Food snaps to make you fat just by looking at them

No recipes (comment if you'd like one), but here's a taste of what can be done with some funky vegan skillz in the kitchen. You don't need those cholesterol raising animal products to have a Bacchanalian feast!

Chocolate and Coconut Cake

Moist and decadent, yet (compared to other cakes) refreshingly healthy!

Curried pumpkin pastries

Hearty, pretty and delicious by even the most hardened omni's standards!

New fresh delicious recipes, your way cometh

Well, after a protracted hiatus (due to work and study keeping us well-in-hand), we're back!

We're sorry for the length of the radio silence; but we promise to start bringing you fresh, vegan goodies once more.

World Vegan Day is coming up on Nov 1st, so we're planning to unleash a new feast then. There'll be an entree, main AND a dessert. Voting on the ingredients will open very soon, so keep stopping by here to look out for that.

To whet your appetites, we'll be posting pictures and/or recipes of some of the tongue tingling things that have been happening in our kitchen. Here's a recipe for some banana walnut muffins I made this morning - with only five key ingredients, what could be simpler?

Big vegan love to you all!

Banana Walnut Muffins

Great as a breakfast, mid-morning or afternoon snack, these banana muffins are dead-set certs in the "winning friends and influencing people" recipe stakes.


4 mashed, large, uber-gooey ripe bananas
1 cup of bashed up california walnuts
3/4 of a cup of raw sugar (a lot of refined sugar isn't vegan)
2 tablespoons of macadamia oil/vegetable oil
2 cups of organic whole-meal self raising flour (I reckon organic flour tastes better)

**optional - this will brown them slightly**
1 level tspn of bicarb
1 tblspn of apple cider vinegar


This couldn't be easier! Combine mashed bananas with oil and sugar and mix well. Add flour and walnuts and give the whole lot a good stir. If adding the optional ingredients, do so at this stage.

Dollop out into about 12 muffin cases and bake in a pre-heated oven at 190 degrees celsius for 20- 25 minutes.

Try to wait for them to cool before eating. Hot walnuts HURT. Alternately, for the kamikaze eaters among us, spread with butter and go for it.
