#vegansausages theme 3rd April 2014

Hello again all!

Welcome to another little round up of some recipes from #veganrecipehour. it was a another enjoyable night.

I have to admit to a little self indulgence with this theme! I’m a big fan of Vegan sausages and have recently started to make my own using this wonderful recipe. But, I have used Okara instead left over from making soya milk/tofu at home.

They come out looking like that and are VERY tasty! Have a go! Its worth it!

It was also clear that many of you have a soft spot for Linda McCartney sausages. I always have some of these in the freezer! I use them quite a lot for inexpensive dinners. Some examples are an ‘All day Breakfast fritatta‘, Roles into ‘meatballs’ in this ‘Kale and Chickpea stirfry‘ Or how about making your own vegetable sausages? try these ‘Summertime veggie sausages‘ Yum!

Better than this huh… ‘So what ingredients really go into your Hot Dog?’

Sometimes we all need a bit of comfort food dont we?! So, how about taking a look at this ‘Sausage and Bean Shepherds pie’ recipe from @veggiesandvegans Mouthwatering!

This recipe for ‘Two bean and leek sausages’ proved to be very popular. thank you to all who suggested it and thank you for creating it @Gourmetvegan ! Another recipe to make your own is from @Isachandra and PPK Simple Italian sausages‘ look awesome!

What about a ‘sausageroll’? Doesnt that have to contain meat?! NOPE! definately not! have a look at these tasty ideas! This one is from @yogivegetarian. It used TVP mince and Yellow mung beans.Very tasty! Another lovely idea came in from @paulyoud Who has created sausage rolls using bread dough. Lovely hey!

This recipe from @NiaChubba.amazing! .. ‘yeast free stuffed crust pizza’! created using ‘Dees Wholefood‘ sausages. this is also #glutenfree! Wow!

The great thing about having #vegansausages is that many traditionally none vegan recipes can be altered simply to become a veganised version. such as a Vegan ‘Toad in the hole‘ or this megga simple ‘sausage casserole’.

If you are currently making the transition to being Vegan or if you are incorporating more vegan food, it doesn’t mean you have to ‘loose’ your favourite meals. The vegan community is amazing and will always find a way!

Please have a look at the nights tweets for more ideas and shared recipes! I will leave you with this cartoon…it sums it up really!!Image

Yummy…….. :o/

#veganbreakfast theme 13th March 2014

Thursday 13th March #veganrecipehour theme was all about the #Veganbreakfast!

It was a 100% mouthwatering affair with many scrumptious suggestions that left my belly rumbling!

I personally like to have Muesli for week day breakfasts. I mix different sized oats and add whatever seeds, nuts, dried fruits I have at the time. Keep it in a big bag and have a handful with some Soya or Almond milk each morning. The weekend is a different matter! In our house we like to have a ‘special’ breakfast on at least one of the days. Tofu scramble is a top choice with maybe a sausage or two or mushrooms etc. Or maybe some home made crumpets with home made jam yum yum! On a warmer day maybe some ‘overnight oats’ with fresh fruit. To be honest the choices are endless and all as totally tasty as each other. We vegans are spoilt for choice! A tasty vegan #crueltyfree Breakfast? What better way to start the day!

Here is a selection of the amazing recipes and ideas from he night itself.

Smoothies proved to be a popular way to start the day. A handy tasty drink packed full of goodness! (Be careful of the sugar content if you are adding sweetness) We had some yummy suggestions, here is a selection:

Heavenly Organics @heavenlyskin suggested this tasty smoothie:

‘Breakfast smoothly 1 organic banana organic& 1/3 tin mango & coconut mylk to desired consistency. Whizz up. Delicious’

Thank you to @vegsoup4thesoul  who told us how they like to start the day with:

‘Fave b’fast smoothie: almond milk, soya yoghurt, bananas, walnuts, agave syrup 🙂 Throw it all in, blitz’

Thank you to @theFlexitarian for this totally tropical suggestion! ‘Tropical protein smoothie’

On a similar theme how about this ‘Easy ‘Banana Milk’ recipe (for cereal) from @PotatoStrong  who also suggested this yummy ‘Fat free wholewheat Pancake’ recipe.

Raw breakfast ideas? How about this one? ‘Apple cinnamon porridge‘ and a fascinating like to ‘raw vegan butter‘ thank you @RawVeganista for that suggestion.

Another Porridge suggestion from @TheFlexitarian but this time, its for ‘Quinoa Porridge‘ with banana and walnuts. Yum!

Check out this mammoth sized Breakfast from @VeganDicso! Cor blimey! I’d give it a good go! They also shared this photograph!  ‘Fry up. ‘Shrooms, Avocado, Tomato, Kale & a couple of Lindas  I have to admit, I really like Linda McCartney sausages and find them pretty versatile. What’s even better is that they are frequently on offer in the shops! #veganonabudget! Tempeh is gorgous for a breakfast, here it is wonderfully demonstrated.Thank You! Food to make your Mouth water!

Another tasty cooked breakfast from @FlavourPhotos ‘ Scrambled tofu with vegan chorizo, spring onions and tomatoes’ Who helpfully added a little advice on making scrambled Tofu:

Add salt, pepper, garlic- granules or fresh, paprika, tiny bit of turmeric for colour and anything else you like!’

Another suggestion for a #tofuscramble recipe came from @PotatoStrong  Who likes to add peppers and Onions to his. @theFlexitarian adds #Nutritionalyeast to theirs.

How tasty does this look and sound!? ‘Crispy potato Rosti with Herby bean mash tweeted by @NaturalFuelBlog. Gorgeous!

Thank you to @PaulsMaier for this suggestion of ‘Best Healthy Breakfast cookies‘ Sticking with a sweet theme, these ‘Heavenly Hazelnut pancakes‘ look like they live up to their name! Thank you @vegsoup4thesoul! Be sure to have a browse through their ’30 #Vegan breakfast ideas to get out of bed for!’ What a sacrifice that must have been, eating all of that food hey! Hehe!

‘Banana Pancake‘? Ah, seeing as you are offering! @myfridgie shared his recipe for ‘Sweet jam pockets’
