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…

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  

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…

Spicy Sweet Potato Salad 

My first way to use up some grains is in a salad.  I’ve simmered 2tbsp each of pearl barley, spelt and rye in plain water then covered and left it to steam until tender.  To go with it I’ve boiled some sweet potato, carrot, red pepper and tomato in stock with a teaspoon of my…

Vegan Mayonnaise

This is one of the first video’s I made. Pre-vegan I was a huge mayonnaise fan, now there are some great alternatives out there but they are all over priced, don’t taste quite right and are filled with some weird ingredients. Here is one you can make at home with 5 ingredients. This can be…

A Year of Vegan You Tube

My You Tube channel is now a whole year old! It doesn’t feel like its been that long but 59 videos later here we are. I’ve met some amazing people along the way and got to collaborate with friends – I’ve also got to share recipes that are the foundation of my cooking. Why buy…

Quick and Simple Vegan Pancakes

Pancake day may have come and gone but there is still plenty of excuses to whip up these super quick and easy pancakes for a weekend breakfast. When I first went vegan, pancakes seemed like too much of a hassle. Oh how wrong I was, they are super quick and simple and we’ve been eating…

Persepolis inspired tofu scramble

Everytime we travel I get inspired by all the tasty food we have. Last month we went to London with our friends Aaron and Mitch so we took them to our favourite restauraunt in Peckham – Persepolis aka Snackistan. Everything there is either vegetarian or vegan and it’s all so flavourful. Here is my tofu…

My mini pantry 

It’s been nearly 6 weeks since we left home and were still not back. The only thing I’ve been unable to live without during all this is my kitchen and my well stocked pantry.  I couldn’t bring my kitchen with me and it soon become apparent that I needed something to make us feel more…

Chicken Mole Veganized!

I saw this recipe on Facebook, it was an advert for gousto that just wouldn’t leave me alone. A simple chicken mole made with green and blacks chocolate bit looked lovely… Why did it have to contain chicken!  The answer was to veganize it. The only parts of the recipe we couldn’t have were the…

My Essential Kitchen Tools

While we’re not living at home I have the perfect opportunity to clear out our kitchen and take stock of what we have, what we need and what has been sitting there for years unused. Using someone else’s kitchen has also highlighted what tools are essential for me as I don’t necessarily have access to…
