There's been a lot of sweet treats on the blog in the last few posts so I thought today I'd feature some of the savoury things that we have been enjoying. Back in February we had a weekend in Nottingham. We were there to help a friend celebrate a special birthday and we also were also able to visit Sneinton vegan market which happens once a month. The market is brill but if you're ever planning a visit I would recommend getting there early. A lot of stalls had sold out by the time we arrived but we were so pleased that there was a couple of Vork pies left. These pies are amazing and win awards in pie competitions competing against meaty ones.
There's been great excitement in the UK as Quorn have launched vegan fish fingers. Here they are served on a traditional white bread butty with chips. I have to say I wasn't a fan. The breadcrumbs were good but the filling didn't do it for me, I found it a bit mushy. To be fair I never liked actual fish fingers that much so I think it's more of a personal preference that a fault with the product. Matt on the other hand loved them and several more boxes have found their way into the freezer.
A new product that I am keen on is Linda McCartney Scampi Bites. I loved scampi as a kid and these have translated very well into a vegan version. I've borrowed the picture here from the website as I forgot to take one but we had them with a marie-rose dipping sauce and salad. Yum, I can't wait to try these again.
In other Pie related news, The Pie Parlour (our local bakery that specialises in vegan and gf) continues to turn out excellent pies. In recent weeks we've had pulled jackfruit and these creamy roast veg ones. We had these with a medley of veg and parnisp + potato mash
Here's my vat of gravy with Matt's secret gravy ingredient next to it of Henderson's Relish.
Any other gravy lovers out there?
