Where to eat out and shop vegan in Peckham…

Watch this video for the low down…

Take a look at this map…

Eating out – the best places in Peckham

Zionly Manna – delicious carribean food run by Jahson, who is so passionate about healthy food at affordable prices.  Its also the meet up spot for Peckham Vegans.

Persopolis: Sally Butcher (lol) and her husband The Shopkeeper have been sharing selection of spices/food, run by Sally Butcher and author of Veggiestan: A Vegetable Lover’s Tour of the Middle East

Nutkin – run by the passionate and friendly Kate, it’s Peckham’s very own vegan cheese cafe! You can get also it on Deliveroo too 🙂

Banh Banh – delicious Vietnamese vegan food – spring rolls and stir frys. So fresh and healthy, its a favourite of ours.

Ganapati: south Indian vegan food

  • Cool Cat’s Cafe – Toby Maclean (a vegetarian himself) serves all homemade food: pesto spaghetti £8, Butterbean burger in a roll served with oven roast potatoes £8, gnocchi in a pepper and tomato sauce £10,  hummus and sourdough bread £4
  • Bambuni – lovely café and deli opposite Nunhead Green – ask they will make a fantastic vegan sandwich, and they have soya milk
  • The Old Nun’s Head – serves vegan burgers every night and a nut roast on Sundays (you have to ask for no Yorkshire puddings).
  • Dish and Spoon – lovely vegan soup
  • The Rye Pub – had quite a nice vegan dish when we ate there recently – or possibly it was a modified veggie dish – a kind of stuffed aubergine thing.

Eating in – where to shop vegan

Puzzle Organico: Rye Lane . Renato sells vegan chocolate cake, smoothies and organic vegetable

Food tasting – More Than Meat

London Vegan Mums enjoyed a free tasting session courtesy of vegan food makers More Than Meat this month.Vegan mums

Mums and babies munched on delicious Lorne sausages, indulgent sausage rolls, meaty meat-free burgers and spicy jerk burgers at the event hosted by Aneto Cafe and The Flying Pig pub in East Dulwich.
More Than Meat’s chef Stefano and founder Barry Honeycombe joined the group to share their creations, all of which are high in plant protein, low in salt and have zero cholesterol.

The London Vegan Mums group has been going since the new year and now holds monthly lunches for vegan parents and children.

How to make fried tofu :)

A number of people have asked, so here is my guide to making yummy fried tofu…

1. Ingredients…

  • ‘Firm’ Tofu (£1.20 from local Oriental Supermarket, but is sold in most supermarkets)
  • nuts and seeds – cashew, almond, sunflower, pumpkin (and maybe some diced spring onion)
  • vegetable oil
  • soy sauce
  • ginger + garlic + salt
  • non-stick pan

IMAG1576

2. Make it…

  • heat the pan (no oil at this point)
  • cut up the tofu into reasonably sized squares
  • whack em in, lay them flat
  • heat for 10 minutes turning regularly until they brown and crisp slightly
  • whack in the nuts and seeds, along with a splash of oil
  • fry until golden, splash on the soya sauce (not vital)
  • add the spring onions and crushed garlic and ginger for flavouring
  • keep stirring and give it a taste

3. Eat it!

Tweet me a picture on @LondonVeganSoc and let me know how it goes!

The service will feature prayers, readings and hymns, having our relationship with the animal kingdom as its theme and ending with the blessing of individual animals The event celebrates World Animal Day, the feast day of St.Francis of Assisi, which is on October 4. The service this year is dedicated to the nuns of the Russian Orthodox Convent of the Nativity of the Virgin in the Kaluga region of Russia in honour of their caring, compassionate work on behalf of unwanted and abandoned animals, especially cats. A local resident has links with the convent and during the service will give a presentation about its work on behalf of animals in need.  Click to find out more.

Wandsworth Vegan and Veggie Society

wandsWe are looking for people to join our group in Wandsworth, could you help? We have 10 members and have picked a few more up from Vegfest. We also need someone to help with the monthly meetings and a place to meet, any ideas?

Find us on Facebook and say hello!

Hotspots

Pleaces to eat out suggested by Mike Grahn from Wandsworth Friends of the Earth after Thomas Micklewright visited them for their monthly meetup.

  • Girasole in Garratt Lane is a nice family-run Italian restaurant and is located near to Earlsfield train station.
  • South Indian restaurants in Tooting High Street and around.  The back room at Jaffna House is a favourite, but others are pure vegetarian which this is not.
  • Gallapagos in Battersea High Street always have something tasty as one of their three daily specials.
  • Maybe: Green Thai Cafe another local on Garratt Lane, but I’m not sure whether they use a dash of fish sauce in their many vegetable dishes (it would be traditional for Thai cuisine). Can anyone confirm this?
