What do you want from a bolognese recipe? It’s still very much a staple meal at home, so I was desperate (as part of Veganuary) to come up with my own plant-based version that is just as rich and comforting as the meaty version. I think I’ve nailed it.
So this is my first blog post in a while, soz guys. I’ve been a bit preoccupied. Christmas is crazy, isn’t it? But so worth it, as I think I actually just had the best Christmas ever.
But after alllllll the turkey, the pigs in blankets, the stodgy leftovers, I needed something spicy and full of veg. So I looked back to my time in Thailand as a trusty source of inspiration. And it didn’t fail me… Continue reading “RECIPE | Curry Noodle Soup (Khao Soi)”

This is a super easy, slightly spicy veggie brunch recipe you can rustle up any day of the week.
I’ve been eating a lot less meat over the past few of months. Mainly because I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could eat less meat. But I am actually now really enjoying eating less meat. I’ve always been a fan of veggie food and eating more veg and less meat actually helps me stay healthy. It’s also a lot cheaper and I feel better for it. So, so far, so good!

Buddha bowl is a weird term. Basically, it’s a salad.
It has proteins, vegetables and grains. Much like many salads.
I think the main difference is that they’re more Instagrammable and Pinnable than an average salad.
So, I thought I’d have a go at one, using some basic ingredients I already had in the fridge and store cupboard. Continue reading “Easy Couscous ‘Buddha Bowls’”
When I told Mum I was making curry for dinner, it’s safe to say she was looking forward to it. Naturally, she wanted to know what kind of curry I was rustling up. “Thai, Massaman curry,” I told her.
As I began delving into more detail about what’s involved and where I learnt the recipe, she stopped me and asked, “what meat are you putting in it?”
Hummus is a really easy, simple recipe which can be knocked together in no time based mainly on ingredients you can always keep in the cupboard. I like my hummus to be lemony, garlicky and with a hint of warmth from the cumin. There are loads of variations you can experiment with but this one seems to be a real crowd pleaser. It makes enough for about 6 people as a starter, or more as part of a party selection. This weekend I made it with my Thyme & Tabasco Sausage Rolls for a few friends and it went down a treat.
What you need:
- 2 x 400g tins of chickpeas (reserve the liquid, plus a few chickpeas for topping)
- 3 tbsp. tahini
- 3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
- 1 tsp. crushed sea salt
- 6 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- The juice of 2 large lemons
- 1 tsp. cumin
- A pinch of paprika for dusting
- Greek basil (for topping)
- Extra virgin olive oil (for drizzling, optional)
What to do:
- Get the bowl-blade option ready on your food processor. Rinse the chickpeas in cold water and add to the bowl. Next, add the tahini, garlic, salt, lemon juice, cumin and a few tablespoons of the reserved liquid from the tinned chickpeas. Turn on the food processor and slowly pour in the olive oil as everything combines.
- When the mixture is fully combined, tip it into a serving dish. Drizzle with some more extra virgin olive oil and decorate with a few whole chickpeas. Sprinkle with paprika and finely chopped Greek basil leaves for decoration.
