Festive Habanero Sauce

I’ve had a few dried Habanero chilis in my cupboard for a while that I picked up at a chili festival. And with all the apples in my back garden at the moment, i though now was the time for a sweet hot festive sauce. Ingredients 2 red onions 3 garlic cloves 3 cooking apples…

This is a super quick recipe packed full of flavor.   Ingredients: 1 Fennel 1 Aubergine 1 Chilli Half a lemon…

Vegan Fish Pie

  We first found smoked tofu on holiday in Hungary where we used it to replace bacon in a Hungarian goulash. We weren’t sure if we would find it back in the UK but after a bit of searching we found it in Holland and Barrett. The other day I was delighted to find that they are now…

Creamy sausage pasta

We’ve just got back to the UK and were pleasantly surprised to find that Tesco now have even more vegan options. The first thing we saw was Oatly creme fraiche and we had to buy it. Then to rack our brains about what we could use it in: we decided to veganise my sister’s classic…

Butter bean dip

We’ve worked our way around New Zealand in a tent and are spending are last few weeks in a house. This means we have a kitchen and all our old gadgets. With this in mind we decided to get the blender out and make a dip. Our first thought was to whip up a houmous but…

Potato Bake

We are currently on the road traveling around the north island of New Zealand. We will be back in the UK in 6 months but in the mean time we will be blogging some food that we make along the way. This is one we made on a gas barbecue  with a lid that allowed…

Chipotle Sauce

We love Mexican food and the best bit is being able to smother it in hot sauce. I think I probably discovered chipotle sauce at Mission Burrito and I’ve been hooked since then. The hardest part of making this recipe was getting hold of the chillies. I bought mine from the Chilli Hut stall in…

Braised Lentils

Braised lentils make a great mince substitute. It can be time consuming to make so we tend to make up a big batch and seperate them into portions to freeze. The batch in the picture above is using Puy Lentils but  Lentilles Vertes are just as good and less expensive. Ingredients 1 Onion diced 2…

Lentil Lasagne
