Lemon and Poppy Seed Cookies

Lemon and Poppy Seed Cookies

Lemon and Poppy Seed Cookies! It had to happen eventually! Cookies are the best – the only downfall is, they usually don’t last very long out of the oven! Poppy seeds are interesting little seeds, with a bluish hue and quite a distinct flavour. Nutty, and a little bitter, they go well with sweet things, as that masks the bitter flavour. Even though derived from the opium poppy, these little kidney shaped seeds do not contain any narcotic properties! They are…

Kajo Veggie Stock

Kajo Veggie Stock

Homemade veggie stock is just the best! At least you know what ingredients are going into it and that there’s no hidden additives or anything like that. My Mum actually made this one (thanks Mum!). She called it Kajo veggie stock because it’s the first two letters of mine and Josh’s name! Pretty clever hey!? It was actually my Dad’s idea – Mum was thinking out loud for a name for the stock, that sounded like mine and Josh’s name…

Simple Spicy Pasta

This Simple Spicy Pasta is where it’s at right now. We could eat it every night for dinner I reckon! Isn’t pasta just the best? We love it soooo much! It’s such a quick easy dish and so filling. If you don’t like spice – you could omit the chilli flakes! (we won’t mind!). We used onion but not garlic in this recipe. We find if we eat too much garlic we get weird dreams (anyone else experience this!?) –…

Apple Tarte Tartin

I present to you – A Vegan Apple Tarte Tatin! This recipe is an old favourite of mine that I haven’t made for years! – Then I had it in my mind for weeks and weeks and even bought apples, then would use them for something else – but I finally got around to making it – and I’m glad I did – this is just soooo good. I just did some research on this French dessert and found out…

Chai Spiced Pancakes

Chai Spiced Pancakes

I wanted pancakes, but I didn’t want just ordinary pancakes. At the same time I was thinking of our Chai Spiced Banana Bread, that will be in our upcoming recipe eBook, and then I had a thought: CHAI SPICED PANCAKES! What could be better!? I’ve loved Chai for years, and now adding it into pancakes and other dishes, makes it even better! I just love the flavours, especially cardamom. It’s my absolute favourite. If you love cardamom too, you’d love…

Spicy Taco Bowls

Spicy Taco Bowls

Gosh these Spicy Taco Bowls were soooo good! We were experimenting with a nacho recipe for our upcoming eBook, and we had some of the bean mixture leftover – so I created these Spicy Taco Bowls! I discovered THE best trick the other day – and it was putting a tortilla in a large-ish bowl, and baking it in the oven for around 10 minutes until it becomes a hard shell which you can stuff with whichever ingredients you like!…

Vegan Pumpkin and Date Scones

Pumpkin Scones

I was going through my emails the other day (there are thousands in there – I really need to clean them out!) and I thought I’d do a search for recipes in there. Well, this scone recipe came up that my Aunty had sent me ages ago – it used butter and cream, so I have modified it to make a these Vegan Pumpkin and Date Scones. They turned out delicious! – Especially fresh out of the oven with some…

Watch out! It’s the attack of the vegan bowls! I recently received the Vegan Bowl Attack recipe book by Jackie Sobon in the mail, and IT IS AWESOME! Jackie is the person behind the Vegan Yack Attack website, and creates deliciously colourful and mouthwatering recipes to drool over and re-create! I made Jackies “Fish” Taco Bowl, which was out of this world! The flavours and colours were just incredible, and Josh and I both felt amazing after eating all this goodness in a…

Nourishing Dragon Bowls

Dragon Bowl

I just love how I feel after I eat a big Nourishing Dragon Bowl. My body thanks me. All the goodness of brown rice and a bit of salad, fermented foods and a protein source, like tofu or tempeh, really makes for a great combination – with a delicious dressing drizzled on top of course! You could easily have this dish without a dressing. But dressings are so good, and I think they take this dish up a notch (or…

Beetroot Falafel

These Easy Baked Beetroot Falafels are sooo tasty – and quick and easy to make. They’re great to freeze for a quick meal and they are so versatile – you could have them in a wrap, a pita pocket, on a pizza, or on a mezze plate with dips, olives, some pita bread, salad and other delicious things. I love the colour of these falafels, so beautifully bright. Beetroot is great for giving colour to things – but be careful, it…
