How much food can one vegan eat? You might be surprised……. Or not!
If you follow my blog you might recall that I have not been very good friends with vegan cheese. I never really enjoyed the flavour or after taste that much. In truth it just wasn’t the cheese I once knew. However these things can change and over the festive period cheezly and I became much better acquainted.
If used in small amounts in various dinners it adds another flavour and texture which can really add to a meal and not work against it! I LOVED it in a vegan cheese BLT. I melted the cheese on top of the bacon while it was cooking. OMG is was good.
Then a little added on top of a burrito and melted in the oven was pretty darn good too.
In December I was treated to some Dr Cow tree nut trees by Santa Mitsu which I enjoyed with raw spirulina & kale crackers – they ran out before the cheese so I had to make do with other crackers after that!
The new year has been all about green smoothies – these are soooooooo good for you. I first heard of these via Victoria Boutenko (the raw family) and her book Green for life. It is a really good read. I recommend it. My usual green smoothie includes; celery, cucumber, spinach & pear. You can liquidise anything green and add a little fruit to sweeten. Blueberries work well in it but turn the colour to pond water!
Over the Christmas period I enjoyed a few treats. My favourite was goey chocolate brownie served with custard and berry coulis. YUM!
