I had a strong craving for a good, hearty bowl of chilli at 3am this morning and I couldn’t wait to make it. Chilli has always been something that I have enjoyed, but the last couple of weeks it has become one of my go-to meals as it’s easy to make and full of protein; plus beans have always been a staple in my food cupboard, so I’m always luckily enough to be able to throw a meal together one ever I get a craving.

With the utter devastation that’s going on in the world right now, I feel we are all taking comfort in the things that we know and love, and what makes us feel safe and for most people that can be food. Continue reading “Roast Veggie Tomato Soup with Parsley Croutons.”
I’ve been making this taco mix for years and years. I love it. I love it in tacos and I love it as part of a taco bowl. What’s more is that it’s really easy and quick to make, which is how I like to roll these days.

I 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’m also not one to toot my own horn when it comes to my own recipes, but this BBQ sauce is bloody good and I’m so pleased with myself for making it – too much horn tooting? Anyway, make it and thank me later. Continue reading “Smokey Bbq Sauce”
It took me a while to name this sandwich – obviously I didn’t want to name it after an animal. Plus, it’s made from vegetables instead of flesh, so it tastes nothing like pulled pork. However, while I was writing the recipe for this spicy BBQ slaw, my intention was to recreate a ‘pulled pork’ style meal which was slow-roasted in BBQ sauce. But, of course, without the death.

As a vegetarian, I had tried many times to make my own caramel sauce and failed each time – you would think heating sugar and fat into a beautiful golden sauce would be easy. However, I would always be left with bitter disappointment and a pot of inedible, sweet, curdled milk. Continue reading “Quick & Easy Caramel Sauce”
I 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”
Do you often find yourself debating whether or not to pick up those frozen veggie burgers, whenever you come to the frozen aisle in a supermarket? I’m a sucker for it. I love veggie burgers and after 10 years of eating only veggie burgers (no meat), you’d think I’d be sick of them by now, but I’m not. They hold a special place in my ice cold heart and they probably always will.
A month ago I attended my younger cousin’s wedding. It was a beautiful wedding, situated down the Gower in Swansea, but obviously being a foodie, the one thing that stood out for me was the food. I mean I wouldn’t be much of a foodie if the food wasn’t the best part of my day now would I?
If I remember correctly I had, Butternut squash to start with a cute little bread roll – shaped as a loaf of bread – But it was the main course that stood out for me: Crushed potatoes topped with baked salmon fillet and a parsnip mash on the side. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it showed because I inhaled it within less than 5 minutes of it being placed down in front of me. Ever since that day I haven’t been able to get the taste of the parsnip mash out of my mind. So when I bought a salmon fillet yesterday, I knew I had to make something similar. When it comes to food I’m all about the flavour, but I also like to keep it simple too and while it may sound like there is a lot going on with this dish, I promise it’s really easy to make.
