Improvised noodle soup…

Broth inspired by Dan Dan noodles (but based on what was in my cupboard & fridge!). Peanut butter, sesame oil, chili oil, soy sauce, garlic, Sichuan pepper, sea salt, turbinado sugar & balsamic vinegar mixed with vegetable stock. Soba noodles, broccoli, chives and sesame seeds on top. I had my doubts the substitutions would hold up, but it tasted delicious!

Mini vegan cupcakes with dark chocolate fudge icing…

I used a variation of this vegan cake recipe and winged the icing by using vegan dark hot chocolate mix, coconut milk and vegan margarine.
