The Souper Series: Homemade Vegetable Broth

There has been a lot of talk about ‘bone broth’ as of late, and the healing gut powers it claims to provide. Essentially it’s just a fancy name for beef (or chicken) stock, but people claim that the broken down animal bones contain essential vitamins and minerals which can alleviate joint and gut pain, brighten […]

The Souper Series: Classic Vegan Pumpkin Soup

This is easily one of my favourite soup recipes. Even during the months outside of winter I find myself returning to this recipe over and over again. It’s simple, comforting and perfect served with crusty bread and a sprinkling of poppy seeds. When chopping and deseeding the pumpkin, I keep the seeds and roast them in […]

The Souper Series: Curry Pumpkin & Coriander Soup

This recipe is an extension of my favourite classic pumpkin soup. It is just as creamy and pumpkin-y as its original, however this one packs a punch with its mild curry flavours and fresh coriander. Plus, it’s a great flu-fighter, loaded with chilli, ginger, garlic and turmeric! It’s delish served with basmati rice, poppy seeds and […]

Vegan Mushroom & Spinach Triangles

Just like any other student, during my exam period I began to crave every single snack under the sun. Chips, chocolate, sour patch kids, oreos, fries… You name it, I was craving it. And in an effort to curb these cravings of mine, I decided to attempt an old favourite. I wanted something that I […]

Mediterranean Cous Cous Salad

I was never a huge vegetable lover before I became vegan. I would eat the odd veggie here and there, but the thought of actually filling my plate full of vegetables just didn’t really do it for me. For a while after becoming vegan, I literally had to force myself to eat (and try and enjoy) vegetables. […]

Meaty Mushroom Sausage Rolls

I don’t think I’d be the first vegan to admit that there are some foods out there that just cannot be replicated and ‘veganised’ (no, I know that’s not a real word, but let’s just go with it). More often than not, they’re the foods I miss most. Like omelettes. As much as I hoped […]
