Vegan Moroccan Tagine

As January comes to an end, so do all the bullshit diets.

So long Dry-nuary, vegan-uary and the rest of them, and all they accompanying hashtags.

You won’t be missed.

You know what doesn’t come to an end though?

The possibility to cook a fantastic meal that just happen to be vegan.

Because accidental vegan food is actually the best, and that all year round.

PB & J Porridge (VE, GF)

Breakfast food is the way to my heart.

Eggs any way, bread (all the bread!), full English, porridge… I love it all!

But, I love my bed even more.

That means that if I’m going to actually eat breakfast, it has to be super easy/quick to make because I’m not going to swap sleeping time for cooking time.

Which is the case for this PB & J porridge.

Creamy, nutty, filling, satisfying, accidentally vegan (!!) and suuuuuuuper quick to make, it’s the breakfast of dreams.

100% my jam!

My love for cake-inspired porridge is really no secret (see here, here and here).

But what can I say… If it tastes like pudding whilst actually having the nutritious values of the breakfast of champions, I just can’t resist it!

Indian Spiced Lentil Soup (Vegan)

November isn’t quite my favourite time of the year.

Weirdly enough, I’m not really into that whole ‘night time at 3 O’Clock with heavy risk of frozen rain’ situation.

But there definitely are some silver linings.

Like a big, hot, comforting cup of spiced lentil soup.

Indian Spiced Lentil Soup (Vegan) • Recipe • Cake + Whisky

Vegan, seasonal, hearty and very cheap, it’s packed with vitamins and good stuff.

You can make boatloads at a time (perfect for packed lunch and those evenings when you just want to collapse on the sofa and go on a Nexflix marathon!) and it’s super easy too!

Absolutely souper all round!

Gloomy days, heavy rain, freezing-despite-the-big-sweaters-and-socks weather… All the ingredients for a strong SAD scenario are in the air at the moment.

Woo-freaking-hoo.

Lemongrass & coconut panna cotta (vegan) • Recipe • Cake + Whisky

And as much as I wish I could escape to a sunny tropical island, that’s not going to happen for another month and a half (!!), so I have to make do with the content of my kitchen cupboard to create my own susnshine in the meantime.

Luckily, I have the perfect recipe for this exact situation – Lemongrass coconut panna cotta, topped with chilli roasted pineapple.

Light and creamy coconut set cream, topped with fragrant pineapple with a touch of heat from the chilli and a little zing from the lime… This panna cotta is just what the doctor ordered!

So, what are you waiting for?

Tropic like it’s hot!

The days are getting shorter.

The nights are getting longer.

And every day, it’s becoming a little bit harder to gather the strength to get out of bed as soon as the alarm rings.

But worry not – I know just the trick.

Exibit A – my banana bread porridge.

Classic Panzanella Salad (Vegan)

When I was a child, I would basically live on tomatoes alone for the entire summer.

Classic Panzanella Salad (Vegan, dairy free) • Recipe • Cake + Whisky

Both my parents and my grand-parents grow a vegetable garden, with tomatoes having place of pride, which means there would be a tomato glut from early July until late September.

I might not be partial but they’re the best tomatoes I’ve ever tasted and I would have them for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Much like an apple, still in my pyjamas and the first shoes I’d find for the former, simply drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with a pinch of fleur de sel the rest of the time.

Classic Panzanella Salad (Vegan, dairy free) • Recipe • Cake + Whisky

Truth be told, the classic panzanella salad is basically a fancy-name, glorified version of that simple salad.

One that also doubles as a delicious, clever way to use up bread that’s a bit past its best.

a.k.a. the dream for little bread-loving, waste-loathing Frenchie me.

Classic Panzanella Salad (Vegan, dairy free) • Recipe • Cake + Whisky

Panzanella is lovely served on its own with a glass of chilled rosé as a simple summer supper, but also works wonders as part of a picnic or BBQ spread.

You really can’t go wrong with it… Give it a try and I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do…

… from my head to-ma-toes!
