Sundried Tomato Pesto

I am throwing out another pasta recipe simple because I LOVE pasta. I could eat pasta everyday and be happy… every type of pasta.. pasta in soup, baked pasta, pasta salad and spaghettis! This is aΒ recipe you can literally throw in to any blender appliance and end up with a gorgeous creamy sauce. I used a Nutribullet for mine but it would also would with a food processor, regular blender or even a stick blender. Currently I am feeling like I want to celebrate the simple foods. Things that you can make quickly after 11 hours at work all day and still it will taste delicious and not be too bad for you. Things that are not impossible to make that week before pay day when you look into the contents of your cupboards and try to work out how to be creative with some rice, pasta, baked beans, dried herbs and if your lucky half a tin on tomatoes and some spinach in the fridge. I find within the vegan online community the lines …

Vegan Potato Gnocchi

Wow I cannot believe it has almost been a whole month since my last post! The last month has been absolutely crazy, going to sea, organising the ship, and now for the first time in months and months I am back on home soil in England. And this time permanently… or at least for a few years until I need to escape again. Its pretty exciting to be home and honestly can not wait to get more involved once again in some activism in the UK. There is so much need here for people to be active or for fundraising, especially for some animal sanctuaries that are barely hanging on. Take a look at my links page to see some awesome organisations in need of support… or maybe there’s a group in your area. I often feel there can be way, way too much focus within the vegan/vegetarian community on just the food/recipe aspect of vegan living and never enough focus on really being active within your community to generate change and directly help the …

Creamy Mushroom Fricasse

This is a recipe I have been meaning to record for a while now. It has always been one of those meals I make really quick last minute, when I don’t know what to make. it’s always once I have finished and I’m sat down eating that I realise once again I have forgotten to write the recipe as I go. This month of Vegan Mo Fo really kicked my ass into gear on recipe recording! This was definitely a favourite with the crew on board the bigger ships and something I would make at least every fortnight. Its also really versatile. In this recipe I have include wine in the ingredients… but if your not so big on cooking with alcohol it still tastes awesome without the wine, (just add extra olive oil in before you add the flour to create the roux.) I also like to mix up the veg I use, sometimes adding some broccoli at the end, it also works well adding tofu or seitan chunks in when you add the …
