Southwestern Black Bean “Cowboy” Chilli (Slow Cooker)

Southwestern Black Bean “Cowboy” Chilli (Slow Cooker)

As promised, here is another slow-cooker recipe, and definitely my current favourite – it tastes brilliant, and is incredibly easy to make! Slow cookers are FANTASTIC. Did I already mention that? Well it’s worth repeating. I am in love with my slow cooker, and this […]

Chickpea Curry (Chana Masala)

Chickpea Curry (Chana Masala)

I love this recipe – it was the first curry I ever made! I have no doubt it’s not quite ‘authentic’, but who cares when it’s got so much going for it. It’s super healthy, naturally vegan and I’ve been making it for about a […]

Cherry Brandy Christmas Cake (with icing guide)

Cherry Brandy Christmas Cake (with icing guide)

As Christmas is fast approaching, I’m excited to share my Christmas cake recipe, which, actually, is a fabulous fruit cake you could make any time. It has evolved over the best part of a decade and my strong sense of sparkly kitsch has led me […]

Slow Cooker Spicy No-Fry Refried Beans

Slow Cooker Spicy No-Fry Refried Beans

I’m beyond happy with this recipe. It’s a dream to make (i.e. you need to do almost nothing, except soak some beans) and makes enough refried beans to be used as a base for many meals over several days. It’s a super-frugal dish, fat free, […]

Chocolate Stout Loaf Cake (Vegan)

Chocolate Stout Loaf Cake (Vegan)

The thing about chocolate stout cake (universally known as ‘Chocolate Guinness Cake’ – more on that later) is that you can’t specifically pick out the stout. It just gives a kind of earthy, oomphy depth and tang to an otherwise ordinary chocolate cake. I don’t […]

No-Bake Rice Crispy Marshmallow Cake

No-Bake Rice Crispy Marshmallow Cake

Creating the ridiculously delicious – and, unusually, totally vegetarian – Grasshopper Pie was probably my greatest achievement last summer. Since discovering just how easy it is to replace gelatine-filled marshmallows with vegetarian-friendly Marshmallow Fluff (and a bit of tweaking), I was then keen to replicate […]

Flaky Tofu Thai Pie

Flaky Tofu Thai Pie

Now that autumn is upon us and the evenings are becoming a little bit more chilly, I thought it was time to post another comforting pie recipe! I’m mad about coconut and if I can find a way of incorporating into my cooking and baking, […]

Vegan Cawl (Welsh stew) with herby dumplings

Vegan Cawl (Welsh stew) with herby dumplings

Cawl is technically Welsh for soup, but it has evolved to become the catch-all term for any casserole, stew or broth. (If you’re unsure how to pronounce it, try saying Cowell – as in Simon Cowell – but without the ‘e’ sound. That’ll do.) I […]

Chickpea, Sweet Potato & Coconut Curry

Chickpea, Sweet Potato & Coconut Curry

This is a really warming, creamy, fragrant curry, and is now probably my favourite, having evolved for a couple of years with tweaks here and there. The chilli gives a lovely heat, nothing intense, just a pleasing kick – which you can increase (or decrease) […]

Mexican Pie (“Tamale Pie”)

Mexican Pie (“Tamale Pie”)

I adore Mexican food. Its sheer, happy simplicity and choice of vegetarian options including chillies, cheese dishes and salsas simply fill my heart with joy! Whether you like your food mind-blowingly hot or comfortingly mild, the colours of the rainbow shine through the dishes, from […]
