And found Natura Si and Gaia in Pordenone. Also,several vendita biologica in area di centro Pordenone. Fa bene! Also, I had no idea of the great, cheap, local foods available at the town markets. We also dined at the New Punjab restaurant in Fontanafredda. Grazie per la assistenza, I'm sure we'll enjoy our time in this lovely country.

Oh oh oh...one question- what is a good (not full of sugar/ trans fats) vegan form of Nutella? I have a recipe (from Isa Chandra Moskovitz's "Veganomicon"), but it doesn't
seem very good.

Welcome :-)

I have a recipe, but I've never tried it out:

-100g extra dark chocolate, chopped fine
-50g hazelnuts, roasted, chopped fine
-100g brown sugar
-1/2 cup soy milk
-1 tablespoon peanut oil

Whizz up hazelnuts, sugar and chocolate.
Pour mixture into a saucepan and cook it in a bain-marie, slowly adding soy milk and oil. Stir frequently until the mixture becomes a smooth cream.
Remove it from the heat, pour it into a glass jar and let it cool down.

Does it seem better than the other one you have?

Ciao,
Marianna

the most popular brand for vegan food is Valsoia, you can find it in almost every supermarket. tha brand is not very ethical so some people boycott it and i'm not even sure it's healthy, but it's good, vegan and easy to find. if
you buy Valsoia products make sure it says 100% vegetale, if it says only vegetale it could contain eggs or milk protein.

I'm afraid Valsoia only makes vegetarian Nutella...

I'm sorry...like Milou said, if they write "vegetale" it means that the product contains eggs and/or milk protein: their Nutella is "vegetale"....

:-D

:-D

but still doesn't contain any dairy products, so i call it "VEGAN", if you know any non vegan ingredient just say
it.

anyway, it's not my real problem i make a better
"nutella" by my own in short time spending very few
money, and it's even organic and without saturated fat

this is the recipe i use every week to make nutella for me and friends.

put a 120 grams of roasted hazelnuts in your mixer highest speed, when chopped it like flour add 50 gr of dark cocoa (don't use chocolate just cocoa powder) add 1 teaspoon of vanilla powder, and keep mixing.
now add 200gr of corn oil and 100 gr of maple syrup and still mix for a while. while mixing add few soy milk (half a cup, little more) as soon as you'll add the milk it will immediately change in consistency. just take it out of mixer and move it to containers.

i hope the quantity i gave you are right cuz i don't use
to weight anything, so i balance quantity depending on how i feel :)

have nice nutella

ps
this recipe will become immediately toxic and kill you in case you're votin' mc-cain-palin november 4th ;)

I have no clue what non-vegan ingredients they use, I
don't really want to find out, but there must be something wrong if they don't write "100 % vegetale". I remember somebody saying they used to eat Valsoia hamburgers, only to find out they contain yolk...no notice was given on the label...

Good for you :-) You could give your recipe to Ehud.

the valsoia burger contains yolk (written in ingredients) the valsoia nutella doesn't contain any dairy product.

this is the ingredient list of valsoia cream:

Zucchero, oli vegetali, nocciole, estratto di soia in polvere, cacao magro, fibra di soia, emulsionante, aromi.

anyway i'm not eating cuz it contains saturated fat and other shit, but for what is considered being vegan, this product is vegan

So why don't they write "100% vegetale"? I'll never
trust their nutella if they keep on writing vegetale.
And after all, Valsoia is not the only brand available for a vegan Nutella....vegan food shops surely have plenty of it.

I think "aromi" is the key to everything...

the best one available for what i found is a brand called "under 18" but still it contained sugar and sat fat, like every brand available in stores, so the only way to have a good one is to make your own

Any chance of you sending your homemade vegella to the whole forum? :-)
