Vegan Chickpea Peanut Butter Curry

A speedy curry that will leave you feeling full and satisfied. Once you try this vegan chickpea peanut butter curry, you'll be making it all the time! Last year I made this easy and quick coconut chickpea curry which has since become my go-to speedy dinner. It's so convenient and it's the kind of recipe that you probably already have all the required ingredients for in your cupboard. Even if you don't, you can easily adjust it depending on what you have available or to your liking.  I wanted to make something similar, but with different flavours just so I have a variation to fall back on if I don't have coconut milk for example or if I'm simply craving a change, [...]

Vegan Chocolate Fudge Cake

(AD) I can’t think of anything better than a decadent piece of cake to get me through a long and stressful week. If you’re looking for a yummy, sweet treat that’s completely plant-based, you NEED this vegan chocolate fudge cake! I don’t often eat cake, but when I do it has to be homemade. I’ve always found homemade to be so much more delicious with a better texture. Shop bought cakes can so easily be dry and far too sweet with not much else in terms of flavour. I usually make a cake when I have people coming over, but the restrictions that we all faced over the last year and a half changed all that. All of a sudden [...]

I love using tofu in recipes. It's so versatile and can be used in so many ways.

These patties have become my new favourite way of using tofu. It's so easy, all you have to do is blend everything together, shape, then fry them for a few minutes. You [...]

With it being January and Veganuary, vegan food and recipes are everywhere! Every year more and more plant-based products are being released into the market, which is amazing! Anything that encourages us to eat more plants has to be a good thing. However, just because something is vegan doesn't mean it's inherently healthy. The problem with a lot of shop bought snacks, including vegan snacks, is that they tend to be filled [...]
