Yes, it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Semicircular Vegan goes FULL CIRCLE!
This morning was a pancake morning and what better way to break in the new Redi Set Go cooker full circle pan!

made The PPK banana walnut pancakes recipe and used about half a cup of batter per pancake.  This made for some huge pancakes, so we shared each pancake as they came out of the cooker.   I think using the cooker may have actually been a little slower than making pancakes on the stove as they cooked for about 8 minutes each, but I didn’t have to stand by the stove and flip and I used a lot less oil than I would have cooking on a griddle or frying pan on the stove.


Here’s one just starting to brown:


















And here it is all ready to eat with some Soyatoo that I had forgotten I had.

I came home the other day to find a box in the stairwell and I knew right away it was for me! My new GT Xpress (aka redi set go cooker) has arrived and with it, like, a million pan inserts. It came with the semicircle, the full circle, the muffin, the quarter circle AND the heart pan! I can’t even tell you how psyched I am to have this pan. I’ve been thinking about heart shaped muffins for days, but now that I find myself suddenly with a lot of free time (I was made redundant on Tuesday) I was hungry for lunch, not muffins.

I had leftover lentil sloppy joes (Snobby Joes from Veganomicon) and brown rice, so I thought, why not heart burgers?
I mixed the lentils and rice together and then added a few tablespoons of chickpea flour to bind it all together and plopped it all into the well oiled adorable little heart wells.

Next, using the BRAND NEW TIMER feature on the cooker, I baked these for 15 minutes and then flipped the removeable pan onto a plate and they came out perfectly!  I wasn’t expecting them to just fall out in little heart shapes, but they did.   It would have been pretty hard to get these out in the old GT Xpress with that spatula.

I ate two of these little guys in a pita with some ketchup.  Nice cheap lunch!

Good news, everyone! The good people who make the GT Xpress have read of my plight of being out of ideas to blog about and have graciously offered to send me their newest model of the GT Xpress called Redi-Set-Go Cooker
I’m super excited because this model comes with a FULL CIRCLE pan (crazy, i know) and a mini muffin pan and who knows what else! My friend at work already gave me a great idea for the mini muffin pan – falafel! So expect to hear more from me in the near future.

Plus, it’s red and will totally match my Kitchen Aid.
