Why not make yourself a batch of homemade glossy vegan teriyaki sauce? You’ll have the means to make a simple but delicious vegetarian or vegan meal with very little effort. The sauce itself only takes minutes to make. It’s healthier and more authentic than many of the recipes out there.
It’s been a good year for tomatoes here in the UK. If you have more than you know what to do with, try making this easy tomato sauce. It captures the taste of summer beautifully and can be squirrelled away to remind us of warmer days when the nights draw in. If you’ve never made tomato sauce from fresh tomatoes before, this recipe is a good place to start. It takes a little time to cook, but the preparation is easy.
Well, today is Valentines’s Day and to really show the love, you’ve got to have something chocolatey and decidedly decadent. More importantly today marks Tin and Thyme’s 9th anniversary. As some of you will know, it started life as Chocolate Log Blog and was a means for me to explore one of my great loves – the world of chocolate. This chocolate peanut butter ice cream sundae seems like a fitting celebration.
Oh I do love my Froothie blender. It makes such beautifully smooth sauces and has encouraged me to be so much more adventurous than I used to be. Vegan cheese sauce has been on my radar for a couple of years now. Last month, I finally got around to making some. This cheesy cashew nut sauce really is a revelation and I’ll be making it a regular part of my repertoire.
When I first heard of pulled jackfruit as a vegetarian and vegan alternative to pulled pork, I have to say I was sceptical. By now, I should really know better! When enough vegan bloggers tell you it’s delicious, I should listen. And finally I did.
As regular readers will know, I can’t resist a brownie. I have many recipes for them on the blog, but there are still so many to try. These black velvet cheesecake swirl brownies with stout caramel sauce were the happy result of two events fortuitously coinciding. It was a no brainer; I had to make them. The third event, is of course We Should Cocoa, the blogger’s monthly, “we need chocolate”.
Yes, it’s another flipping pancake post! But Pancake Day is very nearly here and I’m making the most of it. It’s one of my favourite days of the year as it’s a good excuse to indulge. English, Dutch, Scots, American, Breton, sweet, savoury – pancakes of any description are fine by me. Last week I made some savoury pea protein pancakes. Today I give you wholemeal spelt pancakes served with a sophisticated coffee cardamom chocolate sauce.
Last week, I made some smoked salted caramel sauce. It was just amazing and I will be bringing you the recipe sometime soon. Sugar and cream, however, are not the healthiest of ingredients, so when I was sent some maca powder recently, I thought I’d try a healthier alternative. This vegan salted caramel sauce is both dairy-free and sugar-free and it’s positively good for you.
When I ordered my latest supplies from Suma, it was around Pancake Day so I had pancakes very much in mind. I wasn’t quite sure what sort I would make, but I ordered a few things which might be suitable. With Easter fast approaching, I finally plumped for some uber healthy yet delicious chocolate pancakes for Easter, which I thought a fine idea.
