Vegan MoFo Day 11 - John Cleese

Allo Dinner Plate!

So my good buddy Jojo gave me these Violife cheese slices when I saw her the other week.  She got sent a whole bunch of them to review but as she's a chilli wuss, wasn't up for trying the hot pepper ones.  So they made their way to my sweaty german bands!

They do have a bit of chilli but they're not that powerful.  Although according to my workmates I'm not to be trusted because I tell them I can't detect chilli and then they go off like I've just made them eat a jalapeño!

I decided for lunch to make a recreation of one of my favourite pregan sandwiches, a ploughmans.  There's been this thread on the PPK recently about ploughmans and all these kerazy vegans wanted to add stuff like avocado and fancy pickle! The horror!  So I wasn't sure if spicy cheese would be ok, but once it had a tonne of mayo and branston on, you couldn't even really taste the chilli.

I also had some salt/sweet proper corn and a Fentimanns cherry tree cola.
Dinner, I decided to go for a roast dinner.  I am cooking for my bestie tomorrow and I need seitan for that, so I messed with the chicken style roast from Julie Hasson's Vegan Diner (which is truly awesome).  All I changed was the poultry seasoning to lamb seasoning and added in a crumbled veggie oxo and 2 teaspoons of marmite to darken it up.

It was wicked, with some paxo stuff, maple roasted carrots & parsnips, mashed taters, peas and lots of bisto gravy.

John Cleese = Cheese* 
Dinner Plate = Mate
German Bands = Hands

*There was also another one I could've used for cheese; 'bended knees', it was a tough choice!


  1. Your roast dinner looks great! Yum, gravy! :)

  2. Oh man I am super jelly of your roast, cook one for me soon please!

  3. Your dinner looks truly great.

    I've never heard of that sandwich.

  4. Mayo on a ploughmans? Sacrilege!


    That Fentimans cherry cola is divine. It reminds me of Camden Lock in the 90s, because it's got a very slight whiff of incense to it (in a good way).

  5. I've been on a ploughman's buttie roll recently but with vegusto, love them. Great looking roast dinner too, that chicken style roast is one of my faves. Loving the ryhming slang theme too!

  6. What a great day of food! My English mum loves Branston but I've never been able to make myself try it!! And that roast dindin looks yummo

  7. I've been craving mashed potatoes something fierce recently. Yum!


speak to me, yo!
