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…

Coconut Barfi

Barfi was yet another favourite of mine pre vegan but is something I haven’t looked out for an alternative for until now. Barfi is an Indian sweet made predominantly from condensed milk and sugar so you can see why I’ve avoided it. This is my version that isn’t anywhere near as sweet but still gives…

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…

Hot Cross Bun Pudding

Easter is another ‘holiday’ we don’t really celebrate however when hot cross buns are heavily discounted in the supermarkets it would be foolish not to partake a little bit. While a toasted hot cross bun slathered in vegan spread is one of the (very) few things that I’ll eat that contain sultanas there are only…

One Pot Coconut Curry

While I love curry and would happily make it every day sometimes I want to be super lazy and just throw everything in a pot, ignore it for a bit and then have a delicious meal at the end of it. This is one of those meals. Here I’ve taken 400ml of coconut milk, 400ml…

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…

Maple Granola

So this is my first attempt at making granola. It got a bit more toasty than I’d like but its still super tasty! We’re going to be eating it on turmeric spiced porridge with baked bananas and more maple syrup. Yum! So what’s in this delicious mix? 150g of oats 30g of walnuts 20g of…

Blueberry Oat Smoothie

Following on from last week’s oat milk video here is how I’ve used both the oat milk and the left over oat solids to make a smoothie. It’s 250ml of oat milk, 1 tbsp of liquid sweetener, 1 banana, 2 tbsp of leftover oats and 1 cup of blueberries. Simple!

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…

Oat Milk

Super quick and easy for when you’ve run out of milk for your tea… well that’s what happened to me anyway… whoops. All you need it 1 part oats to 2 parts water. Blitz in your blender (or spice grinder like I have here for a small amount as I’m out of oats too) make…
