Rye flour pancake recipe

Rye flour pancakes.pngThis vegan rye flour pancake recipe is exceptionally simple to make and results in pancakes that people would easily not realise they’re dairy-free. Rye is one of the most nutritious types of flour as the germ and bran are not separated during processing. It’s a great source of fiber and magnesium, the latter of which is required to breakdown glucose. Continue reading

Vegan food in Seville & Andalusia 

Happy New Year! I know I’m a week late, but who can do much more the first week back than waste hours on SkyScanner and travel websites…?

Known for my love of holidays almost as much as my love of food, I took myself away to sunny Andalusia to celebrate my birthday and Christmas (Jesus basically wanted us to be twins but I beat him to it by two days).

It was one of the most chilled, enjoyable, fun-filled, Vermouth-stained Christmasses I’ve had. Massive Continue reading

My year in food (what else?!)

Screen Shot 2016-12-30 at 14.07.22.pngOn scrolling through my Instagram feed it’s apparent that I’ve eaten and cooked a helluva lot of food this year. Who knew it was such a big thing for me?! My #2016bestnine (left) was a bit of a surprise but I suppose that’s the power of the hashtag! So here’s a round up of some of my own favourite foodie experiences of 2016 from what I’ve cooked to what I’ve eaten in London, across the UK and further afield. Narrowing a fab food year down was pretty tough so check out my Instagram for even more delectable dishes. Continue reading

Lentil and mushroom wellington recipe

 Wellington is often a rather bland veggie roast or Christmas option – often with unimaginative goats cheese. I recently had a delicious mushroom bourguignon wellington at Cafe Van Gogh and my opinion was changed! So on deciding last minute to make an early Christmas dinner for me and Tristan as I’m away over the holidays – and by last minute I mean Continue reading

Vegan roasts in London

mannaAs winter draws in our minds and bellies want warmth and comfort. The ubiquitous Sunday roast is as much a part of London food culture as curry and fish and chips and whilst many places are now regaling vegans with their vegan to-fish options, it’s rather difficult to find a vegan decent roast in the city. Seriously, why does there have to be goats cheese on everything?!  But some creative and damn clever chefs are bucking the trend to serve up warming, delicious Sunday roasts that will make you want Monday to come round even less quickly. Continue reading

Autumnal vegetable curry recipe

Autumnal curry.pngI’ve (yet again) been fairly slack on the blog of late.  I can definitely blame the fact that I am not in the kitchen nearly as much as I used to due to my current work situation as I’m generally struggling to find time to keep up with every day tasks, let alone blogging. But I’m going to make a concerted effort this month to ramp up for a renewed 2017 and get back to my plan. Yes, I know I’ve said that before!

So today I bring you another Ruby & Pickles recipe as that is when I do the most of my creative cooking these days. Continue reading

Aubergine pickle recipe

aubergine-pickleAubergine is one of my top obsessions which I’ve spoken about before. An odd vegetable that I never saw eye-to-eye with as a child is something that I now want to eat in all sorts of ways and which I’ve written up a few recipes on already including baba ghanoush, aubergine ‘bacon’, grilled aubergine and stuffed aubergine. I might actually have to start a dedicated aubergine page when I redesign my blog (coming soon in 2017!) Continue reading
