another storecupboard wonder inspired by Laurel’s kitchen. This is tamale pie. OK its not a tamale but is made with cornmeal top and bottom, sandwiching a butter bean, tomato, pepper and sweetcorn mix. And its topped with a little cheese

Tomato Smoothie (Vitamix)

Tomato Smoothie (Vitamix)

2 Tomatoes
2 Apples
2 Carrots
4 Celery Stalks
1 Dash Tobasco/Hot Sauce
1 cup water

I added parsley as well. Blend until smooth. I think this would also make a good soup if blended until hot.

Stout Chili

Stout Chili

Most beers, even hoppy beers, can be used in chili, to different effect. But a strong stout, such as many ‘craft’ beer stouts, contributes a unique layer of complexity to this flavorful vegetarian chili – akin to the chocolate-roastiness of a mole poblano.

[I originally posted this recipe to my personal website in the early 2000s. It’s good today.]

1 block tofu (not silken)
6-8 oz stout*
15.5 oz can Italian-style tomatoes
15.5 oz can cooked black beans
15.5 oz can cooked corn
1 large onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 TBS. soy sauce
1 TBS. virgin olive oil
2 TBS. chili powder*
1 TBS. cumin
1 TBS. coriander
1 TBS. dried oregano
1 tsp. fresh black pepper
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional: if you wnat more ‘heat’)
1/8 cup TVP*
½ tsp. Marmite*

1. Beforehand, prepare the tofu for a more ‘meat-like’ texture.
a) Press the block until all water is expelled.
b) Freeze overnight
c) Thaw.
d) Crumble into small, ‘ground-beef’ pieces and toss with the soy sauce until thoroughly coated. Set aside.

2. In a large pan, sauté the onions in the olive oil over medium heat until slightly browned. Reduce heat, and sauté the garlic until fragrant. Add green pepper, and sauté for 1 minute.

3. Add tomatoes and all spices. Stir well. Add crumbled tofu and thoroughly coat with mixture. Add beer slowly. Mix in beans, TVP, and corn. Stir well.

4. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour.

5. Remove from heat. Refrigerate overnight. Gently reheat portions to be served.


1) Guinness Stout is really too mild a beer to get much flavor into the stew. Instead, use a ‘craft’ or ‘artisinal’ stout, such as Victory Storm King, Brooklyn Black Chocolate, Anchor Porter, Heavy Seas Peg Leg Stout. Use half of the bottle. Reserve the other half for the chef.

2) Marmite is the brand name for a popular British spread made from dried yeast extract. A by-product of the beer brewing process, it is generically known as autolyzed yeast extract and can often be found as an ingredient in dried soup mixes and other prepared foods. It imparts a meaty/savory flavor.

3) TVP, or textured soy protein, is often used in vegetarian cooking to add a chewy texture. It’s made from defatted soy flour, and is high in protein.

4) I often omit the chili powder and use in its stead 4-6 dried whole red New Mexico peppers.
a) Toast the chiles until they’re pliable (don’t burn them!).
b) Remove from the heat and cut the stems off with scissors. c) Shake out the seeds and use the scissors to pull out the ribs.
d) Cut into 1-inch pieces and add into the pot.
