Quinoa and Feta Burger

This is a lovely light burger that works well for a lunch or dinner. It can be served with a salad or you could have a sweet potato on the side if you’re looking for something a bit more filling. Feta is optional, so if you’re avoiding dairy then you can leave it out and…

Roasted Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

It’s getting to that time of year when we want to curl up on our sofas under a blanket and fill up on warming foods. This soup will definitely hit the spot when you are feeling a bit autumnal. Roasting the butternut squash and the apples adds a lovely rich flavour and the sweetness of…

Spaghetti Squash and No-meat Balls

This is a super easy, super delicious alternative to pasta and makes a fantastic lunch or dinner. It’s squash season so I thought it would be nice to try something other than the usual butternut squash. The spaghetti squash looks very similar to butternut from the outside but varies from almost white in colour to…

Spicy Pumpkin Hummus

Hummus is a staple in my fridge – I absolutely love it! Such a great way to add protein and yumminess to your diet.  It’s always best to make it yourself so you know exactly what’s gone in to it. It also means you can tailor the flavours to whatever you fancy at the time…

Mixed Roast Nuts and Spelt Cereal

Pop a handful of mixed nuts in a dry frying pan and heat gently until they start to brown. Allow to cool and add to a bowl with a handful of spelt flakes/oats (these can also be gentle roasted if you prefer). Add as much non-dairy milk as you like and enjoy!

No-meatballs and Courgette Pasta

This makes a perfect mid-week meal option or even something you could whip up for a dinner party! Everything can be prepared in advance and heated through on the night. The balls themselves are rather like falafel in texture and are great eaten cold as well as warm so any leftovers can be taken for…

Easy Peasy Cashew Cheesy

I’ve found that sometimes I really struggle to get enough protein in my diet and this is something I’ve been trying to address.  Sometimes I also really crave that lovely savoury flavour you get from proper cheese.  I’ve tried various non-dairy cheeses available in the shops and they’ve always disappointed – tasting artificial and nothing…

Easy Hummus

Don’t know about you but I love hummus! It has become a regular addition to my meals. I have recently discovered a fantastic recipe that is really easy to follow and delicious. The result is a very smooth hummus that you can either eat as is or add things like, chopped olives or sun dried…

Mediterranean Millet Stuffed Courgette

I really love courgettes and have been looking for a new way to cook them. This is a fab way to use courgettes and makes a really satisfying meal. They’re also very pretty too and would make a brilliant dinner party meal. You can adjust the herbs to suit, so if you’re not a fan…

Stuffed Mini Peppers

When I saw these little peppers I just couldn’t resist stuffing them! They are just so cute, and lovely and sweet and I thought they’d be perfect stuffed full of yummy Mediterranean flavours. These peppers can be eaten warm or cold. They’d make a lovely starter on their own, or a satisfying main course served…

Easy Sunday Chocolate Pudding

After a lovely day out with friends and all the excitement of the London 2012 Olympics, I thought it would make my day extra special if I made this easy Sunday chocolate pudding as an after dinner treat. It is like an instant pudding only dairy, gluten and rubbish free! Full of natural ingredients makes…
