Savoury breakfast waffles {gluten-free, vegan, soy-free, dairy-free}

After a visit to Higher Ground in Melbourne, I needed to recreate some of the flavours I enjoyed atop some savoury breakfast waffles. Hello carbs, hello happiness!

Gluten-free vegan + soy-free French toast

I’ve been meaning to share my French toast recipe with you for months and thought that now might be the perfect time with Bastille Day approaching. I came up with the perfect recipe by accident, too. I had been testing ingredients that could replace miso paste in recipes and after having some luck with tahini, I started thinking of where else tahini could be used as an ingredient or a binding agent. Voilà – as the French say – the best gluten-free vegan and soy-free French toast was born.

Gluten-free vegan basics | The essential vegan smoothie (banana-free)

I’ve tried a lot of smoothies in my time, and boy, is it hard to find the perfect balance – not just in taste, but in prep time and number of ingredients, too. It’s hard to make a smoothie jam-packed full of nutrients when you’re vegan, hard when you’re time poor with a near empty fridge, and also, hard when you’re not a fan of the good old banana to thicken things up (which, I’ve been told, can take a smoothie from zero to hero pretty quickly).

Well, I’ve done it. I’ve made an easy smoothie that requires virtually zero prep and actually tastes good.
