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. …

Bangin Beetroot Falafel

  Beetroots are one of my favourite vegetables to eat this time of year. Their earthy and sweet flavour makes them a perfect choice for winter meals. Beets are also remarkably versatile, you can serve them simply roasted with cumin and black pepper, grated raw and added to a slaw with a lemony dressing or blended into a thick chickpea hummus. For this recipe, I’ve created a bit of a beetroot love triangle combining all 3 of my favourite cooking techniques into one delicious magenta falafel. Raw beets are blended with chickpeas, fresh coriander and cumin, formed into patties, coated in sesame seeds and baked until crispy.

The earthy spicy flavours of the sauce taste amazing with the falafel and the colours look incredible together as well. These are great to make when you have friends coming round for dinner. You can lay them out mezze style and everyone can make their own veggie kebab. They are also a great …

Chilli, Zucchini & Kale Cauliflower Pizza

Pizza is one of those takeaway meals that everyone loves. The crispy bread base topped with savoury tomato sauce and gooey cheese mmmm it’s a real crowd pleaser. Sometimes the takeaway version can leave you a little bit worse for wear and If you’re like me and don’t react well to gluten then pizza is off the menu. But a life without pizza isn’t a life worth living! So I’ve been experimenting with gluten-free bases and this cauliflower number is the best yet. I know it sounds completely mad using cauliflower for a pizza base but it is amazing. The raw cauliflower is blended into a “rice” then mixed with chickpea flour, chia seeds and dried oregano. As the base cooks the cauliflower turns golden brown and crisp on the outside and soft in the middle and has the most delicious savoury flavour. perfect or pizza! I like to keep my pizza simple and only use a few toppings. My favourite at the moment is a pizza Bianca using a  cashew cheese sauce topped with zucchini, chilli, …
