Vegan ‘Chicken’ Nuggets

This is a little something for kids and grown-ups alike. Sure, you can buy these already frozen in the supermarket, but nothing beats making them yourself. For one thing, you know exactly what’s going into them. It’s surprisingly easy to make a chicken substitute, but there is one ingredient you’ll need that you won’t find…

Cajun Spiced Broccoli Bites

I’d been mulling this idea over in the back of my mind for some time, while working on a host of other recipes. I’d seen plenty done with cauliflower in terms of seasoning with spices, and I wanted to try something with broccoli. I’ve always had a fondness for Cajun spice. There’s an earthy sweetness…

Homemade Yorkshire Puddings. Vegan and Gluten Free

I don’t mind telling you that this recipe has taken some experimentation to get right, so I’m quite excited to release it now. These are fully vegan, fully gluten-free Yorkshire puddings.

I made them intentionally out of things I had lying about the place: bananas, canned peaches, raisins and a bit of sugar. I also top them with some vegan custard…

Dad’s Potato Fritters

These aren’t strictly my father’s potato fritters, as he puts milk and eggs in the batter and uses regular flour. So, in truth, these are an adaptation. A vegan and gluten-free homage to something that would have me running around in glee as a child, knowing they would be for dinner that night. These are,…
