A Simple Vegan Stir-fry

vegan stir-fry

Sometimes that’s all you need. Vegetables in a stir-fry. Broad beans from the garden. A good book.

And some sea and sand…

#vegan toad in the hole

toad in the hole, vegan

Our vegan Toad in the Hole turned out soft and light and delicious and filling and tasty. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did 😀

Partly cook sausages in oven at 200C for about 10 minutes:toad1

Batter made thus: mix 5 tablespoons of self raising flour with 3 tablespoons of gram (chick pea) flour, a pinch of salt and a pinch of bicarb. Beat in enough soya milk to make a creamy pouring batter. This quantity was to cover 12 sausages, adjust as needed. It would be far less ‘spongy’ if you used plain flour, but we like it like this 🙂

Pour over hot sausages:

Then it’s back in the oven for another 20-30 minutes until nice and solid:

Serve with gravy, roast potatoes and veg. Yum, yum, yum.

Now: Vegan Cheeses!

These may or not make it to the daily changing Christmas dish… Actually they’re more likely to be saved for part of Christmas dinner 🙂

From Vegan Supermarket GreenBay (online and in store), vegan Camembert and Herbes de Provence! They have many other gourmet and hard to find vegan products… go see!

Today: nuts!

Christmas Donut, Winter Trees

From the Co-op 🙂

We’re eating lots of carrot soup and reading The Telling.

And enjoying the beautiful low winter sun as it lights the trees…



Summer?

It’s summer! Well, summery… sometimes. Along with the start of barefoot beach walks this means The Last Bus Canteen (totally vegan café near New Pitsligo, Aberdeenshire) is open again at weekends:

Also of interest to local people: The Davron Hotel in Rosehearty has a new extensive vegan menu which boasts starters, mains and various puddings.

Book-wise we’ve been enjoying:

Philippa Gregory’s The Taming of the Queen and Deliciously Ella with Friends, a plant based cook book with lots of full colour photos.

And rainbows, we’ve been enjoying rainbows…

Tofurky Roast

Tofurky Roast with herb gravy, available from online (and instore) vegan supermarket GreenBay!

GreenBay sell a variety of gourmet vegan products that would be great for Christmas treats such as cheeses (including Camembert), steak and bacon etc.

Now… off to decorate the enormous tree that has come home this year…
