BBQ Jackfruit

So you have a can/jar of jackfruit in the cupboard and you have no idea what to do with it. I’m here to help ๐Ÿ™‚ What you don’t want to do with jackfruit is just eat it like it is – you have to spice and flavour that baby up, just like it’s a blockContinue reading “BBQ Jackfruit”

Spicy tofu & brussels sprout fried rice

Hereโ€™s a combo that you might not think goes together, but it really does.ย  Brussels sprouts and fried rice?ย  Nah.ย  Oh, but YEAH. Many people arenโ€™t keen on that stinky little vegetable, but Iโ€™m a huge fan of sprouts.ย  Theyโ€™re usually only found as part of a roast dinner (hidden under the gravy), but afterContinue reading “Spicy tofu & brussels sprout fried rice”

BBQ pulled tempeh sloppy Joes

In my quest to veganise anything and everything, Iโ€™ve given Sloppy Joes the positivelyjen vegan once over.ย  I missed out on the โ€œjoyโ€ of Sloppy Joes before becoming vegan, because I was never really a fan of mincemeat (no surprises really considering whatโ€™s in the stuff…).ย  Now that tempeh is on the scene there’s noContinue reading “BBQ pulled tempeh sloppy Joes”

Mexican corn and quinoa salad

Alright guys – it’s nearly not salad weather anymore, woop! ย Not that I hate salad or anything, I just prefer my food cooked (I’d be a terrible raw til 4 participant). THIS salad however, is a winner. ย Don’t tell your non-vegan friends it has quinoa in it though, because you know what they get likeContinue reading “Mexican corn and quinoa salad”

Get saucy – vegan lasagna sauce

  Lasagna is just such a classic meal. ย I used to cook it all the time before going vegan, but was never sure how to transfer it over using plant based ingredients. I should never have worried – the amount of plant based milks and cheeses around means lasagna will never go off the menu.Continue reading “Get saucy – vegan lasagna sauce”

Beetroot burger patties

Timeย time has come for me to stop relying on pre-made burgers and start making them myself… when I have time. ย Seeing as I was recentlyย off work for two weeks (one spent in Dubrovnik though) it was time to start. First up – beetroot burger patties. ย 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. Iย used to make skewers byย cutting up theย ingredients, popping themย on skewers, drizzling and grill. ย Grilling however is a right royal pain. ย 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?! ย Actually, I never really liked it that much when I was younger, it always tasted really fatty and made me feel a bit bilious. ย 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! ย I didn’t know it was a thing until I spent a week in Dubrovnik recently and tried some myself. ย Oh boy, it was GOOD. Orzotto is basically a risotto made with pearl barley instead of rice. ย 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. ย The tastiest part of the mealย was the pistachio crusted tofu, andย considering the ingredients list it didn’t take tooย long to prepare. With the tofu, pistachio and tahini combo,ย this recipe will ensure you’re well on your way to hitting your daily protein,Continue reading “Pistachio crusted tofu”
