    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...

    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!

    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.

    I had an Amy's cheeseless pizza yesterday. I've had those pizzas before, but this time, I made a couple of additions.

    I added some chopped Yves "chicken" tenders and some soy cheese for the last 5 minutes of cooking. YUM!

    A lovely malt loaf thing my Mum made. It tastes a little like Fig Rolls (which I don't think are vegan).

    Lots of things, well two actually! I had split pea soup, although we used some other type of pea, and you know that Orgran egg replacer, i had that in my pancake, which tasted no different to non-vegan pancakes!

    I made myself a smoothie yesterday and haven't used these ingredients together before: organic banana, chopped peach, chopped mango and organic apple juice and ice.

    Usually I use soy milk in smoothies - but I found it a lot more refreshing with the apple juice which is so deliciously sweet!

    Well, I just found this thread and am happy to report that Thursday I discovered Medjool dates! OMG - you are so right Banana, they taste like carmel and are awesome! I gobbled them up, so today I bought some more at a normal grocery store (the other ones were from my co-op) and they were dry and yucky and I fed them to my dog. : ( Are dates expensive in Australia? They were $6.99 USD a pound here (that probably doesn't mean much to you huh?).

    the same day I discovered curried cashews at the co-op. Doggie like those too.

    Today i tried Hansen's Natural Raspberry soda. It was on sale for $1.59 a six pack.

    Yum, I'm eating now a toasted 7 grain bread tomato (fresh from my sis's garden) sandwich, with my new Trader Joe's Reduced Fat Mayonaise (eggless and dairyless). I used to buy Veganese for mayo, but this new stuff is so much cheaper and tastes almost just as good!!
    Yesterday for the first time I had their Thai Green Curry Sauce with coconut milk in it, wow what a hot spicey kick to it!!!

    Today I had a potato and spinach roll from the students organic food co-op at uni. It's a pastry made by this special Indian chef who caters to organic places around Melbourne and I'm working my way through his vegan products. I've tried the dahl pie, tofu and pumpkin pie, and now the roll which was the best!

    It made my toes curl...

    I tried another thing from the co-op today, "birds nest" which was mashed potato wrapped around a spicy mushroom bolognaise type thing then dipped in something spikey like little pine needles (giving the birds nest appearance) then baked.

    It was pretty good, but I only had about 5 minutes between lectures and it was definately not an eat on the run type food. I have to learn to get there earlier on thursdays and eat before my first lecture.

    The other day I had an Amy's brand frozen Black Bean Enchilada Meal with beans and rice on the side.

    I had one 7 years ago (when vegetarian) and I couldn't eat it - I thought it was horrible! They were on sale at the store so I picked on up a few weeks ago for when I am running late in the morning and don't have time to make a lunch.

    It was sooo yummy! I suppose it was my tastebuds that changed, and not their recipe....

    I just tried Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese...it was really good! I had been avoiding it because of the hydrogenated oils, but today at the hfs they had the non-hydrogenated kind and it was on sale too!

    Woohoo!

    It was very creamy and not as salty as milk cream cheese. I was kinda leary of it, as most substituites for cheese I don't like the smell or feel of. But this stuff smells OK. I figured nothing could taste worse than fat free milk cream cheese - that stuff is much more "fake" than this!

    So, I tried a few tablespoons on some corn chips with some salsa and green olives - pretty good!

    It was a total splurge - I am not sure how often I would really want to eat it. I was never a big fan of of cream cheese on its own, mainly just ate it on bagels. But I know a lot of dip recipes call for it, do i will have to dig up some recipes.

    Today, for the first time, I ate a home-made mayonnaise.

    I put into the blender a pkt of silky tofu, some ground garlic, a Tbspn each of water, olive oil, and 6 semi-dried tomatoes drained of oil, then pureed until creamy. I also seasoned with a herbal powder. Then on a plate of watercress, parsley, tofu pieces, and chunks of some boiled beetroot, I dressed the lot with my home-made mayonnaise. Delicious, and I've saved some mayonnaise for tomorrow.

    When I went to Lentil As Anything on Saturday night, I had a gross Tofu mayonnaise that was served on the side. I hope yours was tastier then that and by the sounds of it, it certainly was
