Vegan Apple Crisp
5 cups apples, thinly sliced, peeled if desired
3/4 cup brown sugar (we use a vegan one, not processed through bone
3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup old fashioned oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon (generous)
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3-4 tablespoons safflower oil
2 tablespoons soymilk (or 2 tablespoons other non-dairy milk)
- First of all, feel free to use any type or combination of apples.
If you are using a very firm variety- granny smith for instance- it is a
good idea to cook them for a couple of minutes, with as little water as
possible, just to warm and slightly soften them. Otherwise they will
stay rather firm instead of half-melting as they bake.
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Mix the other ingredients, with a spoon, then with fingers, until
the texture is crumbly. If too dry, add more oil or soymilk; if too wet,
add more flour.
- Transfer the apples to a medium casserole or pie dish. Sprinkle the
dry mixture over them and even it out a bit with a spoon.
- Bake for 1/2 hour, checking occasionally, till the "crisp" is
golden and crispy! Allow to cool a little before devouring with a scoop
of vegan vanilla ice cream -- enjoy!.
