In My Kitchen this month are a bunch of treats I received in the World Vegan Day Melbourne showbag. I was also gifted a goodies bag by Zomato with World Vegan Day and some of those treats are shown below.
Psssst! If you are in the US, I have a cookbook giveaway for Vegan Richa’s Indian Kitchen!
Let’s start with sweets! In My Kitchen there was *cough* Loving Earth Chocolate, The Red Balloon vegan jellies, raw bars by Bananinha and a coconut rough chocolate ball by Constant Craving. These were all gifted or included in the WVD showbag. I bought the Jokerz bar and the Cleo bar myself when standing in the Smith & Deli queue. I’m not really in to chocolate bars (and let’s face it, the vegan ones often cost like five million dollars) but I decided to try these.Â They were okay, a bit too sweet for my tastesÂ but at least I can say I’ve tried them 🙂
I receivedÂ everything in the next picture as part of the WVD show bag or the goodies bag that was gifted to me. I quite like the Rebel Kitchen mylks, they have a very small number of base ingredients (four, if I remember correctly). I’m looking forward to using the Organic Noodle Kitchen beetroot noodles (just need to find a dish that works well for them!). The Deli Thins wafers are very thin and nice with the Damona cheese I have (shown further down).
The Primal Strips vegan jerky was a gift. I’ve never tried vegan jerky and while I like the taste of Texas BBQ anything, these were a bit too chewy for me (I know, I know… it’s jerky. And a damn fine vegan jerky!). I bought the gochujang when standing in the Smith & Deli queue another day and pounced on it because there are some recipes in Street Vegan that call for it.
I saw these nectacots at a small market. I’m a sucker for any kind of name that is a slightly cringey amalgamation of two things (does anyone remember Woolworths and their short lived ‘scoffins’? A combo of scone and muffin? No? My kids want to join a banana with a plum so they can make a bum… Anyway.). I tried one and it was a little too bitter so I’ll leave the others for a while. In My Kitchen I also have this vegan pepperjack cheese by DamonaÂ Non-Dairy Cheeses, made locally here in Melbourne. We have quite a few great plant based cheeses here in Melbourne! And finally, In My Kitchen you will always find a happy, lazy cat!
In My Kitchen is a monthly blog link up hosted by Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial and Iâ€™m submitting this blog post of mine for November 2015. WhileÂ not a vegan-specific event,Â anyone can join in and you can also discover new blogs, recipes, products, etc! Thank you to Celia for hosting 😀
