  • Quorn Japanese curry... I've been eating quorn now for more years than I care to remember.. Christmas lunch is always a quorn roast..  so it was a natural development.. I used to work in a japanese school and the japanese curry smells absolutely awesome..it's made with beef.. so I figured.. surely it's possible to make it with quorn?  

    I used to make normal, Indian curries with quorn.. that was nice, but my favourite now is Japanese curry and I really don't make any other kind now :)

    Aside from that... if you mean totally veggie and no pretend meat.. my fav meal in the universe is cauliflower cheese..

    OOOO cauliflower with cheese sauce.  My friend made that using a homegrown cauliflower and her great sauce. It was one of the most memorable meals ever.

    Had to look up Quorn. It said "Quorn is a meat substitute product available in the UK, Ireland, the US, Australia, Sweden, Italy, France and other countries." but I've never seen it anywhere in Australia.

    Am familiar with Vietnamese, Thai and Indonesian style "curries." Particularly love the influences or tamarind, galangal, star anise and coconut cream. Yum!

    Have never heard of curries in Japanese cooking so will look up the ingredients and methods and give it a try. Will let you know how we go.
    Thanks, Daydreambeliever! :-)

    I made this one up. I use all of the root veggies I can find and put them in a stew with some spices. I call it "Earth Stew"... Potatoes,Yams, onions, turnip, parsnip, beet, lots of garlic, rutabaga, carrots. I thicken the liquid with corn starch. The last batch I made wasn't that good and I couldn't figure out why. I shall try again.

    Had to look up rutbaga. Turns out its what Aussies call a swede.
    Yum! I like the sound of your recipe. Will give it a try and let you know how it goes.
    Thank you! :)

    Love the stuffed mushrooms and vegetable soup.
    I tend not to rely on pre-processed or packaged foods. Prefer to make everything from the raw ingredients.
    It we have balls, I make a version using fried onion and garlic, fresh fine ground parsley, soaked, soft-cooked chickpeas, soy or redbean paste, tomatatoe concentrate, pepper, and egg - blend together, make into even-sized balls, coat in sesame seeds, deep fry in rice bran oil, and drain dry before serving with tomatoe and garlic sauce on rice, semolina or buckwheat with green salad  or steam green veg.

  • Self-crusting herbed mushroom quiche. Delicious! (Found it in a vegetarian cook book.)

    Mmm, yum. Something special about mushrooms, how the flavour get concentrated with the cooking.

    Don't tell me you only eat meat! Really? Not even a little fired onion or green salad with a nice dressing on the side?

    Not quite, but it does kinda make it a meal in my world.
     I like things like humus, falafles, vegatable soup, etc.  I don't usually care for "meat replacement recipes" though.   Veggie burgers, veggie meatballs, veggie cheese, that kind of stuff.   It's always a big flat fail IMHO.  When I hear the term vegetarian or vegan recipes, my mind conjures using veggies in place of meat in traditional recipes and it never works out right.  I eat things that don't contain any animal products but they are things that are just run of the mill traditionally veggie based dishes.  Meat substitutes are abominations to me. Tempeh, tofu, quorn, okara,  and textured veg. protein aren't even allowed on my plate.  Same with milks that aren't milks.   I don't like them and try and limit my soy intake.

    Making soups are a feel type of cooking more than a set recipe, and for other things I don't really have special recipes. Just the run of the mill ones.


    As for  onions?  I can eat them alone fried or not.

    In most parts of the world eating a vegetarian is illegal. Not to mention it's just plain wrong.

    Hmm, unless you count grass eating animals as vegetarians.
    Hypothetically leaving the law aside...
    What if the vegetarian donated his or her body to become food - for instance, if, in my will, I left you my body on condition that you eat is as a series of roasts. That way, I could be reincarnated as part of you. ;-)

    Surely there is beef in that, unless it is patent leather and that is not vegetarian either ;-)

    Ditto.
    Steamed fresh vegies with steamed brown rice and tempeh, tofu or chickpeas, liberally doused with teriyake and pickled ginger is one of Ari's and my favourite staples.
    Vegies will be something like broccholi, green beans, spinach or kale, with red pepper, carrots, and fried mushrooms. Yum! :-)
    He and I alternate cooking. His days he usually does this dish. My days a bit more complex.
    We each like each other's cooking, except on the rare occasions when we botch an experiment.

    Portabella burgers. Just like a normal burger, but replace the meat patty with a big ol' Portabella.

    I'm an Australian and not familiar with Portabella.
    Do you have a favourite recipe for it?

    I don't know if you are familiar with Indian cuisine, being an Indian I make a lot of vegetarian dishes;))
    ( if you are not used to spices then I wouldn't recommend it;))
