Today I’m sharing a recipe for smoky tempeh slices that are just perfect as a sandwich filling. They are super easy to make and packed full of flavour. Add some lettuce, slices of juicy tomato and a dollop of mayonnaise and you have a delicious vegan alternative to the classic BLT sandwich – the ‘TLT’ (Tempeh, Lettuce, Tomato).Continue reading “Smoky Tempeh, Lettuce & Tomato (‘TLT’) Sandwich [Vegan]”

In today’s post, I’m sharing the recipe for a delicious broccoli soup that my family has been loving lately. This is the kind of soup that I crave in the winter months. It’s thick and creamy, and packed full of immune-boosting nutrients.
It’s quick to make from scratch, making it handy for those weeknights when you need dinner on the table in thirty minutes or less. It’s super cheap too. I calculated that it cost me £2.83 to make, which works out at just 94p per portion!Continue reading “Creamy “Cheesy” Broccoli Soup [Vegan / Dairy Free]”
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.

Today I’d like to share another one of my family’s current favourite dishes – Moroccan Fruity Couscous. This is such a pretty dish, full of flavour and ready in just 20 minutes!
It makes a lovely summer weekend lunch or speedy weeknight supper. It’s equally delicious served hot or cold, making it perfect for al fresco dining, picnics and buffets. As a main meal, we love to serve it with strips of warm pitta or garlic bread, some baby salad leaves and a large dollop of hummus. Moroccan-spiced or roasted red pepper hummus is especially good!Continue reading “Moroccan Fruity Couscous”
