Veganuary Back to Work: Day 4

Hello! Hope you have been enjoying the menus so far! Today’s menu looks like this: Coconut rice is a recent obsession of mine. It’s so ridiculously creamy and because of the savoury addition of lightly fried onions it is well-balanced and not too sweet. It really doesn’t need anything other than your favourite stir-fried vegetables with…

Veganuary Back to Work: Day 3

So breakfast today is fresh fruit which always tastes so nice in the morning! I’ve got a massive sweet tooth so I love this as an alternative to toast or cereal. I have very naughtily added Alpro chocolate soya milk because it is just f***ing delicious and that’s all there is to it. Tonight’s dinner…

Veganuary Back to Work: Day 2

Hello! I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s menu! Here is a reminder of today’s: Avocado toast has got to be my all-time favourite go-to breakfast. Just peel, chop and put the slices of avocado on warm (vegan)buttered toast, mash gently with a fork and season with a little salt and pepper. It’s magic! I have been…

Veganuary: Back to Work Day 1!

So if you read yesterday’s post you will have hopefully prepped and enjoyed a good vegan breakfast and lunch! Now to dinner – Yasai Chilli Men. I’m a massive fan of Wagamama’s so this is totally pinched from their old menu! It’s spicy but you can adjust to your own tastes! The photo below is…

Veganuary: Kick Off!

Happy New Year! If you are trying Veganuary this year, or just wanting to eat a more plant-based diet, you might be dreading the back-to-work-what-the-hell-do-I-eat-now dilemma! You’ve come to the right place! There was a little story circulating recently that on average vegans spend, like, hundreds of pounds more on their food each month. That,…

Super Quick Vegan Curried Chickpeas

If you’ve been as obsessed as I have with the wonderment that is aquafaba (the water from canned beans) then it is entirely possible that you have been stockpiling chickpeas. Not just me is it? Regardless, if you want a very quick and nutritious spicy dinner, this is for you! I served this with some plain…

Vegan Peanut Butter Cups

These are super-ridiculously easy to make! It’s worth investing in those mini silicone cupcake cases which, incidentally, would be rubbish for cupcakes but GREAT for chocolate!  Mine are about 5cm across at the widest point and were just perfect for this recipe. One great thing about this recipe is that it’s so cheap to make…

Vegan Lemon Drizzle Cake

I’ve got a real thing for all things lemony and it’s just so good in cake! This recipe really reminds me of the ‘Mr Kipling’ individually wrapped lemon slices that I used to love as a kid. But better. And no nasties of course! Recipe: INGREDIENTS 1/3 cup sunflower oil 3/4 cup sugar 1 tsp…

Vegan French Strawberry Tart

Vegan creme patissiere – nailed it! A fairly innocent-looking strawberry tart lining the shelves of many a French patisserie is annoyingly filled with an egg yolk-based creme patissiere and I had never given much thought to veganising this but when my dad requested a fruit tart for a dessert at his birthday party at the…

Gluten Free Vegan Oaty Bean and Lentil Sausage Rolls

Sometimes I get ridiculous orders from my wheat-avoiding other half for veganised gluten-defying favourites. He’s a total sucker for spicy ‘(fake) meaty’ sausage rolls. I, on the other hand, have never been a massive fan of sosmix or meaty-textured foods. It’s not that I don’t like them now and again; I can just take or…

Bubbly Vegan Chocolate Orange Mousse Recipe

Good grief this is something I never thought I’d have: Vegan Chocolate Orange Mousse – for actual reals! As a kid I’d look longingly at gelatine-laden chocolate mousse just wishing that I could have a nice vegetarian version! The light bubbly-textured chocolate looked so good aside from the obviously horrendous, stomach churning bone-derived ingredients! As I…
