Ginger Satay Sweet Potato Noodles

I’m so excited about this recipe! I made it for lunch the other day and it was too good not to share. It’s made using spiralized sweet potato noodles which are great if you’re following a gluten-free or just trying to up your veggie intake. Rice noodles would work great in this as well if you don’t have a spiralizer. The noodles are tossed with sauteed mushrooms, peas and corn then coated in a fresh creamy ginger satay sauce. This recipe is a perfect weeknight meal as its so easy to throw together and uses only 7 ingredients and a few pantry staples. I love to make a double batch of satay sauce and use the leftovers as a dipping sauce for rice paper rolls or pour over stir-fried veggies. I’ve added a link so you can download or print the recipes. Just click the print recipe link and a pdf version will pop up in a new window. Let me know what you think. Ginger Satay Sweet Potato noodles            …

Hong Kong Food Guide

In March, I went on a quick 5 day trip to Hong Kong with a couple of my girlfriends. It was such an amazing holiday and I was pleasantly surprised with the vegan / vegetarian food options over there I thought I would share some of my favourite spots to grab a bite. These are probably old news for anyone who gets to Hong Kong regularly but handy for newbies planning a trip, especially if your vegan or vegetarian. Finding places to eat on holiday can be tricky for anyone but we were travelling with 2 vegetarians and 1 gal with a nut allergy. Yikes! Chinese food is typically meat heavy and doused in peanut oil so naturally, I was a little sceptical about eating out. But it was a breeze eating pretty much anywhere. It was harder trying to find somewhere to grab dinner without a booking than it was finding veggie options. All of the restaurants we ate at had loads of vegetarian options and were happy to make the dishes nut free. …

Gooey Black Bean Brownies

These black bean brownies really hit the spot when you craving something chocolatey. It sounds a bit weird mixing black beans into your brownies but when they’re blended with the coconut cream and cacao powder they make the most indulgent gooey brownie. Who wouldn’t love that? The black beans give you an extra boost of fibre, protein and minerals like iron and copper. These brownies are great on there own but I love to finish them off with a creamy tahini and chocolate frosting. Black Bean Brownies Makes 8 -10 brownies Ingredients For the brownies 2 cups of black beans 1/2 cup of  natural coconut cream, from a can 3/4 cup cacao powder 3 tablespoons of coconut oil, melted 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, soaked in 6 tablespoons of water 1/4 cup of coconut sugar or maple syrup 1 teaspoon of vanilla pinch of salt For the frosting 2 tablespoons of tahini, coconut cream and cacao powder 1 tablespoon of coconut oil coconut sugar to taste Method Frist get your can of natural coconut cream …
