What's better than connecting on social media platforms like instagram and facebook groups? Connecting in real life of course (or 'IRL' in short if you wanna be really cute)! Which is why, after 2 long years of thinking about it, I'm hosting my second London vegan meet-up this Autumn. I'm not running the show on my own though, instead I'm roping in support from Viola - you may know her from this blog post we did together, and/or from her highly successful Sunshine Eatery instagram account - and Nisha, one of my awesome and sweet community members who you can find here.
Now the question is, would YOU like to join us in South East London for our vegan get together? Then be sure to mark Saturday, September 15th 12 - 2pm 16th 11am - 1.30pm in your diary and read on for lots more info:
WHAT IS THE AUTUMN LONDON VEGAN MEET UP EXACTLY?
The meet up is an opportunity to connect with fellow food bloggers and food lovers in the London area. Perhaps you can find someone to do a blog collaboration with or exchange baking tips with? It's your day to mingle and have fun and MY chance to get to know you better and say thank you for supporting this blog :). In short a heart felt afternoon full of real connections.
PLEASE NOTE! This is a totally FREE informal meet up. It's not a workshop and I won't be teaching ;).
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO THE GREAT VEGAN GET-TOGETHER?
Please can you bring 1 vegan dish (sweet or savoury) inspired by Autumn. Anything that's seasonal using local ingredients will be greatly appreciated. Perhaps a pretty picnic blanket and your camera/iphone to capture the day for social if you wish ;).
WHERE WILL IT BE HELD?
The idea is we'll have an Autumn inspired picnic in the park right next to my home in Forest Hill, South East London. I'm hoping to make it extra pretty so we can take lots of fun outdoor shots for instagram stories. However, if it rains we'll move the get together indoors. Either way, our meeting place will be at my home in Forest Hill.
If you'd like to attend please e-mail me at kimberly(at)thelittleplantation(dot)co(dot)uk. Either myself or Nisha will then send you exact directions.
WHEN WILL THE VEGAN MEET UP TAKE PLACE?
We will be meeting on Saturday, September 15th from 12noon onwards. You are welcome to drop in whenever suits and leave when you start getting bored (or when all the yummy nibbles are gone, whichever of these two things happens first).
DO I NEED TO BE VEGAN OR A FOOD BLOGGER TO ATTEND?
No! Though the meet-up is aimed at food bloggers and food lovers, anyone who is happy to make and eat delicious vegan food is welcome to attend. Please note you don't have to be vegan/plant-based/vegetarian but I would ask that you make something that is completely free of animal products including butter, gelatine and honey! If in doubt, please contact me beforehand. Oh and feel free to bring along a friend if you want to. The more, the merrier.
Please contact me on Kimberly(at)thelittleplantation(dot)co(dot)uk to let me know that you'd like to come, to receive more info and to say hi :). Can't wait to hear from you.
See you soon!
EASY VEGAN NO-BAKE BERRY TARTLET RECIPE
No hot oven, or fancy ingredients required. Just 4 simple, from-the-corner-shop-easy-to-find ingredients, 30 minutes MAX and these vegan berry tartlets could be yours tonight!
Makes: 6 vegan tartlets
Preparation time: 30 minutes
200g muesli or granola of your choice
150g medjool dates (pitted)
12tbs (about 300g) creamy (vegan) yoghurt (I used coconut yoghurt)
a handful of fresh or frozen organic berries of your choice
Weigh and measure your ingredients.
Combine the muesli and dates for about 5 minutes in a food processor, until the mixture binds together when gently pressed by hand. This mixture forms the tartlet crust.
Remove the tartlet crust mixture from the food processor and distribute evenly in 6 tartlet forms. Ideally the forms should have a loose and removable base to make your life easier ;), though this isn't necessary to make the recipe work.
Press the mixture into the forms using your hand or the smooth side of a spoon. Next, fill each tartlet with 2 tablespoons of yoghurt and top with your favourite frozen or fresh berries.
Remove the tartlets from the form and serve. Enjoy!
TIP 1: If a little bit of the crust mixture is left over, form into little energy balls and freeze for when you need an on-the-go-snack.
TIP 2: Replace the berries with other seasonal fruit throughout the year, so as to keep this treat kind to the planet all year round.
TIP 3: Use gluten-free granola or muesli to make this treat gluten-free! And a nut-free granola/muesli to keep this nut free too!
