Vegan Tomato Ragu

Vegan Tomato Ragu & Butter Bean Mash

16th August 2017

I’m currently reviewing health food-box, Mindful Chef. Last week I received a recipe card, and box of ingredients, for a vegan tomato ragu with butter bean mash. Both myself and Stew were so impressed with the dish, that I thought it deserved it’s own post on my blog. I’ve since made it a second time […]

Black Bean & Charred Pineapple Wraps

20th June 2017

We made this delicious dish at the weekend for lunch, but it would equally make a great dinner option. Our serving sizes are rather big, so depending on how much you eat, this recipe could serve 4 (1 wrap each), with a side salad and perhaps some grilled corn. You may look at the photos […]

Thai Coconut Courgetti Soup

20th September 2016

I normally find thinking of a dish for dinner quite stressful, especially when we have very little food in the house. However, sometimes I really enjoy it, particularly if we have say one ingredient left over in the fridge that needs using up. In this case it was a couple of courgettes. We hadn’t used […]

Roast Cauliflower Tagine

29th March 2016

Stew and I attempted our very first tagine last week. We found a recipe on Good Housekeeping for a roast cauliflower tagine and made a couple of adjustments to make it our own. Essentially it was fairly easy to make, but it did take a little while. This was mainly down to the fact we […]

Carrot & Miso Soup

8th March 2016

There is nothing more simple than making a soup. I grew up thinking Heinz tins of soup were the only option, until I moved out and my friend introduced me to a hand blender! This simple gadget is a lifesaver in the kitchen. I now regularly make my own houmous, smoothies, juices and soups. I […]

Warm Lentil Salad

12th January 2016

If you enjoy vegetarian food, or partake in Meat Free Mondays, this dish could be for you! Lentils are great alternative to meat, and are really good for you. They help bulk up a meal, and add great flavour to a dish. We often use lentils in our curries, but they’re normally of the red […]

Mushroom Soup

22nd December 2015

There’s nothing better than a big bowl of warming, hearty soup, on a cold winter’s day. It seems to be one of our go-to meals just recently. It’s also great to make in large batches, and have leftovers for lunch at work for the week. Having already made and featured a spiced root vegetable soup, […]

Chana Masala

14th July 2015

By now, I’m sure you all know how much I adore Indian curries. They have to be my favourite dish. In fact, Indian food in general is my favourite cuisine, with Japanese coming a close second. Each time we make our beloved vegan curry – using the same recipe – we add a different vegetable, […]
