My favourite, easy, go-to Dal

I read this article from Dr Michael Greger about the significantly lower rates of cancer in India as compared to the USA and was absolutely blown away. I mean, US men get 23 times more prostate cancer than men in India?! Whaaaat? Americans get between 8 and 14 times the rate of melanoma, 10 toContinue reading “My favourite, easy, go-to Dal”

Ultimate Vegan Ramen

In our house, we LOVE ramen. Before we became vegan, there was a time when Max and I used to go and have ramens for lunch at least once every week. There was a little restaurant run by Japanese guys down the road from my office and they had a lunch special where you couldContinue reading “Ultimate Vegan Ramen”

Creamy Oats with Nuts and Berries

I posted our favourite overnight chia seed pudding recipe¬†a while back, which is Max’s absolute favourite weekday breakfast.

Generally my attempts at cooking lead to very mixed results but today fortune was with me and the resulting dish turned out really well (orContinue reading “Penne with Cauliflower and Tomato Sauce”

Vegan Tofu Spaghetti Bolognese

We LOVEEEEEEE spaghetti bolognese and it is one of the few things that we were really sad to say goodbye to when we stopped eating meat. BUT, I just couldn’t accept it. I searched the internet for vegan versions and came across very many, but none sounded just right. Lentils didn’t appeal. Then, I cameContinue reading “Vegan Tofu Spaghetti Bolognese”
