Vegetable tagine wit almond and chickpea couscous - an easy, healthy vegetarian/vegan meal with tonnes of flavour!

Various types of vegetable soups and stews feature heavily in my kitchen during the winter. This tagine is one of my favourites as it feels more rich and special than a regular stew and has a really wonderful sweet/spicy flavour. (more…)

This weekend I did something that I almost never do – I had the weekend off. No work, no social media, no thinking about the blog (well, that last one is a bit of a lie, it is pretty much impossible to stop thinking about it altogether). Instead we went out for dinner, went to a gig (Eluveitie, an awesome folk metal band, in case you were interested) and did some shopping. I even had time to get stuck in to Book Of Dust by Philip Pullman which I had been eagerly awaiting and am thoroughly enjoying thus far. (more…)

The weather the last couple of days has been utterly foul. Non-stop rain all day and the darkest, gloomiest skies. Comfort food is definitely in order and these vegetarian mushroom meatballs are just the thing. Spaghetti with tomato sauce, meatballs and plenty of cheese has to be one of the ultimate comfort foods and it is really easy to make an amazing tasting vegetarian (or even vegan) version of the classic.

Easy vegan lemon curd recipe - egg and dairy free lemon curd that is sweet, creamy, intensely lemony, totally addictive and ready in under ten minutes!

I first made this lemon curd some time ago now to fill my vegan lemon curd layer cake, but I felt like it deserved it’s own recipe post. Recently Damian has been trying to cut down on dairy as it isn’t very good for his stomach (a problem that a lot of people have I think), so I have been trying to join him. Seeing as I am already vegetarian (occasionally pescatarian), this has meant that I have been making a lot more vegan recipes so expect to see more of them on here! (more…)

Chocolate berry smoothie - a rich, chocolatey smoothie that feels like you are drinking dessert but is totally healthy!

I always feel like a bit of a cheat when I post a smoothie recipe because they are so simple that it almost feels wrong to even call it a recipe; I mean, the instructions are only one line long for goodness sake! Nevertheless, I having been making this chocolate berry smoothie a lot recently so thought that I would go ahead and share it as I like it so much. (more…)

The other day I shared my recipe for tangzhong burger buns and promised I would be sharing a burger recipe to go with them; well here it is – sun-dried tomato chickpea burgers. These are totally vegetarian/vegan burgers that are easy to make, delicious and very satisfying. I served the burgers alongside some amazing home-made beer battered onion rings which were utterly addictive and so much better than shop bought ones. (more…)

Roasted red pepper and chili hummus with home-made seasoned pitta chips. Easy to make and the perfect snack!

I adore hummus, and always have done. One of my favourite lunches is a pot of hummus with some crusty bread and vegetable sticks for dipping, I will happily eat the entire tub in one sitting. While I do often buy hummus (I’m lazy), it is so quick and easy to make your own and that way you can control the flavours to get the balance of lemon, garlic and olive oil that suits you. (more…)
