So what’s a girl to do when her fridge is full of Brown Rice Rejuvelac? Why, make vegan cheese, of course!!! Blogging along with this year’s Vegan MoFo challenge really got me thinking about what foods I like that are both vegan and gluten-free… and I got sad when cheese wasn’t on that list. So […]

Blueberry Ginger Oat & Quinoa Granola with Lemon

Inspired by the great success of my Cherry Almond Granola, and having run out (after much Greek-yogurt-breakfast & handfuls-for-snacks gobbling, plus a prezzie for Mum), it was time for a new granola. And I wanted to play around with the flavours; the idea of ginger & lemon zest in a granola had been calling to […]

Cherry Almond Granola

How did I not know how easy it is to make granola? Seriously, this was a fabulous discovery for me — I can customize granola to be exactly how I want it, and in less than an hour?  PERFECT. I think I threw in everything but the kitchen sink here: dried cherries, coconut, almonds and […]
