Belated Hummus Wishes

Today was International Hummus Day!
I don’t know about you, but for me, hummus is pretty much it’s own food group.
It goes Fruits, Vegetables, Protein, Carbohydrates, Fats, and Hummus, right?
So when I found out that there was a day dedicated to Hummus, I just knew I had to get involved!

Vegan MOFO – Day 3 – Creamy cashew cheesy-dip

Hello fellow MOFO-ers! I had intended on doing a nice long blog post today about the wonders and joys of cashew cheese (cue trumpet fan-fare and confetti). But alas, moving got in the way, and what with packing, cleaning and working (again!) I’m now getting very close to running out of day.. I really do need to start writing these things earlier on!

Quick Fruity Salsa

I love Mexican food. The freshness, the zing, the spice. You just can’t beat it. Which is why I was a little annoyed when I realised that today was Cinco de Mayo, and I didn’t have a recipe prepared to share with you all! Oops! So here is a very quick, simple recipe for a zingy, fruity salsa!

Rawmus! Raw hummus recipe!

Just a quick post for you all today! The other day, I fancied something a little more interesting to add to my salad than just veg..

Up until now, the main thing I’ve been eating which isn’t raw is hummus. There is just something so addictive about the simple blend of beans, garlic, lemon and tahini.. so much so, that I never thought anything could take it’s place.

Then, something came over me, and I decided to attempt a raw version at last..

And the results were fantastic!

Purple Goddess Dressing

Sometimes, a recipe will take weeks, maybe even months, and occasionally years to perfect. You’ll start off with an idea, or a vague notion of what might work. And you play around with it, tweaking it here and there, until finally you end up with what you dreamed up all those many days ago….

That isn’t what happened here.

Sudden inspiration..

Super simple strawberry smush! (aka – Jam!)

Hello lovelies! Good god it’s been a while since my last post hasn’t it? Life has been rather busy lately!
I spent over a month working with my parents in Wales. I generally help them out with their business from 9-5, then cook lunch (yes, Lunch at 5!), stop for a little break, and then spend the evening working on my own orders!

Then 1am rolls around and I realise I haven’t written about that recipe I made over a month ago, or written reviews about restaurants in Brighton….

But when I walk past this view to go work every morning..  the longs hours really don’t matter! Continue reading

Icecream & Phummus

This may be an alien notion to some, but I’m actually not the biggest fan of ice cream. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I do like the stuff. But I generally find it’s a bit too rich for me. One or two bites and I’m done! Now sorbet on the other hand, I rather love.
Light, fruity and refreshing, what’s not to like? My favourite simple-sorbet is simply freeze raspberries and sliced peaches, and then blend them together.

Simple, sweet, and good for you too!
On my recent trip to Brighton, when I asked around for places I had to visit, one place which popped up was Boho Gelato, where we were told we could get some really nice vegan sorbets…

Basil & Almond Pesto – And a birthday!

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been The Birthday Fairy. (A bit confusing perhaps, seeing as though this is Pixie Produce, but hey, on Sunday’s I’m a Unicorn, and I’ve always been crazy about dragons – I’m a whole fairy-tale rolled into one)

Speaking of Fairy Tales, there really is something magical about fresh basil...
