Vegan Irish Soda Bread

Ahh a taste of my childhood. I used to eat this toasted and smothered in butter before setting off for school. I didn’t realise how much I appreciated the stuff til I moved to England and couldn’t find it in the shops. Cry. Traditionally, Irish breads are made with buttermilk, and require no time to…

Vegan Creamy Baked Asparagus

Gimme da greens!! In celebration of the Spring Equinox yesterday, I give you creamy baked asparagus, because nothing says springtime like these gorgeous little green spears. If someone says they don’t like they don’t like vegetables, first, tell them to grow up, and second, give them this. Usually, I love to flash-fry asparagus in a…

Nutty Chocolate Granola

If you’ve never made your own granola, you probably should. It’s one of those staple things, like bread, that’s just too easy to buy, and you might not have ever thought about making it yourself. With a cupboard full of oats, I thought I might as well give it a go. I’m not the biggest…

Vegan Cinnamon Sugar Doughnuts

HOLY HOLE IN A DOUGHNUT!! Seriously though, these are the holy grail of deep-fried confectionary, if you think such a thing could exist. You know those doughnut stalls that give you a bag of five for a stupidly low price? The ones that tase ridiculously good? Well these are THAT. This was my first time…

Red Pepper Chickpea Pancakes (High Protein)

Ahh Pancake Tuesday. The day of feasting before the fast. To give you a little bit of background, if you’re not already aware, Shrove Tuesday is the day preceding Ash Wednesday – the beginning of Lent. Lent, of course, in the Christian religion, is a time of fasting and giving up one’s glutenous vices for…

Zingy Vegan Lemon Cake with Candied Lemon Slices

Nothing works quite as well as an afternoon pick-me-up on a rainy day as a slice of lemon cake. It’s not dense like a chocolate cake, and not as sickly sweet as a traditional vanilla cupcake – a perfect in-between. I love working with citrus fruits in bakes. The citric zing they gift to sweets…

Vegan Hoisin Duck Pizza with Chilli and Caramelised Onions

If you’ve never tried your hand at making pizza dough from scratch – you should. It’s quick, easy, and means you have total creative license to dress it exactly how you’re feeling. So what’s not to like? I like to play around with different ingredients every time I make pizza dough, as I normally end…

Cheat’s Ramen

There’s something about ramen that’s just so wholesomely satisfying to eat, especially on a gloomy day. I’ve tried to make the broth the traditional way in the past, but always found it too technically demanding. So here’s a much simpler version for you that can be whipped up in under half an hour. I hope…

Red Onion and Sage Focaccia

Focaccia is one of my all-time favourite breads. The vast array of flavours that can be incorporated mean you can end up with entirely different tasting results each time, so it’s unlikely you’ll ever tire of making it.  It’s also pretty simple to make as long as you stick to the recipe. And this one doesn’t…
