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”

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”

Potato salad (vegan)

Who doesn’t love potato salad?!  Actually, I never really liked it that much when I was younger, it always tasted really fatty and made me feel a bit bilious.  Non-vegan potato salad (with bacon) IS really fatty and gross, so it’s no surprise I felt that way. So here comes a less-fatty and gross potatoContinue reading “Potato salad (vegan)”

Roasted Courgette Orzotto

  Orzotto is a thing!  I didn’t know it was a thing until I spent a week in Dubrovnik recently and tried some myself.  Oh boy, it was GOOD. Orzotto is basically a risotto made with pearl barley instead of rice.  The food in Dubrovnik has quite a heavy Italian influence (think pizza, pasta, grilledContinue reading “Roasted Courgette Orzotto”

Pistachio crusted tofu

Spent a good hour in the kitchen the other night whipping up a vegan storm.  The tastiest part of the meal was the pistachio crusted tofu, and considering the ingredients list it didn’t take too long to prepare. With the tofu, pistachio and tahini combo, this recipe will ensure you’re well on your way to hitting your daily protein,Continue reading “Pistachio crusted tofu”

Get saucy – mac ‘n cheese sauce (vegan)

Yeah, I’d go vegan, but I’d miss my cheese too much… GET IN THE BIN! There are plenty of non-dairy vegan cheeses to be found in the big wide world right now, and if you can’t be bothered trying them all then I’m here to give you a recipe for at least one of them.  MacContinue reading “Get saucy – mac ‘n cheese sauce (vegan)”

Giant couscous stuffed peppers with basil

I had been looking around for giant couscous recipes for ages, but hadn’t found many that appealed.  Most of the recipes were salads, and I’m not a huge fan of salad to be honest (WHAT? A vegan who doesn’t like salad?  Burn the witch!!). First endeavour into giant couscous and not only was it a success, it’s now going toContinue reading “Giant couscous stuffed peppers with basil”

Get saucy – Big Mac “special sauce” (vegan)

In the first instalment of an ongoing saucy series, I’m going to share with you how to make a Big Mac “special sauce”.  There’s nothing special about the ingredients, but there IS something special about the taste.  It tastes like the real thing. Can’t say I was ever a huge fan of Big Macs (IContinue reading “Get saucy – Big Mac “special sauce” (vegan)”
