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!

In today’s post, I’m sharing a delicious soup recipe that’s just perfect for the cold weather season. It’s creamy, filling and flavoured with spices that will warm you from the inside out. Topped with tamari-glazed chickpeas and seeds, and accompanied with a slice or two of wholegrain bread, this soup makes a wonderful evening supper or weekend lunch option. It is also budget-friendly. It cost me just £3.00 to make, which equates to 75p per portion. Bargain!

Curried Chickpea Smash Sandwich Filling

Hey lovely people! Today, I have a new, tasty sandwich filling for you. It’s creamy, crunchy, tangy and gently spiced with the flavours of India. It also happens to be packed full of nutrients. This is a sandwich filling that will leave you feeling full and energised. Just what you need to see you through a busy afternoon at work or school.

For most of his school life, Lucien has chosen to take a packed lunch. In the primary years especially, this encouraged me to get creative and ‘think outside the box’ as I couldn’t rely on traditional sandwich fillings like cheese or peanut butter. In fact, during his entire seven years of primary school, he didn’t take a single traditional sandwich in his lunchbox. Instead, we tended to fill his box with leftovers from the previous night’s dinner – fajita wraps, pizza slices, tofu frittata, roasted vegetable pasta, Moroccan couscous, chunky soups, and even leftover Moroccan tagine and sweet potato curry!

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!
