    VEGAN GRAPEFRUIT DONUTSadapted from A Beautiful Mess
1 cup almond milk1/8 cup grapefruit juice1/4 cup sugar1 package (2 1/4 tsp) instant dry yeast1/2 cup plain, unsweetened applesauce1/2 cup + 2 tbsp earth balance coconut spread4 cups flour1/4 tsp saltzest of 1 grapefruitoil for frying
For Glaze1 1/2 cups powdered sugar1/4 cup grapefruit juice
Warm almond milk and grapefruit juice over low heat in a saucepan on the stove. Stir in the sugar until dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in the yeast. Set aside to bubble for 5 minutes.
Heat coconut spread until nearly melted on stove top. Stir in applesauce until fully combined. Remove from heat and pour into a large bowl. Pour in yeast+milk+juice mixture and stir gently. If you have a standing mixer you could beat it on low with the dough paddle, but I did it by hand. Add the flour one cup at a time, fully combining before adding the next. Add the salt and zest, then knead until fully combined and a stretchy dough is formed.
Place in a bowl, cover and refrigerate 8-10 hours.
Flour a surface and roll out the cold dough into a 1/2 inch thick slab. Cut out with a circle cookie cutter or the mouth of a glass. Cut out an inner circle with the top of a bottle (ex: I used the screw top to a vodka bottle). Lay in a single layer on a baking sheet or large plate. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm spot for an hour. 
Heat oil in a pot. I used about 1qt in a stock pot that was wide enough to cook a few simultaneously. You want a deep enough layer of oil for the donuts to initially be submerged then float to the surface. When oil reaches about 375 degrees you are ready to go! Use the donut holes as testers.
Cook donuts for 45 seconds on each side after they rise to the surface. Place on paper towels or in a colander to let oil drain.
Whisk powdered sugar and grapefruit juice together. I dipped them once because I thought they were sweet enough with one layer of glaze, but you could dip them multiple times, letting glaze dry between each dip, if you like a higher proportion of glaze.

    Battered & Fried OkraSoak 1 tbsp flax seeds in 5 tbsp water in a bowl.Rinse 1/2 pound whole okra and set aside to drain, you want it to be damp but not dripping.In a large bowl, stir together 1/2 cup cornmeal, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/4 tsp cayenne, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp onion powder and 1/8 tsp black pepper.Toss the damp okra in 1/4 cup flour (use chickpea flour if you’re avoiding gluten!).Whisk the flax mixture, which should now have a filmy quality similar to a raw egg. Dip the okra in the flax mixture then into the cornmeal & spice mixture to coat.In a skillet or pot heat 2 inches of vegetable oil.Add the okra in small batches, frying for 2-3 minutes until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and let drain on a rack or paper towels.
