Christmas Food & New Challenge


Bit late to post pictures of Christmas food but what the hell I have been having some time off.

Firstly breakfast Christmas morning - Speeculoos porridge - porridge made with M&S soya milk, 1/4 of a jar of speculoos spread and a banana. This was really good but as I get older I am loosing my sweet tooth. I think this Christmas I might eat more savoury stuff

Christmas Dinner - This is my sixth vegan Christmas and my third with Tofurky (hopefully not the last)

Boxing day sandwich - Everything from Christmas dinner in a sandwich

Homemade Christmas Cake - For this I used the Suma cake recipe but I soaked the fruit in brandy before hand and fed it brandy every week

Homemade Mince Pies - I always make mince pies, they taste much better that way covered with soya cream

Devilled Chickpea Sandwiches - I made 2 of my favourite sandwiches over Christmas - Christmas eve was the Chickn sandwich from The Conscious Cook  - no photo's :-(  - and this from Vegan Sandwiches Save The Day (my other favourites were 5 spice seitan with Vegusto & spicy coleslaw & the chickpea pickle from PETA's college cookbook)

Kind of Kedgeree  - I made this with a Redwood/Vbites fish style steak, rice & Vegg fried silken tofu. It looks awful but was yummy 

Redwood/VBites pasty - 2 of my favourite things - sprouts & pastry. These are great pasties and should be made every year

Christmas Pudding Icecream - I am a huge fan of Christmas Pudding Ice Cream, I made this using the vanilla ice cream recipe from Hearty Vegan Meals for Monster Appetites but added half a Co-op finest Christmas Pudding

New Cookbook Challenge - This year I will be doing a far more relaxed challenge, 1 book a month. This month its Happy Herbivore Light & Lean which I will be posting about soon


  1. I like your festive plates, and that ice-cream looks especially delicious!

  2. Sorry for the delay in responding, just found the message. Many thanks, the ice cream was lovely :-)
