Warning: This post is photo-less. You may suffer sever boredom. Should this occur, please close this website immediately and watch yodelling tutorials on youtube.My photo-editing skills still need some serious work, so the collage I had planned for today’s post won’t be happening. If you know of any good GIMP-picture-editing tutorials, please do give me a shout.
Instead, I’ll introduce you to my five favourite vegan cupboard items. I’m reluctant to call them my ‘favourite’ because I change favourites every two seconds, but here’s what’s been landing in my shopping basket fairly regularly:
Alpro Soya Almond Milk: I’m not a huge fan of soya milk unless it’s been strongly flavoured, and this is a great alternative. It tastes very mild, isn’t grainy at all and is perfect for cooking, baking & on cereal. Being soya-free, it’s also an option for people with allergies.
ViveSoy Cappucino: This is one of the few soya milks that I do drink. I know it’s loaded with sugar and very unhealthy, but it tastes like a coffee milkshake and it’s such a lovely treat.
Puy Lentils: I love using lentils as a substitute for mince, especially now that Tesco have stopped selling my favourite frozen veggie mince! Puy Lentils are especially nice because they’re a bit more flavourful and tender than other varieties.
SO Organic Kidney Beans: I love Sainsbury’s Organic beans because they come in cardboard cartons instead of tins, which makes me feel less guilty. I love all types of beans, but I think kidney beans are my favourite. Maybe because I associate them with burritos?
Suma Organic Italian Pesto Alla Siciliana: Vegan Pesto! Yay! This is awesome on pasta and toasties, especially when we’re too tired to make a ‘proper’ dinner. Just make sure you don’t confuse it with the Genovese variety, the jars look almost identical, but that one contains cheese.
I’m sorry this post is a bit bland, technology and I really didn’t work out this time :(.
