Vegan Christmas Pudding

cake / dessert

A little while ago I was asked to take part in the John Lewis “Stir-up Sunday” Christmas pudding making event at Waitrose Cookery School, and boy was it ACE. Ok so basically I’d never heard of Stir-up Sunday before, but apparently it’s a thing.  A real thing where people gather together and make delicious Chrimbo puddings – whoop!  Read all about it here if you wanna, because the more you know… etc. The aim of […]

Berry baked oats

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 […]

Today’s little number is a cheesecake that’s actually quite good for you.  I know, right?!  And it’s raw.  RAW.  You […]

  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 […]

Pastry on EVERYTHING. When you discover vegan pastry (hi Jus Rol puff pastry!) you have to make everything you’ve ever made with pastry one more time, y’know, just to test whether or not it’s any good. So far, so yum. Apples and pastry go together brilliantly, and this recipe is so easy you have no excuse not to try it.  If you know of any vegan whipped cream recipes to go with it, holla at […]
