Baked Oatmeal- But Make It Sexy

Everyone keeps banging on about baked oats at the moment. Like ooh they are so healthy and low GI and I say screw that, it’s still January and I want filth and substance on a cold Sunday morning. So I made baked oats around the crowd pleasing flavour combos already present in the kitchen- namely […]

Here’s to a Flexi Twenty

I’m too old for new years resolutions, what a load of guff. I’m not, however, falsely confident enough to say I’m 100% happy remaining forever the exact same lump of middling to average human being that will shuffle off to bed some time in the first hours of the new year. I need to up […]

Double Choc Nut Banana Bread

I’ve spent a bit of time this year trying to improve upon a number of free-from recipes that I came across when tasked with creating gluten, dairy and egg free cakes for a family wedding buffet. Those results were not something I’m desperately proud of, and I’m confident that rice flour is not going to […]

The Best Curry You Ever Did Blag

Sometimes you chuck a load of stuff in a pan based on some vague cookery experience and a recent education in matters of B vitamins and it just works out to be the best dinner you’ve cooked in weeks. And quite possibly the best vegan meal that ever came out of your kitchen. Maybe the […]

Easy Lunchbox Traybake

That’s it, Christmas is over, it’s back to work and back to accepting that Stilton and chocolate Santas for every meal is probably not a great idea (no, not even if they are dark chocolate Santas). It’s time to get your January plan on, people. This might mean going vegan, switching to meal replacement shakes […]

For Those About To Veganuary….

I salute you! I’m no vegan, but I do try to make more of my meals meat and dairy free than aren’t. It’s not because I particularly enjoy butterbeans. It’s actually for many reasons which I won’t bore you with now but suffice to say if I could get away with a bacon double cheeseburger […]

Smoky Cauli Soup

Since embarking on my new edible regime I’m doing pretty ok. I don’t miss meat that much and I can live with loads of pulses and most of the milk substitutes out there. I still have bad and bloaty days, but the good days are better than they were and my veg consumption is through […]

Spicy Spuds

Spicy Spuds were an aromatic, over fried chunk of late-night-bad-food heaven from that grey area of my life that covers the ages after childhood but well before being any kind of a grown up. It was the late 90s in a sunny Essex town, and it was about two in the morning after a Friday […]

Beety Bean Burgers

  I had a middle-satisfaction level harvest from the garden last week of some pretty ‘rainbow’ variety beetroot. They have done well to survive this year after late frosts, constant bird attack and the recent heatwave and were pleasingly tasty so it seemed appropriate to give them a proper send off rather than just chuck […]
