Dairy Free Spiced Rice Pudding (gf, vegan, sf)

I love a slow cooker pudding because usually it just involves lobbing a load of tasty stuff in at once and then ignoring it until it's ready for eating! I make this rice pudding often, but usually I just wing it, however, just for you, I actually measured, weighed and timed things! Lucky you! Rice … Continue reading Dairy Free Spiced Rice Pudding (gf, vegan, sf)

Chocolate Chestnut Spread (df, gf, sf, vegan)

This recipe was an experiment on a dull day last week. 'Second Lockdown' had just begun in England, the US election was causing some unsettling background anxiety and I'd just had two fairly sizeable bad pieces of news (this is 2020 after all, nothing is allowed to go right is it?!). I'd foraged a bag … Continue reading Chocolate Chestnut Spread (df, gf, sf, vegan)

Dairy & Soy-Free Yoghurt Recipe

Sometimes it can be tricky or expensive to find a soy-free vegan yoghurt at the supermarket, even if there is a lot more choice now than there was 10 years ago when I first went dairy free! My youngest child is both dairy and soy intolerant and so making my own soy-free yoghurt has been … Continue reading Dairy & Soy-Free Yoghurt Recipe

Vegan Lemon Balm Pesto Recipe

I noticed the other day that my lemon balm plant had practically exploded with new growth and realised that I should probably do something with it! Now, it is a plant most well known for making delicious tea that is good for soothing anxiety (If you want to have it as a tea you can … Continue reading Vegan Lemon Balm Pesto Recipe

Elderflower Drizzle Cake (sf, df, gf, vegan)

To me elderflowers herald the end of Spring and the beginning of Summer and their sweet and fragrant blooms are perfect for making cordial. If you get a bit bored of drinking your cordial though, you could try baking with it instead! (Elderflower Ice Pops are also a winner in this house and these lolly … Continue reading Elderflower Drizzle Cake (sf, df, gf, vegan)

CBA Cookery: Loaded Nachos (gf, df, vegan)

I love loaded nachos. There was a time when I would order the 'sharing' nachos platter from Wetherspoons and eat the whole thing myself. Sharing shmaring! Anyway, now I don't bother leaving the house and just make these loaded nachos instead! Who knows what day it is, or who even cares, when there are nachos! … Continue reading CBA Cookery: Loaded Nachos (gf, df, vegan)

CBA Cookery: ‘Chicken’ Korma Recipe (gf, df, vegan)

It's been a while since we had a 'CBA cookery' instalment, but I'm back today with something easy and delicious for those days when you just can't be arsed, but people want feeding!

Pink Hot Chocolate (df, vegan, sf, gf)

There's beetroot in this hot chocolate. There, I said it. Now you're probably thinking "beetroot... are you fucking mad, Kirstie?" and while you wouldn't be wrong in thinking that generally - on this occasion I need you to hear me out! Beetroot is one of those veggies that I find difficult to get into my … Continue reading Pink Hot Chocolate (df, vegan, sf, gf)

Homemade Oat Milk (df, gf, vegan)

I dunno about you but we seem to go through LOADS of dairy-free milk each week. It's one of the most expensive things we buy and I probably spend about Β£8-10 a week on milk! Add in the fact that, although we're lucky enough that the roadside recycling in our area does accept the tetrapak … Continue reading Homemade Oat Milk (df, gf, vegan)

Instant Porridge Recipe (gf, df, vegan, sf)

The weather has turned and I'm in full 'Autumn Mode' and that seems to involve a lot of comfort food! We love porridge for breakfast in this house, but I'm not really much of a 'morning person' so that means I'm always looking for ways to make things as easy as possible and meal-prepping this … Continue reading Instant Porridge Recipe (gf, df, vegan, sf)
