Gourmet Veggie Burgers with Hot Sauce and Fries

Right away I’m going to tell you that I had other plans for these burgers, they were supposed to be stuffed with (drum roll please…) avocado. Just a nice slice of avocado stuffed into the centre before baking. But, and this is due to my lack of planning, there was not a ripe avocado in sight! So I’ll try it next time, but if you do fancy adding it into this recipe then you go for it! Please also note that these are soft burgers, so be gentle with them. I know there are a lot of people who are […]

Veggie Kasha with Sauteed Chilli Garlic Potato Slices and Paprika Hummus

I know I just posted the Kasha Buddha Bowl the other day, but really, you can’t have too many recipes that use this delicious ingredient. It’ still a novelty in this house as we’ve only just recently discovered it, but we’re still enjoying it, so I’ll be using it quite a bit over the next couple of weeks as I discover what other recipes it can be used in! This particular recipe though is super easy and I had some leftover baby potatoes that I wanted to use up so they were a nice little addition that I don’t normally […]

Chilli and Garlic Sauteed Veggies with Spinach Basmati Rice topped with a Cumin spiced Tahini Sauce

ZUMBA! Yes, I have returned to Zumba classes at the gym, there is a new instructor who is very good and I’m definitely feeling energized after the class which is fabulous. I still look ridiculous when attempting some of the moves, but hey, I’m getting to that age where I just don’t care anymore, I’m having fun! If you haven’t tried Zumba, I highly recommend it, not only is it good exercise but it’s great for uplifting your mood and making you smile and there’s some fab music in there too, what’s not to love! Now, following on from the […]

Kasha Buddha Bowl topped with Avocado & Mango served with a Soy & Wasabi Dressing

I’ve stocked up on my Kasha (toasted buckwheat groats), unbelievably tasty and unbelievably easy to make, it should be a staple in everyone’s kitchen for a healthy and delicious meal option as it’s a great source of protein and fibre! It’s also ideal if you eat a gluten free diet as it’s not actually a grain or a cereal and is actually a fruit seed. That’s right, no WHEAT, no GLUTEN! I’ve used this Kasha as a substitute for bulgur wheat and quinoa, I’ve used it in burgers and I’m going to have to try it out as a porridge […]

Crumbly Praline Cookies

So, first things first. Sweetness levels of cookies. For all the cakes and cookies I bake, I make them to suit our own tastes and these last 2 years have seen our palettes change dramatically as we’ve moved away from processed foods and maintained our plant based eating habits. What we’ve come to realise is we now don’t like super sweet snacks and desserts and this is coming from a woman who would devour sticky toffee puddings and packs of Thorntons champagne truffles in one sitting. I used to have a ridiculous sweet tooth. But things change, our cravings for […]

Vegetable Thai Red Curry with Spinach, Udon Noodles and Toasted Cashews

What a hectic couple of weeks we have had and such a great time meeting up with friends and family. There have been birthday parties, quiz nights (of which we were the victors!) family gatherings, shopping, beautiful walks, and exploring places including London, Cambridge and Ely. I’m exhausted now and need a rest! Food wise, I think the highlight had to have been finding a falafel van in Cambridge which served the most delicious falafel, the wraps they had were gorgeous with hummus, harissa paste and mango chutney, my mouth is watering! Just when I thought it couldn’t get any […]
