Plant recipe: BBQ wings

I have to admit, I didn’t have high expectations for this recipe, especially since they are made from cauliflower. When I think of cauliflower, I think of a very bland taste. I’m not the biggest cauliflower fan as you can probably tell, but making them this way has changed that! They couldn’t have come out nicer in my opinion. The batter was delicious, not too much BBQ, not too spicy, but full of flavour. I will be making these a lot more for sure. They would be perfect for a party as they look really impressive. At a quick glance, you would almost think they are chicken wings. They’re a good meat free alternative snack.

Plant Recipe: Peanut Chocolate Chip Cookies

IMAG1269

I made these when I got bored last night, they were super easy to make and I just happened to have all the ingredients lying around in my kitchen. They only take 15 minutes of prep time and 15 minutes in the oven. As there is very little sugar ingredients in them, they are not overly sweet like regular cookies. They have a more neutral biscuit taste. They are not too nutty either considering the amount of nut based ingredients I used. They consistency came out perfectly, once they cooled they don’t go too crispy or hard which is what I liked most about them. They were a slightly crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.

Makes around 9 average sized cookies.

P.S the dark bits in the picture are chocolate chips, not burnt bits 😉 just in case you we’re thinking that..

These crispy Tofu Strips with some Sweet chilli dipping sauce are a perfect snack for any occasion. They also make a great addition to a salad. Or you could add them to a wrap with greens or crunchy lettuce and veggies.

I often get the question as a new vegan, but.. where do you get your protein from? Tofu is a good source of protein and contains all eight essential amino acids. It is also an excellent source of iron and calcium and the minerals manganese, selenium and phosphorous. In addition, tofu is a good source of magnesium, copper, zinc and vitamin B1.

Plant recipe: 5 Minute Cookie Dough Recipe

IMAG0521When the weekend rolls around I always want to make something sweet. Mostly because I have the time as I’m off. 😉 This weekend I wanted to use up some food that was laying around in my press for awhile. I had to think a little bit of how I could use certain foods together. I had the majority of the ingredients for this  recipe already, chickpeas, oats, vanilla, pb2 and water of course. The only thing I had to run out and get was some fresh medjool dates from the local market and a nice dark chocolate for the chocolate chips and I was ready to make some delicious cookie dough! I just wish I had a better blender or food processor though so I could of gotten a smoother texture. My little blender just wasn’t able  to do that for me sadly. I was left with a mix that wasn’t as smooth as I would of liked but it still tasted great.  Continue reading

Plant recipe: Dairy-free no-bake CARAMEL SLICES

IMAG0038

I think these caramel slices are my favourite dessert recipe I’ve made to date. Not as quick to make as my other recipes but DEFINITELY worth the effort. The caramel sauce made from dates, almond butter and coconut oil couldn’t have tasted any better. It really tasted like real caramel. These slices are made from only raw ingredients and require no baking what so ever. They are so tasty, I have to resist eating them all at once.  Continue reading
