Hi, I'm Elle

Winter isn’t exactly a time of year that has me craving light, fresh, salads, but I still want to eat my greens! When I’m not having cooked meals, I want my salads to be hearty and delicious. A mix of quinoa, almonds and pistachios make this otherwise green salad feel much more substantial. This quinoa […]

Nutty Quinoa Salad

This is one of my favourite recipes to date. A twist on the classic chocolate chip cookie without trying to turn it into something it isn’t. White spelt flour gives a subtle nuttiness whilst still being light and fluffy, and dark chocolate matches that rich flavour. They went down an absolute treat both at work […]

Vegan spelt chocolate chip cookies

I’m perhaps still running on Bake Off fever from a few weeks ago, but I’m definitely feeling the the need to make comforting desserts. This fondant recipe uses a filling to create a gooey centre rather than being a “true” fondant that keeps the centre unset. Both are delicious, but this version allows you to […]

Chocolate coconut jam-filled fondant

Peanut butter cups combine two of my favourite things: nut butter and chocolate. In the new Deliciously Ella cookbook, there is a spin on the classic PB, with a granola base. I’ve adapted this recipe to include a pumpkin twist that I hope you enjoy! Pumpkin Peanut Butter Granola Cups Recipe Type: Dessert Author: Elle […]

Pumpkin Peanut Butter Granola Cups

Last year I made a butternut squash soup on a near weekly basis for a good month or so, with the intention of nailing the perfect recipe. Done right, gourds can make the most incredible tasting soups, stews and dishes, but done wrong they can be a little bland. I’ve been whizzing squash into pasta […]

Coconut squash soup with lentils

October has been a bit of a topsy turvy month, but there has been a definite chill in the air of late, which means time to bring out the hot chocolate again. At the start of the year, I had the most amazing, rich and vegan friendly hot chocolate at Dark Sugars down Brick Lane […]

Pistachio and cardamon hot chocolate

Now that I’ve recovered from the shock of the summer heatwave suddenly disappearing, I have very happily moved onto an autumn mindset. Porridge has started to return to my breakfast, although I’m still having muesli and granola-based bowls more often than not. I hardly ever remember to prep breakfast the night before though, so I’ve […]

Cranberry and Pecan Instant Bircher

I have been wanting to share this recipe with you for so long! Ever since I tried Lahmacun at What the Pitta in Shoreditch during January it has been on my mind all the time. Lahmacun is often dubbed as “Turkish pizza” thanks to its bread base. Traditionally it is baked with spiced ground pork […]

Vegan Turkish Lahmacun Flatbreads

Between gifts from relatives and treating myself to Riverford Organic veg boxes, my kitchen has been full of seasonal veg. Maybe its the abundance of produce, or maybe I’m just pretending that I live somewhere more Mediterranean, but I’ve been feeling pretty inspired. One of my favourite dishes of the moment has been a summer […]

Summer greens risotto

Summer greens risotto

There are few things better than a perfectly ripe peach in summer. I almost didn’t bother to incorporate peaches into a recipe as they’re so perfect on their own. However, there’s such a glut of peaches and nectarines available at the moment that there’s been plenty for both eating and baking with -very much a […]
