Last week we were lucky enough to be invited to eat at Inamo in Covent Garden with a £30 voucher. While we did end up spending double that without even trying – budget diners may want to take note – it was an excellent meal and a fabulous experience overall.
We know you’re dying to know what was in our VIP goody bags at Brighton Viva! Vegan Festival, so here we are with the reveal! It was such a great event that there was too much to cover in just our event post, and so we set aside this week’s video post to let you know all about the products we got our hands on.
So, this is what’s in it. It’s a soya burger with BBQ sauce, vegan cheese and onion rings, served on a homemade white roll with chips. It costs £9.95 and is vegan, but not gluten-free.
We were at the fantastic Brighton Viva! Vegan Festival this weekend and had such an amazing time. It’s been more and more thrilling to attend these events – being around so much vegan food is really exciting, and offers us the chance to eat things we’ve never seen before.
This week we decided to give Fry’s a try. Fry’s isn’t available in our local supermarket but we did find a wide range at Holland and Barrett, of which these Fry’s meat free traditional burgers were one.
You cook them by frying, which makes sense given the name. We popped them into a pan with some FryLight and gave them a try, served up with some Quorn bacon and rice for an impromptu weeknight meal that was quick and easy to make.
Recently we received a complimentary Cheese Posties delivery for review, and we’re itching to share that experience with you. You’ve heard of box subscriptions in almost every category that you can think of, but this one is super interesting – it’s a cheese toastie delivered to you at regular intervals so you can make your own with fancy ingredients and unique flavours. This is gourmet DIY toasted sandwich goodness all delivered in a quirky package – and did we mention their name is just about the best pun ever?
We’re back with a round-up of the products we sampled, bought, and received in our VIP goody bags at London Viva! Vegan. It was such a great event that there was too much to cover in just our event post, so here we are with the rest!
Let’s start with our VIP goody bag – we opened it on camera for you as we do at every event, and you can watch that here:
This week’s video recipe is something a little bit different: lasagna soup. We love soup so much we decided to make a few recipes based on bringing our favourite dishes to soup form, so there are going to be plenty more where this came from.
This dish brings everything we enjoy about lasagna to a soup. It also brings along everything we enjoy about soup to a lasagne, which is pretty neat. We started with a tomato base and included plenty of the vegetables and herbs that you might want to use in your lasagna, which was a good start – but still just a vegetable soup. So how to make it more lasagna?
After the fun we had at the London event, we’re pleased to announce that we’re giving away a pair of Brighton Viva! Vegan Festival tickets, for the event on the 7th and 8th October!
Brighton Viva! Vegan Festival is a huge vegan festival with 100 fantastic stalls for you to browse. There will be recipes to try, free samples, inspirational cookery demos and informative talks running throughout the day, so there’s no shortage of things to do.
We headed out to London this weekend for the Viva! Vegan Festival, which was held in the Drum at Wembley. It’s a huge venue and it was packed full of various vegan stalls, which was just amazing to see. There was so much variety, as you can see in our video here:
