try this its one of my own recipies but tastes amazing

Chocolate Chili Bean Enchiladas

serves 2 -3

what you will need:

quorn mince
red kidney beans
ground cumin
chilli powder
onion
garlic
fresh chillies
tin of chopped tomatoes
chopped fresh peppers
some chocolate powder (hot chocolate works)
rice
tortilla wraps
cheese of your choice
half a lemon
sour cream
some salad

Instructions:

start heating the oven to 200

- dice the onion and 3 garlic cloves
- get a large pan put some oil in the bottom and heat up, then fry the onion and garlic for a minute
- chop up peppers and chillies
- add the mince if frozen break it up
- add chopped up peppers and chopped up chillies
- add kidney beans and chopped tomatoes and stir through
- add half a cup of boiling water
- place a healthy dose of cumin and chillie powder into the mix (be generous)
- stir everything together
- add chocolate power (roughly three tea spoons worth)
- squeeze the lemon into the mix but not all of it

leave this to cook on the hob for about 15 mins

meanwhile cook some rice

- once the rice and the mince is done the oven should be fully heated up, get yourself a baking tray (glass ones are best) with high sides.

- Spoon some rice into a tortilla wrap and then ontop of the rice add some of the mince mix,

- roll up the wrap and place it on baking tray.

- repeat until you have run out of mince

- push all the rolled up wraps together in a row on the baking tray

- cover with a thin layer of cheese and place some fresh chillies ontop, you can also add olives if you wish.

- squeeze the remaining bit of lemon over the top

place in oven for 5 mins or until cheese starts to go brown.

- remove from oven and serve immediately by cutting out the rolls(enchiladas) and serving seperatly

serve with sour cream and salad

Enjoy, is a fun thing to experiment with and usually costs around a tenner

There are millions of vegan recipes on-line now and the difficulty is just finding the good ones. I still cook from paper cookbooks and can recommend the first two books by Das Sreedharan of RASA restaurants. Annoyingly, the first one wastes space with meat recipes, but it is still brilliant. I think South Indian and especially Keralan cooking is the best cooking in the world and perfect for vegetarians. The recipes in these books are somewhat adapted to Western tastes but authentic enough:

(1) Fresh flavours of India, Conran Octopus 1999
(2) The New Tastes of India, Headline 2001

try italianfoodies.wordpress.com - lots of awesome veggie recipes on there.

oh and, veganfitness.net has a recipe section which is pretty good if you know what you're looking for, or if you're prepared to wade through all the crap recipes to find the good ones.

fancy a rice pudding?

this is a favorite,very delicious

Coconut Rice Pudding


Ingredients:
● 1/4 cup Arborio rice
● 2 cups water
● 2 1/4 cups unsweetened coconut milk ( or plain rice milk if you don't like coconut milk)
● 1 cup whole milk ( or rice milk/evaporated milk if preferred)
● 1/4 cup sugar
● 1 tbsp vanilla extract
● 3 ounces raisins (or your choice of dried fruit. Apricots or cranberries would be really good here.)
Directions:
Put the rice and water in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower the temperature and cook the rice, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Drain the rice in a strainer and rinse it; set aside.
Rinse out the saucepan, then pour in the whole milk and coconut milk, stir in the sugar, and set the pan over medium heat. When the milk mixture boils, stir in the parboiled rice and raisins. Reduce the heat to low and let the mixture bubble away gently, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes. As the pudding gets close to done, the rice kernels will be visible in the boiling milk- you’ll see them floating under the top layer of milk. The pudding won’t be thick- that’s okay (it will thicken in the refrigerator)- but the rice will be soft and it will have absorbed 80 to 90 percent of the milk.
Remove the pan from the heat and decide what flavor you’d like the pudding to be- add either the vanilla or chocolate and stir gently until it is fully blended in to the pudding.
Pour the pudding into a serving bowl or into individual cups or bowls. Press plastic wrap against the surface of the pudding to prevent it from forming a skin, and refrigerate for at least 6 hours, until thoroughly cold.

Vegetarian Nut & Vegetable Abattoir.

Kill ten nuts. (Choose those nuts who have show the least readiness to conform to accepted morality).

Crush these nuts.

Pick out their descendants and parade them around in front of the other legumes, while all the time pointing out that descent will not be tolerated in the kitchen.

Single out 5 vegetables from the same race.

Torture and kill one of them by lowering into boiling water.

When this first vegetable is dead, undress the rest and similarly kill them with hot water.

Bury everything in a mixed and shallow grave and set fire to the whole mess.

Using tools, hurry the smouldering carnage into the opening at the front of your head.

Chew.

I judge it entirely by how hungry it makes me, and I like it. :)

BTW, I generally find professional food photography extremely boring. I don't know why.

Edit: Actually I've just remembered that I think there are two people taking pictures. I like the pictures by one of them, but not the other.

the good news is that although some vegetarians seem to live off soya, it's pretty easy to avoid, if you're not the type to eat shitloads of crap bread, fake 'meat' and tofu.

funny thing is, most meat eaters probably ate more soya than i did when i was vegan. and their meat probably ate a lot of soya, when it was alive.

la dolce vegan

vegan rustic cooking

all three are good vegan recipe books that can be found super cheap online and i believe in some libraries even? if you dont want to be vegan and dig your egg and dairy in your meals just switch out their dairy/egg alts for something non-vegan

some faves and good links

Lentil soup is amazing. make it in bulk. freeze what you dont eat. take left overs to work and what not and it is super cheap. curries are in the same economical boat.

also if you feel youre lacking in anything invest two quid in nutritional yeast. carried at any health store, helps thicken up sauces soups etc and is chocablock with awesome vitamins and what not.

enjoy!!

an obvious one but:

Tofu Paella. (I'm not a cook who uses amounts, so sorry)

You'll need:
Rice- Enough for 4 people
Tofu, preferably marinated in some Ginger, Paprika and Soy Sauce ( or cheat and use the Cauldron Stuff)
Peas- prepared (as in unfrozen)
Vegetables- what ever you have in your fridge (I like Mushrooms, Broccoli and Pulses)
Paprika
Soy Sauce
Pepper
Cumin
Garlic and Onions.
Vegetable Stock Cube

Basically, make the rice, and leave it to one side.
Toss the tofu over a medium heat with no oil, but with the Paprika
Oil+ Onions and Garlic + Mushrooms into other pan.
Cook mushrooms for a bit till they look awesome.
Then chuck in the pulses, and peas. then the Cumin, and some pepper, and soy sauce
Then the Tofu, then the rice, then just enough stock to moisten the whole thing up.
cook till everything is just warm enough, and then eat.

i made a decent salsa last night in 12 mins:
get tomatoes, onions, celery, tabasco/ chili peppers.
dice the fuck out of everything with a knife.
i went for the ratio:
6T:2O:4C
and then add some tabasco/ chili, salt and pepper to the diced veg in a big ass bowl.

using your hands squeeze the mix hard and pour out as much water as possible.
transfer to smaller bowl.
serve.
done.

and guac:
get avocados, chop up. get your hand in. mash the shit out of it. add pepper, salt and a seriously diced onion.
done.

Guacamole is good and easy to make as are just about any home made dips. Coming up with a good salsa is difficult if you don't know the tastes of the person involved.

Other than that go with pie (fuck off to the crumblists).

Quick and easy is the quiche. Usually an absolute no no for serving to visiting vegetarians, unless you can bring out a really good one. They key really is in the crust, shit pastry makes you look like a twat.

Take 6oz of plain flour. (Doves organic is good for pastry) and blend in 3 oz of cold margarine with a fork. Keep blending until looks like breadcrumbs. Do not skimp on this part. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and stir well. Still using the fork, mix in cold water, a little at a time until you create a ball of dough that is still a little crumbly. Wrap in clingfilm and refridgerate for 20 mins. Once done, roll out quite thin and line a 9-10 inch pie dish that has been lightly greased with sunflower oil. Overcut when trimming around the edge and crimp in so the top of the crust is nice an thick while the rest is good and thin. Get stabby with a fork on the base and prebake at 180C for five minutes.

Filling. Layer some roasted red peppers on the prebaked base. Whisk together three eggs, about 100ml of milk and 100ml of single cream a pinch of salt and pepper. Make sure well aerated. Mix in a handful of grated gruyere cheese and some finely sliced steamed and drained broccoli. Pour into the base and top with thin slices of round goats cheese and small squares of roasted red pepper.

Bake for 25 minutes or until edges of goats cheese have browned nicely. Allow to cool and serve.

I like the way you are thinking, it's this dynamic laissez-faire attitude that brings a kitchen alive.

French works, also Green beans for similar reasons.

So new recipe:
