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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Tofu “eggs” benedict

comment 1
breakfast / tofu

I think I’ve probably only ever had two or three eggs benedict meals ever before going vegan.  There was always the worry that when you order eggs at a café or restaurant they’re going to be too snotty and gross (EW), and that had forever put me off ordering them.  Plus being vegan, it’s now something that just isn’t on the wish list where brunch is concerned. Have no fear – tofu is here. It […]

Easy vegan rocky road

dessert / treats

In my quest to veganise every single type of chocolate treat I have ever had in my life, the time has come to give the rocky road a once over.  I like a basic rocky road – nothing fancy, not too many ingredients, and easy to make.  If that sounds like you then you need to make this rocky road.  NOW. After creating this batch I realised that I had made a grave mistake with […]

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 […]

Sausage & black bean casserole (vegan)

Leave a comment
main meal

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, on top of nachos, with chips etc. The beauty of casseroles is that you can chuck any old thing in […]

Vegan chocolate honeycomb

treats

Another flashback to my youth in the land down under – Violet Crumble anyone?  Crunchie perhaps?  Gone are the days spending pocket money on a king sized Crunchie chocolate bar for morning tea (or sometimes for breakfast, alongside a packet of Twisties… how am I not dead?!), so now I have to make something similar from scratch to curb the cravings. Making honeycomb is SO much fun, but it contains SO much sugar.  This is […]

Get saucy – vegan lasagna sauce

comments 2
main meal / 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.  Plus you only need to substitute for some soy mince or lentils, or just make it all from veggies.  Most […]

Apricot danish

dessert / treats

Pastry is life.  Every time I buy a roll of Jus Rol pastry it goes within the day.  Not raw mind you (I’m not that silly… although it does taste nice raw too), but made into anything and everything – savoury, sweet, big, small, as long as it’s tasty. I used to buy danish pastries a LOT when I first started working.  It didn’t help that I worked in a cafe that had an abundant […]
