Adventures in vegan eats and feats


Chocolate brittle ice-cream

Whoop whoop! I am super excited about today’s post because I get to talk about one of my favourite things: chocolate ice-cream! Some of you may have seen my review of One Green Planet’s Food Monster app here but I’ve shifted it over to this post so that each one gets its own bit of shiny ๐Ÿ˜€Chocolate brittle ice-cream {vegan + gluten-free} via Marfigs' Munchies Continue reading


Vegan chocolate meringue baubles

I have to study for exams, so naturally I’m procrastinating and thought this would be the perfect time to share something truly delicious ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve seen these sorts of treats at the Saturday food market and have quizzed the poor person a few times on how she made hers (which aren’t vegan), but of course I had to veganize it eventually and here it is! Delicious, actually easy, and all done with just a bit of patience ๐Ÿ™‚veganmeringuebaubles Continue reading


Orange + blueberry cookies

I’m a cookie monster. That is, I can slay a packet in seconds flat but creating them is another story altogether. Somehow I have the motivation to make layered cakes, baklava and even chutneyย from scratch, but cookies are terrifying? Well, quirks and what not. Or laziness. Either way, it’s holiday (is my gloating getting to be a bit much? :D) so I have no excuses. Cookies for everyone!xmascookiessplash Continue reading


Red lentil burger wraps with curried pumpkin fries

The best part of my weekends is going to the Saturday market. Fresh air, outside vibes, people watching, family, and a delicious falafel wrap. I don’t always indulge but sometimes I buy a stack of their homemade spinach wraps to munch during the week, and with a hankering for protein I made some super quick and easy burgers to stuff inside them. Healthy and a real treat!redlentilburgersplash

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. ๐Ÿ˜€ 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


Sticky date pudding (GF + V)

The other day I asked for suggestions for stuff to make, because my brain is kind of on auto-pilot at the moment. Enter sticky date pudding! Not quite traditional in looks, but it hits the spot and does so with natural ingredients and NO added processed sugar. I can’t say whether I enjoy the muffin-sized cakes or the sauce more, so let’s just say that together they work magic.ย stickydatepuddingSPLASH

Apple cornbread French toast cake (gf + v)

Some of you may know that despite life getting the best of me sometimes, I like to plan ahead and have as much control as possible. Well, this has been on my to-do list since last year October, and I’m only now getting around to making it, but the point is I did, so suck it studies – I can totally multitask! ๐Ÿ˜€frenchtoastsplash1 Continue reading


Zesty caramel nut cookies (gf + v)

ย Greetings! It’s Sunday (most sadly) and I’ve got something fun to share today – some tasty, super easy cookies! I’ve been plotting these for a while, so it’s a treat to finally get to share them. Click to eyeball the recipe!cookiespreadsplash

Cauliflower flatbreads

Ever since February I’ve been in a bit of a body funk, not knowing what to eat or what’s going to make me regret eating, and unfortunately basic cauliflower is not my friend. Mashed down and hidden in different forms, however, it’s a dream come true because it’s such a versatile ingredient that happens to be healthy and low-carb. I wouldn’t say I’m necessarily on a low carb kick (definitely not, in fact), but it’s just one of those added bonuses. Flourless, easy and a good staple to keep in the house, these flatbreads are pretty ninja at keeping you full on the go.flatbreadspread

Chocolate meringue cookies

I’ve been a cookie monster of late. I’m not sure whether it’s a sense of ennui that’s becoming overwhelming, with cookies as a temporary cure, or whether they’re just that bladdy good that they require their own food group. There’s always a middle ground to be had, but these cookies are no slackers in either department. Those bits of crushed meringue really make this a stunning little cookie, so let’s head over to the recipe! ๐Ÿ™‚topmeringuecookiessplash Continue reading
