Argh, it stole my post.
Basically, I used to eat meat, but didn't really know why. I didn't think it tasted amazing and it was a load of lives being stomped out for me to chew discontentedly on a slab of protein I wasn't even particularly enjoying. So I stopped. Now I am on a mission to prove that food can taste amazing without meat in it!!! Especially to my parents, who think I'm going to keel over and die from malnutrition!!!
My recipe for today (as I'm currently cooking it) is bread-and-butter pudding. Absurdly easy.
You will need:
Two large eggs.
300ml semi-skimmed milk.
Six to eight slices of stale bread.
Raisins/sultanas/mixed fruit. (Some people use chocolate chips which is quite nice.)
Enough butter to spread on your bread.
Four large spoonfuls of sugar/honey.
Spread the slices of bread with butter, and cut into large pieces. The cutting can be fairly rough - don't be an artist about it!
Arrange a layer of bread in a large casserole/baking dish so that the bottom is completely covered, and sprinkle with raisins.
Repeat this step until you've run out of bread.
Whisk the eggs, and spoon the sugar in. Pour the milk over the eggs, and whisk again until you have a frothy yellow custard.
Pour the custard over the bread, then squash the bread down until all of it is coated in custard.
Pop in the oven at Gas Mark 4 for about thirty minutes, or until golden brown.
