I am obsessed with porridge at the moment. Firstly, I love how something as simple and inexpensive as oats can create an abundance of nourishment. On top of that, it’s just so incredibly versatile. You can have a bowl of porridge every day and never get bored. I mean, the flavour combos are endless. Take my Vegan Plum and Coconut Porridge for example. A scrumptious mix of nutty and sweet, crunchy and smooth, this bad boy is nourishing, easy to make, and super tasty. Yes please!
There are some things you just shouldn’t keep to yourself. Take my Sweet Potato Fries for example. Salty, sweet, and crunchy, they’re the perfect side for a variety of dishes – veggie or otherwise. Having said that, these delicious rods of sunshine don’t have to be regulated to a supporting character role. I’ve also been known to load them up with my favorite toppings for a scrumptious game night or movie marathon snack. So good!
What’s cooking you ask? You know how it goes, some weeks I feel like I could take on the world whilst others… I absolutely love cooking and sharing my recipes here with you all but for some reason this week, I honestly felt like I had nothing to say. Like I’d used up all my words or something. And do you know what’s even weirder? I didn’t really feel guilty about it. For example, normally if I’m a little pressed for time or unprepared for my Monday post I will totally stress out. I’m not quite sure what I think will happen but I made a commitment to myself when I started this journey. Plus, I am a girl who likes routine.
These Cranberry Bliss Balls are sweet, chewy, and moreish. Perfect with a cuppa or in a lunchbox. What’s more, it only takes 4 ingredients to make yourself a delicious treat that’s also good for you. Yes please! 🙂
This Roast Pumpkin Salad with Sunflower Seeds and Balsamic Glaze is a real winner. It’s a harmonious combo of flavours and textures. What’s more, this is a salad that tastes amazing on it’s own or as a side dish. So, let’s get into it! 🙂
The following dish is the epitome of what my blog is all about. Simple home cooking that’s nourishing and tastes great. My Pasta with Roasted Mushrooms and Crispy Kale has that in spades! It’s a great weeknight dish that comes together effortlessly and always pleases a hungry crew. Even my meat-eaters look forward to a big bowl of this goodness.
For the second instalment of my Salad Dressing series I thought I’d dive right in with one of my all-time favs. This Creamy Tahini Dressing is versatile and so, so yum. Perfect for drizzling over your salad or roast veggies. Having said that, this velvety condiment isn’t just about flavor, it’s actually super nourishing too!
Looking for fresh ideas for your Meatless Monday? Then look no further than my Roasted Cauliflower Power Bowl with Sumac and Vegan Ricotta. It’s absolutely delicious! A satisfying yet light meal, this power bowl will have your people wishing it was meatless Monday everyday. (Yeah, I know that was a bit of a stretch. Don’t @ me. 😉 )
Like many of life’s great revelations, I came upon the following cookbook by accident. Browsing my local bookstore at Christmas-time for last minute gift ideas, I wandered over to the cooking isle to see what’s new. It was there I found Smith & Daughters: A Cookbook (that happens to be vegan). Full of deliciously innovative vegan recipes I instantly knew I needed this beauty in my collection. So… Merry Christmas to me then? 😜
What better way to celebrate all the delicious stone fruit around at the moment than with a bowl of my Vegan Peachy Porridge? Bursting with flavour, nutrients, and slow burning energy I am just loving this bowl of goodness. In fact (just between you and me 😉 ) sometimes I’ll make it for lunch or dinner instead. Hey, my taste-buds don’t know what time of day it is…
