Poached Egg & Avocado on Rye

Poached Egg & Avocado on Rye

Smashed avocado on toast is one of my favourite weekend brunch meals. Add a poached egg on top and I’m in heaven. So, as it is asparagus season, why not throw some lightly cooked asparagus on top to make the ultimate Spring breakfast!  This recipe is super easy with only a handful of ingredients. I find the key to perfect poached eggs is a splash of apple cider vinegar in the water, it keeps...
Raw Buckwheat Porridge

Raw Buckwheat Porridge

A few years ago I went through a phase of making raw buckwheat porridge EVERY DAY, so I am surprised it has taken me this long to write about it. I have used organic ingredients as part of the Soil Association‘s #WakeUpToOrganic campaign, which I purchased from my local Bristol health stores Harvest, Scoopaway and Better Food Company.  There are plenty of versions of buckwheat porridge online, however I like to keep the base ingredients simple and...

Vegan Tofu Scramble

Vegan Tofu Scramble

Although not vegan myself, I often cook meat/ dairy/ egg free meals, and probably over half (if not more) of my recipes on the blog are vegan. Whilst studying at university I turned completely vegan for about 6 months and to be honest, I struggled. I am a massive foodie who loves to eat out, so being so restricted in restaurants made me fall out with food. It wasn’t the fact that the food was vegan...
Oat and Fruit Jar

Oat and Fruit Jar

I often make an oat and fruit jar the night before work, ready to grab-and-go in the mornings to enjoy in work. However, if you have time in the mornings, they are just as good made fresh. I love thick Greek yogurt, but in fact a slightly runnier yogurt works best here as the oats soak up a lot of the juices creating a bircher like muesli. I have been celebrating the Soil Association’s #WakeUpToOrganic campaign...
Mushroom Spinach and Avocado Wrap

Mushroom Spinach and Avocado Wrap

My friends run an amazing Honduran rum company Pirate’s Grog, and they are hosting a festival called Rumbellion just outside London between the 5-7th June 2015. I am very happy to say that Independent Kitchen will be catering at the festival, and this is one of the recipes I have designed for the menu. Wraps are fantastic festival food because you don’t need any plates or cutlery, there is very little packaging needed and are easy...
