Comforting seitan “beef” and barley stew

Leave a comment
main meal / seitan

Anyone else make big old batches of seitan and use it in every damn thing?!  I used to love me a peppery beef stew when I wasn’t vegan (I can’t believe I used to eat that stuff, ewwwww), so a substitute that’s earth-and-animal friendly was very much needed for when I moved over to the “green” side. This recipe is brilliant to make on the weekend and take to work for lunches during the week […]

Quinoa and sweet potato falafel

Leave a comment
main meal / quinoa

Confession time – I’ve never made a falafel myself at home that didn’t turn out terrible.  Not sure what it is exactly that I do to them but they seem to want to disintegrate whenever I deep fry them, and baking makes them taste too… healthy (you know [junk food] me).  But now folks, I have managed to make a falafel that didn’t fall apart and tasted boss.  BEHOLD. These quinoa and sweet potato falafel […]

Seitan steaks

main meal / seitan

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 the internet, and I’ve tried making plenty of them.  I prefer making this one as it’s one of the easiest and […]

Spicy tofu & brussels sprout fried rice

main meal / tofu

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 after trying this recipe it’s clear that they’re a lot more versatile than just being a side dish.  One cup of […]

BBQ pulled tempeh sloppy Joes

burgers / main meal / tempeh

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 no turning back. I remember the first time I tried tempeh… please don’t make my mistake and try it uncooked and […]

Tofush & chips (vegan “fish & chips”)

comments 3
main meal / tofu

It was a long time coming, but the day had finally arrived.  I would try my hand at making vegan fish & chips, aka Tofush and chips. Not sure why I had put this off for so long – fear of failure?  Thinking it might look crap?  Might taste disgusting?  It’s tofu, I mean, how much like fish can tofu taste?!  Turns out quite a lot, if you wrap it in a nori sheet. I’ve […]

Spicy buffalo cauliflower wings

Leave a comment
main meal / sides

Us vegans have all seen these buffalo cauliflower wings done a million times before, and the recipes are all pretty much the same… so why haven’t you tried making them yet?!  DO IT. I’m a huge fan of cauliflower and spicy foods in general, so these tick some serious boxes for me.  No need for boring steamed cauliflower with dinner when you can whip these babies up instead.  If you don’t like hot stuff then […]

Mexican corn and quinoa salad

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 like when they hear KEEN-WAH.  All they need to know is it’s tasty and yum and shut up and eat it. […]

Matcha-lime cheesecake (vegan/raw)

comments 2
cake / dessert

Probably the sexiest thing I have ever made to date… I recently bought a (very expensive) small packet of matcha on a whim and wasn’t sure what kind of recipe to incorporate it into.  There are so many options for adding matcha to sweet treats, so making a raw cheesecake seemed like a good option.  I’m a big fan of citrus fruits, and matcha kinda goes with lime (they’re both green, right?!) – and adding pineapple […]

Basic bitch banana & walnut bread

treats

I LOVE me a good banana bread.  There are so many things you can put in them (blueberries, chocolate chips, poppyseed etc.) and many and varied ways of making the bread itself.  Because you’re on this blog however, let me show you how to make yourself a basic bitch VEGAN banana bread. No weird ingredients, no faffing, just basic and hot damn tasty.  When I make this bread it rarely makes it out of the house, or […]
