Sweet Potato Fritters

Sweet potato is another favorite healthy carb of mine because of its health benefits and the many ways in which it can be used. I’ve recently snuck it into some sweet baked recipes such as my Sweet Potato Brownies, but this time I’m cooking with it in savory form. These fritters bind well with a…

Vegan Chia Bolognese

Chia seeds are a great addition to any meal; a nice inclusion of omega-3 fats, antioxidants fibre iron and calcium. Looking back on some recipes I’ve made with chia seeds has reminded me about their versatility. They’re so adaptable that you don’t even realize they’re there sometimes, like for example in this following chia bolognese….

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…

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…

Feel Good Week: Day One – Blueberry ‘Cheese’cake

You don’t need to be a qualified nutritionist to know how different foods can affect your mood. The main reason I developed a love for healthy eating was because of the link I made with it and a healthy mindset from a young age. Everybody reacts differently to various foods, so it takes each individual…

Goji Berry & Oat Clusters

Back on my previous Endorphin Stew blog, this recipe was one of the most popular. Not one person who tagged me in their recreations had any complaints, which I was delighted to see! These are a no fuss, satisfying sweet snack, that kills the cravings and doesn’t leave you regretting much (as long as you…

Butter(less) Chicken

Not only loved in India, butter chicken is adored by many other nations across the globe. I myself have few fonder memories than sitting around the coffee table with my family on a lazy Saturday night to a range of creamy Indian takeaway dishes – butter chicken having always been my favourite. Since moving to…
