Oh So Simple Strawberry Tart

I’ve had this little recipe waiting to be added for a few weeks now, but I’ve been working on a few house projects (updating my kitchen) and we also took ourselves off for a couple of days to Protaras for my birthday, which was fabulous. I was meeting up with family for the evening and taking in the delights of the Abba tribute band at the Love Boat pub (yes it really was called the Love Boat) and then suffered the next day from the effects of the local wine, ah well! We spent the day on Nissi Beach in […]

Veggie Quesadilla with Mango Salsa and Hummus

Oh my goodness, I think I have hit upon my all time favourite flatbread recipe!! I’d seen a post the other day on theveglife where they added chia seeds to their dough and I thought that sounded pretty tasty so I gave it a go. It’s divine, just delicious really and the flat breads are perfect for these quesadillas. I also made another batch last night, added some chilli flakes to the dough as well and served it with a lentil dahl, yummy! This takes no time at all either, it’s just getting everything prepared that takes longer, but the […]

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 […]

Chilli Crepes stuffed with Moroccan Chickpeas and Apricots topped with a Spicy Sauce

I thought I’d try something a bit different and I haven’t made savoury crepes before and this dish just seemed to come together very nicely. It’s a very simple recipe that’s also pretty cheap so is ideal for dinner parties or a tasty family meal. One small addition I would make next time is to mix some spinach through the chickpea blend to add a few more nutrients, unfortunately I left it off my shopping list and forgot all about it. A great excuse to make this again. I’m going to be without the use of a kitchen while I’m […]

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 […]
