I wasn't sure where to post this but food discussion seems appropriate! What are your 'comfort foods'? I love nothing more than a huge plate of chips (I think it is fries outside of the UK) sprinkled liberally with vinegar and salt and then the whole lot is smothered with baked beans or mushy peas. So come on, what do you all like to eat when you're not being healthy or just having 'one of those days' when you want to bury your end in a trough of gorgeous junk!?

Probably Bread. I can eat a whole loaf of good bread in one sitting.

Soups with wonderful artisan bread.

Peanut butter soup, baked potato soup (vegan), split pea, minestrone...they're all comforting to me.

Funny, I was just thinking about this, because I made (vegan) chick'n and dumplings last night, and then posted it in my blog as "comfort food" because it is definitely one of my all-time favorites...

I think good bread and soup are up there too. And mashed potatoes with gravy. :swoon:

Chili with lots and lots of beans, chickpeas, and as many veggies as I can cram into a pot.

Also, baked sweet potatoes.

Macaroni w/ tomatoes and lots of salt & pepper. Anytime my dad "babysat us" at night, he'd make that. <3

Also, homemade bread. I don't mean to brag, but my husband makes a MEAN loaf of vegan bread. {Yes, I realize I'm ultimately lucky.}

Buttery noodles cooked with potatoes (with carrots and cabbage if I have them). It's a variation on the chicken soup my mother used to make for me when I was omni.

Weetabix. Mash, peas and gravy (all mixed up together). Food Doctor Hi-Bran Bagels. Mushy things in a bowl. Mashed up stuff. Pots of baby food. Oh, the shame...

Mashed potatoes, chips (as in chunky fries), and a frozen vegan product that is basically breadcrumbed TVP stuff.

Chocolate. Any chocolate. I still don't want to avoid the stuff that says "MAY have traces of dairy". I love dark chocolate!!

Carmelized onions... dried fruit... unsweetened banana chips... pie... peanut butter sammiches... Tofurky deli slices... raw broccoli and carrots... Oh yes and a banana dipped in raw almond butter. *Mouth waters* Great breakfast. Totally.

Another vote for soups/bread w/earth balance on it...

Anything with a vegan cream sauce on it...

Gravy/bread w/earth balance on it...

-Homemade fries, vinegar, dressing (stuffing) &, gravy

-Macaroni and cheese--I'm absolutely in love with macaroni and cheese and would even have it for Christmas dinner if I could.

Macaroni and "cheese", Blackeyed peas with okra and rice. Veggie burgers, Served with fries with gravy, Sundaes, Banana splits, "cheese" cake. All those unhealthy things, Those are comfort foods for me. Well, Except for the discomfort of feeling like a fatty.

- French fries with ketchup that has tons of pepper mixed in

- Biscuits and gravy

- Pizza, no doubt!

- soyrizo cooked with fried potatoes and sometimes tofu. Mm..

- mashed potatoes and gravy!

- Potato soup

Hmm.. and CHEESE fries.. I haven't made those with soy cheese, so I haven't had them in awhile... Methinks I must pick up some vegan gourmet

Im pretty sick right now and wishing I could have some of the comfort food my mom used to make for me when I was at home

-orzo noodles cooked in veggie broth...made in such a ration as to have mostly noodles and just a teeny bit of broth, with black pepper....ahhh

-stuffing, which I haven't had in years

-couscous mixed up with sauteed onions, carrots, and celery

-a big pile of steamed kale with lemon juice and sea salt (WHY CAN'T I FIND KALE IN FRANCE????)

-smoothies, smoothies, smoothies. Partiularly light chocolate soy milk, bananas, and strawberries, possibly with some vegan protein powder. I wish I had a blender, or that they even HAD smoothies in this country


-cereal, which is the only thing I have out of all of the things above. How sad!

Pizza, French Fries, Chips, Good Crusty Bread and my favorite favorite which I've luckily been able to make satisfyingly vegan...

Fettuccini alfredo with red, yellow, and green peppers sliced thick and still kinda crisp. That always puts me in a good mood.

Chocolate - especially Keebler's "Grasshopper" cookies, which are basically just a plagiarism of the Girl Scout "Thin Mints".

Most weeks, chocolate cookies or candy are the only non-vegan food in my shopping cart, unless I'm buying Morningstar burgers that week. I'm heading in a generally vegan direction, but I'm just not there yet.

Pastas. Breads. Dried pineapple and chocolate chip cookies for the sweet tooth.

PB & J is my ultimate comfort food. I believe it alone has the ability to save the world. I love my PB & J!!

Besides that it would be mashed potato, peas and tomato ketchup all mixed up together.

I'm sensing a mashed potato and peas theme developing...
