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 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.
We’ve got another exciting video for you today, as we tried out the Gluten Freegan coffee cake mix! We received this packet free of charge to provide you with an honest and unbiased review. It was perfect timing as I am still struggling to cut out lactose from my diet, and being both gluten-free and vegan, the range has a lot of options for me.
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’re back after a teensy bit of a winter break with a brand new recipe that definitely brings the warmth: toasted burritos. This dish pays homage to Mexican traditions and is perfectly attuned to both our tastes and what we normally have in the fridge – basically, it’s the kind of thing we could make any night of the week.
