June On My Spoon

I keep forgetting to snap food as I'm fitting everything in between World Cup 2018 matches, but here are a few things we've been eating recently. 

I don't think I've shared this before, spiced squash soup with a lovely pitta made by Dan. 

Obligatory noodles, can't remember how this was flavoured as it was a while ago, but I used the Tofoo brand tofu as it was on special offer, very nice, no pressing required.

Roast sweet potatoes with assorted veg and seeds, I can't quite remember what's in the pepper. Oooh, I think it might be some Linda McCartney meatball-style balls squished up and mixed with tomato sauce. If that's what it is then they were tasty, but a bit too meaty for me. 

This looks less interesting than it was as I kept everything separate. Roast veg and avocado with a packet of tomato and basil quinoa we picked up for 50p from Jack Fulton (discount frozen food shop) when we were in Colne. This was dried, not frozen, a nice quick meal. Things in this shop can have a short date, hence the prices but they get some good stuff I visit whenever I'm near one of these shops, we don't have one here. 

Messy avocado and houmous salad sarnie. 

Saturday brunch, Tofoo tofu scramble - delicious. Am I saying delicious a lot again?


Ravioli, this is spiced butternut squash filled ravioli by Dell' Ugo, we bought it from Waitrose. We added some tomato sauce and a drizzle of garlic oil. It was absolutely gorgeous, the texture of the filling was ideal, and although it wasn't cheap, it's something I would never make so I don't mind buying it every now and then. 

Waffles! I made waffles for the first time, I actually think it may have been the first time I've eaten a waffle, unless you count the Birds Eye Potato Waffles that were a staple in our house when I was little. These are topped with some mango nice cream (I also made that) plus cacao nibs and cashew caramello. I used this Loving It Vegan recipe for the waffles. Is now the time to talk about my amazing sandwich toaster? My sandwich toaster has removable plates, we bought the waffle plates as an extra and they are brilliant! As well as waffles and toasties we can also make omelettes and pies in the little machine. AMAZING!Well, amazing if you're a lazy cook and a lover of carbs like me!


  1. Your food always looks so good. I love butternut squash and need to find some of those pasta parcels if I can. Thomas kept Birds Eye in business during his potato waffle period! xx

    1. Thank you. I have seen this brand of pasta at Booths and other places but I've only seen the squash one at Waitrose.

  2. I can never seem to make decent waffles. Yours look wonderful.

    God bless.

    1. Thanks Jackie, I was delighted they turned out so well.

  3. I have a waffle maker, but rarely make waffles - I'm going to try that recipe, thanks!
