  • Looks lovely. The food thread isn't all about meat, and tbh that was just a happy accident me posting the sandwich after your post...

  • ^^ No recipes as such but I can write some of my key sauce/ingredients variations down and post them if you're interested?

    ^ Yes but there is A LOT of meat posted here, which is fine, but it means I rarely subscribe [something forumers I'm friends with on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook will doubtless be relieved to hear] :)

  • i tried making brown lentils on friday. we are having brown lentils again tonight. we have had brown lentils every day since friday.

    lentils, they embiggen.

  • Yeah MM well at least tell me if I am in the right direction if it is lentils, cauliflower, etc with some sort of tahini soy garlic sauce or something?

    yeah man. lentils always is the best. I eat meat even but I would walk past a steak for a good mujaddara or something similar.

  • PM me, i can hook you up.

  • I'm in SE4. I wanna eat lots of meat tonight.
    Where do I go?

  • am riding back from Bermondsey to New Malden tomorrow, is there a butcher en route that will have brisket? any of the brixton butchers likely to stock it?

    my local Korean supermarket will only sell me an entire brisket, but I don't want 8.5kg, more like 4 or 5.

    given this is for slow cooking on a smoker I really don't want to pay ginger pig prices

  • JOnes of Smithfield in Herne Hill. Phone first though. There's also a posh new butcher under the railway arch which may have a lump.

    ^ iirc, that one had grilled peppers, onions, celery and possibly mushrooms too.

    My ingredients vary depending on what's in season, who's eating with me, what I find in the supermarket discount shelf and what my dressing calls for. It's fun to experiment and stops me baking quite so much :) I usually throw in some cabbage, sweet onion, carrot, broccoli, kohlrabi, toasted nuts, celery, seeds, pea shoots and/or rocket. Then often some fresh and/or dried fruit - grapes/banana/firm pear/apple/melon/avocado/sultanas/aprico­ts/prunes - all work well, plus fresh herbs if they compliment or aren't in the sauce. If I have any mediterranean veg roasted up I might chuck those in too, or a can of chick peas/beans/quinoa.

    It's tempting to add all the things to all the salads, but of course that would be overkill. The most popular dressings I make at home are tahini, miso, peanut, Dijon mustard, cashew and/or nutritional yeast based. They often have generous amounts of citrus juices and raw garlic (though don't be afraid of powdered garlic/onion/herbs too). They are all pretty damn healthy too.

    For the following, simply combine ingredients and blend until smooth:

    Tahini lemon - juice 2 lemons/25g tahini/2-3 garlic cloves, 5-6 heaped tbsp nutritional yeast (or more), 2-4 tbsp olive oil, seasoning, dash of water, as needed.

    **Zingy coconut peanut ** - 1 handful skinless peanuts (or 2tbsp p/butter), hunk of coconut paste (or 2-3 tbsp coconut milk), juice of 1 lime, slug of soy sauce/ 2-3 garlic cloves/ 1 tsp brown rice syrup or palm sugar/ 1cm fresh ginger/ olive oil (optional), pinch of chilli, sambal oelek or similar if you like a kick. Blend.

    **Marvellous miso **(pairs well with many things - mum puts it on fish/chicken when I'm not looking) -
    1 cup almond or cashew butter (or 1/2 almond, 1/2 tahini), 2 tbsp miso paste, 1 tbsp agave/brown rice syrup (or a few dates), 2-3 garlic cloves, 1 inch fresh ginger, 1-2 tsp apple cider vinegar, pinch of turmeric or smoked paprika, optional splash of sesame oil, water to thin. Blend.

    All these are conflations of various vegan 'bibles'/blogs/Ottolenghi/me. Currently experimenting with pesto...

    My next door neighbour, his prices have gone through the roof since he refurbished the house upstairs and started doing more retail business... He'll order it in but you'll pay twice what you will at Dombey & Sons...

    In short, nice but pricey...

  • Red lentils are my boy. So quick, easy, and delicious.

    If it was a person I'd slap it's arse in a totally patronising coach-y kind of way.

  • Thermomix arrives tomorrow

    Am rather excited.

  • Oh fuck.

    Jel

    Where did you get your brisket from in the end? I'm keen to try one in my smoker but don't want to pay through the nose as I don't really know what I'm doing
