You guys! I’ve been tinkering with different vegan cheese recipes for a good two years now (there have been many mishaps), so I’m thrilled to share with you one that is finally what I imagined it to be.
Somewhere between cream cheese and semi-melted cheddar, this tangy spreadable cashew cheese is just too good to stop eating. I can’t really describe its tastiness in terms of a specific other cheese, because, well, I can’t remember any more what they taste like. But it does really remind me of something – maybe you can tell me what when you try it?
But I can tell you that this cheese is:
- thick; and
- rich and almost fancy-cheese in flavour.
Four ingredients, 20 minutes, and a whole lot of intense flavour: Shiitake Bacon is the salty, crispy, easy-to-make plant-based meat replacement you didn’t even know you needed. But once you try it, trust me, there’ll be no going back.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I love Tempeh Bacon (and its tofu equivalent), but when I heard a rumour of shiitake bacon being a thing, I wanted to see how my marinade recipe worked on mushrooms. Let’s just say, since the first time I tried it, we’ve been eating shiitake bacon about twice a week (and that’s me holding back!) Continue reading
Just look at those delicious pots of decadent chocolate goodness! Can you believe they’re vegan?
Not only are they vegan, but they take less than 10 minutes to make and are unbelievably good. This is the recipe to fool your non-vegan dinner guests, and have them wondering what your magical secret is… Continue reading
It’s been a little quiet around here, so apologies for the radio silence (or sizzle, in the case of recipes). You see, I’ve been off on a quest of sorts – not so much finding myself, but making plans for what it is I’m doing. Laying what will hopefully be some exciting foundations for change.
In any case, I hope this delicious lentil one-pot will make up for my absence. It’s the simple, fuss-free, quick and very tasty meal that you need when time (or inclination) is short; but you don’t want to compromise on what goes on your plate. Although simple, this recipe still manages to pack in a hearty helping of Mediterranean flavour, and peppery lentil goodness. Continue reading
Are you a savoury-snack fiend, too? I often find myself rustling around in the cupboards for something to nibble on, but can never quite put my finger on what it is exactly I think I’m going to find.
Yes, I love olives, hummus, nuts and all the other usual suspects, but I’ve had a nagging feeling for absolutely ages that I could come up with something different. Something that’s healthy, yet hits all the savoury notes, and can be eaten in lots of different ways.
And then I hit on the idea of Savoury Granola! Continue reading
