I have not been blogging... but I have been eating!

Right- here come a load of food pictures!

Fajitas! This was made with kidney beans in a chilli sauce, chopped tomatoes and some soya mince- It was yummy!

More beans! This was kidney beans in a tomato sauce, red peppers and some chopped up vegan sausages! I served it over brown rice and it was tasty!

Pasta- always a regular feature of my meal repetoire! This was a spaghetti bolognaise made with soya mince and a tin of passata sauce. I enjoyed it mucho!

Next up is a tofu stir fry made with lots of veggies, some firm style tofu and some soy sauce. I didn't have any noodles so I used pasta! It wasn't quite as good as with noodles but they weren't too bad a substitute!

I am rather embarassed to post this picture of my dinner but it was very tasty despite how it looks! I am not very experienced with baking pies so I burned them on the top (because I attempted to grill them rather than bake them in the oven) then I was getting really hungry so decided to take them out of the oven and microwave them- hence why one fell apart!

Nevertheless they were nice and moist with not too much pastry and were not greasy at all. I wasn't sure what to serve them with but I fancied something with a contrasting flavour so cooked a tin of chopped tomatoes to accompany them. I would eat them again- although would remember that they are probably not the best thing to prepare when I am really hungry because of how long they take to cook (over 30 minutes in total which is a long time for me!)

Ah- I saved the best for last. This chocolate delight was baked by my wonderful mum for my sister's 18th birthday. It is a self-saucing chocolate pudding and really easy to make- I will ask my mum to give me the recipe so that I can post it later on!

It is not originally a vegan recipe but is easy to veganize because it does not contain any eggs and the only other non-vegan ingredients are butter and milk (soya margarine and soya milk work just fine!). It was all gone within seconds of serving it- and my sister, my dad and I all had second helpings!

Finally this is a picture of my little sister looking at her yummy pudding!
