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.

Simple Hummous Recipe

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

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

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

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

Simple Gluten-Free Granola Recipe

Learn how to make homemade gluten free granola, with this super simple granola recipe So, first post of January! There is something about the start of a new year that is just exciting, isn’t there? Though I’m not one for setting resolutions, exactly. I hate the pressure people put on themselves to overhaul their whole lives in January and, for me, setting high expectations for a million different things that just NEED to change right now is a recipe for tears come February, when I haven’t managed to keep up with my #BrandNewLifestyle. I have started making a few changes

Purple Cabbage Stir Fry with Red Wine and Chestnuts

This purple cabbage stir fry with red wine and chestnuts makes a delicious, wintery alternative to salad Now, I love a good salad, but there’s a time and a place, no? This purple cabbage stir fry is a great option for when you want something light and healthy, but it’s just too damn cold for a salad, no matter how delicious it is. This bright purple dish always looks pretty served up as a vegetable on the side (it’s somewhat adapted from my Ma’s traditional Christmas red cabbage stir fry), but is just as delicious served as a standalone lunch

Winter Squash and Kale Curry

Warm up your day, with this fragrant, wintery squash and kale curry This squash and kale curry is perfect for winter: full of warming and comforting flavours of spice and coconut, butternut squash roasted to melt-in-your-mouth perfection, and packing in some green vegetable goodness to (hopefully) help you stave off any winter bugs. So, I did catch a horrible winter bug last week (I don’t think any amount of kale would have kept this one at bay). A little forward planning and preparation (thanks, past me!), have meant that I’ve still managed to get a new recipe up here every


Make up this breakfast the night before, for an energy-fuelled and productive morning Ever feel like there just isn’t enough time in the morning? Especially in the winter, when getting up for work feels like you’re rising in the middle of the night, the morning struggle is very much real. All too often I end up grabbing a banana and a cereal bar on my way into work because I didn’t get up early enough to make a proper breakfast – and now, when it is cold and grey and gloomy is when you most need a good breakfast, to

Blackberry and apple jam recipe

Learn to Make this Beautiful Blackberry and Apple Jam, Straight from the Yorkshire Hedgrows I love this time of year, when the weather gets a bit more sensible, the leaves begin to drop and I can start wearing scarves again. Blackberrying is basically a national sport at this time of year, and my mama spends weeks preserving all the autumn fruit: thick chutneys, fruit infused vodkas, warming crumbles, homemade ciders, and sticky, delicious, toast-ready jams. So, my partner husband and I grabbed a bunch of blackberries from the brambles near our flat, and a handful of apples from the tree
