I like the taste of most of the vegetarian patties I’ve had, but I’ve also had allergic reactions to them as well. So I don’t mess around with them, myself.

The sole exception would be what I do with large portobello caps. Those, I occasionally bake with a bit of butter or EVOO and seasonings, and use them as a substitute for hamburger patties. They work pretty well. You can dress them up exa the same way you would a burger.

I do remember some company mixing their ground meat with ground portobello for a “healthier” burger experience before the “Impossible” brand and others blew up.

I would rather just eat a vegetarian pattie than an impossible burger pretending to be meat. Aren't they loaded with salt?

Bought a spuce pumpkin based burger patties and some kumara rostis. Both were great taste wise.

We have a few tins of chick peas to eat. They're not to bad roasted in the air fryer.

Hummus is alright, but I prefer a baba ganoush to most hummus variants.

A Turkish place near me makes the best I’ve found. They do theirs with a stronger than usual smokiness.

Hmmmmm…have you ever smoked your hummus?

You can buy smoked hummus off the shelf here. Best baba ganoush was that Syrian place that shut down so so good. It was our favorite starter.

Donuts rare here but every cafe does a scone/biscuit pretty much. Deluxe Scone that was a freebie at our local place.

It's been sexed up a bit usually they're just a cheese scone. It's also our favorite place for a cheese roll.

Heard that you don't get black currents in USA that much as they were banned for decades. We can get cranberry juice but Ribena is a go to

Welllll…it’s complicated.

Be that as it may, that looks tasty!

I know they're legal now just guessing they're not common. That juice was very tart makes cranberry juice taste like fanta. Was hoping for Ribena which is British but it's here. That's the sweet one.

Anathoth Farm Blackcurrant Jam - made in New Zealand

Favourite jam brand but haven't tried that flavour. Cupboard has boysenberry.

I think that jam is made by the juice company.

Peri Peri chicken burger with a spiced pumpkin pattie and chargrilled capsicum hummus salad. In a brioche bun with smoked cheddar.

Left over salad and chicken on the side. Chicken was marinaded in garlic, bbq sauce and Peri Peri Chilli powder.

Damn good if I do say so. Wife loved her one.

I’ve only had peri peri once or twice. Liked it.

But it hasn’t really taken off here, really, and those I tried it with were not fans.
There's a chain--Nando's--that I at least see around here, that does pretty well (or it did, in the Before Times ...) and I see recipes callng for Berbere (the same thing) more than once in a while.

My wife and I like it, too, though neither of us is really a hothead.

Bit if a fail the other night. Concentrated sobhard on the garnish forgot to put the chicken on derp.

Going camping tomorrow so thought I would try this fella.


He is doing a Syrian food truck. Tried a chicken saj with shatta sauce and za'atar iirc. A say is essentially a wrap but what he did with it was magic.

His falafel was beautiful. Light fluffy and crispy. Bought 12 if them to share at family meeting tonight.

We have nandos here. Only had it once it was ok. Main problem being there's just better options for that sort of thing eg most Turkish kebab places, a few Indian type places.
