Vegan Spanish Potato Omelette – Tortilla de Patatas

Hey dear friends! Today, I am delighted to be sharing one of personal favourite recipes with you – Spanish Omelette (Tortilla de Patatas). This is no ordinary omelette, however, as it’s 100% plant-based!! Yep, not a single egg in sight. In my pre-vegan days, Spanish Tortilla was a favourite comfort food of mine, but I love this vegan version even more. Not only is it delicious, it’s cruelty-free (no hens or chicks are harmed in the making of this omelette) AND healthier than the traditional version. It’s lower in fat, contains zero cholesterol, and is a rich source of plant proteins, B vitamins, vitamin C, and an array of minerals including potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron.

Healthy, tasty AND cruelty-free. A winner all round!

Vietnamese Spring Rolls (Vegan Style!) with Peanut Dipping Sauce + Step-by-Step Guide on How to Roll Rice Papers

I absolutely love this time of year, with the trees full of blossom and the wisteria out in flower. Not only does it look stunning, but it smells glorious too! Here in Bath, the weather is finally starting to warm up and we’ve actually managed a few meals in the garden this past week. Our dinners have definitely shifted to lighter dishes, and I’m looking forward to sharing some of our favourites over the coming weeks.

The rolls are a vegan twist on the classic Vietnamese spring roll. Instead of meat or prawns, the rolls are filled with a rainbow of fresh veggies, making them both visually beautiful and delicious. Continue reading

Roasted Tenderstem, Red Pepper and Sun-Dried Tomato Quiche. Dairy-free. Egg-free. Vegan.

Today I’m sharing a recipe for a quiche that would be great for sharing in the upcoming season. Check out the festive red and green veggie decoration. You’re bound to attract a ‘wow’ response if you show up at a friend’s party with this clutched in your hands.

The filling is encased in a pastry which is robust enough to be sliced and handled without crumbling, making it suitable for serving as finger food at parties and buffets. It’s dairy-free and egg-free, so perfect for your vegan friends and family. I’ve also made the recipe nut-free, so anyone with nut allergies can safely tuck in.

Roasted Tenderstem, Red Pepper and Sun-Dried Tomato Quiche

Filled with roasted onion, red pepper, sun-dried tomatoes, herbs and nutritional yeast, this quiche is packed with flavour. However, the ‘star’ of this recipe has to be the roasted Tenderstem broccoli. It looks so pretty set in the top of the quiche (like mini Christmas trees!) It also tastes amazing and gives great texture to the dish. Continue reading

Smoky Bean Salad

Today I’m sharing a flavourful, versatile Smoky Bean Salad recipe for the Suma Blogger’s Network. It’s perfect for sharing at BBQs and summer parties, while Lil’ L loves it as a jacket potato topping alongside a Mexican style ‘cheese’ sauce (a tasty vegan twist on the classic ‘beans and cheese’).

Smoky Bean Salad

It’s also my current favourite ‘lunch on the go’. I fill up a container with colourful salad leaves, smoky bean salad and any leftover grains that I find in the fridge – couscous, millet, even pasta – then stuff it into my backpack, hop on my bike and head into Bath city centre. At midday, nothing beats chilling out in one of Bath’s beautiful parks and tucking into my delicious home-made lunch Continue reading
