A smallish basket of strawberries
Rice wine vinegar
Vegan sugar of sorts
Just a little bit of soy sauce
Black Sesame seeds
Peel the skin off of the cucumbers. Cut the cucumbers into super thin slices. Cut the strawberries in thin slices too. If they're huge strawberries then quarter them then slice. Mix together in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk together equal parts of sugar and rice wine vinegar and a few drops of soy sauce. If the sugar doesn't dissolve fully, then add a tiny bit more vinegar but don't overdo it. If you're a honey-inclusive vegan, whisk a teaspoon of honey into this concoction.
Pour the sauce over the cucumbers and strawberries, mix, garnish with the black sesame seeds and voila! delicious cucumber salad.

This is a pretty simple recipe - basically a funnel cake with 'naners and some delicious spices.
1 egg (I used egg replacer)
1 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
Pinch of salt
3 bananas pureed (or 6 apple bananas, which is what I used)
1/2 c. water
1/4 tsp. each of vanilla, cinnamon & nutmeg
Oil for frying!
Mix dry ingredients! Add wet ingredients! Fry! Coat in sugar! Devour!
I mashed my bananas by hand and found that they weren't mashed enough - so after mixing it all together I threw it in the blender to get a smoother consistency. The recipe says that it should be a thin, pancake batter consistency but mine came out fairly chunky (still pourable) and still worked like a charm.
I was going to post a real picture but I couldn't resist this one...
