I often bake Parkin in the autumn/winter time and this time I fancied putting my own spin on it and wanted to share the results with you.

I have wanted to make my own vegan ice cream for a long time – but for some reason thought it would be difficult. I was wrong. I want to share with you the tastiest, dairy free ice cream that you can easily make at home.
I love popcorn and I had become quite obsessed by Blooms nice and nutty flavour popcorn – but homemade popcorn is a much healthier and far less expensive alternative. Plain popcorn is low in calories, high in fibre and has a high level of polyphenols (antioxidants) which makes it a healthy alternative for snacking. So I decided to pick up some popcorn kernels and make some popcorn at home.
I have wanted to re-create Millionaire’s Shortbread for some time. I’ve stumbled across many recipes and I’ve tried a few, using different techniques and different dairy alternatives but they’ve just not been quite right. Until now, finally I’ve cracked it, so here I am sharing my recipe with you all. It’s a rich Vegan experience but don’t worry, you don’t have to be a Vegan millionaire to try this recipe, it just makes you feel like one!
As I said in my previous blog entry I love to experiment in the kitchen and this is a perfect example – A work colleague brought in to work some slices of Coconut Milk Cake one dreary Monday morning a few weeks ago and everyone loved it, I just had to have a go at Vegan-ising it. When it comes to cakes I don’t like being left out, especially Coconut flavoured cakes! This is how I did it…
Just over a week ago we went to London for the day. Whilst walking along Oxford Street we started to feel quite hungry and wasn’t sure where we could get something decent to eat. We happened upon a Lebanese food stall that was serving a Falafel and Houmous sandwich so we gave it a go. We have since recreated this at home. Here’s how:
We recently published our recipe for Home made Houmous and it seems to have proved fairly popular. Heres an example of something you can do with the houmous you’ve already made; great for quick lunches.
Houmous is so expensive to buy in supermarkets, but is relatively cheap to make at home, plus you can tailor it to your own specific taste. Houmous is a great source of fibre, protein, iron and calcium, it’s super stuff for Vegans.
