Mushroom Stifado and Herb Bulgur, a great vegan Mediterranean dish.

More visitors due next week, so back into recipe preparation to make sure we wow them with a fabulous range of vegan meals. First on the menu is the Mushroom Stifado.

I’ve chosen this because we used to all go out and have a mezze, which had a little bit of everything from the Greek menu and this dish is a real winner in my book.  The mushrooms really soak up the sauce and I know my in-laws will love it! Tonight I’m having a go at veganising the infamous Moussaka.

I shall of course have a medley of sweet treats on the go, mainly the chocolate cupcakes with coffee frosting and I’m going to attempt a festive mint icecream this afternoon (I shall let you know how I get on!) and some Christmas Florentines which I might do tomorrow. Need to keep them sweet….
