I have been loving experimenting with my banana breads these last few months. After a successful Pumpkin Banana Bread in September I knew I had to bring out another show stopper flavour! What couldn't be more delicious than the classic Peanut Butter Jelly combo in addition to an already amazing banana loaf! Honestly, toasting a slice or three for breakfast in the morning leaves the house smelling divine whilst I munch down on my sweet treats with extra added jam. Give this re
Carrot cake has always been one of my favourites as a child. I don't know why, but there's something about the texture and flavour compliments of a perfect slice to frosting ratio. Normally a classic cream cheese icing is my preference, but I felt like changing it up with a salted caramel frosting this time around - I mean you can't go wrong with salted caramel and this is definitely no exception! Ingredients: 240ml Natures Charm evaporated coconut milk 1tbsp apple cider vine
If you are yet to try making your own sushi, I order you to go get yourself the supplies (and a sushi mat) right now. Not only is it easy to make, its fun to do with friends and is a great way to experiment with your own choice of fillings. You can start simple with a cucumber or avocado maki but when you want to experiment I would highly recommend this vegan alternative to the classic salmon cream cheese filling characterised by Philadelphia rolls! As the salmon substitute I
If you are a fan of jackfruit, but not a fan of taking the time to marinate it, then Natures Charm's ready marinated tins of Bar-be-cue jackfruit are definitely for you! Ready to eat, or as an addition to your favourite meal - they really are amazing. Why not have your hand at my twist on a classic fried rice dish! Ingredients: Serves 2 · ½ onion, diced · 120g chestnut mushrooms, sliced · 1 can Natures Charm Bar-be-que jackfruit · 1tbsp roasted sesame oil · 120g basmati

Whatever the reason is for you to be searching this recipe, I warn you now - they are addictive! Ingredients: makes 6 - 60g dark tahini - 60g sugar / sweetener - 80g all-purpose flour - 2tsp matcha powder - 1/2tsp vanilla extract - 1/2tsp apple cider vinegar - 1/4tsp baking powder - pinch of salt - 1/4C coconut milk (or other non-dairy alternative) 1.

Twix bites, again? Don't be fooled with this updated recipe, they taste rather different but are just as moreish! I am a sucker for all things salted caramel, so this recreation was inevitable... I hope you enjoy! (they probably won't last much longer than a day)!

With the cold weather often comes a lot of colds, sniffs and those days where all you want is some wholesome, comforting food. You may wonder how an Asian inspired dish can be so comforting, but trust me the ingredients in this dish definitely do the trick. I view it as the Asian and vegan alternative to the classic chicken-noodle soup people crave when they are sick. Ingredients: serves 2 - 150g basmati rice - 150g exotic asian mushrooms; shiitake, oyster, enoki etc. (plus 3
It's been a while since a savoury recipe has been posted on here, so I thought it was about time I tried something new - since I have definitely been digging savoury over sweet lately (shocker!). I had some leftover cauliflower 'rice' from another meal that I wanted to use up, and what a better way than making some arancini balls - replacing normal rice for cauliflower to get in some hidden veggies!
I used the air fryer for cooking, but alternatively you could bake in the ove
Chai is such a winter warmer and makes for a perfect latte in alternative to coffee at this time of year. However, in my opinion chai isn't just for drinking and these chai spiced cookies are a perfect afternoon treat! Using Bnutz festive chai spiced nut butter is the key ingredient for these gooey on the inside, crunchy on the outside, perfect cookie. Ingredients: makes 10-12 - 120g Bnutz chai spiced nut butter - 120g granulated sugar - 160g self-raising flour - 1/2tsp apple
Anpan may not be something you have come across so let me tell you what it is. It is a Japanese sweet bread roll, traditionally filled with red bean paste and often eaten alongside a cup of matcha tea latte. Sounds good, right? Let me tell you it's amazing and makes for a perfect sweet breakfast on the go! Traditionally made with egg, milk and sometimes cream it took a few attempts to get the vegan version perfected - but I think I have finally made one for you!
Keeping it real with one of my favourite meals to make which I am finally sharing with you guys! A creamy coconut ramen inspired by the non-vegan TanTan classic. The recipe here just serves one as I often like to make this when I am the only one home for an evening as I find it so comforting!
Ingredients: - 1/2C Natures Charm tinned coconut milk (full-fat) - 1tsp miso paste - 1tbsp sesame paste - 1tsp soy sauce - 1-2tbsp chilli oil - skinny soba noodles, cooked - 1/2 red pep
Another favourite food of mine when I was in Vietnam; starting my meal off with a plate of mini rice paper rolls. Sometimes I was served a peanut dipping sauce but other times I got the classic spicy, sweet, fish sauce (vegan of course) and this is what I wanted to recreate with mine! Let me know if you try it out - as I think I got the sauce pretty damn good (& the fillings are the best combination in my opinion) Ingredients: - 2 carrots, thinly sliced - 1/2 cucumber, thinly
Beware when you make these... They are incredibly moreish and may be gone within seconds... These little bites are the best snack to have on hand; they satisfy your choccy cravings, taste indulgent, fuels you with energy yet are incredibly 'healthy' (well kind of...). Each bite contains 5g protein! So perfect for a post workout treat, if you are about that life. Take your hand at making these - as they are so fun to make! Tag me on instagram @plant.steph as I would love to sh
It's time to focus on another cuisine this month, and for October I have chosen one of my favourites - Vietnamese. Stay tuned for 4-5 recipes for you to make which you could mix and match for a dinner party, but first up is a traditional street food of Vietnam: the classic Banh Mi sandwich. Traditionally filled with pate or your choice of meat, this vegan version uses chorizo style seitan but you could always go for a vegetarian pate or smoked tofu to pair with the fillings!
Ah sweet sweet gnocchi. The most comforting of foods. This recipe is a twist on the classic, with a not so traditional pan fried sauce made from Natures Charm evaporated coconut milk and brown rice miso paste. I pan fried mine with tempeh, mushrooms and peas but feel free to add whatever you like (eg. tofu, broccoli etc.). I hope you enjoy!
Ingredients: serves 2 - 1 pack sweet potato gnocchi (400g) - 250ml Natures Charm evaporated coconut milk - 2tsp brown rice miso paste -
I have teamed up with Herbalife Nutrition UK for their new release of the Vegan Trip Blend Select Banana Protein which had me instantly thinking of the classic PB + Banana combo. So why not combine these flavours into some yummy, healthy raw cheesecakes which make the perfect snack or after dinner treat! (they are so more-ish you will keep wanting more!). Ingredients: (makes 6 single size cheesecakes) Base: - 100g dates - 60g walnuts Topping: - 1 ripe banana - 40g Tri Blend S
Who's a fan of raw desserts? Little sweet cold bites of indulgent yumminess - what's not to love! When I found a tin of Nature's Charm whipping cream remaining in my fridge (after thinking I had used them all), I got inspired to make mini muffin sized 'cheesecakes' for the freezer. Ingredients: (makes 5 single serve raw cakes) Base: - 1/2 cup soy flour (sub coconut flour if desired) - 1/4 cup coconut flour - 1/4 cup oat flour - 1tbsp agave syrup - 1/4 cup + 1tbsp cold water (
As you have probably seen on instagram, I have started a new recipe series where each month I will focus on one cuisine and perfect some of its most popular meals in vegan form. The idea is, that the complete recipe set can be used to wow your friends at a dinner party so will consist of multiple courses!
The first month (as you can guess) is JAPANESE! I love asian cuisine, so what better than starting with Japan where my love for sushi is answered. Hence, my very first recip
Looking for a weekend treat, or surprising your loved ones with a homemade Sunday Brunch? Then this waffle recipe will keep them satisfied. I chose a combination of flours as I found it to have the nicest texture (soft and fluffy on the inside, yet crispy on the outside). Grab your waffle maker, get it heating and start preparing your batter!
Ingredients: (makes 2 waffles) - 50g oat flour - 50g plain flour - 25g coconut flour - 1tsp baking powder - 1tbsp melted coconut oil -
