Hola Amigos. Fancy some Mexican food? Those grilled Corntortillas stuffed with BBQ Bloody Mary jackfruit, melted cheese, sweetcorn, sour creme, jalapeños, cashews and avocados and homemade Mexican Pinto Coleslaw are amazing. I love to try new things. Isn’t it crazy that you can make vegan pulled pork from a fruit? I do not know who first came up with the idea of using Jackfruits for a vegan version of Pulled Pork, but whoever it was thank you what a great idea! All in all, you do not need more than 30 minutes to make those Jackfruit Pulled Pork Quesadillas. My recipe may seem like I was just throwing together a random mix of ingredients – but trust me this combination will blow you away.

Best Vegan Parmesan Cheese

This nut cheese is amazing. I tell you before being a vegan I loved cheese on absolutely everything and everyone who knows me and has been to a restaurant with me in the past is aware of me having been every waiter’s nightmare – “Would you like some Parmesan – Just say stop when it’s enough cheese” – it feels like 10mins pass and the waiter’s eyes are getting bigger and bigger” after the cheese piling up on my Spaghetti or Bruschetta I then finally to the relief of the waiter do say “Thank you, this is enough for me” and he runs straight off and I can see his eyes roll. I blame it on the Italian in me. Those times have long passed now, however, I needed a substitute and that quick! I tried all sorts of vegan cheeses: Sainsbury’s ready-grated “Gary”, tried grating Violife myself, took the hours-long journey to Wholefoods on me and basically emptied their whole cheese shelf. Sadly, everything badly disappointed me on pasta (there were some great options for putting under the grill to make things like Pizza, Stuffed Veggies, Lasagne, Cheeseburgers or Mac’n’Cheese). So I started to experiment and can promise you this one is blitzed up in less than 5mins and tastes even better than Parmesan! Give it a try – I’d love to hear what you think!
