Aquafabulous! 100+ Egg-Free Vegan Recipes Using Aquafaba (Bean Water)

Aquafabulous! 100+ Egg-Free Vegan Recipes Using Aquafaba (Bean Water)

Author: Rebecca Coleman Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 29/05/2017

Aquafaba literally means bean water - the water that is drained off neutral-coloured beans like chickpeas, white beans and cannellini beans. The discovery of aquafaba has blown open the world of vegan baking. Things that were previously not possible, now are. Eggs are the hardest challenge when it comes to baking because the chemical properties of eggs made them integral for binding and leavening but now there is a perfect substitution and that is aquafaba. This collection of recipes is not only for vegans but also for anyone who has an allergy to dairy and eggs. It is proof that you can go egg-free and still enjoy delicious recipes. You will never miss eggs again. The general rule of thumb is 345 ml of aquafaba equals one egg. It is the protein in aquafaba when mixed with some sugar and a pinch of cream of tartar that perfectly simulates egg whites. Neutral in taste, you do not have to worry about your dishes tasting beany. All your breakfast and brunch favourites are here from omelettes, French Toast and pancakes to scones and crepes. You will enjoy satisfying and sumptuous Vegan Shepherds Pie, Vegan Mac & Cheese and Manicotti for lunch or dinner. And you can once again enjoy Alfredo Sauce over your pasta. And the meringue desserts are not to be missed - from Fruit Pavlova and Sweet Potato Pie to Lemon Meringue Pie. Chocolate Chip Cookies, S'mores Bars, Snickerdoodles and Chocolate Ice Cream are perfect for those children's birthday parties where allergies are now a prevailing concern. Now you no longer have to live without the culinary wonders that eggs and egg whites produce. All you need to do is open up a can of chickpeas, drain the water and you are ready to go.

Deleuze and Research Methodologies

Author: Rebecca Coleman Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/02/2013

This title shows how Deleuze's philosophy is shaking up research in the humanities and social sciences. French philosopher Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) was one of the most influential thinkers of the 20th century, and his work is of continuing relevance today.

This book brings together international academics from a range of Social Science and Humanities disciplines to reflect on how Deleuze's philosophy is opening up and shaping empirical research. Contributors from fields throughout the social sciences demonstrate how engaging with Deleuze's work is reshaping their research processes. It questions the relationship between theory and methodology. It explores the conditions under which empirical research is conducted. It considers the effects/affects of research.

In Cade's place is a desperate man willing to endanger them all in the name of vengeance...unless Jill can find a way out.

The Becoming of Bodies Girls, Images, Experience

The Becoming of Bodies Girls, Images, Experience

Author: Rebecca Coleman Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/09/2012

The relationship between bodies and images has long occupied feminism. The becoming of bodies, available for the first time in paperback, explores the way in which this relationship has primarily been approached and offers an alternative framework for analysis. Thinking through her original empirical research with teenage girls, involving focus groups, individual interviews and image-making sessions, Coleman moves from a consideration of media images, the focus of much feminist research, to examine images more widely; as mirrors, photographs, glimpses, comments, imagination. Addressing issues of appearance and selfhood, sex and gender, and temporality, the book takes a Deleuzian position to argue that bodies and images are not separable entities but rather entangled processes of becoming. It asks the question: how do bodies become through images? Making links between empirical research, feminist theory and Deleuzian theory, this book will be essential reading for scholars and students of Sociology, Cultural Studies and Feminist and Gender Studies. -- .
