It tastes good. How does it look? I'm trying the eggplant recipe tonight.

Here's the eggplant recipe:

Received a thumbs up from the family. I used thyme and garlic, mostly because I didn't have time to hunt down the masala. Next time. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Polythene Dan and I are both vegetarian. Bungalow Jill was vegetarian for about six months, but she decided that bacon was too tempting. 

By the way, skye, where did you get that Nature's Toothbrush avatar? 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I don't know, around. a-hard-days-night-george-8 I look at Beatles-themed tumblrs – they have some of the most random pictures…

It looks amazing Skye!! I'm so ashamed now, because mine usually looks mushy a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

You can do it with any kind of herbs/spice you want actually.. it's just that masala is what we use on most dishes.

Do I have to keep on talking till I can't go on!

What temperature are you cooking at? I looked up a similar recipe that suggested 325 (fahrenheit). I baked the eggplant slices first for 10 minutes, and then everything together for 30 minutes.

OK, I tried making a "veggie burger" last night. It was no good. paul-mccartney (And since when did beans and rice equal 'veggie'?) Has any one tried the CHOW Veggie Burger?

I got a microwavable bento box for Christmas, and I'm eager to try out some recipes (these two look good as sides). The problem is one of the recipes I want to try calls for Ponzu, which has bonito flakes AKA fish flakes. Does any one know of a good substitute?

Well, I'm assuming "veggie" is short for "vegetarian" and not "vegetable."

I guess it depends on what those flakes are used for. I imagine that they could possibly be left out and/or replaced with either salt or seaweed?

I just bought myself a cookbook that has veggie burger recipes in it called "How To Cook Everything Vegetarian." You didn't get that recipe from there, did you?

It's usually used to make dashi, which is a simple broth or stock. I did find a recipe that uses shiitake mushrooms instead of the fish. I also took a look at the ingredients for Kikkoman's ponzu, and it's pretty much soy sauce with lime juice. Sounds doable.

No, I just googled it and picked one that fit the ingredients I had on hand. What does your recipe have in it?

The basic one is made from oats and beans, there's one made with winter veggies (beets), spring veggies, and summer veggies, oh, and fall veggies, tofu (of course) with seaweed, and nut burgers. I haven't tried any, but those have got to be cheaper to make the second time round than any of the packaged kinds.

I've been a vegetarian for 4 years now.  When I first became a vegetarian, I kept eating fish until I could learn about what to eat better, but it may have extended the amount of time I was craving meat.  For a couple of months I had strong cravings, but I'd just eat some tuna or whatever and tough it out, so that's something to look out for.  I don't eat meat substitutes that often on their own, since they aren't the greatest for you, but my parents will often cook with them.  I can't really help with recipes, since I don't cook that often.  I eat lunch at school, and my parents usually cook dinner, but whatever you eat now can usually be made vegetarian with meat substitutes or a different recipe, well besides steak and other foods like that.  I usually just Google whatever I want to make.

Google is kind of godsend in that regard. brian-epstein I'm making this right now, minus the dried shrimp and fish cakes. You should take a cooking class if you can. It can be fun, and when you move out, take-away can get expensive.
