Eihh it has been a while that I did not post, the reason was because I spent some days on Capri, a small island in front of the Naples coast. The weather was great almost all the days and the food really good even for a vegan. The reason to go there was because of a spring school related to my job. To my great surprise the organizers took a lot of care and effort to arrange perfect vegan meals in every restaurant, so I felt not discriminated at all. Here I want to warmly thank Dario and Daniel for their efforts to accommodate a vegan in Italy.
Here there is a bit of what I ate for lunch…
Look at the ruccola leaves, really big!
An awesome, simple and tasty pasta made with aubergine tomato sauce. I am amazed about the flavour of such a simple mix of ingredients but definitively the quality of the tomatoes, aubergine that I ate during the week cannot be compared to what I can get here in The Netherlands. The tomato sauce was cooked at low fire with some garlic cloves for a long long time and the aubergine was soft and nicely cooked.
I had some hours left before my flight departure around Naples. Of course, I went to eat a good pizza in a traditional place founded in 1780, quite old. It is called La pizzeria Brandi. Did you know that marinara pizza (the one displayed in the photo above) is vegan by default?! I did not have to change anything from the ingredient list, awesome! It is basically tomato sauce, garlic, oregano, basil and olive oil. Yummy yummy….
