This recipe has its inspiration rooted in the most unlikely of places - The Toby Carvery. What does a vegan know about Toby Carvery I hear you ask?!!? Well, actually you may be surprised to learn that this "haven of meat" serves not one, but two specified vegan options! So, anyway, my boyfriend (vegan, loves junk food!!) loves their nut roast Wellington and set me the task of recreating it in someway. Since the actual Wellington is pastry, I can't eat that being gluten free, and it makes me very sad to make yummy dinners for us both that I can't eat (obviously!!) so I decided to stuff a mushroom with the most delectable and 'meaty' filling I could conjure up!
You know those times when you are eating something you know is bad for you, and you say "I wish (insert naughty treat here) was actually good for me!" Yeah? Well yesterday I actually experienced something so delicious and decadent that all who tasted it said "I cannot believe this is actually good for you, because it tastes soooo naughty!" Well ok, I may have been paraphrasing a little just then, that that is pretty much what we all said when we were tucking into this fruity, creamy sweet dream. This dessert (or breakfast if you are like me this morning) is, like everything else on this blog, free from gluten, refined sugar, dairy, chemicals or preservatives, meat, eggs, trans fat and cholesterol. So in your face people who think that healthy food can't be tasty. IN YOUR FACE!!!
Are you sick of buying ridiculously expensive granola that is laden with sugar and odd chemicals, and only has about 6 portions per box? Yeah... I was too. That's why I made THIS! It is super easy to make, super filling, super energising and most importantly: It's really, really yummy!! The first batch I made lasted less than two days due to the yumminess.
Once you try this I promise you won't go back to the shop bought type. I urge you, give it a go, you WILL love it!
