Sweet potato hummus avocado pomegranate sourdough sandwich at Brünch – a breakfast that wakes up your tastebuds with the full range of the flavour palate. Their sourdough is delicious and from Oliver’s Bakery.
My weekend getaway at Wilderness Festival was spontaneous to say the least. A friend told me that the charity War Child was still looking for festival volunteers a couple of days before the festival was about to kick off. As a huge festival fan with a tiny wallet I jumped at the first opportunity.
If you don’t want to miss out on all the summer festival fun but don’t have extra money to spend I recommend checking which charities are looking for festival volunteers and what they’re offering in exchange for your work. We got to go to the festival for free and received meal vouchers for the food stalls.
England surprised us with a gloriously sunny weekend of which we savoured every single second. We started each day with a dip in the icy lake, the most refreshing morning ritual you can imagine, especially after a long night on the dance floor. Then we warmed up in the sun, sipping a cup of steaming hot coffee, ready to tackle the new festival day.
Not knowing how many vegan options the festival stalls would have to offer I prepared a few easy snacks at home to keep me going throughout the festival. I opted for dried cinnamon bananas (so good!), crispy spiced chickpeas, a big bag of trail mix and lots of bread and hummus!
Once at the festival though, we found a different vegan-friendly food stall at every corner and I ended up taking some of the snacks back home again.
And as food obsessed as I am, I had to try EVERYTHING and of course, I documented every bite for you guys, too. Wilderness gave me some serious savoury breakfast inspiration, so expect to find more of that on MVK soon.
Vegan Margarita Pizza at Pizza Tabun – a thin and crispy base with tomato sauce, cashew cheese and tahini.
Vegan blackberry and pear crumble at the Crumble Shack – the next day I treated myself to another one, this time an elderflower and gooseberry crumble. Delicious!
I can’t remember the name of the stall but they created the most amazing breakfast sourdough sandwiches. I left feeling rather breakfast inspired.
A vegan hoisin duck sushi roll at Happy Maki – an all-vegan sushi stall.
The last night’s headliners were the psychedelic rock band The Flaming Lips with one of the craziest shows I’ve ever seen: neon lights, light-up costumes, kaleidoscope projections, giant butterfly dolls and blow-up rainbows. Needless to say, we had one hell of a weekend.
