Red Velvet Churros

Cooking time 20 minutes

Ingredients

For the Churros:

1 cup water

1/2 cup butter

Red food dye

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup minus cocoa powder

3 eggs, beaten

Cinnamon sugar ( 1/2 cup granulated sugar mixed 1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the cream cheese dip

4 ounces cream cheese, softened

2-4 tablespoons soy milk

1/4 cup powered sugar

Pinch of salt

Method

Make the churro dough: in a medium saucepan, combine water, butter and red dye. Bring to the boil over high heat. While stirring, gradually add the flour, cocoa powder and salt. Continue to mix until a dough ball starts to form. Cook for another minute. Remove from heat.

Transfer dough to a stand mixer with paddle attachment. While dough is still warm, beat in the egg mix gradually on high speed. Dough might look like it’s separating but it will come together. Mix until all eggs are combined and dough is smooth. Place in piping bag with a star tip.

Fry the churros: in a heavy stock pot, heat 4 inches of sunflower oil to 350 degrees. Using the piping bag, squeeze churros dough strips into oil, and cook for about 2 minutes per side. Remove from oil and let cool slightly. Roll churros in the cinnamon sugar.

Make the dip: in a small bowl, combine softened cream cheese, milk, powdered sugar and pinch of salt until and mix until creamy and smooth. Serve alongside churros.

I have develop a passion for natural and healthy life style, starting with a vegan life style including regular exercising each day. Which helped to feel inspired and happy within myself. my diet is very restricted due to severe allergies! When ever a food triggers a hostile response from the body's immune system the result is an allergy attack, which on occasion may be life-threatening although it's relatively simple to identifying problem foods, avoiding them completely is not always easy. My journey with allergies hasn't been easy "but" it has helped me to becomes a stronger person and would like to share and encourage others to never get discouraged, there's always light at the end of the tunnel if you keep persevering.
