Round up of the week’s food 160417

I’ve had a really good week despite the weather and feel really upbeat!

I had seen a photo of some miso baked aubergine on instagram and thought I’d give it a go as I had some miso paste in the fridge. I served it with roasted veg and chickpeas, it was a really wholesome meal!


On Tuesday I stopped by CookDaily to have a quick bite to eat. You can see my full review here.


On Wednesday my Husband made me burger and chips using Fry’s Traditional Burgers. You can’t beat a good burger, especially one that’s loaded with mustard, ketchup, onions and pickles!


On Thursday I enjoyed an Italian meal with my friend Jo, you can read my full review here.

On Friday I wanted to use the aquafaba I had from the chickpeas I had eaten on Monday so I made some mini quiches using this recipe (I left out the spinach). I haven’t cooked with aquafaba before but I was really pleased with the results!

The recipe called for a third of a cup of coconut milk so I enjoyed the rest of the can with some pineapple juice to have a virgin pina colada.

I went to Tesco this week, (I usually shop in Sainsburys) and picked up some items from their free from range. I really love these banana fromage frais with my breakfast and I’ve had to ban my Husband from nicking my dairy free ice creams!

Yesterday I made myself a cooked breakfast using some more the mini quiches, I had a big day out at the Anti Austerity March so needed the sustenance!


As that was all I had eaten in the day I decided to treat my Husband and me to an Indian takeaway. I had spinach with lentils, chickpea curry, aubergine and potato, veg samosa and a roti.


Today I visited the Museum of Childhood with my Mum. We ate at the nearby Gallery Cafe beforehand and I’m going to write up a full review later.

I’m definitely going to sleep well tonight after such a busy week and weekend!

Hope you’ve had a good one too!

Round up of the week’s food 160417

Review -CookDaily @ BOX PARK Shoreditch

Yesterday I needed to grab some food before my hair appointment so as I was travelling through Liverpool Street I thought I’d take a walk down to Boxpark in Shoreditch. I really like this area of London and don’t venture into it enough seeing as I work so close.

Boxpark is a retail space made out of shipping containers with mainly shops on the ground level and eateries upstairs.

I had seen some photos of the food from the totally vegan CookDaily online and wanted to try it out. They have various dishes ranging from curries and noodles to all breakfast and raw offerings. They also serve ice tea and a range of vegan beers.

I went for noodles with vegetables and tofu. It was really tasty and filling and had a wide variety of vegetables included.


Next time I want to try the Caribbean bowl, although I’m not too sure about the hot bonnet sauce so they said I could try that separately to see if I can handle the heat!

Have you been to CookDaily? What did you think?
