Product review : Redwood Vegi Deli Organic Nuggets

Redwood is English company that specialize in producing delicious foods that are totally free from animal ingredients. I wanted to taste their products for quite some time, but I never could convince myself to actually buy something. I don’t know any vegans or vegetarians, so I am on my own with finding new food. This saturday I had the perfect opportunity to finally try it. We had some friends coming over and have decided to make fondue. They ate meat and I bought Redwood Vegi Deli Organic Nuggets.

Redwood je angleško podjetje, ki je specializirano za izdelavo okusnih živil, ki so popolnoma brez živalskih sestavin. Že kar nekaj časa sem želela poizkusiti njihove izdelke, ampak se nikoli nisem prepričala, da bi jih dejansko kupila. Ne pznam veganov ali vegetarijancev, zato sem sama pri iskanju nove hrane. To soboto sem imela odlično priložnost, da jih končno poizkusim. Na večerjo sva povabila nekaj prijateljev in se odločila, da postreževa fondue. Vsi so jedli meso, zase pa sem kupila Redwood Vegi Deli Nuggets Organic.

Pumpkin soup

I like the taste of pumpkin, but I have never eaten it as a child. It is not common in our country to eat it, it is meant for pigs. But for 4-5 years now you can buy them in every grocery or at outdoor market. And as I mentioned before I love soups in autumn and winter, so here it is – pumpkin soup.

Bučna juha

Všeč mi je okus buče, vendar je kot otrok nikoli nisem jedela. Pri nas so buče ponavadi namenjene prašičom, zelo malokrat se znajde na jedilniku. Zadnjih 4-5 let pa jih že lahko kupitš v vsaki živili ali na tržnici. In kot sem že omenila obožujem juhe jeseni in pozimi, zato današnji recept – bučna juha.

Clear vegetable soup a.k.a. best hangover meal

I’m not a fan of alcohol, especially not the next morning [wink]. When I know that there might be an occasion soon that could produce hangover, I make some clear vegetable soup or stock. With some homemade noodles from my granddad it is the perfect meal for that terrible headache!

Bistra zelenjavna juha

Nisem ljubiteljica alkohola, še manj pa naslednje jutro [wink]. Ko se bliža priložnost, po katje velika verjetnost za mačka, si pripravim lonec bistre zelenjavne juhe. Z domačimi nudelci, ki jih naredi moj dedek, je juha popoln obrok za tisti strašni glavobol!

Soy chunks carbonara

I have been cooking this dish for quite some time, even before I stopped eating meat. It was my mother that introduced me to this recipe, but through time I changed it a bit. This is a vegetarian version, but with some adjustments I think you could make a vegan version too. I will try to make it and post the results.

Sojino carbonaro pripravljam že kar nekaj let, pripravljala sem jo tudi preden sem nehala jesti meso. Recept mi je povedala mami, vendar sem ga skozi čas rahlo spreminjala. Spodnji recept je vegetarijanska verzija, ampak bi se z nekaj spremembami dalo narediti tudi vegansko. Definitivno bom poskusila in potem objavim rezultate.

No bake cheesecake

This cake is super good! The recipe is adapted from recipe by Martha Stewart and was found here. I made the cake for my dear friend J. for his birthday with the help from my indispensable M. The photographs are bad and taken 2 minutes before leaving, but the taste is so good it is worth reading the rest of this post to find the recipe!

Ta torta je noro dobra! Recept je prevzet po receptu Marthe Stewart in sem ga našla tu. Torto sem naredila za J., zelo dobrega prijatelja, ki je v nedeljo praznoval rojstni dan. Pri tem pa mi je pomagal moj nepogrešljivi M. Fotografije so obupne, sploh zato ker so bile posnete dve minuti pred odhodom, ampak je bil okus torte tako dober, da se ti splača brati naprej, da najdeš recept (sploh, ker si že tako blizu)!
