THIS IS MADE WITH FRICKIN' CHICKPEA JUICE! And I realise that sounds entirely unappealing, but it tastes like actual heaven so who cares. Whenever you have a jar/tin of chickpeas/beans, drain all that slimy liquid (called 'aquafaba') and store it in the fridge for baking days. Mousses, cupcakes, brownies, meringues (did I spell that right?),… Continue reading Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse (DF)
Meditation is HARD. But it's also important (or so they tell me). I dabbled like an insecure teenager with their first spliff last summer, but work threw me for a loop and I gave up just as I was getting into the swing of things. Unsurprisingly, things got a bit shitter up top this year.… Continue reading Meditate, Appreciate.
Look. LOOK HOW BEAUTIFUL. And not a single animal went into the making of it. (Except this animal. I did work pretty hard on it.) What's in it? Old El Paso crunchy taco shells Veggie mince (Quorn, Fry's, Tesco, any! Edit: If you want to swerve soy/mycoprotein products, try my 'veganese' recipe!) Green pepper 2… Continue reading Taco Tuesday 🌱
The best 'spag bol' I've ever had. EVER. (That's including the meaty version I used to eat pre-veggie days.)

I know the… Continue reading Spaghetti Veganese
With a new year comes a new slew of 'new year new me' bullshit. Everyone gets pretty gung-ho about decluttering their homes and wardrobes, but what about our digital life? I'm one of those absolute heathens who not only has 30+ tabs open on their mobile browser in normal mode, but another in incognito. (Nothing… Continue reading Digital Decluttering
Cashew nuts are bloody wonderful little things. After going veganish I had a little panic about how to make creamy sauces, but turns out soaked cashews do the job. Who knew! What's in it? 1 tsp salt 1 tsp pepper Few squeezes of lemon juice 1/2 cup cashew nuts 1/4 onion 1/4 cup nutritional yeast… Continue reading Creamy Cheesy Alfredo Sauce (no dairy)
Bake time: 30 minutes What's in it? Dry: 3 cups flour (I used plain but I think I'll opt for self-raising next time because my cake was a little flat.) 1/4 cup raw cocoa powder 2 tsp baking powder 1 tsp salt Wet: 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (yes, really.) 3/4 cup oil (vegetable, olive… Continue reading Easy Peasy Chocolate Squeezy CAKE 🌱
