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

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.

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.
