This week we thought we’d try a special offer that we heard of through Sweatcoin. Snact are a company putting vegan snacks together mostly through the power of fruit, and they prepared a snack pack for Sweatcoin users to purchase at a discounted rate.
Recently we decided we just had to jump on the bandwagon and try the roasted cauliflower steaks from Sainsbury’s that everyone has been talking about. I’m definitely not a fan of cauliflower, but I figured that if it tasted more like something else with all the seasoning, it might just be worth a try.
Recently we headed to the Lady Luck (because when don’t we?) and were excited to try out their new special – pizza fries. Yes, it’s exactly as exciting as it sounds.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a snap of the menu like usual, but they’re fairly simple to explain. You’ve got sweet potato fries and hash browns, topped with onions, pizza sauce, and vegan cheese. Then it’s all melted together until it’s pretty delicious. It’s also pretty cute that they come out with a hashtag made with fries on top!
We promised more Cauldron reviews, and here we are! This time, we’re checking out the Cauldron vegan sausages.
They have a wide range of sausages available, so it’s always a tiny bit disconcerting when something is named “vegan” rather than being given a flavour. Like, what kind of flavour is vegan anyway? Is it a taste I’m supposed to recognise? Anyway, we’re going to look at some of their other sausages later on, so we’ll see why they’re so special they get their own names.
We’ve been trying out some new ranges ever since I decided to try going dairy-free, and a lot of the go-to items we were relying on turned out to contain milk. I couldn’t believe how much Quorn was full of it, so I was delighted to find these Cauldron vegan burgers. They have a full vegan range, so we’ll be featuring some of the rest soon!
We normally stick to burgers for our reviews, but this week we picked up Higgidy cheddar and onion chutney veggie rolls and we couldn’t resist giving them a review. We wanted something that would be a bit of a filler for packed lunches and finger food buffets, and they fit the bill perfectly.
This week, we’re looking at a new item we’ve added to our kitchen. We were given the Sensio Home Steamer in return for a review, but all thoughts below are our own.
The steamer, well, steams things. I know – crazy, right? But it’s actually really useful, because it gives you a set piece of equipment to get everything cooked in one go. We tested it out with a variety of veggies and some eggs: chopped broccoli on the bottom, then carrots with rosemary, and finally Brussels sprouts with three eggs. They weren’t all to be consumed at once… the eggs were for later, the veggies for Sunday lunch!
This recipe is one we’ve been really excited to share with you. These carrot and coconut energy balls are honestly the best energy balls or bites I’ve tasted. I tend to keep some in my bag whenever I go out in case I need a boost, so I’ve tried a fair few – both making our own recipes, following others, and purchasing them pre-made.
This week’s recipe is a twist on a classic – as you know we love to do. We started out thinking about a Buddha bowl, and how to put it together in an interesting way. After seeing them cooked as parcels in the oven, we were pretty disappointed to find out they weren’t served as parcels – and thus this idea was born.
Wetherspoons have added a new gourmet vegetable burger – I know, I was excited too. Thing is, they’ve only called it the gourmet vegetable burger, which seems a bit odd given that all the previous gourmet veggies actually had, well, names. Anyway, we’ll pass over that and get to the review.
