Our vegan feasts in & out over the last few weeks...
Scrambled tofu, sun-dried tomato & guacamole pizza at Samphire in Plymouth...
We love mushy peas - especially home made, but at Samphire they make fabulous mushy broad beans...
As well as yummy cheeselesscakes!
The Chai Shop in Bishop's Castle was just underneath the house we stayed in & we were thrilled to find out that all their veggie options were actually vegan.
Authentic home cooked Indian food lovingly prepared by mother & daughter - Tahira & Rozie.
So good we visited twice!!!
A selection of vegan starters, a sample of all the vegan curries with rice & a lovely cup of tulsi tea!

Delicious vegan pizza out with Jess' family on her 18th Birthday.
Full on sugary bliss (AKA Hugo's 18th Birthday cake).
In the week, we made roasted butternut squash curry & our version of saag aloo - using kale instead of spinach. The leftovers got whizzed up with breadcrumbs, walnuts, simmered onions & garlic, herbs & spices to make a nut roast.
We use our slow cooker most days, more than ever since Bebe's been in care - although we realise what hard work it was caring for her, it's only now that we can really appreciate the time we have again to do the things we love...
Like preparing our meals before we venture out for the day - arriving home to a one pot feast is wonderful!
Now what shall we have to eat?
