Vegan in Rome, it’s much easier than you think!

It seems like all of a sudden, Rome is a Mecca for vegans. Not only do the supermarkets carry some fantastic vegan friendly ranges, but restaurants are catching on too with vegan specific menus that have a great selection, not just a garden salad like some places we will not mention! It doesn’t seem that long ago, only 3 or 4 years really, that we were resigned to having slices of pizza pomodoro for dinner while we were in Rome. Now there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, the pizza is delicious, but after about 10 slices during a break […]

Feeding Frenzy in Surfers Paradise – Food shopping and dining out.

We were told by lots of people that Australia would be expensive and that we would spend most of our budget on food/drink, but we’re a slightly different kind of traveller. We always stay in apartments with a kitchen so we hit the supermarkets like Coles or Woolworths and for the vast majority of the time, we eat in. Of course we love dressing up and going out, but spending a huge chunk of money every night on a restaurant dinner just isn’t my idea of a fun. Our apartment in Surfer’s Paradise was just a 10 minute walk to […]

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 […]

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 […]
