Vegan MoFo Day 20.

Nick had another day off work today and instead of being awesome and getting up to make him breakfast I lazed around in bed watching Pretty in Pink & he brought me breakfast in bed.


My usual breakfast, toast covered in Pure margarine, apple & mango juice & an Alpro peach & pear soya yoghurt - yum.

For lunch we'd planned to make the Seitan en Croute from 500 Vegan Recipes but it was getting late & we're going out for dinner so we decided to go for something a bit lighter. Nick choose the Lemon Garlic Pasta from Eat Drink & Be Vegan. In my mind this is more of a summer dish but hey, it's his week to choose so I wasn't going to argue - especially once I realised how easy the recipe is!

I just whisked together the ingredients...

I keep my salt in the little cupcake.

...and toasted the pine nuts whilst the spaghetti was boiling and then threw it all together!


I served this with a huge slab of tofu which I'd marinated in the lemon mixture & some olive oil & then pan fried, we also sprinkled on some nooch as the recipe suggested. This was delicious & I think we'll be making it again (in summer!), we loved the toasted pine nuts & I sprinkled some vegan parmesan on mine which made it even better.

Tonight we're going to my friend & fellow MoFo-er Kip's (from the totally awesome blog Messy Vegetarian Cook) house for a Thai feast, I can't wait! I won't lie it's partly because it means I get a night off from cooking but will still have delicious vegan food to MoFo about tomorrow!

  5. Hi Jo, just want to say how much I'm enjoying your Vegan MoFo posts. I think pretty much everything has looked delicious... you've inspired me to branch out a bit and try new ingredients! I've got a slap of tempeh in the fridge I'm not sure what to do with... Anyway, I've lurked on your blog for a long time and only recently got around to starting a blog of my own. Check it out if you fancy. There are a few vegan bits although no cooking posts yet.
