Kimchi Tofu with Noodles

So, you may have noticed my slight kimchi obsession – I always make sure to have a batch on the go (and can start to feel panicked when it’s running low!) Check out the recipe I use here! But if you haven’t got a jar of your own kimchi fermenting away, there are plenty of ready made vegan…

Banana Choc Chip Pancakes with Coco-Peanut Sauce

Since my move to Vietnam (with all its fabulous food), I still occasionally crave some of the more familiar comfort foods, mainly chocolate and peanut butter! They are both available ingredients here, although weather conditions in Vietnam can make chocolate quite difficult to work with because it instantly melts on any skin contact! However, getting…

Vietnamese Style Vegan Kimchi

I have a slight obsession with kimchi nowadays (OK, it’s a full-on love affair), but the idea of eating fermented cabbage didn’t always hold the same appeal! It was during my vegan diploma at Demuths Cookery School that I changed my mind; it was one of the first things that we made on the course and…

Socca Pizza with Harissa Jackfruit

I have been sitting on this recipe for a while now. With it’s vibrant red colours and light crispy base, it is the perfect dish for these summery days. So now its time has come to be freed from my recipe bank, please enjoy! The base is made from a mix of gram flour and…

You’ll find their growing site in deepest Chingford from which they supply their lovely produce to several restaurants – as well as running a veg box scheme within London. What amazes…

They are amazingly simple, but super tasty – a great little easter surprise! If you, like me,…

‘Beef’ Stroganoff – Fry’s Beef Strips

Another firm favourite meal of mine before I went vegan was beef stroganoff. I created this plant-powered alternative after posting my Cashew Base recipe. I went searching for an alternative to beef strips (usually I’d just rely on mushrooms) and found that Fry’s are now selling these on Ocado. YAY! So I put the strips…

Ackee Fried Rice with Pulled Hoisin Mushroom

Who else sometimes craves past guilt-ridden and meat-filled Chinese takeaways? I definitely do. I’m talking about piles of fried rice with sticky sweet sauces, piled high with crispy pieces of unidentifiable meat. Who knows what you were really eating? My mushroom and ackee alternatives should satisfy your cravings and definitely won’t leave you feeling as…

Breakfast Chia Pudding

Every blogger has a favourite recipe for their chia pudding – so here is mine! Whilst it is named chia pudding, I never actually eat this as a pudding. It is more of a breakfast dish for me. You can have this as a pudding if you wish – it could easily be snazzed up with…
