Plantbased Live put on a show in Excel London and I had to go down to check out what new vegan products and brands I could find.
Here is a vlog of my experience:
I have spoken about New Roots before and will be doing a separate vlog and blog about them soon.
This is one of my go to vegan cheese brands and perfect for sharing on a cheese board. They look and taste completely delicious. New Roots are organic, raw, gluten free and vegan.
They sell – free the goat cheeze in nature flavour or olive oil, thyme and lavender – soft cheeze (camembert style) – fresh cheeze in greek style, herb de provence or pink pepper – aged cheeze nature and cream cheeze.

I discovered at Plantbased Live and love the idea and concept, Turmeric paste. They had a few samples of ways which you could use the paste. They had a turmeric lemonade I had never heard of that and it worked so well, a combination of sweet and spice. The other sample they had was the turmeric paste mixed with hummus, this also worked so well. There is so many ways you could use the paste. I was given one on the day so watch out for the recipes and blog I will be posting soon with those.

This was a wonderful product to come across vegan honey alternative with some fantastic flavours such as -vegan lavender honea – vegan fennel honea and – vegan orange blossom, they all have probiotics. I found the flavors quite subtle but I liked that as it wasn’t too overpowering, it was enough to give the light flavour aftertone. the consistency was like honey, it looked like honey and even tasted like honey and beautifully packaged.

This was a great show but as you already know I love vegan food shows as you discover so many new brands and products and this is why I love to vlog and blog to share my new finds with you all, hopefully you will try and enjoy them as much as I do. Plant based Live was smaller then the vegan shows I am usually used to but had a lot more new brands to discover.
A big thank you to Kasra Firouzyar on the camera
Peace and Love
