10 Minute Vegan Paella

All the Spanish flavours made so much faster with one secret ingredient… Microwaveable rice. I kid you not, this paella can be whipped up as quick as a flash and of course with just veggies there is no need to waste time over meat slowly cooking away. This trick was inspired by The Body Coach’s ‘Lean in 15’…

Smashed Chickpea Sandwich

Flavoured with chipotle, these are not your average chickpeas but instead glorious, smoky goodness. Rather than attempting the ‘mock-tuna’ craze at the moment, it uses minimal ingredients to neither overcomplicate the flavours or overspend.

Recipes like these are particularly useful within exam periods or when you’re overwhelmed with work as it produces many meals with…

Baked Veggie Spring Rolls

Rhubarb & Gooseberry Crumble

There is an abundance of fruit both growing in my garden and piling up in all the shops because it’s finally SUMMER and not only is it sunny and warm but all the delicious fruit is now in season. It’s been a fantastic year for the garden too with our rhubarb plant practically taking over so…
