Mushroom, Spinach & Butternut Lasagne

A delicious autumn lasagne, with a creamy mushroom, tofu and spinach filling, with layers of silky butternut b├ęchamel and tender lasagne sheets. This is a twist on a classic lasagne - a creamy and indulgent tasting vegan white lasagne - spinach and ricotta-style - without any tomato sauce.

This recipe makes 6 generous portions and prep is pretty simple too, so it's more than worth the extra effort and once you've tasted the delicious herby mushroom filling and the sweet, nutty butternut b├ęchamel you'll be wondering when you can make it again!

Cinnamon Crunch Granola

Crunchy, cinnamon-spiced granola with buckwheat, pumpkin seeds and chewy crystallised ginger. Perfect to be enjoyed with some fruit & vegan yogurt as a breakfast or morning snack, or serve up with some baked fruit and ice cream for a delicious dessert!

I love to have mine as a mid-morning snack with some yogurt and fresh fruit - even after a few hours it remains crunchy and delicious, thanks to the buckwheat! With a whole range of plant-based ingredients, this granola is full of wholegrains, fibre, protein, your daily ALA (short-chain omega 3), iron, magnesium, manganese and when paired with fruit and live vegan yogurt, will also give you a good helping of vitamin C, calcium and probiotics too [1]

Chestnut & Mushroom Lentil Stew

This next recipe is Autumn in a bowl - a rich mushroom and lentil stew with white wine, silky chestnut cream and roasted butternut squash. It's savoury, comforting, filling and will warm you right through. It's also super nourishing, delivering a whole range of essential nutrients!

This stew is delicious as is, but if you'd like something to soak up the sauce a little, you could serve it up with some crusty bread, a side of mash or even some homemade dumplings for a hearty evening meal!

Red Lentil Soup

The seasons have turned; bright firey colours, falling leaves and the air a little more crisp, when nothing could be better than a hearty bowl of soup to warm you through. This is such a simple, yet super delicious and nourishing lentil soup recipe.

Below you can find the recipe and my latest video on how to make this soup, ready in under 30 minutes - with warming spices and protein-packed lentils to keep you feeling full. Perfect served up with a slice of crusty wholemeal bread for dunking.

Instant Pot Spicy Rice

Smoky, spicy rice with sweet red peppers and peas. Cooked in the Instant Pot (electric pressure cooker), for perfect results every time! Inspired by Nandos' spicy rice, with added veg for a little more colour and goodness. This recipe is medium-high spice and if you like it a little more or even less spicy, it's easily customisable to your taste! 

Great to serve up as a main dish or as a side - the recipe makes a generous amount, so if cooking for fewer people you could also halve it, or make the full batch and pop the leftovers in the freezer for an even easier dinner another night!
