Well that's gotta beat milk! Chocolate's good for anything so it seems.

My ultimate comfort food is hot chocolate fudge cake with extra chocolate sauce and swedish glace, with a cup of tea.

Meal-wise I would have to agree with the sausage, mash and onion gravy idea. Or vegetable lasagne. Or pie. Or all three!

Deffo fruit and nut choc for me.

I agree with Cherry above - mash, sausages, onions and peas are my fave comfort food as a meal.

Also just discovered village bakery mince pies and alpro soya cream ...that is tasty!

I just had one of those mince pies too!!
They have so much sugar on top, its so unnecessary!
And they fell apart, which my dog enjoyed.

Village Bakery as in Melmerby?

I live two villages along from there. I didn't realise their stuff had taken off quite so much!

I always wanted to try that whole "chestnuts roasting on an open fire..." thing. maybe I'll finally do it this christmas!

my comfort foods:
-almond butter stuffed dates (seriously can eat about 14 or 15 in one sitting if I'm in a bad mood or something... oh but then such a tummyache!)
-any kind of freshly baked vegan bread, cinnamon raisin being my favorite; i think it has something to do with the warmth and the texture that makes it comforting

I think so. However I was only able to get the pies from a health food shop.

But I do see some of their other stuff in mainstream supermarkets.

Troutina- probably right about the sugar - tried not to notice it actually :p

yumm stuffed dates are amazing - i usually use cashew nut butter - i have yet to try almond nut butter but i want to!

mm cashew butter is good too. i just love ALL nut butters.
but you must MUST try almond butter soon. :-) I'm a little biased, though. have you ever had macadamia butter? I want to try it because i love macadamia nuts, but i can never find the nut butter in any stores around here to try.

Umm I guess so...!
They're gluten free etc etc.
My Mum bought them for me from the Health Food shop.

Comfort food for me unfortunately is anything [vegan] junk food like. the higher the cals the better it seems. Ugh! But seriously, munching on junk food all night long really helps the whole self pity-angry mood thing. :cool:

Apple cider, caramel, and soymilk or other non-dairy milk. Yum and warm.

Don't know whether you've tried it, but I use Tesco vegetable gravy granules (in the green tub, but only marked 'vegetarian'). It's in the Animal Free Shopper :).
