Brunch at the Cosy Club in Norwich

I heard that the Cosy Club was coming to Norwich and they were taking over the old Natwest bank on London St. We went to check out their vegan brunch and I have only great things to say!

Scrambled Tofu

This is one of those vegan staples I never really got round to attempting to make at home. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever eaten it either. Most places I’ve been to that offered a vegan brunch usually produced a fry up with vegan sausages – which is fine, I love that. But I’m intrigued to try new things as well and the scrambled tofu did not disappoint.

The dish is made up of:

Scrambled tofu with roasted tomatoes, peppers, kale, lovage pesto, tomato tapenade and toasted seeds on toasted puccia.

I added a potato rosti for an additional 80p (bargain) and I’m very glad I did because it was delicious and it bumped up the breakfast a bit more.

The decor

Sadly I didn’t take any photos of this but one day I would love to sneak in when no one is there and photograph it all. What can I say? It’s very hipster. Big chandeliers, loud wallpaper, photos of birds and fish lining the walls. Everything screamed Overkill and that’s my kind of venue.

Easy Vegan Blueberry Muffins

Recently I made these easy vegan blueberry muffins for a neighbourhood gathering and they got some compliments so I thought they were worth sharing.

I never have much luck with baking – something always goes wrong – so I enjoy my successes when they occur. This time something did also go wrong – I was following a recipe online on my iPad and the app crashed before I could find out how much oil to use! So I had to guess as I couldn’t trail through all the Google results (it wasn’t in my history – the crash removed it, I don’t know why.) It worked out just fine regardless.
