Granola Bars (no added sugar)

Ok so a little bit of poetic licence here, but there is no processed sugar in these granola bars, and they taste amazing. They are very sweet because of the maple syrup and malt extract. I am a massive fan of maple syrup, and if you haven’t tried malt extract … Continue Reading

Vegan Pho style noodle soup

Vegan Pho

On a whim I bought some baby aubergines from the asian supermarket, they sat in the fridge for a few days until I had some peas in my weekly veg box and I thought I would pay homage to the Asian store and created this curry. It’s lovely and light … Continue Reading
