• Healthy Grapefruit & Avocado Salad

    My only memory of grapefruit as a child, is that my mum would eat it when she was on a diet. She’d eat half of a grapefruit for breakfast, every day. I had no idea what it was, other than sour and apparently what was required to loose weight. Not that inspiring, right?

  • Hoisin Duck and Pineapple Rice (Vegan)

    I never meant to make this dinner. I originally intended to use my mock duck to make vegan duck pancakes, but had a bit of a supermarket failure. What is a supermarket failure? It’s when you go to the supermarket andĀ fail to get what you went there for. I went in with Chinese pancakes on my list, and left without them. Simple as that. Except, things got more complicated because I had all the ingredients for the aforementioned pancakes, and nothing else… But don’t worry, this isn’t a tale of woe and despair, it’s a tale of how I ended up with hoisin mock duck and pineapple rice and a delicious dinner instead.

  • Homemade Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

    Yes, I know. Meatless shepherd’s pie isn’t shepherds pie BUT if I tell my mum or grandma I am making ‘shepherdess pie’ I can just picture the odd look they’ll give me. And, really, this is the pie my mum used to regularly serve for a weeknight tea. It’s got the baked beans and everything! Baked beans in shepherd’s pie seems to be relatively common among mums in England, and yet every recipe I found online neglected to add them. Perhaps I’m making some massive faux pas but… there’s beans in my vegan shepherds pie and there’s no going back now.

  • Meatless Monday: Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff

    It sounds like a walking contradiction doesn’t it? A vegan stroganoff? I mean, yes a vegetarian mushroom stroganoff is pretty common but… a vegan mushroom stroganoff? How can I remove the meat AND the sour cream and still dare to append the word ‘stroganoff’ at the end! Well… I’m not a chef, that’s how. I just like food.
