Ahoy ahoy m’vegan chums, how was your weekend?
Ours was, for the most part, pleasantly lazy. I am experiencing ongoing broadband anxiety as I struggle to get BT to acknowledge that download speeds of less than 3mbps are NOT REALLY ACCEPTABLE in 2016 because I <3 the internet so, but we kept busy with making a nice dinner for a friend on Saturday night.
Taking inspiration from a recipe in my favourite Indian food, Prashad, I slow cooked these potatoes with tomatoes, red chillis, and a fried mixture of garlic, ginger, mustard seeds and some spices.
For this jackfruit curry I used a super recipe from Vegan Richa, using some lovely fresh plum tomatoes from our local grocers.
C prepared tofu with the MOST AMAZING PEANUT SAUCE EVER from Isa Does It. We stirred in some whole roasted peanuts too.
I used a simple recipe found online for this coconut dhal.
I also cooked some basmati rice with a little turmeric and a few cloves, and served it all up with some giant flat breads, again from our local grocer (which has an amazing selection of spices and sauces and all sorts of splendid Indian and Caribbean goodies).
All in all, a very pleasant feast! We otherwise mostly lazed about the place this weekend, aside from a little housework/Uni work/pooch walking and Meeting Mum For Lunch.
How about you, my blog chums? I sure hope you had a super weekend!
