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…

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 Garlic Naan

Indian food is amazing. It’s actually incredible. So much flavour, so much heart, so much spice. My two favourite ( and embarrassingly simple) things to eat when going for an Indian are: A: Poppadoms & Mango Chutney – I count this as one thing as the two are inextricable soulmates in my eyes. B: Garlic…

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 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…

Best Ever Bagels

Bagels, bagels, bagels!! WE WANT BAGELS. My cinnamon sugar doughnuts recipe caused an influx of ‘I love you for these but I also hate you’ comments. So I thought, I need to give the people what they want, and they clearly enjoy round-beige-bakes-with-a-hole-in-the-middle. The humble bagel was the answer – and when is it not?…

Creamy Almond and Coconut Butter

What do you do when you find a giant bag of almonds shoved to the back of your cupboard? – Ya make that goooood nut butter. I wanted to give this almond butter some sort of twist. I remember picking up a jar of Meridian Coconut and Peanut Butter a while back and being so…
