Vegan MoFo – Cuisine Cookings!

Hi,

cornweb

Today’s theme is to talk about your favourite cuisine. I’m really looking forward to reading about everyone’s favourite foods and hopefully get to try some new cuisines that I hadn’t thought of trying before. As for me I guess my favourite food is that from South East Asia, which is pretty handy as I’m currently in Cambodia :) Yeah sorry, I guess I’m cheating a bit with a pre-composed blog post, but I’ve missed so many days of vegan MoFo that I wanted to try and manage a few more posts before the end.

A new Pho restaurant (Vietnamese!) has opened in Manchester, so of course Gary and I had to go check it out as soon as physically possible.

Phở nấm rơm, also known as Enoki, shiitake & button mushroom noodle soup

The bun noodles came with nuoc cham (fish sauce dressing) on the side that they happily replaced with a ginger soy sauce for me to make it vegan. Very delicious.

I made the pad thai from Isa Does It when my mum came for dinner.

It was very very good!

I also made the Watercress, Coconut, Lumpia Spring Rolls from Vegan Eats World when my girls came over for lunch the other week. They were really really amazing!

You roll them up like little buritos and bake them in the oven until they’re gorgeous and crispy. The dipping sauce that goes with them is divine but I added 1/4 cup water to dilute it a little so it wasn’t too salty.

I really have to buy this cookbook that Joey talked about on Day 12 for the theme of favourite cookbook. As you can tell I love asian cuisine so a cookbook dedicated to these flavours sounds amazing to me!

Hope you’re still enjoying vegan MoFo!
