Flavour pairings is a fascinating subject – working out what ingredients go together, whether complementary or contrasting; and what should be served with what for the best possible combination and taste experience.

For me, once they have got black spots they are just too ripe to eat as they are. They are excellent for baking with however; and an excess of blackened bananas is the perfect excuse to make this vegan banana cake with chocolate peanut butter frosting. (more…)

Mushroom lentil burgers – savoury, umami flavoured vegan veggie burgers made with mushrooms, puy lentils and walnuts. Packed with veggies and protein these burgers make a delicious healthier option that will satisfy even the meat eaters. Post sponsored by Stokes Sauces.
One of my pet hates is going out to eat and the only vegetarian/vegan burger option on the menu being a portobello mushroom “burger”; as in, a grilled mushroom in some bread. That my friends, is NOT a burger; that is a disappointing sandwich. More and more restaurants seem to be partaking in this annoying trend, and quite frankly, it needs to die. (more…)
