Vegan Christmas Sandwich

When I told the boys at the office that I was working on a vegan Christmas sandwich recipe, they all took the piss. Mercilessly. I don’t know what it is about the word ‘vegan’ that drives some people to immediate outrage. People have no chill. As regular readers know, I’m not vegan myself but do take part in Veganuary every year and have the utmost respect for those that choose a vegan lifestyle. They’re doing their bit for the planet and for animal welfare and I think that’s a pretty cool way to do life. So it grinds my gears when people take the mickey out of them, and it grinds my gears even more when people suggest that vegan food is shit. It’s really, really not. Vegans eat some of the filthiest, dirtiest, junkiest food there is. It’s entirely possible to make absolutely droolworthy food with just plant based ingredients. I, as an omnivore, wanted to prove this with a pornographic triple decker Christmas sandwich. Just as a two fingers up to anyone who …

Pesto Grilled Cheese for Cully & Sully Soups

This post is sponsored by Cully & Sully Back once again for some fried stuff with cheese. What can I say? The cold and the drizzle just do something to me. I need carbs and I need them buttered and fried on both sides. It’s November. It’s the law. When Cully & Sully challenged me to come up with a quick, easy recipe to perfectly complement one of their soups, what else was there but grilled cheese? Cully & Sully are the most popular soup brand in Ireland. Having tried a few from their range of fresh boxed soups, I have to admit that I can see why. I’m not one to buy soup all that often. I’ll make it myself or swerve it altogether. This is because soup from the fresh aisle is, to me, always depressing. Thin, watery, lacking in flavour – you know the drill. However, I think Cully & Sully have cracked it. Before posting I tried 6 soups from their range to make sure they all checked out and were …

The Chip Shop Sandwich

This recipe combines my favourite elements from the chippie – bar the actual chips – and puts them between two slices of bread slathered with Lurpak, what could be better? According to a recent study commissioned by Lurpak, the general public are like, super boring when the clock strikes lunch. Apparently, we’re all eating the same generic sad desk lunches every day, the most popular choice here being ham and cheese sandwiches. Up your game, people! I, along with some other awesome bloggers, have been invited to GO FREESTYLE and come up with a sandwich idea that puts ham and cheese to shame – I feel like I’ve totally achieved that. OK, you got me, this really isn’t packed-lunch-able, it’s more of a weekend job. But you know I’m a huge fan of quick and easy (see my packed peanut noodles if you need convincing) when it comes to lunchtime, and I’ll only publish a recipe with a bit of extra work if I think it’s really worth cooking. A note on the ingredients: my favourite thing about …
