Sweet potato spinach and pesto bake

As a result of this blog, I’m trying to cook foods and create recipes that are different to what I’m used to, which is why this recipe is for a bake! I feel like bakes are a super cosy and autumnal dish, so I’ll definitely […]

Black rice with roasted veg, cashews and almonds

Black rice with roasted veg, cashews and almonds

Cooking veg in the oven is a new favourite of mine – I love the way it goes slightly charred and crispy, you can’t really get that effect through any other cooking method other than barbecuing… and I am in no way oblivious to the […]

Simple Soups Series part 3 | Mexican black bean soup

We are now into the third week of the simple soups series and I can happily say I am well and truly enjoying my fair share of soup this season. There is no better food to accompany to steadily approaching colder weather – it’s warm, […]

Simple Soup Series part 1 / Spiced lentil soup

It’s now October. We are fully into autumn and what better way to spend it than by snuggling up inside under a blanket with a warming bowl of soup. In order to aid my own, and perhaps yours too, autumnal hygge requirements, I’m starting a […]

Fig season / making damn good porridge

Fig season / making damn good porridge

It’s fig season. It’s also getting slightly colder – especially in the mornings and I would say damn this September weather, but I can’t help it be my guilty pleasure as it’s a window into the beauty that is autumn. Country walks, fallen leaves, Halloween, […]

An English Breakfast vegan style…

An English Breakfast vegan style…

An English breakfast is a classic… there are some days you just can’t beat it, and although I often felt like typical English breakfasts are based quite heavily on animal foods, after exploring and experimenting a little bit I realised this doesn’t have to be […]
