Red Lentil & Chickpea Curry with Crispy Tofu & Kale

Let me just preface this post by saying that while I love a good curry as much as the next person, I rarely cook them at home because, well because I live in a small apartment and getting rid of the smell the next day can be quite a task! And for a self-confessed clean…

The Redemption Salad

I’m not ashamed to admit (ok maybe just a little) that I was a fat little piggy last week / weekend; eating and drinking pretty much anything and everything without any trace of remorse. That said, after stuffing my face with burgers and beer and whatever else I could get my hands on I woke…

Cheesy Quinoa Chilli Bake

Look, I don’t mean to brag guys, but I think I’ve really outdone myself with this one. I mean, what’s not to love about a big bowl of spicy, cheesy, delicious veggie goodness on a freezing winter’s night? As with most of my recipes, this one is easily adapted to suit your own personal tastes….

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

After successfully completing my 14 day detox (all vegan, no alcohol, no caffeine, no pasta, no bread, no fun), I have to admit I was feeling a little bit tired of salad. But not wanting to just dive back in to eating whatever the hell I wanted, I decided to persevere and hunt around for…
