Nicola - what do brussel sprouts taste like exactly? I've never tried them and I get mixed answers when I ask if they're good or not...

Brussel sprouts are one of those classic foods you hate when you're a kid but develop a taste for when you're older. I love them - try them drizzled with a peanut butter/soy sauce/lemon juice sauce and maybe some toasted seeds - mmmmm!! Also don't overcook them, that makes them really nasty and soggy.

I was never fed brussels sprouts as a kid, but I loooooooove them now. Absolute favorite way to prepare them is to roast with some olive oil, salt, and pepper for 30 to 40 minutes. They char a little and get a bit crunchy and are so good. To me the taste is just kinda like a green veggie, like baby cabbages. If you like broccoli and cabbage you'll probably like brussels sprouts. If I don't have time to roast them, I cook them in the microwave for a couple minutes then sprinkle on cajun seasoning.

today:

breakfast: vanilla almond shredded oats w/ soy milk

snack: banana

lunch: scrambled tofu w/ shiitake mushrooms & spinach, two pumpkin pancakes w/ maple syrup

snack: two kiwis, bbq soy jerky

dinner: salad (romaine, spinach, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, celery, green peppers, radishes, alfalfa sprouts, mixed beans, creamy herb dressing, and bacos), roasted broccoli

later: either a pumpkin pie milkshake or pumpkin raisin cookies. probably the milkshake :)

I was supposed to start eating healthily again today after a week of barely eating at all. The day started out ok, but I've lost my appetite again.

2 cups of coffee with Silk creamer.

9 pieces veggie sushi.

1 pita bread with hummus.

a few peanuts (from the shell).

Not hungry now.....might eat something else when I come home from Yoga.

Aww, you really have to try them! I love them!
Didn't used to when I was younger, but now they're my fav part of my meal :D
I think becoming vegan also helps to develop an appreciation for less processed foods- i've found myself liking vegetables (and even some fruits :o) that I didn't like before.
I just steam mine- they have a really good texture too. You should try them- 'tis the season etc etc.

fiamma, i make my gravy from scratch.

my yorkshire pudding recipe is in here:

http://veganforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3434&highlight=yorkshire+pudding

and my vegan gravy recipe is:

Vegan gravy recipe:

1 vegetable bouilion cube
2 cups water
half teaspoon onion powder
few good dashes garlic powder
a little sea salt and pepper
couple tablespoons full of nutritional yeast
few good dashes of tamari soy sauce (or normal soy sauce, just add until it tastes right)
a little squirt of mustard
about 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of brown rice flour
tablespoon of vegan butter

combine all ingredients in pot, whisk while bringing it to a boil. cook on medium low heat until done.

i didnt have nutritional yeast though so i tried it without and it still worked fine, it just needed more onion powder and soy sauce than originally.

Haha, excellent. I bought a big can of pumpkin last week and I'm trying to think of ways to use it up. For the milkshake I used a third of a pint of Soy Delicious vanilla ice cream, two big spoonfulls of pumpkin, just a little soy milk (the pumpkin makes it creamy already), shakes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Blended it up, then crumbled one sheet of graham crackers into it. Oh, and I added a bit of maple syrup to sweeten it up.

oh my that sounds absolutely phenomenal!! ive had a can of pumpkin (w. no can opener oops) in my room for a while but 1. i cant open it and 2. im in a dorm so dont have the facilities really to make anything with it. thought about adding some to oatmeal or something. but now i think im going to wait and bring it home w. me and make one of those shakes over thanksgiving!

:eek: THANKS so much! The gravy recipe I've been using is full of vegan margarine (too fatty and too expensive to make every time I want gravy) and has mushrooms, which I'm not too fond of (I like my gravies smooth). :D

*sings "I'm having mashed potatoes and gravy tomorrow! Doo doo! La la!"*

Bleh, I hate that, Cherry! I was making garlic bread once and I "double dipped" my butter knife into my margarine container. The knife has some garlic bits on it and the rest of my margarine tasted like garlic! Argh. I could only use it for savoury things after that. :(

Yeh, I thought it must have been that, but on closer inspection it seems I left the open bread packet on top of half a bulb of garlic! Oops. Didn't think it was QUITE that strong!
