Marfigs' Munchies

Adventures in vegan eats and feats


Shepherd’s pie quesadilla {vegan + gluten-free}

Phew! When is it holiday?? These days every moment, even those in which I am supposedly bored, are basically booked or planned for. I’m not exhausted per se, just rather grumpy. Anyway, all that being said I did some meal prep on Sunday which helped with stress relief and I felt much better, not to mention the house was nicely stocked again for a week’s worth of munching. This is more of an idea that a straight-up recipe, because the ingredients are plain and simple but the result tasty and filling!Vegan & GF Shepherd's Pie Quesadillas via Marfigs' MunchiesAnd once again remember to download the free Chocolate Cleanse Riot ebook!

Chickpea scramble (vegan + gluten-free)

My last exam of the season is tomorrow, so naturally I’m procrastinating: reading fic, watching youtube clips on reincarnated Egyptians (Omm Seti), and generally plotting my life around comfort food. To totally legitimize this terrible behaviour I’m sharing something I’ve been munching a few times now for lunch with much glee: easy chickpea scramble that is so protein-packed you won’t feel hungry for a long while after. chickpeascramblesplash

Staggered shepherd’s pie

It’s Monday! I have no idea how that happened, other than blinking away the weekend. We’re mired in a heat wave at the moment and yet somehow I ended up in front of an oven the whole of yesterday, baking away on what felt like a billion projects. This one was meant to just be a hearty meal, but it managed to get the Man-thing stamp of approval, so you know it has to be shiny! Whether you’re up north enjoying the spoils of snow, or down south and happy to eat cold leftovers, this is a dish that can be made with ridiculously little effort, which is always in season.shepardspienomsplash Continue reading


Vegan Mediterranean dumpling stew

The weather in South Africa is ridiculous at the moment. Boiling hot one moment, bursting with swooshy winds and rain the next. With such inconsistency it is better to err on the side of caution and stock up on hold and cold foods to ensure happiness all round. On the toasty front I decided to finally make some dumplings, since I recall Man-thing asking about them a while back, and it’s always a good excuse to make a stew. 😀 Are you cold, miserable, hungry? Well, if you have an hour to spare, including half an hour of lounging about, bust out your pantry ingredients and go wild!dumplingtops1 Continue reading


Cherry pumpkin galette

This is a semi-savoury, semi-sweet kinda deal here, which makes it legit for all hours of the day. I’m going to say something pretty shocking, considering the high praises it usually gets on Marfigs, but I’m rather sick of smoothie bowls and my usual fare at the moment, and sometimes it’s nice to change it up a bit. This galette is so easy and tasty that there’s no excuse not to give it a go and then stick it in your lunch box, breakfast or dinner plate.

Creamy corn chowder soup

This is so easy to make that I’m going to send the link to Man-thing and with little subtlety meow about it on the regular so that I can get some Man-made dinner or lunch, which of course is the best there is. This is creamy, delicious, flavourful, and just a delight to eat. In fact, when finishing it up for dinner last night, Man-thing proclaimed that it was now his dish, most likely meaning that any attempts to make it in future must all be plated to him with not a morsel for me. We’ll see about that!cornchowdersplash Continue reading


Falafel bowl

I finally get to share this with you, since it’s been a hectic, long and slow week. These awesomesauce baked goodies are the perfect filler for sandwiches, salads, pastas and wraps, and next time I’m doubling the recipe. Let’s head over to the recipe!falafelsplash Continue reading
