Vegan Carrot Cake

This is an adaptation of my grandma’s famous carrot cake (which was certainly not vegan). I also created a gorgeous cinnamon buttercream which pairs perfectly with the moist, coconut and carrot flavours of this cake. For the carrot cake:  2 cups (250g) self-raising flour 1 cup desiccated coconut 1 cup good quality soy milk 1 […]

Passionfruit & White Chocolate Muffins

I was lucky enough to be sent a box of goodies from one of my favourite vegan chocolate brands, The Chocolate Yogi and they asked me to create a handful of recipes using their delicious chocolate. In the same week I visited my local fruit and vegetable market and picked up a bag of ripe passionfruit […]

Black Bean Cookies

I’ll be the first to admit that I was a massive skeptic when it came to black bean brownies and cookies. But after seeing so much hype and hearing rave reviews, I decided to bite the bullet and attempt them for myself. And while in most cases I hate admitting that I’m wrong, I will […]

Almond & Apricot Muesli Bars

I’m so sick of having to reheat lunches at uni. Waiting in line for the only two microwaves on campus and then finally heating my lunch, only to realise that half of it’s still cold and I’ve wasted 30 minutes of my break. Don’t you love that? These muesli bars have been a lifesaver for […]

Vegan Mac & Cheese

I’m going to come clean about something with you guys. In my pre-vegan days, I hated mac & cheese. I know, what kind of human am I? Even before I became vegan, I never particularly enjoyed cheese or anything cheesy. I couldn’t understand how people had such an immense love (and maybe obsession) for cheese. […]

Homemade Potato Chips

Yep you read right. Potato chips. Like the Red Rock Deli or Smiths ones you buy in a bag at the supermarket and the service station and on a night out when you’re downing a few too many ciders (don’t tell me you’re not guilty of this). I know you’re shocked that you can make these at home. Trust […]

Lazy Girl Vegan Laksa

I still don’t understand why it is so hard to find a laksa paste without animal ingredients. I’ve scowled countless supermarkets and Asian grocers with no luck. And I don’t know about you guys, but I’m always just a little (okay, maybe a lot…) upset when an Asian restaurant is unable to vegan-ify a vegetarian laksa for […]

Raspberry & White Chocolate Muffins

After a self-induced sugar coma last night (consisting of Oreo ice cream, white chocolate, vegan mnm’s and the famous ‘Vego Bar’), I woke up feeling a little “sugar hungover.” I walked to the kitchen for my morning glass of Metamucil and saw a half opened bag of white chocolate buttons, staring at me. I wanted […]
