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. Wrapped up in a warm flatbread and drizzled with a turmeric, tahini and yoghurt sauce. 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 …

Green Dream Sandwiches

One of my new years resolutions was to get out and explore more. I set my self a goal of going somewhere new at least once a month but I’ve become so addicted to visiting new places i’ve been  heading out each week on my days off. One thing i look forward to when i head out on an adventure is lunch. Obviously. There aren’t many (any) healthy plant based food option at gas stations or road houses so i’ve been packing up lunch boxes to tie me over until i get back home. Sandwiches are my go to meal  when I’m heading out for the day and these green dream sandwiches are my favourite! I love the combiation of grilled zucchini, herby pesto and creamy avo sandwiched between to slices of fluffy bread. I add tempeh or tofu to my sandwiches to fill them out but you can tag team them with grilled mushrooms or eggplant.  These sandwiches are a great lunch box filler. They travel well and you can combine them with a few …
