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:
For afters we had my my own vegan cheesecake:
And here’s the recipe:
2 packs of violife creamy
1 oatly cream
A slug of vitafiber
Ginger nut biscuits
Crush biscuits, melt vitalite, combine and press into dish, refrigerate while making toping.
Mix vitafiber and oatly then heat and boil for about 30 seconds then combine with violife and use a hand mixer until smooth.
Pour over base and refrigerate. When set add toping of choice.
Made with… food doctor pitta, fortify cafe cashew nuts cheese, mung beans, mushrooms and tomatoes 🙂
We gave it a foodie cool board rating of subzero 🙂
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.
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 🙂
…and raspberries and soya cream 🙂
We SO enjoyed this recipe from bbc good food, R enjoyed it even though he is in heyfever hell.
I think I shall make it in triple quantity so I can out some in the freezer as it takes quite a while to make.
We gave it a rating of subzero.
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 🙂
R is at work till midnight, so I took the chance to eat something I love and he hates… It would have been bread and butter pudding, but I didn’t have any butter. Nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar made it very yummy all the same 🙂
You can find it here…
…and it gets a rating of subzero from us 🙂
Its fairtrade fortnight and the Fairtrade Foundation
have lots of cool fairtrade competitions on their facebook page
. I decided to enter the baking competition, so for your delight I present the fairtrade curly windmill cake!
Well they did say go over the top:
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
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!
