Don’t you just love getting two of your favourite things in the whole wide world and combining them together? It’s like chocolate and orange or roasties and mustard or peanut butter and jam. Some things were just meant to belong together. This is one of those times. I am one huge Christmas fan and the second September (yes I’m that Christmas crazy) comes around I am all over the Christmas recipes trying out all the wonderful different combos out there. I think you’ll all agree that I struck gold with this one. I mean mincepie flavoured doughnuts!!! Why had I not thought of that before? They really are as delicious as they sound. (Do you hear the sound of tooting trumpets?) Apologies for the shameless patting oneself on the back but I am so proud of this recipe and I can not wait to hear what you guys think of it too! Let us know what fantastic Christmas mash-ups you guys have tried. Sprout ice cream or roast potato sandwiches maybe? Actually, I could totally eat a roast potato sandwich but that can just be our little secret right? See you soon friends. Help us out! If you have any […]
There is nothing I love more than a beautiful bowl of comfort food at this time of year. There is just something about scooping from a steamy bowl and knowing your body is being nourished from the delicious goodness inside. Those of you who know me know that my favourite meal in the world is our lemon kale pasta broth but I have to tell you, my friends, that this dish has rivalled it. Boasting the same nutritional benefits and offering the ‘hug in a bowl’ effect I can now proudly say that I have two favourite dishes. On to the recipe… If you’re feeling run down, need a hug or simply fancy a quick easy supper then let this be your go-to. It will warm the cockles of your heart.
Doughnuts made of vegetables I hear you cry?! It’s crazy, but it’s true! These bad boys have been inspired by a Forks Over Knives recipe which you can find here. They have been adapted to fit even more wonderful veggies in and you will not believe how sticky and delicious they are. It’s about this time of year when our bodies crave the more fulfilling of recipes. Warm stews and roast dinners. Surrounded by so much confection in the shops and on the TV it’s no wonder that we begin to crave the naughty sweet stuff too, am I right? Well, this recipe is the best of both worlds. Your body will be nourished by all of the wonderful whole plant foods and yet your taste buds will be fooled into thinking that all their Christmases have come at once! Oil, egg, refined sugar and dairy free these scrumptious little rings are the treats that keep on giving. Enjoy!! You will need a mini doughnut mould. Here is a link to our sweet potato and date puree recipe I really hope you enjoy these fabulous doughnuts as much as my family has. Stay healthy beautiful people! Help us out! If […]
Fed up with nut roasts? Tofurkey not floating your boat? This my friends is the ultimate vegan Christmas centrepiece and I am beyond excited to share it with you. This will be our second vegan Christmas and I am literally bouncing off the walls with excitement. Not only do I love all things Christmas and therefore I’m in a heightened state of excitement most of November (Note to self…I must try to not put up my tree until December!) anyway but I have been practising this recipe now for some time and it is truly yummy scrummy. Both the kids love it which is a mega win and it feels super special to have something so lovely as the main part of the meal. You can make this beauty ahead and freeze before baking which will save you time on the day. Yay! Simply cook from frozen and a mere 30 minutes later you will be serving up a golden, buttery pastry wreath full of wholesome nutrition to wow your guests. Winner, winner, vegan dinner! Enjoy… Have a fabulous Christmas Fam. Thank you for considering a cruelty free Christmas meal. You have loving hearts for which we are grateful. This […]
