DINNER

30.10.2019

I'd say that Mexican food is up there as one of my favourite cuisines to cook. I love the mix of flavours and textures; sour lime and sweet and spicy bell peppers, crispy lettuce and soft tortillas. Admittedly, this is probably more of a Tex-Mex recipe than an authentic Mexican classic, but it's still got all of those delicious combinations I love.

Fajitas are such a great weeknight meal. They are super flexible; you can dress...

The time of year has come around again for delicious warming bowls of one-pot wonders. Our roasted butternut squash, sage and vegan bacon bit risotto is the perfect dish to get you through the Autumn months. We love using ingredients that are in season, they taste better, and it's more environmentally friendly. So using butternut squash for this recipe seemed like the perfect choice! When coupled with sage and mushrooms, it cr...

We initially created this vegan chorizo and chickpea stew recipe in preparation for a post coming next week. Spoiler: it's going to be a guide on the many different ways you can add protein to a vegan diet, so keep your eyes peeled for that! We wanted to include a part on the little wonders that are chickpeas, so we set ourselves a chickpea challenge; this week Freya and I needed to share with you an original delicious chickpe...

Pesto pasta is the staple of student diets. At least it was for us! It requires barely any cooking, it's cheap to make and it feels like you're eating something vaguely healthy. I used to eat it at least once a week, so I've eaten enough pesto pasta for a lifetime! Since my student days, I swore off cooking it ever again...until now! The way I used to make it was with a jar of shop bought pesto and whatever veggies I had in th...

Over the past few weeks, we've been seeing the first glimpses of summer, I've even ventured out the house in a t-shirt. Admittedly it was only down the road to our local supermarket, yet never the less I feel the beginning of summer is right around the corner. This weeks blog post is a recipe that we think is perfect for sunnier days. It's light and fresh without lacking on flavour, it's a great mixture of sweet and savoury. F...

This last week has marked an exciting milestone for us. We just celebrated our first anniversary of the blog! We marked the occasion by creating lots of new content, then topped it off with some Chinese food from our favourite takeaway Loving Hut. We've learnt A LOT over the past year, and have loved creating recipes, writing roundups and sharing all our vegan tips and knowledge with you. We've gotten so much better and faster...

A few weeks ago, we shared our recipe for these delicious crispy baked tofu nuggets, and they're making another appearance as the star of today's recipe! One of our favourite ways to eat them is to have them as part of a big Buddha bowl. They're a great way to get extra proteins into our meals, whilst also adding a lovely crunchy, crispy texture. This Buddha bowl is also full of lots of beautiful veggies, which helps to create...

Freya first suggested to me the idea of these crispy baked tofu nuggets as part of a recipe we've been developing for a big buddha bowl. I immediately thought the addition of breaded tofu nuggets was a great idea, but what I wasn’t expecting was just how good they were going to taste!

We usually tend to cook tofu quite simply, frying it in a pan in a simple marinade. However, as we sat down to tuck into our salad bowl, with the...

If you follow us on Instagram you might’ve seen us share this meal on our stories before. We probably eat this about once a week, so we’re always posting pictures of it but have never actually written a recipe for it, until now!

Our aim is to share with you a wide variety of delicious vegan food and real, easy meals that we actually eat. Sometimes we don’t make everything from scratch. We eat ready meals and ‘junk’ food and als...

Rewind a couple of weeks and Charlie and I are stood on the side of a road in Mexico City, feasting away on tacos, as the city bustled around us in all of its crazy, colourful glory. The most incredible thing we ate on our trip were these tacos from a little street food vendor, where our entire meal cost about £3 between the two of us. It wasn't fancy in any way, but the food was out of this world! We've been dreaming about th...

There aren't many things in life better than a beautiful bowl of pasta. Especially when had with a nice cold glass of white wine, but we've been struggling to find that one recipe that really sticks! We've tried all sorts of tomato-based sauces, pestos and ragus etc, but we usually get bored and move onto a creating a new recipe, immediately forgetting our old ones! So when I found myself constantly craving this creamy lemon,...

For me, this recipe conveys exactly the message that we want to spread with our blog; that eating a vegan diet doesn't need to be any more difficult or any less delicious than a non vegan one. I've cooked this meal many times for friends and family, where I've made it as part of a simple supper or a more elaborate dinner party, and every time it's always such a crowd pleaser! The secret ingredient to this flavourful dish could...

If you’ve read our post about how to throw a vegan dinner party, then you’ll already know how much we love cooking for our friends and family. There is always something so exciting in the moments before our guests arrive, a sense of hurried anticipation in the air as we finalise the last little details, all before the doorbell rings. I think the best advice to take away from that post is to have a menu that you have tried and...

I’m the kind of person that could spend hours and hours happily working away in the kitchen cooking up a big feast. I especially love cooking at the weekend, because I know I can take my time to cook slowly throughout the day, experimenting with new techniques and flavours. However, not everyone has the time for such luxuries, so it’s good to have a hand full of quick recipes in your arsenal to make sure you can whip up a heal...

The idea of a vegan carbonara might seem a little odd. How would you swap out the traditional ingredients of egg, pancetta and cheese to create an equally delicious dish that was still recognisable as a carbonara? This is the question we were asking ourselves when we were trying to come up with our first ever original recipe. We knew it would be a challenge, but we felt up to the task; why not throw ourselves in at the deep en...
