Chickpea Smash with Dill Pickles – Delicious Vegan Sandwich Filling!

In today’s post I’m sharing a sandwich filling that is tangy, crunchy, creamy and oh so delicious! It reminds me of the Heinz Sandwich Spread that I used to love as a kid in the 80s, but this home-made version is way fresher, tastier and healthier too! 

It’s packed full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and plant proteins. Just a single sandwich’s worth of the filling provides a whopping 193% of the recommended daily amount (RDA) of vitamin A, 26% of vitamin C and 10% of protein. Add a couple of slices of wholegrain bread and the protein content shoots up to 31%.

If you’re looking for a new sandwich to liven up school or work lunchboxes, I’d definitely recommend giving this recipe a try. It would also be great for picnics and buffets. As well as a sandwich filling, you can also use it as a topping for crackers. Perhaps even as a jacket potato topper too? Now that is something I definitely need to try!

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!

Jackfruit Bulgogi

In today’s post, I’m sharing a recipe for a delicious, meat-free alternative to the traditional Korean dish known as ‘Bulgogi’. It’s simple to make and highly versatile too. So far, I’ve served it in salad bowls and as a sandwich filling, however I also think it would be great for filling tacos and tortilla wraps, topping pizzas and for serving in ‘Buddha bowls’ along with sticky rice and wok-fried greens. This Jackfruit Bulgogi has been a big hit with my family and I hope you enjoy it too!
