Tonight we had falafel, potato, spinach and onion cakes, stir fry onion, leek, broccoli and soy sauce, fried mushrooms. We enjoyed it and so did our meat eating family:

Quick #vegan #curry and the best ever #chocolate pud

So Fridays are really busy and I don’t have much time to cook and eat tea before I go back out to work. Enter chickpea curry:

Boil rice, in the meantime add to a saucepan tinned tomatoes, tinned chickpeas and curry paste.

Half way through rice boiling adda load of spinach to the curry.

Eat.

Seriously, it took 20 minutes, and I could make vegan chocolate microwave cake with defrosted cherries while it was:

Cheap, easy and tasty, it gets a cool for the curry and subzero for the pudding from us 🙂

The part time #vegan and home made #pizza

R and I have decided to go vegan… Mostly. The thing is, we love food and we love eating out with other people and being a vegan would pretty much make that experience miserable for everyone.
But we also care deeply about the environment, so we have found a compromise – we have started eating vegan when it is just him and me, and carry on eating everything with others.

Which brings me to the pizza:

This was home made pizza dough with chilli, humous, olives, sun dried tomatoes, mushrooms and a teensy bit of BBQ sauce. It was so yummy we were glad to have it for lunch the next day:

And as far as the foodie cool board goes, I think it might have made it to subzero.
Be prepared for more vegan food to appear here 🙂

#255 – Food

Normally for Sunday Scribblings i would write a poem, but as the theme is food, I would like to take the opportunity to tell you about the Foodie Cool Board.
for about as long as I have been blogging, I have been cooking, R and I have eaten it and then I have blogged including a score, from the awesome subzero, through cool, ok and down to uncool.

It has included all sorts of yummy things, quite a lot from Jamie Oliver’s magazine, along with some recipes I learnt from my mother – I would love it if you took a  little journey with R and I enjoying food and the Foodie Cool Board as much as we have!
