Vegan Mofo 2016 Day 13 Marmite Croissants
Today's prompt asks if an alien landed on your doorstep what would it eat? Seeing as it's an alien I wouldn't have a clue. It would also have to arrive around breakfast time to catch us in. With that in mind I would like to find out it's views on marmite. Would it be 'love it' or 'hate it'?
Hands up if you watch 'Eat Well for Less'. If you don't the basic premise of the programme is that two blokes who used to be green grocers spend a couple of weeks with a family and find ways for them to dramatically reduce their food bills. It's usually things like making takeaway style food at home for cheaper, having one meal instead of cooking four different ones for picky eaters and buying supermarket own brand goods instead of pricier brand leaders. They also always feature one item where they reckon it is worth paying MORE. This is usually something like sausages or bacon from a local butcher instead of a supermarket it. In our budget household our pay more item is Essential Yeast extract which although more expensive has less salt and much more B vits than Marmite.
Back to the alien. I think a croissant would be a good food as it wouldn't need cutlery and it tastes good either hot or cold. To prepare the croissants you simply unroll the tin (I use vegan friendly Jus Rol brand) and add a slick of yeast extract.
Once rolled I snuck some nuts in there by decorating the tops with flaked almonds.
PS - The picked onion and onion pots in the background are what we store garlic and ginger in.
