Surprising carrot cake muesli

Carrots for breakfast?? It’s good, I swear. I make these real nice healthy carrot cake cookies sometimes (recipe soon), and woke up today wanting to capture that sweet-spicy goodness in a cereal bowl. The absolute game-changer is the earl grey raisins: they are so juicy and fragrant! The recipe has the fresh part (carrots, banana,…

Virtuous lemon cheesecakes

We’re on the beans again guys! Now that the sun is out, I’m dabbling in some fresher, lighter desserts, and something lemony is a perfect spring treat. Most vegan cheesecakes are made with soaked cashews, which not only is real expensive, but are also pretty full of fat- not that that’s a big issue with a…

Very cunning vegan fish pie

Ok so this is going to sound a bit odd. I know. But the truth is that I made the closest thing you’ll ever get to a fish pie as a vegan, so if it’s wrong to make ‘fish’ out of white cabbage, I don’t want to be right. Fish pie is good because it’s…

Something a bit different: vegan birthday cards!

Hey gang, You may remember that I had a stall at a vegan market  a while ago, and in addition to many a delicous fudge, I also made some cute cards for vegans/vegetarians/animal lovers/plant eaters. To my delight, people thought they were really cute, so I decided to set up shop on Etsy, and open…

Wholesome squash and kale pasta bake

I got the idea of making a squash-y white sauce from Jamie O’s squash mac’n’cheese in his Superfood book, but for plant-eating amigos have taken a silky squash sauce and pimped it with a addictive crispy kale topping. Squash an kale are beautifully in season right now, and eating such a green and orange plate…

The most addictive Werther’s Original popcorn

It was a gloomy Friday night after a 55 hour working week, and I needed to kick off my weekend with a bang- or more accurately a pop. Sorry, that was corny… Waheyyy I’m on a pun roll, and that’s probably because I discovered a recipe for the best popcorn of my life and am…

Snazzy chocolate-berry ganache tart

Hey amigos. This weekend I felt like my family didn’t like me because I’m vegan, so I decided to make a yummy dessert to win them over after our Sunday roast (fig and walnut nut roast for me). This is a tart with a beautiful. slightly sweet, crumbly pastry, and filled with a lovely smooth…

Hearty sausage and kale fusilli

I have to say whilst I normally avoid using ‘pre-made foods’- both because they are more expensive and often have ingredients in don’t recognise them- but I really am a sucker for a few Linda McCartnet products. The rosemary and onion sausages allowed me to recreate one of my favourite dishes of the past, and…

5 hacks for slaying Veganuary

If you are trying our Veganuary, then well done! I hope that this will be a month  of delicious and healthy food for you. However, I know myself that it’s not that easy to cut out so many of the foods you’re used to eating in one fell swoop. So, here are some tips that…

Raw vanilla coconut crumble fudge

You may have tried my to-die-for vegan fudge a few months ago, which was a recipe of intense chocolatey goodness. I recently had a stall at a vegan market, and made lots of different decadent  vegan fudges for the occasion, so I though I’d share this in  time for you to make lovely fudgey gifts for…

Crazy good raw millionaire bites

I’m sure you’ve seen the raw millionaire’s shortbreads around, but I wanted to make something equally-  well, probably more– delicious, without spending  all my money on medjools and ground almonds. These little bites are perfect: a chewy oat and raisin base, splodged with a generous layer of vanilla peanut butter, and topped with a slick…

Festive fig and walnut nut roasts

This weekend I had my mini Christmas with my fella, before we go to our homes for actual Christmas. I took the opportunity to recipe test these sublime nut roasts in advance of the big day, and they came out so well. They are simple to make but are really hearty, and the occasional sweet,…

Stripey olive shepherd’s pie

I was craving shepherd’s pie so much this week, and boy oh boy did I come out with a banger in the end. It’s got your usual wholesome veggies and lentils, but I really think a small handful of olives adds an amazing savoury element and takes the dish to an extra level of tastiness….
