Nice one Chimp!

I should add that I'm not making fun of Vegans, just found Chimp's comment amusing.

being serious for a moment

get Madhur Jaffreys Eastern Vegetarian Cookery which is one of our reference books. she also has another one called World Vegetarian Cookery. obviously not all vegan recipes, but enough to keep you going (so to speak) for choice

But only Scottish porridge, made with salty water rather than milk.

Have a fantastic recipe for vegan chocolate cake somewhere, was the ultimate treat when I was a student. Although might be slightly wrong if veganism is for health.

trin - I've got a whole selection of vegan / vegetarian recipes somewhere as HTML files. I'll try to dig some out for you.

How about :
spicy chickpeas

1 teaspoon each of : curry, ground coriander, chili powder, ground cumin, and paprika

1/2 teaspoon each of: ground allspice, salt, and cayenne pepper

Mix with cooked chickpeas

I cooked them in a 400 degree over for around 30 minutes and they were yummy!

These are taken from a website called :

FATFREE: The Low Fat Vegetarian Recipe Archive

I've used some of the recipes even though I'm not a vegetarian. Some turn out better than others.

I'm very sorry for tempting you, but it seems to have disapeared! I know it invloved malt extract at some stage! And usually a broken up bar of Maya gold.

Although you can just buy egg subsitute at health food shops and use that in a normal recipe.

Am fine lass - just contemplating whether to do the local 10K this coming Friday evening - it's a fairly late start (7:30pm) which means finish by about 9:00ish, home for a shower, etc, and get something to eat.

And then I have to decide whether to go out that night to rave it up slightly.

Can I manage a 10K and a night out tripping the light fantastic? Is it dangerous to drink alcohol so soon after a run? LOL - will probably find out if I do it!

i'd like to second FB's suggestion - madhur's eastern veg cookery is very good. lots of the recipes are really simple but very tasty. i love bengali tomatoes, cauli steamed with whole spices, tofu in a deliciously spicy sauce, delicously spicy chick peas - i could go on and on. there's alos quite a bit of info about ingredients and foody tales about her family.

anna thomas' books are also quite good - again they are veggie rather than vegan but still have many vegan recipes.

some other ones from that Madhur book

green beans with coconut
beetroot and tomatoes (whatever you do do NOT spill on white shirts - also has turmeric in it!)
courgettes, stuffed with spicy bulgar wheat, and hot yoghurt sauce

am not veggie or vegan but I do like good veggie food
