brEAThe, Paris – Feb 2019

We booked a table at brEAThe for our second night (and my birthday) in Paris. We had a table booked for 7 but we didn’t have time to go back to the apartment from our day out before-hand so headed straight there and were welcomed to our table when the restaurant opened at 18.30.

They had a lovely list of cocktails and it was difficult to decide. I ultimately went for the cherry Negroni which was a strong as they described!

My Husband chose the mushroom and seitan ravioli to start which was very nice when I tried a bite.

For my main I had the cep linguine. The sauce was tasty with a strong mushroom flavour although I was disappointed that my “artichokes” consisted of one half of an artichoke.

My Husband chose the burger and he was sadly disappointed. The garlic mayo lacked a garlic punch and he said he couldn’t taste a difference between the bun and the filling despite the gooey cheese and the onion ring. He said the burger we regularly have at Leon is much better and a third of the price at £5.45 against this plate at €16.50.

I was happy with my dessert of Millefeuille which came with a blackcurrant Chantilly cream and chestnut cream.

Vegan MoFo 18 – Day 16

Today’s prompt – Pantry Meal

My cupboards are so well stocked at the moment I’m finding it hard to get anything more into them so I definitely need to have a run down!

I was really fancying something sweet so with nothing ready made to hand I decided to go with these two recipes. I have had this chocolate houmous recipe in my bookmarks for a while so I decided to pair it with these almond cookies for a gluten free treat. I use ground almonds to make vegan cheese so there is always some in my cupboard. I also make savoury houmous regularly so there’s always chickpeas and tahini about.

The houmous was wetter than I was expecting and think it definitely needed some more tahini and possibly some salt (my Husband wasn’t keen on this at all and said it was too chickpea-y) so it needs some work. The almond cookies however were so quick and easy to make these are definitely going to be made again.

What are your go to cupboard favourites? Let me know in the comments below.
