I didn’t take many food photos this week. If you read my last post you’ll understand.
I had half a cauliflower in the fridge so I made cauliflower rice in the food processor and had it with some saag dhal I had in the freezer. it’s very light and doesn’t taste like boiled cauliflower, I just stir fried it for a few minutes.
I went swimming with Mum so we had a light salad beforehand, this was very tasty.
After all that swimming I had to reward myself so I had some Swedish Glace raspberry ice cream. I think this is my fave dairy free ice cream. Let’s see if Ben & Jerry beat it when they bring out their dairy free ones soon!
I continued my bread making this week. Loaf 2 was definitely better than 1 and 3 was better than 2 so I’m slowly getting there! I also made some vegan corned beef out of seitan. I only had half the vital wheat gluten so I halved the recipe all but the paprika! I found it quite salty but if I did it properly I think it would have turned out nice. I paired it with my fresh bread and chips.
I made a stew as we had a lot of veg left. I usually put more stock in but I don’t like my food too wet so reduced it in this one. I absolutely love dumplings ad put sage in these ones.
On Friday morning we were at the hospice and they made us a lovely breakfast. Most had full English but my sister-in-law and I had hashbrowns, mushrooms and beans. Sorry no photo!
I went to my in-laws new home on Saturday. I’ll have to give it it’s own post as it’s amazing and even has a museum in it! My Mother-in-law made me a lovely tofu curry, especially seeing as the new fridge and freezer don’t arrive until tomorrow!
My Mum and I usually arrange to do a Christmas day in London together. She’s taking me to the theatre in January as my present so we went to The Gate vegetarian restaurant in Islington, which we usually go to if we are seeing a production at Sadlers Wells which is around the corner.
To start I had this mustard seed potato cake which was filled with roasted vegetables.
Then for main we both had the Christmas rotolo. It has mushroom duxelle in the middle with cranberry sauce, Bean mash in the courgette roll, stuffing and veg. Both courses were delicious. The Gate also have a restaurant at Hammersmith which I great if you’re going to the Apollo as it’s around the corner.
I’ll hopefully be doing some more bread making this week so I should hone my skills even more!
