EASY VEGAN CAULIFLOWER CURRY IN COLLABORATION WITH TESCO (AD)

EASY VEGAN CAULIFLOWER CURRY IN COLLABORATION WITH TESCO (AD)

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for Tesco. All opinions expressed in this blog post are my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.

When a supermarket wants to do all it can to help YOU try and enjoy eating more vegan and vegetarian food, I want to do all I can to ensure you get to know about it. That's why I am delighted to team up with Tesco this week who have developed a range of delicious, affordable and easy vegan recipes just for you. The best part? You don't need to go to a fancy health food store to buy the required ingredients. Instead you can just hop over to Tesco's where you'll find all you need to get stuck in and put a healthy, gorgeous meal on the table in less than an hour. That's because Tesco's have an array of fresh fruit and veg as well as vegetarian staples like beans, tofu, herbs and spices available in store waiting for you to take them home. Awesome, right?!

VEGAN RADISH SOUP IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ALLAND & ROBERT (P, V+, GF, NF, GrF)

QUICK, EASY, VEGAN PART 3 – As you know from this blog post as well as this one, I'm sharing some quick, easy and delicious vegan recipes on the blog this month seeing we're all in the throws of buying last minute Christmas presents (which we should have bought AGES ago, but let's not go there) and have very little time to spend making complicated meals.

But rest assured that despite its simplicity, this beautiful radish and parsnip soup is utterly delicious, comforting and healthy. It's been made extra special by a secret ingredient called acacia gum. Acacia what?! Chances are you've never heard of it before but I hope today's blog post will change that because it's an ingredients worth knowing about!

QUICK, EASY, VEGAN Part 2 - Hi everyone! As I mentioned in last week's blog post, I'll be sharing some quick and easy vegan recipes on the blog between now and the end of the year just cuz we're all SO busy in the run up to Christmas and the last thing we need is to be stuck in the kitchen, am I right?!

Apart from sharing the recipe for this delicious, healthy and seasonal spiced orange smoothie with you today, I'm also hosting a giveaway of a cookbook entitled NEW YORK CHRISTMAS. It was written by food bloggers and food photographers Liz and Jewels whose lovely recipes will surely get you into the Christmas spirit! Now before you get to hear about how YOU can win yourself a copy, shall I tell you a bit about what the book is like?

QUICK, EASY, VEGAN! Part 1 - May I present you with the best vegan muffins I have EVER made? Now, please don't take my word for it, but instead ask the man and the boy in my life, our neighbours, their children, plus the guys at BBC World Service. See they ALL gulped these muffins down like there was no tomorrow and begged me to make more! I made 48 in total in the space of a week, insane isn't it?! But it kinda worked for me cuz I hade A LOT of Halloween pumpkin left-overs to use up ;). Know what I'm sayin'!!!

Anyway, I feel this muffin recipe will work really well for those of you celebrating Thanksgiving - as a sort of Thanksgiving breakfast treat kinda thing - as well as those of you who just dig pumpkins, full stop. Once baked, these muffins can be eaten on the spot or frozen to be enjoyed throughout the weeks to come. Whatever works for you!

I am rather happy working on my own. Thing is, I like my own company. But when all is said and done, I'm a super sociable person, so when Aimee from Twigg Studios suggested we do a another collaboration and inviteSilvia from Salvia + Limone too I was totally game. The result of bringing our creative minds and hands together is today's delicious and (if I may say so myself) GORGEOUS vegan butternut squash ravioli recipe. Despite appearances, it SO easy to make and the perfect recipe for this time of the year.
