You know by now that we love pulled jackfruit. We can’t get enough of it – when it’s done right, that is. We just had to have a go at working with this recipe ourselves and seeing what kind of variations we could do, and how to make our own pulled jackfruit burgers.
We’re back with another review, this time of the new vegan burger on the menu at Frankie and Benny’s. Priced at £9.99, it’s a pleasant addition to the menu – it’s always great to see big chains adding those vegan options, and we especially appreciate the fact that it’s not just a field mushroom.
After coming back from Australia, J couldn’t wait to try out cooking one of the dishes he ate while he was over there. This is his recreation of a chicken parma – you can see the recipe down below, as well as the video of how we made it.
This isn’t exactly health food, but it is pretty easy to make it vegan all you have to do is add vegan cheese instead of cheddar – or just cut the cheese out entirely! Most UK supermarkets now stock a good-quality vegan cheese in grated form, so you’ll be fully ready to go.
We were out at a fashion event recently when the deadly Hunger Monster struck – no, honestly, it can be deadly when the two of us get our hangry moods on. Needless to say, there was only one thing for it: scramble for somewhere to eat, and fast. Enter Rehab, Hackney, which just sorted of happened to be right there when we needed it. It’s not often you stumble by accident into a vegan eatery right when you’re feeling peckish.
This week is a double header, as we’re reviewing two things at once. Gasp! Well, we ate them on the same plate, so it seemed fair. Our victims were the Quorn Jambalaya and Sweet Chilli Sausages, both from a range which is new, at least, to us.
We needed to stop off for food at Westfield recently, and though I almost always vote in favour of Wahaca, I’m also not averse to trying a new burger if there is one available. Enter Cabana, which boasts of serving Rio-style street food – including this halloumi burger.
We know, we know – we haven’t done one of our own recipes in a while. Truth be told, we have been filming and making things behind the scenes – it’s just been a case of life getting away from us. R has been working on several projects, including heading up London Runway as Chief Editor, while J recently changed jobs after coming back from a trip to Australia. Then this was all followed up by lots of events and some sponsored/gifted posts, which you’ve been seeing lately.
It’s a double whammy – we’ve got not one, but TWO reviews from the Gosh range for you today. We’ve already tried some of their products in the past, but this is our first time trying something actually burger-shaped.
Two things, actually: first up, the Moroccan Spiced Bakes with Red Pepper and Apricot. While these technically make no claim towards being burgers, just look at them: they’re burgers.
This week I’m sharing something I eat far too often. That’s right, my life is now so ridiculous that either my dinner or my lunch often consists of “whatever Caffe Nero have on the shelves at Waterloo Station”.
Thankfully, what they have on the shelves includes this relatively new option: a sweet potato falafel and beetroot houmous wrap, which comes with harissa slaw and spinach.
This one is a bit of a mouthful, but we’ll give it a go: we’ve tried the Cauldron Aduki Bean Melts, Made with Aduki Beans, Spinach, Mushroom and Aromatic Spices, Filled With Mango Chutney. I’d like to point out that I added my own punctuation there. Some brands just aren’t mindful of their grammar.
