Eminence Beauty Products

I had a gorgeous facial in Fremantle using Eminence products. It's all natural and made in Hungary, all ingredients are grown in their organic farms so there is 100% no testing on animals and they use sustainable farming.

During my treatment they used;

Bright Skin Cleaners

Soy & Agave Stir-Fry

This simple stir-fry can bemade with whatever you have lying around. This sauce also doubles for a great tofu marinade and skewer sauce.

1 tsp mince garlic
1 tsp minced ginger
1 Tbls sweet chilli sauce (optional)

Add onions and garlic and fry unil clear.
Meanwhile whisk sauce ingredients together in a bowl. Add more of any ingredient to taste.
Add tofu and carrots and fry until tofu is browned and carrots are soft.
Add other vegetables last to keep the crunch.
As soon as they are heated through take off heat and stir through sauce.
Serve with rice or rice noodles.

Vegan Lunchmeat Pasta Sauce

I used my leftover Vegan Lunchmeat to bulk up a plain pasta sauc, like mini meatballs, and served it with Garlic Bread instead of pasta. I used some vegan Parmesan cheese to top.

Vegan Meatloaf Pasta Sauce


For sauce;
1 large jar tomato paste
1/4 cup red wine
1 Tbls mixed herbs
salt & pepper to taste
1 Tbls sugar
1 clove garlic, crushed

For filling;
Vegan Lunchmeat, diced or crumbled
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
oil for frying


For filling;
In large frying pan heat the oil on medium and fry onions and garlic until onion is clear.
Add Vegan Lunchmeat and fry until gold brown then remove from heat.

For sauce;
In a medium saucepan heat through tomato paste and red wine on a low-medium heat.
Use tomato paste jar to add some hot water to the mix thinning it out to desired amount.
Stir through garlic, sugar, herbs, salt and pepper.

Once sauce is heated through stir through filling and serve with pasta or garlic bread.
