Courgette Tofu Fritters (High Protein)

These courgette tofu fritters make a great speedy dinner option, lunch or high protein snack. I usually serve them with roasted vegetables and a side of hummus (for even more protein and plant goodness!). I'm always looking for new, tasty and fun ways to use tofu. It's such a great plant-based protein option and can easily be flavoured with anything you like. It usually gets a bad rep for being boring, but when using the right flavourings (things like spices, garlic, fresh herbs, etc.) and enough of them, you can turn it into so many tasty and nutritious dishes.  Tofu is a complete protein source, meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids that the body cannot produce on its [...]

Middle Eastern Tofu Kebabs (Vegan & Gluten-free)

These Middle Eastern tofu kebabs are my new favourite quick and easy week day dinner. They're ready in no time and you can enjoy leftovers as a nutritious and protein packed snack!  Tofu, made from soybeans, is a popular plant-based protein source and has several health benefits. It’s my favourite source of plant-protein. Half a regular block (around 140g) offers over 22g protein! Which is an easy way to bump up the protein content in a meal without having to try hard. It contains all essential amino acids needed by the body. Tofu is also nutrient-rich – it’s a great source for things like calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and vitamins like vitamin K and folate. It is also low [...]

Speedy Healthy Black Eyed Beans Curry

A simple speedy healthy black eyed beans curry recipe that comes together in just 20 minutes! Made with wholesome ingredients and tastes absolutely delicious. I can never get bored of bean based dishes. They're such a wholesome and versatile ingredient that also happen to be affordable too! For some reason unbeknown to me, black eyed beans don't seem to enjoy the same popularity as their bean and legume counterparts like chickpeas, white beans and lentils. If you've tried black eyed beans before, you'll know they have a unique taste.  As I do with most of my recipes, I like to give you options to change around the recipe depending on what you like or what you have available in your [...]

Middle Eastern Butter Bean Stew

This Middle Eastern butter bean stew is inspired by my love of Fasoulia - a bean dish I grew up eating and loving!  Growing up, my mum's Fasoulia was one of my favourite dishes. I used to get so excited when it was Fasoulia day! A rich tomatoey stew with white beans and chunks of meat served with rice and a fresh salad.  Although this dish is traditionally made with white/cannellini beans, I decided to make a slight variation and used butter beans instead. The creaminess of the butter beans marries so well with the zingy, rich tomato sauce. They both taste equally as delicious though, so whichever you have available will do. A super speedy meal that's ready in [...]

As well as being filling, it's also satisfying and nourishing packed with so many wholesome ingredients and fragrant spices. I'm using red lentils to make my dal as they're really quick to cook. Even more [...]

Butter Bean Tofu Stew (High Protein + Vegan)

A delicious creamy dish that's ready to enjoy in 30 minutes! This butter bean tofu stew is packed with a whopping 32g protein and 10g fibre per serving! It's also super easy to make with easy to find ingredients.  One of the problems with vegan/vegetarian dishes can easily be lacking in protein. I always make a conscious effort to make sure my meals contain 20-30g protein to make sure I meet my daily requirements. Beans are a good source of protein, but you would need to eat a lot of them to get enough protein, which isn't easy as they're also high in fibre and can be difficult to digest for some. Tofu is one of the easiest ways to [...]

Vegan Cabbage Pancakes with a Chutney Chickpea Dip

Delicious vegan cabbage pancakes lightly spiced and served with a creamy chutney chickpea dip. You're definitely going to want to try this recipe!  I'm very much into savoury vegetable pancakes/fritters at the moment. A couple of weeks ago I made these simple vegetable fritters, which went down a storm, so I thought I would make another version  I find fritters an easy way to prepare vegetables that's a lot more fun, tasty and exciting compared to plain boiled or even roasted vegetables. Don't get me wrong, I love my roasted veggies, but every now and then I like to change things up a little. This recipe is an easy, tasty way to level up your veggie game!  Cabbage is one [...]

Tofu Rice Dumplings (Vegan & Gluten-free)

Delicious parcels that are so quick and easy to make. These tofu rice dumplings make a great main meal or a protein packed snack/side dish. Tofu is one of my favourite ingredients to use in main meals. Even though I'm not fully vegan, I do follow a mainly plant-based diet. I find tofu one of the best and easiest ways to add protein to meals without resorting to using ultra processed fake meats. Tofu can also be high in calcium, especially if it's set in a calcium solution. Calcium is another nutrient that can be lacking in a poorly planed plant-based diet or if you don't eat things like dairy and boney fish. Tofu is a great way to make [...]

Curry Spice Tofu Burgers (Vegan & Gluten-free)

An easy plant-based 'Fakeaway' idea made with healthier ingredients - these curry spice tofu burgers are delicious & a great source of protein! I'm a huge fan of tofu - it's a great plant-based source of protein + calcium, both of which can be lacking in many plant-based meals. It's also such a versatile ingredient, one that I'm always trying new ways to be creative with. I love coming up with fun, exciting/tasty ways to include it into healthy meals. Due to its high protein levels, it's also an easy way to increase the protein content of a disg without adding processed fake meats.  I made these tofu patties a while ago and they were a huge hit, so I [...]
