Iced Spice Coconut Latte

A good iced coffee can be a revelation.  There are so many elements fighting for attention in an iced coffee glass. The coffee, the sweetness, the milk, the flavouring. If one is more overpowering than the others, the balance is thrown off. After experimenting for weeks, I finally created the perfect iced coffee. A vegan beverage, as rich as a decadent dessert but as light as water, as warming as the sunshine streaming through the clouds w... Read More >>

Rainbow Veggie Coconut Dal

It is a bloody miracle that I haven't shared a dal recipe on the blog for a while now, considering I am cooking dals every week (much to my boys annoyance!). The last time I shared some delicious wholesome dal recipes, I received so many messages asking for more. Who knew, cheap dal dinners was a regular old thing - and not just in my home! So today, I am sharing another of my this-is-the-dal-i-want-to-eat-everyday obsessions. A Rainbow Veggie Co... Read More >>

Instant Vegan Mango Ice Cream

Do you often wonder why when you make mango ice cream or smoothies at home, do they taste like bland sweetness whereas that mango ice cream from that gelato place tastes like sheer pleasure in a cone? There are two main reasons. The first being the type of mango. The key to a good mango ice cream is the variety of the mango used. I do not trust recipes that call for any mango to make an ice cream. Because all mangoes were not created equal! A... Read More >>

Vegan Dal Makhani (Creamy Black Lentil Dal)

Baked Mushroom Curry - Cook Republic #vegan #glutenfree

Baked Mushroom Curry

This recipe is unlike any curry recipe I have ever cooked or shared on the blog. It is a great example of modern cuisine and the way we cook and eat now. A one-pan baked mushroom curry recipe that is cooked entirely in one pan and entirely in the oven but one that produces the most luscious creamy curry with perfectly cooked mushrooms and loads of flavour without any effort at all. The secret to that creamy sauce? A bit of coconut milk and a ... Read More >>
Ginger Chia Pudding With Papaya And Lime - Cook Republic

Ginger Chia Pudding With Papaya And Lime

I have been making this chia pudding a lot. That's because when we are on the couch at night watching Netflix, I am trying to avoid reaching for those tubs of Connoisseur ice cream that invariably end up in my shopping trolley during my supermarket dash. I have a basic chia pudding recipe that I pull out every time I want to make it as I can never remember the liquid to chia ratio. Chia is a liquid hog and like a thirsty desert traveller, it ...
