Banana muesli muffins (vegan)

Banana muesli muffins (vegan)

I am loving the warm weather that the UK has been blessed with recently. Seriously, I won’t hear a word of this ‘it’s too hot’ nonsense. It is glorious! But whilst I love the warm weather it is playing havoc with my fruit bowl. Honestly, […]

Vegan mango gin flip

Vegan mango gin flip

I love an egg white based cocktail but they aren’t the kind of thing that you can make all the time, unless you’re also going to make custard all the time (or something else to use up all those leftover egg yolks). Some people are […]

Sweet potato & miso soup

Sweet potato & miso soup

I eat gallons of soup during the winter months. Seriously, I get through vats of the stuff. It’s so quick and easy, especially creamy blended soups, you can have yourself a warming veg packed meal ready within 30 minutes or so from start to finish. […]

Vegan haggis

Vegan haggis

Every year Mr C convinces me to cook Burns Night supper for him, playing on his Scottish heritage. I’m always very happy to do so on the proviso that we have a veggie-friendly haggis. With only two of us, cooking a haggis each would seem […]

Chocolate and peanut butter banana bread (vegan)

Chocolate and peanut butter banana bread (vegan)

I’m totally converted to vegan banana bread, I always get better results from it than from my more traditional recipe and I’m really not sure that I can tell the difference as far as the flavour is concerned. That’s especially true of this recipe, which […]

Pumpkin chocolate cake (vegan)

Pumpkin chocolate cake (vegan)

When we lived in America people would get very excited about the fact that on 1st November all of the Halloween candy in the shops would be super-cheap. I’m not sure that you could make candy corn cheap enough for me to eat it! We […]

Crispy tofu tacos – with avocado coleslaw

Crispy tofu tacos – with avocado coleslaw

Before I lived in the States I only ever really thought of tacos as the hard, crunchy shells you buy from the supermarket and fill with chilli and cheese. I was utterly oblivious to the world of deliciousness which ‘proper’ tacos provide, there are so […]

Maple tofu bao buns

Maple tofu bao buns

I love these sweet, soft, fluffy pillows of dough but it’s not always easy to find non-meat versions. The last time we were in NYC we did a food crawl (what we do when there are just too many great places to eat and not […]

Vegan banana, coconut and poppyseed cake

Vegan banana, coconut and poppyseed cake

I can’t get over how well this turned out. I’m always a little bit apprehensive when I make up a vegan cake recipe, it’s a little bit out of my comfort zone but I do enjoy the challenge. This (in my opinion) is actually better […]

Berry avocado trifle

Berry avocado trifle

Avocados on this side of the pond seem to taste so much better than the ones we get in the UK so I’m making it my mission to eat as many as I can before we move back this summer. Quick, easy and a little […]
