WHAT- Plant based filthy fast food.WHERE- Central Colchester plus the usual delivery servicesHOW MUCH- £10-15 a head with drinks and dessertOVERALL- I’m moving out of this postcode before they bankrupt me.https://www.peninsulaveganfoods.com/hanks-colchester In the rare moments over the past few months I’ve been at my actual office in an actual town centre, I tend to wander […]Read More Hank’s Dirty- Colchester
Disclaimer: I am in no way prejudiced against any kind of cake and believe all baked goods deserve an equal opportunity to be served for breakfast. One is back in isolation again after app-detected contact with some infected party of the local township and frankly, this sucks. It’s boring and stressful at once and couldn’t […]Read More Breakfast Loaf Cake
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 […]Read More Baked Oatmeal- But Make It Sexy
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 […]Read More Here’s to a Flexi Twenty
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 […]Read More Double Choc Nut Banana Bread
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 […]Read More The Best Curry You Ever Did Blag
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 […]Read More Easy Lunchbox Traybake
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 […]Read More For Those About To Veganuary….
If there is one thing you need at your Christmas cheeseboard, my cucumber pickle is it, and there is still time to get a batch ready for the big day as although it constantly improves in the jar, it only really needs a week to mature. And once life goes on after the festive period, […]Read More Boomboom’s World Famous Cucumber Pickle.
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 […]Read More Smoky Cauli Soup
