Carrot Cake Inspired Microwave Oats

There’s something about carrot cake that really makes my heart sing. Okay, okay, a little OTT I know, but there’s no denying that a moist, delicately spiced and nutty carrot cake┬áis one of the most satisfying things.┬áGiven my love for the combination of flavours typically associated with this cake, I thought I would have a…

Spicy Pea Stuffed Sweet Potato

Tangy Lemon and Ginger Salad

Ginger isn’t one of my most preferred spices on its own, but I do love how it is so versatile and perfectly compliments other flavours. My Mum has always been a huge fan of it, so recently I have been experimenting with the spice in salads and supper dishes like curries. Fresh ginger is most…

Spiced Carrot and Raisin Cookies

Meat- free Pasanda

One of my favourite dishes pre- vegan was chicken pasanda… I loved the sweet fruit ┬áswimming in a mild and creamy sauce, accompanied by piping hot basmati rice. I’m someone who likes to try new things and not opt for the same dish each time I eat out; however, pasanda was something I enjoyed so…

Speedy and Spicy Veggie Stir- fry

I usually have my main meal at supper time and something lighter at lunch, but a few weeks ago, on a wet and dreary Sunday, I was craving something warm and comforting to cheer me up. There were a few bits and bobs in my fridge which needed to be finished, so I pondered for…

Cumin and Toasted Kale Buddha Bowl

I know what you’re probably thinking… ‘What the heck is a Buddha bowl?’ You won’t be alone, trust me. In fact, unless you’re vegan, it is unlikely that you would have come across one before.
