Chinese Egg-Fried Rice … Vegan Style!


In today’s post, I’m sharing a recipe for a Chinese “Egg-Fried” Rice that’s perfect for serving any night when you need a quick and easy meal on the table. Not only is it tasty, but it’s also packed full of nutritional goodness. It’s especially rich in protein, vitamins A, B and C, and an array of minerals. For example, a quarter serving of the recipe provides a whopping 48% of the protein RDA, 55% of the calcium RDA, 53% of the vitamin C RDA and 168% of the vitamin A RDA!! It’s also much lower in fat than traditional Chinese egg-fried rice and contains zero cholesterol.

And, most importantly, it’s cruelty free! No hens or chicks were harmed in the making of this meal!

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!

Vegan All Day English Breakfast

The English are famous for their all-day breakfast fry-ups, which typically feature a whole bunch of animal products – sausages, bacon, eggs and black pudding – served alongside mushrooms, tomatoes, hash browns, baked beans and fried bread. However, just because you’re passing on eating animals, this doesn’t mean you have to miss out on this traditional English culinary experience. There are so many amazing all-day veggie breakfast options available now, and they’re often far more creative and colourful (and healthy!) than the meat version.

Today I’m sharing a recipe for a delicious vegan cooked breakfast that, as the title suggests, is suitable for serving any time of day. We’ve been enjoying it as an evening meal, but it’s equally perfect as a weekend breakfast, brunch or lunch.

Vegan Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Today, I’m finally publishing my recipe for a vegan carrot cake that’s just perfect for sharing with friends and family. It contains no dairy or eggs, yet tastes just as good (if not better!) than its traditional counterpart. This was the cake that I chose to bake for my mum’s and father-in-law’s birthdays this year and I’m pleased to say, it went down a treat!

This cake is really easy to make and uses basic pantry ingredients. The frosting is made with dairy-free cream ‘cheese’ which, here in the UK, is widely available in health food shops and larger supermarkets. With its characteristic ‘sweet and tangy’ flavour, this frosting is the perfect complement to carrot cake. However, if you prefer, you could easily swap it for a more traditional (dairy-free) butter cream frosting. Continue reading
