Tell me, what is the recipe

March 16, 2013

Earlier in the week I wanted to make something light and simple, but which had tons of flavour. This recipe worked a treat! The whole dish took less than 30 minutes to make, and felt super summery even though it was still chilly outside. I added a handful of pinenuts and sliced some garlic in at the last minute, and served it up with a salad, a blob of garlic mayonnaise and a blob of houmous.

Maple Spice has been one of my favourite bloggers for around five years now – her recipes are consistently innovative, interesting and most of all – YUM! Between Trout and I, we’ve made her ravioli, baked almond feta (which we enjoyed here), banana white chocolate muffinscurried courgette soup and best of all – turkey deli slices, which were brilliant. We remade these again this week, but switched up the spices to turn it into pepperoni – even better!

I also love reading through her food diary, Maplespice Eats. It constantly inspires me with new ways of working her brilliant recipes into day-to-day eating, as well as giving me ideas for lunches which I had long forgotten about. This site is especially good for new vegans – if you’re starting out it’s such a great way of giving you meal ideas and introducing you to loads of products which you might not have known were vegan.

Today we’re off to Vegfest in Hove – I’m so excited! It’s always so much fun to discover new vegan companies, grab a few discounted bargains, try plenty of samples and stock up on cupcakes. Then we’re going to my parents’ to celebrate a belated Mother’s Day. I’m super excited to see everyone – especially our two dogs!

What plans do you have for the weekend?
Have you made anything from Maple Spice’s blog? If not, why not!

      Aww thankyou darling! I’m craving pizza too, haha – when we were making the pepperoni I said to Trout, ‘you know what this means – we’ll HAVE to have pizza…!’ x
