5-Ingredient Almond Energy Bars

What’s up people. Happy Saturday. I hadn’t planned on cooking anything today but whilst digging around the cupboard I found an unopened packet of almonds waiting to be eaten. I also had some dates, cranberries and coconut ready to go, so boom – these delicious almond energy bars were born. A small handful of almonds… Continue reading

Where do Vegans get their Protein?

More often then than not it’s the first thing people want to know when they find out I don’t eat animal products. In my experience, people seem genuinely concerned when asking where vegans get their protein from,  which highlights how misinformed about protein the average person has become these days. So I thought it would… Continue reading

Cashew, Cranberry and Coconut Balls

We’ve got this book-borrowing-bookshelf set up in the canteen at work, where the idea is that you can take any book you want home as long as you replace it with a book of your own. Pretty cool idea. I was having a dig through the other day and found this great looking book of… Continue reading

Ultimate Scrambled Ackee Breakfast

Growing up with a Guyanese mum, I was never introduced to Ackee as a child. The Guyanese don’t each much Ackee and often consider it an inedible fruit. You’re more likely to find ackee being cooked in Jamaica (of course), in one of the other Carribean islands or in its native West Africa. It wasn’t… Continue reading

Explorations into Mac n Cheese – Part 2 (the lumpy one)

Here we go then. Second attempt at making some proper vegan mac n cheese. In part one I tried to stick as closely to my old (non-vegan) mac n cheese recipe as possible, simply replacing the dairy ingredients with non-dairy substitutes. It was OK but only a starting point. Today I’ve followed a recipe that… Continue reading
