pirate re: Mouthwatering Boat Recipes (mainly plant based)

Americans, especially, will fry anything.

I have been traveling on family biz and eating in restaurants over the last several days. Beyond the ridiculous expense, restaurant meals are just not as good as even the most modest meal I can prepare onboard.

I had one entrée, grilled salmon with lobster on top, that reminded me of when in Rome ... One does NOT order seafood in the Heartland. Can I have my $37 back? The two beers were the best part and I drink low buck beer. (I mention beer as this is, after all, a vegan thread.)

I dragged my battered butt back aboard after midnight but still was delighted the boat was still afloat, and to be back home out here on the edge, be it ever so humble.

Requested by Annie in WA.
I use a round tin that unclips at the side.. the shallower cake cooks quicker.. also I use a bit more dates and nuts... and dribble a generous amount of honey on top at the end.. while still a little warm..
Date Walnut & Honey Cake.
225g self-raising flour
½ tsp ground cinnamon
175g softened butter
100g light muscovado sugar
3 tbsp clear honey
2 eggs, beaten
2 medium, ripe bananas, about 250g/9oz total weight in their skins
100g stoned dates
50g pack walnut pieces

Method
Preheat the oven to 160C/Gas 3/fan oven 140C. Line the base and long sides of a 900g/2lb loaf tin with greaseproof paper, buttering the tin and paper.
Tip the flour, cinnamon, butter, sugar, 2 tablespoons of the honey and the eggs into a large mixing bowl. Mash the bananas and chop the dates (kitchen scissors are easiest for this) and add to the bowl. Beat the mixture for 2-3 minutes, using a wooden spoon or hand-held mixer, until well blended.
Spoon into the prepared tin and level the top. Scatter the walnut pieces over. Bake for 1 hour, then lightly press the top – it will feel firm if cooked. If not, bake for a further 10 minutes.
Cool for 15 minutes, then lift out of the tin using the paper. When cold, drizzle the remaining honey over. Cut into thick slices.

re: Mouthwatering Boat Recipes (mainly plant based)

I hope you folks will be careful with that vegan diet. You may want to mix in a little animal fat and animal protein for better health.

Since I've gone "Primal" I have noticed all sorts of positive changes.

Last week I was able to do around 52 miles on the bike, 5 miles running, and a real gym workout on weights not just playing around with the weights. I haven't been able to do this for quite a long time in the same week which I'm thinking now was due to my "healthy" diet of vegetables, broiled fish, etc, etc.

Beer is pretty dang Primal ... or maybe it's just primitive.




Nevermind.

Boatman61 that's an "off topic" recipe. Since when are butter and eggs vegan?

re: Mouthwatering Boat Recipes (mainly plant based)

It's Seaworthy's thread really Boatie, so she can make that decision, it's above my pay level that one.

Coops.

You can find all sorts of alternatives-vegan shortening or coconut oil and add a different binder for the eggs-maybe applesauce or ground flax seeds. And maple syrup, rice syrup or agave nectar for the honey.

Don't let the title fool you (it was selected as sex sells and vegan seems to be controversial - no one was at all interested in the thread with its original title LOL ).

I am not aware of anyone contributing recipes to this thread being vegan (no one has come out of the closest, although several have reported flirting with the notion ). This is just a good collection of recipes to have up your sleeve when animal products are running out on board or you are in an area where they are simply not available. I can often source fruit and veg, but not meat or dairy. Most of the ingredients used in these recipes keep well for weeks if not months unrefrigerated, making then very useful .

It is the "lovers" bit you left out .

(Although it's perhaps a good thing, last time you brought that up I think you wanted to discuss Dutch ovens ).

re: Mouthwatering Boat Recipes (mainly plant based)

Date and Walnut are lovers? Is that allowed in today's PC world? Mixed organic mating.

Coops.

That's me. I would dearly miss cheese. Definitely not vegan but I do like having meals without meat. I love all of the recipes here. They meet my criteria for food- just being tasty

re: Mouthwatering Boat Recipes (mainly plant based)

Been on a plant-based whole-foods diet for about 2 and a half years. (99%) I also avoid refined sugars and other processed foods. You can be a vegan and eat cookies and cake... but that's not respecting your body. Wife and I are doing it for good health -- not as "ethical vegans" (although there certainly is a lot of validity to their point of view).

The 1% is situational: Either impulse or lack of alternatives.
