I hope you don’t think this is too cheesy! Delectable, healthy vegan Mac and Ch*ese (VG, GF option, Oil-Free)

Mac & Cheese is a classic. One of the all time greats when it comes to yummy comfort food during the winter… or any season for that matter. You just can’t go wrong with it. My only problem with Mac & Cheese though, besides the obvious inclusion of animal products, is that it’s just so unhealthy. Yes of course there are times where we don’t … Continue reading I hope you don’t think this is too cheesy! Delectable, healthy vegan Mac and Ch*ese (VG, GF option, Oil-Free)

Quick And Easy Vegan Pad Thai With A Twist (VG, GF)

So it’s officially autumn peeps! We’ve had some lovely sunshine in the past few weeks but you can definitely tell that we’re well on our way to winter, with the days getting shorter and the duvet making its way back into the bedroom again (I have to admit I’m pretty chuffed about this one!). Am I ready for winter? Nope, definitely not. Not a Covid-19 … Continue reading Quick And Easy Vegan Pad Thai With A Twist (VG, GF)

That’s-a spicy ‘meat’-a ball! Super Spicy Spaghetti and Meatballs (VG, GF Option)

As with all things to title a recipe on our blog using a “The Mask” quote seems oddly poignant. Right at the end of the film *spoilers* he ingests a somewhat large time bomb, which promptly explodes, causing him to burp fire and shout: “That’s a spicy meat-a ball”. Now in my world (a dangerous, unforgiving and disturbing place) i.e. my brain, everything should have … Continue reading That’s-a spicy ‘meat’-a ball! Super Spicy Spaghetti and Meatballs (VG, GF Option)

No-Nonsense Vegan Parm (VG, GF, Oil-Free)

I guess it’s a blessing he’s reading them at all, so I’ll throw him a (vegan) bone here. This Parmesan-style cheesy topping can go on anything as a crust, in creamy sauces for pasta, basically anywhere you want a salty, cheesy hit. The method? Measure, blend, … Continue reading No-Nonsense Vegan Parm (VG, GF, Oil-Free)

Super Speedy ‘SOS’ Mixed Bean Chili (VG, GF, Oil-Free Option)

You know when you find yourself in that classic situation, when your sister and brother-in-law are getting a new kitchen put in, and they don’t have access to a cooker / stove / hob, so you offer to cook and drive them loads of food and then you remember at the last minute, feel terrible and want to make something really nice to make up … Continue reading Super Speedy ‘SOS’ Mixed Bean Chili (VG, GF, Oil-Free Option)

“Can we have pizza?”, “We have pizza at home!”: Red Onion, Mushroom and BBQ Jackfruit Pizza (VG, GF Option)

When you really think about it, pizza is just a real-time pie chart of how much pizza you have left. Pizza is without a doubt the ultimate food. When you say you’re having pizza, people are excited; even bad pizza is still good pizza and of course most importantly it inspired a great moment in TV history which is quoted (in our household) more than … Continue reading “Can we have pizza?”, “We have pizza at home!”: Red Onion, Mushroom and BBQ Jackfruit Pizza (VG, GF Option)

Here we go(bi)! Baked Aloo Gobi – Indian style spiced Potato and Cauliflower (VG, GF, Oil Free)

We’re on the downward slope folks. We’re past the peak of summer, the days are getting cooler (I mean, it’s still _pretty warm_ but that’s on me being English and never being happy with the temperature). The good news though is that we can start making warm, comfort dishes to carry us into the exciting winter months (and trust me, we have some great stuff … Continue reading Here we go(bi)! Baked Aloo Gobi – Indian style spiced Potato and Cauliflower (VG, GF, Oil Free)

Katsu-out-of-the-bag: Baked Tofu Katsu Curry (VG, GF Option, Oil Free)

I am obsessed with this recipe. In fact – beyond obsessed. Check my Instagram page and you will see at least half of the recent pictures dotted around are basically me making this recipe and then posting how proud I am of it. Like a baby, except less cute and waaaaaay fewer people like the photos of my curry. Ah it’s ok though. What does … Continue reading Katsu-out-of-the-bag: Baked Tofu Katsu Curry (VG, GF Option, Oil Free)
