Crumble doesn’t always have to be a lengthy process. You can make a fairly quick and easy crumble if you’ve got some granola lying around. For this recipe I’ve chosen peaches for the filling, which needed using up in my fridge, but you can use any fruit that you have available. The same with the granola, if you’ve got some shop bought in your cupboard, then use that. If you don’t, or if you want to make your own, then here’s my Homemade Granola Recipe.
The only lengthy process to this is cooling down the fruit filling. If you can make this part the night before, then great. You will want at least 2 hours in the fridge, however, to get it cold enough to serve.
Prep time: 10 minutes. Cooking time: 10 minutes, plus chilling time.

1 heaped tbsp vegan butter
4-5 peaches, stoned and cut into pieces
½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
Small pinch chilli powder
About 240g granola (get my recipe here)
About 150ml vegan cream
Melt the butter in a small saucepan and add the peaches, sugar and spices. Cook for 10 minutes on a good simmer, until the peaches are soft and covered in a thick sauce. Allow to cool, and then chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
Put about 50g of granola into the bottom of a serving dish, spoon on a quarter of the chilled peaches, pour a quarter of the cream onto the peaches and then sprinkle a little more granola on top. Repeat this for 4 servings.
This is a great recipe if you have some leftover rhubarb in your garden, in addition to some fresh blueberries, available now in most supermarkets if you don’t grow them. It’s the kind of thing you can throw together late one evening, as it only requires the occasional stir. You can then leave it to…

You can get asparagus imported all year round in most supermarkets, but British asparagus has its growth season between May and July, with early appearance often at the end of April. Now is the perfect time to make use to these green spears in your everyday cooking. My choice for this recipe was to roast…
April 23rd marks the start of asparagus season and we are now starting to see British asparagus appear on the shelves. Young asparagus is a thin and tender vegetable that is perfect for cooking a variety of dishes. It cooks quickly, so you must keep an eye on it. The more mature plant is thicker…

To veganise something like Enchiladas now is incredibly easy with the variety of ingredients available in most supermarkets. For this one I have used fresh vegan mince, along with mushrooms and onions for the chilli base. Don’t worry if you don’t like eating vegan mince, you can always substitute this chilli for my Sweet Potato,…
I first tried this dish about 25 years ago, when my Spanish girlfriend made it for me in a bedsit we shared in North London back in the mid-nineties. It was cooked on one of those old Baby Belling stoves that you would often see in bedsits back in those days (they might still have…
