I'm not vegan - just a common or garden veggie - but I am thinking of trying to go dairy-free to see if it has an effect on a couple of small persistent and really quite annoying patches of eczema.

I don't use raw milk at all anyway, it makes me feel quite ill to even think of consuming it! I use Alpro soy milk at home for coffee and cereal, but I find it tricky to use in coffee sometimes (splits because of the heat) and I do use organic butter and cheese: so if anyone had any useful suggestions for other brands of non-animal "milk" I could use for tea and coffee, non-dairy spread that is paletable and not made from a million chemicals dyed yellow and which are the best soy cheese style substitutes for when I really, really have to have a pizza I'd be really grateful.

I'm in London, more specificaly Islington, home of the rich hippy and I work in the City so there are plenty of health food shops I can get to easily including the overpriced commercial hellholes of Planet Organic and Fresh and Wild, so finding things isn't a problem it's just finding vegan alternatives that are any good!

I feel silly being the only one posting here lately, but I'd like to find a good brownie recipe if anyone has one. Preferably very moist and fattening. Thanks.

Anyone have any veganized French recipes? Breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, whatever. Thanks!

Pecan Caramel Fudge Pie.

Someone posted this in another forum and I need to find a way to veganize it (hopefully in time for the end of exams this week). And suggestions for the whipping cream? That's really the tricky part for me. I'm not sure if there's a store in Oxford that sells vegan cream, let alone vegan *whipping* cream (which I don't think even exists), and I'm not sure if I should try using agar agar or what. Help?

For crust
1 1/2 cups chocolate wafer cookie crumbs (about 7 ounces)
5 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For filling
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
3/4 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
6 tablespoons light corn syrup
3 cups pecan halves (about 10 ounces)
3 tablespoons whipping cream
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped


Make crust:
Blend all ingredients in processor. Press crumb mixture onto bottom and up sides of 9-inch-diameter glass pie dish. Cover crust and freeze while preparing filling. (Can be made 1 week ahead. Keep frozen.)

Make filling:
Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine butter, brown sugar and corn syrup in heavy medium saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring often. Boil 1 minute. Stir in nuts and cream. Boil until mixture thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Add chocolate. Stir until chocolate melts and mixture is well blended.

Pour hot filling into crust. Using spoon, evenly distribute nuts. Bake until filling bubbles all over, about 10 minutes. Transfer pie to rack and cool.

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
2tb sweetener (date syrup, sugar, etc)
2tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

6. Mix until just combined

3 Tb coriander
3 Tb parsley
chilli powder to taste
1/2 tsp sugar

1.Put everything in a food processor or just mash the hell out of it
2. Heat it up

or go buy some. Cheater.

Make sure your tortillas are warm. But some bean goodness on them, then the tomato sauce. Add vegan sour cream or cheese if you want, and maybe some chopped spring onions for garnish.

hi! i am very tired of eating the same old unhealthy things from the dining hall at my school. i dont want to eat fried food ever again and that seems to be the only hot option at my dining hall some days. anyway i was wondering if anyone here would know any ways to make healthy vegan food on a very tight budget, and without a stove/oven. all i have available to me is a microwave and sometimes a skillet on a hot plate. i am so tired of eating fried foods and veggie sandwiches, please help me!

thanks in advance.
