Smoked Paprika Hummus – vegan, gluten-free deliciousness!

I think by now, most of us are well acquainted with regular hummus. Most of us love hummus because it fulfils that need for something creamy, tasty and filling. It has a sort of 'hard to describe' citrusy - tahini - garlic - chickpea fusion. It's the prefect plant-based food full of healthy essential fats, high [...]

Spicy Black Beans One Pot – Vegan Comfort Food with warming spices

Why does it seem that the least photogenic 'sloppy' food that I make always tastes the best!?! Today I am sharing a super feel good, 'Spicy Black Bean' comfort food recipe. This recipe excites me. It's one of those delightful, medleys of deliciousness. Where the flavours dance and entwine to become so much more than [...]

Creamy Coconut Cauliflower Soup with Nutmeg & Rosemary

This recipe is based on a delicious soup from my first book Trinity's Conscious Kitchen. We've enjoyed this in many forms over the years here at my house and it's always been popular on retreats with guests. I can't say that it is one particular ingredient that makes this soup special. It's a combination of [...]

EASY Apple & Blackberry Crumble (with gluten-free, vegan, oat topping)

Crumble must be the easiest baked dessert out there. All you need is fruit (in this recipe I am using blackberries and apples) and a crumbly, rustic 'lovingly-thrown-together' crumble topping. This was one of the first sort of desserts that I used to make when I was a girl. I remember back then I'd use [...]

Roast Beetroot Falafels – easy gluten-free vegan deliciousness

I've often though that if I owned a food van serving street food, then beetroot falafels would be top of my menu. They're traditionally deep fried (I grill or bake mine) and served in pita bread (making them an excellent grab n' go food). And here's the best part - they just happen to be [...]

Butternut Squash & Ginger Sauce (with rice noodles) 15 minute GF Vegan Dinner

As much as I adore spending lots of time in the kitchen and making an abundance of different dishes for guests, when it comes down to the day-to-day practicalities of my life, I tend be a bit partial to making dinner fast - usually within 15 minutes! There is a real art to making quick [...]

Vegan Raspberry & Apple Crumble Pie – Gluten-free and Healthy

Gluten-free pastry is a whole different experience to regular wheat or spelt based pastry. Personally, it help me to throw out any conventional ideas about pastry making, because the process for creating, is somewhat different (easier too). I've opted for a solid pastry base on this pie, along with a crumble topping. It can be [...]

Creamy Tomato & Rosemary Soup with Sweet Potato & Lentils

Ok here we go! The colder weather is on it's way here in the Northern Hemisphere. Out come the pans - warming soups are suddenly on the menu again. That nurturing, heart-warming feeling - ahhhhhh. The thing everyone loves about soup is that you can make them all in one pot. That means they are [...]

Raspberry & Apple Vanilla Breakfast Compote – with a hint of coconut sugar & ginger

Compote is actually really a dessert from medieval Europe. But times change and I adore making compote (which in this case is essentially, gently, stewed fruit, with a little je ne sais quois) for breakfast. I first started making this after I moved to Somerset in the South West of England, at which point every [...]

Vegan Cashew Lime Pesto – Cauliflower Salad – 2 ways

If you've been tuning in here for any length of time, you might have noticed that I am a bit of a fan of cauliflower salads. In this recipe, I am sharing a totally new variation, dressed with a delightful vegan pesto. I am using cashews, lime and basil as the main ingredients for the [...]
