What’s in Season in April? + April 2019 personal update

What's in season in the UK in April?

Lots of vegetables and greens come into season in April. This is also the time of year when you can start to plant window boxes with fresh herbs: dill, basil & sorrel all come into season in April.

Simple Tofu Scramble


This year, Easter falls during April. Easter is a time for two types of food, in my book:


Whether the chocolate variety or not, the quintessential imagery around easter is of eggs. So what’s a vegan to do? I’ve got a few recipes that directly mimic eggs, including this vegan shakshuka and my vegan tofu scramble, and I’ve got a few more planned in the coming months, too.


Obviously, the most common form of ‘egg’ you’ll find at Easter is the chocolate variety. I have a massive sweet tooth and have developed some chocolatey vegan recipes over the years. Try these indulgent chocolate brownies, this chocolate chip skillet cookie, or, for a lighter option, this vegan frappe with cacao.

April 2019 Personal Update

April sees the start of Q2, and a big business change for me: this food blog (EatsLeeds) is relaunching (only a little behind schedule).

You can read about the relaunch (why I’m doing it, and what to expect from the blog going forward) in this post.

In other personal news: April is my husband’s birthday, so imagine we’ll definitely be visiting some of Leeds’ gluten-free and vegan restaurants to celebrate.

Our new kitchen is finally finished too. See a preview below, but I’m currently writing a post about the whole process, so keep an eye out for that.
