Eggy (Eddie?) Bread.
Beat a couple of eggs, season if liked, dip half-slices of bread into the egg, then sizzle in the frying pan (we use olive oil for this), until golden, turning once. Eat as is, or squirt with tomato ketchup or brown sauce.
3oz SR flour
1/4 tsp baking powder (optional)
2 and 3/4 oz marg
1 large or two banty eggs, beaten.
a couple of tablespoonsful of milk
A drop of vanilla essence to flavour
Cream the sugar and fat, fold in the egg, milk, flour and baking power, mix thoroughly (but don't knock all the air of of it), Place in a microwaveable dish (preferably a microwave cake ring - see photo), cover with cling film, remembering to pierce the film a few times. Cook for 3 and a half minutes on full power. (Ours is a 900w micro, so increase the cooking time a little if yours is less powerful.). Let stand for a minute before removing from the micro.
Variations: Swirl a teaspoonful of coffee granules into the mix just before pouring into the dish. Or spread a bit of jam/marmalade inthe bottom of the dish and warm the dish in the micro for a few seconds before adding the mix.

Have you tried picking the pepperoni off of the pizza? It's easy and then your special diet needs can fit in with your normal friends.
That's different though, because of the olive oil. I've considered this but never tried it. More like Italian toast, or with salsa, you could call it Spanish toast.
I just remembered that I have some snow peas. I think I'll have that on spinach with brocolli, red bell pepper, some caesar dressing and olive bread. When I get tired of eating salad I don't know what I'll do. I am burned out on pasta.
The market had Wolfgang Puck vegetable stock on clearance for $1 each so I'm going to make some rice, or maybe soup, but it's way too hot for that.
Actually I'm too lazy to cook, I might have some fruit later.
starbucks has the best looking, worst tasting vegan brownies. i always get deceived by the looks, dish out the dough, and then cry all through shovin' em down my throat...
Never keep up with the Joneses. Drag them down to your level.
Okara Felafel (serves 4)
Okara is lees of soy beans when you make tofu.
I'd suggest you to use mashed chick peas.
5 cup of okara
2 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon of chili pepper
1 teaspoon of cumin
Quarter of a teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Half an onion
A cup of water
A cup of parsley
Add this blended stuff to a bowl with 5 cups of okara.
Add one cup of flour.
Make into balls.
Put some oil into a frying pan.
Cook them for about 6 minutes on one side and then turn them over and cook them for about 4 minutes.
dip sandwich/toast bread in soy milk (best if sweet and vanilla, might want to add cinnamon), place on baking paper (on the grate) and bake in the oven, turning once, until crispy.
Eat as it is, or with vegetable margarine or jam, especially if you used simple soy milk.
Pancakes 'on the dole'
Gonna need: flour, water, soy milk (at choice), carrots, raisins. Olive oil for frying.
Grate 2 medium (less than a span) carrots per person. Mix flour and water (quantities depend on how many you are). Add a little soy milk, if wanted. Stir in the carrots. The consistency should be a little thick. Boil some water, wash the raisins (again, as much as you want), drain them and add to the mix.
Put some oil on the skillet, heat it. Non-stick skillet would be good, for carrots tend to burn. Otherwise use a bit more oil.
Use a tablespoon of the mix for one pancake, i.e. make many small ones.
Fry until golden on both sides, take your time, because otherwise the carrots won't be ready.
Enjoy as it is (as I do), or think yourself of what it could be relished with
Some of these look to me as excellent recipies and I do intend to try a few to compliment a steak or something as an alternative to salad. Not a vegetarian but doesn't mean I eat meat all the time.
