I never really liked to cook before. To me, cooking was a laborious chore in exchange for the pointlessly short enjoyment of eating.

That is until I became a vegan! Only then did I care to create the foods I craved, as I was motivated to do what’s right by the animals, and was equally equipped with a newfound enthusiasm to play around with culinary possibilities.

Slowly, I started to enjoy the preparations, and cooking no longer felt like an obligation. The simple acts of whisking, slicing, mixing, and measuring; they all play their parts and as you become more immersed in the process, you feel a deeper sense of appreciation to everything around you.

This is why I started a cooking channel on YouTube, and as my inspirations change from day to day it makes for an eclectic range of recipes to explore.

Come along for these adventures I would really love for you to join me :)

Cheater's Tortellini

The beauty of this dish is that you can make many different fillings, try: vegan mince instead of fennel for a meatier texture; adding shredded vegan mozzarella or feta cheese; or, combining with leftover veggies from last night's dinner. To watch the video recipe, click here.

Crème Caramel Flan

A light, silky, and creamy custard, gently set with a hint of vanilla, infused in a rich caramel sauce. This no-fuss recipe requires no steaming or baking or even the hassle of thermometers. It is easy and painless but still sets beautifully to create a luscious dessert. To watch the video recipe, click here.
