Here’s another post of more lovely vegan food eaten out in Brighton. We had another visit to Purezza for lunch with Chris’ family and to our local vegan cafe- Green Kitchen for breakfast with my parents when they stopped en route to the airport.
Every time I go to Purezza, or we get a pizza delivery from there, I always like to try something new. I wasn’t feeling a full pizza and so I decided to go for their ‘Pure Bowl,’ which was consisted of organic quinoa, marinated butternut squash, chickpeas, apples and kale, topped with a cashew cream dressing. The bowl was so delicious, all the flavours went so well together and I would definitely get this again! I also went for the garlic bread (it’s on the starter part of the menu). Chris went for the Pesto Manifesto pizza- pesto, red onions, fried courgettes, pine nuts, marinated spinach leaves & cherry tomatoes (not pictured). We shared an amazing raw tiramisu for dessert! As always, we had another great meal out at Purezza.
I love going out for breakfast or brunch at Green Kitchen. They have such an extensive breakfast menu- again, I’m working my way through the menu so I got to try some new things on our most recent visit! I couldn’t decide between the french toast and the pancakes with banana and yoghurt (there was also a choice of ‘bacon and maple syrup’) and as my mum also wanted to try the french toast, we got a plate to share. I did end up eating most of the toast though! Both Chris and my mum went for the Full English and my Dad went for the garlic shallots on seeded toast. Both of my dishes were so sweet and tasty. The french toast definitely was the highlight of the two though!
The last place I want to quickly mention is The Plant Room . They have a location in Brighton Square and one in Hove/Portslade. Although, this is just ultimately an espresso bar, they have a counter full of vegan and vegetarian treats. On the day that we went, I’d say that 85% of the cakes and little snacks were vegan. Everything was clearly labelled too. The cafe is lovely and bright and is filled with line work artwork and plants. This is a great place to catch up with friends, or to have a nice coffee and sit down during the day. We shared a delicious apricot danish and had a soy latte and oat flat white. A lovely way to warm up and hide from the rain on a Saturday afternoon!
