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. […]

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 […]

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 […]
