Vegan Apple & Cinnamon Bread

I love fruit loafs and spiced cakes that you can toast in the morning and have for breakfast. I am not a massive fan of banana bread though as I don’t generally like anything flavoured with banana, I just think it’s got a funny aftertaste. And so this is where I came up with an…

Pear & Amaretto Tart

This tart fits so well in the gloomy autumn season. It’s got this something that just makes you want to sit down in front of a window, sip on a latte, watch the rain and eat cake. And this cake is a very, very good cake. It’s moist, crunchy and sticky and kinda just melts…

Chunky Aubergine & Tomato Pasta

I love rich and hearty pasta sauces with chunky veg and loads of herbs. I like adding hummus to sauces because it makes them extra sticky and ensures that all of your pasta is covered with the sauce. There is just something so beautiful and warming about a bowl of pasta and a glass of…

Vegan Brownie-Cheesecake with Raspberry Compote

Before I went vegan, brownie-cheesecake was my absolute favourite among all cakes. It was also one of the first cakes I have ever made from scratch; I must have been about 12 or 13 years old. It was just this perfect cake, I never knew whether to go for a cheesecake or a brownie and…

Vegan Nutella Tart

This tart is extremely rich and indulgent but at the same time very healthy and nutritious. The base is crunchy and slightly salty and the filling is wet, gooey and very sweet but there is this nice bitterness to it, too! It’s all just really, really delicious and you have to try to make this…

Vegan Cherry Frangipane

I love all sorts of almond tarts and cherry frangipane is definitely my favourite! I made this recipe as an experiment and I the result blew my mind. This sugar-free vegan version tastes exactly like the actual thing if not better! The base is perfectly crunchy and buttery and the filling is so indulgent, soft,…

Grilled fig & pecan salad

I absolutely love figs and now is the best time to eat them fresh, so I try to use them as much as I can. This salad is such a delicious way to healthy and nutritious lunch or dinner. It has a lovely combination of sweet figs, peppery rocket and crunchy pecans. It’s easy to…

Plum & Amaretto Tart Tatin

This vegan twist on a French classic is an absolute winner! The tart tastes sooo good with plums (which are now in season!) and the addition amaretto makes such a perfect match. This tart is really easy to make and it will all be ready in under an hour. I always thought it would be…

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cookies

The description is going to be short because these cookies are the quickest thing on Earth! You literally just throw all the ingredients together and put them in the oven, job done! They are also healthy and delicious so really there is nothing to dwell on, you just have to make them. Ingredients (makes 12):…

Vegan Tapas

I absolutely love tapas. I love the variety and the endless possibility of mixing flavours and textures. Spanish tapas is normally quite heavily meat and cheese orientated but there’s some great vegan options too! I composed my tapas of patatas bravas, padron peppers, guacamole lettuce boats and garlicky mushrooms (I’m not sure if the lettuce…

Vegan tiramisu cheesecake

This delicious cheesecake is super decadent but still light and fluffy. The addition of coffee and alcohol makes it taste a little bit like tiramisu, but I thought it would be good to refresh the taste a little with some fresh raspberries. If, however, you are looking to get something that reminds more of the…

The Fluffiest Vegan Chocolate Mousse

This mousse is so unbelievably good and so very real! I still can’t get over it and still can’t believe that it actually worked and that I made a perfectly fluffy and airy chocolate mousse using… CHICKPEA WATER! It’s just crazy! Plants are amazing and powerful and they never stop surprising! I used to make…
