Cheers to the Vegan Food Swap!

My UK Vegan Food Swap parcel arrived last Friday just in time for the weekend. As is customary, I will do a full post about it at the end of the month but here's a taster. This month I was sent goodies by Mitsu, who is one of the organisers from To Happy Vegans. It was the first time I received a parcel where I had not tried a single product in it before!

I've not been to Ikea for years so I had no idea that you could buy vegan caviar. Amazing, it's acutally made from seaweed! We had it on oatcakes with a fake sour cream topping then the caviar on top of that. I used this recipe and fully intended to make the blinis too but the shop had run out of buckwheat flour! There must have been a rush on with pancake day.

For mains I tried recipes I'd not cooked before from Appetite For Reduction. This is the Broiled, Blackened Tofu which you actually grill to cook, a new tofu technique to me. It was quick to do and tasted great. Served alongside it is steamed kale and Gingered, Sweet Potatoes with Apple. I'm definitely going to explore this book further this year.
