I had some quorn sausages the other day and they were Shite. Not gonna judge all vegan foods on those though, what's the best vegan food I can grab to try
The best vegan food is food that just happens to be vegan rather than something designed to try and be something it is not. I made a curry yesterday...chickpeas, aubergine, potatoes, carrots, a little courgette, and you just use vegetable stock (come to think of it, I used chicken stock yesterday as that's what we had :lol:) and onion, garlic, toasted spices (cumin seeds, coriander seeds, mustard seeds) ground up, then powdered spices (turmeric, garam masala, fenugreek, garlic, cumin) and slow cook it, add coconut milk or tinned tomatoes (depending on if you want a creamy curry or a tomato based one).

That's healthy as fuck, lots of flavour but no attempt to pretend it's tandoori chicken.

I have heard that the Impossible burger is a very good impersonation of a burger, but we don't have it here yet, and the one that is here is the Beyond Meat...not tried it, but it is not supposed to be as convincing.

Quorn is gash for things like sausages, but works fine as a mince in something like a bolognese or chilli where lots of other flavours are present and the "meat" is not the main focus.

Why?

Good job he's the GOAT driver then anyway
I've no interest in F1 any more, man. It was when people like him came into it it lost its appeal to me. Stuck up little prick with zero charisma. It's also basically a glorified robot wars now, tbh.

As for him being GOAT...nah...put the worst driver on the grid in the best car and he will win. Put the best driver in the worst car and he'll come in last. Simple as that. Robot wars.

Lewis and Novak etc are just producers...they get one mention each and that’s it.

Aside from his fashion sense and race baiting lewis is a cool lad. Always happy to wear the flag

He is a bit of a bellend...agree about that, but you're wrong about the rest. It was still hugely about the car back in the 80's and 90's, which is why Ferrari won with Prost, Schumacher etc. They didn't just have great drivers, they had a great car. The worst driver in the Mercedes would have no chance of winning. Last year, Ferrari overall had the best car...it was close, but there's was the best overall and Hamilton won. Vettel has been outperformed by Leclerc this year.

But for sure, it's a weakness of the sport. It's never truly driver vs driver other than the two guys driving for the same team.

F1 has never and never been just about the drivers.

It was originally a showcase for the big manufacturers and innovation thrived. I like that about the sport.

As for Hamilton as driver. An all time great driver, driver of his generation. But , yeah, a bit of a bellend.

Aye, agreed, although I didn't know the bit about it being originally a showcase for manufacturers, but that makes perfect sense come to think of it. Where else would the funding come from?

Where would you rank Hamilton now? It seems impossible to have him outside the top 3 really, especially when you consider that the only reason he didn't win the year Rosberg won is because he had 4 engine fuck ups in the season, and Rosberg had none. Even with the 3 other issues, if his engine had not blown at Malaysia, as he was cruising to victory, he'd still have won the title.

Then you have the pole record, second on race wins (only 8 behind Schumacher), second on most consecutive seasons with a GP win (2 behind Schumacher), joint second on total fastest laps, second on total podium finishes (5 behind Schumacher), third on races finished in the points (1 behind Raikkonen, 10 behind Schumacher) and then he fares even better than Schumacher on percentage wins etc.

By the end of the season, you'd imagine that he will be second on races finished in the points, and by the end of next season you would imagine that he will be top in terms of podium finishes, possibly race wins too.

I've had him easily in the top 5 ever, for about 5 years now. I've said it on here before, hes one of the greats. Some of the stats I totally discount when talking about drivers from different eras, it's all about the eye test for me with hamilton. He is a quick qualifier, he is an aggressive racer naturally, he has matured to a point where he also manages the car extremely well and he always gets the job done.

'I don't like eating animals, particularly evil things like burgers and sausages.

'So I shall buy and eat plant products that look and taste like burgers and sausages.'

Those kind of veggies are funny fuckers.

Why?

Some people enjoy meat but don't want to kill animals purely for their own pleasure. So if they can have a kind of equivalent without the slaughter, what's the problem?
