I have a really good korma recipe that I have perfected over the years, based on how I remember it tasting when my mother used to make it for us as kids. But unfortunately mine has quite an extensive list of ingredients and if I haven’t pre-prepped the korma paste for my freezer beforehand, then I don’t often get to enjoy it. However, this 10 minute curry is a saviour for when I want a curry in a hurry and combined with 2 minute microwave rice, you can have a good, nutritious vegan meal in less than 15 minutes.

This creamy veggie soup has been a firm favourite of mine for a while now, it’s filling, satiating, and full of protein and nutrition. A nourishing soup is something I always feel like I need during the month of December and I know I’m not alone when I say that.
I’m a sucker for instant gravy: it’s quick, easy and it doesn’t taste all that bad. However, you can’t beat a good homemade gravy, it’s just a bit of a faff to prepare. So this year, I’m try to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible, while still preparing delicious food and for the most part I’m doing alright. My prep is always done the week leading up to Christmas Day, so all I really have to do is heat the gravy and enjoy.
Eating cranberry sauce with my Christmas dinner has been a new experience for me the last couple of years, but definitely one I wish I had started sooner as it’s delicious and pairs well with my bacon wrapped roast with sage and onion stuffing. But more importantly, its really easy to make. Continue reading “Cranberry & Orange Sauce”
With only one week left until Christmas, food prep is in full swing and I can safely say that I am right on top of things this year. I’m probably the most organised I’ve ever been at Christmas and I’ve even had these rosemary and red onion sausage stuffing balls prepared and sat in my freezer since the beginning of the month.
You can’t beat a chocolate truffle at Christmas time, especially ones spiked with Baileys and drizzled with white chocolate. You will easily win over my ice cold heart with that combination. I’ve already made these truffles twice this month too and as you can imagine, neither batch have lasted me very long and now I’m being asked to make more for Christmas. So I think that’s enough clarification that these truffles are delicious.
In amongst writing and scheduling my Christmas recipes last weekend, I was browsing through my blog trying to remove any old recipes that I just didn’t feel good about anymore, when I came across my 3 ingredient peanut butter brownies and I had to remake them. But this time with Nutella.
I spent the weekend writing my Christmas recipes and scheduling them on the blog, when I realised that I have never posted my full mince pie recipe and I LOVE my mince pie recipe. It’s one of the only Christmas recipes on my blog that I make every year, without fail and they always go down well with all of the family. Continue reading “Mince Pies with a Boozy, Nutty Twist.”
It’s been a while since I posted anything to the blog, over a year I think, so I thought I would kick off my return with a vegan French toast recipe that anyone can make. Continue reading “Vegan Banana Pie French Toast”
I think the majority of my recipes are healthier vegan, or vegetarian versions of my childhood and this recipe is no different: apple, raisin and blueberry crumble.If you are a Brit and had school dinners at primary school, then I’m sure you’d have had some sort of crumble along with custard, as your ‘afters’ too. I loved it. Which is why I decided to make some myself.
The apples I used are just standard apples from the store. Although, I can’t wait until the autumn when I can get some fresh cooking apples from my aunties next-door neighbour, to bake with. The crumble topping was taken from my vegetarian protein peach crumble squares here and modified to make it vegan.
- 4 Medium Apples
- 1/4 Cup Raisins
- 1 Cup Blueberries
- 1 Cup Rolled Oats
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
- 30g Vegan Butter (koko dairy free spread)
- 1/2 Cup Sweetener
- 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
- 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
Pre-heat oven to 170c (fan assisted)
Blend half of the rolled oats in a food processor, to form a flour/powder, then add the oat flour, coconut flour, cinnamon and sweetener into a bowl and whisk together to remove any lumps.
Next, peel, core and finally chop the apples into small chunks, before placing them into ramekins or an oven dish; along with the raisins and blueberries.
Add 1/4 cup of water to the fruit, cover the dish with foil and place into the oven for 40 minutes.
When the fruit has cooked, drizzle with the maple syrup and add the crumble topping, be sure to push the crumble on to the fruit with a spoon or your hands and then pop back into the oven for a further 10 minutes, or until the crumble has browned.
Now all that’s left is to serve with some vegan custard or coconut cream. You can even switch out the apples, blueberries and raisins for some summer berries or whatever your little heart desires.
