Recipe – Vegan “Hunter’s Sandwich”

A good few years ago some friends invited us over for lunch and made this incredible "squashed" sandwich, filled with layers of meat and vegetables, and I've been thinking for a while that I should try to veganise it. It's traditionally called a Hunter's Sandwich because it was taken out by people on hunts but … Continue reading Recipe – Vegan “Hunter’s Sandwich”

Meal Planner – A Week Of Vegan Breakfasts For The Whole Family (That Even Non-Vegans Will Love)

Since having children, I've found that in order to stop everything spiralling into disarray, I have to be really disciplined with planning ahead, particularly when it comes to mealtimes. If I just bought a load of stuff from the supermarket willy-nilly I'd probably be stuck for ideas most days, and would also create a hell … Continue reading Meal Planner – A Week Of Vegan Breakfasts For The Whole Family (That Even Non-Vegans Will Love)

Recipe – Vegan Banana, Pear and Cinnamon Pinwheels

Ah, the pinwheel. A relatively new phenomenon in my life, but they seem to be a bit of a trend at the moment. Essentially they're just sheets of puff pastry, topped with whatever filling you fancy, rolled up and cut into slices - so the possibilities are endless! I've been making a lot of savoury … Continue reading Recipe – Vegan Banana, Pear and Cinnamon Pinwheels

Recipe – Vegan Chocolate and Banana Oat Muffins

I seem to be posting a lot of recipes at the moment that can double as breakfast and dessert, because who doesn't love something that goes as well with custard or ice cream as it does with your morning cereal? The great thing about a lot of my vegan recipes is that they're also refined … Continue reading Recipe – Vegan Chocolate and Banana Oat Muffins

Recipe – Vegan Vanilla and Strawberry Oaty Pancakes

We're big fans of pancakes in this house. My husband prefers them savoury but the rest of us like a fruity breakfast pancake (or my yummy chocolate pancakes for a proper treat). The best thing about pancakes is it's really easy to adapt them to make them different flavours, and, generally speaking, they're pretty healthy too. … Continue reading Recipe – Vegan Vanilla and Strawberry Oaty Pancakes

Recipe – Vegan Chickpea “Tuna”

I've been meaning to try chickpea tuna (or "chuna" as I'm told it's called) for ages now and have been deliberating over which recipe to try. There are so many online and lots of them are actually fairly complicated and need lots of ingredients. So I decided to make my own simplified version, and it … Continue reading Recipe – Vegan Chickpea “Tuna”

Recipe – Easy and Delicious Vegan Banana Bread

It's fairly rare in our house that bananas go uneaten long enough to be really really ripe, but if you can keep your family's hands off them, using up ripe bananas in this delicious gooey banana bread is the way to go. It also makes the house smell amazing AND it's healthy to boot! It's … Continue reading Recipe – Easy and Delicious Vegan Banana Bread

Recipe – Lentil and Hidden Veg Pasta Sauce

  Pasta - always a winner I posted a very rough outline of this recipe on my Instagram a few days ago and it was so popular I thought it'd be good to get the recipe up here too. It's a bit of an "anything goes" recipe so if you're like me and you like … Continue reading Recipe – Lentil and Hidden Veg Pasta Sauce

Recipe – Veggie Paella

  This paella is a lovely, warming meal that is always a bit more satisfying than a risotto bevause of the addition of the chickpeas and a good bit of spice! Serves 4 Ingredients 1 Tbsp oil  or non-dairy spread for cooking 1 onion - diced 1 clove garlic, crushed or finely chopped 400g paella … Continue reading Recipe – Veggie Paella

Recipe – Extra Special Vegan Chocolate Pancakes

One rainy Wednesday a few weeks ago I discovered that adding chocolate Oatly to my pancake batter instead of water or dairy-free milk makes for a super-tasty treat. These are so simple, really fluffy and don't require any unusual ingredients even though they're egg-free - perfect for pancake day (actually perfect for any day!). Who says … Continue reading Recipe – Extra Special Vegan Chocolate Pancakes
