yeah but that may be influenced by gas going up $00.50 the first of the year in the USA. I've trimmed down to two tiny boats and am shopping for a trailerable boat for albacore fishing. Kinda like grady's and in particular the 268-270 model.

Well, my theory is that with little alcohol as lubrication they are hitting that perfect score of 10 which is "I would sell not just my soul, but my boat for another experience like that" .

Where did you get that from? I'm well invested in energy stocks so I keep an eye on that market. I've heard nothing along those lines.

re: Mouthwatering Boat Recipes (mainly plant based)

Hi Seaworthy Lass,

Your thread has been my cruising fix since Jan, whilst we are in that "in between" mode, refitting our next boat. Its been my antidote to researching thru-hulls, manifolds, boatyard, LED lighting and the 9-5 world of the salarywomen. Another cruising adventure will be our reward and I've got my new cooker to look forward to . In the meantime keep the posts coming to remind me of the lovely local markets, characters and produce that are out there...

I haven't weaned myself off dairy and eggs so most of my veggie recipes do not count as vegan. The one below is a rare vegan offering from me - you've already covered houmous....

Autumn in the UK means that mushrooms are plentiful and when I came across a whole load cheap, mushroom soup came to mind. Not sure of the availablilty where you are.

Mushroom Soup

1 leek, chopped
1 tablespoon sunflower oil (or butter for a non vegan version)
300g mushrooms, sliced - whatever available I used chestnut
3 cloves garlic sliced
Thyme, leaves only from one fresh stalk or 1 tsp dried
600ml veg stock, fresh, cube or Marigold Bouillion

Gently saute the leek so that it is soft, but hasn't coloured yet
Add the rest of the ingredients, bring to the boil, then turn down to gently simmer for 12-15 minutes until the mushrooms are just cooked. Allow to cool then blitz with a handheld blender. Reheat to serve with crusty bread. Non vegans can garnish with a swirl of cream of choice. The flavour should be strong mushroom with a slight kick of garlic and a hint of the thyme coming through.

Hi MooseMarine
Many thanks for the feedback. It is so good to hear someone is enjoying the thread .

I haven't weaned myself off dairy or eggs (nor do I plan to), but I have found having options when supplies are running low is fantastic. Am I the only one that runs out of stuff? No one else has admitted this ever happens to them LOL.

Thanks for the recipe . With temperatures starting to drop, my thoughts are turning towards soup.

I tend to run out of veggies before I run out of dairy! Temps are increasing again for us so I think soups are out of the window for the time being.

Sage and onion bake

More brown comfort food . Look to some of the earlier salad dishes if you need a dose of colour .

This one is a much loved autumn/winter recipe. The flavour is superb and it is fantastic for using up stale bread. I was reminded of making it again during my walk yesterday. No paths out of this anchorage - it is a cross country trek over sage and thyme covered rocky terrain. The sage is low growing, so treading on it was unavoidable and the fragrance simply heady. I picked a handful of new newly sprouted tips to make this for dinner.

SAGE & ONION BAKE

Approx 10 cherry tomatoes (optional)
​1 mug boiling water
​1 stock cube
​Handful of sage leaves very finely chopped (dry or fresh, the quantity is not critical and the intensity of flavour will depend on the source)
​Grated rind 1 lemon
​1 tsp freshly ground pepper
4-5 onions, peeled & roughly chopped
​2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Loaf of stale bread, tougher crusts removed, finely diced or crumbled
​2 eggs lightly beaten (omit if vegan, but much better with)
​More oil for drizzling

- Halve tomatoes, sprinkle with a little salt and place cut side down so that the juice runs out. If you have the time or enthusiasm, after half an hour pop them on a tray cut side up in the sunshine to dry them out a little and intensify the flavour even further
- Combine boiling water, stock cube, sage, lemon rind and pepper & boiling water and cool
- Sauté onions & cool slightly
- Pour liquid over bread and gently toss until moistened thoroughly
- Add onions
- Stir in egg if using
- Spoon into a shallow greased dish
- Stud with tomatoes, cut side up
- Drizzle with olive oil
- Bake approx 40 minutes

When baked in muffin tins, it makes a good snack to munch on when sailing.

The recipe has been added to the index in post #1, along with MooseMarine's mushroom soup and NornaBiron's risotto.

re: Mouthwatering Boat Recipes (mainly plant based)

Sage & onion bake may contain the most basic ingredients, but the lovely flavour and contrasting textures (soft centre, crispy bottom), means they can double up as yummy hors d'oeuvres when made in muffin tins.

Cold bubbly and hot nibbles in the cockpit arriving in a new anchorage at close to sunset:

Hi MooseMarine
I tried your mushroom soup today. Mushrooms used were Portobello and lacking leeks, I substituted an onion. A thermos was filled and I took this ashore for our campfire dinner tonight.

Bread rolls in foil were heated next to the coals. My hubbie gave the soup a 10/10 rating . Thanks for the recipe .

Hi Seaworthy Lass,

Wow! What a location! Must add to the flavour! I bet that you had wild thyme too.

Glad that the recipe was a hit.

re: Mouthwatering Boat Recipes (mainly plant based)

Hi Seaworthy Lass,

By the way you are not the only one who runs out of stuff. I'm an "inbetweenie" and shore based, but ran out of olive oil last week...

When cruising it's usually eggs and bread... whoops ... leading me to the vegan thread...

Fair winds and smooth seas,

MooseMarine

Potato and leek soup

A classic favourite, but this time I substituted orange sweet potato for a change. I also took a shortcut and used stock cubes - with recipes like this that are heavy on the vegetables and are pureed, I find it makes little difference. The cream is optional, but as with all pureed soups it added a rich touch. Long life cream is easy to source here.

The ingredients can all just be tossed together initially, but I find sautéing the onions and leeks improves the flavour and is easy to do while I peel and chop the potatoes.

The quantities are uncritical and have just been estimated. I usually add enough veg and water to fill my 3 litre pressure cooker. If the soup ends up a bit thick, I just dilute it with milk when reheating.

POTATO AND LEEK SOUP

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 onions, peeled and chopped
4 large leeks (white and very pale green portion only) outer layer removed and sliced
4 mugs water
2 stock cubes
(or 1.5 litres stock)
6 potatoes (or 2 medium sweet potato)
1 tsp thyme leaves
Freshly ground black pepper

To serve:
2 tablespoons chopped chives
(½ -1 cup cream, optional)

- Sauté onion until golden
- Add leeks and cook stirring frequently until softened
- Add stock, potatoes, thyme and pepper
- Bring to pressure, turn off and leave half an hour
- Puree with a stick mixer
- Bring back to boil and seal in glass jars (4 x 750 ml)
- To serve, heat, add cream to taste and sprinkle with chives

One of the jars cooling:
