Plant something:  spring onions, garlic.

Harvest something: Mizuna, parsley,  pak choy,  rocket,  radicchio, spring onions, oregano, fennel tops

Preserved something: soy yogurt, experimental soy cheese.

Waste not: usual composting, worm-farming & recycling.

Want not: Two new resource  books arrived this week: the updated copy of ‘Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom’, a great holistic women’s health resource; and ‘Viva Vegan!’, Terry Romero’s Latin vegan cookbook. Viva Vegan looks GREAT for garden/pantry cooking in my climate (ie just sub the sub-tropics).

Build Community Food Systems: Shared gardening info with friends, including evangelising the ease of growing perennials (specifically jerusalem artichokes & sweet potatoes).

Eat the food: Kale ‘frittata’ (with tofu) wraps with home-made Mediterranean chutney, bean burgers (using stale bread) with homemade peach salsa, home-baked oatmeal raisin cookies, apple cherry crumble.

What a fantastic assembly of food-love! How was experimental soy cheese? I’m dying to know!

Hi scrumptious, I’m making a version of labneh (or yogurt cheese), by draining my homemade soy yogurt in a colander lined with a clean cloth. I set the colander in the fridge overnight. It’s pretty soft, but it’s got a nice spreadable texture.

Ooh, what a great idea! I’ve always been fascinated by labneh, but went vegan before I could try it out. I will have to try the soy version! I love spreadable-textured foods…
