Festive Sausage Roll Wreath

Difficulty: Medium Serves 12 My Festive Sausage Roll Wreath is quite honestly one of the simplest vegan recipes for the Yuletide but is going to have the biggest impact. It’s a wreath, so it’s Christmassy. It’s meaty, so it’s a great centrepiece. And it’s wrapped in pastry, so it’s bloody delicious. You can use homemade pastry but in the name of convenience, I’ve just used store-bought (same goes for the cranberry sauce!) Note: Use refrigerated vegan mince, not frozen crumbles or TVP as it will not hold. For Australians, I find V2 works best in these types of recipes but I think Beyond, Alter ..read more

Candy Cane Ice Box Cake

2y ago
Difficulty: Easy Serves 8-10 I’m typically tasked with making dessert for our small family Christmas each year, and I’ve learned a couple of things in however many years I’ve been doing it. The first thing is that people are often so unbelievably stuffed by the time dessert rolls around, is that something super elaborate and/or heavy may not be the way to go (unless you’re doing a few desserts, then a selection is great!) And the second thing, is that you want a dessert you can prep at least a day in advance, that still wows your friends and family on the big day. My Candy Cane Ice Box Cake ..read more

Pea, Mint + Feta Salad

2y ago
Difficulty: Easy Serves 4 Traditionally, salads are served as a little joke at Christmas, to make us all think we give a damn about consuming an acceptable amount of greens on our day of days. The good news about my Pea, Mint + Feta Salad is that the joke is now on us because it tastes so good, you’ll be piling it up on your plate. Even better news? You can prepare most of it the day before and combine it all together on the day! Ingredients 2 cups frozen baby peas 2 cups Brussels sprouts 100g snow peas 1/4 bunch mint, finely chopped 1 block of vegan feta Dressing 1/8 cup olive oil Juice ..read more

Sesame Crusted Tofu Salad

Difficulty: Easy Serves 4 as a side Despite my best efforts, summer is on its way. One thing I don’t mind about warmer weather is all the fresh and light food that accompanies the season, so salads are well and truly back on the menu! My Sesame Crusted Tofu Salad is a simple recipe to make but tastes way more complex, thanks to the different textures and flavours of the ingredients. You’ll love whipping this one out at your next picnic or barbecue! Ingredients Salad 2/3 cup cashews 1 baby wombok (or half a regular-sized one), finely shredded 1 avocado 1 spring onion 1 small red chilli Tofu ..read more

Creamy Roasted Pumpkin Soup

Difficulty: Easy Serves 2 Do I like soup? Not really, but occasionally the mood for soup strikes and when it does, I lean in hard. My Creamy Roasted Pumpkin Soup is super spesh because it doesn’t use a saucepan or pot (yep, you read that right.) With an oven, blender and a handful of simple ingredients, you’re going to find yourself in a soupy heaven in under an hour. And what a soupy heaven it is! This is one of the only times I can recall where I have wished that I actually made more soup. Ingredients 1kg Kent pumpkin 6 garlic cloves, peeled 1 small brown onion, roughly chopped 1/4 cup o ..read more

Vegan Meatloaf

Meatloaf is a popular staple for a reason. The ingredients are cheap, it’s easy to make and it tastes just as good as leftovers as it does straight from the oven. Most importantly, it’s now vegan thanks to this recipe! Full of meaty goodness, this is a classic weeknight meal and if you manage not to eat it in one sitting, your next day sandwiches are going to be the envy of your class, office or Zoom meeting. Serve it with whatever you want but I’ve gone for steamed green beans and air-fried kalettes along with a healthy serving of gravy (I use Bisto if you’re wondering!) Note: It’s super imp ..read more

Welcome to the second instalment of my Skincare Diary series! To be honest, I had planned to update way sooner but you know, life always manages to get in the way. The timing is kind of perfect though, as we transitioned into the cooler months in Australia, my skincare routine changes to match. So, you’ll see quite a number of new discoveries compared to January’s edition! Cleansing I mentioned last time that I usually have at least 3 cleansers on the go at any given time, due to varied needs and the time of day I plan to use them.

If you’re after a premium vegan day out in the Hunter Valley, look no further than Margan in Broke.

Tempeh Bacon + Egg Roll

Difficulty: Easy Makes 4 Hungover or not, just try and beat a bacon and egg roll on a weekend morning. My Tempeh Bacon + Egg Roll pairs perfectly with a cup of strong coffee, hash browns and the trashiest show you can find. The smart ones among you will have the tempeh bacon and egg parts prepped in advance, so you only have to heat em up and slap them together in the morning. If you’re feeling extra dusty, you can replace the tempeh bacon with a store-bought vegan bacon of your choice. You may regret what you did last night but you simply won’t regret having these babies ready to go when yo ..read more
