Today I’m sharing the recipe for a delicious plant-based curry that is filled with sunshine colour. The stars of this dish are butternut squash and red pepper, which are roasted in warming spices to bring a richness and depth of flavour. The sauce is coconut based, adding the touch of sweetness and creaminess that we associate with Sri Lankan curries. I’ve kept the recipe mild enough to suit all family members, but feel free to crank up the heat by adding some fresh chilli.Continue reading “Sunny Sri Lankan Curry (Vegan)”
In today’s post, I’m sharing the recipe for a delicious plant-based alternative to halloumi. Simple to prepare, this Tofu ‘Halloumi’ is highly versatile. We love to add it to Greek-style salads, sandwiches, pittas, wraps and mezze platters.Continue reading “Tofu ‘Halloumi’”
Happy New Year everyone! So here we are, in the year 2020. Wow! When I was little, 2020 seemed so futuristic. I imagined we would all be wearing shiny silver suits and flying around on hover boards 😂 Well, the reality hasn’t matched up with my predictions, but life on planet Earth sure feels a bit crazy right now.
And when things start to feel a bit too crazy in the big wide world, I find it helpful to focus on the things that I can personally do (however small) to help bring about positive change. This month, I am supporting people that are giving Veganuary a try, whether they have pledged to go full vegan for the month or are dipping their toes into the world of plant-based eating. It feels an absolute honour to be part of a person’s journey as they start to make the transition towards this more planet, animal and human health-friendly lifestyle 💚Continue reading “Bit of the Good Stuff’s Gourmet Goa Burger & Veganuary!”
I’m so excited to be sharing today’s recipe with you… it’s for a creamy vegan Mac and Cheese that’s really simple and quick to make. When I first made the sauce, I was amazed at how good it tasted, especially considering how basic the ingredients are. I had a hard time stopping myself from spooning the whole lot into my mouth straight from the blender!
And not only is it delicious, but it’s healthy too! 🌟 For me, this Mac and Cheese is comfort food at its finest. It’s been a winner with my family and I hope you enjoy it too!Continue reading “Creamy Vegan Mac and Cheese”
When it comes to Christmas dinner, for me, nothing can beat a nut loaf served with a big pile of roasted veggies and onion gravy ♥
My mum made me my first nut roast for Christmas when I was 12 and it was by far the best Christmas dinner I’d ever had! In contrast to turkey (which I’d always found pretty bland), the nut roast was packed with beautiful flavours and textures. Since then, I’ve always chosen to have nut loaf as the centre piece of my Christmas dinner… and for many years now, my mum has chosen it over turkey too!!
In fact, pretty much everyone I know loves a nut roast, regardless of whether they’re vegetarian, vegan or not, so this is a great meal to serve to friends and family over the Christmas holidays, or as a special Sunday roast dinner.Continue reading “Cranberry-Glazed Nut Loaf”
This season calls for hearty comfort foods, and today’s recipe sure does fit the bill. Packed full of beautiful warming flavours, colours and textures, this Six Bean Chilli is a feast for the eyes and the belly. It’s really easy to make and super cheap too. I calculated that it cost me £3.03, which works out at just 78p per portion!
We love to serve it with chunks of fluffy home-made corn bread which bake in the oven while the chilli is simmering (the recipe is on p54 of the Bit of the Good Stuff cookbook). It’s so good!! The chilli is also delicious served with brown or wild rice or as a topping for jacket potatoes.
