It’s not an official “week” of anything, I’ve just decided to eat vegan for a (Mon-Fri) week, and I’ve roped in a few colleagues who thought it sounded interesting.
The plan is mainly to get out of a rut of eating all the same things. And maybe to be healthier or to be better to the planet, if I decide that I like choosing to eat plant-based foods.
Lunch: from Itsu – their detox* miso soup and veg maki rolls
Dinner: homemade (at the weekend) roasted pepper and tomato soup, tiger bread rolls, and banana coconut rice pudding (see below).
*It doesn’t detox you really because there’s no such thing, I have a working liver, but it’s a miso soup with noodles and veg dumplings and it was suddenly really cold like real November weather and I wanted something warm.
The rice pudding was very nice and autumnal, and very simple. I took 200g of risotto rice, 3 sliced bananas, covered with hot water and simmered until nearly done, then added 50g of coconut milk powder and 2 dessert spoons of brown sugar.
It was a bit gloopy and obviously massively stodgy but very satisfying.
