What is leek pudding? Sounds good.

FGBFGB - 15 Dec 2020 10:22:43 (#482 of 530)

Self raising flour and suet, and finely sliced leek and herbs mixed into a dough, the wrapped in foil and steamed for an hour. Not bad, though I should have put more herbs in (even though I used three times what the recipe said).

When I was first away from the ancestrals, and leaning a bit about cooking, I discovered leek and potato pie. Delish, and very easy for a rookie cook to achieve.

Cooking in a Bedsit by Katherine Whitehorn was where I got that from. It was my first cookbook standby.

Not many vegan recipes in that book, as I recall.

Correct. Over-focused on the leek question.

suet

erm...

nemo75 - 15 Dec 2020 15:00:29 (#487 of 530)

That does seem an issue-ette

FGBFGB - 15 Dec 2020 15:42:26 (#488 of 530)

Vegan suet. Atora make it, major supermarkets sell it.

FGBFGB - 15 Dec 2020 15:50:16 (#489 of 530)

I have put that pie on my 'To eat' list.

Cor, that sounds great, FGB.

LardyStuffer - 16 Dec 2020 09:41:06 (#491 of 530)

Veg suet has been around for at least 40 years

ISawMontyKissingSantaCl - 16 Dec 2020 10:19:17 (#492 of 530)

It's only recently that we've realised that most pastry is vegan, certainly the JusRol ones.

Vegan Baconnaise is coming!

Sounds good.

We have just had griddled cauliflower with orange, pecans and tahini from Hugh F-W 's Much More Veg.

Absolutely delicious. I' d like to make and eat it all over again, but we are now out of cauliflower, oranges and pecans.

binturong - 23 Jan 2021 13:27:35 (#496 of 530)

Yes, I can see that would be a slight problem.

MontyPeculiar - 23 Jan 2021 13:30:00 (#497 of 530)

I’m not that keen on orange as a flavour in savoury food. We’re just about to have homemade sun dried tomato hummus with olive bread (not homemade).

FGBFGB - 23 Jan 2021 13:40:20 (#498 of 530)

That sounds good. Home made hummus is streets ahead of supermarket stuff.

limegreen - 23 Jan 2021 14:11:27 (#499 of 530)

I have cauliflower and a blood orange. And some sort of nut.

Catspyjamas17 - 23 Jan 2021 14:21:41 (#500 of 530)

I am a fan of supermarket houmous. My home made houmous gives me absolutely noxious wind.
