Vegan tartlets

I’ve been missing quiche and savoury tarts recently so I thought I’d play around with plant based recipes this weekend. Here’s the recipe for plant based tartlets – great for dinner, canapés for a party and of course I’m always thinking about the lunch box!     Ingredients: Broccoli Asparagus Mushrooms Cherry tomatoes Firm tofu…

Roasted romanesco

I’ve recently been seeing romanesco pop up on trendy food menus and have been eager to try cooking with it. I first tried it at Farmstand in Covent Garden where its available as a side veg on their seasonal menu. It’s similar to cauliflower and broccoli and tastes delicious! Its packed with vitamin A and…

Marrow Curry

I was given a huge marrow by a friend (interesting veggies clearly make the best presents for a foodie!) but I had no idea what to do with it. I love experimenting with new recipes and a good challenge so it was exciting to think of all the possibilities of what to make. Marrows belong…

Cacao, walnut and almond energy balls

These help fix my post lunch sweet craving (otherwise I’m reaching for biscuits or chocolate). They are a delicious sweet fix and a great energy booster. The main ingredients are nuts and dates so it’s all good for you! Energy balls have become very popular but are often expensive to regularly keep buying so why…

Cauli Mash

Winter seems to be here forever in London and I need warm, hearty dishes to get me through it! Cauliflower is such an underestimated veggie and I’m always surprised when people rarely incorporate it into their meals. Cauli mash is a delicious winter warmer side dish as well as a tasty carb free alternative to…

Jackfruit Taco Boats

Jackfruit has become pretty trendy recently, mainly as a meat substitute because of it’s texture. It’s usually used to resemble and replace shredded or pulled pork. The fruit can be found growing in Southeast Asia and is popular with veggies and vegans because of its nutritional value. Full of protein, B vitamins, C vitamins, magnesium……

Cavolo Nero Pesto And Red Lentil Pasta

Cavolo nero (aka black kale or black cabbage) is popular in Italian cuisine and an anti-oxidant rich food. Anything blended in pesto is wayyyy more enjoyable to eat than just boiled leaves so this meal is a good way to get those nutrients in! I didn’t know what this fancy leaf was when I first…

Overnight Oats – 3 ways

It’s world porridge day! Technically overnight oats are not warm like porridge, buttt I still wanted to show some appreciation for oats! I’ve been having overnight oats for brekie for months now and my love for them is still going strong. There are sooo many different combinations you can experiment with, it’s surprisingly difficult to…

Kale and Sweet Potato Falafel

Falafel is a delicious vegan dish for both light and larger meals. I regularly add falafel balls to salads for lunch or in wraps for a heartier meal. This recipe took a lot of experimenting, especially with consistency, but I’m finally there and I hope this works well for you too! Ingredients 1 tin of…

Summer Beetroot & Mint Dip

Writing this with the sniffles and vitamin D withdrawals whilst it’s currently raining in London (like most of the year), it feels wrong to call this a summer recipe. But F it, it’s August and technically the sun should be shining and my umbrella should be out of sight. I’m not letting the weather kill…
