    Vegan Store Cupboard Challenge 25th Oct 11 at 9:27 PM
    I hope no-one minds but I decided to start this new thread as the store cupboard challenge seems quite weighted to the omnivore diet.....

    I have decided to stock my cupboards and want to make this last for as long as possible with as many different vegan meals as possible....I am hoping not to have to buy anything other than soya milk, fresh fruit and veg for the next six months!!

    I am starting on 1st November 2011 and will post here at least once a week to show what I have cooked!!

    Would love to have others along for the ride.....feel free to suggest, join in or question!!!

    Finishing off the seitan casserole I made the other day....hm seitan that was in the freezer chucked in a casserole dish with 3/4 bottle of leftover red wine (it wasn't paticularly nice wine so a good use for it! ) a couple of chopped potatoes, couple of chopped leeks, couple of cloves of garlic; frozen sweetcorn & peas plus some dried herbs and stock. Tasted lush and has done me and dh for dinner last night and lunch today. More to the point, not one thing was bought in to prepare it - all from storecupboards

    Posting here because I literally googled 'gram flour recipes' because for some reason we've been stockpiling the stuff!

    Thanks Squirrelgirl. I am doing Animal Care (actually off at the mo with flu, which isnt good as I have to part pay for the course). Then I have mocks as of the 22nd of the month, so need to be better for then.

    Your meals sound great. I haven'tbeen eating right or cooking properly (poor DD2 been left to her own devices). Looking foward to getting my appetite back, and finding the time to cook.
