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.
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!
Our new recipe this week is the fabulous naan burger, a dish we dreamt up whilst possibly under the strong influence of one two many curries. This is what happens when you try to combine an Indian dish with a burger, and, well, it’s pretty epic.
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.
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?
We’re loving the fusion theme at the moment, and so these Italian quesadillas came to mind. We started with the basic idea of the Insalata Caprese: a salad which is meant to represent the colours of the Italian flag. Red tomatoes, white mozzarella, and green basil are a staple of this dish.
We were invited down this past weekend to sample some veggie food and cocktails at Brick & Liquor, a relatively new venue in Tooting. It opened in October 2016 under the management of David Layton, who has 12 years of experience in running venues across London.
For this week’s recipe, we wanted to do something a little different. We came up with a fusion of two of our favourite cuisines: Chinese fajitas.
This is a pretty fun meal to make, all the more so because it’s totally unexpected. But if you can make duck pancakes, we figured you can also make duck fajitas. And why shouldn’t satay sauce go with black beans? As it turns out, it does – very nicely indeed.
This recipe may not be the prettiest, but I can assure you that this aubergine bake tastes AMAZING. What’s more, it’s so low in calories you could eat it all day long and barely see the difference.
I’m not always an aubergine fan, but there’s something about chopped tomatoes and cheese that makes everything better. Here’s the Vine so you can see how we made it, and be sure to scroll down for the recipe!
