date loaf
Vegan Date Loaf

Date loaf is a classic teatime treat that's incredibly quick and easy to make – this recipe is another one from my mum!

The recipe is

sunflower cheese
Sunflower Chèvre

I guarantee you that anyone who's ever said "I could never give up cheese" will love this sunflower chèvre (a vegan version of goat's cheese). It's decadently creamy, full of cheesy, umami flavour, with

lime pie
Creamy Vegan Lime Bars

The name says it all. These lime bars make for an indulgent treat, with the fresh lime juice and zest beautifully complementing the creamy texture and crumbly base.

kale chips
Homemade Kale Chips

This is a ubiquitous vegan snack, almost synonymous with the hipster-vegan stereotype. Kale chips are so easy to make, just as moreish as potato chips, but way healthier. If you didn't know what the heck

Black Bean Beet Burger

I've gotta say, I'm pretty fussy when it comes to veggie burgers. I've had too many disappointing restaurant experiences, and my biggest gripe is the texture. A veggie burger has got to hold itself together:

chocolate cake
The Best Chocolate Cake Ever

I've been meaning to develop and share a chocolate cake recipe for a while – and here it is! I made this to celebrate my 10th 'veganniversary'

lime poppy seed cake
Lime Poppy Seed Loaf Cake

I had a bag of limes on hand, and poppy seeds waiting to be used and spelt flour sitting in the pantry... So I decided to put them to good use by making a lime

applesauce
Easy Homemade Applesauce

I bought a bag of apples for snacking, but it turns out they weren't as crisp and sweet as I like them – so, they became applesauce!

mug cake
Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake

If you're feeling a craving for chocolate cake, but baking a whole cake would be a curse in the making, then try this 1-minute microwave mug cake. It's also great if you don't have an

red cabbage salad
Red Cabbage Salad

Red cabbage is possibly one of the most beautiful vegetables out there – at least, I think so. And it's really healthy, with its cruciferous powers and phytonutrients. But one small head of cabbage is

Palmier

This is the perfect recipe for last-minute pop-ins from friends. Just make sure you have puff pastry defrosted (or defrost on low in the microwave). It's a bit naughty (puff pastry has saturated fats, and

meringue
Aquafaba Meringues

I remember when a meringue was still the holy grail of vegan kitchen experiments, before aquafaba was discovered (almost simultaneously, in different kitchens) 🧁 Since then, it’s become a must-have in vegan kitchens everywhere—and

Spiced Molasses Muffins with Flax and Oats

I wanted to experiment with using a generous amount of flaxseed in a muffin, and I also wanted to use up some blackstrap molasses that I found in the cupboard. I added some spices to

gnocchi with oyster mushrooms
Gnocchi with Oyster Mushrooms

I got an oyster mushroom growing kit as a gift (thanks mom!) and it was quite exciting to wake up each morning to see how much it had grown. It even attracted a little spider-friend

vegan greek salad
Vegan Greek Salad

A Greek salad is just not the same without the feta. You could make your own from scratch (there are recipes based on tofu, or almonds) but that’s a mission.

whole-roasted cauliflower
Whole-Roasted Cauliflower

This is my favourite way to have cauliflower: so full of flavour yet still light and fresh enough to include on an indulgent festive menu.

malva pudding
Vegan Malva Pudding

You know that feeling you get when you tuck into a familiar childhood favourite? Mmmm... that is what malva pudding gives me, every time!

This

German Potato Soup

I've been looking forward to this for a couple of months, and now that the cold has set in here in Germany, it's perfect timing.

lemon poppyseed cookies
Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

Who doesn't love the classic combo of lemony tang with poppy seed crunch?

This recipe is adapted from the Martha Stewart website – veganised with aquafaba

crispy potato skins
Crispy Potato Skins

I don't peel potatoes unless a) someone else is in charge of the cooking, or b) I feel like making crispy potato skins. These are one heck of a greasy indulgence, a very occasional treat.
