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 […]

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 […]

Magnesium Boost Salad

If there’s one thing that has been giving me the fear about trying to get on board with a hormone friendly anti-inflammatory diet it is The Bland.  Although I’d say I’m a pretty established cook, I’m also a pretty predictable one on a day to day basis and I rely a lot on using chilli, […]

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 […]

Very Warm Chickpea Salad

Ah, summertime, when life is nought but Will Smith jams and over dressed lettuces. A pesto drizzled heap of rocket is all well and good but a girl (or a boy, crikey) cannot live on feathery greens alone. A girl/boy/fraggle doesn’t always want to cook loads in the hotter days either and this is when […]

Ultimate Pasta Sauce

I remember going to uni as a naive 18 year old and being utterly horrified by the general gravitation of my cohorts in academia towards jarred, mass produced and frankly horrible pasta sauce. I understood that they were cheap, and convenient, and easily stored at room temperature in the back of a cupboard where they […]
