I Eat A Lot

I pack in so much food, and here are a few things we've been eating in May.

Falafel pie, made from a packet mix sent to us by our friend Em, with avocado, roast veg - I assume they had some kind of flavouring but I can't remember, and some panko coated squash. The breadcrumbs have been in the pantry for months. probably since last year, so it was time to start using them. 



Fried rice with tofu and the rest of the panko squash, which was delicious.


Coconutty curry with the remaining tofu. 


Loads and loads of sandwiches, my favourite being these mushrooms roasted in soy sauce and paprika, delicious hot or cold (if you can face mushrooms, which until a few years ago I could not, and I know a lot of people are the same). 



Mixed beans in jerk sauce with quinoa, which was delicious too, luckily there were leftovers.



At the weekend we visited our favourite street food van twice. We had this delicious black bean, mushroom, cashew and millet burger, with tamarind chutney and all manner of other things. 



We also ventured into new territory by trying some noodles!



All rounded off with ice cream! Dan had malted coconut milk and mine was almond and plum. 



Five tins of carlin peas remain in the pantry. 

eta: apologies for the amount of times I said delicious!

  2. It doesn't matter how much you eat when it's as delicious and healthy as that. Oops! I used the D word too. The ice-cream menu reads incredibly tasty too. X

    1. The ice cream was a nice surprise, very enjoyable.

      I do seem to be getting through a lot of veg at the moment, which is great.

  4. There’s a Dutch legume called capucijners we eat regularly with smoked pork dishes... here’s how I prepare them

    Soften a mixture of diced carrot / onion / garlic / celery / leek ( all or as many as you like) in oil, add a tsp of marigold stock powder and a couple of splashes of water and the peas and braise together with the lid on until veg is cooked. Add a big tsp of whole grain mustard. You should have a glaze rather than a gravy.

  5. The whole post was delicious. I love noodles especially the fresh ones made from edamame or sweet potato ( look out in M and S) which I buy when they are reduced. Hoping to be at St Annes this weekend but some problems with the new van-no surprises there. Enjoy this better weather-Inplanted sweet oeas today so hope there are no cold nights.

    1. Hope your van troubles are sorted before the weekend, the weather is supposed to be nice, but not too hot which is very good to hear.

    1. Thank you, so many food posts look so perfect, and like a right load of faff, I don't really like cooking so like to share something fairly simple!

  8. panko covered squash looks yum, and the mushrooms! It is very hard to find dairy free ice cream here.

    1. The squash is so nice, just squash, coated in a gram flour and water mix then rolled in some seasoned breadcrumbs and shoved in the oven.

      Other than at the supermarket or Holland and Barrett it's not easy to find dairy free ice cream here either. The ice cream van we visited at the weekend was up from Manchester for an event, so tastings will be few and far between!
