I'm not a vegetarian or vegan but I am interested in a partial raw food diet. I think it's about time we had a spot for posts related to this diet/ lifestyle choice.

This is a really filling dinner which can be eaten hot with vegetables and gravy or cold with a salad. As it takes an hour in the oven to cook, you can bake potatoes at the same time.



1 tin baked beans

4 oz. (100g) bread crumbs

4 oz. (100g) vegan 'sausage' mix, e.g. Sosmix.

1 onion.

Mixed herbs.

Preheat oven to Gas Mark 4 / 180 °C / 350 °F.



Mash the baked beans in a bowl and stir in the bread crumbs. Leave for 10 mins. In the meantime, chop the onion and fry for a few minutes. Add sausage mix, onion, 2 teaspoons of mixed herbs and salt and pepper to the bowl. Mix well and place into a greased loaf tin. Brush the top with oil and bake for one hour.

Jam Rolly Polly

8 oz. (200g) Self Raising Flour

4 oz. (100g) Vegetable suet

1/2 to 1/3 Jar of jam (Strawberry or Raspberry are best)

Preheat oven to GM 6 / 400 °F / 200 °C.



Mix flour and suet in a bowl. Add a little water to form a dough (not too much so it isn't sticky). Roll out to a square shape and spread with jam. Roll up into a sausage shape and sprinkle sugar on the top. Bake at top of oven for around 30-40 minutes until pastry is crisp and light brown. Serve with custard (Several brands of custard powder are vegan and can be made with soya milk.

Great vegan meal for the kids full of nutritional value.

Although I love vegetarian meals as much as meaty ones, I can never understand why vegetarians have to have vegetarian alternatives to sausages, meat loaf, burgers, etc, why not call them something else?

Jam Roly poly is lovely but I'm trying to get rid of my love handles and that is just too bad! :lol:

Ever tried a green shake? A raw food alternative, just blitz a mango with a large serving of spinach and water to make it a thinner consistency.

I agree with 100% Blu, I cannot understand either, yet I am a veggie.

I would never eat vegitarian sausages, or a pie made from quorn etc, as to me it looks like a sausage, it looks like a pie, so why bother?

I like meat too but interestingly enough, after having a raw day yesterday I was full of beans late at night and not sleepy.
