My vegan picnic

About 3 months ago i turned 17! For while i was very unsure about how to celebrate my birthday (i’m not the party type!) but soon enough i came up with the idea to have a cute vegan picnic in our backyard.

Vegan chocolate cupcakes with coconut caramel & chocolate frosting

Veggie fritters are the perfect dish to serve as a snack to guests as a starter or to serve as a side to dish. They’re cheap to make, easy to cook and taste delicious. I was having trouble thinking of a recipe that would go along side this dish nicely and my dad suggested a tomato relish which makes complete sense!
