#FoodhallTestKitchen: Thinking of switching to a #plantbased diet? Turns out, one of the best places to start is your morning cup of #coffee or #tea. So @padmakkb tried three homemade non-dairy #mylks that don’t break the bank (or the #blender): 1. #OatMilk: soak 2 Tbsp instant oats in 1 cup of room temperature water for 1 hour. Blend until smooth, and strain through a fine sieve • The pros: creamy consistency, pleasant ‘oaty’ flavour, economical • The cons: can sometimes develop a slimy texture • How we like to use it: heated and frothed for a #vegan #cappuccino or #latte 2. #AlmondMilk: soak 10 almonds in 1 cup of room temperature water for at least 3 hours. Blend and strain through a muslin cloth • The pros: neutral flavour and colour • The cons: Watery consistency, tends to ‘split’ when heated up, expensive • How we like to use it: stirred into a strong cup of black #tea, or in baking recipes that call for a splash of milk 3. #CoconutMilk: blend 3 Tbsp grated coconut with 1 cup of room temperature water, and strain through a fine sieve. • The pros: Similar in texture to milk, mild flavour, heat-stable • The cons: a bit laborious to grate the coconut • How we like to use it: the most versatile of the lot, this works well as a milk substitute in sweets like custard, pastry cream, ice creams; or savoury preparations like curries and stews Have you tried making any alternative milks at home? Let us know your favourites in the comments below!

In this week’s #FoodhallTestKitchen, we realised that the perfect #HotChocolate does exist! Just to be sure, we tried 3 different recipes so you don’t have to. • Method: Simply combine all the ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, whisking constantly to avoid lumps 1. Original Hot Chocolate – 1 cup milk, 2 tbsp drinking chocolate powder, 1 tsp sugar, 1-2 drops vanilla extract, 1⁄2 tsp cornstarch, optional The result – The easiest, #classic hot cocoa never disappoints! 2. French Hot Chocolate – 1⁄2 cup milk, 1⁄4 cup heavy cream, 1 tsp sugar, 1⁄2 cup chopped 70% dark chocolate, 1⁄2 tsp espresso #coffee powder - optional, but great for intensifying chocolate flavour The result - Luxuriously thick, velvety and flavourful. It’s like drinking hot molten chocolate or Le Chocolat Chaud in #French 3. Vegan & Keto Hot Chocolate – 1 cup coconut milk, 1 1⁄2 cup cocoa powder, few drops of Stevia, 1⁄2 tsp cinnamon powder, optional The result – Healthy hot chocolate is no longer an oxymoron! A delicious alternative to the popular recipe without compromising on the taste

#FoodhallTestKitchen - Microwave Mug Cakes: Wondering how to achieve the best crumb in a matter of minutes? Microwave #MugCakes are an Instagram sensation, but they can be pretty disappointing in real life. So we tested 3 recipes to make sure you to get that quick dessert fix, with the best taste. • Method: Simply combine the ingredients with a spoon or fork in a microwave proof mug • Time: 2 minutes each 1. Eggless - ¼ cup all purpose flour, 2 tbsp cocoa powder, ¼ tsp baking powder, 2 tbsp sugar, ⅛ tsp salt, ¼ cup milk, 2 tbsp oil, few drops of vanilla essence The result - Gummy texture and the cake became drier as it got cold. 2. With egg - 4 tbsp all purpose flour, 4 tbsp sugar, 1 medium egg, 3 tbsp milk, 3 tbsp oil, few drops of vanilla essence The result - A clear #winner, among the three if we had to choose! This closely resembled a regular oven-baked cake. 3. #Vegan & gluten free - 3 tbsp oat flour (or any millet flour), 1 tbsp cocoa powder, pinch of salt, ½ tsp baking powder, 2 tbsp raw sugar (or any sweetner of your choice), 1 tbsp coconut oil, 3 tbsp almond milk (or any dairy free milk), ½ tsp vinegar (for the rise), few drops of vanilla essence The result - The batter puffed up like a marshmallow and then, as soon as the microwave turned off, it deflated like a flat tyre. We wouldn't recommend this one! If you're ready to take kitchen experiments a bit more seriously, join us for the virtual cooking classes by FCS At Home.
