Smashed Chickpea and Pesto Baguette

Eating a good sandwich is like watching John Munch fight crime in early Law and Order: SVU episodes: pretty much as good as it gets. Although I find deep comfort in a simple avocado and Vegemite toastie, sometimes I just need a little more oomph. My smashed chickpea blend is filling, protein packed, meaty and god damn delicious. You can mix up your other fillings, but pesto makes for a lovely accompaniment. Planetbox.com sent me the lovely lunchbox in this picture, which came with the cutest magnets that can be personalised! Pictured is the Shuttle box, which is non-toxic and great for school lunches. Get packing!

Spiced Pumpkin Bread

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.

Easy Oat and Pumpkin Cookies

I’m going to keep this short and sweet, not unlike this recipe! You probably have most of these ingredients already at home, so it’s just a matter of combining them in a bowl, shaping them into cookies and throwing them into the oven. Even quicker is the time it’ll take to eat them.

Lite Choc Chip Biscotti

Biscotti is such a versatile snack, once you have a basic recipe you can mix and match a whole variety of flavours and fillers. More importantly, perhaps, you can make them days in advance and they still taste great. This version is low in sugar, but if you’d prefer a sweet recipe you can switch out the rice malt syrup for a desired about of sugar.

No-bake Mixed Berry Chocolate Slice

Baking a dessert is good, eating a dessert is better, but not having to bake AND being able to eat dessert, is definitely the best. My No-bake Mixed Berry Chocolate Slice is really easy to make and combines a chewy chocolate base with a creamy and light berry layer. It stores in the freezer and is made with a bunch of healthy, wholesome ingredients. And if you close your eyes and really focus, it’ll almost taste like a McDonald’s birthday cake, just healthier, more ethical, and handled by far fewer children.

Chicken Flavoured Noodle Soup

When I’m sick, all I really want to do is eat toast with peanut butter and wash it down with some chocolate milk. When I’m done feeling sorry for myself, I decide that I should probably have something that will actually help me get better. My Chicken Flavoured Noodle Soup is warming and wholesome and the perfect companion for a sick vegan, but it also makes a delicious healthy dinner. You can experiment with your own spices and vegetables, just make sure to use a killer vegan chicken stock.

No Bake Lime and Matcha Tart

Matcha is one of those ingredients that suddenly seems to be appearing in everything, and frankly, thrown into a cup of boiling water is not my idea of a sophisticated way to enjoy it. This recipe combines zesty lime, creamy cashews and hint of matcha tea blend to create a super healthy, light and tasty slice. It stores in the freezer so you can eat some now and save the rest for your hipster friends who are visiting next month. Matcha later!

Lemon and Roasted Peanut Basmati

I’m always looking for ways to up my rice game, mainly because I’m strange and think about grains a little too much. This dish is super easy and is packed with so many plant based goodies, all you have to do is throw in some crispy tofu and greens and you’re good to go. You can switch out the spices, currants and coconut for what you have in the pantry, or use a white basmati rice if you prefer.

Raw Chocolate, Caramel and Vanilla Cheesecake

The words ‘raw’ and ‘cake’ don’t naturally sound that great together, but I can assure you that this cake is both packed with superfoods, AND worthy of any after dinner dessert binge. Made with a crunchy chocolate base, a smooth, creamy filling, a rich caramel and a sweet chocolate glaze, this cake is a fabulous alternative to sugary, processed snacks, and stores in the freezer for months!

Superfood Seed Cookies

The only thing I value more than devouring Oreos and watching Survivor, is being able to smugly show people how healthy veganism can be. To that end, I have created my Superfood Seed Cookies, which are refined sugar free, dairy free, egg free and packed with so many amazing ingredients you’ll practically glow after just one bite. They aren’t very sweet so feel free to add more dried fruit if you swing that way, or substitute the spices and seeds for whatever you have in your pantry.
