Roast Roots and Hummus

When I first made this it was the week before Christmas so it was something to do with leftover roast vegetables. Now were in summer (ok we’re in Scotland so I use that term loosely) I still love having this but with roast peppers, tomatoes and greens like kale or spinach. In this video I’ve…

Cupboard Clear Out Haggis 

After a bit of a hiatus I’m back to cleaning out my cupboards and getting things organised/used up.  I started making my own veggie haggis after Leo had a craving for it and for some reason we just couldn’t find it in the shops. We live in Scotland so it shouldn’t be that hard but…

Peanut Butter Brownies 

This was the very first recipe I shared online when I went vegan. It was when I was part of Vegan Newbs and still had a lot to learn about taking pictures (not that I’m done learning).  While this isn’t the exact recipe I still use today at work it’s still a great recipe to…

Brammibal’s Doughnuts 

While I was researching where to visit in Berlin I stumbled on Brammibals on Instagram. They are a 100% vegan doughnut shop/cafe so we had to see what all the fuss was about.  On our first visit we had a couple of doughnuts each as it’s so hard to pick just one. At the front we’ve…

June Round-Up

OK so before I begin June was more than a little stressful so let me add this little preamble before I get stuck into my intentions as I’ll just keep coming back to this. As I’ve mentioned previously we had a friend living with us for 3 months. Those 3 months were up the last…

All Purpose Cashew Sauce

I use this recipe all the time, its a great all purpose creamy sauce. I use it as a pasta sauce, ramen broth base, mushrooms on toast sauce, curry cooler, egg-less benedict sauce… the possibilities are endless! What would you use it for  

Vegan Pesto Trapanese

Last week I made vegan Parmesan so I could make this recipe. Pesto alla trapanese is the Sicilian variation on Pesto typically made with almonds, tomato and in some recipes anchovy. This is my veganised take on it. Instead of Parmesan we’ve got our home made version and instead of anchovy we’ve got nori.

Vegan Parmesan

I wanted to make a video for spaghetti pesto Trapanese but realised that the pesto needs ‘Parmesan’. Previously I’ve used a pre-made powder that I got in a swap box from America but now it’s all gone so what do I use instead? I could go but a block of Violife Parmesan but 1. It’s…

May Round-Up

At the beginning of 2017 I set some intentions for the year ahead so what’s happened with that throughout May? Intention 1 – Improve my physical health. My home yoga practice is still suffering as we’ve just not got the space at home but I’ve been outside a few times instead. The nice weather has…

Use up that gnocchi 

Lidl do pre made, ready to go gnocchi that’s vegan! Whoooo! Except I buy it and then it sits in the cupboard unused for months.  I originally bought it to have with red peppers and a paprika sauce but as usual I forgot about them. So to use them up this time we’ve had them…

Sprout your own 

When we were in Barcelona two years ago, all the salads we ate were topped with sprouts. They are rediculously expensive to buy but oh so easy to do yourself. It just takes pre planning and time.  I’m using the moong dal I’m clearing out to make my own. They are £1 a bag from…
