Chocolate Mousse Bombes – 2 Ways (Vegan Christmas Series)

No Christmas is complete if you don’t regret every decision you’ve ever made by the time you’ve finished eating. OK, I know it’s not ALL about food, but this is a vegan food blog, so that’s what we’re focusing on.

Leek and potato soup with crispy croutons (Vegan Christmas Series)

Leek and potato soup with crispy croutons (Vegan Christmas Series)

Soup is so easy and simple to make, and just so much more delicious when it’s homemade. For a perfect light starter or lunch, soup is the one, and this vegan leek and potato soup with crispy croutons is the perfect vegan Christmas starter.

Roasted Red Pepper and Butternut Squash Vegan Pâté (Vegan Christmas Series)

Roasted Red Pepper and Butternut Squash Vegan Pâté (Vegan Christmas Series)

Ok, so you’ve got your vegan Christmas main meal sorted, but what about the starter? It’s not Christmas if you’re not about to fall into a food coma, so a starter is a must.

Vegan Christmas Series – Main course

Vegan Christmas Series – Main course

IT’S CHRISTTTTMASSSSSS! OK, not quite, but it’s getting closer and that means it’s time to start to plan the big day. From the decorations down to the food, Christmas requires a lot of planning to go smoothly, but as the best day of the year, […]

Treasure Island Rum Cocktail

Treasure Island Rum Cocktail

Can you ever beat a really good rum cocktail? Honestly I’m not sure you can, and this one in particular will really help you get your night started.

Vegan Sage and Onion Plait (Vegan Christmas series)

Vegan Sage and Onion Plait (Vegan Christmas series)

This is part of the Vegan Christmas series. Ever since I stopped eating meat over 12 years ago, whenever it’s been our Christmas meal, or even just a roast, I’ve always only eaten the veg. I’ve never felt the need to replace the ‘main’ (meat) part […]

Cranberry sauce (Vegan Christmas series)

Cranberry sauce (Vegan Christmas series)

This is part of the Vegan Christmas series. Cranberry sauce, whilst is always served at my family Christmas, isn’t something I’d ever really eat. Mostly I suppose because I’d usually just stick to the veggies. But last Christmas I finally put some on my plate […]

Vegan Cauliflower Cheese (Vegan Christmas series)

Vegan Cauliflower Cheese (Vegan Christmas series)

This recipe is part of my Vegan Christmas series. What’s Christmas without taking a healthy vegetable and then pushing it in the complete opposite direction and making it saucy and cheesy? Cauliflower cheese has been always one of my absolute favourites at Christmas, and when I […]

Vegan Creamy Peas (Vegan Christmas series)

Vegan Creamy Peas (Vegan Christmas series)

This recipe is part of the Vegan Christmas series. Peas. There’s something about them that I can’t help but like. But lets be honest, they can be a little boring, and I could think of nothing worse than just having a portion of boring peas […]

The Perfect Roast Potatoes and Parsnips (Vegan Christmas series)

The Perfect Roast Potatoes and Parsnips (Vegan Christmas series)

This is part of my Vegan Christmas series. Nothing quite says it’s time for a Christmas meal than roast potatoes and parsnips. Whilst I’m definitely more a parsnip girl than potato, I still wouldn’t pass up a perfectly crisp and fluffy roasty.

Swede and Carrot Mash (Vegan Christmas series)

Swede and Carrot Mash (Vegan Christmas series)

This recipe is part of my Vegan Christmas series. This has been a staple in our family Christmas’s for years. In fact, I can never remember a time when this wasn’t part of our Christmas meal.

Vegan Satay Sauce

Vegan Satay Sauce

This is one of my favourite meals because the vegan satay sauce is so good. Super peanuty, it becomes a great main meal and is an easy weekday dinner idea.

Raw Vegan Chocolate Cups

Raw Vegan Chocolate Cups

I love dark chocolate. I’ve built up my tolerance to the point where I can quite happily eat an entire bar of 85% dark chocolate. I never really get when people say that they only eat one square of dark chocolate because it satisfies their cravings and […]

Vegan Condensed Milk

Vegan Condensed Milk

I’ve been doing some recipe practicing and for one of my recipes I needed to use condensed milk. I have seen online that you can get coconut condensed milk, but ordering things like that online (if you even can), can be expensive and not always […]

Raspberry and White Chocolate Toasties

Raspberry and White Chocolate Toasties

Raspberries and white chocolate are one of the most perfect combinations, which is what makes these toasties so delicious. If you have a toastie maker this is a great way to use it and make something a bit different.

Unicorn Honeycomb Lollipops

Unicorn Honeycomb Lollipops

Has anyone else seen the recent craze for ‘unicorn’ style food? Unicorn bark for example. It basically just consists of mixing loads of pretty colours together and adding some sprinkles and glitter to whatever you’re making.

Smokey Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burgers with Spicy Onion Rings

Smokey Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burgers with Spicy Onion Rings

It’s June, which means it’s summer, but if you looked outside you’d really think it was the middle of winter. It’s a bit disappointing really because I love being outside, especially in the evening, enjoying lazy summer barbecues. As it stands, that hasn’t really happened, […]

Chocolate, Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Chocolate, Peanut Butter Banana Bread

It’s been an odd week and so I’ve not been cooking as much as I would have liked too. I didn’t have much to do today, Sam was working and my family were out, so I decided I would take the opportunity to do some […]

Giant Jaffa Cake

Giant Jaffa Cake

Another day, another dessert. I do just love cooking and baking, so even though I keep wanting to make healthy desserts and food, I end up getting sucked into making ‘bad’ chocolately desserts instead.

Berry Chocolate Protein Smoothie

Berry Chocolate Protein Smoothie

Smoothies are one of my favourite ways to start the day. They’re quick and easy and I can drink them on the way to work as I’ll never get up early enough to eat at home; I need my sleep! I also find they’re a […]

Death by Chocolate – Dessert Nachos

Death by Chocolate – Dessert Nachos

Today I woke up deciding I really just need to focus a bit more on my gym training and on my diet, cleaning it up slightly and staying focused. I went for a run, had a healthy breakfast and lunch and did a HIIT workout […]

Miso Vegetable Skewers

Miso Vegetable Skewers

Miso paste is one of my favourites. I could just eat it straight out of the jar, and this miso glaze is something I make all the time. Marinating the vegetable skewers and then grilling them on the BBQ is the perfect summer BBQ side.

Summer Quinoa Salad

Summer Quinoa Salad

I’m not really a fan of leafy salads, I find them a bit boring. However, add in a grain instead and I’m much happier. This summer quinoa salad definitely hits the spot and is fab as a side dish with a BBQ or even just as […]

Smokey, Tangy Homemade Tomato Ketchup

Smokey, Tangy Homemade Tomato Ketchup

Tomato ketchup is a great accompaniment to almost everything. I made some baked tofu ‘chicken’ the other day for my dinner and wanted to get some extra veg into my meal. I decided to experiment with a tomato sauce and ended up with this – […]

The Best Vegan Doughnuts You’ll Ever Eat

The Best Vegan Doughnuts You’ll Ever Eat

Yeah so the title is quite a big statement, the BEST vegan doughnuts ever? But seriously, they’re so delicious, I would say they really are the best vegan doughnuts you’ll ever eat.

Deconstructed Banoffee Pie

Deconstructed Banoffee Pie

So Sunday is cheat day. Although if we’re going to be completely honest, ‘cheat day’ usually ends up as ‘cheat weekend’ as my healthy eating tends to wane from Friday night, getting increasingly worse until Sunday evening. Sunday is also the day I meal prep my […]
