5 Vegan Things I liked This Week (Quorn, Lush Sun, Vitalite, Ackee, Organic Agave)
Quorn has been on the market for years but has not been suitable for vegans in the past because the original recipe contains eggs. I am aware that many vegans have been asking the manufacturers to make a vegan version and finally it is here. Yaaay for vegans everywhere :0)... I am not sure of the stockists but I have heard it is available in Asda supermarket.
I bought this fragrance from Lush this week. The smell is reminiscent of sunshine, summertime, beaches and holidays. I like the story behind their scents and this one was created to give us a lift during the dreary winter months we have to endure here in the UK.... Thank you for the sunshine we can enjoy all year round in the UK
3. I love this vegan friendly butter. Not only is it good to spread on your bread etc. it is also good when baking especially when you are making pastry.
Vitalite - vegan friendly butter
4. For those of you who have never heard of ackee, it is a wonder fruit that is eaten like a vegetable. You can have this with breadfruit, roasted vegetables, and even use it in vol-au-vent. This is very popular in Jamaica and is usually made with slat fish. However I have made a veganised version that keeps all the taste, flavour and spices but eliminated the fish.
5. I am trying to give up processed sugar. I have a sweet tooth so its going to take me a while. I have discovered this organic agave which is a great alternative to sugar. I used it when I made raisin bread this week. I am usually not a great fan of agave as it has a funny after taste that I don't like. This organic one does not have that dodgy after taste, so I will be buying it again...(I just added it to my shopping list)
