IMBB#19: I cant believe I ate Vegan!
So why are there 3 meals up there? Well I was sick of being the only lazy arsed blogger who only submits one food item, that's why! So I figured 3 is a respectable amount :) I do have one small, tiny, miniscule confession to make... they are all from the one cookbook! *gasp* But true to form I could not leave well enough alone and I did fiddle with them... maybe, just alittle.
So what book is this? Well I am very happy to say that it was written by a friend of mine :) Who is a very, lovely sweet chef name Aine Mc Ateer and the recipes are from her book Recipes to Nurture. I have been helping Aine to test recipes for her next cookbook which has been great fun, and really exciting!!!
So how did this all fall under the I tricked some one to eat Vegan context? Well it was actually 3 seperate trickeries, how good is that?
The lentil pasties we had for dinner tonight. They were great, Casey loves pasties and all I told him was that we were having Pasties for dinner ;) I served them with some rocket salad and tamarind chutney ( If this wasn't a Vegan meal some cucumber Raita would be perfect ;) ) We drank some White Shiraz with these guys which was PERFECT!!! The white Shiraz was a nice deep pink, off dry but still fruity. YUMMMMMM
Last Night we enjoyed the Creamy Corn Chowder for dinner. This soup was so thick and sweet and creamy Casey had no idea that it was Vegan. He asked if it would be ok to have another bowl with all the cream in the soup! HA! :) He had 2 HUGE bowlfuls which makes Clare a very happy girl.
The Chocolate Bliss Cake was enjoyed on the weekend as Sunday Afternoon tea with my Auntie, it was perfect! We had half a mini bundt each and were soooo satisfied but still felt great and not like we had overindulged at all. Do not be fooled, this is a moist chocolatey, nutty cake that no one would EVER belive is vegan ;)
The other important thing to note is that even though there is no dairy no meat there is also no refined carbs, no refined sugar, less saturated fat. So how do I feel after all of this food? GREAT! Better than I have in ages.
Thanks Sam for inspiring healthy tasty delicious IMBB recipes... rather than my usual efforts to outdo myself in the decadence stakes :)
