Creamy vegan coleslaw

Another salad?  This is unheard of!  Coleslaw isn’t really a proper salad though, is it?  I mean, it doesn’t even have lettuce in it… If you’ve ever wanted to make a creamy yet cholesterol free vegan coleslaw then let me show you how.  Raw cabbage is really, really good for you, and this recipe hasContinue reading “Creamy vegan coleslaw”

Vegan cherry ripe

Is there such a thing as Cherry Ripe chocolate bars in the UK?  If there is, I haven’t found one yet.  And who cares anyway, because you can make them yourself! I used to demolish Cherry Ripe bars when I was living in Australia, and along with Bounty bars they were top of the pileContinue reading “Vegan cherry ripe”

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”

Unicorn (beetroot) hummus

This one is for all my unicorn friends. The main ingredient in hummus, chickpeas, should be a staple in everyone’s diet, not only because they’re so versatile (as are their juices – see my aquafaba chocolate mousse recipe!), they’re healthy AF.  One of the best vegan sources of protein (19 grams of protein per 100 gramsContinue reading “Unicorn (beetroot) hummus”

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”

Hash brown cakes

Hands up who loves hash browns! *Raises both arms* I’m a sucker for anything potato based, so last weekend it was time to attempt some home made hash browns.  I think I did ok. This recipe was adapted from Minimalist Baker’s Crispy Hash Brown Haystacks (I’m always on their site – if you don’t already know ofContinue reading “Hash brown cakes”

Aquafaba chocolate mousse (vegan)

I’ve been eyeing off aquafaba (chickpea brine) mousse recipes on the internet for months now so decided to pull my finger out on the weekend and give it a try. Chickpea brine smells SO gross, so I was hugely skeptical at first as to whether you could make something out of the stuff that wouldContinue reading “Aquafaba chocolate mousse (vegan)”

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)”

Peanut butter cups (vegan)

You want easy and tasty?  You got it.  Not sure if I know of a recipe easier than this – two ingredients and easy assembly peanut butter cups. TWO ingredients guys.  Two. If you’re a fan of peanut butter and dark chocolate like I am, then you’ll love this.  Tastes like the real thing… ifContinue reading “Peanut butter cups (vegan)”
