An extended week of vegan eating – Days 7 – 9


We have enjoyed the veg focus so much this week that we have decided to carry on.

Monday – eating on the run. A glass of wine and a falafel wrap on the commuter train.

Tuesday – French onion soup. – Made with lots of onions, sauteed with olive oil and a tablespoon of sugar into a brown caramelised mush. Add hot vegetable stock, a glass of sweet sherry and served with crusty bread.

I was remarkably clumsy with the sherry while cooking this. Not only did I manage to splash the sherry into the soup, I also managed to splash it into the little tiny crystal sherry glasses we have (twice).

Wednesday – Veg roast dinner. – This was a feast. Roasted cauliflower, carrots, parsnips and potatoes with peas, onion and sage stuffing balls and mushroom and red wine gravy (made also with veg stock).

  1. Oooh, I’d love the recipe for the onion and sage stuffing balls! And I nearly snorted out my coffee when I read the part about sherry. I’ve never actually cooked with sherry (as it’s much less common here), but I certainly have done that a time or two with a bit of wine!

      I am afraid to say that I use a packet stuffing mix of sage and onion usually. If I am not doing a vegetarian version then I squeeze out really good quality sausage meat from sausages and mix that in. For Christmas I also add crushed cooked chestnuts.
