I’m going to be honest, this recipe was the result of cheap pumpkin being on sale, and my desire not to waste a single gram. It’s easy to make and freezes well, and makes for a lightly spiced, low sugar snack. If you’re feeling inspired, try substituting pumpkin for another vegetable that’s on sale.
Caramel slice is one of those disgracefully delicious, insanely addictive and deliriously sweet desserts that only psychopaths don’t enjoy. I recently came across a new soy based condensed milk, and knew (for better or worse), I had to create a vegan caramel slice. It turned out amazingly well, and now I’m faced with the great challenge of not eating a piece of breakfast every morning. I hope you love it, too.
I always have rice paper in my cupboard, for those days when I’m too lazy to properly cook, but hungry enough to demand more than tinned baked beans. This recipe won’t quite make your dinner menu, but makes a killer dessert that is fresh, reasonably healthy and that tastes great. Experiment with your own fillings or make in advance for your next dinner party!
Another excuse to eat chocolate and peanut butter on a daily basis is here, and I am never letting it go. This recipe is packed full of protein rich nuts, rich cacao, creamy coconut and of course, peanut butter. It stores in the freezer and lasts for an age, and is a fabulous, ethical and healthier dessert option. Get munching!
Smokey, hearty and spicy, this is the recipe I grab when I’m hangry or craving meat. It’s made with healthy ingredients and lots of spices, but you can add more or less depending on your taste. You’ll never need meat again!
This is the fastest and easiest way to reach your number one goal, which I assume, like mine, is stuffing your face with chocolate. I make these using rich dark chocolate, raw, crunchy almonds and chunky sea salt, and within 30 minutes my chocolate smeared face is plastered with a smile. Perfect for sudden guests or a romantic night for one.
As satisfying as a it may be to decorate a cake, sometimes you just want a dessert that’s quick, easy and light. My Peach and Tapioca Pudding takes around 25 minutes, requires a handful of ingredients and makes for a healthier after dinner snack. Enjoy making a recipe that’s short and sweet, not unlike my terribly cute Miniature Schnauzer.
I experienced my first Thanksgiving last year whilst in New York, and attended a lovely dinner where I made my way through mountains of delicious food. Fortunately for me, there were plenty of vegan options (many brought by me!), but I know a lot of dinners don’t have such a focus on providing cruelty free options. This year, I’ve decided to create my own vegan Thanksgiving recipes, that are tasty, easy to make, and packed with healthy and fresh ingredients. My Creamy Vegan Mac and Cheese is made using pumpkin, nutritional yeast and spicy paprika, and is a fantastic, healthy alternative for vegans and non vegans who like to eat. This year, let’s be thankful for the fact that Law and Order: SVU is still running, and that we have plenty of plant based treats to bake!
