Fed up of the Vegetarian alternative at a BBQ being Mushrooms or worse Soya based? Then look no further because July is #FreefromBBQs month and here is my beautiful contribution… #FreeFromBBQs: BBQ Apricot & Nectarine ‘Steak’ Salad. The ‘steak’ in this case being lightly charred stone fruits, delicately flavoured with Lemon Thyme from No17. The texture of the fruit ‘steaks’ makes them a great meat alternative and no soy or mushrooms in sight! It is perfect for any summer get together with friends or family as it is Eggfree, Glutenfree and soyfree. This would also make a delicious centrepiece to a vegan BBQ spread, by swapping the Feta for soyfree, vegan cheese!
Dairy Free, Vegan Apple & Date Muffins great for picnics or mid afternoon pick me ups alike! Soft, spicy muffins full of juicy apple chunks and chewy date pieces all topped off with pretty apple slices. Lovely with added hazelnuts for crunch or your favourite seed mix to keep them nut free. The recipe also works perfectly with Gluten free Flours so no-one need miss out!
Dairy Free Asparagus & Cheese Scones with their delicate asparagus slices, pockets of melty cheese and pretty little flecks of green chives are a beautiful variation on a vegan cheese scone. Delicious, fluffy, savoury scones, worthy of any luxury vegan afternoon tea. Use goats cheese (or dairy free alternative) for a sharper flavour or add finely diced red onion for extra colour! Best eaten warm while the cheese is still melty, stuffed with more dairy free cheese and a caramelised red onion chutney or good old pickle.
