I haven’t done a What I Ate in aaaaages. If you followed me during MoFo you probably got a fair idea of what I ate, thanks to the many (failed) experiments and leftovers I got to eat…
I’ve been doing a lot of juicing recently so a lot of what I’ve eaten looks like this:
I had loads of green juice. Juicing is funny. Some days, the thought of more green juice makes me want to barf. Other days, it’s all I want. And on other days, I can only handle a small amount of cooked food before I feel a little blergh and wish I had a juice instead. And I didn’t style this shot with the rainbow blocks on purposes, I had to hurry up and take a damn photo because one of the cats is a serial food photo bomber. Or stylist, or wannabe taste tester, as you will see further down:
I had made some satay style tofu and then had no idea what to do with it. This was a really lazy meal because I couldn’t be bothered chopping up veggies but I got some token green in at least:
I made the roasted potato and fennel soup from Isa Does It. I always leave Soups chapters until last when I buy a new cookbook and rarely go back to them, but this time I had a stack of fennel I needed to use up. This soup was fantastic and the roast fennel flavour was perfect. You wouldn’t guess it from the photo. I just wanted to eat it and not mess around with green bits and drizzles of oil!
I made a variation of the chickpea scramble. If you haven’t tried a chickpea scramble (with whole chickpeas that you moosh a bit) do it do it. Especially with black salt:
I finally made the Chandra Malai Kofta recipe from Isa Does It. The kofta and the sauce, made with cashew and coconut milk, are divine. I will be making this when I have people over for a meal! For myself, I’d leave the cashews and veg broth out of the sauce and go for a coconut cream base. I had so much of the sauce left over long after the kofta disappeared, so I added in some cubed roasted potatoes for another meal. Aaaand here’s my quality assurance manager. He’s one of those annoying bosses who shows up EVERYWHERE. And I mean everywhere:
Am I the only vegan on the planet who took forever to make the kofta recipe?!
