Barney Bakery Natural Almond Meal
I haven't been a vegan for very long, just a short three months. But I have already come to rely upon Barney Bakery meal and flours for my cooking and baking needs. And the Almond Meal has fast become one of my all time favorites.
I use this meal when I am frying tofu. I love to cut my tofu into "steaks" after draining the liquid. Then I dip them in my "egg" wash (1 tbsp. ground chia seed with 3 Tbsp. water) and roll them in this almond meal before frying in coconut oil. Who says eating vegan has to be boring?
I've also substituted almond meal instead of cornmeal when baking "cornbread", with fantastic results! (Thanks Mrs. B. for the delicious beans that went with the almond meal bread!)
And I've also dipped my tofu in this, redipped in the "egg" wash, and then rolled it in panko for a crispier version. Oh my! Either way it's delish!
This great almond meal can be used for about anything you can imagine! Sprinkle it on the bottom of your pizza pan, then make a pizza crust from the finer ground almond flour (Yes, Barney's Bakery has that too!) and you've got the start of a delish pizza! Everyone loved the slightly nutty flavor! Load the dough down with some fresh veggies, and homemade pizza sauce, and drizzle a thin hummus paste over all, and you've got a pizza made in heaven, vegan-style! Love it!
