Let it be said that I am not a fan of Valentine’s day as a general rule but I am a fan of any excuse to eat decadent chocolate based treats! Not one to miss an opportunity I got busy in the kitchen today and the results are heavenly. These little delights are squidgy, rich, slightly addictive and 100% plant based. So if you fancy making sweets for your sweet this valentines day it couldn’t be easier.
The first post of 2016 better be good right? Well it is, it’s downright excellent. Let me introduce you to a superb muffin, the texture is light and moist the flavour is subtle and not too sweet. They rise well and develop a delicious crisp crumb, oh and they are 100% vegan.
This delicious veggie packed version of minestrone soup is just what you need to ward off the inevitable seasonal colds. Its 100% vegan, packed with flavour and a breeze to make.
Practicing the ‘art of moderation’ means enjoying a wide range of foods; if you find yourself stuck in a bit of a food rut shake things up with some new flavours, textures or even foods you have never tried before. Need inspiration? check out this recipe for ‘Chipotle Pearl Barley Salad’, it is packed with flavour and a whole lot of veggies too. It can be eaten warm or cold and makes a great lunchbox filler so there really is no excuse not to give it a try!
I am constantly in search of tasty wholesome snacks to eat on the go and in a world of pre packaged convenience food I am too often disappointed. I almost always end up buying a cereal bar to curb my sugar cravings and with the hope it will fill me up more than chocolate. The problem here is the processed cereal bar is likely to be made with additives, preservatives and a little bit more sugar than I had bargained for so I somehow feel a bit cheated. The answer to my snacking dilemma? Make some!
