My tofu is a jerk.

I can’t believe that it’s been nearly 8 months since I posted a recipe, where on earth has that time gone? A lot has happened since then! And I haven’t stopped cooking either. I’ve still been dreaming up and tinkering with recipes, eating out, and taking lots of foodie photos (Seriously. SO many food photos. Hundreds. Some have gotten to the stage of “Wow! That looks amazing! ..what the hell was that?”). So expect some photo-catch up posts at some point!
Whilst I haven’t stopped cooking, I did lack the drive to potter over here and actually write it all down. I’m feeling a bit more inspired now though, so let’s try to get back into this!

Vegan Mofo – Comforting vegetable & chickpea soup

Good evening! I’m finally -kinda- able to blog again! I’m currently borrowing my partners laptop (which thankfully hasn’t died on me yet!) to type this, so fingers crossed! I have discovered that his laptop doesn’t like my phone.. so I’ve figured out that by uploading the photos to my blog on my phone, I can then edit them using my partners laptop! Phew! I WILL find a way!

The night before yesterday, I had put on a huge pot of chickpeas to cook overnight in my slow cooker. I’d looked into my pantry and had been disheartened to find I only had one tin of chickpeas left! I love chickpeas and use them every week, so I was a little heartbroken.. until I noticed I had several bags of dried chickpeas lurking in my pantry! Problem solved! In they went to cook overnight, so by the morning I had gorgeous, perfectly cooked chickpeas just begging to be used.

Since it was a bit of a chilly day, I thought what better way to use some of the chickpeas, than in a soup!
