    Vegetarian / Vegan recipes

    The new Vegan Range stuff in M&S looks amazing, has anyone tried it? I had the Greggs Sausage roll the other day and it was good, I want them to make a Vegan Steak Bake though.

    My favourite thing to do with nutritional yeast is vegan cheese sauce. There are tons of recipes but it's basically boiled potato & carrot with some garlic, mustard, nutritional yeast and optionally, kimchi for a bit of fermented flavour.

    I can't agree with that at all, Schweppes is disgusting and ruins everything it touches. I'm not a huge fever tree fan, but there are a lot of tonics out there that use sugar, or agave for sweetness rather than sweeteners and are lightly sweet, lightly carbonated and properly buttered.

    1724 is a really good tonic that compliments gin well. There are a lot of really good tonics on the market now though if you move beyond the supermarket.

    Rum

    Stiggins Fancy is gorgeous Pineapple Rum, if that's your thing.

    I like the quorn roast, it costs about £2 and cooks in 45minutes. Really easy to throw in the oven and tastes lovely with the rest of the trimmings.

    The Serious Eats Yorkshire pudding recipe is amazing. You could make them in mini muffin tins and fill them as canapes.

    I was in a huge sainsburies the other day and stocked up on a load of vegan stuff. ToFurkey sausages & Chick 'N - I've had the sausages and they are good - basically seitan flavoured with spices and tomato, they fry up well and worked really nicely as a sort of chorizo replacement. Helmans Vegan Mayo - really thick and I think nicer than normal Hellmans. Veganaise is still nicer I think. Sainsburies own brand blue cheese style block. I don't know what this is meant to be like but it smells and tastes like paint stripper. It's horrible. Fry's Sausage Roll - much more sausage than a normal sausage roll, nice pastry and flavour but it was sooo dry.

    Good crisp bad crisp

    I tried Iceland's Christmas Tree flavoured crisps. They taste like toilet cleaner.

    I've been using an oil mix since watching that video as well, but ducks are friends not food, so I use a bit of a different mix - Olive Oil, Butter or Margarine & Coconut Oil seems to give me something similar and I've been getting really crunchy outsides.

    I had the Beyond burger at Honest recently. It's very good.

    Coffee

    You aren't getting these sort of flavours from espresso tho really, especially Starbuck's. Like, I'm not being pretentious, there's a difference between a naturally processed etheopian bean and a dark roast columbian or whatever.

    Coffee

    I bought some of this natural ethopian coffee from a local market at the weekend and it's probably the best coffee I've had for months. https://coffeegems.co.uk/collections/frontpage/products/origin-ethiopia-chelelektu Very fruity, acidic and with a complex, almost fermented flavour.

    Gin

    It's the junipero that just needs a small amount of tonic, and really it depends on the tonic. You can probably go for a bit more with the st George because it's so distinctive, but I'd suggest getting something like 1724 which is gentle and not too sweet.

    If you can get a smaller bottle, or try it at a bar before committing I would. It's very, very, different.
