Avocado Stuffed Lentil Balls with Sweet Potato Wedges & Homemade Hot Sauce

For the last 6 weeks I have had access to an awesome kitchen and do you know how many times I’ve actually “properly cooked” in it? Go on guess! The answer, to my eternal shame, is none! I had such great visions of all the things I was going to make, oh the cakes I would bake, the fine dining ideas I would play around with, but, alas, I have been drawn away from the kitchen and into the comfy seats of the cafes, bars and eateries of Edinburgh, a city that is booming with vegan food! It’s quite awesome. […]

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.

A great excuse to make this again. I’m going to be without the use of a kitchen while I’m […]

When I first started cooking I was a little reserved with the spices, maybe adding a […]

Chickpea & Coriander Patties served with spicy Spanish Rice, Chilli and Avocado Aioli and Sauteed Sweet Red Onions

I wonder if you can overeat chickpeas! I have been using them in quite a lot of my dishes lately, but they are just so easy to use it seems silly not to fling them in a dish when I can! I had in my head that these were going to be crispbakes, don’t ask me what I thought I meant by crispbakes, I think I’ve heard it someplace and thought it sounded good, but when I looked at my finished plate they were more burger-ish in style, so patties it is. I’ll keep the crispbake idea for something else, […]
