Courgette, Kale and Roasted Garlic Soup

So I know it’s the middle of ‘summer’, but we have had a fairly rainy and miserable stint over the last couple of weeks that has left me feeling particularly autumnal.

Gluten-free Mushroom Burgers (Vegan)

These burgers are the bomb (if I do say so myself). If you’re looking for a substitute to a meat burger that still packs a flavoursome punch and has a similar consistency to a meat patty, mushrooms are the answer. And even if you are a meat-eater, adding a healthy dose of mushrooms into your…

This is my ultimate Autumn British soup. I have combined seasonal vegetables with a traditionally British cheese to make it lovely and sustainable.

Fresh Corn, Beetroot, Green Bean, Tomato, Rocket and Feta Salad

Quite often, I walk into the supermarket or local market, with no idea what I’m looking for. Like most young people without heaps of disposable income, I look at the seasonal veg because it’s usually the cheapest (and eating seasonal local food is better for the environment), and sometimes the reduced stuff because I love…
