Happy Rabbie Burns Night! Vegan haggis FTW!

And to celebrate we had a tradtional dinner of vegan haggis of course(Macsweens brand- 4/5, I love it!) along with creamed neeps(that's turnip, aka swede or rutabaga, mashed up with a little Oatly cream), and VWaV roasted garlic brussels' sprouts. Yummy, and not just for Burns' night! Here's a close up view...
Yesterday I made Veganomicon's Prospect Park Potato Salad to have alongside my signature dish of tofu "quiche". It was a nice potato salad and I'd certainly make it again, but next time I'll cut down on the vinegary as I found it a bit stronger than I'd have liked.
For this dessert, I was inspired by a certain irritating TV chef's ad for a supermarket which you might be familiar with, where he uses natural yogurt, honey and dried cranberries to make a dessert. I veganized it by using Alpro Soya natural yogurt, and agave nectar to replace the honey. The cranberries are really sugary so Jay just had the yogurt and nectar since he's diabetic, while I sprinkled some on top. This is tasty and fairly healthy as desserts go!

That looks much tastier than that in the ad on TV!
