Compassionate Living Fayre Food!

Compassionate Living Fayre Summer '09
Sat 25th July 09. 10.30am – 5.30pm
St Augustine's Church Hall, George IV Bridge, Edinburgh

I've been busy baking for the Scottish Vegans' Stall for this fayre(details above) tomorrow- the picture above is a very large stockpot full of cake batter as my usual big pyrex mixing bowl still wasn't quite big enough to fit multiple portions in at once!
Here are the finished cupcakes all ready to go- it's the Jelly Donut cupcakes from Veganomicon, and I've also made some Chewy Raisin Oatmeal Cookies from the same book (same ones as I made last week for the potluck, but following the recipe properly this time so without the cranberries!).

Reggae Reggae Review and Potluck Food!

Although I haven't blogged since the last potluck a month ago, I am still alive- just been busy doing loads of overtime at work! Anyway, I'm taking this curry and these cookies, pictured above, to the Yahoo! Scottish Vegans potluck at Penny's tomorrow.

The curry is based on this vegan society leaflet recipe, but instead of using ordinary chickpeas, I've used brown Kala Chana chickpeas(they're Pride tinned, and I got them in Morrisons' ethnic foods aisle) and IMHO they're nicer than regular ones!

The cookies are Veganomnicon's Chewy Raisin Oatmeal cookies, and I've mixed up dried cranberries with the raisins, and added double the spices for extra spiciness!
This here is tofu and onions in Reggae Reggae cooking sauce, served with rice and peas. I've loved all the varieties of Reggae Reggae Sauce I've tried so when I saw their new cooking sauces, on offer in Morrisons' at 2 for £3, I bought them to try! It's a bit pricey, even when offer, but I loved this one too- very, very spicy but is absolutely delicious, and very similar to their ketchup sauce in taste. 9/10

Review for the Caribbean Curry variety coming up soon!
