Spiced Vegan Chocolate Mousse Recipe

A few weeks ago Shivani Vora, friend and renowned journalist, invited me to a dessert tasting by a company called Vegan Divas. Since I heard the word ‘vegan’ I assumed that I wouldn’t be eating all that much. After all, how were desserts like chocolate mousse going to provide aeration with the absence of whipped eggs and where would that creamy mouth feel come from, that so indulgently coats the mouth, without cream?

One thing you should probably know about me is that I’m a bit of a Nigella Lawson fan. Granted she’s not vegan and my fascination with her is probably baffling to most of my vegan followers, but I really can’t help it. Ever since her first program that aired on TV, I’ve been besotted by the divine Ms. Lawson and her fat laden, can’t-be-good-for-your-heart, food.

You would think that since becoming vegan my interest would have somewhat dissipated. Nope, I still frequently visit her website, I’m still inspired by much of what she makes. See, what you probably don’t realize is that Nigella’s recipes are very easily Veganized Read More

Curried Cauliflower and Carrot Soup Recipe

cauliflower and carrot soup

Soups are my go-to meal. If in doubt, I get the blender out and know that a nutritious, delicious meal is a mere blitz away. Well, there may be a little more involved than blitzing some vegetables, but none the less it remains a fairly painless process. I welcome meals that require little to no effort but still deliver when it comes to flavor and soups do this better than any dish I know of. Read More

Glazed Apple Muffins Recipe

I was tempted to give these muffins a ridiculously long winded name, as Glazed Apple Muffins doesn’t really cut it. Containing a multitude of random ingredients (my attempt at balancing the bad with good) these muffins are, shall we say, interesting?

With not one overriding flavor (even with chunks of delicious apple), they’re an incredibly satisfying snack that remain moist for days when stored in an airtight container Read More

Vegan Oatjacks Recipe

Oats are my not-so-new obsession. I love them in smoothies, I swoon over overnight oats, and granola just plain makes me happy. Could this most basic of ingredients get any better? I mean, what can’t they do?

They also happen to taste pretty fantastic and they really do set you up for the day without making you feel sluggish or allowing the hunger monster to attack any sooner than lunch.

I’ve named these oatjacks because they’re similar to but not quite of the flap (jack) variety and they are comprised of oats. Read More

Ten Minute Broccoli Soup Recipe

Broccoli is one of those vegetables you associate with childhood. Most kids hate it, turn their noses up and push it to the one side but not me. I’ve come to the conclusion I was a rather strange child – when everyone else was into New Kids On The Block I was listening to Neil Sedaka, Elvis Costello, and Sam Cooke. Strangely, I also happened to love broccoli. It was my absolute favorite part of Sunday dinner.
