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 […]

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 […]

Pumpkin Scones: Chocolate Chip or Cheesy!

Pumpkin Scones: Chocolate Chip or Cheesy!

This versatile (and Hallowe’en-appropriate) recipe was inspired by a batch of delicious pumpkin and chocolate chip cookies whipped up by my lovely friend James. I was trying to work out an unfussy recipe to use up the flesh scooped out of our obligatory Hallowe’en pumpkin, and […]

Easy Focaccia

Easy Focaccia

I put this recipe together this afternoon, when I realised we had no garlic bread to go with our pasta supper – and was also wondering what to do with the left over sun dried tomatoes lurking in the fridge! It turned out so amazingly […]
