Vegan Mushroom Pesto Sandwich

Mushrooms are a constant fixture in my fridge. I have always loved mushrooms for their umami flavour and their ability to cook instantly. In fact, if mushrooms are super fresh (like at our local markets), I have been known to eat them raw on my way back home from loading my baskets with fresh produce. A fresh raw mushroom is a delightful thing, meaty and crisp and incredibly sweet! Now I buy a few bags of tiny button mushrooms (tiny white one... Read More >>

Crispy Cauliflower Buffalo Wings With Sour Cashew Cream Sauce And The Philips Airfryer XXL

One of my new favourite things to experiment with in the kitchen is the Philips Airfryer. I remember when they first came out in 2010, they were the talk of the town. Deep frying with air? Not oil?

It allowed people to fry using 80% less fat* –... Read More >>

Warming, hearty and vegan to boot; it is one of the most beautiful dishes you will serve at the dinner table. Because, making a green minestrone soup is an art. Just like the opera. Where the singers and the musicians are perfectly synced and the notes have to be precise and hit at the right time. Where the colour... Read More >>

Vegan Basil Pesto With Miso

Let's talk about why I decided to share a vegan basil pesto recipe when I already have a few basil pesto recipes on the blog that are dead simple and house favourites including one for Thai pesto (yum!). Dairy has never been a good friend of mine. I love it. I mean, I love butter and couldn't live without it! I love a splash of milk in my coffee, yoghurt, a bite of hard aged cheese every now and then and the occasional (well, more than occasi... Read More >>
