Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

I haven’t planned to make a bunch of vegan recipes, but I had the right ingredients lying around that needed using up. Plus, it’s always fun making cookies! The other beauty of this recipe is that it can all be made in one bowl, which makes for much easier clean up. You can change the…

Vegan Dragonfruit and Raspberry Ice Cream

No-churn ice cream means you can make your own ice cream without an ice cream maker. When I had an abundance of dragonfruit, I needed new ideas of how to use it. You need to leave the can of coconut milk or cream in the fridge overnight, so that it can be whipped into an…

Ratatouille

I don’t often eat ratatouille, but it is such a simple dish that can be made rustic or elegant depending on the presentation. Plus, it can be made with a variety of vegetables, which makes it a flexible recipe too. I used my mandolin to slice all of my vegetables to equal thickness. I also…

Green Pearl Barley Risotto

The world is currently in turmoil, and there is a seismic shift occurring right now. I don’t know why the murder of George Floyd is the straw that broke the camel’s back, because I know the Black people have been protesting against discrimination by the police for decades. But, for some reason, something has clicked….

Vegan Choc Chip Pumpkin Loaf

I never really understood the American’s love for pumpkin-based desserts. I couldn’t see the appeal. However, I will raise my hand up and say that I was judging a book by it’s cover. Adding pumpkin makes a baked good incredibly moist, and the spices added (those normally associated with pumpkin-based desserts) add such a great…

Rainbow Chard and Mushroom Quiche

It’s time for another recipe using vegetables from EatFresh! What can I say, I’ve been getting creative with all of the organic veggies that I receive. To be honest, the bag is meant to feed a household of 3 or 4 people for 5 days (give or take), so it feeds me for longer than…

Chard & Ricotta Crumble

I’ve been really enjoying my veggie subscription bag from EatFresh, and I’ve been working on a bunch of recipes using what I get sent each week. When I first received chard in my veggie bag, I was at a loss as to what to do. I’d eaten it, but I’d never cooked with it before….

Okra Polenta Fritters

I had a friend leave Hong Kong a few months ago, and was given all of her cooking supplies – including 800 grams of polenta. So I’ve been finding ways to use it, as it’s not something I normally have at home. Given the need to social distance, and reduce our contact with others as…
