to use in a recipe a few months back, and haven't used it sense.

What does the PPK do with Marmite?

Put it on toast? I've heard rumours that you can use it as a flavouring for stews/soups too.

I used to like a little bit of it (say half a teaspoon) mixed with mashed potato and chopped onion in toasted sandwiches

Spread a little EB on the toast first. It helps the marmite spread more evenly and lightly over the toast so you don't get an overwhelming big glop in one spot. Then it's extra nice if you top the marmite toast with some onion slices. I saw someone here saying they used it to make gravy. I haven't tried that yet, but it sounded good. What kind of recipe did you originally buy it for?

It actually was for a gravy recipe, I think I found it from a link from these boards.

O, how I love Marmite!!! I put it in sauces and gravies and pretty much any Britishy recipes where you'd use meat (especially mince). You can go to my blog and search "Marmite," but here are a few things I always use it in.

http://elizaveganpage.blogspot.com/2010/11/nigellas-back-from-vegan-bar-snack.html

That said, probably my favorite way to eat it is as follows: take some bread and spread with a thin layer of Earth Balance, Marmite, English mustard (like Coleman's), and a generous sprinkling of nooch. Place in toaster oven and toast until golden brown and delicious; the result is toast as it exists in the mind of God! (You can also do this in the regular oven, obviously; just keep an eye on it!)

Thanks for all the links & ideas. I will try the toast for a snack today, but I may try the mustard on only half to see what the difference tastes like. I hope that doesn't sound like heresy!

I love it on toast with either Earth Balance or peanut butter. That's how we usually eat it but it does also go into any thick veggie stew or gravy.

I love using it in seitan, and it's always an ingredient in my gravies. Also, marmite, tahini, and chili flakes on toast. Best.

If you find you like it with toast, try a few slices of avocado on top of it. (probably skip the EB in this incarnation).

yeah marmite and tahini on toast is excellent, particularly if you put it under the broiler for a minute or two and it gets all bubbly.

Mmmmmarmite! Echoing what others said, it's great on toast, in soups, stew, gravies, dressings, marinades. It's one of my fave things, really.

I'm a bit hesitant, can someone please describe what it tastes like? Is it like miso?

It's miso-ish. But really salty. A little goes a long way. It's almost like if nooch and bouillon paste and miso had a child, except way better than that sounds.

Stir into any beany/stewy type thing, but bear in mind a little goes a long way. I like it in a thin layer underneath peanut butter on toast. It's also great stirred into baked beans.

Throw it in the bin because it's a dirty jar of sadness.

Marmite will tear us apart.

I like it best on toast with peanut butter. I am sadly without at the moment.

Will swap for liquid smoke/peanut butter puffins? Although with postage prices having gone up so much recently maybe it's no cheaper to do a swap now than buy it for whatever horrendous price an importer wants to charge.

The one time I tried Marmite (at a PPK meetup!) it reminded me of a thick/viscous soy sauce, but this description seems apt as well.

Marmite is the overly-sweet-two-headed-step-cousin to the amazing Vegemite :)

(I got Vegemite for christmas, and juuuuust finished some toast)

That's called 'both' (because they're they only two toast toppings you need to know about- you can have pb, or marmite, or both!)

Mash it into a crispy baked potato with some marge. Have it (with marge) on rice cakes or ryvita.

And remember it keeps forever!
