March Round-Up

At the beginning of 2017 I set some intentions for the year ahead but has it actually worked and what has happened? February was looking ok but what about March? Intention 1 – Improve my physical health. Yoga classes have sadly come to an end so it’s now entirely down to me to keep my…

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…

This week on Instagram

There have been a lot of treats this last week and I’ve well and truly stayed from my February Intentions BUT I recognise that and I’m making up for it in other ways and making sure I get back on track. First of all I was reminiscing about visiting Vegan Nomad Chick in Dundee and…

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…

Vegan burger dilemma 

So this week I’ve been out for a burger twice which is a rarity for me. The first was after yoga on Monday. It’s turned into a routine that we try something new every week and it’s a good excuse to get my yoga teacher Kirsty to try vegan food and to show her how…

Semit aka sesame bread rings

Semit aka Sesame bread rings This year I want to take the time to make as much of my food from scratch myself rather than buying it from the shop. This week’s bread is Semit. It’s a bit like a bagel but less chewy, less work and just as tasty. Ingredients – 500g of plain…

Throwback Thursday

In Kyoto we stumbled on a tiny tiny miso shop called Miso Pota who sold… you guessed it – Miso Pots. This is miso with a difference though. Here was their Halloween soup which contained pumpkin and sweet potato. I had with with soy sauce rice crackers and a salad I made in our wee…

Sauerkraut

All you need is a cabbage and 2-3 tbsp of salt. Simply chop up your cabbage and discard any thick stalks. Rub in the salt and press under a weighted plate for an hour. You’ll see water starting to come out of the cabbage which is exactly what you want. Tightly pack the cabbage into…
