All About Beans

This week’s blog comes to you courtesy of a member’s suggestion (thank you, Lee). It’s all about beans. I took the time to investigate our favourite beans and compared their nutritional contents.  Beans are a great source of protein, especially for non-meat eaters. They also have high fibre levels, B-vitamins as well as other nutrients essential […]

Sri Lankan Jackfruit

I’m not sure whether I should call this Sri Lankan Jackfruit or a Curried Jackfruit to be honest. I’ve never had proper Sri Lankan food but I’ve used a Sri Lankan spice mix so I’m going with that! I’m still experimenting with Jackfruit, and the truth be told, I haven’t moved on much since my […]

Chorizo Style Beans

I’ve never actually had chorizo. I turned veggie before it became “a thing”. I’m also not a big “fake meat” fan; it’s generally processed and tastes like plastic. However, having it once every so often is a great way of getting some protein in my diet. There’s been a whole new vegan range from Iceland […]

Yellow Split Pea Dahl

Finally did some actual cooking in the van this weekend. I don’t think scrambled eggs or fried tofu counts as actual cooking, which is what I mostly make. Or no-cook dishes like my go-to kale and lentil salad to take with me when I’m out and about. I love lentils if you hadn’t guessed already and […]

Kale and Kidney Bean Hot Pot

We’ve had stew and casserole, now it’s the time for hot pots! Ok, so I know what you’re thinking, a hot pot should have a sliced potato topping. There’s already no mention of potato.  Truth be told, this is supposed to have a layer of sliced parsnips – but I can’t stand them! I guess […]
