Cashew Nut and Vegetable Egg Fried Rice

I made this for dinner last night and wondered whether I was being a bit boring. No! I’d forgotten how tasty this recipe is. Simple and satisfying with plenty of protein from the nuts and egg. You can use your imagination with the vegetables and it can be a good...
Easy Vegetable Chowder

Easy Vegetable Chowder

We’ve been in a bit of a soup rut lately. A nice rut full of lentils and leek and chickpea soup but it suddenly it felt like time for a change. My partner reminded me about chowder which I haven’t made for probably a few years. This is adapted from one of...
Buckwheat And Aubergine Bake

Buckwheat And Aubergine Bake

It’s hard to believe that I haven’t published a new recipe on here since July last year! I haven’t forgotten about Cheese & Chickpeas at all: I’ve still been cooking and adding recipes in draft posts and taking pictures but I have been...
Spicy Roast Cauliflower And Aubergine Quinoa

Spicy Roast Cauliflower And Aubergine Quinoa

Quinoa has been a very fashionable grain for a few years now but it’s taken me a while to really embrace it. It’s a great ingredient to include in a vegetarian or vegan diet because it’s one of the few plant sources of ‘complete’ protein,...
Using Overripe Bananas: Banana And Walnut Loaf

Using Overripe Bananas: Banana And Walnut Loaf

I’m really fussy about the ripeness of my bananas. I don’t like them underripe when they stick to your teeth a bit and I don’t like them as soon as they start to get spotty and taste too banana-ey. What a fusspot! This leaves me with a very small...

If you’ve read my blog from the beginning you’ll know that I love a self-catering holiday in the UK. It’s not that I don’t enjoy travelling and seeing the world but I do like to pack up the car and set off with my partner and dogs for a week...
Vegan Supper Club At The Broadfield Sheffield

Vegan Supper Club At The Broadfield Sheffield

When we booked the Vegan Supper Club at The Broadfield in Sheffield it seemed ages off but it finally arrived. We’d originally tried to book for the Tuesday evening but that sold out in no time at all so they put on a second event on Wednesday evening which they...
Lucy’s Vegetarian Paella

Lucy’s Vegetarian Paella

I don’t usually name my recipes after me but calling this “Lucy’s” vegetarian paella is my acknowledgement that this is in no way an authentic recipe and is my interpretation of a paella-like dish.¬† It was inspired by a recent visit to Spain...
Tomato And Halloumi Salad

Tomato And Halloumi Salad

I haven’t blogged as frequently over the past couple of weeks because I’ve been launching a new business with a friend of mine (it’s an online shop,¬†Davies & Maker, selling lighting and lovely homewares if you want to check it out) and then last...
