LAZY PERSON’S GARLIC GUIDE

Garlic is one of the best, best ingredients out there! It adds insane flavour to pretty much everything BUT preparing it can be one hell of a fiddly, time-consuming process, and I find even with a garlic crusher it still seems an effort to me. So for all those foodies who ain’t got time to…

PRET SOARS TO NEW VEGAN HEIGHTS!

Okay – so I am already a huge fan of Pret A┬áManger (see here) and their commitment to providing a range of vegan options and generally their being a very ethical and sustainable company. However, they have now gone even further – they are basically so veggie/vegan friendly that they are having to remind meat-eaters…

VEGAN IN ANDALUCIA: Part 1

So I am currently in sunny Spain, the sun is beaming down, the birds are tweeting and I feel wonderfully relaxed. Spain is pretty hit and miss when it comes to vegans and you can often find yourself in the miss zone, if you don’t know where to go or what to ask for. So…

RECIPE: Vegan Mac-n-Cheese

This is the comfort food of the century! Filling, tasty, cheesy, warm, straight out of the oven – macaroni cheese is everything that you want from a lazy evening at home. In the past, my vegan macaroni cheeses have dried out in the oven and I’ve basically realised the trick is to make loads and…

RECIPE: Roast Sweet Potato Spring Salad

Here is a wonderful salad recipe for spring, you’ve still got a touch of warming root vegetables but you have the lightness of salad greens to get you in the mood for summer. This salad is so easy to throw together, looks really tasty and has plenty of protein and fibre…

RECIPE: SUMMER SHARING BOARD

I was feeling quite uninspired about my lunch and was wondering how I could make it more appetising, when I realised that all my favourite salad bowls were dirty. However this spawned inspiration as I suddenly thought, wouldn’t it be nice to make a sharing board for everyone at home instead. I am so pleased…

RECIPE: Vegan Victoria Sponge

Oh what a time to be alive! When one can make a Victoria Sponge with no dairy, no egg, no cruelty to animals and it actually tastes amazing!!! I’ve adapted this recipe from one I found from Tesco of all sources, and it is awesome. A wonderfully british cake – perfect for summer which is…

RECIPE: Homemade Vegan Cheese

I love cooking but I never thought I’d get to the stage where I could make my own cheese!! I got this from veganlife magazine but changed the nuts involved to cashews – my favourite for cheese. The great thing about being vegan – is that it is far easier to make vegan cheese than…

Review: Vegan Cheesly Toastie

Since becoming vegan, the one thing I didn’t realise I had been missing out on until today was cheese toasties. But thanks to some awesome vegan cheese, I can once again enjoy grilled cheese…

REVIEW: Vegan Quorn Burgers!

So Quorn launched a vegan line at the beginning of this year! I know, amazing! Currently they only have two things, but I’m hoping they will expand over time because Quorn is such a great protein sauce, super tasty and crucially, it can be bought from normal supermarkets, so it makes veganism that bit easier….

REVIEW: Sunbites Crackers

The other day I was in Boots and I really wanted a mid-afternoon snack that was not merely crisps – then my gaze landed on these Sunbites crackers – what a vegan find!
