I don't like it either. :o
:eek: lol

Well, I think it's the sort of thing that you either love or hate. I remember liking "real" eggnog as a child, but lots of people I knew hated it.

You can send me the rest of your Noel Nog, I'll be happy to take it off your hands ;)

I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but the there is a bittersweet chocolate filled with rasberry cream available in stores here that reminds me of something I used to love as I kid (dunno what, just tastes like "childhood"), definitely a comfort food.

Apart from this, I love huuuuuuuge pasta dishes, the easier, the better - tomato sauce or with fried broccoli, lots of garlic and vegan parmesan, falafel in pita bread, and- shame on me- a lot of processed vegan meat substitutes I generally tend to avoid.

But the best still is plain spaghetti with tomato sauce!

Anything with loads of carbs in. A big bowl of olive-oil mashed potatoes or pasta with loads of salt and garlic yum yum yum.

Or my home made marmite pie:

Chop up a head of brocolli including the stalks. Not too fine, but not too chunky. Throw into just enough boiling water to cover and boil until just tender. (This is where amounts get vague depending on how much brocolli you have). Don't drain the brocolli - stir into the water about 1 tbsp marmite and 1 tbsp tomato puree. You may need more. Stir until it's dissolved into the water, then chuck in about 1 tbsp flour and stir until all the lumps are gone. Bring to the boil then simmer until you get a nice thick gravy like sauce around your brocolli. You may need to add more flour or water, but it does need to be quite thick and brown.

Then pour the brocolli and all its gravy into a pie dish and top with a layer of puff pastry. Cook until the pastry is golden. Serve with either mash and extra gravy or chips.

This is so yummy when it's cold outside!

Fruit smoothies right now, but it changes. Popcorn with EB is also a comfort food right now, which is odd, because my comfort foods are usually creamy and sweet (oatmeal with soymilk and banana, soy ice cream, ect)

Must fine a new comfort food!!!! I'm dying here, someone give me ideas. lol Is it possible to make your own hummus, must be, must find a recipe, I do have some chickpeas I think!

Oct 5th, 2006, 07:35 AM
just blend chickpeas, tahini, and lemon juice! (you can add garlic, pepper, olive oil, etc. for whatever taste you like)

Mine is rice pudding :-) I make it with round rice, soya milk and with vanilla pods, bake it around 2 hours. The only trouble there is that we never seem to make enough! I don't put any sugar in but we add either jam, or date syrup..Or whatever we feel like!

Sometimes comfort food is junkfood ...

Chips dipped in gravy or vanilla ice cream
Pasta boiled with loads of salt, margarine and safflower oil with tomato sauce
Hot chocolate
Falafel wraps

Any kind of cake with Oatly cream, also chocolate biscuits, which reminds me I haven't made vegan penguins for a long time. I just coat bourbon biscuits in melted chocolate and leave to set. YUMMY! :p

Aug 17th, 2007, 10:34 PM
Oh Maisiepaise I LOVE bourbon biscuits! Yum :)

My confort food would have to be mash potatoes and vegan spread (or my mum's onion gravy) and some veggies. Or boiled potatoes and veggies!

Potato chips, Fries, Corn Chips, Cakes...anything fatty, sweet and salty lol :D

Cubed Tofu, red, green and yellow peppers (julienned) and whatever veggies i have on hand (usually shrooms, Chinese cabbage and carrots).

I put my wok on really high heat with a little vege oil (just to coat the pan), then i finely chop a clove of garlic and toss that and the cubes of tofu into the sizzling wok, until the tofu browns a bit. Finally i add the fresh veggies and lower the heat just a tad and cover the wok with a lid.

I serve this yummy concoction on a bed of warm rice noodles and drizzle peanut sauce on top of it :rolleyes::rolleyes:. Sometimes ill add a few beer battered tempura zucchini or eggplant to the dish.

This is my real comfort food, i can enjoy this once a week sometimes more and it still tastes as amazing as the first time i tried it :D.

Toast with yeast extract on, most types of cakes (blueberry muffin phase currently here!) jacket pots with homemade colslaw or hummus, hummus in general....sausage and mash, tofu, pasta and tomato/basil sauce, oven chips, sometimes i crave a plate of lightly steamed veggies....

Comfort food for me involves carbs esp bread and potatoes...
