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)

Butternut Squash Dulce De Leche (vegan | gluten-free)

Everyone raves about Dulce De Leche, but to be honest, I’ve never seen what all the fuss is about. Yes it’s sweet, velvety, smooth and sticky and totally screams toffee, caramel, cream and butterscotch- the things humans love- but there’s lots of food out there just as great. Though, I guess what’s unique about Dulce… Continue reading Butternut Squash Dulce De Leche (vegan | gluten-free)

Grape Jam (vegan | gluten-free | fat-free)

It’s definitely a fact that the best thing grapes can be turned into is wine. Ok, well maybe it’s an opinion, but I’m sure at least fifty percent of humans would not beg to differ! The next best thing in the list of world’s best food and beverages is definitely toast. I don’t know how… Continue reading Grape Jam (vegan | gluten-free | fat-free)

2-ingredient peanut butter (vegan | gluten-free)

Today I overheard the word 'penis' bellowing prominently from the mouth of the dean of my university as I exited the classroom shortly after teaching my first lecture of the morning. At first I was like, wtf, with a mild fear of what I might stumble across when I walked into his office- luckily he… Continue reading 2-ingredient peanut butter (vegan | gluten-free)

Caramelised carrot hummus (vegan + gluten-free)

Don’t you just hate it when people take you up on your empty gestures and then you’re left in a shit situation in which you’re required to carry out some sort of physical labour to satisfy them and prevent developing the reputation of being a flop who doesn’t stick to their word?! More often than… Continue reading Caramelised carrot hummus (vegan + gluten-free)

2-Step Peach and Plum Candy Compote (vegan + gluten-free + fat-free)

I deceive you not when I say this really does taste like sour peach sweets, one of my top five candies of all time. Peaches are such cheeky little, playful fruits, with their teasing bum-like shape and baby fluff exterior- although that description makes them sound pretty strange and almost disgusting, but that juicy, soft… Continue reading 2-Step Peach and Plum Candy Compote (vegan + gluten-free + fat-free)

Crumpets…and no they’re not English muffins! (vegan)

These heavenly holes are no ordinary holes. To clarify, I’m not referring to attractive women (slang term previously used in the UK), but to the bread. However, it is a bread like no other. As we know, bread contains ‘holes’ or pockets of air that form during the cooking process- some holes are bigger than… Continue reading Crumpets…and no they’re not English muffins! (vegan)
