Vegan MoFo: Marmite is England’s gift to the world »
For today’s Vegan MoFo entry, I want to tell you guys about Marmite, the jarred food of gods. It is like MSG, but good for you, all full of B vitamins and salty, umami punch. I adore it. Seeing photos of it makes me immediately hungry.
Two Decembers ago I made the Great Vegan Conspiracy’s tattie scones with Marmite, but I’m not sure I properly stressed just how crucial Marmite is to both that recipe and my entire life.
Add Marmite to your grains-cooking water for superior flavor and health. Put it on toast with vegan butter for a savory snack. Eat it off knifepoint directly from the jar for pure, unadulterated yeasty deliciousness. You can’t go wrong, unless you don’t like it, in which case, out of my kitchen.
Tattie scones with Marmite! Get the recipe from the Great Vegan Conspiracy and make them tout de suite! It is so, so cold outside and these little bastards will warm you right up. I didn’t have quite enough potatoes, so I added a couple of parsnips, and they were just a little sweet as well as salty and crispy and soft and hot.
If you don’t smother them in Marmite, you’re missing out.
