tabasco popcorn


Pop the popcorn on the stove. Add salt. Melt margarine (or butter if you can have dairy) and Tabasco together and pour over. Husband will hand you a box of tissues because he thinks you might get goopy hands, but actually said tissues will be used for copious tears at the ending of The Return of the King film.

vegan tofu raisin banana bars


Great portable snacks for a train trip!

I got this recipe from, but of course I changed it a bit. Here's my version.

You'll need:

  • 2 cups oats
  • 300 g soft tofu
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon powdered ginger
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoon mixed nut butter
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Do this:

In the food processor, blitz one cup of oats into powder. 

In a big mixing bowl, mash the bananas and tofu together, then add the rest of the ingredients except for the walnuts and stir well. Pour into an 8X8 inch/20X20 cm baking pan lined with a piece of baking paper. Toss the walnuts on top and mash into the batter a little bit. 

Bake at 180C for 20 minutes. Cool down, cut, and then cut your teeth on these guys. We all love them.
