5-minute vegan alfredo sauce that happens to be soy-free

There are plenty of vegan alfredo sauce recipes out there, but the soy factor has always put me off making it given I’m not big on imitation milk or cheese. So what makes this one special? It’s a vegan alfredo sauce that’s soy-free, oil-free, gluten-free and it has a healthy dose of protein, is no-cook and only takes five minutes to make.

A healthier take on Lao Gan Ma’s spicy chilli crisp

Whenever I have a jar of this made, it’s forever on my mind. I have a tendency to put it on everything… pizza, risotto, taco salad (this one is coming soon), braised chickpeas (still a work in progress) and it’s even great on plain rice.

Caramelised onion and zucchini pasta with roasted cauliflower

For a long time, I’ve been on the quest for a tomato-free vegetable pasta dish that is equally easy and delicious. It’s not that I have anything against tomato, more that I think there’s far more to vegetarian pasta recipes than marinara sauce – and to me that’s something worth exploring.

Hot and sour soup {pressure cooker/Instant Pot}

I’m not the biggest fan of soups, but sometimes I’ll surprise myself and get a craving for a cleansing soup like hot and sour. You can make this recipe in a regular saucepan instead of a pressure cooker – it will take longer than five minutes to get the soup really flavoursome by going way of conventional cooking.

One-dish chocolate cake {gluten-free, vegan}

I’ve created a light and airy chocolate cake that’s chocolatey but not too chocolatey. And if you have a decent-sized Pyrex dish, you can mix it and cook it in the same dish without needing to grease it.
