A Sunday roast with a difference

First of all, apologies for the lack of pictures. I don’t have my camera with me and can’t upload them. They will be added at a later date!

Breakfast

Sesame seed bagel with jam, mango, melon

Although they’re great with vegan ‘cream cheese’, sesame seed bagels are also ideal for jam. I find it’s always nice to have a bit of fruit for breakfast as it helps to give you a reasonably healthy sugar boost.

Lunch

Roast vegetable tortillas, lime and ginger dip, salad, tortilla chips, hummus

Roasting vegetables is a great way to create a plant-based Sunday roast. If you prefer something closer to the meat-based version, Redwood do a vegan celebration roast which comes complete with ‘sausages’, ‘bacon’ and ‘gravy’, all in animal-free form. I’ve never tried it but it looks pretty good. You can order one at Goodness Direct (please click here to see).

The lime and ginger dip is really lovely for drizzling over the top of the tortillas.  It’s seriously easy to make- you just add about 2 tsp of lime juice to around 100 g vegan mayonnaise along with around 1 tsp of finely grated  root ginger. It’s satisfyingly tangy and refreshing. You can buy vegan mayonnaise from Goodness Direct or from various health food stores. This was the Plamil brand, which also makes great vegan chocolate.

Dessert

Strawberries, fig and dark chocolate

You can’t go wrong with the combination of fresh fruit and dark chocolate. The fresh figs were left over from Friday, as they seemed to have appeared in Tesco and are a really unusual and lovey tasting fruit.
