Kate L Pugh - Cookery Diary
This is highly experimental. Don't be surprised if I get fed up of
updating it. It's dual-purpose - first, it'll give new vegans or
people thinking about becoming vegan an idea of what a real actual
vegan eats day-to-day; and second, it'll encourage me to cook properly
instead of living on toast.
Week Beginning Sunday 27 May 2001
Not a hugely exciting week in terms of cooking. I was busy.
Had a hangover, and day off work due to Bank Holiday, so I
basically just ate some chips that neve went and got us from the chip
I roasted some vegetables (courgettes, peppers, leeks) this
evening, and put them in the fridge for future use. Also baked a bulb
of garlic and put that in the fridge too..
- Breakfast: Home-made Soya Bread and oat
Raymond's Mushroom and Almond Pate.
- Lunch: Mung Bean Stew, served with Broccoli Rice
(both from the freezer).
- Supper: Stirfried aubergine, broccoli and French
beans, in a mixture of Blue Dragon brand "Spicy Szechuan Tomato
Sauce" and some peanut butter, served with rice.
I made some roasted potatoes with garlic (done in olive oil) this
evening, and put them in the fridge for later use.
The fake ricotta I had for supper was basically home-made tofu
(made from bought soya milk) mashed up with nutritional yeast flakes,
some light stock powder and some ground almonds. It was nice.
- Breakfast: Toast made with home-made oat bread,
and spread with soya margarine and Marmite.
- Lunch: Fried tempeh with Quick Peanut
Dressing, served over noodles.
- Supper: Pizza! The base was some dough left over
from the oat bread I baked this evening. I topped it with Harry's
Magic Tomato Sauce (from the freezer), the rest of the roasted
vegetables from Tuesday, and some leftover seitan from lunch.
- Breakfast: Home-made bread, toasted, with soya
margarine and Marmite; juice; coffee.
- Lunch: A Clive's Pie (Hungarian Goulash flavour),
baked in the oven. Clive's Pies are ready-made vegan pies with some
very good pastry, very nice.
- Supper: Things on toast. Some of Thursday's fake
ricotta; some red onion relish (a Delia Smith recipe I tried out this
evening, very nice), some fake vegan cheese.
Did a fair bit of cooking this evening. Delia's red onion relish,
some fake vegan cheese from a
recipe posted on alt.food.vegan, a gluten-free loaf (a friend
has a gluten sensitivity), again from a
recipe posted to alt.food.vegan. The bread turned out
incredibly well. I do recommend it!
