Video: Pizza Houmous

Pizza Houmous

This week, we combined two things we really love to come up with a third thing which is equally, if not more, awesome. Pizza houmous is where we’re coming from today, and let me tell you, you are going to enjoy this one.

Let’s break this one down a little so you can understand the layers of what is going on here. First you have a pizza-inspired houmous dip which is baked and served in a bowl ready to eat. Then there’s the topping of cheese melted right over the top of the houmous. Finally, you have the homemade nachos covered in cheese, representing the crust and also serving as a scoop to eat all that lovely dip with. read more

Bad Brownies Salted Caramel

Bad Brownies

We are thrilled this week to be reviewing Bad Brownies, after we had some of their delicious treats sent out to us as a sample. “They must be lying,” was the first thing J said when we opened up the package and took our first bite. “There’s no way that’s vegan.” read more

Asda Crispy Lemon & Pepper Chicken Style Burgers

These lemon and pepper chicken style burgers from Asda seemed kind of intriguing when we saw them in the frozen section, so we decided to give them a go. They don’t look hugely exciting – after all, plenty of other brands produce this kind of burger – but we thought, who knows? These could be the best of the bunch, and we won’t know until we give them a try. read more

Roasted Pepper Chilli Nachos

We love nachos – you know that. We even came up with a way of making our own that was healthier than buying them in-store. But how can you take a plate of nachos and make it even healthier? By using roasted peppers to create chilli nachos loaded with all the best bits, that’s how. read more

Cheatin’ Pepperoni and GranoVita Pepperoni

GranoVita Meat-Free Pepperami

We’ve got a couple of meat-free substitutes to review this week: Cheatin’ Pepperoni Style Slices and GranoVita Meat-Free Pepperoni. I’m in a bit of a unique position compared to many vegetarians because of the fact that I’ve never eaten either of those foods in their true form, which makes it a bit interesting when it comes to reviewing them. read more

Video: Cheat’s Healthy Cheese and Onion Pasties

Cheat's healthy cheese and onion pasties

These cheat’s healthy cheese and onion pasties are absolutely delicious, basically a modern marvel, and so much healthier than the real thing you won’t feel guilty about eating five. Intrigued? Wait until you hear how we do it.

The main problem with a pasty, AKA one of the most delicious foods you can buy on an average high street which is fully contained within its own wrapper, is the pastry. It’s full of calories, most of them contained in the braided crust alone. So what can you do about that? Well, the answer is to take the pastry away – and replace it with the far healthier tortilla.  read more

Goodlife Mushroom and Spinach Kievs

Goodlife mushroom and spinach kievs

These Goodlife mushroom and spinach kievs are next on our list, and you could have predicted it if you read last week’s post – as we ate them at the same time as the Fishless Fingers that we tried!

The kievs certainly live up to their name as they are very, very garlicky! That’s a plus point for us as we love garlic but they could be a little too strong for others. There’s a base of quorn underneath the breadcrumbs, which is then coated in a very strong sauce. The mushroom flavour isn’t as strong, and in fact I would say that it is almost lost in the garlic.  read more
