Over the years I have made a few different varieties of cashew nut milk. This one is my absolute favourite for mixing into porridge, breakfast cereals or hot chocolates/chai lattes and any other mouth watering beverage. It is a slightly sweeter milk which I love for bringing out the flavour of these these warm treats. ..Read More
Do you ever wonder how many miles you've scrolled with your thumb? I have swapped incessant Insta scrolling in favour of reading real-life actual books after work.
In search of feeling zen, getting my OM on and being a bit more blissed out, I am making a real effort to reduce my use of technology in the evenings. I have even started a bookclub with some friends and am making my way through books at a rate that the Cookie Monster munches on those choc chip goodies.
Here are some book recommendations from fiction to biography to cooking…Read More
I am a self proclaimed hummus and curry queen! These are my two go-to dishes, that I continually make and experiment with. It tends to be 'flavour of the month' with me, and once I find a new recipe I play it on repeat, like a Britney song, until I can bear it no more.
Right now, it's "Pumpkin Curry & Roast Carrot Hummus Month". My old faithful (roasted red pepper) hummus has been overshadowed by a new, sweeter kid in town.Read More
These balls are one of my favourite things to make as a snack! Well, to be honest anything that tastes like Nutella gets my vote. And these are DELISH...not to mention SO easy to make and involves ZERO actually cooking.Read More
...ok bear with me if you saw the word 'cacao' and internally shuddered imagining chocolate mixed with black bean tacos.
These tacos are SO delicious and contain a small amount of cacao that increases the richness of this dish. What you might not know is that many Mexican dishes actually contain dark chocolate and cacao as a base ingredient! I tested this recipe over the weekend and it got my boyfriend's stamp of approval too...Read More
As someone who has sweet potato wedges with practically every meal, a generous dollop (ahem, more like entire tub) of hummus is a necessary accompaniment. Up until recently I actually hadn't made homemade hummus and it came as a surprise how easy it is to do, not to mention how much tastier it is than store bought versions! Here is my favourite roasted red pepper & paprika recipe...Read More
One of my favourite breakfasts is the super simple baked beans on toast. There is something very comforting and warming about it. Perhaps it is the memories of eating it as a child. Whatever it is, it is pure delicious. Lately I have started to make my own baked beans so that I can limit the sugar (always surprises me how much sugar is often added to the store bought varieties!) and also add some spice as I like my food with a bit of a kick!Read More
I fancied baking a sweet treat last night and decided on a new brownie recipe! I normally make sweet potato brownies as they’re my go-to healthy treat but wanted to shake things up a bit.
This recipe's key ingredient is.... *drum roll* ... CHICKPEAS!
Interestingly my friends have all loved these and preferred these ones over my sweet potato brownies! I think it is the fabulous tahini fudge icing :)Read More
Cooking is genuinely a form of meditation for me and nothing clears my head quite like it. There is something really calming about setting out all my ingredients and seeing a meal come together.
I am obsessed with peanut butter and love any satay dish or dessert with peanuts so decided to make a Potato and Peanut Curry on Sunday. This batch makes about 5 portions and tastes deliciously nourishing. Let me know what you think!Read More
The rainy weather on Saturday made me long for a comforting and warming dinner.
Growing up by the seaside I ate lots of fish pie and seafood before turning vegetarian at age 10. I decided to make a vegan 'fish' pie over the weekend and it turned out great, plus it's enough food to last me almost a full week!Read More
