Thai Prawn Stir Fry

When I think about making a protein-rich meal to have after my workout or for tea, my mind usually wanders to the popular sources such as chicken and beef. In my quest to write my food blog I decided to try something different. This is something that I haven’t really cooked with before. Here’s my […]

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 […]

A New Take On Stuffed Peppers

I went vegetarian when I was 16 and vegan when I was 18. It wasn’t easy back then! Restaurants would literally serve mushroom risotto or stuffed peppers. So now, I really won’t eat them. To my horror, Mindful Chef sent me a recipe this week which is simple a new take on stuffed peppers. At […]

Thai Green Curry

Did you know that the difference between a Thai Green Curry and a Thai Red Curry is simply down to the chilli used? Green curry contains green chilli and red contains – well, you get it. I know right – every day is a school day! I also can’t claim the picture as my own, […]

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 […]

Homemade Egg Fried Rice

If you are like me and love the taste of Chinese food, then January can be a tough month to resist that urge to grab the takeaway menu; especially when you’re trying to get rid of the winter belly. Instead of caving I decided to attempt my own Chinese dish to try and recreate those […]

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 […]

Sausage Casserole

This sausage casserole is dead simple to make and delicious. Technically not really a casserole as I don’t cook it in the oven or a casserole dish but I guess you could if you wanted. So maybe a preferred term would be hotpot or ragout. I am a big fan of one-pot meals, keep life […]
