Does anyone have any lunch suggestions? My normal lunch has been making me sick for a while, but I don't really know what to switch to. Ideally something easy. Bonus points if I can pre-prepare it and it is gluten free but not a requirement. I typically have cereal if I eat breakfast and soup for dinner. So don't think I should have soup for two meals a day lol.

I doubt I'll be much help here! I have hummus or jam sandwiches. But what about maybe an easy pasta with sauce that you could batch cook and use gluten free pasta if you wanted?

In Jenna news, I finally tried the dominoes vegan pizza - yummy!

Rereading this is triggering me since bourneville is no longer vegan. Might post report myself.

How was the pizza?

I did try making a vegan mac n cheese. I didn't use gf pasta just because I was unsure how it was going to turn out. It's not bad but it was pretty expensive to get that amount of vegan cheese. Another friend suggested rice with beans and veggies so I might try doing that instead since rice and veggies and beans are all pretty cheap.

Pizza was 10/10.

Yeah, vegan cheese is pricey! I don't know how this would compare price-wise but I make a macaroni cheese (recipe courtesy of Lio!) that uses cashews and nutritional yeast to create the cheesiness, with some optional vegan cheese melted on top, if you'd like the recipe?

Would like to add that Jenna refined the recipe - I just went ‘whack these things in in quantities you deem appropriate’, which actually seemed to upset her quite a bit.

Also tried Lindts new vegan chocolate bar this morning (saw Lindt, assumed lindor, was mildly disappointed) and it was ok! Hazelnut, sorry Jenna.

I don't have a blender - I've seen the recipes with cashews too but tbh cashews are also v expensive.

I think alternating between the rice with beans and veggies and the mac and cheese will be what I do. I like both okay and then I can save my soups for dinner.

Do you like nutritional yeast? Plus a certain RYLer introduced me to asefoetida which is also excellent for cheesy flavour. If you wanted to cut down on the cost of the mac and cheese you can make a white sauce (roux with butter and flour and milk (or milk and water)) and add as much cheese as your budget will allow and either some nutritional yeast or some asefoetida. It works OK!

I do use nutritional yeast in many dishes and already do in my mac and cheese! Mine was basically: Cook pasta with water, vegetable bullion, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper in instant pot. Stir in vegan butter, milk, and cheese. Finished.

Oh OK :) If you thicken the sauce with a roux it might require less cheese either way, if that's still a concern.

Yeah, I figured that might be limiting! I use 150g for 6 servings, if that's any use to work out if it's worth having a go.

The. Hell. Is. That.
Also is the 'certain RYLer' someone who was once part of an awesome DIY trio with us?

What is roux? It was extremely thick. I had to add a lot of almond milk to it, and that was even without draining the water from cooking the pasta.

Do you need me to crack out lmgtfy again?
It's like a garlicky cheesy condiment? spice? that you get in the herbs and spices section of a supermarket. I'd wanted to try it but was too scared until Said RYLer and their partner fed me some REALLY GOOD macaroni cheese made with it.

Not telling you unless you allow the DIY project to be completed.

It's when you heat butter or oil and add flour. It thickens milky sauces :) just means you need less cheese to thicken it, but doesn't sound like that was a problem!

I had to add like 3 cups of almond milk. Definitely do not think it required being more thick lol!

Controversial opinion: I don't like them o_O I'm glad you managed to get some and that they weren't disappointing for you though!

Yeah but you knew you wouldn't because the chocolate is hazelnut based, so your opinion is officially disregarded

Oh is that why I didn’t like it! If I knew that already, I’d forgotten and I didn’t think it tasted badly of hazelnuts, but that does indeed explain it.

I ate an Asda mini fake Colin the caterpillar yesterday!!! Considering it’s gluten-free too, I’d say it’s pretty decent.

Yeah, we had a whole conversation when they came out - you read the ingredients and told me you wouldn't like them...

I'm so excited for my next Asda order!
