Finding vegan goodies. A visit to British shop Stonemanor, Everberg

Shop review #17 – Stonemanor is a large British Store, where you can find a lot of products that are regularly sold in British shops, but which may be more difficult to find in regular Belgian shops. It is in between Brussels and Leuven, on the outskirts of the community of Everberg (120km from Bruges). There’s also a Stonemanor shop in Waterloo. We were there a couple of montsh ago, on our route to Leuven (Louvain), and took some time to discover the shop. Food items are downstairs, on the first floor you can find books (no vegan cookbooks though), baking tools, culinary decoration, posters etc, and on the top floor beds and accessories (didn’t verify if any of it was vegan).

Sausage plaits with savoy cabbage and quinoa

We found these sausage plaits at the British shop Stonemanor in Everberg (in between Leuven en Brussels). Stonemanor sells a variety of frozen Linda McCartney products, which are unfortunately not commonly found in Belgian shops.

We had these with savoy cabbage (from our garden!) and quinoa. With some ground cashews on top of the savoy. They were quite nice. And actually very cheap (1,75€ a piece). I wouldn’t eat these every day, or every week even, but it’s a perfect thing to have at hand in the freezer when you don’t have that much time or inspiration to really cook.
