No Bake Chocolate Doughnuts

Who doesn’t love chocolate doughnuts?! Even better, they’re totally plant-based and require no baking! Woo hoo!

The dates in this recipe create an amazing fudgy texture. If you’re a fan of rich, gooey, chocolatey things – this one is for you.

I haven’t posted in a while, but intend on getting back on track soon. Ross has recently had surgery on his back, so I’m currently full-time chef/nurse! I’m confident I can heal him with doughnuts…

BBQ Seitan Ribs

Say hello to the ultimate meat substitute

I’ve never been too sure where the ‘vegans just love eating grass’ notion comes from. I often experiment with recipes like this, to show that you really can eat whatever you want on a plant-based diet!

When you can have all the taste without the cruelty and harm, why wouldn’t you?

This simple recipe is modified slightly from the lovely Fat Free Vegan, and it is absolute perfection. Meaty, smokey and satisfying. I know what my friends are being fed next time they visit!

One last thing – seitan is very low in fat and very high in protein. Each portion contains approximately 60g of protein, far more gram-for-gram than chicken!

Walnut and Spinach Pesto

I love pesto! Traditionally made with pine nuts and Parmesan cheese, this plant-based wonder packs an equal punch of fresh pesto deliciousness.

Create this beautiful, super easy recipe by simply popping all the ingredients into a blender and whizzing until smooth. With a total preparation time of just 10 minutes, it’s perfect stirred into some pasta for a quick and easy lunch.

Happily, it boasts both taste and nutrition. Walnuts are packed with protein, essential vitamins and are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. The perfect excuse for adding pesto to everything, right?

Kale Crisps

There’s no denying that kale is the king of the super healthy greens, being one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. Eating more kale is a sure way to dramatically increase the total nutrient content of your diet.

But let’s face it, kale can taste pretty rubbish.

The kale crisp changes the game! This little bowl of goodness is ideal for a healthy snack, tastes incredible (yes, really) and takes a total prep time of just 10 minutes. And they make an oddly satisfying crispy sound…
