Gluten AND Vegan Takeaway Pizza Manchester

I was lucky to find this pizza from @fireaway_mcr_fallowfield one of the few places in Manchester where you can order a gluten free base with vegan cheese (for extra dosh).

There’s lots of pre-made options but if you go down the ‘create your own’ route you get to choose from lots of toppings.

I learned that if you type the food you want into Deliveroo, say ‘pizza’ and you click on the number of that food available (rather than the names of the actual eateries), you can the specify lots of options, such as ‘dietary’ needs. Bingo!

The Best Burger I’ve EVER Eaten, Which Happens To Be Vegan!

Hello everyone 💙

The best vegan burger I have ever eaten is from Aldi. It’s their Plant Menu – No Beef Burger.

I wish I’d have taken a photo to show how thick this burger is! I topped it with thin slices of Vegan Applewood Smoked ‘cheese’ and grilled it.

The Bloke made me a side salad of Aldi mixed greens with shredded beetroot (this bagged salad lasted a whole week!), Helman’s Vegan Mayo, Caper Berries and olive oil.

Basic List Of Ingredients to Replicate Takeaway Favourites at Home

Hello lovely people! ✨💙✨

As you probably know I ‘don’t do cooking’ because Im too neurodiverse to function…in the kitchen for very long. So every ingredient here is incredibly simple to ‘cook’ and combine to make something tasty.

Everything here is dairy and gluten free apart from Amy’s Kitchen Rice Mac and Cheese which has dairy.

Dirty Nachos

Manosmasa Tortillas or any wholegrain Nachos

Vivera Greek Style Kebab strips

Tesco Smashed Avocado

Mexicana Jalepeno Cheese or a cheddar substitute

Pret Spicy Tomato Sauce or Salsa

Pad Thai Style Noodles

Rice Noodles

Kikkoman Tamari (gf soy sauce)

Sesame Oil

Salted Roasted Peanuts (not shown) to be crushed up on top

Sririacha Sauce (not shown)

Mixed Frozen Veg

Fresh Spring Onion (not shown)

Wicked Kitchen Garlic & Herb Nooch (nutritional yeast) just a sprinkle

Stacked Burger

Genius Bread/Buns/Muffins

This Bacon

Vivera Greek Kebab Strips

Vegan Cheese of your choice

Smashed Avocado

Pret Spicy Tomato Sauce

Satay Sauce Noodles

Rice Noodles

Mixed Frozen Veg

Tamari Sauce (gf soy sauce)

Meridian Peanut Butter

Sririacha Sauce

Amys Kitchen Rice Mac n’ Cheese Ready Meal

I’ve bought great gluten free pasta but I find making dairy-free cheese sauce (that I actually like) so faffy! I’m going to try using vegan cream cheese or vegan mayo instead with rice milk and nutrional yeast. Wish me luck!

I hope you’ve found this basic list of ingredients for takeaway favourites helpful. If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know.

What Does Someone Who is Plant Based and Gluten-free Actually Eat?! A Look Inside my Fridge and Cupboard

Hello lovely people! ✨💙✨

Even if you have a vegetarian, gluten-free and/or dairy-free diet (mine is for ethical and food intolerance reasons), there are still so many things you can eat! So I thought I’d share my tiny fridge and stupidly large cupboard with you.

Top (left to right) Nairn’s Whole Grain (gf) Crackers, Momasa Lemon and Peppercorn tortilla chips, Biona Fruit Bears, Kind Dark Choc, Nuts & Sea Salt, Pulsin Brownie Peanut & Choc Chip.

Middle Asda Sesame Oil, Felippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Wicked Kitchen Garlic and Herb Nooch (nutritional yeast which gives things a cheesy taste like mild Parmesan), Nice and Easy Cheese Flavour Sauce Mix, Amy’s Kitchen Tomato Soup, Amy’s Kitchen Lentil Soup, Amoy Rice Noodles.

Bottom Kikkoman Gluten Free Soy Sauce, Le Conserve Detla Nonna Green (vegan) Pesto, Nice and Easy Chickpea and Vegetable Curry, Garlic cloves (I prefer garlic purée in a tube lol), Tilda Microwave Mushroom Rice, Morrison’s Hot Paprika, Ground Black Pepper.

Top shelf Vitalite spread, Clover spread (my Dad’s), mushrooms, gluten free Peroni, radishes.

Middle shelf Olives, bananas (no idea ?!), more beer, guacamole, humus, halloumi (the blokes), Vivera kebab strips.

Bottom shelf Always some kind of energy drink, cranberry and apple sauce, jars of antipasti, spring onions, bell (sweet) pepper.

In the door Fresh orange and mango juice, eye gel (so cooling!), Mayo, sriracha, chilli oil.

Nearly every item here was bought from either Asda, Morrison’s or Tesco but the dairy free guacamole was from Ocado (as I don’t have the time and energy to make it myself).

I hope this post helps to make any transitions in your diet and/or lifestyle a little easier!

The Best Gluten Free Pizza in Manchester

Hello lovely people ✨💙✨

I’m so glad I’ve come across Ask Italian, a nationwide restaurant chain that has wonderful vegetarian options, a gluten-free pizza and pasta menu, plus a vegan menu.

This is their Non-Gluten Verdure pizza, with mushroom, red pepper, black olives, artichoke, mozzarella and basil (£9.95) You can add any extra topping and a spicy tomato dip to your order for around a quid each.

This has to be the best gluten-free base that I’ve ever tasted. It’s thin, floppy but still slightly crispy, like a traditional Italian base. It doesn’t have that thick, flowery texture that gf takeaway bases have.

Gluten Free (English) Pancakes

I call these English pancakes because they are thicker than French crapes but no where near as thick as bread-like Scotch or US pancakes.

Ingredients for gluten free pancakes is equal amounts of

Eggs

Milk

Cornflower – you will need to keep slowly adding more cornflower and blending until you get your desired consistency.

Top with masses of sugar and lemon juice.

Here’s The Bloke being a right tosser. 😉 I managed one perfect flip and then tossed the second one so enthusiastically, it landed on the floor – on the other side of the kitchen! 🤣

Hope you have a flipping good time!

Bol Plant Based Dinner Boxes

Whilst shopping online at Tesco I stumbled across the Bol range of dinner boxes, which are plant based ready-meals in a cardboard tray (thankfully not plastic, which is a bit of a deal-breaker for me).

Fire Roasted Cauliflower-Tikka Masala

The Tika Masala wasn’t quite sweet enough and I had no idea where the ‘sweet pickled onions’ were!? I did really like the combination of ingredients though.

Caribbean Jerk, Rice and Peas

This tasted like it was homemade comfort food at its best.

Thai Panang Coconut Curry

I thought this contained too much lemongrass and citrus flavour and not enough coconut so I added two pinches of sugar. The butternut squash was cooked perfectly.

South Indian Spiced Chickpea Curry

Again, the flavour of citrus overwhelmed the other flavours, which I balanced by adding some sugar.

Overall

I noticed that every meal had a lot of ‘leafy greens’ in them, which I didn’t mind but it was rather repetitive.

I loved all of the chutneys and used them on the rice and greens. I don’t usually like quinoa but mixed with rice it tasted lovely.

I’d buy these again because they are a quick and simple way of getting vegetarian and dairy free, balanced meals for one, which I’d never be able to cook for my self.

Rating 4/5
