Vegan Mofo #7: Marrow

So I’ve had this gigantic marrow sitting in my fridge over the last week. I’ve been avoiding it because I’ve heard a lot of horror stories about this vegetable. Plus, how can you trust a vegetable this effing huge?

I was looking up recipes and asking around for tips whilst I was putting it off. Apparently it’s best to just stuff the hell out of it. So that’s exactly what I did. I sliced it up, put it in a baking tray and then smothered it with a bolognese sauce, topped with vegan cheese and baked it for ages.

I can’t say I was overly impressed. My mince sauce was nice, but the marrow? The skin was still hard and horrible and the inside was pretty tasteless. I wasn’t gagging on it, or spitting it out but it was all just a bit bleh.

Which is why I’m not going to post a proper recipe tonight, but if you wanna bake a marrow, just do what I described above and see if you like it.

And if any of you guys have a decent marrow recipe PLEASE let me have it. I barely made a dent in this beast, I have a shitload of it left to eat and I’m not feeling excited about it. At all.

Fuck you marrow.

  1. I ate stuffed marrow once as a kid and was really violently ill afterwards so I've always avoided it. Someone I used to work with who had an allotment once insisted I take one and I managed to use it up making marrow jam from an old English recipe that was actually pretty tasty and really easy to do. I've not still got the recipes but there seems to be plenty knocking around the internet most with ginger added.
