Crispy Ginger and Sesame Tofu

If you haven’t already guessed based on previous posts, I love tofu. It is a staple in my household. As a vegan it is a great source of protein. Of course there are lots of varieties of tofu out there; but you don’t need to buy pre-flavoured stuff if you can flavour it right. This […]

Quinoa For Breakfast

I know what you’re thinking. Why is Kate obsessed with breakfast? The last food blog I wrote was about oats, now quinoa. To be fair, I’d eat my oats recipe for pudding too, not just breakfast! The truth of the matter is that I’m struggling with food at the moment. My IBS is particularly bad. […]

Creamy Overnight Oats

Ok, I know what you’re thinking – I’m a little late to the party here. Ieuan posted a blog about overnight oats ages ago (and I’ve borrowed his picture here!). Emily is always blogging about how much she loves porridge. Joe uses oats as a pre-workout boost. And here I am, finally getting on board! […]

How Did A Vegan Cope in Japan?

You may remember a similar blog when I went to China. Going to Japan, I was determined I was going to have proper Japanese food. Bowls of Ramen noodles, endless amounts of gyozas, tofu coming out of my ears, katsu curry and sushi. Some people were skeptical. So how did a vegan cope in Japan? […]

Roasted Rhubarb

I came home from holiday and our rhubarb had exploded! The rain and warmer spring has definitely helped it grow! Every year I’m faced with a search for healthy rhubarb recipes such as these savoury recipes. I’d love to be creative and whip up something that would rival any Master Chef contestant – but unfortunately […]

Crispy Baked Tofu

I’ve been trying to recreate some Japanese dishes at home in advance of my holiday to Japan. I’m not concerned about being vegan in Japan – there’s bound to be loads of noodles and tofu, and I love both. Here’s a great recipe which shares my love of tofu. Unlike a lot of tofu dishes, […]

Tofu and Chickpea Curry

Good thick curry does not have to come from a takeaway! Likewise, it doesn’t have to have a tonne of oil added to it. Our blog is full of different curry recipes; we’ve had lentil curry, thai curry and coconut curry! Now we have a tofu and chickpea curry to add to your repertoire! Ingredients […]

Alex’s Breakfast Burritos

Personally I’ve always found breakfast to be the trickiest meal of the day. I’ve got limited time. I’m usually in a rush and I’m often up so early for work that my hand-eye co-ordination isn’t exactly at Masterchef levels. On top of all that, I’m looking to get a healthy, protein-rich meal in without just […]

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, […]

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 […]
