The animal-free answer to tuna?


Wheat biscuits, soya milk, blueberries


Berries are great for an early morning sugar boost and wheat biscuits are helpful for providing long-lasting energy.


Braised tofu, tomato and vegan mayo sandwich, biscuits, blueberries


Braised tofu has a texture and flavour that really reminds me of tuna. You can buy it in Holland and Barrett, but it’s with the other tinned products (not in the chilled section with the rest of the tofu). Once it’s rinsed and drained, you can break off slices, place them on bread and add whatever you feel like, although I think sliced tomatoes and vegan mayo work especially well. Vegan mayo can also be purchased in H&B, and it’s almost indistinguishable from the animal-based product.



Couscous with sultanas and butternut squash, salad


This recipe is still under construction but will be appearing in the future! It made a perfectly good meal, but further work is needed for optimum results. Not all recipes transition smoothly from mind to plate and this one turned out to be a little on the bland side.


Fruit and yogurt dessert


Alpro seem to  have brought out some new flavours of soya yogurt, including the strawberry and banana one that I had tonight. I just topped it with some raspberries, added a drizzle of golden syrup and it made a great dessert.
