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 […]

Aubergine, barley & miso stew

AVOCADO AND RASPBERRY THICKSHAKE

AVOCADO AND RASPBERRY THICKSHAKE

CHOCO-MOLE – Mexican spiced avocado chocolate mousse

CHOCO-MOLE – Mexican spiced avocado chocolate mousse

I do feel a bit of a fraud describing this as a mousse. It’s not really as airy as a mousse, the texture is almost like ganache, but that makes it feel all the more rich and indulgent. And no, it doesn’t taste like avocado. […]

STICKY EGGLESS GINGER CAKE

STICKY EGGLESS GINGER CAKE

Sometimes my cravings strike with very poor timing. Such as this, when my stomach decided that it would really quite enjoy a slice of Jamaican style ginger cake. Just after I had used up the last of my eggs in something else. I know I […]
