Potatoes are one of my favourite vegetables. They so versatile, but also very filling and contain vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin A, fibre, potassium, magnesium and folate (vitamin B9]. We love hashbrowns, especially the crunchy bits on the outside. They go with anything and you can eat them anytime! In my quest to cook them … Continue reading Crispy Hashbrowns
Tofu; you either love it or hate it! We love it, but it hasn't always been that way. We first tried it in an Asian style soup and it was simply cubed and dropped into the broth for a few minutes before it was served. It really didn't taste of anything, and the texture was … Continue reading Crispy Oven Baked Tofu

We had spent the morning at the farmers market and museum with all the kids. We'd had a big breakfast, so didn't need any morning tea but on the drive home I was dreaming of samosas. I just love the mix of spicy potatoes and peas, but I don't love the deep fried pastry. By … Continue reading Potato curry roll

I've been wanting to create a great sausage roll recipe and after a few attempts, here it is. I can't take full credit though as I did get inspiration from a lovely lady on a vegan Facebook group I'm in called 'what kiwi vegans eat'. We love sausage rolls, who doesn't? The crispy, crumbly pastry … Continue reading Vegan sausage rolls!
When we went plantbased, one of the things we knew we'd miss was a burger. We had burger night once a week; it was a tradition! This recipe was inspired by High carb Hannah. We tried her recipe and enjoyed it but there just wasn't enough flavour for us. We've tried beetroot burgers which are … Continue reading The best chickpea & mushroom burger ever!!
This creamy oil free curry has gone down really well. Its spicy, salty, creamy and sweet with some big punchy flavours. It's very filling and for the meat eaters out there, the mushrooms give it that meaty kind of texture. The first time I made it, I intended on serving it with brown rice but … Continue reading Chickpea, kumera and mushroom curry
