Aubergine Pomegranate and Kale Salad [vegan]

Aubergine Pomegranate and Kale Salad [vegan]

Aubergine and Pomegranate are up there with my favourite ingredient combinations, and this salad pairs the two particularly well, even if I do say so myself!  When aubergine is roasted to perfection, it melts in your mouth, not cooked enough and we all know the […]

Carrot and Swede Soup with Smoky Pumpkin Seed Croutons [vegan]

I’ve got the February blues and I feel grumpy. I’m in desperate need of Spring, but it’s grey, cold and miserable, and the promise of warmer days seem still too distant for my liking. This carrot and swede soup definitely brings a little sunshine to […]

Tofu scramble with cavolo nero [vegan]

I’ve definitely become a breakfast convert. Don’t get me wrong, I never skipped it, I can’t miss meals….I mean, food, hello!! I just wasn’t ever that adventurous. Back in the day, I used to just eat very sugary cereal or a couple of slices of toast […]

Christmas Cranberry and Orange Loaf [vegan]

Is it me or is Christmas getting earlier each year? Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas, but just not in November. I’m about to contradict myself majorly because this loaf cake is PERFECT for Christmas, and technically we’re not quite in December territory yet…my bad! […]

Apple Cinnamon Scones [vegan]

Apple Cinnamon Scones [vegan]

I’ve out done myself! These Apple Cinnamon Scones are too good not to share. I’m a big fan of a scone….and yes, I say scone as in s-cone not s-con, that may make me a bit posh, but it’s how it’s said..alright?! I have mixed feelings about the […]

Spicy Pumpkin and Parsnip Soup [vegan]

Spicy Pumpkin and Parsnip Soup [vegan]

Yes, now I can make soups for lunches! In the summer I’m all about salads, but now I’m all about staying warm, and soup is what I’m craving on these chillier autumnal days. I’ve massively got into pumpkins and squashes over the last few years, especially […]
