Vanilla Chocolate Cheesecake Topped with a Delicious Layer of Passion Fruit

I was so impressed with my previous attempt at a cheesecake that I did it all over again and mixed up the flavours and also the ingredients for the base and it just keeps getting tastier and tastier! I’m going to have to buy more packs of tofu when I’m out next week and already have this earmarked as a MUST MAKE dessert when I’m staying with my family this summer. The list is pretty much endless when it comes to cheesecakes, I’m giddy at the prospect of using some of the seasonal fruits in the UK over July and […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Falafel with a Spicy Roasted Cherry Tomato Marinara Sauce & Sweet Potato Wedges

A friend of mine mentioned that she’d tried some pumpkin falafel while she was in the UK last month and said that they were fabulous, so it inspired me to try it out. Unfortunately I can’t get my paws on pumpkin so I went for some butternut squash instead which I thought was a fair substitute. I made enough burgers for dinner and lunch the next day (falafel is just as tasty served cold with some salad and a dollop of tahini on top!) they tasted great! Only one more sleep now until we hit Italy! Martin has even suggested […]

Oyster Mushroom, Ginger & Sesame Stir Fry with a Hot Soy & Walnut Sauce

I have finally used up the rest of the Soba Noodles that I had left in my cupboard, I love the colour of these noodles and they cook in minutes which is perfect for a quick dinner if you want to eat healthy and still pack in as much flavour as possible. I almost made these like normal noodles until I thought to double check the instructions, I’d have left them on the cooker for about 10 minutes more which I can’t imagine would have turned out well, so remember to check the cooking instructions of your noodles and try […]

St Clements Orange & Lemon Cheesecake with a Dark Chocolate Amaretto Drizzle

I got around to using one of my packs of Silken Tofu the other day and what better way to use it than in a delicious cheesecake! I was originally just going to do a plain lemon cheesecake, but for some reason I got the tune of St Clements in my head (oranges and lemons are the bells of St Clements…) and suggestible as I am, I threw a cheeky orange in there as well, the zest gives it a lovely colour as well, which is always nice. This recipe will serve 4 quite nicely, but as you can see […]

Roasted Red Pepper & Wilted Spinach Tagliatelle served with a Creamy Garlic Mushroom Sauce.

I found a good use for my wholewheat tagliatelle in this incredibly flavoursome dish. I played around with some of the flavours in the sauce until I was happy with it as the last time I tried to use tahini/hummus in my pasta, the sauce to thick and I wasn’t sure of the best course of action to make it thinner, but this time it went perfectly. You can add a lot of other ingredients into this dish like sun dried tomatoes, black olives, other roasted vegetables etc, just have a look and see what’s on offer at the supermarket/fruit […]

Crumbly Almond Biscotti

I have weened myself down to 1 sometimes 2 cups of coffee a day and really would love to have a cheeky biscotti with every cup, but that would just be silliness… or would it, it feels like the right thing to do..!!! I haven’t had biscotti in a long time, I used to have them with my skinny latte back in the day, I can now have my soy latte but alas, no biscotti, so it’s up to me to make my own… wonder if I could sneak them in and eat them if I’m out at a coffee […]
