Green Pea and Mint Salad with Griddled Tofu

I’ve never understood why someone doesn’t like peas. Is it the green? Did you only ever have them boiled to within and inch of their life until they’re a swampy colour and consistency? If that is the case then you should really try this salad. The fresh flavours and vibrant colours should take you anywhere…

Cozy Mushroom and Celeriac Pie

There are few things more embarrassing to witness than the UK in the snow. The whole country freaks out and fails to function. Izzie and I went shopping and half the shops were closed and kids were off school due to the inch and a half of snow. Having grown up in Germany where it…

Easy Tofu Scramble

Six years ago when Izzie and I first started dating she made this for me for breakfast and it is one of the first “vegan dishes” I remember eating. As a new vegan (I was a meat eater at the time) this simple dish seemed so different and even exciting. Tofu was an exotic ingredient…

‘Desperate for Summer’ Chickpea Niçoise Salad

January usually seems to drag. By the time February appears I’m relieved and it feels like summer is just around the corner. This year has been a little different though. January went by shockingly fast and I bought some £1 daffodils to celebrate the coming of spring. However as I look out the window on…

Tesco has new vegan meals!

As much as I love cooking sometimes time, energy or inspiration just doesn’t allow for it. Going to the supermarket in my experience when in this sort of mood has usually led to a disappointing bowl of rice and a Bombay potato pot. That’s why like so many vegans I have been eagerly anticipating the…

Spaghetti alla Puttanesca

I loveeee tomato pasta! For a quick and delicious meal you can’t beat this comforter. But do you know what’s better than tomato pasta? Tomato pasta with stuff in it. Spaghetti alla puttanesca translates to Spaghetti in the style of a whore. I’m not sure why it’s called that but I could come up with…

Smokey Mac ‘n’ Cheese with Mushroom Bacon

Macaroni and cheese was never something I liked before I became vegan.  I found the cheesy sauce to be cloying and the whole dish was just overly filling. In fact cheesy white pasta sauces actually led me to think that I didn’t like pasta at all. A ridiculous thing to say. However now that I…

Creamy Korma with Marinated Tofu

Korma is not my usual curry choice. Firstly, it’s basically impossible to find a vegan version in a restaurant. Secondly korma is traditionally a very mild dish and I see it as a bit of a cop out. I’m all about heat! However making my own version has put the korma on my cooking radar…

Crispy Satay Tofu to feed your PB love

I love peanut butter <3. If there is peanut butter in it I will eat it (if it’s vegan :|). This recipe is very easy to make with only a few store cupboard staples. It’s delicious, quick to make and protein packed. South East Asian food is one of our favourite cuisines and can be…

Smokey Vegan Steaks

Sometimes you just want some fake meat. This is a favourite for when I’ve got an evening to cook alone and it’s an easy recipe to make a delicious smokey juicy steak without harming any cows <3 The cows thank us. The main ingredient is wheat gluten aka seitan. This is the main protein of flour…
