Dairy-free Veggie Alfredo

Chicken Alfredo, or Fettuccine Alfredo, has long been an Italian classic and household favourite. You can’t deny the delectable appeal of the butter-infused, parmesan-saturated dish, and the cosy food slumber a lot of us have fallen into after enjoying it in the past. For many though, the after-affects may not be so pleasant, or the…

The Veggie Vista

It’s the summer, which on paper means it’s time for picnics. Unfortunately we’re not getting the clearest skies this July, but there have been a few lucky days so far to dip out and relax under the sun. This is a recipe that really showcases the good foods you can bring along with you to…

Made in Minutes, Meatballs

Meatballs are a childhood favourite of mine and they always remind me of home. I grew up loving homemade beef meatballs, but then branched into other kinds such as turkey meatballs and various vegetarian versions, but I’m always dragged back to enjoying these ones. This was a very impromptu recipe, but it came out amazing;…

Sweet Potato & Quinoa Satay

Low in oils and sugar, high in slow release carbs and a substantial source of protein (which some wrongly think vegans don’t get enough off) 🌱 This is a dish to try on your meat free days. The traditional peanut butter sauce that we often associate with chicken, transforms a veggie dish into a hearty…

Maple and Oat Biscuits

I am, for sure, a sucker for biscuits and cookies, so having too many recipes for them is never a worry for me. Is it just me or does the combination of maple syrup and nuts just bring you back in time to long cycles or hill/cliff walks where you stopped to rest and take…

Prawn Pad Thai

I have always been a fan of prawns; I remember my favourite childhood starter being a fresh prawn salad topped with some tangy balsamic vinegar. The older I get, the more I seem to experiment with other prawn dishes. My last recipe, Prawn al Peperoncino, is definitely one of my favourite prawn dishes, and one…

Prawn al Peperoncino

Penne al Peperoncino is one of my favourite meals to date, and definitely a top go-to takeaway of mine. One problem I’ve always experienced (and admittedly sometimes ignored because of the sheer pleasure of enjoying the dish) is all of the dairy within it. I, without fail, have breakouts after a big dairy dish and…

Vegan Smoothie Bowl

Now more than ever, we have more time to get creative in the kitchen. Just like engaging in an adult’s colouring book, gardening or taking to a musical instrument, decorating your food can be an act of mindfulness. Below, I’m sharing just one of many of my smoothie recipes, along with some information about the…

Carrot & Meatball Pasta Salad

It’s sometimes hard to remember or even want to slip enough veggies into your daily meals, without the right planning. As adults it can be difficult, which means even more so for kids. I threw this together in an appealing way, so as to make introducing some healthy nutrients a little easier for the young…

Sweet Avocado Porridge

Sounds strange? Maybe. But if you think it tastes strange, I beg to differ. Avocado for me is  a smoothie staple and with the right amount of added sweetness, it also enhances their taste, and especially their texture. Since I like my avocado smoothies and usually include oats in them, I thought I’d reverse the…
