Coconut Almond Milk
2/3 cup almonds
1/3 cup coconut

BBQ Tempeh Burgers
1/4 cup lentils
2 tbs brown rice
1 cup water
6 oz tempeh
2 cloves garlic
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded & finely chopped
1 onion, grated
1 tbs vegan Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp browning sauce
1/2 tsp liquid smoke
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 cup vital wheat gluten
Bring water to a boil. Add the lentils and rice. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until the lentils and rice are soft and the liquid is absorbed. Drain, if necessary. Cool to room temperature. Boil the tempeh for ten minutes, then remove and cool. When cool, grate the tempeh. When the tempeh, rice and lentils are cooled, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Mix all of the ingredients together and kneed for a couple minutes. Form into 8 patties. Coat a cookie sheet with vegetable oil. Bake the patties for 25 minutes, flipping after 15 minutes.
I make these to be reheated, so if you eat them right away, they will be a bit soft. You can reheat them, either frozen or refrigerated in the oven, microwave or grill.

The Dietary Program in the White Home (Some statements)
Why health reformers complain of poor diet is they don't know how to cook, and should learn. We think a moderate amount of milk from a healthy cow not objectionable. We seldom prepare our food with butter. When we cannot obtain milk, we use a very trifle in some articles of vegetables. We make a milk gravy thickened with flour for our potatoes, not a particle of butter in the gravy. We have no meat on our table. I live extremely plain myself. My wants are easily satisfied.
We have but one cow. She gives but a very little milk. We have made this little do the cooking and table use for a company of from twelve to twenty which have sat at our table all winter and spring. Nearly all the time we average sixteen. We cannot obtain cream to use, but we should use more of it could we get it to use. I greatly object to an impoverished diet.
If you can get apples you are in a good condition, as far as fruit is concerned, if you have nothing else. We have beans at every meal, well cooked with a little salt and a tablespoonful of sugar, which makes them more palatable.--Letter 5, 1870.
After Ellen mentioned by name the wife of one of the ministers who was not adhering to health reform in cooking and advised others not to look to her as an example, she entered into a further discussion of eggs and Dairy products: If you have eggs, use them as your judgment shall dictate, yet I would say for children of strong animal passions they are positively injurious. The same may be said of adults. I do not think such large varieties of fruit are essential, yet they should be carefully gathered and preserved in their season for use when there are no apples to be had. I use but little fruit beside baked apples, although we have other kinds.
I would not advise you to set aside milk or a moderate use of eggs, moderate use of sugar. Meat I am decided does us no good, but only harm, except a person who is robbed of vitality may need a little meat to stimulate a few times. I again say, more depends upon thoughtfulness and skill in the preparation of the articles you have than of the variety or quality. Apples are superior to any fruit for a standby that grows.--Ibid.
