When I think about summer foods, the dishes that I'm craving from June through September, are always meals that I imagine to be bursting with colour. I think of fresh greens, sweet yellows and fiery reds. That's precisely what this Thai inspired noodle salad is; a veritable rainbow of colours and flavours.

I love a tofu dish, especially when prepared in this way. When you coat the tofu in flour, it's almost like you're batterin...


It was a few months ago that we started cooking with gochujang paste. We found a recipe on Instagram that called for it and to be honest, I had no idea what it was. It's a spicy paste used in Korean cooking that's made from red peppers, fermented soya beans, salt and rice. It's powerfully spicy and has that slight tangy fermented taste, it's a very unique flavour. The tub that we bought from our local Asian market has lasted u...


I love a good burrito, but there is no denying that they can sometimes be a bit heavy. Even the best burritos can leave me feeling sleepy, slow and overfull. What's great about a burrito bowl is that you can have all those delicious fillings, but they're much lighter and fresher without the wrap. It takes all the delicious elements of a convenient street food burrito and makes it into more of an enjoyable sit-down meal.

This bo...


Most people fall in love with Italian food whilst on a trip to Italy, but I've never been to Italy. Instead, I visited Italy vicariously through cooking programs. Last Christmas, I binge-watched practically every episode of Gino's Italian Escapes on Youtube. This show really inspired and motivated me to actually learn to cook authentic Italian food for myself. On deciding this, Aglio e Olio was the dish I learned to make first...


Some of you may recognise this as a grilled cheese sandwich, and to others, it's a cheese toastie. Regardless of what you call it, we can all agree that it can be one of the most satisfying meals.  Our vegan version is just as inviting, warming and delicious! What makes our vegan toastie a little more special is the zing from the sauerkraut. For this recipe, we used crunchy home-made red cabbage sauerkraut. If you can get your...


We hope you've all had the chance to kick back and relax over the Christmas season. We spent the festivities with our families, and for the first time ever, hosted Christmas in our new flat in Bristol! We all managed to squeeze in our flat and, most importantly, ate and drank our share of delicious vegan treats!

Our holidays are over now and we're slowly easing into 2020. It's the start of a new year and a new decade, so now...


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...


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 hearty and satisfying vegan Mediterranean tomato and bean soup is so easy to throw together. I find it’s the perfect meal to warm me up after a long walk when all I want to do is cook up something quick and hot so I can rest my feet and cosy up. We have a little walk by our place, it’s an overgrown disused railroad track that’s lined with trees and shrubs. It’s a haven, our little escape into nature. One of my favourite t...


We’ve been having the most incredible summer in London the past few months, with an ongoing heatwave that’s left everyone feeling like they’re on a never-ending holiday on the Costa Del Sol…or maybe that’s just me?! With all this hot weather we’ve been cooking up lots of salad bowls, experimenting with different flavours and ingredients. One dish that always reminds me of summer is a big bowl of perfectly cooked new potatoes w...


Before Charlie and I went Vegan, one of our favourite places to eat out was Wahacca, there was one literally around the corner from my house when I was a student. I’m slightly embarrassed to say that we definitely had a slight obsession with the place…. we probably ate there at least once a week.

One of our favourite dishes there was the Sonora salad, it’s just so tasty and full of amazing flavours. I’ve been wanting to try and...
