Vegan MoFo - September 4th - Not What I Was Planning

Well. Tonight's post was meant to be about cooking quick, tasty meals. I'd picked my recipes and everything. But some days you just need to eat junk so hey ho.

Instead, I'm going to talk to you about my sourdough starter. 

It's day three of the starter so time to check on it...

Looks good (I think)! Smells vile, which I guess is the idea. Hubby says it looks and smells like baby sick... Lovely. It does seem to fit the description in the book though so fingers crossed its going the right way! You can see that the starter has risen and fallen from the marks on the jar (black line is where it started originally) so there's definitely something going on in there!

I've discarded half the mixture and added an extra 100g flour and 100ml water, so now it needs to sit for another day or two and then I can hopefully get baking with it!

Apologies for the short post today - I didn't think you'd want to see a post about my take away curry...


  1. Good luck on the starter! I have some resources on my blog regarding sourdough if you are interested! (

  2. Ooh I've always thought about making some starter for my bread baking but I've just not gone to the trouble of doing so! I hope it turns out well for you! :)

    1. Well it's 'sourdough September' so maybe now is the time to start!

  3. I made a sourdough starter many years ago, and absolutely hated the bread it produced. Just nasty, tasted of vinegar! But with so many folk on veg-blogs talking about doing them right now, I'm slowly getting tempted to give it another go! Be interested to see how it works out for you :)
