Veg Medley

Obviously, I am vegan. I eat plants and although, I have to indulge in vegan meats from time to time, I have decided to dedicate today’s post of meat alternatives to be,well,vegan, as being vegan is the alternative to meat. I usually have my roast dinners, stacked full of veg and even though vegans meats…

Vegan Beef

This is another offering from Vbites, however this is Vegan Beef. I have chosen to cook mine in a rich red wine and gravy reduction and then place in vegan Yorkshires for the ulimate Xmas treat. I will be showing you how to make vegan Yorkshire puds in sides. Whether you decide to follow my lead…

Seed Roast

Well let me start off by saying that being vegan is awesome. There is no doubt it my mind, that I enjoy the Festive period so much more, now that I know no animals are harmed for my household to enjoy the season. Meat alternatives are great for the Xmas Dinner plate, they are reasonably…

Roast Sweet Potato

​Roasted Sweet Potato deserves to be served with your Xmas Day dinner, it is absolutely delicious when roasted, it is roasted the same way as our usual red potatoes, but has such a different texture and flavour. I will definitely be adding sweet potato to my Xmas Day dinner.  As the method is the same…

Baby Roasted Potatoes

​Baby Roasted Potatoes are awesome, especially when they are cooked with tonnes of garlic. The skin on approach is different to a regular roast potato and almost forms a midway between a roast and a jacket.  These potatoes are great to serve at parties, in a huge bowl, with a wedge of melted vegan spread…

Almond Milk Mash

​​Today, I’m not going to be thinking too far outside the box with mash, however, it is such a great thing to have in the fridge, to assist left overs, to feed the unexpected guests and also to serve as a tasty addition to the Xmas day meal.  Almond milk mash is amazing! I know lots…

Perfect Roast Potatoes

​Every roast dinner, which essentially is what an Xmas day dinner is, needs potato. It goes without saying that a roast potato needs to feature on the plate somewhere, however, there is no reason why you can’t explore other forms of potato on your plate, on Xmas day or any other day in the festive…

Loaded Sweet Potatoes

​Loaded Sweet Potato Skins are a great starter anytime of the year, but when its the Festive period, they look fantastic and taste even better, stuffed with leeks and cheese, all vegan of course.  I like mine to be really messy and heaped with the filling, if you wish for it to be slightly more…

Leek + Potato Soup

Well, it wouldn’t be winter without Leek + Potato soup, this recipe only has 5 ingredients. It can be made the night before and put in the fridge, so it’s great for dinner parties or just a healthy hot meal for when you get in from a long day. This recipe serves 4 as a starter portion…
