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…

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…

Sweet Potato Bean Chilli with Cornbread

I have really enjoyed this morning. Got the kids to nursery/ school in the snow, made it back home and then decided what I was making and had a morning of cooking… all in the warmth of my kitchen while it lightly snowed outside. This morning I felt I wanted something warming so looked at…

Vegan Trinidadian Sunday lunch… but its not Sunday!

Today is definitely a day for staying indoors and writing… the only thing is that I want to eat this meal all over again!!! Now the question is, does a Sunday lunch have to be cooked and eaten ONLY on a Sunday?!?! I was looking online for something to make and came across a picture…

Leek, Mushroom and Potato pie

Oh my where has the time gone. Last week was half term holiday so I got nothing done, and now it is already Thursday and it seems I have also done nothing this week… but I really have! I have been doing lots of cooking, and trialing new recipes, so I’ve got a few dishes…

Vegan Basil Pesto with Edamame Spaghetti

Pesto and pasta is one of the quickest dinners to knock together, and is always an enjoyable meal. However it is not always an available option to use a store bought bottle of pesto if you are vegan or nut free. However saying nut free is something I questioned before writing it. Hubby has a…
