Peruvian Portobello Mushroom Seco

This version removes the seitan (making it gluten-free), and replaces it with Portobello and Crimini mushrooms, and Japanese sweet potatoes. The dense and chewy texture of the mushrooms, along with the salty broth…

Yet, with a little extra care and consideration we can still enjoy super-healthy celebrations, whilst knowing that every morsel that we eat and share with family and friends can be filled with health affirming goodness. I’ve enjoyed eating healthful foods for years and would choose wholesome plant-based delights any day of the year. Learning to create very satiating recipes…

No-Bake Vegan Carrot Cake by Trinity (Gluten-Free Too!)

Raw carrot cake slice by Trinity Bourne

It seems like an eternity since I made my first raw carrot cake, some 15 years ago. A small group (4 of us) formed the ‘Raw Pudding Club’ – we’d gather before lunch, all bringing the most delicious raw desserts (with an occasional salad on the side 😉 ). We’d spend 12 hours straight indulging, chatting, learning, laughing, crying and inspiring one another with anything from food to optimal health…

Raw Vegan Chocolate Covered Coconut Paradise Bars

I remember how tasty shop bought, coconut chocolate bars seemed to be back in the days when I ate that ‘regular’ kind from the store.

These days when…
