What I Eat in a Day – Friday at Work

I’ve been asked a few times what I eat in a day so here it is. If you follow my Instagram or Facebook pretty much everything I post can look intimidating for people starting out or people who don’t cook… at least that’s what I’ve been told anyway. This is to show that everything I…

Peach, Mango & Blueberry Cobbler

I’m back with new video’s and a new look. Do you like it? This first video was made to use up a load of fruit I had sitting in the fridge for far too long. Some over ripe peaches, a wrinkly mango and the last of some blueberries from the freezer. It turned out so…

Roasted Seeds. 

Speaking of butternut squash… did you know you can roast their seeds too? They are smaller and you get less but they are just as delicious. Smokey roast pumpkin seeds. Ingredients – Seeds from 1 pumpkin or 2 squash 1 tbsp of oil Chilli flakes to taste ½ tsp of liquid smoke 1 tbsp of…

Butternut Squash Hummus 

It’s butternut squash season again, while pumpkins are my favourite we won’t see them for a while yet however butternut squash can be used instead to tide me over. Pumpkin (or Butternut) Hummus Ingredients – 1 cup of cooked pumpkin or squash 1 ½ cups of cooked chickpeas ½ tps of salt 1 tsp garlic…

Cupboard Clear Out – Banana Blossoms 

Back in January we were out for dinner for our anniversary and the lady next to us turned round and handed us this  She had bought a deck of these cards with her son and was working her way through them. Would we like to play? Sure! It’s and excuse to try something new so…

Make Your Own Kimchi

I was a super picky eater as a kid, I would only eat the blandest of foods as that’s all that was given to me for the longest time. After finding vegetarianism and then veganism however my tastes have completely changed and now the more flavour the better. The last thing I came round to…

Tofu Dango

A few months back silken tofu was on offer in our local supermarket and we went a bit daft with how many we bought. Now they are coming up to their expiration date and I need to find a use for them beyond tofu scramble. Even further back we were in Japan and our favourite…

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…

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.
