Today was International Hummus Day!
I don’t know about you, but for me, hummus is pretty much it’s own food group.
It goes Fruits, Vegetables, Protein, Carbohydrates, Fats, and Hummus, right?
So when I found out that there was a day dedicated to Hummus, I just knew I had to get involved!
Hello fellow MOFO-ers! I had intended on doing a nice long blog post today about the wonders and joys of cashew cheese (cue trumpet fan-fare and confetti). But alas, moving got in the way, and what with packing, cleaning and working (again!) I’m now getting very close to running out of day.. I really do need to start writing these things earlier on!
Good god, where has the day gone? I had planned on having a recipe post up today, but things have been so busy I haven’t had the chance! What with work, packing to move, tidying, cooking, and spending the evening taking our bed apart (it’s as fun as it sounds) I no longer have the time to post up a recipe, so it will have to wait until tomorrow. For now, I will just share some foodie photos from today!
I love Mexican food. The freshness, the zing, the spice. You just can’t beat it. Which is why I was a little annoyed when I realised that today was Cinco de Mayo, and I didn’t have a recipe prepared to share with you all! Oops! So here is a very quick, simple recipe for a zingy, fruity salsa!
Just a quick post for you all today! The other day, I fancied something a little more interesting to add to my salad than just veg..
Up until now, the main thing I’ve been eating which isn’t raw is hummus. There is just something so addictive about the simple blend of beans, garlic, lemon and tahini.. so much so, that I never thought anything could take it’s place.
Then, something came over me, and I decided to attempt a raw version at last..
I absolutely adore Halloween. The funky macabre decorations adorning the house (I think I have just as many, if not more, Halloween decorations as I do Christmas ones!), dreaming up weird and wonderful costume. Whether they be strange, cute, funny or scary, I love the process of coming up with a costumes (even if it is a last-minute rumage through the wardrobe to find something that will do!)
But above all, I love being able to go a little wild in the kitchen.. making foods that at any other time of the year would be deemed repulsive, creepy, and downright vile… At Halloween, anything goes!
Sometimes, a recipe will take weeks, maybe even months, and occasionally years to perfect. You’ll start off with an idea, or a vague notion of what might work. And you play around with it, tweaking it here and there, until finally you end up with what you dreamed up all those many days ago….
This may be an alien notion to some, but I’m actually not the biggest fan of ice cream. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I do like the stuff. But I generally find it’s a bit too rich for me. One or two bites and I’m done! Now sorbet on the other hand, I rather love.
Light, fruity and refreshing, what’s not to like? My favourite simple-sorbet is simply freeze raspberries and sliced peaches, and then blend them together.
Simple, sweet, and good for you too!
On my recent trip to Brighton, when I asked around for places I had to visit, one place which popped up was Boho Gelato, where we were told we could get some really nice vegan sorbets…
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been The Birthday Fairy. (A bit confusing perhaps, seeing as though this is Pixie Produce, but hey, on Sunday’s I’m a Unicorn, and I’ve always been crazy about dragons – I’m a whole fairy-tale rolled into one)
Spring time is one of my favourite times of the year. It starts to warm up (so no more worrying about, is it going to snow today? Are we going to have another supermarket raid as everyone panic-buys 20 loaves of bread?) And it’s also not too hot that, with the exception of curling up inside your freezer, there’s nothing you can do to escape the heat (Something that I’ve only ever experienced since living in Devon. In Wales, such heat is just a myth!)
