The triple-c curry as I like to call it, but I didn’t think that was too catchy for a recipe name?! I’m really getting into comfort food right now, with the drop in temperature, the dark evenings and feeling the fresh air as you step outside. This curry is one of those dishes that you … Continue reading Chickpea Carrot and Chard Red Thai Curry
I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with eggs. As a toddler I loved hard-boiled egg and soliders (or shoulders as I would call them). But never scrambled eggs, fried eggs were gross and it was only throughout the last year of uni that I discovered poached eggs. So ‘giving up’ eggs when I learnt about … Continue reading Easy Veganuary Habits and Hacks: Eggs

I have always been aware that while I am truly loving all the support and inspiration I find in the food and wellness social media network, not everyone I engage with is vegan, vegetarian or in the mindset of creating a plant-based lifestyle. That said, I am often overwhelmed by the support. For example, at … Continue reading Easy Veganuary Habits and Hacks: Dairy I

Because, well, what more is there to say about the humble … Continue reading Homemade Mince Pies
London's first all-avo dining concept began life as a pop-up. It took off and now has a permanent site. Avobar does pretty much what it says on the tin – it’s a restaurant where everything on the menu has avocado in it, on it or blended into it. It’s the perfect green homage to the … Continue reading A Nourishing Review: Avobar, Covent Garden
With a knowledge of the Italian language, it still makes me chuckle that ‘biscotti’ in every other language refers to this particular type of sweet treat, whereas ‘biscotti’ literally translates to mean ‘biscuits’. The Italian call these type of crunchy biscuit cantuccini which I think sounds much more exotic and enticing, don’t you agree? Nevertheless, … Continue reading Orange and Cranberry Almond Biscotti

Inspired by our love for granola and our obsession with my new crunchiest ever granola: Chai Spiced Walnut Granola, it was actually my Dad who suggested I make bars or bites with the mix. He is a big granola fan and as soon as he said these clusters would be great as bars, I had … Continue reading Chocolate, Chia and Mixed Nut Granola Bites
Soup season is officially here. Those days when all you crave for lunch is a bowl of soup to warm you through and the dark comes around all too quickly. Instead on focusing on the negatives, there are many things to celebrate that come with the cooler seasons.

I don’t think I have ever made a chunkier, crunchier and downright chai-ier granola in my life. This is hands down a new favourite when I’m after those satisfying big clusters. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t look through the freshly made batch to hunt out the biggest clusters and then devour them before anyone else … Continue reading Chai Spiced Walnut Granola
These cookies are next level cosiness. One of these with a cup of tea will put all your problems at bay for a moment, while you enjoy the most moreish cookie I think I’ve made to date.

It’s Halloween which can only mean one thing: it’s time for some spook-tacular baking! I toyed around with a few ideas of what to bake, make or raw-bake to celebrate the ghoulish day and saw that a lot of recipes required many ingredients and often those which were very artificial. I didn’t want to use … Continue reading Peppermint Green (S)Creams
The seasons are definitely changing and with the longer nights, shorter light hours and cooler weather, comes a shift in eating habits. While I still do enjoy a colourful vegetable packed quinoa salad or a crunchy kale salad, the evenings have me craving warming bowls of stews or curries. Both are a great way to … Continue reading New Potato, Red Lentil and Coconut Curry
Birthday cakes! For years, I have been put in charge of the birthday cakes in my family, long gone are the Colin the Caterpillar days along with the sickly-sweet Victoria sponge cakes layered with fake jam and yellow buttercream. Can you tell I have a slight aversion to these types of cake? I just think, … Continue reading Carrot and Raisin Bundt Cake

After enjoying some delicious smoothies recently at plant-based cafes, I … Continue reading Cookie Dough Smoothie
I may not be the world’s biggest cheese fan, but when it comes to cream cheese, well that’s another story.

There are … Continue reading Tofu Cream Cheese plus Artichoke and Chilli Cheese Dip
Be you. Do you. For you. Love you. If you type in “just do you quotes” into google, you will be faced with hundreds, if not thousands, of ‘motivational’ quotes to be yourself because, quite rightly so, there is only ONE YOU out there. With everyone else busy being themselves, why interrupt your being by … Continue reading Just Do You

With wooden beams across the ceiling, … Continue reading A Nourishing Review: Chia Naturally Healthy
This is the ultimate comfort food – a tomato-based and vegetable-packed stew with added peanut butter. Have you tried peanut butter in curries and warm dishes before? Notwithstanding my numerous peanut satay sauces, I was a bit wary (despite my love for the nutty stuff) but I am totally sold because of this recipe. This … Continue reading Sweet Potato and Tomato Peanut Butter Stew
Allow me to let you all in on a little secret: this post makes me feel like I’ve sort of made it, ever so slightly, in the food blogging world. My favourite inspirations often share reviews of upcoming cookbook releases either by friends or strangers and I think “wow, they must be big for so-and-so … Continue reading The Perfect Pasta Salad and The Vegan 8 Cookbook
What’s a Bronut, I hear you ask? A delicious brownie-donut fusion of course! Created in Cheshire by the immensely talented Emma at Soul Vegan Brownies. A self-confessed chocoholic, she initially created her drool-worthy range of brownies to share her love for cruelty free baking – showing you can indulge yourself without causing any harm and … Continue reading A Nourishing Review: Soul Vegan Bronuts
I’m feeling rather pleased with myself as I write this, I must say, and for several reasons. Although, the main one being that my meat-eating family love this dish and from looks alone you cannot tell this isn’t regular meaty mince. On the taste, they said you can tell it’s plant-based but that this was … Continue reading Sunflower Mince and Kidney Bean Chilli
I’m not the biggest fan of the cold weather, but one thing I do love about the cool, crisp mornings is the instant satisfaction at making and enjoying a bowl of porridge. The comforting sensation as the oats warm you from the inside out, filling you nicely to last through a busy morning. The fibrous … Continue reading Pear, Ginger and Date Porridge
Cornbread is definitely an American traditional element to the festive season and about this time of year, my social media feeds are chock full of sweet yet savoury breads. Before last year I had never tried cornbread, believe it or not?! Although, I don’t think that’s unusual living here in the UK. It’s not something … Continue reading Vegan Black Bean and Sweet Corn Bread
I am all aboard the comfort food train at the moment, what with the cooling weather conditions and the shorter daylight hours. My body is craving something warming but equally nutritious and vegetable packed. This recipe is like a hug in a bowl.

From original single nut butters … Continue reading A Nourishing Review: Nutural World
With Autumn in full swing, it is now time we shift our monthly intentions to 'focus' on our new theme: Focus. “We have incredible powers of focus, although we don’t always choose to use them. Think of how we tend to view a leaf, maybe just observing its general colour and shape. But try looking … Continue reading Every Day Matters: October
I am posting this colourful bowl in time to still celebrate Organic September. Have you joined in at all?

Rich, tender and indulgent brownies coming at you. Like, now. I am so impressed with this recipe – if I don’t say so myself.

There are so many plant-based milks available in the shops today and I am so grateful for the huge variety we have. It does make trying out all of them a little pricey and, sure, there will be a few hits and misses along the way, as they all taste very different. From sweet hazelnut … Continue reading Hemp and Blueberry Chia Pudding with Caramelised Banana
More is always more I say, when it comes to a chocolate drizzle, wouldn’t you agree? These tasty little treats came to me one afternoon when I whipped out the mixing bowl and threw a few ingredients together without much of an idea in mind. I had recently watched an episode of The Great British … Continue reading Chocolate Almond Salted Caramel Thumbprint Cookies
This makes a great sauce option to drizzle over fresh and fluffy pancakes, to smear onto toasted bread, to stir into a yoghurt and granola bowl or to top and melt into a warm bowl of porridge. The possibilities are endless. And, because it uses only the sweetness from the dates, it doesn’t taste too … Continue reading Salted Date Tahini Caramel
I love Thai food – I love the fresh flavours, the vibrancy of the dishes and the ingredients they celebrate.

This tastes just like chocolate pudding. So, if you’re after pudding for breakfast then here is your answer. Or, you can make this chia pudding and actually enjoy it for pudding – it tastes that good. Not even in a ‘this is healthy so let’s pretend it tastes yummy, too’ kind of way. This is … Continue reading Chocolate, Cinnamon and Raisin Chia Pudding
Ever wondered what a Fattoush Salad is but been too afraid to ask, supposing you should have already known? Hands up now, let’s be honest. I was definitely one of those people who glanced at a menu and thought ‘mm that sounds delicious’ but never quite knew what it meant. I knew it was a … Continue reading Fattoush Salad
September is the month for CONNECTION. “Like the strands of a spider’s web, our lives are intricately connected with the lives of the people around us, whether we know them or not. We are all linked through the information, ideas, thoughts and beliefs we gather from the world, and all these connections have the potential … Continue reading Every Day Matters: September
This salad just screams summer to me. It’s full of vegetables, is light but filling enough for lunch and comes together in under 10 minutes – which is perfect when the sun is shining and you don’t want to waste precious vitamin-D time. I just love coronation-curry style flavours and I think this highlights the … Continue reading Chickpea Coronation Style (Cauli-)Rice
I cannot believe that even after a few months, there is only one baked granola recipe on Nourishing Amy (check it out here)… which is upsetting for me as it is something I always eat. I have to say, I have been lucky enough to be sampling a few store-bought varieties recently thanks to social … Continue reading Pistachio, Pumpkin Seed and Goldenberry Granola
It may now be September but we can definitely hold onto summer thoughts (or maybe wishes) for sunshine and warmth, can’t we? A girl can dream. For those days when the weather is warm enough for a cooling cup of iced tea, this is another great ‘recipe’ for a refreshing tipple. Similar to my Radiance … Continue reading Vitality Lemon Ginger and Baobab Iced Tea
Banging. That would be one word to describe this salad. A feast for the senses. That would be 5 more words to describe this salad. A rainbow bowlful of deliciousness. That would be 5 more words to describe this salad. Crunchy. Salty. Sweet. Tangy. Fresh. Zesty. Creamy. Colourful. That would be 8 more words to … Continue reading Crunchy Coconut Chickpea Kale Salad with Figs and Tahini Dressing
Let us all celebrate The Great British Bake Off 2018! What is a cup-scone I hear you ask? Very simply, it is a hybrid between a cupcake and a scone. When baking these little carrot cake bakes, I was a little dubious of the texture given the nature of coconut flour. The batter is very … Continue reading Carrot Cake Cup-Scones
‘chicken’ meet ‘nugget’ Aka tofu cubes meet a crunchy baked coating. These little bites got so much love on my social media story at the weekend and I am so excited to share them with you. I’m not usually one for ‘fake meats’ or ‘meat alternatives’. I love tofu, tempeh and seitan but when they’re … Continue reading Vegan Tofu Nuggets with Spicy Tomato Sauce
Asian flavours always make my heart sing and combine that with my adoration of cucumber and obsession with avocado and I’m bound to enjoy this dish. But I am pretty sure that you will, too.

Hummus and chocolate are two of my favourite things. Now, who says you can’t have both at the same time? Not me, that’s for sure. Not already won over by the idea of sweet hummus? Well, read on… Reasons this needs to be made: It is utterly delicious. It satisfies your sweet chocolate tooth craving … Continue reading Chocolate and Tahini Hummus
I love a quinoa salad, and while I’m so pleased to see the world catching on to the little grain and its amazing qualities, there are way too many ‘superfood quinoa’ salads on restaurant menus for my liking. Each one promises to be packed with superfoods, but when I read the ingredients, they are always … Continue reading Mango Edamame Sesame and Tahini Quinoa
If you love ginger then we’re going to get along just fine. I had some girlfriends over recently and I wanted to make something new for dessert that wouldn’t be too heavy. I always go for chocolate-based after dinner treats, but thought to spice it up a bit this time. Not that there is anything … Continue reading Raw Ginger and Apricot Crunch Bars
Don’t you just love it when a few staple cupboard ingredients combine to create one delicious and flavoursome dish? This is exactly what happened when I was craving some hummus and fancied a change from my usual tahini blend. Upon devouring this hummus straight from the blender bowl, I realised I’d happily and accidentally created … Continue reading Smoked Red Pepper and Walnut Hummus

I’d barely touched down in London and already I missed the eclectic and vibrant city that I got to know over my long girls’ weekend in Budapest. The Hungarian capital took my breath away; the tiny cobbled streets, the buzzing city vibe, the stunning architecture and the incredible food scene. Although Budapest is the capital … Continue reading A Nourishing Review: Budapest
There is one simple inspiration behind this meal: something I can eat easily that is soft on my teeth. A few days into my Invisalign teeth straightening journey, I was in quite a bit of pain and struggled to bite foods. I had never experience sensitive teeth before, nor dental work at all so it … Continue reading Tomato Spiced Sweet Potato Smash
August is the month for PATIENCE. “Living mindfully, and enjoying each moment to the fullest, requires patience. Only by learning to inhabit the moment, without brushing aside our current experience as we hurry through our to-do lists, can we live in total appreciation of life’s beauty. Instead of constantly striving to achieve everything in an … Continue reading Every Day Matters: August
What’s a coodle I hear you ask? Well, we’ve had zoodles or courgetti, so what to call a carrot noodle? A coodle, of course! I thought it was obvious anyway. This recipe makes the most of gorgeous carrot spirals without scrimping on those all important carbohydrates that make this a beautifully balanced meal. I chose … Continue reading Noodles and Coodles with Spicy Almond Satay
While I’ve been busy dreaming up new smoothie bowl combinations, I realised I hadn’t shared one of my everyday breakfasts.

I have to admit, while cauliflowers may not be in season right now, I am still loving them and buying them quite frequently.

And surely there are worse … Continue reading Pistachio and Date Quinoa with Roasted Cauliflower
Hello! Welcome to a new favourite meal of mine. Why is it a new favourite, you ask? Well, it combines the much-loved but perhaps over-done chickpea-based falafel ball with my love for tofu. Enter: tofu balls. What is even better is the Spicy Tomato Sauce that they are served with. You may know I love … Continue reading Spicy Thai Style Tofu Balls with Spicy Tomato Sauce and Miso Caramelised Onions

Every country has its own cuisine, and what I love most about getting to know a new country is getting to know its cultural dishes and ingredients. I’ve never been to Egypt but I definitely want to go at some point, although I must admit the inspiration for this recipe came from the abundance of … Continue reading Egyptian Spiced Courgette and Butter Beans with Turmeric Dukkha
July’s monthly theme: FRIENDSHIP. “The bonds that our early ancestors formed were essential to humankind’s survival, enabling them to build communities that protected and nourished.

I’ve called this a variation on Mac n Cheese, but my comforting pasta dish is a far cry from the butter and cheese laden dish.

The initial ones I made weren’t too spectacular, but it only made me more determined to … Continue reading Butternut Squash Mac n Cheezey Greens with Cheezey Hemp Sprinkle
As a happy two-month blog-iversay to Nourishing Amy, I have a special treat for all of you... Coconut and Cacao Donuts with Chocolate Coconut Glaze. I always say to eat more hole-foods! Donuts fit the bill perfectly. Joking aside, I am super proud of these ‘un-bakes’ and I am not afraid to say so. I, … Continue reading Coconut and Cacao Donuts
These are the family favourite. Hands down. I know there’s a plethora of chocolate chip cookies out there, but this one never claims to be a chocolate chip cookie. Instead, it’s more robust, hearty and chunky. It uses chopped chocolate for a rugged cookie, and the oats add that comforting ‘homely’ familiarity to them. You … Continue reading Chocolate Chunk Oat Cookies
