Easy, healthy banana chia seed pancakes

breakfast / treats

Anyone else go through loads of bananas?!  I buy a bunch a week and wait patiently until they’re spotty enough to do stuff with – banana bread, frozen for smoothies and nice cream, and of course – pancakes. You can make pancakes as “bad” or as “good” for you as you like.  These happen to be pretty good for you, consisting of bananas, chia seeds and oats, so I give you full permission to have […]

Tofu “eggs” benedict

breakfast / tofu

I think I’ve probably only ever had two or three eggs benedict meals ever before going vegan.  There was always the worry that when you order eggs at a café or restaurant they’re going to be too snotty and gross (EW), and that had forever put me off ordering them.  Plus being vegan, it’s now something that just isn’t on the wish list where brunch is concerned. Have no fear – tofu is here. It […]

Tofu Shakshuka

breakfast / tofu

Oh boy do I have an awesome recipe to share with you guys today.   I’ve always seen shakshuka online and out and about, and thought the dish itself looked awesome, but the whole egg idea… ughhhh, no thanks.  That’s where tofu is your best friend – reliable, versatile and tasty when cooked and spiced properly.  Cauldron organic original tofu works best in this recipe, and there is no need to squeeze out the excess […]

Berry baked oats

breakfast

It’s that time of year when smoothies for breakfast every day just won’t cut it anymore.  TOO COLD mate.  I get bored of porridge every day too, so here’s a little twist on porridge, using most of the same ingredients.  Sneaky. It’s a good idea to make this ahead of time if you’re wanting to eat it during the week and you’re not a homeworker/homemaker, as it takes a while in the oven.  Luckily you […]

Hash brown cakes

breakfast / Potato

Hands up who loves hash browns! *Raises both arms* I’m a sucker for anything potato based, so last weekend it was time to attempt some home made hash browns.  I think I did ok. This recipe was adapted from Minimalist Baker’s Crispy Hash Brown Haystacks (I’m always on their site – if you don’t already know of them then get involved!), which looked amazing so I thought I’d give it a go. Next time I won’t use […]

Vegan bacon

Vegan bacon Vegan bacon Vegan bacon VEGAN. BACON. Why it took me so long to try this recipe I have no idea.  I’ve tried it now, it works, and it’s delicious. Can’t say that it tastes exactly like bacon (that might be a bit strange) but the flavour does taste like a cross between crispy bacon and pork scratchings. I KNOW. I adapted this from Edgy Veg‘s recent recipe (check out the accompanying YouTube video – she’s hilarious), […]

Smoothie bowls

breakfast

  Summer is pretty much here (in the Northern Hemisphere in any case) so it’s time to use spotty bananas for smoothie bowls rather than banana bread. You know how easy it is to make smoothie bowls?  SUPER easy. The best thing about smoothie bowls is you can put in it whatever you want.  See a recipe you want to try but it has YUCKY spinach in it?  Don’t put it in.  See a recipe […]
