So, here we have something super simple that my mum used to make to spread in our beach sandwiches. And, amazing as it might seem, only after 8 years without eating meat it came to my idea to make a vegan version of it! I know the vegan chorizos for some years now, the recipe is super simple, I’ve always loved it and only now it came to my mind! Who understands… And, on top of that, it turned out amazing! 😀

I thought making this paste for the exact same reason that my mum used to do: to make sandwiches to take to the beach. And I didn’t go to some ordinary beach. Me and the boyfriend went to Portinho da Arrábida beach, in Setúbal. It was the first time I went there and it’s so good! Even having a big amount of cars and a hard parking, it’s still amazing 🙂 The bad thing was that I was the driver, so I wanted to see the awesome views and I couldn’t 😦 it’s a winding road with precipices.

I love to take this full day trips and meet new places (as long as they are pretty :p). After spending a day in Arrábida, I was willing to spend some vacations there.
Sometimes you have such nice places not that far away from you and you simply don’t value them 🙂
