I love to document what I cook from my veg bag contents. It’s handy for when I can’t decide what to cook or recall a recipe. However I’m still building the habit of actually remembering to make the dish look nice and to then take a photograph. Not a terrible thing to fail at but frustrating when I recall eating something tasty but have no photographic evidence.
This week’s veg bag contents
Potato and swede hash with spicy mayo
I was delighted to see more swede in this week’s selection. So I used it to make more hash. I topped it off with some of this week’s batch of vegan mayo. In order to spice things up a bit I added a glug of chilli sauce to create a creamy spicy sauce.
I didn’t make this. In fact, my only efforts involved wrapping it in foil and baked it. I bought it from Lettices Foods at the Colchester Vegan Festival. It was delightful served with crusty bread and cranberry sauce.
More hash and filled flatbread
Actually I only made half of this meal. The filled flatbreads were bought at Colchester Vegan Festival. I purchased 3 of these. Then I put them in the freezer without labelling. Consequently it’s been a bit of lucky dip every time I eat one. I’m calling the dish on the rest of the plate ‘underground vegetable hash’.
Battered fishless pie
More evidence that I’ve been failing on the cooking front! This fishless pie, served by Battered on a pub grub night, was just as good as their fishless and chips.
Burgers and sweet potato fries
This is the final evidence proving that I’ve eaten out too much this week! At any rate it was great to finally make it to Mooshie’s on Brick Lane. These burgers were most satisfying to chow on before heading off to watch some burlesque.
Photographic fails this week included various lunches with salad, carrots and fried tofu. Plus a huge pan of borscht. Oh well – must try harder next week.
I'm bit keen on the colour green and like to ramble on about food, cooking, veganism, refashioning, sewing, clothes, list making, music, reading and anything else that pops up in my overcrowded existence! I'm also one half of Ink drops boxes, stationery by the boxful, dropped through your letterbox.
