Make It, Don’t Fake it – Homemade Curry Pastes

It seems like such a chore to make pastes from scratch; surely only a fool would do so when you can buy such good ones in the supermarket?! There are so many reasons why making your own pastes is so much better than buying them:- You know EXACTLY what goes in them. Next time you…

Granola Goals

This is the easiest Granola recipe, ever. It tatses amazing and contains 0 added sugar as well as being minimal effort. After making this once, there’s a good chance you’ll never buy granola again… You’ll need 120g oats 100g nuts of your choice (I use hazelnuts, almonds and pecans cos they’re my faves) 80g seeds…

Greek Yoghurt and Honey Panna Cotta Recipe

Greek yoghurt and honey is one of my favourite combinations – and the best thing about this dessert is that you could absolutely get away with having it for brunch. Maybe. This recipe is also processed sugar free – that’s not to say it doesn’t contain added sugar; as honey is a sugar – however…

In recent years there has been a huge increase of awareness around health and fitness, with many of us now attending exercise classes, weight training and the use of gyms has sky rocketed.

So the prospect of anyone missing out on this is horrifying. I’ve tasted some good substitutes/alternatives in the form…

Aubergine Daal with Cauliflower (National Vegetarian Week)

The first time I made this Daal was as a side dish for a curry night. Since then I’ve been making it as the main event. With a little chilli kick and a huge amount flavour, it’s an all round winner, and it’s so easy to make! Yellow split peas are full of protein, high…

Leek and Mushroom Pie (National Vegetarian Week)

A few years ago, my sister adopted a vegetarian diet. After over 20 years of being a meat eater she took the plunge and went straight in, cold turkey, or should I say, cold tofu. A while back I asked her if there was anything she really missed since cutting out meat; if there was…
