Sweet Chilli Marinaded Tofu

I’ve always found tofu one of the toughest foods to present well – this may be why we see a lot of tofu scramble on our news feeds, because at least messy is the look we’re going for! After doing my research, firm, pressed tofu is definitely the way to go if you want it…

Sweet Potato & Chickpea Curry

When it comes to meal prep, this dish screams success. The term curry has so many definitions these days, because the core ingredients are so easy to build on. It’s always the kind of meal I go for when a supermarket shop is pending, because the spices I use are always at hand in the…

Quinoa Salad

I’ve always needed some extra encouragement when it came to eating salad. For one, we can all admit it’s the type of food that’s more than likely only eaten if put on front of us than if we were to hunt for it ourselves. Secondly, it never really filled me up. There is no denying,…

Three Ingredient Muffins

We all love an easy bake, and I was glad to see a nice response to my three recipe cookies. Turns out, coming up with another kind wasn’t so tough. Two out of three of the ingredients are the same as those in my cookies, but the outcome is a lot different. I’m a lover…

Vegan Cheese Nachos

Since there was such a nice response to my previous nacho recipe, I decided to go one step further and account for the vegan and dairy-free diets too. The vegan cheese is my main focus for this post, but dairy-free yogurt works very well in substituting the sour cream in the original recipe. This was…

Wholegrain Stroganoff

As if the limitations of what can be done with quinoa were in sight. This high carb wholegrain is pretty bland by itself, but it can be used as the foundation of many foods, be they muffins, the base of cheesecake, sprinkled on a salad or used as breadcrumbs. I loved growing up with rich…

Easy Homemade Muesli

Because it was full of oats and dried fruits, I naively believed that muesli was always a healthy breakfast growing up. A tasty one no doubt, but most of the time it’s definitely not healthy. The oats and everything else within are fortified with sugar a lot of the time, and those dried fruits are…

Plant-Based Biryani

Biryani, another of the world’s most popular Indian dishes, is believed by some to have been created by Queen Mumtaz Mahal of India – the same lady the Taj Mahal was built for as a tomb – in an attempt to salvage the malnourished soldiers of the country centuries ago. Consisting traditionally of mixed rices…

Sweet Potato & Banana Brownies

When I originally heard the concept of sweet potato in a brownie, I was confused. What would this do to the texture and the taste? Would they turn out orange? Nobody wants to ruin their impression of one of their favourite treat foods, so I was uncertain what trying them would do to mine. It…

Blueberry Banana Bread

I incorporate oats into my baking as much as I can. Not only are they a wholesome, unrefined carb, but they tend to save your recipes when you’re not including eggs; whether I’m baking oat bread, oat cookies or this banana bread, it always tends to bind things together well. My Mum’s banana bread was…
