Veggie Living: Veggie FAQs

Having been vegetarian for my whole life, I get asked a lot of questions. Often the same ones over and over again, and sometimes even by the same people. This is my (slightly tongue-in-cheek) response to those FAQs. Believe me, I’ve had enough practice.  read more


Vine post: Loaded Mexican Muffins

This little recipe is so amazing, and I can’t tell you how much we loved eating it. We LOVE Mexican food anyway, so these Mexican muffins were definitely an idea we wanted to pursue. We had them for lunch, but you could easily make this a breakfast item or even serve it as part of a bigger meal at dinner. read more


Granose Falafel Mix

Recently we found some falafel mix that looked fairly easy to make, and decided to give it a try. After all, what could be better than almost-instant falafels? The chance to quickly create a delicious veggie burger alternative seems like a dream, and it could be used over and over again for different meals. In fact, you could even use the mix to make a bigger falafel burger rather than separating it into the balls. read more


Linda McCartney Pulled Pork Burgers

I don’t even know where to begin with these new pulled pork burgers from Linda McCartney. I honestly don’t.

So we picked these up in the supermarket, innocently enough. I’m always game to try a new product, especially if it’s in burger form. These looked pretty interesting, too, because I’ve obviously never eaten pulled pork. J has, and that’s an important thing to remember in a minute. So we grabbed them, put them in the oven, and waited to see how they would come out. read more


Vine Post: Banoffee Pie Jars

This week we have a sinfully good Vine to share with you. These banoffee pie jars were based on a Deliciously Ella recipe (that I won’t be reposting here), and they are SO GOOD. It’s hard to believe that such a small handful of ingredients can create this amazing taste, with a structure more akin to a cheesecake than a pie, all presented beautifully in a jar for good measure. read more


Where to Eat Veggie in Bournemouth

This post is a bit overdue – we stayed in Bournemouth for a weekend way, way back, and I’ve already shared a couple of posts from that short break. This Veggie Living post is here to let you know about the whole experience, however, and how easy it is to find veggie food in this great coastal town! read more


Vine Post: Baked Apples with Coconut Cream

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. read more


Recipe Review: Sweet Potato and Chickpea Burgers

It’s time to review a burger recipe again, and these sweet potato and chickpea burgers definitely caught my eye. I found them over on The Kitchn a while back and have been meaning to try them ever since, so it was time to get down to it. I love sweet potato and I love chickpeas, and I was even feeling adventurous enough to try the spicy dip. What could do go wrong? read more


Vine Post: Aubergine Bake

This recipe may not be the prettiest, but I can assure you that this aubergine bake tastes AMAZING. What’s more, it’s so low in calories you could eat it all day long and barely see the difference. 

I’m not always an aubergine fan, but there’s something about chopped tomatoes and cheese that makes everything better. Here’s the Vine so you can see how we made it, and be sure to scroll down for the recipe! read more
