A summer spent on fire escapes and roof tops that may or may not be yours is still a summer spent outside, and that's all that counts. Before departing for a few weeks in Scotland, I went with Nina to see Charlotte at her amazing flat in Brixton. Each armed with a chopping board and a mixing bowl, we somehow managed to whip up this roof top vegan picnic before 7pm, leaving as much time as possible to devour it before the sun went down!
Charlotte mixed a tin of chickpeas with two teaspoons of mint sauce, a handful of cherry tomatoes, half a red onion and a little fresh mint. A combination I've never even heard of and absolutely delicious- perfect for cutting through a rich guacamole and oily olives.
I made a rough and ready guacamole with avocados from Electric Avenue.
We mixed tomatoes and artichoke for something to top our doorstop bread with.
Charlotte chopped herbs from her windowsill and mixed with olive oil, boiled potatoes and salt and pepper, for a quick, warm potato salad.
All eaten alongside the Brixton skyline.
