Chickpea Tuna

My latest delicious discovery is Chickpea Tuna.

It's absolutely delicious on a sandwich, in a baked potato or just eaten as it is straight from the bowl.  I guess it's been given the 'tuna' name because it does look a lot like a tuna and mayo sandwich .... and has a taste slightly reminiscent of it .... but thankfully no fish have gasped their last in the makings of this  :-)

I got the recipe out of an old copy of Vegan Food and Living magazine. If you want to read it clearer just click on the photo to enlarge it.

Extremely healthy and extremely tasty .... even if it is a little bit messy to look at!!

Cheats Vegan Cake ... with Pop

I've heard of this method of making a vegan cake from a cake mix a few times, but I've never tried it ..... perhaps I will next time I'm in the mood for a cake.

Carrot Hotdogs !!

I was in two minds about these when I first started watching this video ... but when I saw the little boys reaction ... well I might just give them a go  :-)

"Where Do You Get Your Protein From?"

I got asked this again this morning 'where do you get your protein from?'.  

In my head the word aaarrrggghhh reverberates round and around but out loud I try and explain ... politely ... it's hard to do.

There is actually protein in every foodstuff we eat with the exception of fats and sugars, so there's no need to panic if you are eating a well balanced diet .

And if you want to ask someone where they get their protein from ask him
.... go on I dare you  :-)

Happy Easter

There are so many ways to celebrate Easter that do not have to involve slices of dead animal on your plate .... not that the television adverts would make you think this.  Seemingly we should all be buying parts of lambs, fresh chickens to roast and even, in direct competition to Christmas ... turkey.

  Whatever you choose to have I hope you enjoy it, me ... well I'll be eating as normal, just things from the freezer or the cupboard, no special shopping needed.


I could have had a chocolate Easter Egg  .... but I chose a bottle of wine instead  ;-)

On a Desert Island

If you don't think this is a real question that people ask vegans .... think again!!

And absolutely brilliant in hot coffee and tea is the new Oatly Barista.

You Can't Beat a bit of Garlic Bread .......

A new obsession  :-)

Totally vegan, very delicious and handy to have in the freezer for those 'aarrgghh I need something tasty to eat in ten minutes' moments.

Yes I could make my own, and I do ... but sometimes it's just nice to have something you don't have to think about waiting to be grabbed from inside the fridge or freezer.
