  • No Sugar, No egg, no maida cake
    03 July 2020

    No sugar, no egg, no maida cake – Healthy cake recipe without sugar, egg, and maida. This is a Gluten-free cake and has the option of making it Vegan too.

    Sometime back when Madhu posted about this cake on Instagram, I bookmarked the recipe. Apart from the no sugar, no egg, no maida options what fascinated me more is, it is an easy blender cake. Yes, you can blend all the ingredients in a blender and bake it. How easy right! That too for a person like me who hates the elaborate process of mixing dry ingredients separately, wet ingredients separately, and then cleaning up all the mess!!

    In the original recipe, Almond milk was added but since I didn’t have that in hand, I used normal milk. Since I am on a gluten-free diet now, I wanted to replace the atta with some gluten-free flour. I had some jowar flour with me. Since I had tried Jowar cookies before, I thought I will use that in this No sugar, gluten-free cake recipe.

    Use good quality dates for the best results. Also, some dates tend to be a little sweeter, in that case, reduce the number of dates to 20.

    The texture of the cake was slightly dense and sticky, but the taste was too good. It’s definitely a guilt-free indulgence. I can say it is a diabetic-friendly cake recipe, but please consult your doctor or nutritionist before having this cake.

    Do read the notes section for some variations.

  • Is this a possible life changer?
    03 July 2020

    Hi, my name is Jimmy and I'm making this post because I don't really have others to talk to about this.

    My wife and I have been eating more vegetarian meals for some months now. Removed meat of around 25-ish% of all our meals. I also watch a lot of documentaries and the last few have been about the meat industry. Also a reason of why I'm feeling so strange I think.

    Lately I just don't feel good while eating meat anymore. It feels so strange, knowing that I've always been raised on meat and was always the first to add meat to our meals. We never had any meat-leftovers because I wouldn't allow it. If my wife didn't finish her meat, I would. I felt sorry for the animals to have died and to not get eaten, just to get tossed into the garbage bin. Also today I grabbed a quick snack and I checked the ingredients... "Mechanically seperated chicken meat / leftovers". Reading that ingredient literally gave me shivers.

    Anyway, I feel really unsure about what I should do. I don't see myself giving up meat 100%, but I just don't like it that much anymore.

    Anyone who can relate or has gone through the same phase?

    *Yes, we eat meat substitutes aswell, halloumi is heaven!

    Sorry if this post isn't that well written. Thanks in advance!

    03 July 2020

    I am trying to find some good vegetarian vitamins that have both iron and b12 in them! I would prefer gummie vitamins and cruelty free but I would love to hear what you take regardless! What are average prices too?

  • Summer Salads made in a jiffy using OXO Mandolin and Nesting Bowls.
    01 July 2020
    We have been very fortunate for the last few weeks to have had mostly good weather. The sunshine has meant that we can do a lot of the outdoor chores that were accumulating.

    I have also spent a little more time in the garden growing some tomatoes, chillies, coriander and strawberries. For some one who does not have green fingers at all I am very proud of my self.

    Since the weather has been hot, we have been eating mostly in the garden. Our lunches have mainly been quick and easy salads that are healthy and delicious too.
    Salads don't need to be boring, you can add not just lettuce, tomatoes radishes, onions, peppers and tomatoes but fruits in salads too. I love peaches, apricots, plums, oranges, grapes and apples in my salad too. Of course not forgetting the different varieties of melons too. Water melon and feta pair well together  and I love orange and grapefruit in my salads too to give that citrus kick.

    With the recent COVIDsitation, I have been extra careful with my fruit and vegetables. As soon as I get my shopping home, I soak the fruits and vegetables in a solution made of  vinegar and bicarbonate of soda in large bowl for an hour, after which I drain the vegetables and fruits and give them a really wash and good rinse in cold water. I then leave them to air dry before storing.

    I find my OXO’s 9-Piece Nesting Bowl and Colander Set is really handy in the kitchen. The set has three bowls, three colanders, and three lids in small, medium and large sizes. They bowla with the colanders really handy for washing fruits and vegetables and also for draining cooked pulses, beans, rice and pasta too.
    The bowls are also perfect for baking too, the handy non-slip base keeps bowls stabilised when mixing.

    Putting a salad together is really easy especially if you have a mandolin to slice the vegetables thinly. The OXO Hand-Held Mandolin Slicer is my best friend in the kitchen. It's compact and fits into my kitchen drawer and is so handy to slice my vegetables uniformly.

    The mandolin has a sharp blade with a thickness adjuster to select the thickness you need and it has a special holder that you attach to the fruit or vegetable that you are slicing to keep it secure and protect your fingers from the blade. It also helps you to slice to the last bit of the fruit or vegetable with very little waste.

    The mandolin is easy to clean as well, it just needs a rinse in warm soapy water. It just saves getting the food processor out as the mandolin is so quick and easy to use.

    You can also add grains like couscous, quinoa and Bulgar wheat to your salads to bulk them up. Adding beans such as black eyed beans, borlotti beans, green lentils, kidney beans and chick peas are a great way to add protein to the salad.

    Having the right equipment in the kitchen certainly makes prepping food a lot easier. OXO have a vast range of kitchenware that is great for all types of food preparations. Do check out the OXO UK website for the full range. What is your favorite kitchen gadget that you love. Do share in the comments below.

  • Slow cooker ratatouille
    30 June 2020

    This slow cooker ratatouille is insanely rich and flavourful, and works beautifully as a standalone stew, or on pasta. Plus, it’s made with 100% vegetables!

    100% vegetables! That’s what’s in this slow cooker ratatouille – just pure veg.

    Well, plus a pinch of herbs and some salt and pepper, so I suppose technically it’s more like 99% vegetables… but still, that’s pretty great. And you won’t believe the incredible flavour you can get from all those veg!
