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 [...]

Easy Dal With Vegetable Paratha

This easy dal with vegetable paratha is such a yummy and cosy meal to enjoy on a week night. Both the dal and paratha are really easy to make and are packed with plant protein, fibre and nutrients. They're also packed with so many aromatic flavours.  Dal is one of those meals that are so easy to make, yet so delicious and comforting. It's also really healthy with a good amount of plant-based protein, fibre and antioxidants! Each serving offers 20g protein and 23g fibre! 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 [...]

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 Chickpea Sweetcorn Fritters

Vegan Chickpea Sweetcorn Fritters A healthy snack that's quick and easy to make and packed with flavour! These vegan chickpea sweetcorn fritters can also be enjoyed as a side or even as a savoury breakfast! These fritters are easy - mix in one bowl - kind of recipe. You can change it around and add other vegetables or beans that you have available in your fridge/cupboard. Packed with spices and lightly fried making them taste super delicious whilst still being healthy. They also happen to be fully vegan and gluten-free! They make a really nice light lunch, but also a great appetiser/side dish. I also love heating up leftovers in the morning to enjoy as a savoury breakfast. As well [...]
