Pasta Mushroom Balls on a bed of tomato sauce.

Who says vegans can’t have fresh pasta! (Not us, and when I mean us I mean vegans). A lot of fresh pasta out there in the supermarkets are either egg washed or the fillings are filled with cheese, chicken or any other manner of none-vegan trickery. This dish offers you the experience of fine dining…

This is just ONE of MANY types of dishes vegans enjoy at Christmas. Because it is the Christmas period this…

Falaful Bolognase

Falafels are in my opinion a culinary genius invention of the vegan ‘meatball’. If I don’t use them in either wraps or buns I make a mean ‘meatball’ falafel Bolognese, a twist to a classic. What are falafels made of? Well in its basis for its made up from chickpeas, basil, olive oil and garlic…

Vegan Gym Enthusiast

Brussels, Belgium Between the 14th and 17th of October I travelled to the country of Belgium, specifically the capital Brussels. To accompany me were two of my friend’s, one that I met from Uni and her friend whom I have met and befriended. Originally we wanted to go to Paris, a city I loved and…
