today, toasted with almond butter on top. So delicious! But I’d love to make it even better next time. Thanks for your help!ReplyCancel

  • Alex24/09/2019 - 6:58 am

      Hi Faly!
      I have not tried sourdough starter in place of the yeast with this particular recipe. All of my previous sourdough experiments have been slightly underwhelming. so I don’t feel confident recommending a course of action here. Might have to take a look at a dedicated sourdough baking site for guidance!

    • Laura04/11/2019 - 9:07 am

      Hi there,
      Apologies for the delayed reply. In the event that this happens to you again, I’d try to work in handfuls of flour as you knead by hand before shaping. Once the dough has a smooth, not-too-sticky texture, you’re good to go on shaping and proceeding with baking.

    I made both this bread and the granola from your book today and they were both SO GOOD. For the marathon bread I used regular raisins and dried apricots, that was really delicious too. But the goji berries and the sweetness of the golden raisins sounds like a very tempting pair as well :-)

      2 cups or 16 ounces of crushed tomatoes will substitute for fresh.

    Just made this for dinner and it was delicious! I added some veg that needed to be used up, namely butternut, spinach and cauliflower and it all came together beautifully. Thanks, Laura, for your inspiring and tasty dishes!ReplyCancel

    Made this for dinner. It was pretty darned good!! Don’t add extra tomatoes – perfect as written. Next time I will double the batch to freeze. ThanksReplyCancel

    Made this for dinner last night! It turned out soo well.

    I was low on time so I used canned tomatoes and 1 cup of full-fat canned coconut milk in place of the cashew cream. I used 2 tsp of garam masala, 1 tsp curry powder and 1 tsp of chilli powder in place of the cardamon and the coriander because I was out of both.

    It was still amazing!!!! Fast and delicious. I will be making it again soon and maybe adding cauliflower for some extra vegetables.

    Thanks for the great recipe!ReplyCancel

    I made this for a class at the Buddhist Center today. It was a big hit! Scaling up for 40, I’m not sure I kept the proportions well, but I’ll make it again soon for just the family and use the amounts as written. People asked for the recipe, and I sent them the link, so you may have more fans, soon.ReplyCancel

    OMG, I loved butter chicken when I still ate meat, but never found a real substitute for it. This might be it! Thanks :DReplyCancel

    Just ate this for dinner — DELICIOUS and so easy! Thank you, Laura, for reliable recipes that turn out as good as your photos. I did add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes onto my portion. Next time I will likely add at the same time as the rest of the spices. Thank you!ReplyCancel

    Just made this and it was absolutely delicious! I didn’t have cashews, so I used the suggested alternative cup of coconut milk (I had coconut cream on hand, super rich & creamy). I also didn’t have fresh tomatoes on hand, so used an open jar of Rao’s sauce (was nervous about this, but it’s a nice sauce & I wanted to use it up. tastes great!). Finally, I had a Cha’s organic blend of Curry Masala, so I used that plus some paprika & the pinch of nutmeg – and honestly it’s so delicious! Thank you for solving my weeknight dilemma!ReplyCancel

    Made this for a weekend lunch and it was delicious!!! I had a moment of pause when I realized the sauce was going to be moved from the blender to the pot back to the blender, back to the pot, haha but it was super easy. In fact, everything came together so easily, I made some chapati to go along with it. Thank you for this simple, budget-friendly and delicious recipe!ReplyCancel

    Made this tonight and it was very good! We served it over wild rice, which made it much more filling. We liked ours with a bit more lemon and lots of salt to give it some extra tanginess. I used canned tomatoes and with our Vitamix, I didn’t have to soak the cashews very long. Came together super easy. Thank you!ReplyCancel

    I’ve saved the bruschetta recipe—the photos are beautiful! My husband, the gardener, keeps bringing in beautiful sweet tomatoes—large and small, yellow, red and purple, heirloom and cherry. Now I know what I’m going to do with the next bowl of tomatoes he brings in!ReplyCancel
