Peanut butter, banana and choc chip cookies

What is better to have with a cuppa than a gorgeous home-baked cookie, even nicer if they are fresh from the oven. Unlike cakes, cookies are quick to bake and so having three sons they fitted into a hectic lifestyle easier. Many a drama was solved or pain soothed by handing out a cookie. They… Continue Reading →

Baked Southern fried tofu nuggets

Now the words baked and fried in the same sentence may seem confusing but we all yearn for that crispy crunch of the fried but without those gut-busting calories and this really does hit the mark. At the time being a vegetarian I set out to find a free from veggie alternative to southern fried… Continue Reading →

Smokey BBQ bean burger

When the sun comes out so do the trusty barbeques which can prove to be an absolute nightmare sometimes if you are vegan or gluten-free,  especially if invited to a summer party. I have tried so many vegan and gluten-free burgers which ranged from really gorgeous to pretty nasty. Some were dry or soggy and… Continue Reading →

Totally tropical coleslaw

  A BBQ or a salad without coleslaw for me is just not right. When i became vegan i missed some of my favourite coleslaws. Now though it gave me the push to experiment a little more with different vegetables and fruit. This is one of my favouites which I love with a nice spicy… Continue Reading →

Classic vegan pesto

My favourite go-to sauce is without a doubt pesto. With its zingy garlicky taste, vibrant colour and heady basil scent it screams of the warmth of summer for me. The way it lovingly clings to pasta providing for me an Italian hug in a bowl. When I went from being a vegetarian to a vegan… Continue Reading →

Meringue

On a  previous blog, I established that the humble chickpea water can be used to make stunning meringues which rival the non-vegan egg white version. In fact when I compared my vegan meringues to egg ones the vegan ones stayed crisper for a lot longer. Here is the basic recipe that I use whether I… Continue Reading →

Roast red pepper pesto

Preparation Time 15 Minutes Cooking Time 25 Minutes Serves 6 Dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian As much as I love the classic basil based pesto there is always room to change it up and incorporate some different flavours.

Lemon & coconut drizzle cake

Preparation Time 10 Minutes Cooking Time 30-35 minutes Serves 12 This is a take on the teatime classic, the lemon drizzle cake. Sometimes it is nice to ring the changes, this is done in this case with the addition of some desiccated coconut. You still have that zingy tang from the lemon, but the coconut… Continue Reading →

Nut Butter Cookies

Preparation Time and Resting 1 hour 125 Minutes Cooking Time 12-15 Minutes Makes around 36 Oven Temperature  185 C I adore peanut butter and have many happy memories of sunny days and Sunpat peanut butter sandwiches.

They are all of the below crammed into delicious mouthfuls. Fudgey Decadent Gooey Dense Chewy Dark & bittersweet These… Continue Reading →

Buckwheat Groats & Maple Granola

Breakfast is something I always make time for, my body needs something to satisfy my rumbling stomach until lunchtime. Also, I want something that I know is good for my health. Having tried many kinds of gluten-free cereals, I find them either too sweet, bland but most of all really expensive. Knowing what goes into… Continue Reading →

Buckwheat banana pancakes

Pancakes for me are the perfect lazy morning comfort breakfast, something to linger over with a steaming cup of coffee or hot chocolate. These are perfect for me as they are both vegan and gluten- free. Being fairly new to cooking with buckwheat flour I must admit I was a little worried they would be… Continue Reading →

Nuts to go bar

I did wonder if these bars were just a little too simple to add to the blog, mainly because there is no cooking involved or not really too much preparation come to that either. What they lack in technical ability required to make, they make up for in nutritional content and great taste. For those… Continue Reading →

Green Lentil & Parmesan Rolls

I love savoury goodies, much more so than the sweet stuff. Best of all for me is pastry, be it shortcrust or puff pastry I really don’t care. I just love the way it crumbles when you bite in, sending golden crumbs all down your front and sticking to the side of your mouth. In… Continue Reading →

Southern fried onion rings

I love sides, to be honest, I prefer these to the main course. I would happily have a mixed platter of them for my meal. Onion rings or loaded potato skins are my favourites.  Being gluten-free and vegan, I am usually cast into the wilderness when wanting to order these when I am eating out…. Continue Reading →

Meatballs

As a child, I loved the traditional meatballs, piled high on spaghetti and covered with cheese. Once I became vegetarian many moons ago, like many foods they were condemned to the B.V (before vegetarianism) food repertoire. Up until three weeks ago, it had never occurred to me to try to make a version. It was… Continue Reading →

Super Greens Coleslaw

Coleslaw is a nice side to a lot of dishes. We all think of this creamy vegetable based accompaniment more often at certain times of the year, mainly summer and at Christmas time. Now with the days beginning to have that extra chill factor, I wanted to create a coleslaw that reflects, this time of… Continue Reading →

Slow- Roasted Tomato Pesto

This is the third pesto recipe I have now put on the blog, what can I say I love these flavourful sauces. To me, if they were limited to pasta dishes alone that would be such a shame. I grow my own tomatoes every year, and pesto and passata are wonderful ways to use these… Continue Reading →

Everyday Cheese Sauce

A Bechamel sauce is something I have probably made at least once a week for as long as I can remember. Way before becoming coeliac or vegan. It is the base for many different variations, I think the nicest, being a good old cheese sauce. Cauliflower cheese and Macaroni cheese are such warming comfort meals,… Continue Reading →

Smokey Vegan Chilli

Serves 5    Cook time 1 hr 20mins     Freezes well   The colder weather is now heading our way, and the summer warmth quickly receding.

Carrot, Red Lentil & Cumin Soup

Soup sometimes can seem a little boring, but these warm little hugs in a bowl definitely have a time and a place. Although this simple soup is really quick to cook, it is also hearty, healthy and very filling Red Lentils are not as high in fibre as other legumes, they do though contain plenty… Continue Reading →

Banana & Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Makes 16   The combination of banana and peanut butter, in my opinion, is a top flavour combination. From an early age, the only sandwich for me was sliced banana and peanut butter, encased in soft fresh bread. It is, one I still return to now at the age of 53, my pick me up…. Continue Reading →

Stuffed Potato Cakes

Makes: 8 medium cakes   Potato cakes are one of those things, I know I love, but do not cook very often, which is such a shame. Mashed potato, like rice or pasta, is something I always cook way too much of. I still cook these foods, like all of my boys still live at home…. Continue Reading →

Vegan Kievs

I was having one of those weeks, feeling unwell, and definitely sorry for myself, we all have those days, when the world just seems too much to cope with and hibernation seems like a great idea.

Lasagne my way

Gluten-Free Shortcrust Pastry

I have been told that I am very good at making the pastry, although it is not a thing I really enjoy doing. When I first started making the gluten-free pastry the results were horrendous. It broke into pieces when I tried to roll it, then when I attempted to line a tart tin it… Continue Reading →

Creamy Leek and Mushroom Pie

Serves 4     Prep time 15 Minutes       Cook Time 35 minutes The season of comfort food is now upon us. We want to warm our bodies from the inside out, which is both delicious and filling.

Garlic Cauliflower Mac n Cheese

Serves 4      Prep time 20minutes         Cooking time 20-25 minutes Macaroni cheese is the ultimate comfort foods. I think it is the silky cheesy sauce for me.

Ginger & Oat Crunch Biscuits

Ginger flavour cakes and biscuits for me are synonymous with the winter months. Deliciously spiced sticky ginger cake and parkin for Bonfire night and gingerbread men and houses at Christmas time. It is something I have done since my boys were little. These biscuits are a combination of the family’s favourite oat cookies and ginger… Continue Reading →

Lemon Meringue Pie

One dessert I thought I would have to forgo once becoming a vegan was my favourite lemon meringue pie. As a vegetarian, I used to make my own lemon curd and I always had a good stock in my larder. I knew for that you needed egg yolks. I had made meringues previously from aquafaba… Continue Reading →

Sticky Jamaican Ginger Cake

Preparation time  15 minutes  Cooking time 45-55 minutes  Serves 8-10 slices Two of my favourite cakes as a child were McVities Jamaican ginger cake and golden syrup cake,  They conjured up Sunday afternoon tea times.

Autumn apple oaty crumble

Serves 6     Prep 20 minutes   Total time 50 minutes The most autumnal desserts have to contain the most versatile and in-season fruit the apples.

Its a Date Bar

I used to often buy a cereal bar when out on about, especially when I could not get a sandwich for my dietary needs. Some were lovely but others were overly sweet and certainly did not delay any hunger pangs. Since I found how easy it is to make your own, I now make a… Continue Reading →

Tomato and Roasted Pepper Soup

When the body needs warming from the winter chills, nothing beats a steaming bowl of homemade soup. Checking my store cupboard today dictated this recipe.

Gingerbread

Stollen

If there is one definitive food that signals the arrival of the festive season in our house, then it has to be the German Christmas bread Stollen.  This loaf that has a thick dusting of icing sugar on the outside, is meant to resemble the baby Jesus in swaddling clothing. This buttery bread enriched with… Continue Reading →

Katsu Curry Sauce and Crispy Tofu

Cranberry & Orange Sauce

This is one sauce I eat all year around as I love it. To me it adds such a wondeful flavour to vegan gravies or compliments lots of vegan meals, especially a nut roast.

Low Fat Garlic Potatoes

Serves 4 Preparation Time 20 Minutes Cooking Time 1 Hour Roast potatoes are a stalwart of many a Sunday dinner. To me, they should be golden and crispy where they caramelize in the tin.

Gluten free & vegan bread

Gluten free plain flour blends

For around eight years, I have been baking with shop-bought gluten-free flours. Never really getting the result I wanted, and it was never on par with my pre-coeliac baking days.
