Yes you can you can also grill some onions and put them on a sandwich bread like a hoagie bun or with some melted vegan cheese.

So I opened the bottle of Marmite! I made sure my fiancé was there so we could share in this exciting experience together! (He wasn't nearly as excited as me lol but he was a good sport)

Anyway I was sort of underwhelmed. It did smell good - I haven't tried it yet! I just wanted to smell it! I thought when I opened the jar the whole house would smell or something haha - well I think I was exaggerating it in my mind.

I will try it one some toast and see.

And thanks for the recipe again, DefiantVegan - I am going to make those meatless balls!

Do you eat them with pasta/tomato sauce?

Actually I haven't I've bought some of those items but not all.

I guess I wan't to substitute the Wheat gluten not because of allergies but I figure so many peeps do best to substitute it.

I think it will be good with shepherd's pie yes. just a reminder it is very salty so hold out on the salt until you taste it.

the website that I found the meatball recipe is:

LMAO!

You're funny!

Holy cow that looks like a lot. Actually, upon reading it I guess it's not too bad. It is one of the most particular recipes I have ever seen... everything is so seperate! Have you made it before?

Thanks so much for that recipe!

Oh now I really want to open my jar of marmite. I have a feeling I will like it.

Do you think Marmite would be good added into a vegan Shepherd's pie mixture? What do you think?

I've tried Marmite and this is what my face looked like when I tried it. emoticon LOL

It's really not a thing here in the US from what I hear, but I will say that I have found a vegetarian meatless recipe that called for it and it's almost like the meatless meatballs from Trader Joe's.

the Prep time is long but I'll post it here so you can try it.

Delicious vegan meatballs (Makes 24 meatless meatballs)
TVP mixture
¾ cup of textured vegetable protein (TVP)
1/2 cup. prepared vegan beef-style broth
1 teaspoon Marmite
3 drops gravy browning (optional)
1/4 cup very finely chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced

Liquid mixture
½ vegan beef-style bouillon cube (or equivalent amount for 1 cup of water)
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper water as needed (see directions)


Dry mixture
2/3 cup wheat gluten
1/4 cup gram flour (besan, chickpea flour)
2 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast

Oil mixture
1-1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
1-1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
(or use 3 tablespoons vegetable oil)
1. Make the TVP mixture ahead of time, as it needs to cool completely. Stir the prepared beef-style bouillon, Marmite and optional gravy browning together in a medium-sized pot and bring to a boil. Turn off heat, add TVP and stir well. Cover and set aside for 15 minutes, then stir again and add onion and garlic. Set aside to cool completely. The mixture must be cold before adding the other ingredients.

2. Mix together the coconut oil and vegetable oil until you have a smooth paste. Set aside.

3. For the liquid mixture, put beef-style bouillon cube in a glass measuring cup. Add a couple tablespoons of boiling water, and mix until bouillon cube is dissolved. Add ketchup, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and pepper. Then add enough cold water to equal 165ml (2/3 cup). Set aside. Note that this must also be cold before adding to the other ingredients.

4. In a medium mixing bowl, combine wheat gluten, besan, breadcrumbs and nutritional yeast and stir well.
5. When TVP and liquid mixtures are cold, first add oil mixture to TVP and combine well. Then add the liquid mixture and stir again. Now add this to the gluten mixture and mix it until it is evenly combined.

6. Form into meatballs. I make 24 meatballs, each about 2.5cm (1 inch) in diameter.

7. Prepare your steamer insert by lining it with greased parchment paper so the meatballs don’t stick (you can just grease the steamer insert without using the parchment paper, but they will stick a bit). Place meatballs in steamer insert with about a 2cm (3/4″) gap between them. My steamer is not very big, and I have to do the meatballs in three batches.

8. Bring an inch of water to boil in the bottom of your steamer, then turn heat down to maintain water at a simmer. Steam meatballs for 10 minutes, then carefully turn them over and steam for another 10 minutes. Remove them to a parchment-lined tray to cool. The meatballs will have flattened slightly in the steamer. Once they have cooled for a few minutes, you can gently reform them back into balls. Steam the rest of the meatballs the same way. Check the water level periodically to ensure the pot doesn’t boil dry, and add more boiling water if necessary.

9. When the meatballs are finished steaming, bake them at 180c (350F) for 10 to 15 minutes.

Makes 24 meatless meatballs.


Enjoy!

I would just substitute the chicken with a very firm tofu, agave for the honey, and use a vegan Worcestershire.

I love love love Marmite! I put a layer of it on a warmed corn tortilla, top that with crunchy almond butter and a small banana. This is my favorite snack. It's good for a pre workout meal or easy breakfast. I also put it on small pieces of my husband's homemade bread (without the banana) OMG it's like yeast crack for me, I can't stop eating it LOL

I've never cooked with it though. I would be curious to see how you use it and like it in cooking.

Hi all - do any of you cook with Marmite/Vegemite?

I went ahead and bought a jar - with no idea in what to use it in.

I was thinking that if I were to make seitan steaks or something, I would add some Marmite instead of soy sauce (when boiling).

For those who don't know what Marmite/Vegemite is (they are very similar, apparently Vegemite is not as strong) yeast extract that is left over after making beer. It has an extremely strong taste/smell that is likened to "meaty".

Of course there are many downsides to Marmite, namely being it is ridiculously high in salt and that yeast extract is very similar to MSG, which I guess might have similar health concerns.

Does anyone ever use it? Know any recipes?

Other than seitan steaks I am thinking if making French Onion Soup with low-sodium veg broth it might be a good addition.

I haven't even opened it yet... I am excited to smell this infamous product. But I don't want to open it until I have a use for it.

Catch 22 I guess. Anyway thanks for the help!! :)
