OMG-so-good vegan biscuits & sausage gravy

We’ve been vegan for a good number of years now and, living in The South, we have an affection for biscuits and sausage gravy.

This calorie-laden carb-fest is usually served at breakfast or brunch, but I’d be lying if I said we didn’t just have this for dinner…

Biscuits and gravy is something that we’ve tried numerous incarnations of since becoming vegan and have always convinced ourselves that there’s a few recipes which are good and rival the conventional ones, but it wasn’t until I put this dish together tonight that I realised I was lying to myself all this time. This recipe is out of this world and is easily the best biscuits and gravy we’ve ever had, vegan or otherwise.

Getting out of my food rut with a spicy Buddha bowl

Marti and I tend to get into ruts every once in a while where we end up eating the same things night upon night, completely uninspired. Taking advantage of a few days off of work and a little extra time on our hands, we branched out and tried something new: a Spicy Buddha Bowl.

I was absolutely blown away by it, like I so rarely am and truly, it wasn’t all that hard or time-consuming to make. Packed with flavour and nutrients, it was an easy choice to do again, so just two days after our first one, we made another tonight, except that we doubled up on the sauce for the beans and we used cannellini beans instead of chickpeas.

I’ll be coming back to this again and again, not least because a little change here or there and you’ve got a completely new dish. Gives me fond memories of going to Prasad 3 or 4 times for lunch on our 10-day trip to Portland a few years ago.

Light and fluffy vegan blueberry pancakes

Made these for Martina one morning and we were thankful that we made all 16, because we boshed the lot that very morning!

These are so delicious, better than any other pancakes I’ve had before (vegan or otherwise), and better still, there’s no artery-clogging ingredients, so you can sleep easy at night. Here’s how to make them:

Crispy Chicken and Mandarin Salad

Martina and I found a recipe a few weeks ago, slightly tweaked it for ourselves and what we have is this incredible salad, that’s very good for you and that we don’t tire of. Here goes:
