    Hi,

    I am not a fan of anything particularly sweet, but I made a veggie burger earlier ( as suggested on the recip thread)....it required some tabasco and a sweetner...I found some Silver Spoon sweetners and put one in.
    My question is are all sweetners ok? And do we have a limit on LL as to how many or which brand?

    Thanks. :)

    PS..The veggie burger was gorgeous! ;)

    Seconded!

    At the beginning, I found the shakes to be quite bland, but over time they've started tasting sweeter to me; I certianly can't imagine putting sweetner in them now! Hopefully it's because my sweet tooth has been put back in check :p

    I made it by putting 100ml of hot water in a bowl with the pack of veg soup.
    Add one sweetner and tabasco sauce ( I wasn't sure about that, but trust me, it really makes it nice!)

    Stir it all up and put in microwave for about 1-2 mins, stirring in between once or twice, and it gets a bit doughy and drier.
    Then shape the ball into a flat patty/burger and grill on either side for a minute or until looks grilled.

    Have enjoyed one for 2 nights now...very nice! :)
