A vegan veggie burger. It was pretty good, even though I'm not looking to find alternatives to meat which taste like meat. But I'm working on a project so I don't have time to cook up something better, but I needed something that was substantial enough to sustain me through my all-night session. Which I ought to get back to now...:o

I have eaten both of these things many times before, but not together - medjool dates stuffed with tahini. *drooling right now* - tastes just like halva, but like a million times yummier.

I finally got some nutritional yeast, today, too. It's bloomin hard to get round here. Had a quick taste and I can see me putting it in all sorts of things, too.

Do you make your own Anko or do you buy it readymade. And where can it be bought? Or do you have recipes....

i used to buy it, and also make my own in japan..its easy to make. i used to just guess-timate the amounts but heres a recipe i found on the web which sounds about right.. ;)


Anko (Adzuki Bean Paste)

1 cup adzuki beans
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
Water

Soak adzuki beans in water overnight.

Heat beans in a pot with one cup of water. When they come to a boil, add two more cups of cold water. When they come to a boil again, drain the beans in a colander.

Return the beans to the pot, add three cups of new water, and cook over high heat. When the beans begin to jump around after the water comes to a boil, turn the heat down to low and simmer until the beans are soft, about one hour. If necessary, add water so that the beans are always covered. skim off any foam that appears on the surface.

When the beans are soft enough to break between your fingers, drain them in a colander.

Return the beans to the pot again and mix in the sugar.

Mash the beans continuously over medium heat until almost all the water has evaporated and a paste has formed, about 35 minutes.

Add the salt and stir over medium heat for about 5 minutes more.

Remove from heat and transfer the paste to a container so that it can cool.

The paste may be kept in the refrigerator for three days and then frozen. (Makes 2 cups.)

yummy!!good luck! :D

I tried making a cheesy and mushroom sauce for pasta - using the yeast flakes to make it cheesy. I didn't quite get it cheesy enough, I need to work on the recipe a bit.
