Miso Soup with Zucchini Noodles

misoOver the past few months I have been consuming very minimal animal products which has pushed me to get more creative with my meals. This is one of my favourite vegan meals because it’s delicious and It’s a great portable lunch option for work. Just put all the ingredients into a thermos, when you’re ready to eat it add hot water, give it a shake and you’re good to go.
I’ve also added some (non vegan) ingredients below that would go nicely with this recipe. Continue reading

This salad is so simple yet looks so pretty and as an added bonus tastes amazing! It’s the perfect dish to bring along to a dinner party if you want to impress friends but don’t have long to throw something together. If you feel the dressing might be a bit of pomegranate overkill a mixture of apple cider vinegar, tahini, olive oil and lemon would also go nicely with this.

Ingredients

Salad
4-5 zucchinis, thinly sliced lengthways (should be about 4-5 slices per zucchini, depending on how thick they are)
3 tbsp coconut oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Seeds from 1 pomegranate (leave 3 tbsp aside for the dressing)
3 big handfuls rocket
¾ cup almonds, crushed (optional)

Cauliflower & Leek Soup

soupCauliflower would have to be one of my favourite vegetables not just because it tastes great but also because it is so versatile. Don’t believe me? Just check out my recipes for cauliflower sushi, cauliflower tacos, kale & cauliflower TabooliButter chicken with cauliflower cream or my friend Maddy’s recipe for Cauliflower Couscous.

This soup is no exception in the taste department and it will leave you feeling full and satisfied after eating it. I put some kale and nori sheets under the grill then crushed them up and sprinkled them over the soup with some chicken strips. This worked really well but some fresh herbs and spices would also taste great on top.
