Banana Blossom ‘Fish’ n Chips
I’ve had a tin of banana blossom sitting at the back of the cupboard for a while, and it was time to do something with it. It’s strange stuff, but I’ve found it works as a really good vegan alternative to fish or seafood. It worked really well in the paella I made last year….
Vivera Veggie Fish Goujons – Watch Out Captain Birdseye!
I took a break from proper cooking last night and went for a quick and easy dinner: Vivera Veggie Fish Goujons with sweet potato chips and peas. I don’t quite know how Vivera did it, but these are great! I never would have thought before going vegan that something like breaded fish would be possible…
Turmeric Latte: Sounds Disgusting, Tastes Amazing
Most summers I find myself at Greenbelt Festival over the August bank holiday weekend. A favourite spot at the festival is the Tiny Tea Tent. One night at this year’s festival I fancied a hot drink before bed and spotted a turmeric latte on the menu. It sounded horrible, but I decided to risk it…

Of course, I ignored that and bought a yellow block of something resembling cheddar. It was disgusting. It was like eating coconut flavoured…
Vegan Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese
A few weeks ago I tried a smoked carrot sandwich from the Wicked Kitchen vegan range at Tesco. I’ve got to admit, it was really good! It had the look of a smoked salmon sandwich, the and much to my surprise it tasted like it too! I was surprised and intrigued by this. Smoked salmon…
Banana Blossom and Jackfruit Paella
A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a little vegan festival happening in a community centre in County Durham. Alternative Stores from Newcastle (a place I’ve shopped before) had a stall. They sell some unusual products, and I picked a few things up. One item I had never heard of before was banana blossom, which…
