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! I made a slice rather than cakes, but you can make cakes if you like. These are an occasional treat … Continue reading Dark chocolate rice crispy slice with a twist!
Before we went plant based, we loved mayonnaise. I used to make my own, but it's still not really a healthy food because of the amount of oil in it. We are now in love with this recipe. Whether you want to call it mayo or cashew cream is up to you. Some people will … Continue reading Vegan mayonnaise or cashew cream?
I'm not at Nutritionist or a Dietitian. I'm just a mum who wants the best for my family. I've spent the last 6 months of this journey to a plant based lifestyle doing lots of research. As a plant based or vegan mum, you face extra scrutiny about the health and development of your children. … Continue reading Where do you get your protein?
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 a bit quiet here, mostly due to lack of time to sit down and write. Life has been very busy with after school sports, camps, Stephen working lots and looking after our new puppy! We must be mad to add another baby into the mix but he's so cute and we love him … Continue reading Feeling plantastic!
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
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
I've been experimenting with different flours the last few weeks and I love rice flour. The best thing I've made is these pikelets. They're surprisingly light and don't taste of rice! Rice flour is just dry ground rice. It can be used to thicken soups and stews, as well as making crackers and pikelets. It's … Continue reading Rice flour apple and banana pikelets
