Spiced Banana Bread
Not only vegan but nut free too and it’s a fantastic way to use up ripe bananas. I love this fresh from the oven or slice up and toast and serve with pumpkin seed butter or a little drizzle of maple syrup. Get the recipe
This big pan of saucy smoky chickpeas is crowd-pleasing for brunch, lunch, anytime of day. And what’s more, you can always crack in some eggs for egg lovers. Get the recipe.
Festive Citrus Salad
A fruity colourful salad that makes a refreshing side to any roast dinners. Add in extra lentils or some caramelised veg to make it heartier. Get the recipe.
Speedy Pumpkin Curry
So easy, use a big pumpkin or any type of squash to make this hearty creamy veggie curry. Peas from the freezer add a pop of green and I keep spinach in the freezer too, ready for recipes like this when you can always add in an extra portion too of greens. Get the recipe.
Cambodian Pepper Noodles
Gorgeous colourful noodles, delicious not or cold, I love the Cambodian peppercorns and was given them as a present last year. But any pepper or chill would be wonderful here. Get the recipe.
Hoisin Aubergine Chickpea Pancakes
Inspired by my fave, hoisin duck, these simple chickpea pancakes go perfectly with these sticky aubergines and creamy tahini hoisin sauce. Definitely give this one a go. Get the recipe.
Chinese Mushroom Noodle Soup
Soulful soothing noodle soup, I like this with buckwheat noodles and lots of veggies. Get the recipe.
These 5 ingredients chocolate truffles are such a hit. Roll them in a variety of colourful coatings like chopped pistachios or hazelnuts or coconut and freeze dried raspberries. They keep very well in the fridge. Get the recipe.
Mushroom Quinoa Stir-fry with Grilled Lettuce Wedges
Grilled lettuce wedges are a revelation. They turn limp lettuce that looks too sad for a lettuce into something very special to crown a delicious stir fry. Get the recipe.
Sesame Lime Chopped Salad
When you’re feeling a bit food fatigued, enter this super refreshing and tasty salad. Serve it warm or cold, it’s great to feed a crowd and a fantastic way to eat lots of crunchy veggies. Get the recipe.
