My Pinterest is filled with all of the places I need to visit all over the UK and if you saw my Netflix history you’d see such beloved favorites as Call the Midwife, Pulling, Family Tree, Hello Ladies, Downton Abbey, of course The Office, The Ricky Gervais Show, Idiot Abroad, The Moaning of Life, Land Girls, Bletchley Circle, Broadchurch, Great British Ghosts, The Book Club and The Worst Week of My Life.
After decorating the walls of my flat with UK maps, photos, travel prints and even a W.C. sign above the door to the loo, it was time to find a new front for my obsession. Food.
I’ve long heard of the famous Full English Breakfast (aka ‘The Full English’ or ‘Fry Up’) and we decided to give it a go. With our cuppas in hand, my husband and I set out to veganize it (best as two Americans could). I’m pleased to say that we were quite chuffed with the result.
I’ve heard that a “true” Full English is very salty and heavy. Usually reserved for weekends these days. The vegan version was also quite salty and heavy. We spent some time lounging about watching the telly after devouring it.
Of course everything was delicious and exciting to indulge in, but it was our first time getting to try the VeganEgg that Follow Your Heart released this past Fall.
If you haven’t tried the VeganEgg yet, and can’t find it in your area, you can order it from Vegan Essentials. We really loved it. It was so fun to have scrambled “eggs” that weren’t made of tofu, since I have a soy intolerance.
The flavor is very mild and reminded us of oatmeal or instant mashed potatoes, which I love because it’s so versatile. You can go in any direction. Make an omelette with vegan cheese, peppers and onions or bake a quiche with spinach and vegan cheese or just add some sea salt, pepper and diced vegan sausage for yummers scrambled eggs.
Here’s a video from Anglophenia showing how to make a traditional Full English. (WARNING: Video contains images of animal products being cooked.)
