Seitan steaks

So this is a recipe that I really HAVE to share with you all.  I make seitan once every couple weeks on the weekend, because it lasts ages, you can freeze it, it’s a brilliant source of protein and you can do so much with it. There are loads of seitan recipes knocking around theContinue reading “Seitan steaks”

Spicy tofu & brussels sprout fried rice

Here’s a combo that you might not think goes together, but it really does.  Brussels sprouts and fried rice?  Nah.  Oh, but YEAH. Many people aren’t keen on that stinky little vegetable, but I’m a huge fan of sprouts.  They’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, I’ve given Sloppy Joes the positivelyjen vegan once over.  I missed out on the “joy” of Sloppy Joes before becoming vegan, because I was never really a fan of mincemeat (no surprises really considering what’s in the stuff…).  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!  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.  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”

Sausage & black bean casserole (vegan)

It’s almost casserole season whoop whoop!  Living in London means it’s basically always casserole season though – do we even have a summer? 🙂 If you’re feeling like something hearty, warm and filling a casserole is always the answer.  They’re also awesome because you can have them with anything – mashed spuds, cauliflower rice, basic bitch rice,Continue reading “Sausage & black bean casserole (vegan)”

Get saucy – vegan lasagna sauce

  Lasagna is just such a classic meal.  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”

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)”

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”
