Icelandic ‘Happy Marriage’ Cake | Hjónabandssaela

Icelandic ‘Happy Marriage’ Cake | Hjónabandssaela

I’d been itching to try this recipe for ages. Look at the whimsical name! I was instantly intrigued. It’s a bit of a misnomer really though; it isn’t a cake at all, at least not in the traditional sense. It’s actually the perfect cross between […]

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 […]

Veganising Nigella: The Ginger & Walnut Carrot Cake

Veganising Nigella: The Ginger & Walnut Carrot Cake

Sound the fangirl klaxon: Nigella Lawson is a bit of an idol of mine. I love reading her books and it feels a bit slack simply calling her a food writer – frankly, she’s the doyenne of modern food literature. As a child, my grandparents […]

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 […]

Easy No-Cook Vegan Milks: Cashew and Oat // Vegan Basics

Easy No-Cook Vegan Milks: Cashew and Oat // Vegan Basics

Making my own milk was one of the first things I wanted to tackle when I went vegan. I didn’t want to rely on shop-bought milk (although to be fair you can’t really go wrong with Tesco’s Organic Soy Milk – nothing funny added to […]

Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding – vegan // slow cooker

Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding – vegan // slow cooker

It’s nearly Christmas! How’s your December going so far? I know I say every year how much I enjoy the festive season but I really do. Twinkling fairy lights and the smell of cinnamon wafting through the air makes me feels so warm and cosy […]

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 […]

Pumpkin Spice Cake with Orange Zest Glaze

Pumpkin Spice Cake with Orange Zest Glaze

You know it’s properly Autumn when you start thinking about pumpkins! Most pumpkins bought for Hallowe’en carving purposes are definitely not worth the effort of cooking (they are grown for size, not taste – although to be fair, pumpkin flesh tastes of virtually nothing anyway; […]

Instant Vegan Condensed Milk // Vegan Basics

Instant Vegan Condensed Milk // Vegan Basics

Sweetened condensed milk is one of those naff ingredients that is actually pretty handy to have in the cupboard as the key ingredient for all kinds of tooth-rotting deliciousness such as caramel, no-churn ice cream, banoffee pie and fudge. Recipes like salted caramel millionaires – definitely one of […]
