Vegan summer fruits trifle

What a year 2015 has been! I’m totally slack at updating my blog and there are a million projects/trips/photo adventures/things I need to post about but for now this is just a quick post as I’ve been getting so many requests for the recipe of the dessert I made for my family Christmas this year.Continue reading “Vegan summer fruits trifle”

Roasted capsicums + bio cheese

Roasted capsicums stuffed with quinoa, lentils, semi-sundried tomatoes, green and red kale, fresh chilli and cajun spices. Delish! You’ll hear mixed reviews about bio cheese but I don’t mind it. It melts really well which is it’s greatest benefit, meaning for pizza and nachos for the like it works a charm! My local supermarket hasContinue reading “Roasted capsicums + bio cheese”

Know the facts + veggie steamed buns

Below is a rant. If you’re not interested in reading it then just ogle over the delicious dinner I cooked instead. Jamie Oliver’s veggie steamed buns with a few extra ingredients and steamed asian greens. There’s four types of mushrooms in there! ~~~~~ I’m a fairly relaxed vegan in terms of agenda-pushing. If someone asks me aContinue reading “Know the facts + veggie steamed buns”

My new veggie garden

Here is a before and after of my brand new veggie garden. I have the best family, ones that will bring the bulk of the materials over and work all day in the sun and with sore knees to help me kick start my urban farmer dream! In there are two types of kale, carrots,Continue reading “My new veggie garden”

Vegan Halloween

To coincide with World Vegan’s Day we threw a Halloween vegan morning tea at work. We had a great turn out seeing as there is only 4 actual vegans in my whole organisation. All the treats were vegan and we made about $120 in gold cold donations for Animals Australia :) I made a bunch of healthyContinue reading “Vegan Halloween”

Peace, love and broccoli.

I find it bemusing that I’ve had a few weirdly aggressive comments from various people since becoming vegan, so I’m setting the record straight. I decided to transition to a vegan lifestyle because I believe I can live a normal life without being dependent on other animal species to survive. Living a nourished and happyContinue reading “Peace, love and broccoli.”

Peaches and cream glazed donuts [vegan]

Do these really need any words? They are light and cakey and divine. Hopefully they’ll be a hit at work tomorrow, they’re the first thing I’ve baked for my new workmates! Lovely recipe from Keepin’ It Kind – I pretty much followed it exactly, except I didn’t use coconut sugar I just used brown sugar and I alsoContinue reading “Peaches and cream glazed donuts [vegan]”

The rainbow bowl

My newest most favourite food blog is Deliciously Ella. Her recipes are fresh, inventive and totally practical for every day cooking, all her photos are beautiful and happy and Ella herself is just cute as a button, too! I’ve been hearing about rainbow bowls/wrap/salads etc. for a while and I’ve wanted to try my ownContinue reading “The rainbow bowl”

Vegan eggplant parmesana with “cheese” sauce

I’ve been wanting to try an eggplant parmesana for ages! This one delivered everything I hoped for and more! I couldn’t quite get the beautiful smooth consistency of the sauce like in the recipe – I broke my good blender (sadface) and had to make do with a sub-par alternative. Still tasted superb though! EggplantContinue reading “Vegan eggplant parmesana with “cheese” sauce”

Vegan chocolate cups with coconut cream and berries

I’ve been doing some test runs of different recipes that I’m considering making for our family Christmas this year. Me being vegetarian has caused stress over the years for other people when it comes to family meals and as this will be my first holiday season as a vegan, I’m going to make a fewContinue reading “Vegan chocolate cups with coconut cream and berries”

Warm quinoa salad with broccolini, sun-dried tomatoes, olives and pine nuts.

Yet another excellent new recipe I have found, this one from Vegangela. This was my first time cooking with/eating quinoa so I really didn’t know what to expect – I’m such a fan! Can’t believe it’s taken me this long. I used broccolini instead of asparagus, semi sun-dried tomatoes (I always prefer these more) andContinue reading “Warm quinoa salad with broccolini, sun-dried tomatoes, olives and pine nuts.”

Fragrant Indian Chickpea Salad

I posted a photo of this great salad dish I made during the week and quite a lot of people asked me for the recipe, so here it is! I slightly modified the original recipe I found and also halved the amounts as it served 8 and I was only cooking for 1! As muchContinue reading “Fragrant Indian Chickpea Salad”
