Welcome back, friends. I hope everyone had a fantastic festive break and your New Year is treating you with kindness. I have had my head down working on my cookbook and trying to balance my family. So far, I have managed to not completely alienate my daughter so, so far so good. Other than recipe…
Filled with all the flavours of Christmas, this Simply Festive Stuffed Squash is a completely delicious but lighter twist on the Christmas Roast. Slow roasted butternut squash rounds filled with a lightly spiced chestnut, quinoa and lentil stuffing scattered with dried cherries, this Christmas main is vegan, gluten-free and so wonderful.
This recipe began as a hunch. It grew in to an idea before working its way in to a full blown culinary MOMENT. My Soy-Free Silken Chocolate Pie shouldn’t work and it certainly shouldn’t be a mind-blowing spoonful of silken chocolate goodness. But it is. This recipe is why I cook.
Soy is a contentious character. Alongside gluten-free, sugar-free, nut-free and child-friendly recipes, soy-free recipes round out my most requested top 5 list. While soy products make for easy vegan cooking, so much debate surrounding GMO foods has led many away from the soy path. Fermented soy such as tempeh, tamari and miso are good; regular…
Gooey, rich, chocolatey and wonderfully wicked, these vegan Tahini Caramel Black Bean Brownies have revolutionised my brownie game. Besides being completely drool-worthy, these gorgeous squares are nut-free, gluten-free and packed with protein. I am going to make a big call; I think these are my best brownies yet.
Kitchen fails often end up in the compost bin but sometimes a fail is a win in disguise. This Accidentally Awesome Beetroot Butter didn’t begin its journey as a vegan butter, it was a seeded hummus, but the kitchen gods had other ideas. With a roasted pumpkin seed base, sweet earthy beetroot and light…
With creamy mashed potato, mixed vegetables and spices, these Sneaky Mashed Potato Cheese Waffles are crispy, cheesy and just a little bit moorish. A perfect breakfast or snack, these little gluten-free rounds are sure to be a hit with both big and little people.
With raw cacao, a mixture of nuts and seeds, coconut and cherries, this Dark Chocolate Cherry Buckwheat Granola is the perfect excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast. But who am I kidding? I don’t need an excuse.
Not only are these Easy Homemade Bounty Bars as good as the original, they are healthier with no added processed sugar and only six ingredients. As a little treat and a school holiday project for the Elf and I to share, these bars are a delicious no-brainer.
In contrast to the grey skies outside, this Cheesy Jalapeño Broccoli Soup is a vibrant and warming mix of spicy broccoli soup with a cheesy cashew cream. Topped with fresh coriander, a splash of lime and crunchy corn chips, this bowl is all things nourishing and good.
