Chana & Lentil Masala with Homemade Spicy Garlic Flatbreads

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love spicy food! If there is one thing in my herb and spice cupboard that needs constantly restocked, it’s chilli flakes (along with cumin and chilli powder of course, so that’s 3 things!) I don’t think I could get by without those little treasures and now that I’ve started adding turmeric into a lot of my dishes that too will to go on the list so going to have to start buying in bulk! When I first started cooking I was a little reserved with the spices, maybe adding a […]

Deliciously Decadent Chocolate Date Brownie

I have, what I can only describe, as the mother of all bruises on my right leg. It’s just come up today and I assume it’s from Saturday’s exertions. I’m still a little stiff but thankfully managed to get through my yoga class this morning and I was showing off my battle scars to my gym buddies like a big kid! We’re off to see the family next week and I am very much looking forward to a little socialising and trying out some new restaurants in the London area. I might even treat myself to a little shopping at […]

Chilli Falafel with Paprika Sweet Potato Wedges and a Cherry Tomato Chutney

We did it, we completed our first Legion Run on Saturday in Larnaca and all my nervous rants are now a distant memory. It was an amazing day and we can’t wait to sign up for another. I took on obstacles that I thought were impossible for me, my excuse of not having strong arms went straight out the window as I hauled my backside over the cargo net wall, pulled myself up a steeply inclined wall. I will admit though that I chickened out of the very first vertical wall obstacle, it was the first one I came to, […]

Veggie & Apricot Tagine with a Fruity Herb Cous Cous

The countdown has well and truly begun, less than 6 days to go until Martin and I fling ourselves into the Legion Run! I’ve seen a few clips on facebook of the obstacles going up and it’s getting exciting, scary, but exciting, I’m trying to study them to see what kind of tips I can pick up for technique, although I do think it’s pretty much the case of flinging myself into it and hoping for the best! I’m planning to make sure we fuel ourselves even better this week so that we’re in tip top condition for next weekend, […]

Simple No Bake Goji Energy Bars, ideal for a post gym snack.

This is a super short and sweet recipe to give you a little something to nibble on if you get an afternoon snack attack. I literally flung in what I had in my cupboard and with the added bonus of the almond butter (which I am loving) that I bought at Holland and Barrett last week, I was no doubt onto a winner! Do not despair if you haven’t got all the same ingredients, you can easily use peanut butter, cashew nut butter or any nut butter really and swap the goji berries for some raisins or cranberries and if […]

Veggie Nut Roast, great for a Family Dinner or Sunday Lunch

I’ve been experimenting these past few weeks with Sunday dinners, they can be great for family get togethers if you happen to have invited non vegan guests over or even if you just fancy cooking something special for yourself, any leftovers can go in the fridge for bonus Monday meals. I keep thinking of what to make that would be a centre piece for the meal, as people tend to expect the veggies to be WITH something, so with this recipe I’ve gone for a nut roast and next time will be Pie as I’ve got a lot of puff […]
