Pulled Jackfruit Gyros

Three pulled jackfruit gyros with lemon, dairy-free yoghurt and salad, served with lemon wedges on a wooden chopping board

If you think that eating a plant-based diet means that you can’t eat gyros any more – think again! Just because I’m vegan, that’s not to say I don’t like them. I just like mine ethically made, and these delicious pulled jackfruit gyros with smokey BBQ sauce certainly deliver. It’s mind-blowing how much the texture […]

Thinly sliced tempeh with Korean inspired BBQ marinade is complemented perfectly with the crispy green bean and pesto salsa, and toasted macadamias.

Powergreens bowl with pea, spinach, tofu and dukkah served in a white ceramic bowl, next to crusty bread, half a lemon, and a small bowl of dukkah

My dad always has had his pride and joy: his organic veggie patch and fruit trees. As a kid, and when spinach was in season, my mum used to make me big a powergreens bowl of blended spinach with mashed potatoes which she called spinacha. It was my absolute favourite food, and I’d always ask […]

Get your vegan meaty, nut neatballs right here! They’re delicious and incredibly addictive. I dare you not to try a few straight out of the hot pan. When I switched to a plant-based diet, I was surprised to realise that from all my old favourite meat dishes, the flavours rarely come from the meat. Instead, […]

Forget everything you know about making gnocchi. It’s not hard! Well, not when you make it with silken tofu! Unlike traditional potato gnocchi, there’s no need to pre-cook anything for tofu gnocchi. Instead, all you do is throw the raw ingredients together in a bowl, mash it up, roll it out, chop them up, and […]

Okra, Eggplant, & Lentil Cassoulet

A large skillet with okra, eggplant, and lentil cassoulet topped with a dollop of coconut yoghurt and olive oil, and served with a small bowl of white rice and seeds

Okra, eggplant, and lentil cassoulet is the bomb, and it makes the ultimate comfort meal. The flavour is smokey with loads of cumin and smoked paprika, and full of richness from the balsamic roasted eggplants and okra. Roasting the okra takes away the sliminess that’s otherwise inherent with this vegetable. If you haven’t tried okra […]

Vegan Thai ‘Egg Net’ Salad

One of my favourite Thai dishes on the planet is an egg net salad. It’s fresh, zesty, spicy, and the nuts give a satisfying crunch. I have masterminded a way to create a vegan version of this tasty dish by replacing the egg net with tofu skin (which is also called yuba or bean curd […]

Gazpacho is a Spanish soup served cool, making it the perfect summer meal. I know that can sound kind of strange if you’ve never had cold soup before. I thought so too before I tried it myself, but when I did I realised I’d been missing out! It’s so delicious and refreshing! My pear and […]
