Perfectly Fluffy Banana Pancakes – Vegan

Perfectly Fluffy Banana Pancakes – Vegan

I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to share my beloved pancake recipe with you, but then it’s fair to say I’m a notoriously slow blogger. I hope you’ll agree that this one is well worth the wait! We love a pancake breakfast more […]

Speculaas-Spiced Christmas Granola (Oil Free)

Speculaas-Spiced Christmas Granola (Oil Free)

Granola is one of those things you quickly stop buying when you realise how simple and inexpensive it is to make your own. I’ve never been much of a breakfast person (unless it’s a Special Weekend Breakfast when pancakes or waffles play a part) so […]

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Waffles + Quick Chocolate Sauce

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Waffles + Quick Chocolate Sauce

Probably the last of the pumpkin recipes for this year, I give you a sweet-toothed vegan’s champion breakfast – pumpkin spice waffles and a bonus chocolate sauce! Waffles are still a novelty in this house; I make pancakes a lot for special family breakfasts (that […]

Eat-All-Week Caribbean Rice & Peas

Eat-All-Week Caribbean Rice & Peas

I can eat this by the bucketload. Rice and Peas is a traditional dish in countless regions, but most people tend to think of the gorgeous Caribbean islands where it is a staple food and routinely served up as a side dish to pretty much […]

Scrambled Tofu + ‘Egg’ Mayo // Vegan Basics

Scrambled Tofu + ‘Egg’ Mayo // Vegan Basics

Happy New Year! How’s January going for you so far? (Doesn’t it feel like the longest month EVER?!) I hope 2018 will be a great year for all of us. January has kicked off with a record-breaking number of sign-ups for the annual Veganuary – […]

Vegan Sweetcorn Fritters + Summer Peach Salsa

Vegan Sweetcorn Fritters + Summer Peach Salsa

This is the definition of a perfect lunch – at least it is for me! I’ve been making variations of sweetcorn fritters since I was a teenager, and I can’t think why it’s taken me so long to share this easy recipe here. My daughter […]

Freestyle Falafel

Freestyle Falafel

I did a killer yoga workout this morning. Although I am quietly shedding excess weight since embarking on my vegan diet this month, my main goal is to tone up again after the chocolate-induced sag of Christmas! I was so hungry after all the stretching today, […]

Easy Lunch Time Buddha Bowl // Vegan Basics

Easy Lunch Time Buddha Bowl // Vegan Basics

I am not a huge fan of a weekday lunch. By which I mean, I am not a huge fan of a solo lunch, as my husband is usually either working or sleeping (big thumbs down for random shift patterns) and my daughter is at […]

Pea, Mint & Asparagus Quiche (Vegan)

Pea, Mint & Asparagus Quiche (Vegan)

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the last throes of summer – the unusually warm September afternoons have seen my little girl and I still skipping around in summer frocks and enjoying pink sunsets from our little south London balcony. This week however has started off pretty […]

Coronation Chickpeas

Coronation Chickpeas

Aaah, Coronation Chicken. How I love thee. I say ‘chicken’, but I must confess I have never tried it in its original form. I first made it a few years back during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations (because it’s the ubiquitous street party side-dish, right?) […]

10-Minute Peanut & Sweet Chilli Noodles

10-Minute Peanut & Sweet Chilli Noodles

This quantity makes a good solo adult lunch, or two portions for my five year old daughter. This is her favourite lunch, and has been for a long time. I don’t mind at all – it’s super easy to make and packed with protein from […]

Jumble Frittata

Jumble Frittata

My daughter started school yesterday. As I wiped away my tears and waved goodbye to my beautiful, beaming four year old baby, my thoughts immediately turned to lunchtime. Would she be able to open up her brand new lunch bag unaided? Would she remember to […]
