A Year On From Demuths Vegan Diploma

In February 2017, I attended the two week Vegan Diploma at Demuths Cookery School in Bath and I feel that this anniversary calls for a review! With it being a year on, I can now look back and consider how this diploma affected me and helped me get to where I am today. I want…

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…

Vegan Crêpes for the Perfect Pancake Day!

Who else gets stupidly excited for pancake day? It’s almost as though you can only eat pancakes one day a year. Don’t worry, I won’t judge you if you do decide to eat these crêpes every day! Since turning vegan, I never thought I would be able to eat French-style pancakes ever again, because eggs…

The world is changing massively…

Vegan Dirty Brownies

There is absolutely nothing guilt-free about this brownie recipe, sorry (not sorry)! I am a firm believer in eating indulgent food, as long as you maintain a balanced diet. I’ve been working on this recipe for a long time. I wanted to create chewy brownies, but with soft, oozing centres. Brownies that don’t break your…

Carrot Lox

Thought your smoked salmon days were over? Fear not, the hardy carrot has proven itself a worthy contender! ‘Lox’ refers to the curing and smoking of a salmon fillet, which is usually piled on top of a cream cheese bagel. The salty smokiness pairs perfectly with the creaminess of the cheese. You’re right, this does…
