Wow SWL, the title change sure did get a lot more attention -- good on ya! Like Coops and Bobconnie, I'm not a vegan. So I'm thinking my killer chili verde recipe is not appropriate here -- but I have certainly added a few more recipes to my inventory here. Thanks for the thread, I enjoy expanding my horizons -- but maybe hubby doesn't. We'll work on that, meaning I'll change the context to include sex -- he'll love that (and probably eat anything)!

Love you sweetie -- if you are reading!

re: Mouthwatering Boat Recipes (mainly plant based)

Even carnivores still like Baked Beans don't they?

Baked beans
from a recipe by Frank Camorra, published in the Sydney Morning Herald

This makes a lot of beans. You can use whatever sort of paprika you happen to have in the cupboard,

but the smoked variety imparts a beautiful campfire quality.

375g dried navy (or cannelloni) beans, soaked overnight
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 carrots, diced
2 thick rashers streaky bacon, cut into 1cm strips
2 red capsicum (peppers), cut into 2cm squares
400g can tomatoes
1 bay leaf
1 sprig thyme
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon crushed coriander seeds
3 tablespoons maple syrup (or treacle, golden syrup or honey)
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
salt and black pepper

Preheat oven to 160 deg C.
Rinse beans, then cover with cold water in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, strain, and rinse with cold water.
Heat oil in a large ovenproof casserole dish and sauté onion, garlic, carrot and bacon for 5 minutes.

When onion softens and bacon sizzles, add capsicum.
Purée tomatoes and juice in a food processor and add to casserole dish with beans and remaining ingredients, except syrup and vinegar. Mix well. Add cold water to cover beans by 4cm.
Put casserole dish, tightly sealed, in oven and bake for at least 4 hours. Stir well after 2 hours and check beans are still quite moist (add a little water if too dry and reduce oven temperature).

After 4 hours, stir in syrup, vinegar, salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper.

The beans should be in a rich sauce. If too thick, add a little extra water; if too runny and the beans are tender, increase oven temperature and continue to cook.

Serves 6.

Carnivores are bound to like your baked beans, they have got bacon in them.

Hi SmartMove
Well, I can at least now say it's true - sex does sell LOL. And I didn't even have to offer my body up to find that out

As I have a meat lover on my hands and often no access to meat for weeks on end in summer, I have had to experiment and I've found lots of good substitutes. I find as long as the pulses are 'disguised', my hubby will happily eat them, so pureeing soups is a big success. I have learned mushrooms and lentils often make reasonable substitutes for meat in stews, particularly where they are heavily flavoured with herbs or spices.

When I have run out of dairy produce (and it does occasionally happen when cruising) I have been challenged at times. Some of the dishes I have made have been hugely successful though and have become real favourites even when the choice of supplies is unlimited.

Given difficulties in purchasing provisions in many of the best cruising spots and then the difficulties in storing food long term unrefrigerated, many vegan recipes really do lend themselves superbly to cruising.

PM me your killer chilli verde recipe and I will experiment with it (I love experimenting ) and I'll report back .

If you like baked beans you'll love "chakalaka" a South African peasant dish. Google it.

re: Mouthwatering Boat Recipes (mainly plant based)

Thanks Sailfast, I'm gonna try that one for sure.
And Hey Coops you are right, Golly I hope I haven't poisened any vegans.
In an effort to reedeem myself, I have posted another recipe.
Guaranteed to contain no animals

Bret’s Bircher Muesli

I recon Bircher style tastes best. Simply pour your muesli into the bowl and add juice,
Apple juice is great but my favorite juice to use is Pineapple and Coconut juice.
Let it stand to soften for ten minutes, then add your favorite fresh fruit topping and enjoy.
The following recipe makes enough to eat a bowl for breakfast daily for several months.

3Kg Wholegrain rolled oats
750g Cashews
750g Almonds
175g Walnuts
175g Pecans
175g Pine Nuts
175g Pepitos
175g Sunflower Seeds
375g Dried toasted Coconut
375g Dried sliced Pears
375g Sultanas
350g Dried Cranberries
350g Dried Blueberries
350g Dried Acai Berries
350g Dried Goji Berries
200g Sliced Dates
Chia seeds, Linseed etc. whatever takes your fancy really

Dry roast then chop all the nuts
one of those cheap vegetable choppers from kitchen store makes light work of it
Empty Oats and Nuts into a 25 liter plastic tub,
Pears and Dates need slicing first, and then just add all the other ingredients
Mix well and continue to mix while bagging
Vacuum seal in 500gm bags
Nutritious and Delicious

No you won't have poisoned any. There may be a few of them running round in circles flapping their arms and saying Bugger, Bugger, Bugger. That Seaworthy Lass would say worse than that I kid you not.

PS. you sure those Pecans are not animals? Oh, sorry, I am thinking of Pelicans.

Coops.

WOW Bret! That has to be the king of all bircher muesli recipes. It certainly redeems you for your little bacon slip .

You beat me to posting my recipe. This is a favourite breakfast for me. I usually make it non vegan by adding a few dollops of thick creamy yoghurt, but is is great without as well. I will beef up boost my recipe based on yours next time I hit a grocery store . Thanks for posting it.

I make up the serves individually:

SWL's BIRCHER MUESLI

1/4 cup rolled oats
2 tbl sultanas
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
I tbl mixed seeds (generally the mix I keep is sunflower, sesame, pumpkin, linseed in equal quantities)
1/4 cup water

Fruit: apple is the traditional addition, but anything goes (I use tinned peaches if I have run out of everything)
Nuts: whatever is on hand

Mix the first five ingredients and let stand for a couple of hours (the oats soften and the sultanas get really juicy if you give it some time).
Top with fruit and nuts.

Again it is one of those recipes that all the ingredient will store well unrefrigerated for months. Vegan recipes really do have something going for them when cruising .

This morning's breakfast was with stewed apples, hazelnuts and walnuts:

re: Mouthwatering Boat Recipes (mainly plant based)

I go for a much simpler breakfast - grapefruit, shredded wheat with hot milk followed by a cup of green tea.

After that it is on to coffee for the working day....

What do you do when you run out of milk and it is weeks until you can purchase the next lot? The thought of shredded wheat with water or fruit juice just leaves me cold.

That is when toast replaces the cereal. I make my own wholemeal bread which has two advantages over the bought loaf

1) I find that pounding the dough is a great de-stress technique

2) I only make it every so often which stops me putting it all on my hips!

I like toast too much, especially with jam or marmalade so I only make the bread I need for certain dishes and when it is gone then it is gone. I get through the equivalent of about one loaf every couple of weeks.

salt and pepper to taste.

No BS this is one of the best recipes ever. It is one of those things I can just eat and eat and eat!
UNBUSTED BEN's BEANS

I tried this tonight with navy beans (I pressure cooked a mug this morning after soaking them overnight) and I used green peppers grown nearby. The taste wouldn't be much different (yellow is sweeter), but the colour would be improved had red & yellow been available. I think if food looks good it adds to the whole experience.

I tossed the beans in the oil and lemon while warm to marinade well, then added the rest before serving. Olives used were a handful of green ones left over from the pizza from a couple of nights ago (again, black would have looked better). Onion was red. Lemon to oil ratio used was 2:1. I added the grated rind of a lemon to further enhance the lemony flavour that really lifts this recipe. I sprinkled it with sesame seeds.

I must admit though that to get my bean-hating husband to enjoy it I had to puree it and make a dip of it LOL, although I loved it as it was.

You are right - it was very moreish . It also filled us up so much having it with pre-dinner drinks in the cockpit that we barely need any dinner now .

Thanks for sharing x. I am adding this one to my list of regulars.

I doubt this very much. You mean it's easier to raise a calf on feed for 2 years, slaughter it, cut it up, refigerate it and then sell it?

No rancher will keep a calf on feed for 2 years. Even long yearlings will get a penalty at market.
