Vegan Niku Miso ビーガンにくみそ

I posted this picture yesterday of my Bento dinner at work, it contained a main dish of Niku Miso which is Japanese for Meat Miso. Obviously I’m not going for the meat part but there isn’t any reason why this couldn’t easily be made vegan. Back to work so back to bento おべんと Today it's…

Meal Prep for the Week ¦ £10 Lidl Haul

So now I’ve picked up all this food from Lidl, what the hell do I do with it? I’m not a meal planner or meal prepper so this is totally new for me. However. I want to make sure I’ve got enough food here for the week so need to get cooking so thing can…

Lemon Shortbread ¦ Quick, Easy and Vegan!

I wanted to send a thank you gift to someone so have been looking for something that is *Scottish *Vegan *Edible There aren’t many pre-bought things that scream Scotland let alone them being vegan so in the end I’ve resorted to making my own. Shortbread is really easy to make, the trick is keeping the…

Vegan Quiche ¦ With Broccoli and Bute Island Blue Sheese

Since visiting Paris I’ve had a hankering for quiche. I haven’t had one for a very long time so it was time to figure out a vegan version. I’m pretty proud of this one as it’s a nice combination of chickpea flour which sets pretty hard and silken tofu which is a bit too delicate…

Lemon Curd ¦ Sweet, Sour, Sharp and Vegan

Lemon curd is traditionally very egg and butter heavy but that doesn’t mean there can’t be a vegan version. Here I’ve taken five ingredients and made a super thick, sweet and face puckeringly sharp lemon curd that is vegan. This recipe makes quite a bit, so far we’ve eaten it on Leo’s home made croissants,…

Beetroot Soup

We’ve just had friends round for home made veggie haggis pierogi and I wanted something else to go with it. As it’s so cold out how about a soup? As I’m making Polish pierogi it only seems fitting to have a beetroot soup with it. It was a throw everything in a pan until it…

Vegan Tteokbokki ¦ Spicy, Sticky and Sweet Rice Cakes

For ages I saw these dried rice cakes in the Asian supermarket and had no idea what to do with them… then while watching ‘Let’s Eat’ on Netflix I saw a simple (but not vegan) recipe for them in a sticky spicy and sweet sauce. They looked incredible and I had to try them. Traditionally…

Dairy Free Pumpkin Spice Creamer

Happy Halloween!  We’re starting the day off with a cup of tea (for me) and a cup of coffee (for Leo) with some pumpkin spice creamer in it.  It took all of 30 seconds to make enough to keep us going all day.  Ingredients  1 Cup of Soy Milk 4tbsp Maple Syrup 1/2tsp Ginger Powder…

Sugar, Fat, Dairy and Egg Free Brownies

Yesterday I had a friend over for a vegan afternoon tea, in the interest of not being too over indulgent I made a few changes to my full fat full fun brownie recipe to make it refined sugar and fat free as well as dairy and egg free.

Vegan Oreo Brownies ¦ Fudgy, Gooey and Decadent

I currently work in a Gelato shop in Edinburgh, since starting there I’ve developed a vegan waffle batter recipe I’m very proud of as well as some vegan cakes which go down well. This… is one of those cakes. I often make them with crumbled up Oreo but you can really add in whatever you…
