Easy Vegan Pad Thai

Easy Vegan Pad Thai

One of the great powers of cooking is to give people the opportunity to discover different cultures and languages through food. I love finding out different flavours, comparing the tastes of our traditions with those of the other, using new spices every day and, above all, trying to imitate special dishes. For example, I love Thai food, since it offers various vegan options and I often enjoy it in many restaurants in London.

Since many years, I have been celebrating my birthday at Thai restaurant. To celebrate these special occasions, I went at “Coach and Horses” in Stoke Newington, which offers a wonderful atmosphere in the light of candles and a great menu with vegan options.

Today’s recipe is Pad Thai: a very common dish in Thailand with rice or noodles sautéed with eggs, fish, but also with vegetables or tofu. Obviously, I will prepare the vegan version that is also incredibly delicious! Read More

LONDON’S THREE TOP VEGAN RESTAURANTS

LONDON’S THREE TOP VEGAN RESTAURANTS

Are you looking for a great vegan restaurant in the city of London? Well, it is known that this city has been long time named as “veggie” capital, and this means it offers lots of amazing first – rate options for those avoiding meat & fish.

I have picked out for you three of the best vegan restaurants in London with friendly service in a lovely atmosphere, where food is flavoursome and the city will be proud of for sure.

Here there is a list of meat – free best restaurants for dining in London:

 222 Veggie Vegan

The very first one I would propose is 222 Veggie Vegan, because of its trendy and ethical menu choice. Basically, they have eliminated from their menus any traces of salt and vegetable fats. This cosy little place offers lunch buffet and dinner à la carte, and for those who are too lazy… home delivery! All dishes are prepared naturally and healthy, of course.

 Mildreds

Mildreds is home for anyone: vegans, vegetarians or even omnivorous are welcomed. This restaurant serves international veggie dishes from all over the world. Food is always fresh, appetizing and organic. They do all their best to make their clients feel like at home while dining.

 Vantra Vitao

It is worth to spend few words about this astonishing incomparable organic café. It offers a wide range of salads, hot dishes and raw food. This café serves truly vegan and very healthy food, mainly raw and natural. So, if you are on diet or you would lose weight you must try it!

 As they say, enjoy these three great vegan restaurants, full of vegan healthy options (even raw food) in the most populated city of the world! Everyone is going vegan now than even before and veganism is a growing lifestyle all around the London community.

What makes London a “talking” living city concerns its multicultural and cosmopolitan background. In this city multiculturalism has become a habit. There are swarms of people from all around the world living and working here. London is certainly the city you have to pass through once in your life.

Assunta is a long-standing friend of mine. We have been knowing each other for decades, since when we were two dreamy teens from South of Italy (Apulia)…
Me and Assunta have been in touch for years, as long as I left Italy to London, where I settled and started working on my personal project Natureat, while she became a photographer.

Assunta is currently living in Bari, in Southern Italy, where she works with her camera, taking pictures and she is an amazing  wedding photographer.

Few months ago, when Assunta was passing through London, we spent some time together like the old good times. Although time passes, Assunta didn’t change much.

Some feelings and emotions just didn’t vanish over time: in fact, my dear friend Assunta looks like the same I met years ago; a genuine and dreamy person who never ceased to rejoice and being amazed of little things.

We made up for the lost years, drinking some wine together, and talking about our lives for hours. I felt like I was at home and I appreciated her curiosity (and satisfaction) when she tried (and appreciated) my vegan food.

She told me about her future plans and about the hard work concerning the wedding photography, which she deals with. I really appreciate her alternative style and the passion she puts in all her works. It makes everything magical and wonderful.

Before she left, we stopped at a coffee shop in Brick Lane: a very vintage place, which has so influenced our adolescence.

Suddenly, we had an idea… While we were chatting, unwilling to let our friendship again at the mercy of the distance, we took a decision. Me and Assunta are now working together for a common idea, a co-working between Food & Photography, that you will soon be able to follow on our blog.

Through the memories of the past and expectations about the future, we are the very same that we used to be in the past, but maybe we are more sensible and with great expectations to turn our desires into reality.
