Tofu Rice Paper Rolls with Peanut Sauce

  • 01 h Prep. Time
  • 12 Serves

Rice paper rolls are one of my go-to meals when I want something healthy, fresh and light, but at the same time filling and extra tasty. They take a little time and patience to create, but make a fantastic meal for dinner or lunch and are a hit at parties and events. You can use any fillings you have on hand and be as creative as you like, too! 

This recipe includes a peanut dipping sauce which can be made in advance, and used in tonnes of other recipes or used as a sauce for your favourite vegan protein. Yum!

  • 01 h 35 ' Prep. Time
  • 20 Serves

Crunchy, tangy and full of protein, my Miso and Brown Rice Balls are the perfect freezer snack that can be added to almost any veggie base. Most of the ingredients will probably already be in your pantry, and once you buy a packet of miso paste you’ll find yourself using it in everything from salad dressings to stir-fries. Don’t be afraid to throw in your own combination of spices, too!

Vegan Opera Cake

Vegan Opera Cake

Vegan Opera Cake

  • 03 h Prep. Time
  • 12 Serves

I love coming up with decadent, extravagant and indulgent desserts, especially when the results are so fabulous! My Vegan Opera Cake combines a fluffy sponge, a creamy buttercream, a rich coffee syrup and a smooth chocolate ganache. It takes time, concentration and effort, but the results are well worth it. It's looks beautiful as the feature of a high tea, morning tea or party platter, and can be made in advance and frozen until needed. It's a rich and complex cake that will hit all the right spots. 

*Try not to confuse the layers. Your opera cake should be made up of (from top to bottom): croustillant, sponge, coffee syrup, buttercream, sponge, coffee syrup and ganache.

Herb Stuffed Pumpkin

Herb Stuffed Pumpkin

  • 30 ' Prep. Time
  • 2 Serves
Pumpkin is a versatile vegetable for a vegan, providing a creamy base for dairy free cheese sauce, a hearty addition to pump up a grain salad, or as the main ingredient in a party pleasing main. This recipe is a lovely one for a dinner party, and can be made as outlined below, or in mini-portions to please a crowd. You can stuff it with anything you like, top with vegan cheese or be bold by making it with sweet potato instead!

Lentil Shepherd's Pies

Lentil Shepherd's Pies

  • 4 Serves
Whether you're hosting a dinner or just looking for a winter warmer, nothing is more hearty than a pie (or better, many pies!). My Lentil Shepherd's Pies are healthy, made with veggies and spices, free of cheese, dairy and meat, and taste fantastic. You can prepare the veggie mix in advance and even freeze it, making it an ideal dinner if you don't have a lot of time. You can experiment with the veggies you have in the fridge, and even top with sweet potato or pea mash if you'd prefer.

Apple Pastry Puffs

Apple Pastry Puffs

Apple Pastry Puffs

  • 04 h Prep. Time
  • 10 Serves
I love a good mini-pastry, for breakfast, dessert, as a snack, or for pretty much any meal quite frankly. This is a time consuming but easy recipe for a basic vegan puff pastry, with an apple filling that can be made without or without any added sugar. It's made with plenty of vegan butter and isn't so much a healthy treat, but if you avoid adding sugar to the filling it's a better option than many of the store-bought desserts. Feel free to experiment with fillings based on what you have handy!

A fresh, fast and fabulous option for lunch or dinner, my Mixed Vegetable and Black Bean Bowl is a healthy vegan's delight. It's packed with plant based protein, veggies and tangy flavours, and is a great choice for lunch or dinner, or even as a crowd pleasing option for a shared dinner. Be creative and use your own combination of vegetables, protein and spices. 

Crunchy Corn Fritters

Crunchy Corn Fritters

  • 10 ' Prep. Time
  • 4 Serves
Another day, another vegan breakfast! Corn fritters used to be my go-to order at breakfast cafes, but it's tricky finding a place that does them without eggs, and many even have added cheese and sour cream to this crunchy delight. As regular readers know, I've recently committed to creating a vegan breakfast menu, with versions of my favourite non-vegan snacks that taste as good as the real thing (maybe even better, but let's not brag). Serve these with a tangy relish, vegan sour cream or heap of smashed avocado!

Super Soft Hot Cross Buns

Super Soft Hot Cross Buns

Super Soft Hot Cross Buns

  • 03 h Prep. Time
  • 12 Serves

I was speaking to a Ukrainian friend who asked what kind of food we enjoy in Australia during Easter. I thought about it and said, 'We don't really have any Easter specific food, except for maybe chocolate eggs.' Shameful! How could I forget about the magnificent hot cross bun! 

Store bought varieties of this soft and filling treat usually use dairy and eggs, and have loads of sugar added on top of the already sweet dried fruit. My Super Soft Hot Cross Buns are not only free of dairy and eggs, but are lower in sugar than your average bun. They take patience and a keen eye, but you'll be so satisfied when you smell your glorious warm buns in the oven (that sounds weird but I assure you I'm being genuine), and feel a fabulous sense of accomplishment. In my experience, any kind of bread or pastry making is really rewarding.

You can add extra dried fruit, mixed peel or whatever you have on hand, and more sugar if you like a sweet bun. They taste divine when warmed up, but can store in an airtight container for a couple days and freeze well. This recipe makes 12 big ones, but you can divide the mixture differently if you want them smaller - just heat them up when you're ready to eat, add a schmeeeeer of vegan butter go for gold.

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Walnut Mince

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Walnut Mince

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Walnut Mince

  • 15 ' Prep. Time
  • 4 Serves
Sweet potatoes are so versatile, perfect for fries, curries, salads and even brownies! This recipe is a healthy twist on stuffed potatoes, which are usually full of greasy meat, thick sour cream and cheese, and are very heavy. It's a great option if you enjoy hearty meals but don't want to fill up on breads and fried food, and is packed with protein and plenty of other good stuff. You can even make a big batch of mince and use it on sandwiches and pasta, too! 

Vegan Pain au Chocolat (Chocolate Croissants)

Vegan Pain au Chocolat (Chocolate Croissants)

  • 5 h Prep. Time
  • 16 Serves
Before I was a vegan I had a few lovely pastry recipes that I never expected to use again, and I pretty much gave up on enjoying store bough pastries as well. It wasn't until recently that I decided to attempt a vegan version of my favourite pastry, the pain au chocolat, which I'm excited to report turned out magnificently! This recipe is wonderfully easy to make but does take time and patience, and should definitely be enjoyed in moderation. Feel free to experiment with different types of chocolate, jams or fruit, too! 

Chocolate Self-saucing Pudding

Chocolate Self-saucing Pudding

  • 15 ' Prep. Time
  • 4 Serves
One of the most common misconceptions about plant based food is that it never tastes as good as 'normal' food, and is made almost entirely of tofu and air. Anyone who has tasted well made vegan food knows this is so wrong, particularly when it comes to dessert. When you eat a non-vegan cake, are you enjoying it because you can taste the eggs and milk? Of course not! Not only are vegan desserts delicious and often even better than their non-vegan counterparts, they're cheaper and quicker to make. 

Easy Vegan Gnocchi with Basil and Mushrooms

Easy Vegan Gnocchi with Basil and Mushrooms

  • 45 ' Prep. Time
  • 2 Serves
Gnocchi is surprisingly easy to make, given how delicious and mysterious is. I mean, it's sort of like pasta, but made from potatoes, but tastes like a delicious pillow of savoury goodness. It's confusing. My vegan version is cheap to prepare, easy to make and can be frozen until ready for use. This recipe includes a list of the veggies I like to have with gnocchi, but feel free to serve it with vegan cheese, pesto, or anything you have on hand. Yum!

Acai, Raspberry and Chocolate Slice

Acai, Raspberry and Chocolate Slice

Acai, Raspberry and Chocolate Slice

  • 02 h 40 ' Prep. Time
  • 10 Serves
I can never have enough healthy dessert options, particularly to take with me to events where my options are highly processed, non-vegan cakes, or a cold glass of water. This slice makes for a very mild, low sugar snack, that is made with wholesome, healthy ingredients and sweetened lightly with dates. It looks fabulous at high teas, kitchen teas or as part of a dessert display, and stores in the freezer so lasts for several months. If you have allergies, you can easily substitute the flour or berries with something more friendly, and decorate as you see fit. And if your sweet tooth needs a little more, simply add a few extra dates into the berry cream mixture and you'll be back on track.
