    I went in 5 guys once, like log said way too expensive and nothing special, so won't be going back. Hubbox for me is far better.

    I bloody LOVE Five Guys, me. When I saw they'd opened a branch in Exeter Madam was very enthused about doing her school shoe shopping in God's Own City while we were staying at my Mum's in Dorset.

    I was going to give the tofu another go until I saw cheeky chappie Jamie Oliver blathering on about it. I assume tofu and tempe are the same or similar foodage ? On your specific recommendation of the aforementioned recipe I will have another go but beware the wrath that will descend on you if the household does not approve.

    Tofu and tempeh are similar in that they are both made from soya, but tofu is made from soya milk whereas tempeh is made from whole beans and thus has more flavour and fibre. Tofu has virtually no flavour - it takes on the flavour of whatever you are cooking it in, so if you think don't like tofu, you should look to your cooking rather than blame the tofu.

    Firstborn uses Mike's recipe to make a vegan 'scrambled eggs' - it's good on toast! I use tofu most often as a cheese substitute when making vegan 'sag paneer', frying it up with ground cumin, garam masala and garlic powder, with a bit of salt and chilli powder, then adding that to the spinach curry. A very popular dish at Stroud Towers.

    Maybe I should correct my description of tempe:
    "Like tofu, tempeh is made from soybeans, but it is a whole soybean product with different nutritional characteristics and textural qualities. Tempeh's fermentation process and its retention of the whole bean give it a higher content of protein, dietary fiber, and vitamins". I just eat it - I don't make it- so I defer to Stroud's explanation (but not to his recipe )

    Why would anyone want to substitute cheese ? ? ?

    I love cheese me.
