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
I love sundays. We always have a family outing in the mornings; today was spent at the beach. While the toddlers slept this afternoon, I got to cooking. It was a mega cook up for next week's lunches. I made: 1. crispy baked chick peas. They marinated for 2 days in braggs liquid seasoning, pure … Continue reading Sunday Funday
I've been making this salad for a few years now and it never fails to please. Its filling, nourishing, colorful and delicious! You can have it as a side or a main and your friends will be mighty impressed when you turn up for the pot luck with this. Using seasonal veggies, you can mix … Continue reading Warm Quinoa Salad
I'll keep this brief as I know you just want the recipe! A few things to remember. * it is plant based so there is no added oil, no dairy, no refined sugar and no refined flours * it won't taste exactly like the one filled with the above ingredients; it's better! The recipe makes … Continue reading Peanut butter caramel slice
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 have so many lemons, I thought it would be nice to use them in a bliss ball. I've tried a lemon cheesecake version from a packet and I didn't really like it. I like a very lemony flavour so I used the zest as well as the juice. I used sunflower seeds as they … Continue reading Lemon bliss balls
These pancakes are so quick and easy to make, my 11 yr old can make his own in no time! Buckwheat flour is a great alternative if you're gluten free or if you just want something different. The flour soaks up a lot of liquid and binds really well, so there is no need to … Continue reading Banana & Buckwheat Pancakes
I had been dreaming of rice crispy cakes for a few days before I finally made these. They're so simple and fun to eat; perfect for a snack, party food or dessert for all ages!

As you probably know by now, I bake all the lunchbox items and we love muffins! These ones are pretty simple, a bit decadent and very yummy. I've used Whittakers 72% cocoa dark Ghana instead of chocolate chips. Only because I actually bought it to eat a few weeks ago and I forgot about it. … Continue reading Banana & dark chocolate muffins
I tried these muffins last week and they didn't rise properly, as I opened the oven door too early or so I thought. After another test batch, I've realized that almond meal doesn't allow muffins to rise and stay risen once they're out of the oven. So these are not your typical 3inches tall muffins. … Continue reading Banana & blueberry muffins
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!
We all loved the sweet version of these pikelets that I made last week, I thought I'd try a savoury one. Peas and sweetcorn are a great match because they cook really quickly from frozen and my kids love them. I froze a batch of these for the lunchboxes and they defrosted really well. I … Continue reading Rice flour pea & sweetcorn pikelets
