Post-humous events

In what is possibly the most middle-class predicament I’ve ever found myself in, sainsburys have stopped selling taramasalata. It seems to be to make room for about 20 types of houmous and pointless shite like fava bean dip. How can I live without my favourite protein source? 

Duck! Egg

Today I finally got round to visiting Cafe Strange Brew in Shawlands. It’s a great as everyone says, and cheaper than Tapa (mind you, so are most places). My other half wanted to go to the hot dog place across the road, but I couldn’t bear sitting across from him with a pretend dog while he ate one of my favourite pre-veggie snacks. Anyway, the pic above shows my brunch of a flatbread topped with houmous and fried aubergine with a duck egg and pomegranate seeds. All in all pretty tasty! I’ll defo be back. 

Getting enough protein is becoming easier now that I have peanut butter on toast for breakfast pretty much every day. I haven’t cooked any of the Wholefoods stuff yet, not sure whether to use it like meat or do something different with it yet… 

The colour purpleĀ 

Today’s edition of Seitan Calls comes to you from the colour purple. This veggie cooking lark is a doddle! Even when I’m not really trying I manage to make nice stuff, it’s a bit like when I started playing the uke and I could write half-decent tunes as I wasn’t used to the key. 

Puy: you

This looks pretty horrible on the plate but was super tasty (honest). Just boiled Puy lentils in veg buillion and mixed up chopped red onion and aubergine with some garam masala, lime pickle and a bit of oil then roasted in the oven for 20 min. Doddle!
