Rice Dream anything. I'm sorry, but rice as a substitute for ANY milk or cream just does NOT work in my book. It's bitter, strange, and it separates itself from the water and other ingredients. There. I said it.



I like the Amy's Toast things, but they're way overpriced.



Also I'd like to edit this post to say I concur with Nykoelle on the tempeh, which I have a lot of trouble liking. It's pasty and it tastes like something gone bad. I am sure that there are ways of making it edible, but straight or stir-fried it is NOT my cup of tea.

I don't eat fake meats either because they remind me of the real thing...



bigg THANK-YOU for the Recipes...sure I am always willing to give it another try and appreciate the help

Tempeh. Tried it a bunch of ways, even had tempeh riblets. I LOVED the barbeque sauce, the tempeh was gross.



Marmite is also the most terrible thing ever. I offer it to friends to try when they come over, hoping someone will like it and take it. About 10ish people later, still no takers

Soy milk! I have tried only the vanilla flavor, but I hated it so much that I have never tried any flavor. In fact I had one sip and threw out the whole carton!

Freezing it is the key... it changes the texture a lot and somehow it's easier to press.



I've tried freezing it but not like that. I'll give it a go...

I bought the cheese pizza ones and really liked them, but they didn't cook evenly in my toaster. I had to microwave them first or the outside would be burned and the inside frozen

Aww... give it another try. Use it for cooking and baking... it's really an aquired taste. I got used to it by putting it on cereal... after 2 times, I loved it (original, not vanilla). Chocolate soy milk is good too.

Hope it works It all comes down to pressing it completely. To me, tofu tastes and smells like bad pumpkin (it's the only way I can describe it). I LOVE it in stir fry when saturated in teriyaki sauce. I recommend browning the tofu in a seperate pan than the veggies as the veggies release water. And if you hate it, you don't have to mix it with your stir fry veggies and rice... plus you only wastes about $1 on the tofu.

There's no point in me naming a brand because I'm in a different country to you, but there are some brands that don't separate and aren't bitter.



I brought quite a few before I found one that was good.

Marmite is indeed a love-hate thing when eaten on its own but I use it mainly in cooking. I'll add half a tsp to soups or stews and it really adds the depth of flavour missing from traditonal recipes. Its especially helpful when making seitan and reconstituting TVP.



I'll bet the people you say hate marmite actually eat a type of marmite all of the time. Look for 'yeast extract' on your favourite ready-made foods: thats marmite, and its used in all sorts of foods to add the flavour described above.

I was the same way with tempeh: I tried it a bunch of ways but it was always terrible. And then one day I went to a proper Indonesian restaurant where it was prepared in a traditional way and it was fantastic! I haven't been ablt to recreate that taste myself but I know its possible

I used to live in Indonesia and the tempeh was great!

Dried soya mince or chunks. However I try to disguise the taste it's still horrible, and I don't like the texture of it either.



I really dislike corriander (the green stuff), it tastes like it's been harvested out of a stagnant pond to me.



I didn't like tofu at first. However since I found that if you squeeze the excess water out of the firm stuff with kitchen paper, and put the softer stuff in sheets of kitchen paper with a weight on top till it becomes drier, then it is vastly improved. It's surprising how much water you can get out of it. Spread firm thinnish slices of it with harissa paste and fry in olive oil is a good way.



I like good hummous, the emphasis being on good. Some stuff calling itself hummous is not good, and it does vary quite a lot.

I'm with you.. I saw a "vegan chick'n curry salad" at Whole Foods and even though I really didn't want "fake meat" I decided to try it anyways.. I couldn't do it. It almost made me sick

Yes. Thumbs down to fake meat. Bought fake "pepperoni" for pizza night at my house, Tried one out of the package and it smelled like the "Pup-peroni" the dog eats. And even he didn't like this stuff.

Yes, bleaugh to fake meats.



Something that I could never tolerate in anything, ever, was bell peppers. I couldn't even stand the smell of a dish that had them in it. However for some reason about a year ago just out of the blue, I discovered their yumminess! Now I can eat them raw, on their own, roasted, any which way.

It's true. If you don't like the flavor of soymilk on its lonesome (it IS an acquired taste, if you ask me, though I like it), it will still would fabulously for baking and cooking- works just the same as cow milk and the flavor is not at all noticable. In soup, it seems to be even thicker than, say, skim milk.



And yes, chocolate soy milk is often worth trying once in a while because that can taste quite similar to the real thing.

And I don't like tofu either, which I guess makes me a weirdo or leper or something. Oh well.

OMG! I can't imagine not loving quinoa! You need to try it like this: Quinoa Vegetable Paella



ETA - Sorry, I just saw that you don't like *red* quinoa - not just regular quinoa! Woops, will read more thoroughly next time!

How have you had tofu prepared?



Tofu is like a potato: raw, its not very good. Boiled, its a bit plain, but if you know how to cook potatoes or tofu correctly it can be great.

from TO: fat-free nayonaise is SUPER gross

so nice yogurt is pretty bad

tofu dogs.. forget what brand but I really felt like hurling. Same way hot dogs always made me feel before going veg... I think its the processed protein on a bun thing that gets me.



here in spain..



oat flam-type dessert... sickly sweet

quinoa milk is unfortunately pretty gross. I say unfortunately cus i bought a ton. -_-'

(Great analogy, Mr. Falafel)



My question too - How have you had tofu prepared? AND What type of tofu?



I hated on tofu for years! Because I kept buying the silken stuff and trying to make it turn into crisp, golden-brown cubes like my favorite restaurant...



Now I know better. And I LOVE the stuff 'cause I know how to make it...



Even so, one of my kids won't touch the stuff while the other one loves it, you're in good company - and not a weirdo (though we may shun your tofu-hating-ness much like we would a leper.... KIDDING!).
