  • Chocolate and Date Flapjack

    I do love a nice flapjack. There seem to be two different schools of thought on what makes the perfect flapjack - either with a good crunch to it, or a nice sticky chewy affair. My personal preference is definitely the latter, and here is my take on just that!

  • Crispy Salt and Pepper Spiced Tofu

    I used to think tofu was an awful food, even as a vegetarian I refused to eat it as I'd had only had one encounter with it and it had been like eating a horrible tasteless blancmange. Then one evening my husband persuaded me to try some of the crispy salt and pepper tofu he had ordered, and I couldn't believe I had been missing out on it for so long - it was delicious!

  • Chana Masala

    I love Chana Masala. I love chickpeas in general, but doing them this way just makes them even more delicious. There seem to be quite a few different recipes out there, and I know a few call for amchoor and but I didn't have any in the cupboard so I used tamarind powder instead. You could also use lemon juice if you don't have tamarind. I make mine quite spicy but you can adjust to suit your own taste.

  • Chickpea, potato & quinoa burgers

    I made these burgers from left over chickpea curry and mashed potatoes but I shall give the recipe to do them from scratch in case you don't have any leftover curry and mash hanging around! If you do have some left over curry and mash hanging around then I suggest you experiment with putting them together, Making them from scratch will make quite a sizeable batch (around 6-8, maybe even 10 burgers depending on how big you like them) but they can easily be frozen.

  • Sweet Spiced Seitan Skewers

    One of the things I thought I'd miss on becoming vegan was BBQs - because mistakenly I believed that without meat, there'd be little I could eat other than vegetable skewers (don't get me wrong, they're great, but it seems a bit OTT to get the BBQ going just to toast a few peppers and mushrooms). I never needed to worry though, there are sooooo many vegan BBQ, including this one I'm about to share with you - sweet spiced seitan skewers. Now try saying that after a glass or two of Pimms!
