The thing I was most intrigued to try was the ‘chicken’ tiki masala, made with vegan Quorn pieces. A number of local Indian restaurants have started to think about labelling vegan options on their menu, but as yet no one else is offering us something using mock meat. The dish didn’t disappoint.
Cake has been a necessity during this period of staying home, and while the local delivery choices have been slightly limited by our location on the very edge of Oxford, I’ve been enjoying the delights of nationwide delivery from vegan bakers far and wide.
I was so excited to see Taste Tibet launch their online shop, delivering to homes around Oxford on Thursday-Sunday evenings. They will be a familiar face to anyone who’s visited Gloucester Green market, and they’re also a staple on the festival circuit around Oxfordshire and beyond.
The Naturally Sassy cookbook by Saskia Gregson-Williams is one of the older plant-based recipe books in my collection, published in 2015. It was a fairly new release when I started my vegan journey, and one that truly helped me find enjoyment in cooking after a period of having a difficult relationship with food.
