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

Savoury pancakes with cheesy beans

Everybody loves pancakes, right? For some reason this week we just craved some savoury pancakes. It didn’t take long before a recipe came to mind, and these cheesy bean monsters were born. 

They are an absolute joy to behold, and pretty easy to make, too. It would be pretty easy to make these vegan – just choose vegan cheese – or gluten free – with an alternative type of flour. They’re very versatile and honestly won’t take long to get the hang of. And no, you don’t have to flip them in the air if you’re not feeling brave enough! read more

Quorn Fishless Fingers

Quorn fishless fingers

This is a review I have almost been dreading, because these Quorn fishless fingers were honestly one of the worst things I have ever eaten. I don’t know who came up with these, but they are completely grim on all levels. 

Apparently, I’m not the only one who thinks so, as several fellow vegetarians have commented the same to me. The thing is, most people who turn vegetarian really aren’t interested in fish. It seems that those who are remain pescatarian, for the most part at least. Fish is that thing you hold your breath while you walk past in the supermarket. It’s something other people eat. It’s gross and stinky. read more

When we found these little tortilla bowls in the supermarket, we decided they were perfect for turning our usual Mexican bowls into something a little more jaunty. We came up with these Mexican tortilla boats, based on the shape of the bowls and what they brought to mind! read more

Chocolate-covered strawberries

With the hot weather we’ve been enjoying a lighter kind of food – lots of salads and fruit. This week we thought we’d share a simple treat which is a lot of fun to eat – and a lot easier to make than you probably think! Chocolate-covered strawberries are so delicious, we just had to film them for you. read more

Video: Mexican Bowl

Mexican bowls

This week we’re sharing one of our all-time perennial favourites. The Mexican bowl is pretty much a staple of our diet: it’s easy to make, tastes fantastic, and is also very satisfying without being too unhealthy.

There’s a lot of components to the bowl that you can mix and match as you like. We always have home-made nachos to start with around the edge. This time we’ve added a black bean mix to the middle, but there are other possibilities too. read more
