(US/pa) V For Veg: Veggies: The secret to moist, vegan-friendly desserts
- [Philly.com - opinion]
I SAW AN ad the other day pushing bacon as an ideal Valentine's Day
gift, and I had to laugh. It's like saying, "Here, sweetheart, I want
you to die sooner!"
OK, I know this holiday is not about eating "right." It's about
something bigger, and that something is love. Love and chocolate.
Dark chocolate is the treat that loves you back. Healthwise, you can
have your chocolate cake and eat it, too, especially if you mix it
with - don't laugh - fruits and veggies.
It's not a new idea. In 2007, Jerry Seinfeld's wife, Jessica, smuggled
"sneaky beets" into chocolate cake with her Deceptively Delicious
cookbook and recipes. Decades earlier, at least one woman, who shall
remain unnamed, repeatedly and tirelessly cooked up zucchini- and
spinach-laced chocolate cakes for her hapless kids, a trauma from
which they're likely still reeling. (Hi, Mom!)
But there is a trend: The queen of fine vegan chocolate, Allison
Rivers Samson, has noted "a recent revolution in salty and spicy
chocolate flavors." She's added chipotle cinnamon fudge to her
Allison's Gourmet line. In this fudge, "warming cinnamon adds extra
depth while a touch of chipotle chili spices it up without setting
your mouth ablaze."
