We know, we know – we haven’t done one of our own recipes in a while. Truth be told, we have been filming and making things behind the scenes – it’s just been a case of life getting away from us. R has been working on several projects, including heading up London Runway as Chief Editor, while J recently changed jobs after coming back from a trip to Australia. Then this was all followed up by lots of events and some sponsored/gifted posts, which you’ve been seeing lately.
This week we thought we’d try a special offer that we heard of through Sweatcoin. Snact are a company putting vegan snacks together mostly through the power of fruit, and they prepared a snack pack for Sweatcoin users to purchase at a discounted rate.
This week we’ve got a lovely recipe with a bit of a twist! We love a good quiche but the pastry is just too fattening. In a bid to make it more healthy, the open quiche is rapidly becoming one of our go-to meals. This one is particularly interesting because of the inclusion of the apple. Paired up with strong cheddar and some Quorn vegetarian bacon, it’s a great choice for an autumn dish.
So lately I’ve been trying to make more desserts, and these baked apples from the Deliciously Ella book caught our eye. As they’re from the book I won’t repost the recipe here, but you can read it elsewhere if you wish.
What I will tell you is what I changed: instead of raisins and pecans, I used a dried fruit mix (like you would have in a mince pie) and skipped the nuts altogether. I also used normal sugar instead of coconut palm sugar.
This one is adapted from one of the recipes in Deliciously Ella’s first book. I felt like we needed to have something sweet and as low-calorie as possible for after dinner, so I whipped up a batch! I adjusted a few details, as you will see, but this apple and honey loaf is still suitable for veggies. It’s no longer gluten-free as I used plain flour, but that’s a simple substitution if you want to try it.
It’s that time of year again! After last year’s Christmas post, I couldn’t let the occasion go by without another round-up of our Very Vegetarian Christmas. We always eat such amazing food at this time of year – I’m in awe of my Mum’s menus – and this year was no exception. This time around I even helped out to make Christmas lunch, which means I can proudly say I helped make and then plated up the starter below…
