Vegan Banana Bread

It’s fair to say that in the first lockdown, banana bread became a thing. In fact, I’m not sure I know anyone who didn’t at least have a go at making it! Now I’m not a massive fan of bananas – unless they are in shakes or cake! So today’s recipe is a vegan banana […]

Well now’s the chance to enjoy the last of the winter vegetables as the season (and the weather!) is starting to change. Right now […]

3 Ways With Sprouts!

Ahhh the marmite of vegetables. I personally LOVE brussel sprouts. And let’s face it, what’s not to love – these high in nutrients (they contain vitamins A, C and K, magnesium, fiber and phosphorus), low in calorie (around 28 calories in half a cup), mini cabbage look-a-likes really do pack a healthy punch. Whether you […]

Carrot Fritters with Poached Eggs

These carrot fritters are simply AMAZING! and as it’s National Vegetarian Week it would be rude not to share this carrot fritter recipe with you. For a great main meal serve with two poached eggs and salad, but if you want something lighter then serve with a nice salad and a Greek yoghurt dip. They […]

Spinach And Ricotta Aubergine Cannelloni

Quite a number of years ago I was suffering quite badly with my stomach when I went out for run (that’s all I’m saying about that) and I was advised by a nutritionist to minimise wheat in my diet. It set me on the quest to find alternatives to pasta and this is when I […]

Healthy Egg Fried Rice Recipe

I love this healthy egg fried rice recipe at the moment. It’s super quick and easy to make and is often a go to dish of mine if I’m tight on time and want some healthy and satisfying. My toddler also loves this too, as I’m normally cooking it for the whole family including him, […]

Buddha Bowl Recipe

I love Buddha Bowls, they are nutritious, easy to make (essentially I just look at what I’ve got in the fridge and cupboards and create my Buddha Bowls from there) and I love the vibrant colours on the plate once you have ‘built’ your Buddha Bowl. I also think my OCD likes how each element […]

Carrot Soup and Flat Breads

This cooking from my cupboard is getting more adventurous! The other week I wrote a blog about using nutritional yeast and now this! The truth is, soups are easy – and a great way to use veg that maybe isn’t 100% at it’s best (I left the carrots in a warm utility room). The thing […]

Healthy Fruit And Nut Bar Recipe

I made these bars for the first time this week, admittedly they were taken from a weaning book for my son, but hey who cares…they’re pretty tasty and really simple to make. I got my son involved in making these with me but if you want a tidier kitchen at the end maybe stick to […]

Cooking From Your Cupboards – Nutritional Yeast

Nutritional Yeast? Unless you’re vegetarian or vegan, you have probably never come across this before. Well I have a big unopened vat of the stuff in my cupboard and vowed to find something to do with it when my husband threatened to put it on our porridge! Urgh. I’ve never used it before. The stuff […]

Lentil Curry

Yes yes, we have definitely blogged about lentil curry before – but that was when we could get fresh spinach from the shop or we had nice ingredients such as coconut milk at home! There’s going to be a large amount of making-it-up-as-we-go as it’s a little difficult to get all your desired ingredients at […]

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. […]
