There is one reason I’m posting this entry, and that is Sangria Sorbet. An alcoholic frozen treat. I’d be a monster if I didn’t share that invention with you! So even though the rest of the meal might have fallen a bit flat and the pictures were pretty lame, I’ll make the sacrifice to share with you the wonder that is wine sorbet.
¾ – 1 cup sugar, $0.16
¾ cup water, $0.00
750 ml wine, $2.50
3 cups frozen strawberries, $0.99
Per serving: $0.46
- Heat water and sugar until the sugar dissolves. This is the simple syrup.
- Let simple syrup and wine chill in the fridge.
- Once the simple syrup has cooled, blend everything together.
- Pour it into a bowl and freeze for several hours. I stirred it a few times while it was freezing.
The Rest of Dinner
Rolls, $0.23 each
I made the rolls from this entry except I broke the dough into 8 instead of 16 rolls.
Fakon, ~$0.15 serving
I took the recipe for fake bacon from Fettle Vegan. Except I didn’t have liquid aminos so I used 2 tbsp of tamari and only 1 tbsp of liquid smoke instead. This coconut bacon is pretty good on an Elvis sandwich!
Burger, $0.38 each
This was a chipotle black bean burger, and tasted great! Except I goofed and got the can of chipotles with tomato paste instead of just straight chipotles, so the burger was much too moist and fell apart. I will definitely be experimenting with a chipotle black bean burger again to find a recipe more suitable for sharing on the web!
Avocado topping, ~$0.15 per burger
Because what’s a black bean burger without avocado on top?
Total plate: $0.91
