Beer is one of the oldest and the most widely consumed alcoholic drinks in the world.
Beer is one of the oldest and the most widely consumed alcoholic drinks in the world. It is produced by the brewing and fermentation of starches, mainly derived from cereal grains (commonly malted barley, though wheat, maize (corn), rice, and oats are also used). During the brewing process, fermentation of the starch sugars in the wort produces ethanol and carbonation in the resulting beer. Most modern beer is brewed with hops, which add bitterness and other flavours and act as a natural preservative and stabilizing agent. Other flavouring agents such as gruit (a herb mixture), herbs, or fruits may be included or used instead of hops.
When beer is distilled, the resulting liquor is a form of whisky.

200g white bread flour
4 tsp caraway seeds

Guinness or other dark ale (at room...
I was going to make a classic British beef stew but then I spotted a bottle of Guinness ‘West Indies porter’, which inspired this dish. If you really can’t take the heat leave out the Scotch bonnet. However, if you use it whole (pierced with a sharp knife), it releases a gentle heat and a...
This beer bread is easy, delicious, and goes extremely well with soups, stews, and pasta. It also makes an excellent sandwich bread, especially for tomato sandwiches. I couldn’t swear to it, but I think the recipe is originally from one of the Heartsmart cookbooks by Bonnie Stern...
This gravy is great with ‘bangers and mash’ but it would be good with other meats or braised tofu ‘steak’ for a vegan meal. The ‘sticky’ derives from 'all American' grape jelly (kindly posted to me by my lovely American friend). Its difficult to obtain in the UK. You could substitute redcurrant...
I've decided to revamp my Recipe - Vegan Black Bean Brownies recipe in light of the current beer ingredient challenge (The CookingBites recipe challenge: beer). My original black bean brownies were written up just under 10 years ago (by 5 days!) and didn't include any beer. From my search for...
I'm not gluten free, but I do love chickpeas so this recipe was a must try for me.
I used a very light vegan Pilsner beer, but any vegan beer would make it vegan. But if you want a gluten-free loaf, you'll need to track down a gluten free beer. And if you don't want to use beer or can't have...
So what is needed to make a pretzel vegan? Well the first thing is to switch out the milk and butter. Easily done. You can use any non-dairy milk but soy milk or something called "Not Milk" are both ideal. The butter can be replaced with either vegan butter or a dairy free margarine. If using a...

I used a ruby beer for this dish but a darker or lighter beer will also work. Beer really enhances the deep savoury flavour of the mushrooms which contrast with the slightly sweet yet earthy taste of parsnips. The secret is in the reduction of the beer.
Ingredients (serves 2 as a light meal...
