Category: Vegan & gluten-free recipes

I tend towards easy, wholesome meals. The kind of food that falls in the centre of the venn diagram marked ‘quick’ ‘healthy’ and ‘tasty AF’.

I also share some recipes that are a little bit more time-consuming to prepare, a little bit higher in calories and just as delish and good-for-you.

Not a treat. Not a cheat.

Just food that you want to make into an event (dinner party food, family barbecue food, I-had-a-shitty-day-at-work-and-now-Imma-take-the-time-to-fix-myself-something-tasty food)

These recipes are good food before they’re gluten-free food.

They are delicious food before they’re plant-based food.

They’re the kind of food that you can just serve up, to everyone, without a fuss.

Recipe for pink smoothie
FEATURED

I’m definitely an advocate of smoothies for breakfast (when the weather is warm enough to leave my porridge behind). A pink smoothie like this one though, makes a great snack, too. I often work on my blog and freelancing in the evening, after I get home from work, and a smoothie at 5:30 when I get in sets me up for a few more productive hours before a late dinner If its the ‘green’ that puts you off smoothies, berry varieties are the way to go. This one is such a bright, jewelled pink, it looks more like a dessert

simple recipe for green smoothie
FEATURED

I often have smoothies for breakfast (especially in the warmer months). I know a green smoothie isn’t real breakfast (in the way that a bowl of hot porridge or a couple of rounds of buttered toast are). But sometimes I’m in a rush and I just want to kneck a few of my five-a-day and get on with my morning. It literally takes me about 3 minutes to get breakfast sorted when I start the day with a smoothie. This (or some variation on it) is my ‘standard’ day-to-day smoothie. I’ll usually take a green smoothie into the office with

Black bean broccoli & sweet potato bowl
FEATURED

Sometimes, I just need something fresh. After all the indulgence of holidays, these simple, green, filling bowls were absolute bliss last week. Veggies. Grains. Flavour. Perfection in a bowl. Now, I made two bowls from this recipe, but I was hungry as hell when I made it. This could easily serve three, or even four as a light lunch. Consider yourself warned, These are hungry piglet portions of hearty food – I don’t do tiny slimline bowls. These black bean, broccoli and sweet potato bowls make a healthy and filling lunch or dinner when made up fresh and hot, but

Recipe for orange and almond salad
FEATURED

This Orange and Almond Salad makes a quick & healthy lunch. As most of you know, I’ve been oscillating recently between healthy eating, to make sure I look my best on the beach (in two weeks) and at my wedding (in seven weeks) and stress-eating baked goods like there’s no tomorrow. So this week I’m sharing a quick packed lunch that is stuffed with greens and has a little sugary sweetness. Now, I love a bit of kale (see my recipe for winter squash + kale curry). But I know raw kale can have a somewhat bitter flavour. The sugary

Simple banana pancakes
FEATURED

Who doesn’t love pancakes for breakfast? Since going gluten-free I’ve missed pancakes on lazy Sunday mornings. Needless to say, I’ve done a bunch of experimentation to come up with this gluten-free pancakes mix. My best-ever gluten-free pancakes are super simple (and – bonus – laden with peanut butter). Just like last weeks’ recipe for a simple homemade hummous (plus three awesome variations), this recipe for banana pancakes can actually be made way more simply using a personal blender (like an (affiliate link) ActiveBlend). Little blenders like this completely cut out the faff of washing and drying all the parts of

Simple Hummous Recipe
FEATURED

A simple, homemade humous recipe, with three variations on the classic Humous is one of my all-time favourite food groups (and don’t you try to tell me that humous isn’t a food group, because it is definitely part of my food pyramid). Recently, I’ve been experimenting with my simple homemade humous recipe, to showcase a few variations on the classic. So, you might be aware that I’m trying to move towards a more plant-based lifestyle, but it is hard, you guys, especially being gluten-free too. I’m cutting myself some slack at the moment, allowing myself a few meals a week

Aubergine Curry Recipe
FEATURED

My mama makes a mean aubergine curry. This isn’t her recipe, its my own version, but it is divine (If I do say so myself). I’m going to be honest: for some reason this dish took more attempts than normal to develop. Like way more. I wanted it just right and it kept coming out not-quite. I finally nailed it (I think!) so make sure to give this one a try. I know I keep saying it, but honestly it is beautiful! I love to cook with aubergine – I love how roasted aubergines just melt in the mouth. This

Broccoli & Quinoa Salad with Chickpeas
FEATURED

This easy broccoli & quinoa salad just goes right in the centre of the Venn diagram marked “healthy” “delicious” and “can be whipped up in 20 minutes” Seriously, it is so easy to throw together when you’re pushed for time and need something healthy and delicious on the table in between finishing one thing and scurrying off to the next. I straight up love broccoli when its just steamed or wok-fried a little (think green and crunchy, not grey and soggy). I’ve been eating it so much recently, that my husband-of-the-future announced the other day that he had to get some

5-Minute Carrot & Raisin Salad
FEATURED

Make this carrot & raisin salad in 5-Minutes flat This carrot & raisin salad recipe was kindly sponsored by Jamie’s Italian. I’m loving getting back to making and eating some fresh, delicious dishes after the food madness of December. This Moroccan-inspired carrot & raisin salad makes a super healthy lunch, packed with vegetables, chickpeas and olive oil, and it can go from cupboard to table in just five minutes. I love Moroccan flavours – somehow warming and zesty fresh at the same time. Despite being served cold, the spices and olive oil in this dish make it quite warming, and
