Chickpea May-O

As someone who works out 5 days a week, while also trying to eat in a calorie surplus: to gain muscle and strength. It can be hard not to get lazy and solely rely on protein powder, when it comes to a post-workout meal (lunch). Which is why I like to keep a tub of this chickpea may-o in my fridge, for those times when I’m hangry and need food fast. Continue reading “Chickpea May-O”

Smokey Bbq Sauce

img_9529I know I posted a BBQ sauce recipe with my shredded BBQ Slaw sliders, the other day. But, I feel that a separate post dedicated to this delicious condiment was necessary. Plus, it has taken me over a year or longer, to create a BBQ sauce that actually tastes like BBQ sauce and not a spiced version of tomato sauce. So, I will stress that the molasses and all spice are essential in this recipe, and while the liquid smoke is optional, I still highly recommend it.

I was always an instant gravy kind of gal, but when I ran out of my trusty quick fix a few weeks ago, I had no option but to make it from scratch. Thankfully, it was around the same time I was making a batch of curried butternut and lentil soup too (similar recipe here) so I had a whole bunch of flavours that I could add to the stock.

Basic Vegan Custard

custard.jpgI don’t know if this is only a British thing, but as a Brit I can say that we do love our custard here. It was a main condiment, for me, as a child and I would slather it over all of my Nannas’, homemade pies and tarts.

After I went vegan, I started to crave apple crumble and custard all the time and I quickly started to feel jealously towards my younger-self, who would hungrily pour it over everything. Continue reading “Basic Vegan Custard”
