There are lots of reasons that people say to me as to why they cannot increase their levels of plant-based meals. I wish that i had a £1 for every reason or excuse that i have heard. The most common one is that of time. I do not have the time to do all that cooking.

This meal was inspired by Dr McDougall (of the Starch Solution). http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6810.The_Mcdougall_Quick_and_Easy_Cookbook In one of his lectures he mentions a dish similar to one from my childhood, that I associate with both comfort and satiety. It’s quick, simple and cheap too – It’s Mash with gravy and veg. Last night i did a version of this as we were both tired and needed a quick solution.

Ok – so i had to peel a few potatoes (you could just wash them and leave the skins on), but i wanted trad mash!

You can just cook for 20 mins until soft and then mash and add some plant based milk and flavour with garlic, herbs, horseradish, mustard etc., and season with pepper and salt/hebamare. Last night, I made my cheese sauce https://bhoneycombe.wordpress.com/2013/07/05/non-diary-cheese-sauce-recipe/ and poured that over the potatoes and mashed them. YUM.

I served this with a tin of Braised Tofu http://www.hollandandbarrett.com/pages/product_detail.asp?pid=2636&prodid=3117 which i just microwaved and some steamed green beans, sprinkled with some of my fake Parmesan. https://bhoneycombe.wordpress.com/2013/07/01/fake-non-dairy-parmesan-cheese/

It was delicious, nutritious, quick & cheap!
