Mini Vegan Cheese and Chive Breads

I think one of the biggest put-offs of going vegan is the subsequent prohibition of cheese. And while some of the big brands have tried to recreate that rich texture and meltability, there’s still a long way to go before a lot of people will swap their mozzarella for not-zarella. But there are some decent…

Slow-cooked Black Bean, Quinoa and Red Wine Chilli (One-Pot)

If there’s just one reason to love the winter months it’s the hearty soups and stews that keep you warm and nourished. My mum gifted me a gorgeous Dutch oven for Christmas, so I was dying to take it on its maiden voyage. What I really wanted to do was test out it’s slow-cooking abilities,…

‘Ferrero Rocher’ Porridge

My festive sweet tooth and undying love for the chocolate/hazelnut combo produced this lovely breakfast yesterday. I’m not a massive fan of putting fruit in my porridge as I don’t enjoy the hot and cold contrast, but there is definitely a place in my heart for a bowl of oats. So after making some delicious…

Buckwheat Pancakes with Vegan Nutella

It’s finally Veganuary! An excellent excuse for me to get back on the blogging scene. We had an amazing Christmas holiday in Mauritius this year, and one of the highlights for everyone was the hotel pancakes. It was actual pancake mania – pancakes at breakfast, pancakes at lunch and pancakes at 4pm to tide you…

Vegan Keto Crackers and Cheese

I’m skeptical about this whole keto thing, but I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews from those on it around me, so I’m giving it a go. I have been told that it’ll be near ‘impossible’ to do keto on a vegetarian diet, never mind vegan. So I say “challenge accepted!” 🤗 My previous knowledge of…

Vegan White Chocolate and Raspberry Sponge Cake

What do you do with yourself on a rainy day? Relentless precipitation can leave you feeling sluggish. Like there’s nothing in the world that can be done that doesn’t involve going outside. I urge you – BAKE! Last Saturday was one of those exceptionally gloomy days that would make you forget sunshine ever existed. But…

Vegan Carrot Cake

My first ever taste of carrot cake was revolutionary. It quickly become a solid favourite. There’s just something so amazingly satisfying about the texture. It’s thick and dense but not so much that it feels heavy to eat. It also has one of your 5-a-day, so that makes it somewhat healthy, yeah? Anyone?? And the…

Vegan Hot Cross Buns

It’s almost Easter! Superfluous heaps of chocolate is just around the corner!! Like almost every other national holiday, Easter is a time for celebrating togetherness while eating shitloads of unhealthy food. Who can complain? I do love how the seasons weave in and out, and bring with them an excuse to make something I’d never…

Vegan Matcha Cookies

Green tea and chocolate – a matcha made in heaven, no? I’ve recently acquired something of a matchaddiction. I can’t get enough of the stuff, and the endless list of health benefits aren’t helping me stop. If you aren’t familiar with matcha, it’s basically super concentrated green tea – think 10 cups of green tea…

Vegan Irish Soda Bread

Ahh a taste of my childhood. I used to eat this toasted and smothered in butter before setting off for school. I didn’t realise how much I appreciated the stuff til I moved to England and couldn’t find it in the shops. Cry. Traditionally, Irish breads are made with buttermilk, and require no time to…
