Beetroot, Banana, Blueberry snack bars

The 3 Bs….. which are all great for you! I went through an odd few months after I first started being vegan, where all of a sudden I became ill soon after eating a banana.. it only happened three times but I got the picture. It was so strange so I hit the internet but…

Red Lentil Lasagne… kiddie version

Charlie had a friend over after school the other day and I was trying to think of what to make for two energetic 5 year olds… with the added issue of my youngest not eating these days. So I eventually decided on making individual portions of red lentil lasagne for them. My kids love cheese…

Lentil & Mushroom Ragu

Last week I met hubby for lunch and we went to Zizzi’s and I ordered their Vegan Lentil Ragu option with gluten free pasta. It was amazing and I thought to myself I need to try and recreate this, so I set out to find that perfect recipe. Luckily it did not take me long…

Slow Cooker Mushroom Quorn Bolognese

Like with most recipes I have tried, since changing my diet, I have had to make a lot of tweaks to covert them into vegan and gluten free recipes. This recipe was no different, but I am glad to say that it works… even the kids approve. I’ve always loved using our slow cooker… the…
