Festive Feast Finale

​This is the part where I decide which elements I will be including for my Xmas Day feast. I had previously stated, that it would be a refined event but that was definitely a lie. Before the main meal even gets under way, it is a good idea to have a good sized breakfast, as…

Minted Pea Open Sandwich

I have always been a fan of open sandwiches, they rely on vibrancy to sell the sandwich and for this recipe I think I have achieved a wonderful green open sandwich that will work beautifully. The sharpness off the mint cuts through the taste of the peas, giving it a super fresh taste. Everyone knows…

Mozzarella & Avocado Grill Cheese

​Vegan Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are something I eat on a regular basis, but when thinking of the creamy taste of vegan mozzarella, I thought it would be perfect to team it up with another smooth and creamy favourite of mine – avocado. Avocado, is probably my favourite thing to eat, I can eat it with…

Vegan BLT

​This is a bit of a cheeky one, because after I had done my ‘sides’ section, I discovered Green Bay, which is a magical Vegan shop, that sells delicious goodies. I will be posting a full recap of my time their after Xmas, so look out for that. Whilst there I got myself some vegan bacon, and it…

Toad in the hole 

When something this good is completely vegan, it just has to be made for everyone I know!  This is why I think toad in the hole is a great Boxing Day option,  it’s so cheap and easy. Give it a go! My recipe serves 2 large portions, or 4 small portions depending on how hungry…

Red Potato and Carrot Wedges

​Red potato and Carrot wedges are always a great option, because we all have carrots and potatoes lying around after Xmas day, it couldn’t easier to chop them up and whack them in the oven. No seriously, this is basically all you have to do. If you’re anything like me, the left over roast potatoes,…

Apple Crumble

​Apple Crumble is a classic and it is so easy to make vegan. You can make this ahead of time but personally, I like it to be served immediately. You can use whatever apples you like, for this, you will get a change in taste depending on how tart the apple is, but this is…

Chocolate Tangerines

​Chocolate dipped tangerines are something to be savoured. Dark chocolate especially as the contrast between the two flavours are just….wow! I decided to use tangerines instead of oranges as I prefer the flavour of tangerines. Tangerine and dark chocolate being the only ingredients required, I am not exaggerating when I say you have to try…

Cranberry Reduction

​Cranberry sauce is one thing, but a cranberry reduction is quite another. If you have made your own cranberry sauce, then this should absolutely be showcased in this decadent sauce, however if you are using a shop bought vegan cranberry sauce, then this works also. Unlike other reductions, this is really quick to make and…

Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Sauce is the best sauce for this time of year, it goes with everything, from roasts to sandwiches, it is so quick to make and it just makes me think of Xmas. You can serve this straight away or allow it to cool and store it in a sterilized mason jar, (either way, it…
