Vegan Carrot Cake Porridge

Vegan Carrot Cake Porridge

OK so I’m finally really, really, for realsies embracing autumn now. I’ve put fairylights next to the fridge. There are little ornamental pumpkins sat by the window behind the stove. We watched both The Deathly Hallows Pt 1 and The Deathly Hallows Pt 2 on the trot last night. The next logical step? Cake for breakfast. Yes, if we’re going to be inside and damp and miserable, we might as well just constantly treat ourselves. That’s the way this season goes. Never ending self indulgence to make up for how sodding dark it is. In my defence, this porridge isn’t even really that cakey. I’ve not added sugar – apart from the sultanas and mixed peel – and I’m sure it’s probably a relatively sensible first meal, what with the chopped nuts and the oats that’ll slowly release energy throughout the day. I mean I won’t look into its nutritional value too keenly for fear of disappointment, but there are certainly less healthy starts to the day than this. This recipe is coming at you …

Breakfast Split Peas with Fried Egg, Soured Cream and Dill

I’m hoping that with my all new consistent blogging routine will come a more natural reflection of the food I’m eating day to day. This is a breakfast I’ve been enjoying for a couple of weeks now. Therefore, thanks to its regular appearance on my Instagram stories, a recipe for it has been requested enough times to warrant my writing one. While it’s not super quick and easy and edible on-the-go like the most popular and pinnable recipes on the internet, it is very delicious and super filling thanks to all the protein in that eggs/pulses combo. The habit I’ve gotten into here is cooking my batch of split peas on Sunday night using homemade chicken stock from the roast dinner, popping it in the fridge and then reheating throughout the week. It uses two pans in the morning and takes about ten to fifteen minutes door to door, so it’s more for the ‘get up early and blow dry my hair and have a proper breakfast’ folk than it is for the ‘roll out …

Veganuary Vegan Breakfast

The Full English-Ish

One of the things I’m growing to love most about this blog is that it serves as evidence of my improvement in pretty much every life category as time goes by. If you look at the relatively pitiful offering I gave as an example of a vegan cooked breakfast last year, you’ll see that what I’m talking about. Doesn’t the 2016 Cate kill it in the breakfast department in comparison? Who knows, maybe next year I’ll have developed the actually perfect vegan breakfast. One that truly rivals 2 eggs, 3 bacon and 2 sausages with a side order of delicious delicious fried bread. For now though, lets take a look at this relatively low key, basically healthy, but 100% filling and satisfying, cooked breakfast. Cutting potatoes up into tiny cubes and frying them until golden brown has become a more than weekly habit of mine, is that a bad thing? I’m almost certain that it’s frowned upon in some circles. Anyway, you get your crispy fatty salty goodness from those. The baked baby chestnut mushrooms …
