Love the channel, amazing recipes. Yet I can't help but wonder why this bruh look like the guy who plays the main antagonist from 'Moms got a date with a vampire' (disney channel)

Laura Grayson says:

Looks yummy but with butter and cheese it's not vegan.

LaMill Harris says:

Phenomenal! Gonna try this soon. Any ideas about pairing this with a soup?

Robert Mesk says:

Hi Derek. I'm not vegan but I love what you cook. Your food always looks fresh and appetising. I will make some of your dishes on the days I don't eat meat.
The mushroom steak fried rice dish is one that I will definitely make.

Why waste the stems? Great for sauces. Thanks for the presentation. I’m looking forward to my cheese n chickpea sandwich❣️

Roger Exline says:

Wow, all the olive oil is a real turn off. You really don't have to think much about flavor just drown in olive oil. lol

No Neme says:

Grilled or fried…maybe it's boiled cheese sandwich.

Hey Derek! Why don't you show people how to make a nice vegetable stock? Instead of throwing stalks and ends of the veggies away 😉

Sarah Dee says:

Maybe like life: it's messy, if you're doing it right!

Bas Finnis says:

Ooh nice. I'll have a go at these 🙂 Thanks mate.

Deserthi says:

I think that vegan cooks that have to use oil in their dishes are lesser chiefs to say the least.

Radical⚧Robynette says:

Yo you should use the stems of herbs. They have a lot of flavor in them :).
