View Full Version : Your weird favourite...

I think everyone has one crazy food they like.

For example, I mentioned to someone yesterday that i wished I could find tofutti's Better Than Cream Cheese so that I could enjoy pickle and cream cheese sandwiches again. My friend had never heard of a pickle and cream cheese sandwich, and he thought it sounded really weird (But to me it sounds perfectly normal and delicious!)

My other weird thing is that I like leftover spahgetti, fried up and served between slices of bread (or toasted bread). I've dubbed it the Carbohydrate Overload Sandwich. Mmmmm...

I probably have a lot of others I haven't mentioned here, simply because, like the cream cheese and pickle sandwich, they seem absolutely normal to me.

Anyhoo, tell me what your weird food is.

(I know at least one of you eats peanut butter and mustard on lettuce!!)

Cream Cheese and Olives all the waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! My mom used to make that for me for lunch sometimes when I was in gradeschool. But because the sandwich looked so thin, she'd give me one and a half sandwiches. So not only was it my favorite sandwich, but it came in a larger portion than all my other sandwiches. But alas I am Vegan now.

So what's the weird stuff that I eat now?

I made Peanut Butter Oatmeal yesterday, not recomended. :sick:

I've eaten pretzels w/mustard too. I suppose the weirdest thing I eat are homemade dog treats I make for my canine (peanut butter treats). I even have a bone-shaped cutter I use, and I freaked some people out at work when caught eating them.

the peanut butter my co-op gets does not have any salt added. So, people here have been known to add peanut butter to apple slices, and then put salt on it. I've gotten weird looks, but it makes sense!

OK, I'll go try to think of something more interesting.

I love potato chips dipped in any kind of chunky ice cream. Mmmmmmmmmm. My husband looks at me like I'm nuts when I do it - but it's rare since we rarely buy chips.

My husband always eats his pretzels with mustard - says it's a German thing. We must have nine different types of mustard in the fridge - another German thing.

i'm with Emiloid on the pb-on-a-spoon train, that's for sure. i always do it in secret, though. it seems so naughty.

i can't think of weird things that i like! i'm sure i have them. pb & banana sandwiches, like jenzie (although i have never tried them toasted!)... but are those really weird? hee. i grew up eating them so they seem so normal to me.

i'm just going to steal one of my husband's things that i think is weird: he likes to cut red grapes in half and drop them in his cereal.

When I was a kid, it was peanut butter and mustard sandwiches. No, I'm not kidding.

You know what else is good? Fried veggies dipped in Vegenaise (preferably Vegenaise with some nutritional yeast flakes, garlic, and whatever herbs and spices I'm craving mixed in).

02-12-2005, 03:04 AM
Weird is so subjective. :p

I love baby carrots dipped in raw almond butter...one of my favorite on-the-road foods.
I make raw cookies out of slices of crisp garnet yam with raw almond butter and either miso or maple syrup.
Fresh strawberries with whole cashews stuffed inside, and sometimes a bit of date stuffed in there too.
I also like sprinkling large quantities of raw carob powder on my bowl of Nature's Path Millet Rice cereal, along with the raisins, banana, and soy milk.
A couple of my long time past favorites were PB and raisin sandwiches (now I use almond butter), and spagetti with baked beans and raisins.

May peace and joy be with you, and your tummy.

Kat
02-12-2005, 11:06 AM
Yeah, I was really looking forward to your reply, Vegit 8 :D
I figured you'd have a few "weird" favourites (but your food always sounds so interesting that I want to try it)

One thing I've noticed about this thread is this; so far no one has mentioned "Oh, I eat texturized vegetable protein...I put nutritional yeast flakes on everything....I love cold tofu mashed with peanut sauce..."

On an omni board, that might seem weird. But among vegans, hardly anyone bats an eye.

Ah well.

P.S. Nutritional yeast flakes ARE good on everything :D

Vegit-8
02-12-2005, 11:57 AM
Oh Yeah Kat....nutritional yeast rocks on just about every savory dish I can think of.
You are right about how what most of us here must seem to have 'weird' eating habits compared to just about everyone else out there.:)

And yes, I love cold tofu mashed with peanut (almond) sauce - spread on sprouted grain tortillas with shredded carrots, chopped red peppers, some sprouts or lettuce, and liberally sprinkled with nutritional yeast etc. :D

May peace and joy be with you.

I generally like to keep frozen red grapes around. I never thought that weird, but new roommates usually ask if I accidentally put the grapes in the freezer. :)

On the topic of nutritional yeast...

A couple of days ago, I was seated at my desk feeding myself with a bagel dipped in nutritional yeast (and frantically shoved toward my mouth in an attempt to ingest before the nutritional yeast could have much opportunity to fall off--admittedly unusual). The half-eaten bagel in a shallow bowl of nutritional yeast quite confused a later visiting friend. :)

Another peanut butter straight from the jar person here.

Grilled peanut butter and jam sandwiches.

Half a grapefruit (white) sprinkled with salt.

Chips (french fries) dipped in salad dressing.

Salt on nearly everything.

Vanilla soy ice cream with peanut butter, raspberry jam, and choco newman o's will give you wicked dreams.

Best I've got is bachelor chow.

I'll cook up a pot of beans, black eyed peas, lima beans ... Then usually some veggies, peas and carrots, green beans ... mix it all with some rice and there's a good dozen servings or more of something you can scoop in a bowl, pop in the microwave, and chow down on with maximum convenience.

Hmmmm...

Heavily salted toast and V8.

Hummus spooned straight from the tub.

Salsa with fresh avocado and sour supreme mixed in... but that's not weird, that's just flippin' tasty.

I am in the south so there's grits, boiled peanuts, hush puppies, (again, flippin' tasty).

I guess I'm the only normal one here. :)

02-18-2005, 11:17 AM

When I get sweet cravings, I toast some whole grain bread and eat it with PB and all-fruit jam (strawberry is the BEST) or just put chocolate chips all over it. *drool*

I also eat bananas and apples like they are crack... seriously, like 2 each a day. I think I may be addicted. Also, I eat straight steamed broccoli with TONS of minced garlic on it... huge bowls of the stuff. People look at me like I'm crazy, but it's so good. I guess there are worse things to be addicted to! :)

- Granny Smith apples dipped in salt.

- Pretzels dipped in peanut butter.

- Tofutti Cuties dipped in Smucker's Marshmallow Topping.

- Sometimes I'll add potato chips to a sandwich.

- I like to eat black olives right out of the can and usually polish off the whole can in one sitting.

I can't really think of anything else... and none of the above is really that weird.

hi this is my first post here. ^__^
without further ado, my weird food thingies are:

cayenne and chocolate, though the cayenne is usually thrown in something like a chcolate cake or a brownie.
and corn flake type cereal and vanilla soy ice cream.

i actually am starting to have a really big fascination with aztec style food and i'm going to attempt making my cayenne brownies again but for the 'faux egg' i am considering using avacado mixed with veganaise so they'll be green red brownies. it'll either go over really well or we just wont talk about recipe disasters here...

Yep! It's at all the regular grocery stores with the other ice cream toppings.

Here's the website (http://www.smuckers.com/fg/ict/default.asp?groupid=4&catid=48&prodid=91). The potassium sorbate is not animal derived.

Makes really yummy rice krispie treats, too. :happy:

For the record, I don't think these "weird" things are weird:
Pretzels in peanut butter
Hummus spooned straight from the tub.
Salsa with fresh avocado and sour supreme mixed in
French fries in dressing
Grilled PBJ
Black olives straight from the can (all Italian kids, like myself, ate these like candy... hehe)

All these things sound delicious and perfectly normal!!! :)

Before I was vegan, one of my favorites was toasted peanut butter and cheese sandwiches, I also loved vanilla ice cream with grilled chicken when I was pregnant (even other pregnant women thought I was disgusting).

My boyfriend has a thing for original nacho cheese doritos and peanut butter.

Jenzie, thats my favorite too! Yum, so salty and sweet...

I also almost always dip my fries in mustard, instead of ketchup.

And you know that seasoning called "Lucas"? Its basically a lemon-lime salt powder. Sometimes I eat it straight...

In the UK, so will probably sound even more weird. A tin of Tesco Value brand mushy peas (fluorescent green - around 12p), in a bowl with a small packet of ready salted crisps (potato chips) crushed on top; finished with a large dollop of Plamil egg-free mayonnaise.

Eat warm or cold - yummy.

(vegan) butter and sugar sandwhich, mmm.

I've yet to find a replacement for a vegetarian favorite of mine... american cheese and miracle whip on a bun. I tried it with vegannaise and tofutti american slices, but it was really gross. Is there a better way to obtain a likeness of the cheese and miracle whip sandwhich? Suggestions appreciated :)

campbell's tomato soup, with ramen noodles, or corn. Koolaid mixed with sugar, eaten straight. hard pretzels dipped in straight up butter. I used to buy red vines, and a hershey bar, split the individual red vines up the side, and break up hershey bars inside, so it was like a long red vine and chocolate taco. Um, I haven't done that since I was a teenager. *eyes shifting*

Tofutti cream cheese is pretty good, i use it quite a bit now that i'm vegan.
What i used to LOVE before i went veg was when you'd spread regular cream cheese on a flour tortilla, top it with ham lunch meat, and roll it up around a pickle. You're sposed to slice it then and serve it as appetizers but i'd pretty much eat the whole thing....
A good way to put tofutti cream cheese to work is to spread it over a flavored tortilla (sundried tomato or garlic spinach is really yumm), add nutritional yeast, diced peanuts and dill, microwave for 30 seconds and roll up around a bunch of fresh spinach. Muy delicioso.

According to my family, everything I eat is weird. I can take perfectly "normal" chocolate chips, call them vegan, and NO ONE in my entire family will touch those chocolate chips (not even my dad, who has a bad habit of snacking on chocolate chips).

Ahem . . . peanut butter and onion sandwiches . . . apples and vinegar . . . rum and coke . . . wait, that last one was fairly normal. ;)

bluemango
09-12-2005, 12:43 PM
Well, none of those are *really* weird. Apples and vinegar sounds good, when you consider they make apple cider vinegar (which makes for great dressings and cooking). And maybe I'm weird, but peanut butter and onions sounds pretty good... almost Thai-ish. :)

Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches.

My mom used to make these for me when I was little because I didn't like cheese. Actually, when I got older, I realized that it was that I didn't like cold, straight-out-of-the-fridge slices of American cheese food from the plastic wrapper. Disgusting. In any case, she'd make me that when we had grilled cheese for lunch (made the same way as grilled cheese is with "butter").

You can make it without "butter" just in a toaster oven. Nuuuummmmmy!!!! Melted peanut butter and jelly saaaaammmmiches!

I've always been that way; I took a mustard sandwich to school for lunch every singe day in kindergarten and half of first grade (up until my mom put her foot down and started insisting on sticking a couple of slices of cheese in there).

These days...I don't know. Most people would consider pretty much everything I eat weird. And it's not even just the vegan thing. I'm just weird. :p

I can't think of any weird combinations these days though. I have always wanted to try chip butty.

Do any of the British vegans have tips on how to make a good vegan chip butty (or even advice on whether such a thing is worth the effort?).

Raw bacon sounds like a recipe for food poisoning. Was it regular bacon or peameal?

I went to a carribean festival once and a booth was selling peameal bacon slices for like three bucks. So I ordered one and was presented with a slab of raw meat. Turns out you actually had to pay another two dollars to get it grilled and thrown on a bun. WTF?

A wise man once said: "Earth Balance isn't a butter replacer. It's a butter upgrade."

Therefore a vegan chip butty = a chip butty upgrade.


I like vegenaise on my chips (what you 'mericans refer to as "Freedom Fries").

Is that a weird thing? My parents are from Holland.

:laugh: regular... what's peameal? in a town near me there's a restaurant where they give you a chunk of some sort of volcanic rock, a raw steak and little dishes of sauces and you cook it yourself the way you want it. feral, but still... could be done nicely with tofu, perhaps.

i used to put butter + mayo on everything. my mum and my grandma eat raw potatoe all the time :sick: i think it's an irish thing

A wise man once said: "Earth Balance isn't a butter replacer. It's a butter upgrade."

Therefore a vegan chip butty = a chip butty upgrade.


:laugh:

I salute you! :kiss:



I like vegenaise on my chips (what you 'mericans refer to as "Freedom Fries").

Is that a weird thing? My parents are from Holland.

Oh, pulp fiction style, huh? Do you get it with a "Royale with cheese?"

:laugh: regular... what's peameal?

Regular bacon comes from the underside of the animal, and peameal bacon comes from it's back. It's cut much thicker and is usually coated in peameal or cornmeal. It's also called back bacon or Canadian bacon.

I used to dip my Freedom Fries in chocolate shakes/Wendy's Frostys. I haven't tried it with a vegan chocolate shake cause I can never find any soy based non dairy frozen desert 'round here.

At my old favorite restaurant I always used to order a Heineken and a chocolate shake, in separate glasses. The waitresses always looked at me funny. They go together better than you'd think.

It's funny to see how many of our weird combos include PB. I used to eat PB and pickle or lettuce on crackers, and had PB, lettuce and whole-wheat tortilla wraps all this past summer for breakfast.

My weirdest favorite though is pancakes with corn niblets. I add them to the batter before it hits the griddle. :)

I don't find this particularly weird, but whenever I visit spacehippy, I generally end up making the same thing.

I top a banana with peanut butter, then stick chocolate chips on top...
microwave it to melt the chocolate and make the banana all smooshy and delicious... and then sometimes I finish with a dollop of of WholeSoy plain yogurt on top. Mmmm.

My dad/sister does the pretzels and mustard thing. But that's because we are of German descent.

In my case:
baked beans and toast, I think it's actually an English thing that I started doing a few years ago.
Slice of bread, w/pb and molasses on it. Although that might not be weird, just grew up with that. My mom would eat it for breakfast, so I'd do the same, or I'd eat it as a snack when I wanted something sugary.
Another peanut butter on a spoon person here. I used to very rarely eat icing from the can, too.:p Huge sugar rush.
I also dipped my fries in Wendy's frosties. That was so good, haven't done it since becoming vegan though. I'll have to try it again, make my own "Frosty."
I also grew up eating spaghetti sandwiches. Made with garlic bread, it just made eating dinner faster and more fun.
Either regular or BBQ chips dipped in ice cream, now w/vegan versions.
Mashed potatoes or french fries w/BBQ sauce.
I think it was last week I was eating baby carrots and pickles at the same time. It was good, the pickles were saltier than usual and having the carrot toned it down a bit.

That's all I can think of right now, but that is quite a few as it is.:D

yum VEK, that would be good with some banana.

btw, I recently did some research on the ORAC rating for foods. That's Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity, a factor of the anti-oxidant component of foods. I hope none of you have fallen for goji berries or mangosteen Xango juice or noni juice. The highest rating for antioxidants goes to dark chocolate. High ratings also go to red tea, green tea, blueberries, esp. dried blueberries and prunes.

So I guess if you often snacked on chocolate covered blueberries and wash them down with some red tea, you can live forever.
