Colourful Sumac Giant Cous Cous Salad

DSCN0217

Salads often get a bad rap. I mean, we have all been subjected to those tasteless, non adventurous excuses of salad, which, lets face it, do fit the stereotypic vegan food description of ‘rabbit food’. Whilst we have come a long way, with cookbooks, vegan and otherwise solely dedicated to revamping and (re)igniting the love of the humble salad and restaurant menus often showcasing bold salads, there is still some way to go in highlighting that salad does not always have to begin with lettuce, especially iceberg, and the ultimate important factor – the dressing of some description to bring the whole thing together.

Beetroot and Kale Burgers with Balsamic Red Onions

IMG_1849

It’s that time of year when the scent of burning barbecues fills the air. There is something about the smell of burning coals that is so comforting and exciting to the taste buds. Yet, as soon as the stench of burning flesh hits the grill, I lose my appetite. But, that doesn’t mean I have to miss out, I have a small portable bucket barbecue that I can use in my garden to satisfy my summer grilled burger cravings, along with some grilled mushrooms and peppers.

A Whistle-stop View of my USA Vegan Tour

Many of you will know that I set off on quite the adventure in May to the USA to meet, visit, stay with a number of wonderful people who I have virtually met along my blogging journey – fellow bloggers, vegan facebookers, instagrammers, cookbook authors, recipe testers, and just wonderful people in the very kind and supportive online vegan community. I didn’t get to meet them all unfortunately, funds and furries at home limited that, plus the fact that you guys are global. But, I did get to meet some of my nearest and dearest friends, those who I have connected with in a capacity beyond just veganism or blogging, those who inspire me and I look up to and who make my days a little brighter. I covered 2 states (Utah and California) and at least 20 cities and counties from Salk Lake City to Springdale, San Francisco to San Diego. It was a trip of a lifetime. Here’s a whistle-stop view: Continue reading
