Vegan Smoky BBQ Farfalle

Coming up with quick, easy, repeatable weeknight meals that don’t contain meat or dairy can be a massive ballache. It’s a large contributer to why I haven’t taken the plunge into actual proper vegan yet. Therefore, whenever I happen upon one, I’ll do my level best to share it with you. This vegan cheesy pasta from back in January is dinner for me at least twice a week, so be sure to bookmark that one too if you share in my plant based dinner inspiration struggles. This recipe yields enough for one portion for you for dinner tonight and three portions boxed up in tupperware for work – all for well under a fiver. One of the major positives to chilling out on the meat and dairy front. Notes on ingredients: If you’ve never used Old El Paso fajitas mix outside of its meal kit context before, you haven’t lived. That stuff is like gold dust, and deserves its own place in the kitchen cupboard alongside your other staple spices. The best vegan mince I’ve tried …

Pulled Pumpkin from ‘How to Eat Brilliantly Every Day’

Abel and Cole have just published a new recipe book and it’s been lighting up all the right bits in my brain like a Christmas tree (too soon, I know, but I am who I am). ‘How to Eat Brilliantly Every Day’ is sectioned up into each of the four seasons and I’ve been pouring over the autumn and winter pages like they’re the answer to life, the universe and everything. For me to have cooked three recipes from one book in less than a month is a big deal. This never happens. I’m smitten for reals. The book is predominantly vegetarian – or at least, it’s always making the vegetable the star. This is the kind of forward thinking recipe development that I adore, and obviously is incredibly appropriate coming from Abel & Cole, everyone’s favourite veg box guys. There’s something so cosy and inviting about it, and it really is so rare for me to flick through a recipe book and earmark so many of the pages for future cooking. It’s absolutely chock …

Cheap Dates in Brighton | 2-4-1 Burgers at Little Blue Smokehouse @ The Southover

Update: heartbreakingly, Little Blue Smoke are no longer operating at The Southover, so this deal is no longer applicable – you can find them at Hare and Hounds! Brighton is fast becoming London 2.0, whether we like it or not. That means that date night is getting more expenive by the day, and it can be tricky to keep up. I’m all about a bargain, and I’ve made it my mission to find you the best deals in town so that you don’t have to bankrupt yourself to hang with your other half. The only rule is that the date can only cost a maximum of £10 per head, the rest is all to play for. I’ve featured Little Blue Smokehouse previously on this here corner of the internet back when I was all excited over their PB&J fries at their Seven Stars residence. They’re now a permanent fixture at The Southover, which is not quite as accessible if you’re coming in from out of town (it’s up in the residential area of Hanover) but …
