Vegan Lemon Bars



Oh my goodness.

I have read so many yummy looking posts about V*con's Lemon Bars, but never really gave them a second thought. Mostly because I am more of the peanut butter cookie or oatmeal granola bar kind of treatie loving girl. I never really fancied things like lemon meringue or baked alaskas - they always were a little too sweet and pretty for me.

Yesterday was a dish-rag of a day - I was cranky pretty much the WHOLE day. Just one of those, I don't know what I want, but I know I don't want anything you are suggesting kind of days. Blah. But, around 4 in the afternoon, I was inspired by this crank of a day to do something new in the kitchen, and.....tahdah! I made the most yummiest desert I have had in AGES.

Seriously, these little lemon bars are to die for. Even Kevin who is the biggest cake fan on the planet, loves them. The colour is intense and it gave me a chance to fall back in love with agar.

Now everyone out there - grab your copy of V*con and get baking!


Oh, I also had such a busy week at work that I didn't get a chance to post my Barley and Bean Soup. The recipe is one that I would make again, though, the park down my street is currently calling my name and demanding that I go for a constitutional (who doesn't love that word?). The soup was super great, had it for dinner, for lunch and then for dinner again! Num Num.


Happy Week Everyone!!!!

Ooh, lemon bars! I haven't had them in ages, since before I was vegan. I'm like you: I am normally a choco-chunk chip peanut butter cookie kinda gal. But those lemon bars look pretty darn good!

I love lemon bars! The VCon recipe is a really good one-I fed them to my omni family and they ate them up. The soup looks really good as well!

Those are some of my favourite lemon bars! I LOVE them!
Have a great week - I hope you've got sunshine!

i haven't tried those lemon bars...mostly because i never have agar and the other recipe for lemon bars that i use is much easier and doesn't call for all that jazz. i will try them if i ever have agar and arrowroot at the same time though!

Mihl said...

I haven't made these either, but the way you describe them they sound super-yummy!

Hello! I'm going to a Sunday brunch and can't find a good vegan lemon bar recipe to bring, and don't own the Veganomicon cookbook. Is it possible to share the recipe? I can't find a good one online, either... The bars look delicious!
