I got the chance to finally try out Ethos after hearing so much about it!
For those of you who don’t know, it’s a vegetarian and vegan buffet where you pile up your plate for £2.50 per 100g and pay at the till (for reference, my plate costed about £13).

If you know me you will love buffets. There’s always so much delicious choice and this was no exception! The tables were filled with beautiful colours, from the fruity salads to the hearty tagines, there’s something for everyone!

I entered into the pristine restaurant. All white with hints of blue, gold and beautiful tree trunks that swindle between the seats.
As it was a particularly hot day, I decided to venture for the cold salad table, brimming with bright colour which was super enticing!

The hot food counter also looked great with food from sweet potato fries to their legendary aloo scotch egg. The great thing is that they constantly come out with fresh food so you know none of the food has been sitting there all day long!

All the food is labelled if it’s are gluten free or vegan but you can easily ask one of the staff members if there are any concerns, which is always nice.

I settled for a plate of absolute delights!

The heirloom tomato and bean salad and the crunchy Asian slaw was so nice and refreshing: I especially loved all the herbs in the slaw as it was a great palate cleanser!

Roasted cauliflower is something I adore but haven’t had it in so long so it was so lovely to have these hunky chunks of roasted cauliflower smothered in a rich tahini dressing and sprinkled with crunchy toasted walnuts and tart cranberries!

The good green salad was infact very good, I loved how it was packed with green vegetables that were in season as they always taste the best!
I also loved the broccoli and raw beetroot salad: I’m a big fan of beets and loved this salad as it had a wonderfully light Asian style vinaigrette!

One of my favourites was the Japanese miso aubergine, which has been raved about in every review I’ve read so I knew I had to try it! As I’m half Japanese, saying that I love nasu dengaku is almost an understatement and I think these did a great job in recreating the flavour. My only regret was not having more!

My other favourite was the Moroccan tagine with chickpeas and apricots, it transported me back to Marrakech! It was packed with flavour and the wonderful sweetness of the apricots came through as well as the smoky cinnamon.

Don’t worry – they also had plenty of naughty or nice desserts to: from carrot cake and pecan pie to raw energy balls!

Overall, I really enjoyed trying out Ethos and will definitely go back since it’s in such a convenient place.
Just a warning, it does get very busy at around 1 o’clock so try to get there a bit early if you want a table!

So I FINALLY filmed a video! I know, finally. Apart from my April Favourites (so much fun to make!), it’s been 2 months. Oh em gee.

I know this is a super easy meal but I feel like everyone needs a stir fry recipe under their sleeve and it’s so much nicer to put your favourite vegetables in and keep it nice and fresh rather than buying a pre made stir fry bag (aka 90% bean sprouts)!

Easy & Healthy Stir Fry vegan, gluten free, dairy free
Serves 2

Stir fries are so easy and versatile – you can add any vegetables that you like! I’ve listed quantities here, but it’s easy to make more or less and I love making it in bulk to provide me with meals and sides throughout the week! If you have fresh coriander (cilantro) I highly recommend you add it for an amazing fresh flavour!

1/2 head broccoli, lightly steamed
Handful of green beans, lightly steamed
1 bell pepper
1 zucchini
Handful of mushrooms
3 spring onions
Small chunk of ginger
Coconut oil or olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 lemon or lime, to squeeze over the top
Sesame seeds, for garnish
Coriander (cilantro), for garnish

Slice the vegetables into roughly the same size.

Heat pan until hot and add the oil and spring onions.

Turn the heat down to medium and allow the spring onions to get soft then add the ginger.

Once fragrant, add the zucchini, mushrooms and bell pepper.
Season along the way.

Once nearly cooked, add the lightly steamed broccoli and green beans.

Turn the heat off and stir through the coriander (stalks too!) and squeeze over the lemon or lime.

Serve with a sprinkling of sesame seeds and extra coriander.
