Quick Lentil Curry

Quick Lentil Curry  Since the beginning of my plant-based journey, lentils have been my go-to pulse. I love that they’re nubbly and gritty texture. They add a lovely bite to vegan dishes. I had a friend’s boyfriend joke that if you were going to a vegans’ house for dinner, you were pretty much guaranteed lentils. Admittedly, I’ve eaten more lentils now than I’ve ever eaten in my life. Jokes on him though.. Caus lentils are awesome!

Thandi’s Eats – Feb ’16

Red Pepper Pasta 1  Happy March! Can you believe it’s March already? Before we know it, we’ll be sipping mulled wine an wrestling with Christmas trees again. If anyone asks, this is the reason I give for the fact that my Christmas wreath is still hanging on the front door.

I’ve been enjoying the sun and sea this month in South Africa, before I have to pack up and brace myself for the frosty spring in London. I’ve enjoyed loads of fruits, salads and of course my beloved avocados. Here are my top eats from last month.

Blueberry Protein Smoothie

Blueberry Protein Smoothie

 I realise that January is fast coming to an end but… Happy New Year! Would you believe me if I told you my holiday-haze ended this past Monday? It’s been an insane festive season with far too much of everything. I’ve hardly slept, I partied to the point of no return and forgot what leafy greens were.. It was awesome!

Unfortunately the urgent emails are flooding my inbox, so it’s time to take off the beer goggles and be a grown-up.

Vegan Pizza Twists

IMG_8175 (3)Have you ever noticed how excited vegans get about vegan pizza? The vegan pizza groupies are somewhat of a social media cult. I say this because I know for a fact that there are blogs dedicated solely to vegan pizza, trust me it’s a thing.

I think the reason vegan pizza is such a triumph is because in a lot of instances, it tastes just as good as regular pizza. It’s always a triumph when you can get a vegan product to mimic and rival the original. These pizza twists capture all the vital pizza flavours and crispy dough all dunked gooey dipping sauce.
