I love experimenting with different ingredients in my cooking. When the folks at Indian spice brand Spicica sent me their garam masala spice to try out, I was excited by the possibilities. Continue reading “Masala Tofu Scramble – The Ultimate Vegan Brunch”
Valentine’s Schmalentines. Anyone with me?
And no, it’s not because I’m single. Even when I’ve been in relationships at this time of year, I’ve found the whole Valentine’s Day thing a bit cheesy and naff. (If you’re into it, that’s totally cool! You do you.)
But last year everything changed…
I love a good smoothie. Though I usually tend to opt for fruity flavours, this time I went in a slightly different direction and concocted a tasty coffee-based alternative. Continue reading “Sweet and Simple Banana-Mocha Breakfast Smoothie”
I’m a massive fan of nachos. But eating corn chips drenched in cheese and topped with refried beans isn’t exactly the kind of dish I can eat regularly without my thighs tripling in size. Continue reading “Smoky Black Bean and Broccoli Nacho Bowl”

I’ve made cashew “ricotta” once before and it was delicious, so I really don’t know why it’s taken me so long to make it again. When I found sliced butternut squash designed to replace lasagna sheets, I knew I had to try it out.
I made this dish on Christmas Day as a festive side but I’ve been a bit lazy about blogging for the past couple of weeks… Luckily, there’s still plenty of the cooler months left to enjoy this wintery dish! Continue reading “Recipe: Easy Root Vegetable Gratin”
I didn’t discover my love for parsnips until just a few years ago. I don’t remember ever having them growing up and they certainly didn’t feature during our summery Christmas lunches in Australia. Continue reading “Recipe: Caramelised Baby Parsnips”
Sometimes you just need a big plate of comfort food for dinner. Hearty, spicy and smoky, these loaded jacket potatoes with beans really hit the spot on a chilly winter’s evening. Continue reading “Recipe: Loaded Jacket Potatoes with Smoky Beans”
Lasagne is one of my favourite comfort dishes. It’s hearty, it’s flavourful, and it’s deliciously cheesy. And yes, it can be vegan. Continue reading “Recipe: Easy Vegan Lasagne with Basil Pesto”
With the festive season almost upon us, I wanted to share some seasonal favourites. I had to include neeps & tatties partly because I find the name so adorable but also because it’s a relatively easy side dish, or great way to use up any leftover root veg from your festive feast. Continue reading “Recipe: Festive Neeps & Tatties”
The festive season may be over but that doesn’t mean that chestnuts cease to exist or that cranberry sauce must fade into oblivion for another eleven months. Continue reading “Recipe: Wintery Vegan Nut Loaf”
