Veganuary 2020 and onwards to more events

Veganuary is here.

January is a month for a bit of rest for me after a hectic December.

I am now testing a new product, a vegan mozzarella. I will call it Mocksarella, since is is not made from milk. So it it a mock cheese. Like the Chinese have mock duck, mock pork and they taste good. I use cashew nuts and I have tried it a few times now.

My daughter tells me that it we should do cream cheese or cheese spread. I will come to it when I get my Mock-sa-rella right.

Here is a sneak preview:

Normal mozzarella is made from milk where casein is added and the solid bits are mainly the protein and fat.

My vegan friend tells me that cashew nut is a healthy nut. So there you go.

Ok, now that I am out, I think I taste good.

Drained and sliced mozzarella which will be used for my pizza. 

However, I do not have pizza base, so I just make do with whatever I have on hand.

Hahaha! My Pizza on toast.


In the first experiment, the cheese ( shall we say cheeve, cheese and vegan?) was a bit soft.

I have tried twice and made it firmer.

It will be available this Saturday 18 Jan at notjustaconershop aka Wigston Fields News and Deli.
