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….

Killer sweet potato and broccoli quesadillas

Ok,  to be fair I don’t know if you can actually call  them quesadillas without the queso, but these babies are too good for me to  care. They are a super satisfying and tasty lunch or dinner, taken to the next level with  the help of smoky tomato dip and guacamole on the side. Protein…

Old school stew and dumplings

Can you imagine my delight at discovering that dumplings are easily made vegan!? Stew and dumplings was always the highlight of my winter when I was younger, so I took this chilly weekend to recreate this homely and comforting bowl of goodness. I’ve used Atora vegetable suet (mainly just a mixture of vegetable fats), which…

Stuffed Halloween Squash

When I saw these little squash in Whole Foods (yeah I know, but they weren’t even expensive!), I couldn’t help but be seduced by their cute, Halloweenish charm. So, I got work inventing this really yummy dish: it’s 100% vegetables, but it’s so exciting and different, that any vegetarian or vegan will love you foerver if…

Splendid sweet potato & pesto lasagne

Y’all know I love a good lasagne,  but this one here might be my favourite yet. Sweet potato is one of my most beloved ingredients, and it makes this lasagne really hearty and unctious. Caramelised bright orange sweet potato, layered with garlicky tomato sauce, satisfying wholewheat pasta, and a creamy and fragant pesto white sauce….

Faster wholemeal garlic and coriander naan breads

Sometimes you need naan, especially on the side of a delicious curry. Naan bread is usually made with yoghurt or milk, as well as clarified butter. This one takes out the animal products and adds some lovely wholemeal flour in for extra fibre. It is subtley spiced with ground coriander, and gently brushed with garlic oil…

Happy, healthy apple crumble

This is what Sunday afternoons are made for. Apple crumble is one of my favourite comfort foods, and this one gives delicious sweet, nutty crunchiness, with just a spot of healthy fat, and zero refined sugar. It happens to be gluten free as well, although I have no problem with gluten. You can swap the…
