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, [...]

Protein Vegan Gochujang Spaghetti

An easy meal that's tasty and nourishing - this protein vegan gochujang spaghetti dish is perfect for quick mid-week meals or Sunday meal preps. I've been using Gochujang paste for years, way before it ever became viral online. It's such a handy ingredient to have in the fridge and an easy way to add lots of flavour to so many dishes. Just 1 tbsp can elevate a dish from bland to bursting with flavour!  Gochujang is a Korean hot red pepper paste. A thick, concentrated sticky paste. The texture kind of reminds me of tomato puree. I've always used it in noodle dishes, but I saw someone use it with spaghetti online and I had to try it! I took [...]

Vegan Cheese Cranberry Butternut Squash Wreath

A festive vegan recipe that everyone can enjoy. This vegan cheese cranberry butternut squash wreath is the perfect plant-based alternative or addition to your Christmas dinner table.  Whether you're a vegan or not, it's always a good idea to have a plant-based option on the Christmas table. Especially now that more and more people are choosing to eat less meat and include more plant-based meals.  A few years ago I was very strict with my diet. I refused to eat any meat, eggs, dairy or gluten. After a while it started to feel quite restrictive and difficult to maintain. I spent most of my time planning, researching recipes and checking product labels. It became increasingly obvious to me, and everyone [...]

Middle Eastern Chickpea Aubergine Flatbreads

These Middle Eastern chickpea aubergine flatbreads are prefect for a healthier 'fakeaway'. They taste amazing, packed with flavour and are so easy to make! I grew up eating something called 'Lahm Bi Ajeen', which literally translates to 'meat in dough'. It consisted of a basic flatbread dough, topped with a tomato minced meat mixture. Like a Middle Eastern pizza, if you will, flavoured with Middle Eastern spices.  I've been making a vegan/vegetarian version for years, the toppings of which vary depending on my mood and what I had available at the time. However, chickpeas and aubergine are probably my favourite toppings for this recipe, so that's exactly what I'm using today. A Middle Eastern and Indian flavour fusion - I'm [...]

Iraqi Lentil Soup (Vegan)

Super easy and nourishing soup that's ready in 30 minutes. This Iraqi lentil soup only calls for a handful of ingredients and there's no blending required (less washing up!). It's also fairly high in protein and fibre.   I feel like Iraqi food (and Middle Eastern food in general) doesn't get anywhere near the attention it deserves. I know I'm biased when saying this (because I grew up eating it), but Middle Eastern food is the tastiest, most delicious cuisine ever! It can also be fairly healthy with lots of colourful veggies, protein, spices and fresh herbs.  As you can imagine for a hot country like Iraq, soups weren't the most popular thing to eat. This is the one and only [...]

Spicy Chickpea Avocado Toast

A delicious meal that can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner! This spicy chickpea avocado toast is a must try! I love having toast on weekend mornings for brunch - it makes a really nice change from my regular breakfast, which tends to be sweet like a smoothie or porridge. There's something about having a savoury breakfast that makes me feel like it's my day off to relax and unwind! This spicy chickpea avocado toast is one of my go-tos for lunch when I want something quick and easy that's also satisfying and healthy. It's also perfect for those days when dinner time arrives and you haven't had a chance to plan anything and want to whip something up [...]

Vegan Quorn Crunchy Strips Nachos

*This post is sponsored by Quorn* Mouth-watering nachos layered with Quorn Crunchy Strips, salsa, guacamole and vegan cheese. Super easy to make and perfect for a speedy healthier ‘fakeaway’. I’m not going to lie, I am partial to a takeaway. My partner and I sometimes order in on a Friday evening and it’s something we both look forward to from time to time, particularly if it’s been a stressful week. I’m the one who usually prepares meals and as a food blogger who spends most of my days thinking about recipes, testing recipes and creating recipes for content, I like to give myself the day off cooking on Friday nights. It’s always nice to have someone cook for me for [...]
