date loaf
Date Loaf

A simple but delicious dairy- and egg-free classic that's a great accompaniment to a cuppa tea.

lime pie
Creamy Vegan Lime Bars

These lime bars are beautifully citrussy, with sunflower seeds and coconut cream making a creamy filling, and nuts and dates making a deliciously textured base.

kale chips
Kale Chips

A really easy snack that's some serious competition for potato chips – winning hands-down because it's just as tasty yet so much healthier!

Black Bean Beet Burgers

A veggie burger has got to hold itself together: it can't be a mushy mess, and it should have a good bite to it. Flavour is also important, of course, and the look is a bonus. This burger

chocolate cake
The Best Chocolate Cake Ever

This cake is light and fluffy, decadently chocolatey, and it has a beautiful flavour profile thanks to the coffee, soy ‘buttermilk’ and apple sauce. I made a ganache to go over it and topped it with crumbled Aero dark

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 for months… So here’s a lime poppy seed loaf cake made with spelt flour (great for

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! Stir a couple spoonfuls into your oatmeal or smoothie, or use it

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. Yes, it’s indulgent. But at least it just makes one

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 actually a LOT of

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 there’s quite

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 thank goodness it’s

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 complement the strong molasses

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 to live in the

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!

German Potato Soup

This soup is Marco’s – he made it the way he remembers his grandmother’s soup, but without peeling the potatoes (because who has time for that, and there’s so much fibre, vitamins and other good things in

lemon poppyseed cookies
Lemon Poppyseed Cookies

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

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.

Chocolate Protein Power Smoothie

This one is for the runners, the gym bunnies, the climbing nuts. A delicious, milkshakey chocolate smoothie with a whopping 29 grams of protein to power your workout:
