Recently I went to London for the weekend with the dude and we both wanted sushi for dinner, but were exhausted so got some to go and ate it at the hotel - hence the bad lighting/all round photography! It was only about 8 o’clock, London is just too rock ‘n’ roll for us…
Anyway, seen above:
- 8 Green Goddess Maki - wakame seaweed, cucumber, avocado, mizuna and chives rolled in aonori furikake,
- Faux Duck Pancakes - faux duck, spring onion, cucumber, Chinese pancakes and hoisin sauce,
- Pumpkin, Feta and Spinach Spring Rolls.
1 and 3 were mine - 1 was delicious and I should have just ordered two boxes of that! Sadly by the time #3 got to the hotel it was cold and just felt greasy. The dude’s pancakes were great with the sauce, very underwhelming without. Ah well, we still had a great time! ^_^
Breakfast - vegan ‘bake up’ at Inspiral Lounge, Camden Lock, London.
House made vegan bratwurst sausage, toasted rye bread with soya butter, grilled mushrooms and tomato, tofu scramble, house made baked beans and spicy hash brown.
This is my favourite breakfast of all time, unf. (My companion, also veggie, agreed!) I’ve had this once before when I came to London for my 18th birthday and ever since I’ve been dying to come back. I wouldn’t change a single thing on this plate - the baked beans are so much better than the canned variety, the tofu scramble is slightly crispy and flavoured perfectly and boy, that sausage. It’s so insanely close to real meat.
I’m going to have to learn how to make everything on this plate!

I’ve been a little lazy with my food lately so I’m trying to make sure every breakfast is something different, healthy and photogenic! :D

I had some chickpeas I had to use up so I mashed those, added apple sauce, grated carrot, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, buckwheat flour and a dash of maple syrup, mixed them all up and voila! It actually worked! I’ve never tried beans/pulses in anything sweet before but these pancakes were delicious, had a great texture and are packed with protein. :)
Banana French toast oatmeal with chocolate/almond/maple glaze, apricots, dried cherries and pumpkin seeds.
Oatmeal - steel cut oats, mashed ripe banana, cinnamon, unsweetened almond milk, vanilla and an egg whisked in at the very end.
Glaze - almond butter, melted 80% dark chocolate square, dash of maple syrup and some unsweetened almond milk. Yum! :D
