Vegan Strawberry Cheese Blintzes with Strawberry Basil Compote and GO Veggie!® Cream Cheese

Strawberry Blintzes (20)

Whenever my mother made blintzes, she would make dozens…literalmente. She would easily make about 100 blintzes – cheese and potato – and freeze them so we could enjoy them for weeks and months to come. My favorites were the potato blintzes with mashed potatoes mixed with caramelized onions. I’ve made a vegan version of my mother’s blintzes batata and as well as her knishes batata.

My father’s favorites were the cheese blintzes made with ricotta and cream cheese. I don’t recall a lot about their flavor because I was busy inhaling the potato blintzes but I remember a warm taste in them that might have been cinnamon. De qualquer maneira, even though I’m on Team Potato Blintz, I’ve been wanting to make the sweet cheese blintzes for awhile especially for Tom who has a sweet tooth.

Quando GO Veggie!® Foods, the maker of one of my all-time favorite productsvegan parmesão ralado – sent me their amazing vegan cream cheeses, it gave me the push I needed to get in the kitchen and make the cheese blintzes.

O Chive and Garlic Cream Cheese is so delicious, I couldn’t even save it for a recipe. Tom and I just ate it on toast and loved every bite of it.

O Classic Plain Cream Cheese é rica, creamy and smooth. I used it to make the frosting for Tom’s birthday carrot cake. Foi tão bom, I’m looking for excuses to make it again.

Last but not least is the Strawberry Cream Cheese. I hid this away in the deep, dark depths of the fridge so no one would eat it while I decided what to make with it.

Então ele me bateu – make the cheese blintzes with a strawberry twist. The filling is easy – it’s vegan ricotta with a sweet side. All you have to do is mix tofu (Eu costumava Nasoy) and cream cheese and add some sugar, salt and lemon juice. The strawberry cream cheese gave it the slightest pink tinge and it was sweet but not too sweet. Yum!

The crepes are the hardest part of the recipe and by hard, I just mean tedious and repetitive. I like to chop and drop rather than make a dozen of the same thing but hey, that’s the sacrifice I have to make to put more delicious vegan food out into the world.

The crepes are gluten-free and vegan, made with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1:1 Baking Flour (which contains xanthan gum), açúcar, fermento em pó, e So Delicious Coconut Milk. This recipe made about one dozen crepes. The best part is that since they get fried later, you only have to cook one side when making the crepes. That’s a huge time-saver!

While they were cooling and the vegan cheese filling was in the fridge, I took the strawberry theme a step further and made a strawberry compote. I used fresh strawberries and added a bit of basil to it. I didn’t have fresh basil 🙁 which would have made a more distinct flavor impact but next time. The compote was thick and pretty, sweet with a slight tang from the lemon juice.

Finalmente, I assembled the blintzes. I like to do it in the traditional style, folding them up like little burritos. I see some people just folding them like a French omelet with the cheese peeking out but that’s not the blintzes I grew up with. I like to stick to traditional.

Once they were all assembled, the blintzes got pan-fried and topped with the strawberry compote and another dollop of leftover filling.

Eles foram delicioso. Lightly crisp blintzes filled with smooth, creamy vegan cheeses and the thick, sweet strawberry compote on top.

This dish makes a beautiful presentation for special brunches (think Father’s Day or bridal showers). We shared a plate with someone who hasn’t had cheese blintzes since going vegan and he said it took him right back and reminded him how much he loved cheese blintzes. Now he had them back.

8 oz. Go Veggie Strawberry Cream Cheese

¼ xícara de açúcar

¼ colher de chá. sal kosher

Zest and juice of ½ fresh lemon

For the blintzes­­­­­­­­­­­:

2 Tbs. semente de linhaça moída + 1/3 xícara de água morna

2 copos Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1:1 Baking Flour

3 Tbs. açúcar

1 TSP. fermento em pó

¼ colher de chá. sal kosher

2 ½ cups So Delicious Coconut milk

2 Tbs. manteiga ou óleo vegan

1 TSP. vinagre

1 TSP. baunilha

Spray de cozinha

Óleo vegetal, para fritar

For the compote­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­:

2 pints fresh strawberries, em cubos

2 Tbs. fresh orange juice

2 Tbs. suco de limão fresco

¼ xícara de açúcar

½ colher de chá. manjericão seco

Uma pitada de sal kosher

1 Tbs. arrowroot (opcional)

Para fazer com que o enchimento: Em uma tigela, crumble up the tofu with your fingers. Adicione o creme de queijo, açúcar, salt and lemon zest and juice. Mix well and taste for seasoning adjustments. Cover the bowl and keep in the fridge until ready to use.

Para fazer os crepes: Em uma caneca, mix the flaxseed and water. Deixe descansar por 10 minutos até engrossar. Em uma tigela grande, misture a farinha, açúcar, fermento em pó e sal. Em uma tigela menor, combinar o leite, manteiga, vinegar and vanilla. It will curdle a bit from the vinegar. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk until smooth. Add in the flax gel and whisk again until smooth. The batter should be somewhat thin, like pancake batter but a bit thinner. Set aside for at least half an hour.

Quando você está pronto para fazer os crepes, preparar peças suficientes de papel manteiga para lugar entre os crepes. Heat a non-stick 8” skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray and pour about ¼ cup of the batter in the center of the skillet and swirl it around until it covers the pan. Tampe a panela e deixe cozinhar para o crepe 3 minutos ou até que as bordas marrom e você pode levantá-la da panela com uma espátula. Você só está indo para cozinhar um lado do crepe; do outro lado vai ficar cozido quando você fritar os blintzes. Transferir o crepe para uma placa revestida com um pedaço de papel de pergaminho. Cubra o crepe com outro pedaço de papel vegetal. Repita até que você tenha usado todo o batter. Defina os crepes de lado até que esteja pronto para preenchê-las.

To make the compote: Combine the strawberries, juice, açúcar, herbs and salt in a saucepan. Leve para ferver, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 atas. The compote will thicken, especially after it cools. If you want it thicker, add the arrowroot powder and stir until dissolved.

Para fazer as blintzes: Tome um crepe e coloque-o sobre uma superfície de trabalho, cozinhado lado voltado para você. Add about ¼ cup of the cheese filling to the lower third of the crepe. Fold up the bottom edge of the crepe over the cheese. Em seguida, dobre os lados do crepe em. Enrole o crepe como se fosse um burrito até que ele se parece com um envelope. Coloque o blintz em uma assadeira ou placa, lado da emenda para baixo. Repita até que você fez todas as blintzes.

Aqueça o azeite em uma frigideira antiaderente em fogo médio-alto. Frite o blintzes, sobre 2 ou 3 de cada vez, dependendo do tamanho da sua panela, até que estejam levemente dourado e crocante por fora. Lançá-los com cuidado e frite o outro lado. Transfira para um prato forrado de papel toalha. Continue until all the blintzes are fried. Serve warm or room temperature with strawberry compote.
