Coconut Curry

Las Iguanas is one of my favourite restaurants. They were the first mainstream eatery I went to that had a separate vegan/vegetarian menu. For those who don't know, Las Iguanas is a South American-inspired restaurant chain; they sell everything from quesadillas to fajitas, and they're roughly the same price as Nando's. The first time I… Continue reading Coconut Curry

Friday Basket: Vegan Apple Flapjack Recipe

It is equally amazing and frustrating to find out that a food item which is a regular purchase, can actually be made at home for a fraction of the price.

Jackfruit is another discovery that blows my mind: I knew… Continue reading Teriyaki Jackfruit

A lot of organic produce, specialist foods that you can only get from health shops which obviously charge a premium; exported foods… Continue reading The Friday Basket

Quick Easy Sweet Breakfast Bowl

I have no problem with breakfasts, they can just take a long time to make. I'm a Londoner, so that means jobs are easier to come by than in other parts of England, however, it also means I can underestimate distances and travel times because of the Tube. Transport in London really is a blessing,… Continue reading Quick Easy Sweet Breakfast Bowl
