Maybe not the first thing you want to see waking up this morning, since it is party season and all but I made this vegan rum and eggnog last night and it was too good not to share🥂Only a few ingredients and so much lighter than your traditional nog🎄is eggnog a thing in the UK?? Even if it’s not you all should try this asap👌🏼if you don’t drink, it also makes a lovely festive mocktail too♥️recipe up on lunalovecow.com🐮💕
(📷is an outtake from shooting for the blog so a bit out of focus but too cute not to use. He managed to get a little bit of the nog as well🤦🏻♀️)
Not working yesterday totally threw me off today, keep forgetting it’s Tuesday! So much still to do before Christmas... I will be that guy getting their shopping done in November one year!🙈Tonight’s dinner was an old fav; whole wheat couscous cooked in veggie stock, roasted sweet potatoes, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, avocado, garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil, and lemon juice topped with @quorn_uk spicy burgers👌🏼always hits the spot👩🏻🍳
Have you heard about this brilliant place called @spice_box that's doing incredible things with dosa batter?* 🙃
All hail the dosa waffle (doffle) that comes with 3 different toppings: jackfruit tikka, masala potatoes and cabbage thoran. Only available until 30 Dec at @southbankcentre Winter Festival. 🎉
*Yes, I am biased cause I work there but hand on my heart it's one of the best things you'll ever taste.
Tonight the boyfriend cooked a lovely Christmas dinner for us 🎄🎉👨🏻🍳. When i say cooked, i mean heated up a load of Marks and Spencer’s vegan food to make a truly amazing Christmas dinner 🎅🏼. I have to say that i am so impressed with Marks and Spencer’s vegan options of late. Here we have the Festive Parsnip and Mulled Red Onion Roast which was delicious and hearty. We had some potato and onion rostis to go alongside (my favourite), some vegan onion gravy and then some veg. @marksandspencerfoodpr you have impressed me yet again with your vegan options. Here’s to many more! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
These delightful pancakes were from @osucoconuts in Camden🥞 On the left is an apple/cinnamon/walnut party 🍎 and on the right is a berry/chocolate/pb one 🍓The pancakes were so soft and fluffy ☁️ - and gluten free for you coeliacs! Will definitely be getting these again! Thanks to everyone who replied to my q on my story 😝
I think that I can safely call myself a chocoholic! I recently discovered these @seedandbeanchocolates and will be opening up this Raspberry and Coconut bar this weekend as a nice treat whilst I do some Christmas wrapping 🍫🎁. Think that I’ll watch a Christmas movie too.
Do you have a favourite Christmas movie? 🍿
Can still be festive whilst being Vegan. 🎅
ASDA mince pies are accidently vegan and they're actually one of the best I've tried (better than Costas too!) 🍮
More pastry than filling (just how I like them) and very crumbly. Gets my approval if you're into this sorta thing 👍
Aim is to have one everyday until Christmas 🎄
P. S fun fact, I always used to refuse these when handed to me when I was Vegetarian as I thought the mince was meat. Ha.
Is there anything as beautiful as the inside of a @youngvegans pie? NOPE 😍 Tried these bad boys for the first time at @hackneydownsmarket and now they've opened up shop just down the street at the Lock and my life is complete 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️❤️❤️
The queen! Mariah
Cauliflower Steak in Makhani Curry with Naan and a bunch of yummy toppings. SO DANG GOOD even my dad would approve! I'm Indian so I'm EXTREMELY picky with Indian food and I honestly was so taken aback by how enjoyable the curry meals are by @spice_box in KERB Camden #spicebox#camden#vegancurry
The Nutcracker from @mooshieslondon! Without a shadow of doubt the BEST festive burger I've had so far. I absolutely demolished this! 👌🏾🤤🍔
Get your teeth into a Chiang Mai spicy sausage from @spirichewallkitchen this Saturday at #broadwayveganmarket ! With a salad dressed in a sesame&soya dressing, spring onion & fresh chilli! The sausage is packed with lemongrass, kaffir lime leaf and galangal - full of flavour and festivity with a twist!
1 week and counting! ✨🎄What’s going to be on my plate this Christmas? Taking inspo from @deliciouslyella and her amazing new but roast recipe, with a side of maple roasted sprouts with pecans and cinnamon spiced sweet potatoes. Of course I’ll be munching on my plant-based mince pies all week long, along with festive raw brownies, a seasonal apple strudel and a ginger bread loaf, with a gooey cashew butter centre 🙌✨ I am SO excited and really hope you’re all enjoying the Christmas build up.
warm sweet potato brownies 🤗 I recommend everybody to try out @deliciouslyella sweet potato brownies recipe! They taste absolutely amazing 😍 (and you would never know that there was any sweet potato in them! They just taste of gooey rich chocolate cakes👏)
• I just used 2 medium sweet potatoes • 12 medjool dates • 6 tablespoons of pure maple syrup • 100g of ground almonds • 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil • a pinch or slat • 100g of ground oats • 6 table spoons raw cacao powder • and for the delicious chocolate icing I used 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, 2 tablespoons of almond butter • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup and 2 tablespoons of cacao powder • 😍🌱🍫🍠
B L E S S I N G S 🙏🏽 - Yesterday was our youngest daughter’s christening, and since I wanted to make sure there was something for me to eat, I went all out and made tons of food. My husband also cooked, so in addition to the dishes our parents made, we had an ABUNDANCE of everything!
I made a mushroom, spinach & caramelised onion wellington as part of the mains, roast potatoes, roast carrots and our desserts: Oreo cupcakes, glazed cinnamon cookies and chocolate crinkle cookies. It was hard work, but I had planned this out in my head for a number of weeks, so I got completely lost in my own zone 😳😳.
I was so busy that I didn’t get to take pictures of everything. My mum made sure she made me some vegan sushi (cucumber and avocado rolls), and the Hubbs made vegan jollof rice 👌🏼. A completely well rounded meal!
This was great preparation for Christmas, although I’m not sure when we will cook for one completely on our own. It was a great feeling seeing everyone relax and get full. And I can’t even explain how happy I was when most of my contributions were almost gone by the end of the party! Best feeling ever 🙌🏼 and so glad that my family and friends can see just how good vegan food can be.
Anyone else short of vegan options at parties? What do you usually do to make sure you’re not left out? 🌸
I cannot rave about @eatrealsnacks organic range of chips enough. I absolutely adore them and so does the boyfriend as I opened the veggie straw which he demolished in minutes! They were practically inhaled 😂. If you’re a fan of Eat Real products then definitely try and get your hands on their organic range. I feel like such a groupie but I genuinely adore these chips 😍✨❤️
