First up, happy Hallowe'en!
Second up, can you guess what these spooky things are?
Yep, that's right, blue pancakes! BLUE! I got a new crepe pan not so long ago, and this was my first time doing a bit of pancake magic.
In honour of Hallowe'en, I made them with purple carrots grated inside. What's Hallowe'eny about those? Purple carrots are sold under the name witches' noses in the local supermarket - sweet huh? For extra bonus Hallowe'en points, I stuffed it with pumpkin (and tomato, chard and sunflower seeds, but that's not Hallowe'en themed). For extra bonus super Hallowe'en points, I made a pumpkin sauce to go on top and baked the whole lot in the oven.
The sauce was made with pureed roasted pumpkin, miso, lemon juice, stock, soy milk, mustard, sage, and nooch, all mixed together. It was really good! Only it looked like something that had come out of the wrong end of a dog, so there's no picture. Seriously, I couldn't bring myself to post it. You'd have been really sad with me.
Still, I've been making the odd concession to deliciousness that doesn't involve making dog sick food.
Inspired by Maud on Food Feud, I decided I needed pumpkin beer (complete with Hallowe'en cup)
Also, I discovered these little guys at Marks and Spencer. They're not labelled as vegan, but there's nothing non-vegan in them that I can see. They're rather cute.
There's no pumpkin in it either - Mr Flicking the Vs had a craving for Hawaiian, so there's some Vbites vegan ham slices and pineapple there, all buried under a mound of cashew queso. It's a his and hers pizza - the other half is mushroom and tomato for me.
And what's best about this pizza is that there's still a slice of it left for breakfast. It's just another reason to love Hallowe'en!
