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 […]

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 – […]

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 […]

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 […]

Apple, Maple + Pecan Cake

Apple, Maple + Pecan Cake

I can’t believe how fast summer has gone. My baby starts back at school tomorrow – and to think at the beginning of the holidays I was a bit concerned about how I would keep her entertained for almost eight weeks! But I needn’t have […]

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 […]

Key Lime Pie – Vegan + No Bake

Key Lime Pie – Vegan + No Bake

Ooooh limes! We love you so much. You smell of Mexican summers, gin and tonics and lime-scented shortbread biscuits from Miami (I just so happen to have a recipe for those here). When my husband went vegan back in January, I was fully expecting him […]

Peanut Butter & Jam Flapjacks

Peanut Butter & Jam Flapjacks

I’m baaaaaack! To cut a long story short, my poor website was hacked to within an inch of its life – and I’m happy to report it’s now back to its usual lovely self. I have missed blogging, despite my trust in t’internet taking a […]
