I enjoyed eating there with a friend. That kind of food is full of slightly unusual tastes and textures and it’s nice to have a lunch out where you don’t overdo the calories. You feel all virtuous as you emerge. Which probably explains why everyone hates vegans!
Made this to go with a South Indian style chana dal dish- very nice
I upped the green chillies and just used desiccated coconut rehydrated with boiling water
is that The Green Kitchen?
More like The Green Bogs, I’d have thought.
That’s probably closer to you than me!
I’m talking about NoMooMoo, by the Abbey
Y’see, even the name of the fucking place is defensive. Why can’t they be a vegan restaurant plain and simple, without the politics?
My favourite name is Veggie Perrins in Plymouth
It’s not run by vegans. Just people cashing in on the trend.
Not doing veganism much good really…
Few people under 40 will have a clue.
This is true as a rule and not just about Reggie Perrin. It gets worse for the older age profiles though…
Mmmmm, that looks incredibly satisfying.
One is whole grain, new recipe ?
It was good. I have been getting into star anise with meat and stuck a couple in the braising liquor. Really adds depth and body without making it taste Asian.
best way for short ribs IMO - soy, beef stock, Shaoxing wine (or dry sherry), 5 spice, ginger garlic, spring onions and star anise.
I find that star anise is the best illustration of the “less is more” mantra. As soon as you can taste it, you’ve added too much!
