Confessions of a Vegan Mum!!!

Where does the time go?!?!?! As I sit here and write this, I think to myself that it has been almost two months since I wanted to write this, but just haven’t found the time. Things have gotten so busy these last few weeks, with the kids now settled into their new school and nursery,…

Kiddie Friendly Sweetcorn Fingers…

Or quenelles…. stars…. any shape really that means your kids will be interested in trying them… because that is often the hardest part! These were really easy to make, maybe because I had company in the kitchen helping me out, and tasted great. We ate ours on a day out with lots of bits and…

Veggie Pad Thai (Nut free, Vegan and Gluten Free)

Now I know this is not the traditional Pad Thai recipe, but what I liked most about making this recipe was that it was easy to make, it tasted great and I just loved how beautiful all the colours were in my bowl. I don’t normally make Thai foods as they generally include peanuts which…

Courgette and Spinach salad

We had our first BBQ for the season and with family visiting I enjoyed making lots of different veggie dishes for the meal. Besides this salad which tasted amazing, we also had some roasted sweetcorn, hassleback new potatoes, roasted cauliflower, a huge salad and then some veggie sausages, burgers and some store bought cauliflower steak…….

Kale, Squash, Lentil salad

We have had some amazing weather this weekend, the sun was out and that meant it was salad time!!!! I’ve bought this salad before, and made it at home a few times, but tried a slightly different twist to it this weekend and it was a success. A success for me is not only having…

Fully-loaded Mexican Burrito Bowl (vegan and gluten-free)

Not sure about you, but I have always found there is something wonderful about seeing a perfectly laid out bowl of food, and that’s what I tried to do with this “naked” burrito dish. Don’t get me wrong, I love the traditional burrito wrapped up in paper/foil that you unwrap as you bite down into…

Orange Polenta Cake (Gluten free and Vegan)

I am always looking to find new cake recipes that are both gluten free and vegan. I have tried this recipe a few times and it keeps getting better with each bake. I love its bright yellow colour and really enjoy eating it with some dairy free yogurt, to add a little extra to each…

Mushroom & Bean Chilli

Hello!!!!! Welcome back to my blog… sorry I have been away for so long, it feels like forever since I have posted anything! We’ve just moved home… well when I say “just” it has been four weeks already. In between all the packing and preparing to move, and then the actual move, and unpacking… there…

Quorn “Shepherds” Pie

Note to self, I really need to up my game with food photography! Everywhere always says to use natural light when taking photos… the thing is I mainly do my cooking at night so that is not always possible. Oh well! So this week is British Pie Week, did you know that? Apparently “British Pie…

Banana Bread (vegan and gluten free)

What do you do when you have overripe bananas? Bake banana bread of course. It is such a great smell when you bake banana bread… the mixture of banana and cinnamon is wonderful. Normally this would not take too long, but I was baking in between us trying to fix a burst water pipe and…
