Peanut butter and chocolate energy bites

Peanut butter and chocolate energy bites

Sometimes your day needs a little pick-me-up but you don’t always want to rely on sugary snacks and chocolate bars (even if they are delicious). These are a really good alternative, quick and easy to make, full of fibre and pretty tasty to boot. I’m […]

Peanut butter and banana pancakes (vegan)

Peanut butter and banana pancakes (vegan)

It’s the last day of veganuary. How did you do? If you just started to have one meat-free day a week I think you can be pretty proud of yourself. Getting a bit more fruit and veg into our diets can only be a good […]

Roasted veggie grain bowls with creamy tahini dressing

Roasted veggie grain bowls with creamy tahini dressing

This is one of my new favourite dinners. Not only is it truly tasty but eating it makes me feel all sorts of virtuous! I love the chewy, nutty fibre rich grains paired with the slightly sweet roasted vegetables but it’s the subtle spices and […]

Jackfruit pancakes

Jackfruit pancakes

Just because you’re taking part in veganuary doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on your favourite Friday night treats. I’m a big fan of jackfruit, it’s so easy and convenient to prepare and is a great base for all sorts of marinades. I […]

Minestrone Soup

Minestrone Soup

I absolutely adore this recipe, it’s wonderfully versatile and makes great use of whatever seasonal produce is available. You can switch the vegetables in and out depending on what you have, what’s in season and what you do (or don’t) like. For example I can’t […]

Apple sauce chocolate muffins

Apple sauce chocolate muffins

I love a recipe that’s accidentally vegan. I often find that they tend to be the least ‘detectably vegan’ recipes too. These only came about because I had a batch of applesauce that I desperately wanted to get out of the freezer to make way […]

Nut Butter duo

Nut Butter duo

I am pretty certain that I could eat my body weight in nut butters (sometimes straight from the jar). The problem is that so many of them are made with palm oil. I do try really, really hard not to buy products that use palm […]

Kiwi and avocado salsa

Kiwi and avocado salsa

  This is such a great accompaniment to grilled or pan-fried fish, crispy tofu, in tacos or even as a tangy alternative to guacamole with some crunchy tortilla chips. My home-grown chilis are pretty fierce this year so I actually only use half but if […]

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 […]
