I have friends coming over for dinner. She is vegan, we are vegetarian. I’m happy and able to cook a vegan main for us all, we eat vegan a couple of days a week anyway. What I can’t think of is a dessert. Everything seems to have egg or milk in it.
Any ideas? I’m happy to buy something in, they are good friends and this is an informal dinner.
There’s a seriously huge range of amazing vegan ice creams out there now. I usually stick a few options on the table for people to help themselves. The Coconut Collective little chocolate pots are actual heaven and just enough for a bit of sweet at the end of a big meal. The Lazy Day slices are also all good and go well with ice cream.
My go to if I’m being fancy and making an effort is a tart with an Oreo cookie base (whole ones bashed up and mixed with vegan butter like a cheesecake base) with dairy free chocolate ganache filling (the one from Jamie Olivers vegan chocolate tart is good) Usually nuts and/or raspberries as well. Macadamia nuts and smoked salt are a great topping.
MsHomeSlice yes they are accidentally vegan. The issue is possible cross contamination, they contain no animal products. Even the Vegan Society rules state that things labelled ‘may contain’ due to possible cross contamination are still classed as vegan. They are only a possible issue for extreme allergy sufferers.
SimonBridges it probably would work if it’s a good thick oat milk
