#vegan lemon meringue pie. It was my 1st attempt and the lemon taste was gorgeous but the meringue was a bit flat. Room for progress!
Thanks to daily experimentation and finally @ainecarlin whose recipe has a dash of vinegar and of lemon juice, I have absolutely nailed #vegan breakfast tofu scramble. For one: 1/4 onion, 1/2 celery stick, 1-2 of those tiny sweet peppers - chop finely and fry til softened. Add crumbled tofu (I fork it before adding to pan) and mix in w fried stuff. Then add in my special mix of 1 tbsp nooch, 1/2 tbsp mixed herbs, dash of Himalayan salt, pinch of turmeric, pinch of zatar. Add to pan and mix in. Then add dash of vinegar, dash of lemon juice, dash of nut/plant milk (obvs not a sweetened one!) for a bit of moisture. Cook for 5 mins and done! I also add a big handful of chopped fresh spinach. It's sooooo good!
Mushroom stroganoff from @littlemissmeatfree #15minutevegan was supposed to have ale but I didn't have any - @meridianfoods No-salt yeast extract stock did just as well! And I added chopped walnuts, as hadn't eaten enough of them today! Also did celery/onion instead of all onion and some tarragon. Lovely depth of flavour.
I'm back at @royaloperahouse tonight! Can't get enough of the #insights programme. This time, it's a look at the costumes and archive material from the collections.
Calling all #oxford #uk #vegan folks, get yourselves to @theperchoxford - full vegan menu, 2 choices each course, and PROPER pud! This was plum & almond crumble w. soy milk custard. I nearly licked the dish! Fantastic service too! @agbear & @jessiicaturner would be worth adding a p.s. to your #oxford #uk restaurant guide.
For all the lovely folk who are new to following me, here's a plug for my novel! Part-set in #jordan, with #petra featuring big time, it's an easy, fun, entertaining read. Simply search for 'The Broken Heart Repair Plan' on Amazon. #fiction #novel
Oh wow, Damascus Gate, Dublin, is amazing! Best lentil soup I've had in years. *slightly* overordered with the Syrian fries and fatoush but such a #vegan paradise has to be sampled! @damascusgate
