I figured I better get In My Kitchen up for December, given I’ve missed so many months.
I use these dark chocolate chips from Costco but next time I go to Costco I’ll look for the other dark chocolate they sell, which has had good reviews:
I did a big shop up at Lien Hoa Tam in Braybrook, which used to be called Global Green Vegetarian Food Mart. They sell a heap of mock meats, dried soy, vegan confectionary, vegan cheeses, pies and more. This lemon chicken is nice, quite sweet though, but when I crisp it up in the oven I keep going back for ‘one more piece’:
I haven’t tried this vegan bbq pork yet but I think it’s the same sort that Vietnamese places use in their vegan bahn mi rolls and dishes:
Life is good when there are tofu puffs in the house:
I love these Greenfarms steamed buns, you can get a few different varieties at Lien Hoa Tam:
I tried these black bean beetroot burgers which were okay, the family weren’t keen though:
Not in my kitchen, but an identical version used to be in my grandmother’s kitchen! This retro pineapple fruit-nut stand was at Brunswick Savers. The pineapple on the top is supposed to have the wooden spikes coming out, you can see these in the bottom tier. I was half tempted to get it but figured that I’d decided not to have my grandmother’s for a reason:
This is my latest cookbook purchase. I love Vegan Richa’s Indian Kitchen, which I reviewed here. I haven’t actually read through this new book yet. I can only look at new cookbooks when I have complete silence and ‘me time’:
And now the Christmas rush begins. We don’t have a tree because of the cats. We can’t even have a vase of flowers or a Christmassy decoration because the cats will destroy everything. That suits me though as it means less putting-stuff-away later.
In My Kitchen is a monthly blog link up that is currently being hosted by Sherry at Sherry’s Pickings. I’m submitting this blog post of mine for December 2017. While not a vegan-specific event, anyone can join in and you can also discover new blogs, recipes, products, etc!
