The Best Bread Ever

I called this one ‘The Best Bread Ever’ not just because it tastes pretty amazing, its also the easiest bread you will ever make. I always seem to have my troubles using yeast, I don’t know why but I rarely ever get it right, either I use to much or to little and it either won’t rise properly or the finished bake tastes like yeast which is not what you want. On top of all of that yeast is pretty hard…

An Ode to my Food Processor (and a Pizza Recipe)

I only agree with that in part, don’t get me wrong, I do love my blender and I think its a useful item. But there are certain things a blender won’t be able to do. Never mind the endless amounts of delicious nice creams, nut…

Vegan Summer Cake

It was my mums birthday a couple of days ago and I wanted to make her a proper layer cake. Usually layer cakes tend to be very heavy and not ideal for the summer, but this one is different. It has coconut cream instead of butter cream and a delicious and fluffy nectarine sponge. To give it that extra light and summery taste I added a bunch of berries and other seasonal fruits to the layers. You don’t have to be…

Miso Aubergine with Roasted Chickpea Rice | Vegan

I can’t lie, this recipe is a complete ‘cleaning out my fridge’ creation. But I’m really glad about how it came together though, a perfect and easy weekday dinner or even lunch on the go recipe. The fact that miso and aubergines go together pretty amazingly is no secret at all. But who would have thought that paprika roasted chickpeas would go so perfectly with that mix? The almost wilted fresh spinach just adds some extra goodness to it. This…

Not Pork Potstickers | Vegan

I don’t have a favorite dish because it’s just to hard decide on just one, but these dumplings are definitely up there. This is one of the less simple more fiddly recipes I have do admit. But you will get the hang of it quickly and boy, is it worth it. These guys make a perfect appetizer for any dinner party and they definitely won’t cease to impress people. The best thing is you can make them ahead of time, and…

Falafel are so simple to make, just toss everything into the food processor and done. Whether you want to bake or fry them is up to you.

They key to the most delicious homemade falafel is to use all fresh ingredients, especially herbs! You can even pre make the batter and…
