Creamy vegan coleslaw

Another salad?  This is unheard of!  Coleslaw isn’t really a proper salad though, is it?  I mean, it doesn’t even have lettuce in it… If you’ve ever wanted to make a creamy yet cholesterol free vegan coleslaw then let me show you how.  Raw cabbage is really, really good for you, and this recipe hasContinue reading “Creamy vegan coleslaw”

Vegan cherry ripe

Is there such a thing as Cherry Ripe chocolate bars in the UK?  If there is, I haven’t found one yet.  And who cares anyway, because you can make them yourself! I used to demolish Cherry Ripe bars when I was living in Australia, and along with Bounty bars they were top of the pileContinue reading “Vegan cherry ripe”

Spicy vegan “chicken” nuggets

You’ve gotta love seitan – making meat dishes out of plant based products for decades 🙂  I had seen recipes for seitan “chicken” nuggets all over the interwebs for months, and sampled them in various vegan restaurants (they were delicious), so thought I’d give it a crack myself. These ones are spicy, moist on the inside and crunchy onContinue reading “Spicy vegan “chicken” nuggets”

Easy rainbow salad (vegan)

Yeah yeah yeah, vegans eat salad all day and all night, don’t they? Surely you can tell by now from this blog the above statement just isn’t true, because I love vegan junk.  Every once in a while though you need to get some greens into you.  And some purples.  And oranges.  And quinoa. ThisContinue reading “Easy rainbow salad (vegan)”

Raw chocolate orange bliss balls

I have now officially moved into the big time of small time cooking (!) – I bought a proper food processor.  Can you believe I’ve gone this long without one?  Crazy. Making foods like these raw chocolate orange balls had been difficult previously – ever tried to make falafel by hand?  Or cheesecake crust inContinue reading “Raw chocolate orange bliss balls”

Unicorn (beetroot) hummus

This one is for all my unicorn friends. The main ingredient in hummus, chickpeas, should be a staple in everyone’s diet, not only because they’re so versatile (as are their juices – see my aquafaba chocolate mousse recipe!), they’re healthy AF.  One of the best vegan sources of protein (19 grams of protein per 100 gramsContinue reading “Unicorn (beetroot) hummus”

Beetroot burger patties

Time time has come for me to stop relying on pre-made burgers and start making them myself… when I have time.  Seeing as I was recently off work for two weeks (one spent in Dubrovnik though) it was time to start. First up – beetroot burger patties.  So pink, so “raw beef”-like (ew ew ew), but soContinue reading “Beetroot burger patties”

Vegan in Dubrovnik, Croatia

If you’re vegan or vegetarian (or just want to know where to find decent restaurants/cafes in Dubrovnik) then welcome – this post is for you! I spent five days in a very beautiful, very sunny Dubrovnik in June and everything about the place was gorgeous – the food was no exception.  You will find thatContinue reading “Vegan in Dubrovnik, Croatia”

Balsamic tofu skewers

I love a good skewer, and I love Mediterranean veggies and tofu, so here we are. I used to make skewers by cutting up the ingredients, popping them on skewers, drizzling and grill.  Grilling however is a right royal pain.  Ain’t nobody got time to check and turn, check and turn, check and turn every five minutes. The solution?Continue reading “Balsamic tofu skewers”
