Vegan Fried Eggs and Bacon (gluten-free)

I miss eggs and bacon tremendously, but do I really have to miss out?! I surprised myself today by creating my first vegan version of the typical fried eggs and smoky bacon breakfast. This morning, I had a meander through my fridge and kitchen cupboards with nothing but a sparse collection of random ingredients suitable… Continue reading Vegan Fried Eggs and Bacon (gluten-free)

Vegan Mayo (vegan | gluten-free)

I’m not going to lie- I do love mayonnaise slathered on pretty much everything. But now that I’m vegan, my options have become more limited and definitely more expensive. So what’s a vegan to do? Make my own cheapskate version obviously, yeah boi! Which involves leftover chickpea water (AKA aquafaba) so you're literally not throwing… Continue reading Vegan Mayo (vegan | gluten-free)

Coronation Chickpea Sandwich (vegan | gluten-free)

Now this is one dish I truly miss since cutting out meat, coronation chicken. However, what I did realise was that it was the delectable mayonnaise infused with sweet Indian spices and bits of juicy mango and sultanas working in tandem with one another that were responsible for bringing this filling to life and making… Continue reading Coronation Chickpea Sandwich (vegan | gluten-free)

Caramelised Apple, Walnut and Lentil Pate (vegan | gluten-free | grain-free)

It’s not the most sophisticated of foods, but I’m sure many people would agree that the power of toast is one that cannot be compared to many other foods. Not only does it taste impeccable (well maybe a little OTT), but it really is so versatile. A blank canvas that can be utilised for powerful… Continue reading Caramelised Apple, Walnut and Lentil Pate (vegan | gluten-free | grain-free)

Oatcake Slabs (vegan | gluten-free)

Most people (such as my boyfriend) think that, after lettuce, oatcakes are the most boring food to exist on this planet. I on the other hand happen to disagree. I think that their gentle oaty fragrance, milky taste, crumbly texture and versatility as a food item in general are real competitive attributes to this tough… Continue reading Oatcake Slabs (vegan | gluten-free)

Cranberry and Cashew Cream Cheese (vegan | gluten-free | grain-free | no-refined sugar)

Have you ever seen Wallace and Gromit? If so then you’ve definitely heard of Wensleydale cheese! A fresh, fruity, milky cheese usually combined with cranberries. I really think this cashew cream cheese resembles the mild flavours and fruity undertones of the original stuff, but maybe the addition of cranberries just gives it that illusion- either… Continue reading Cranberry and Cashew Cream Cheese (vegan | gluten-free | grain-free | no-refined sugar)

Soybean Pancakes (vegan | gluten-free)

As result of becoming vegan, my boyfriend’s vegetarian diet has also slowly become veganised. He’s a bit of a gym buff, so he requires a healthy dose of protein when and where possible. Flour is not often my go-to protein, but it is when it’s soybean flour. I had no idea I could buy this… Continue reading Soybean Pancakes (vegan | gluten-free)

Curry Night Tacos – Aubergine Curry (vegan | gluten-free)

Curry night is a religiously celebrated weekly event in England by at least ninety percent of the country’s population. It is typically held on a Friday or Saturday night and as the name suggests, it involves consuming as much curry, naan bread, pilau rice and Cobra beers as your stomach can handle and usually, the… Continue reading Curry Night Tacos – Aubergine Curry (vegan | gluten-free)

Marmite and Meaty Mushroom Gravy (vegan | gluten-free)

This subjectively delicious, chocolate spread-lookalike is a salty-as-hell, smooth-as-caramel yeast extract in goo form that is traditionally used as a spread to smother buttered toast with. Little did I realise that Marmite goes beyond the meagre spread status. I’ve used it in place of ketchup for chip dipping, as a filling for jacket potatoes, as… Continue reading Marmite and Meaty Mushroom Gravy (vegan | gluten-free)
