While up in Scotland in summer 2017, we paid Edinburgh a quick visit. It was super busy, due to the festival, and we were super hungry. We wanted to go somewhere nice with decent vegan options, so we looked on Happy Cow and found that there was a Dishoom in Edinburgh. We’d not been to Dishoom before, but some of our friends had really loved visiting the London branches. So we thought why not give it a go? Read on to find out what I chose from the vegan menu, and what I thought of it.
These vegan biscuits made with Whittard’s orange and cardamom instant matcha tea* are easy to make and taste delicious. The matcha, combined with the taste of the orange and cardamom give a fruity, floral flavour, making them the perfect accompaniment to a cuppa, or to be served when guests are visiting. You really need to try baking them for yourself!
Ben & Jerry’s have really stolen part of my vegan heart since they launched their non-dairy ice creams in September 2017. So when I received the invite to their first non dairy Scooper Club (see what they did there?!), I knew I HAD TO GO. The evening’s menu was to be devised by Gaz Oakley (AKA Avant-Garde Vegan), and Pixie from Plant Based Pixie, and I had my assumptions that the food would be based around the Ben & Jerry’s non-dairy flavours, but I was already trying to figure out what the food would involve.
Whether you’re looking for something vegan friendly to solve a hangover, or want to put together a delicious dish that’s quick and easy, as well as tasty and filling, you need to make this tasty vegan mushroom bolognese.
Pollokshields is home to the most ethnically diverse street in the whole of Glasgow, so there was no arguing that we’d be finding some of the best Panjabi food that we’ve tasted in quite a while! And we found it at Ranjit’s Kitchen, on Pollokshaws Road. Ranjit’s Kitchen serves vegetarian cuisine – you won’t be finding any meat at this place! So how does it fare for vegan food? We decided to give it a try…
