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:
This week we’re bringing you a review of Ora kitchen towels, a revolutionary little product which we were gifted in order to bring you our opinion.
These towels are not your grandma’s paper towels. The way that they are stored and stacked means a big difference in the way that you can use them. You can grab them with one hand with no need to tear them off the sheet – which is perfect for when something spills and you need to act fast. You won’t accidentally unravel the whole roll or waste anything because of this format. There’s also twice as many towels as you would get with conventional kitchen rolls, so there’s so much to like about them.
This week, we combined two things we really love to come up with a third thing which is equally, if not more, awesome. Pizza houmous is where we’re coming from today, and let me tell you, you are going to enjoy this one.
Let’s break this one down a little so you can understand the layers of what is going on here. First you have a pizza-inspired houmous dip which is baked and served in a bowl ready to eat. Then there’s the topping of cheese melted right over the top of the houmous. Finally, you have the homemade nachos covered in cheese, representing the crust and also serving as a scoop to eat all that lovely dip with.
This week we’re taking you to another Canterbury restaurant, Tacos Locos. Anyone who recalls our trip to Budapest knows we found a fantastic restaurant there by the same name. This English version, sadly, does not live up to the original. Let’s explore how.
This week we’re bringing you some oreo chocolate cubes with a peanut butter centre that will have you melting. We wrapped up all our favourite sweet things in one place with a heaping helping of protein for a gym snack that doubles as a dessert.
We are thrilled this week to be reviewing Bad Brownies, after we had some of their delicious treats sent out to us as a sample. “They must be lying,” was the first thing J said when we opened up the package and took our first bite. “There’s no way that’s vegan.”
