Mushroom Filling

I know this isn’t the most delicious sounding title but I was at a bit of a lose to describe this recipe. I have used it to fill a pot pie as well as mixing it with pasta. It is versatile and moreish. As I am planning to use it as a topping on a… Continue reading Mushroom Filling

Vegetable Barley Soup

When I checked the clearance produce section at Tesco I found a vegetable soup mix for 20p (12 cents US) as well as sliced spring greens 25p (14 cents US) so I decided to make some vegetable soup. I still had barley at home in addition to some red lentils, spices and stock cubes so… Continue reading Vegetable Barley Soup

Wonky Veg for the Win

I was in Morrison’s for my grocery shop last week. I had heard before they were doing boxes of wonky veg (the less pretty but perfect good veg that stores usually refuse to sell) but had not come across them before that day. I don’t usually shop at Morrison’s but they started selling vegan pasties… Continue reading Wonky Veg for the Win

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

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

Sweet potato and Spinach Curry

Curry is a great dish as you can pretty much put anything you like in there and have a spicy, rich meal. I made this curry for the sake of Sunday dinner but when I posted the picture on Instagram someone asked for the recipe. So I guess the recipe must be done which means… Continue reading Sweet potato and Spinach Curry

Hines Baked Beans

Yes, I did that play on words. I previously had this recipe on here but have updated it to a whole foods friendly option, tested it out again, and gotten the pictures I wanted to share so here we go again! I originally modified another recipe 9 years ago but as life evolves so has… Continue reading Hines Baked Beans

Sourdough Casserole (vegan)

I really enjoyed the Chicken Sourdough Casserole that I wrote about while still eating meat. The sourdough topping was very much not WFPB however so I had a go at fixing this. It was a success. Sourdough Casserole 800g sourdough starter 1 300g packet of silken tofu  2 Tablespoons Nutritional yeast 2 teaspoons baking powder… Continue reading Sourdough Casserole (vegan)
