Lazy Vegan Recipe: Seasonal Veg Risotto

It’s Monday again already? I’m pretty sure last time I blinked it was Friday evening and I was ready for a relaxing weekend! But one good thing about Mondays is that I get to talk about food, and share one of my lazy vegan recipes, so it’s not all that bad!

While eating out yesterday in a popular Italian restaurant (mentioning no names…) I noticed that, while vegetarian options are now widely available, cheese seems to be the star of the show in almost every dish. But as a vegan – who used to be a massive cheese fiend – I now see that this very fattening flavour enhancer can easily be swapped for garlic, chilli oil or fresh herbs; leaving the dish just as flavoursome (and  WAY healthier).

Lazy vegan Recipe: Seasonal Asparagus & Pistachio Salad

As this week marks the end of the short asparagus season, I thought it only right to make the delicious vegetable the star of this week’s meat free Monday recipe.  And with all this glorious sunshine bringing the UK some much needed heat, I’d say we’ve stepped into salad season!

This salad is super quick to knock up and is jam packed with all the nutrients you need to add a summer spring to your step!

Lazy Recipe: Vegan Mushroom and Lentil Burgers

Well, happy Meat free Monday lazy green people!!

This weekend has been a bit of a crazy one and I have to admit that I’ve really not done much in the way of advancing my “going green” journey. But it was filled with surfing, running, yoga and coastal walks; so at least I wasn’t my usual lazy self!

Speaking of which, I thought I would share another one of my magic recipes; which is easy, quick (vegan of course) and once made, makes up several meals in advance. Continue reading Lazy Recipe: Vegan Mushroom and Lentil Burgers

Lazy Recipe: Olive, Sundried Tomato, Pinenut & Basil VeganPizza

“When the moon hits your eye, Like a big pizza pie, that’s amore. When the world seems to shine, Like you’ve had too much wine, that’s amore!”

Its meat free Monday lazy green people! And what better way to celebrate than a big slice of delicious Vegan pizza?! Providing you’re not too greedy with the slices, missing out the cheese makes this a much healthier version of the old classic!

Hope you all had lovely lazy bank holiday weekends, with a healthy balance of fun and rest! Now, I must admit I have put my green living journey on the back burner these last few days to concentrate on relaxing, sleeping and eating…but I promise I am back on it this week!

So to ease us back in to the week, I thought I would share this scrummy vegan fruit crumble cake recipe; which is surprisingly delicious hot with custard or as a cold lunchtime treat. Continue reading Lazy Recipe: Vegan Fruit crumble cake

Lazy recipe: Tofu satay with Purple Sprouting broccoli

Happy meat free Monday lazy green people!

As Monday always feels like the longest day of the week, and when you get home you aren’t always in the mood to cook, I thought I would share a favourite easy vegan recipe of mine. And the best thing is, this recipe serves about 4 people; so if there are less of you, you have a whole other meal ready for you to have another day!

Lazy recipe: Easy Toasted nutty & seeded Granola

Not usually one for following recipes; I never really have the patience to follow something step-by-step, and usually end up free-styling and making it up. But…last week my friend told me she had made her own granola, and it actually sounded very easy to do. In fact, what I love is the fact you really don’t need to follow any strict ingredient list, and can add anything you have lying around in the cupboard. You literally just chuck in what you fancy!
