To make…

Cook the pasta.

While the pasta is cooking fry the onion in a frying pan, then add the bacon, then turn the heat down and add the cream.

Add the pasta (once cooked) to the frying pan, then sprinkle as much Nutritional Yeast into it as you want as it will make it cheesey, and add lots of nutritional value to the meal :)

Add some pepper (and salt if you want to)

And there you have it! Very quick, very easy, very lovely And very Kind to animals and our planet :)

Vegan Tomato Pasta

As with most of the recipes I’ll post, I’ll try to keep them as simple as possible to show how blooming easy it is to eat a Vegan diet. I’ll post the ingredients I use but you can add/substitute your own veg, ‘fake meat’ (if you want to use any) or any herbs.

For this one, I used…

PastaMost dry pastas are vegan! Fresh pasta usually contains egg. Just check the table, egg will be highlighted in bold.

Tinned tomatoes.

Vegan BaconCheating brand.

Onion.

CheeseSheese, strong cheddar (melts really well).

So…

Cook the pasta.

While that’s cooking. Add onions to a frying pan, then the ‘bacon’, then the tomatoes, then the cheese.

When its all cooked… mix the pasta and the sauce together.

Put in to a bowl.

Grate a bit more cheese on.

Vegan ‘Tuna Mayo’

EEEEEAAAASEH EEEEEEAAASEH EEEEEAAAASEH!

It’s. So. Easy.

Please try this instead of eating our lovely Fish. Over fishing is KILLING our oceans and the mercury in tuna fish ain’t good for us at all!

Plus fish very much do feel pain.

This alternative isΒ bloody lovely and totally fills the gap if like me, Tuna Mayo is (was) a favourite sandwich! Plus, its chickpeas! Dead Healthy! (without any dead anything πŸ˜‰ )

What do ya need?

Chickpeas – I use a whole can

Vegan mayo – Use a good dollop… maybe two tbsp?

Wholegrain Mustard – A tablespoon

Ume Vinegar – 1.5 tbsp. I get mine from a local ‘world foods’ shop but its also in Holland and Barrett (uk)

Celery seeds – 2 tsps (or just sprinkle what you think that is like I do πŸ˜‰ )

Black pepper – just a whack a bit in there

What do ya do?

Stick it all in a food processor (or whatever you use to mix your food) If you don’t have one… just mash it up and get muscles ;).

And thats it!

Above, is all I do, you can add more ingredients if you want to… pickles, chilli flakes, cayenne pepper, celery etc. Its totally up to you, experiment with your foods… it makes it more fun!

the+perfect+tofu+scramble+#vegan+|+RECIPE+on+hotforfoodblog.com

INGREDIENTS

Tofu – as much as you want.

Oil – Whichever oil you want.

Salt and pepper.

That’s it! Simple!

For mine, I add Tumeric and Nutritional yeast (to make it cheesey)

Have a play around with your own preferred ingredients to make it just how you want it.

You can add, onions, peppers, tomatoes, anything you like! It depends what you are doing with it :)

You can add dairy free milk to make it creamier. You can do anything you would do with eggs only you aren’t contributing to the killing of baby male chicks or the abuse of hens πŸ˜‰

METHOD

The tofu will usually need pressing… so basically squeeze all the liquid out of it. I have a George Foreman grill so I use that and just press it down really hard.

Heat your oil in a frying pan.

Crumble the tofu in to it (if you are adding onions then sweat them down first, if you are adding any veg, add it now).

The tofu will start to dry out and cook.

Add any spices you want to put in and sprinkle some nutritional yeast on to it.

Serve up!

That’s it!

Enjoy! xxx
