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 […]

Having never previously cooked polenta, up until a couple of weeks ago, we’ve now made it three times in three weeks! We used it in the same way we did when we made meatballs, by creaming it with parmesan. This recipe calls for only a few ingredients, and makes a really delicious warm dish for […]

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, […]
