Black Bean Cookies

I’ll be the first to admit that I was a massive skeptic when it came to black bean brownies and cookies. But after seeing so much hype and hearing rave reviews, I decided to bite the bullet and attempt them for myself. And while in most cases I hate admitting that I’m wrong, I will…

Two Ingredient Chocolate Truffles

I’m excited to be working with an amazing company called The Chocolate Yogi to create a handful of delicious, chocolatey recipes over the coming months. The Chocolate Yogi are an Australian owned chocolate company that produce raw, organic, vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free, palm oil free (etc. etc) chocolate, with a portion of funds…

Almond & Apricot Muesli Bars

I’m so sick of having to reheat lunches at uni. Waiting in line for the only two microwaves on campus and then finally heating my lunch, only to realise that half of it’s still cold and I’ve wasted 30 minutes of my break. Don’t you love that? These muesli bars have been a lifesaver for…

Vegan Mac & Cheese

I’m going to come clean about something with you guys. In my pre-vegan days, I hated mac & cheese. I know, what kind of human am I? Even before I became vegan, I never particularly enjoyed cheese or anything cheesy. I couldn’t understand how people had such an immense love (and maybe obsession) for cheese….

Homemade Potato Chips

Yep you read right. Potato chips. Like the Red Rock Deli or Smiths ones you buy in a bag at the supermarket and the service station and on a night out when you’re downing a few too many ciders (don’t tell me you’re not guilty of this). I know you’re shocked that you can make these at home. Trust…

Lazy Girl Vegan Laksa

I still don’t understand why it is so hard to find a laksa paste without animal ingredients. I’ve scowled countless supermarkets and Asian grocers with no luck. And I don’t know about you guys, but I’m always just a little (okay, maybe a lot…) upset when an Asian restaurant is unable to vegan-ify a vegetarian laksa for…

Raspberry & White Chocolate Muffins

After a self-induced sugar coma last night (consisting of Oreo ice cream, white chocolate, vegan mnm’s and the famous ‘Vego Bar’), I woke up feeling a little “sugar hungover.” I walked to the kitchen for my morning glass of Metamucil and saw a half opened bag of white chocolate buttons, staring at me. I wanted…

The Souper Series: Thai Carrot & Coriander Soup

In my opinion, carrots have always been an ingredient to accompany something else in a soup. In a pumpkin soup, I’ll add a few carrots for sweetness and flavour, in a minestrone they’re perfect paired with pasta and tomatoes and kidney beans. But I’d never even thought of making a carrot soup. That was until…

The Souper Series: Vegan ‘Chicken’ Noodle Soup

For most of my childhood my mum would make this incredible chicken soup during the winter months, full of shredded roast chicken, chicken stock, chilli, lentil soup mix and all mopped up with a thick loaf of pana di casa bread. I absolutely loved it. I still don’t know why it’s taken me almost three…

The Souper Series: Homemade Vegetable Broth

There has been a lot of talk about ‘bone broth’ as of late, and the healing gut powers it claims to provide. Essentially it’s just a fancy name for beef (or chicken) stock, but people claim that the broken down animal bones contain essential vitamins and minerals which can alleviate joint and gut pain, brighten…

The Souper Series: Classic Vegan Pumpkin Soup

This is easily one of my favourite soup recipes. Even during the months outside of winter I find myself returning to this recipe over and over again. It’s simple, comforting and perfect served with crusty bread and a sprinkling of poppy seeds. When chopping and deseeding the pumpkin, I keep the seeds and roast them in…

The Souper Series: Curry Pumpkin & Coriander Soup

This recipe is an extension of my favourite classic pumpkin soup. It is just as creamy and pumpkin-y as its original, however this one packs a punch with its mild curry flavours and fresh coriander. Plus, it’s a great flu-fighter, loaded with chilli, ginger, garlic and turmeric! It’s delish served with basmati rice, poppy seeds and…
