Snacking Ideas

I love to snack. I like crunchy things. Sweet things are great too but I have found that I crave crunchy, savoury snacks more. This shall be a quick post without photos as I don't have any.

Breakfast and lunch wraps

I spent all morning yesterday making wraps for my breakfasts and lunches because I like have my food quick to hand in the day. This inclination tends to shove me toward the fast food and ready meal sector. This is not a helpful situation so I decided to take the problem to hand. I am… Continue reading Breakfast and lunch wraps

Country potatoes

Emily loves potatoes. She would live on potatoes alone if I let her....just mashed potatoes! Country potatoes are more of a cross between mashed potato and chips in my opinion. Em plans to put her potatoes in a wrap with sausagemeat, eggs and salsa as breakfast burritos like w had back in the US. Alan… Continue reading Country potatoes

Snacks

Roasted chickpeas

Snacks have been a frustration for us at times. I really love crunchy snacks and this has been a struggle. Popcorn is an option but plain is boring. Veggies and hummus is nice but doesn’t quite hit that chruchy snack craving for me. Roasted chickpeas have been a great option. You can do a slew… Continue reading Roasted chickpeas

Asparagus Risotto

Quick and simple meal. This can be used with just about any vegetables in place of the asparagus if you are either not a fan or just don't have it to hand. I love a mushroom risotto and this can be substituted if you desire. Risotto really is a simple meal to make. Only took… Continue reading Asparagus Risotto

Chick’n Noodle Soup

Before going plant based this was a family favourite with chicken...in fact it is Emily's favourite meal. I have a bit of a twist on the traditional recipe though as I use paprika for flavour. Originally, this was a Chicken Brunswick Stew I found in a cookbook but I didn't like this bit and added… Continue reading Chick’n Noodle Soup

Dhal

Indian food is so rich and full of flavour. I am sure I don't do it justice but I still have a whirl with the easier stuff. This is one of those easier recipes. It is a great starter recipe to build your confidence. The lentils are great for protein and fibre. The tomatoes, onion,… Continue reading Dhal

Oreo Birthday Cake

This is NOT a healthy recipe! It is to die for though and it is plant based and there is no oil; however, the amount of sugar pretty much negates any health. So, why was this cake made? The hint is in the title...Emily’s 20th birthday. This is in fact her recipe and she made… Continue reading Oreo Birthday Cake

Bread

Tortillas

I love tortillas. I love most flatbreads I guess. I might, I dare say, have a bit of a bread issue in fact. I have provided you with a naan recipe before and I have a plethora of bread recipes yet to come. I have experimenting yet to do. But today it is a quick… Continue reading Tortillas

Sauces

Cheezy Sauces

Everyone and their dog have a faux cheese sauce these days. I am no different. I have tried one other and found it thin and bland. I modified it but still didn’t have the flavour I like. I have watched a few YouTube videos with various different takes on cheeze sauce and found some inspiration.… Continue reading Cheezy Sauces
