Hi, I'm Elle

Still have leftover pumpkin from October? This recipe is a great twist on the classic to use up leftovers. I like to serve it tear and share style rather than cut in traditional discs. Recipe adapted from Delicious Magazine. Ingredients 200g pumpkin or squash, peeled and chopped 40g vegetable spread or butter 175g self raising […]

Savoury pumpkin scones

Kombucha has really exploded onto the scene as a healthy drink option -quite literally if you’ve ever opened a bottle that’s been shook up! It’s on the more expensive side to buy, as with so many products in the wellness market, and you’re potentially limited in your flavours. Whilst I still enjoy buying bottled kombucha, […]

Kombucha home brewing guide

This week has brought me back to uni, which means fresh stationary, a new timetable and packed lunches. As well as a savoury meal, its lovely to have a box of sweeter snacks to choose from. Fruity, nutty muffins are deliciously satisfying, and a bit of Sunday baking will have you set up for the […]

Almond Butter and Blueberry Muffins (vegan)

There’s nothing like a comforting curry for winter evenings. The flavours are an alternative to more traditional Christmas fare in January. I’m especially fond of coconut curries at the moment. The creamy, rich coconut pairs beautifully with spice and heat of the curry. A serving of this curry contains at least three of your five […]

Squash Coconut Curry

Food waste accounts for 8% of carbon emissions according to a UN study*. I’m always seeking to reduce my food waste, from being savvy when buying veg to making use of leftovers and making stock from scraps. I do however like to make juice at home, which produces a not unreasonable amount of pulp that […]

Carrot pulp granola

If you watched or read my kitchen tour last week, you might have spotted an unusual looking tin in one of my cupboards. Jackfruit is an ingredient that is becoming increasingly popular in both home cooking and restaurant menus. A plant-based alternative to pulled meats, jackfruit is a tropical fruit related to figs and mulberries. […]

Walnut and jackfruit tacos

These cookies were made after struggling to get a hold of Prets dark chocolate and almond butter cookies. Due to risk of contamination with non vegan products, the cookies have jumped on and off Prets menu for the last year and have recently been reinstated without the vegan label. If you cant get the cookies […]

Vegan chocolate almond butter cookies

If you’ve never had a blondie before, sit down because you are in for a treat. Named for their similar texture to brownies, but not necessarily needing to be made from chocolate (hence the lighter colour and subsequent name), which gives you more versatility in flavour. I’m going through a bit of a coconut phase […]

Coconut blondies with almond butter

Perhaps it is the warmer weather or perhaps it is the packets of Purely Elizabeth and Perfect Provender (made by my lovely friend Jodie!) that have been in my pantry recently, but I’ve been on a granola kick of late. I’m always chasing that perfect crunchy granola and my latest go-to recipe includes coconut, dried […]

Coconut and blueberry granola

I’m really enjoying making cookies at the moment. Over the years, M&S all-butter almond and pistachio biscuits have made a frequent appearance in my parent’s house. I wanted to make a vegan-friendly version that had a proper fudge-y texture to them. It took a couple of attempts, but I’m really happy with how these have […]
