I love Gardein fish filets. They are just like the real thing and make great sandwiches too.
The other night I went to Subway for their VEGAN MALIBU GARDEN sandwich. Subway offers two vegan patties now, this one and a black bean patty. This one is my favorite. I have them pile on the mustard, BBQ sauce, lettuce, tomato, pickles, green peppers, onions, olives, jalapenos, pepperoncini, avocado and oil and vinegar! It's like eating a giant hamburger/sandwichy thing. SO good.

Super good lemon blueberry cake with almond essence. I had some quebec blueberries in the freezer and a lemon and a half. I thought, "Ok, I'll make Kittee's vanilla cake without the vanilla and use almond extract and add lemon and blueberries to it!" Except I couldn't find Kittee's recipe! I was flipping through my recipe binder for it and couldn't see it so I found a different recipe which was similar so I started building my ingredients that way. Halfway (after putting flour, sugar and baking soda/salt) into the bowl, I flipped back through my binder and found Kittee's recipe that was stuck to another page! So back to Kittee's recipe for the oil, lemon zest, liquid (almond milk/lemon juice) and extract. I noticed the differences between the two were that the former recipe used a teaspoon more of baking soda and Kittee's used more sugar and oil (yes!). Once I swirled in the little blueberries, in to the oven it went. What came out was this very well risen, soft, tender, not too sweet, light cake with a touch of lemon and delicious almond flavor. I was so happy with it. And to just make it more amazing, I put some vegan Coco Whip on top. So good with tea!

My fave chickpea salad made with chickpeas, ground almonds, celery, green pepper, red onion, vegan mayo, garlic powder, a bit of mustard and salt and pepper. It's truly delicious! I made a scrummy melt with whole grain bread and Daiya cheddar. It was so gooey and satisfying.

Another Happy Pear recipe! I adapted it to make it vegan. First I roasted hazelnuts, then whizzed them in my Blendtec with a little sunflower oil. I was so pleased my blender was able to get it pretty smooth.
Beautiful dahl recipe from The Happy Pear cookbook. I'm so in love with their food! I had to substitute a few things because I didn't have them. I used a garnet yam instead of butternut and kabocha squash. I know the squash would have been amazing. Didn't have pak choi so I used baby spinach.
