I am really excited to announce my new project: From Pin to Plate. I love Pinterest and am constantly using it to pin inspiring vegan recipes I find. My goal is to use it to showcase how delicious vegan food can be (so I try hard to make sure everything I pin is totally vegan – I don’t pin recipes that ‘could be adapted to be vegan’ – I want to show great vegan recipes). However, I have a bit of a backlog of recipes I am yet to try. So I thought it would be good to give myself a bit of a kick up the arse and make sure I try out some of the recipes I have found via Pinterest regularly, at least once a month. So the idea of From Pin to Plate came about.
First up was these breakfast nachos from Post Punk Kitchen. I’m a huge Isa Chandra Moskowitz fan (Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World was the book that turned me vegan, by showing me vegan cake can be tasty), so I knew from the moment I saw it this would be good. But it’s also just such a brilliant idea. I love nachos, I love cashew queso, and I love breakfast. Combine all three? It’s a dream come true.
I made a few changes here – I used my basic nacho recipe and my nacho cashew cheese sauce recipe (I made nachos a few days ago and made some extra cashew cheese sauce). I also modified the tofu scramble to suit the ingredients I had to hand (and to use up some courgettes and red peppers I had in the fridge) plus to include Vegg to make it taste eggier. It was an amazing breakfast (and SO filling) – I highly recommend it!!
I’ll be doing more pin to plate posts, so watch out for more to come. Have a suggestion of something I should try? Link to the pin in the comments or ping me a message with a link!
