Food prep for a few days away. :)
I’m spending a few days with a friend, now that she’s finished uni, which I’m super excited for - however I hate being a burden with food! I’m taking a few train journeys to see her so I’ll eat one salad then and leave one for tomorrow probably. I find others’ food prep interesting so here’s mine! :D
2x salads made with iceberg lettuce, red and yellow bell pepper, sugarsnap peas, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, grilled asparagus, leftover homemade pasta salad, mint couscous and tomato salsa;
1x ripe mango;
1x cocoa orange Nakd bar;
1x box of orange, lemon and lime tea bags;
2x single serving portions of gf porridge, made with rice, millet and buckwheat flakes (free from Vegfest!!).
Obviously this isn’t 3 days worth of food but it’s enough to not be a huge pest. ^_^

Dinner - spicy grilled tofu and mushrooms with cherry tomatoes, edamame, spinach, a side serving of broccoli and a peanut/orange sauce.
For the tofu I pressed a third of a block, chopped it in to 5 slices the put some cornstarch, cumin, ground coriander, nutritional yeast, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper on a plate, mixed it up and rolled each piece of tofu in the mix. Then I just sprayed the griddle pan a few times with a lil’ bit of oil and grilled away!
The dressing is simply a tsp of peanut butter, pinch of salt and some orange juice (which I microwaved for 20 seconds - they heat helps everything emulsify) and bam! Awesome dressing. :D

Courgette, basil and cheddar tart, baked lemony new potatoes and salad leaves from The Chapel. 
I went out for lunch today with a few friends for a birthday/leaving do - one of my best friends is leaving for a year to study in Utah! :(
At least the food was good, I suppose! It’s always nice when the vegetarian options don’t consist of yet another defrosted veggie burger or stuffed pepper! :)

Simple white wine and pea risotto with a roasted butternut squash and red pepper sauce, toasted pine nuts, a little ‘parmesan’ and rocket.
This went down really well! I completely made up the recipe but it was great. I cooked a big batch so it was dinner for my whole family - and even my carnivorous father emptied his plate! I never normally cook anything that tastes bad but even I was surprised with how nice it was, haha! Oh, and it’s 100% vegan, low fat and gluten free. :)
