Ive never been much of an egg fan but the scrambled tofu they do in Boston Tea Party breakfast is very nice and there’s a recipe here:

Like with the Bosh books they use onion powder, garlic powder and nutritional yeast for flavour. If you get the Bosh books you’ll probably use those things a lot.

I don't think you should be imposing roles or values on threads, guys.

I'd just like to say I admire The Vegans though I am not one.

I get so bored of the rhetoric aimed at vegans by meat eaters. I wish I had the will power to join in.

We do a few meat free days a week though..

One of my fucking colleagues sat their bitching at me for eating a Mars Bar. I may or not may not have posted about it but fuck off. Do I look like I give a toss?

"They're not vegetarian". DO tell HR every damn time.

When did things become "plant-based"? It's just some marketing campaign isn't it?

If you don't mind Heather Mills, she is launching some new products.

Nice biscuit conditional there, Leftie.

I suppose "plant based" sounds nicer than "mass-produced fungus" which is what some of the meat-replacement things are.

Leftie - 16 Oct 2019 12:59:49 (#21 of 530)

Well just call them vegan.

How can a poster here 'impose' anything on anyone?

A censor, a censor, my kingdom for a censor.

Saying something should be removed is not censorious? Really?

I think it's an attempt to sound less doctrinaire, putting the focus on the heslth benefits of eating plants for everyone rather than just those who don't eat any animal products.

Anyone else find the vegan versions of Quorn pieces and (s)ham slices not as good as the veggie versions?

Leftie - 17 Oct 2019 09:59:42 (#30 of 530)

I've never tried Quorn.

RosyLovelady - 17 Oct 2019 10:24:23 (#31 of 530)

Cats nails it.

I think plant based is more for those who are doing it for the health / clean eating reasons. Kind of takes the politics out of it
