Sweet + Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Sweet + Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

I’m always gobsmacked when people throw away the seeds from pumpkins (or any squash). So this is just a quick post and not really a recipe; just a suggestion for all those seeds you may be left with after carving your pumpkins! All you have to […]

Fast’n’Fresh Supergreens Soup

Fast’n’Fresh Supergreens Soup

This post feels entirely appropriate as Honey woke up with a raging bout of tonsillitis this morning. She’s not the most gracious patient at any time, but as her birthday is tomorrow she’s frankly outraged. Fortunately for me, her go-to ‘poorly lunch’ is soup, and […]

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 […]

Easy Double Duty Dough: For Vegan Naans & Pizza

Easy Double Duty Dough: For Vegan Naans & Pizza

Who doesn’t love freshly made bread? Nothing beats it, but I know a lot of people are a bit nervous about having a go at home. If you’ve never made any kind of bread before, this is a great recipe to start with. And if […]

Green Chilli Hummus

Green Chilli Hummus

I never met a hummus I didn’t like, but let’s face it, the garlicky breath it leaves behind is enough to make a small child keel over. So when my husband returned from work last week not stinking and raving about this unusual green garlic-free […]

Chunky Best-Ever Vegan Macaroni Cheese

Chunky Best-Ever Vegan Macaroni Cheese

Macaroni cheese was always one of my favourite dishes when I was vegetarian, and I wasn’t about to give it up when I ditched dairy! I make this quite a lot for my daughter when she has a friend over for tea and I’m always […]

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 Jambalaya + Johnnycakes

Vegan Jambalaya + Johnnycakes

Anyone who has read this blog before will know that I love a one-pot meal, and if I can make it in the slow cooker, even better! This fab, flavoursome (and also pretty frugal) jambalaya is also quite versatile – you can enjoy it freshly […]

Kid-Friendly Katsu Curry (Vegan)

Kid-Friendly Katsu Curry (Vegan)

I only just recently found out about katsu curry. It’s a Japanese curry which is essentially a smooth mild sauce (think chip shop curry sauce, guys – sorry Japan) poured over breaded chicken, veggies and rice. I saw it mentioned again and again when I […]

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 […]

Wholewheat Fusilli Rapid Ragù – Our Favourite Speedy Supper

Wholewheat Fusilli Rapid Ragù – Our Favourite Speedy Supper

How’s your week going? I have spent most of it dressed in multiple layers of knitwear whilst clutching hot water bottles, slouching around the house like some frost bitten sloth. I don’t tolerate the cold particularly well (my most-used winter phrase is “I’ve got poor […]

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, […]
