Vegetarians: What have you eaten today?

Discussion in 'Vegetarian Diet Forum' started by Enclave, Nov 22, 2015.

  1. Violife halloumi update. I got to try some today! Cooked it on a hot griddle pan.

    My review: Taste and texture are fantastic, but it is nothing like regular halloumi.

    Another review here from my son: "OMG mum, what the hell are you cooking? It smells like feet!"

    Hope that helps :cat:

    Just happy being me

    @Avocado Sevenfold - Whilst doing some ford pron surfing earlier on, I came upon this, and thought of you: http://mylifecookbook.com/2017/03/01/golden-turmeric-chai-smoothie-bowl/ I thought it might tick a couple of boxes in your world.

    Curiously enough, in coincidental keeping with this thread, I had some fabulously rich cauli cheese for dinner this evening. (I'd best not mention the crumbled, crispy bacon it had over the top or people will be hitting the report button!)
     
  5. AB - You're off topic.

    i don't think its a matter of hitting the report button, more the sick bowl .. It is just really vomit inducing .. I was thankful to be in a single room on my resent hospital stay, or I would not have been able to eat anything .. the sight and small of dead flesh is totally offensive to me. This is why we have the vegetarian forum .. Please you wanted to join us ! but not every one is cut out to be veggie .. I also think I am taking this thread off topic !!!
    To day I ate .. cheese and marmite on small toast fro breakfast
    Lunch a slice of frittittartar .. ( cooked egg with veg in )
    Dinner was a lovely fry up .. collie flower grill .. small amount of chips.. tomatoes .. mushroom and a fried egg .. yummm
    Supper is going to be a small chocolate bicckie .. after all I am a T2 in remission ...

    I love those cauliflower steaks, fried in the little chilli butter, with lots of other stuff on the plate. They also work very well on the BBQ.

    I'm yet to understand why there is a reference to bacon in the vegetarian forum... It has the potential to cause offence to some and is somewhat disrespectful. The jest surrounding the reporting facility is equally as disappointing and sets a poor example.

    Breakfast - an apple

    Lunch - Cheese and onion sandwich with tortilla chips. Banana

    Dinner - Macaroni cheese, garlic bread and peas.

    I did a vegetarian day without even meaning to:)

    Sounds good though I'd choose Burgen. Tried the LivLife ... think it was that. First couple of slices I thought it was nice but after that that the texture seemed "off" somehow....

    Just happy being me

    @Sable_Jan

    I like the LivLife, but it is quite spongey.

    I like your new signature!

    It started working again on the App just recently...the website one doesn't show on the App. Both show on the website...odd...
    Bit wet spongy....but you nailed the texture..mayb it IS best toasted....used it for butties. Guess it was once I opened it the texture changed. Got a multiseeded loaf cooking ... real bread so I will have to be careful...

    Just happy being me
