Vegan MoFo Day 3 – Bacon, Coconut, and a Great Can

Day 3 and I already our fridge is almost full!

Yesterday I marinated some tofu in the bacon marinade from It Ain’t Meat Babe. I think I’ve posted about it before but its worth mentioning again. Taste’s great, no fancy ingredients (I even used golden syrup cos out of maple), and so much cheaper than buying a pack of commercial vegan bacon.

Lettuce, tomato, and mayo would’ve been even better, but HP does the job!

Next up I was reading something where El Piano (amazing vegan restaurant in York, go!) was mentioned, which got me thinking about this coconut dipping sauce that I fell in love with there. I’ve done many google searches in vain to find out what it even is, nevermind an actual recipe! It tasted like there were peppers in it, and since I’d got some peppers about to go off decided to give it ago. Sadly, our trip to York was six months or so ago. I can’t remember much about the taste other than the peppers, and that I fell in love with it (even wiping out the bowl with my fingers!).

My result had creamed coconut, a yellow pepper, salt, pepper, coriander, bit of chili, dash of lime, and maybe a few other dashes I’ve forgotten. Its nice, but its not El Piano. I don’t remember it being gingery or garlicky, and more cooling than hot, but maybe my memory is wrong… Anyone??

El Piano do a cookbook (or several), buying them is probably a good idea!

And finally, my amazing Ste came home last night bearing gifts of tofu satay skewers (no way I could save any for a daylight photo) and this awesome can.

It tasted like cheap white cider rather than perry, but hey, the can’s cool!


burger quest part 2

Or should it be part 3 since its the 3rd burger? Nevermind. The 3rd contender is Asda’s meat free chargrilled burger mix. I was planning on getting other burgers before work but ended up preferring the extra time in bed, so decided I’d find something from the 24hr HUGE asda afterwards. Pretty glad I had that extra snooze time cos these are pretty ace.

Its dry stuff like the Granose burger mix. Tastes very similar, maybe not quite as “fairground burger” as the granose, I’ll let you decide if thats a good or bad point! Definite good point is 78p a pack, which makes 4 big burgers.

Mmm, pretty fucking amazing. We ate these with Full Metal Jacket and strongbow. Good night! Oh and one can of Fizz yellow plum each. Best drink, not too sweet like the other flavours, just like drinking really nice apricoty peachy pop.


sorry ste!

I was a dick to the bab so to apologise I made him his favourite meal.

Sausage, mash, and beans. Yeah its nothing fancy, but he loves it! Really does hit the comfort food spot.

And nice ciders n all.

Tutti Frutti, Toffee Apple, and Lemon. Maybe I should stop getting so pissed and just drink nice ciders instead.

Made this sweet and sour TVP based on the recipe at The Vegan Ronin (killer blog!), but wasn’t mad on it. Deffo needs garlic and ginger adding I reckon. A meal without garlic, what the fuck??  My TVP looks like dogfood. Nice.


Turnip mash, onion gravy, and stuffing balls (using the shitey netto stuff, too much sage, tastes strange).

Here’s 2 flyers for gigs Ian’s putting on. Should be ace.



Propagandhi tonight. This baby will be consumed.
