Sources Of Protein?

105 posts in this topic

if you have a fan oven I would suggest cutting down time drastically otherwise it's like eating wood...I usually do them for ten minutes and they are good , most of the excessive fat gets shed but the moisture is still all there. Usually add to pasta sauce that I have been creating on the hob while they are doing their thing in the oven. mushroom and sausage stroganoff is popular in our house .

Thanks for that. Tried cooking them for 10 minutes exactly and they came out 100 x better.

I checked some Bistro chicken gravy and it didn't seem to have any actual meat in it (going by ingredient list). Would you veges use it?

The fan ovens, slightly over and it's all messed up. Tell me about it, the amount of times I've burnt the dinner lol.

There's a Bisto onion gravy too. The normal one doesn't seem to have any meat in it, I use the normal one as the ingredients don't say non veg. But it does have some E numbers if you are avoiding them. There's a vegetable one too.

Check out the ingredients of each one:

Bisto do a Veggie gravy which is 100% veggie , thing meat ones will have dodgy stuff for veggies in the flavourings

Unfortunately, I'll be sticking to my normal stuff. I can't be eating Quorn, even if it is now eggless.

I was looking for some wholewheat noodles for a healthy stir fry a few days ago, and I thought I'd struck gold, but it turns out they had egg in them. Why would they do that paagalpuna? Nobody puts egg in wholewheat pasta so why do it for noodles.

I don't like the taste of Quorn, going to have to masquerade it with lots of ingredients.

Here's your noodles, till te paise dedo, do you have your own bag or would like to buy one Sir?

These are not whole wheat but just tasty. Try these and you will get totally addicted. Stir fry some frozen vegs in oil first. Add some mixed herbs. (I have not tried tofu but you can as it is a high protein food) Prepare these noodles in another saucepan. Add the noodles to the cooked vegs. (to make it slightly unhealthy you can add chips - just fry and add to the mix. Reheat in a medium grill and you will get a crunchy meal if you like crunch. You may top with cheese and add in the grill - if you like cheese as it is a protein source too.

Bhenji, what's the deal with rice noodles? I understand they're made from white rice, so do rice noodles have the same downside to them as white rice? When I do eat rice, it's brown.

thing is these noodles are better than white rice because they are not as heavy in carb content per cooked volume and besides if you use in a stirfry you'd have way more veg so not get the spike so much due to fibre of plant matter. It's nice to have a change sometimes , I use them in high vitamin mineral density chinese veggie soups or as an add in to a stirfry and not a lot .

Yeah, it was the carbs aspect of white rice I was concerned about. Well I'll give these rice noodles a try and see how they feel to me. My first port of call will be those eggless wholewheat noodles from Sainsburys. Those would be lovely with a stir fry.

Had same issue bro. Came across these which are made from some Japanese root, they have zero carbs! Warning, they can be bland, and from my experience they work best when you go spicy with whatever you are making. Ingredients are -

Purified Water, Organic Konjac flour and Oat fibre (Juroat® flour)

For allergens, see ingredients in bold.

I used to get them when Holland & Barretts had their get one and get second for penny sales on. If you see that, jump on it and stock up on them, they have long shelf lives.

Awesome stuff, brother. I'm always up for making things spicy with ginger, chillies, etc, so that won't be an issue.

I've had a problem with carbs in non desi food since I turned 30 a couple of years back. It doesn't sit right with me at all. Even apparently okay stuff like wholewheat pasta and brown rice I can't eat too much of for some reason. Carbs in desi food, no problem, but English stuff? Nah, it congeals inside me whilst I'm eating, lol.

Thanks again.
