Giving it a go

It would be a bit rubbish if I had married a veggie and instantly converted myself. That is just not the kind of person I am. However, living with a veggie has meant I have had to adapt and has opened my eyes to a whole world of wonderful food I had never experienced before. I love cooking and eating and sharing this with the person I share my life with is therefore obviously important to me, so this has meant when I cook for us both at home, I cook veggie. I am not dead set on becoming a vegetarian right now and am not sure if I will in the future but I have been so inspired by the many vegetarian/vegan blogs out there that I was itching to start my own. So here we go.

Grape and lychee bubble tea

Chinese restaurants often serve this lovely drink called bubble tea. It comes in many flavours and is basically a juice drink with sweet tapioca pearls that sink to the bottom.

- Boil 10 cups of water in a saucepan
- Add 1 cup tapioca pearls
- Boil until the pearls have expanded
- Turn the heat down, put a lid on and simmer for 10mins
- Meanwhile put ice in 4 tall glasses
- Chop into quarters 1 large tin of lychees reserving the juice
- Split the lychees, pearls and lychee juice evenly between the 4 glasses
- Top up each glass with red grape juice and stir
