BANGERS & BEANS

BANGERS & BEANS

This started with me thinking I had nothing for dinner. After a quick search of my freezer and pantry I made this dish. Sausage, beans, shallots, and some herbs and you’re good to go. This was quick and easy for a simple dinner for two, […]

VEGAN BAKED BEANS

VEGAN BAKED BEANS

I went plant based for a few weeks and my challenge was to make dishes I usually enjoy vegan. Some were successful, some were not. These baked beans however are awesome. I love having baked beans with and egg and toast on weekends. Since I […]

MEJADRA

MEJADRA

I love warm comforting meals, especially when it comes in one pot. This has become one of my favourite rice dishes. It reminds me of the Indian biriyani with a different spice profile. Mejadra is a Middle Eastern dish made with rice, lentils, nuts, and […]

VEGAN BAKED BEANS

VEGAN BAKED BEANS

I make the best baked beans. It’s my favourite thing to have on Saturday morning with a fried egg and toast. I wanted to make a vegan version of my baked beans. I use the same flavours but swapped out the sausage for a plant-based […]

CREAMY RED LENTIL PASTA WITH MUSHROOMS & BASIL

CREAMY RED LENTIL PASTA WITH MUSHROOMS & BASIL

Red lentil pasta has become my go-to for quick and easy dinners. I buy ones in fun shapes and just grab whatever is in my fridge. But this particular dish was so good I had to share. Mushrooms and shallots in the creamy cheese sauce […]

BROCCOLINI LENTIL SALAD

BROCCOLINI LENTIL SALAD

I love beluga lentils, and I love broccolini. Put those two together and scatter with chilies and I’m happy. I made this for my friend’s birthday. She has become a vegan so my challenge this year was to make an exciting, interesting, and delicious dinner. […]

POTATO LENTIL SALAD

POTATO LENTIL SALAD

We ordered a vegan lunch at work and it came with a potato salad. I was interested to see how they would make it as potato salads are defiantly not vegan with all the mayo and eggs that make the sauce. This one came with […]

RED LENTIL PASTA WITH SAUSAGE

RED LENTIL PASTA WITH SAUSAGE

I’ve never been a fan of pasta alternatives, but now that there is more of a demand for them, I have found that there are some really good ones on the market. When it comes to red lentils, I only eat them in a soup […]

BEET HUMMUS

BEET HUMMUS

I have a friend who is vegan and when she visits I usually have some kind of hummus and pita chips available for us to snack on. I bought a beetroot hummus from the store and it wasn’t that great. It was sweet and lacked […]

FRITTO MISTO WITH LEMON ROSEMARY DIP

FRITTO MISTO WITH LEMON ROSEMARY DIP

This is such a beautiful dish, and very flavourful. Veggies fried in rosemary oil with a lemon rosemary mayo is a great dish to enjoy in the summer. You can use all sorts of vegetables, but I really like the zucchinis and cauliflower. The chickpeas […]
