VEGAN PÂTE À CHOUX

[Cream Puff Paste]

...Julia describes these shells as 'quick, easy and useful'...
...I started by whipping up some Ener-G eggs...
...and I used soymilk instead of the water...got that hot...
...remove from the heat...then you pour in all the flour at once...this seems like a bad idea...but Julia says to do it this way...
...and beat vigorously to mix it up...
...then put it back over moderate heat...and beat it for a few minutes until it begins to leave the sides of the pan...
...then make a well in the center...
...and start adding your 'eggs'...
...beating them in thoroughly each time...
...make sure it's well blended...
...then add another 'egg'...
...and blend thoroughly again...
...and another...and so on...
...the last 'egg' will take longer to incorporate...
...then Julia says it should be used immediately...while still warm...so fill your pastry piper...
...and pipe your little puffs...
...and bake until golden and puffed...
...see how pouffy...

...Julia says you can fill them with any of the cream sauces...we had ours with some vegan cheese and ham...they were delicious little mouthfuls...

Substitutions:
Earth Balance for the Butter
Soymilk for the water
