Yes it’s the scone in the box. It is 100% vegan. I had such high hopes. I’m going to try the food at their other location. I hope something is good. It would be sad if it isn’t. It’s only 15 minutes from me.

@KLS52 I agree neither the ice cream or scone look food porn worthy. Perhaps you should have posted the pix in the Gripe thread? :D

Yeah I never know where to put stuff...I was trying to be consistent since the pics from their website looked so good and they were in here. I thought I’d keep the review in the same thread 😁

I had the soft serve today! It was good but not great. The ice cream itself was as tasty as any of the almond milk supermarket non dairies. I had it dipped in chocolate hard shell which ruined it. The chocolate was very waxy and off putting. Plus the machine wasn’t working properly and it was too soft so they had to put it in a cup. Bad first impression but I didn’t really mind. I also had a lemon poppy scone that was not very good. It might have been stale. I will try again though. I like that they’re trying and I want to support the cause, but I would have been embarrassed if I brought my omni friends there. They would not have been impressed. I really need to find vegan food/goodies that will impress omnis.

Been craving something like this. I miss the amazing hummus at the Greek restaurant where I used to live. I posted on our town FB page for recommendations for a restaurant with good hummus and someone posted her recipe and said it was excellent. I’m going to try and make my own but it never tastes as good as the Greek restaurant’s.

It's quite easy to make. Do you know why it's not as tasty?

I really like salad bowls and it's a pure delight to make different ones during the hot summer months. There is so much choice
of fresh vegetables during this season.

I don’t. It was easy. I followed a couple of recipes and tried to tweak them to my taste. I don’t “like” tahini in general so I tried reducing the amount and even omitting it but it didn’t help. I also don’t like if it’s too lemony so I adjusted if the recipe called for lemon juice. The Greek restaurant hummus was just so fresh, smooth and creamy. There was no strong taste of any one ingredient.
I’m going to try again. I bought the ingredients. I will try the recipe that I got from the woman in town.

Oh yeah, the most success I had was when I added vegan sour cream to it. The consistency was really good and it had a mild flavor. But I feel like adding sour cream takes away from any nutritional value so I don’t want to keep doing that.

I also don't add tahini because I dislike it. I usually make quite a simple puree which is quite similar to the following recipe :

That looks like a good recipe. I like that it has aquafaba! Maybe I’ll do this one first. I’m picking up groceries and ordered some kalamata olives. I think making some fresh flatbread is in order too.

That looks amazing but not sure I could do the pomegranate seeds. I love the taste of pomegranate but I usually eat them over the sink so that I can spit the seeds out after I get out all of the juice lol. 🤦🏻‍♀️
When I was in Cape Cod last, I had avocado toast at a small cafe. It had a balsamic drizzle. I wasn’t sure I’d like it but it was really good!

I would say that the pomegranate seeds are more decorative compared to the other ingredients.:)

The pomegranate seeds are the only thing I could eat from that. I got a little nauseous just reading it--is that a tomato? :no: :lala:
