How to: Instant Pot Beans

When you’re eating a (mostly) plant based diet, beans are probably one of your staples. They’re very affordable and generally considered a good source of protein – though plant proteins are incomplete and harder for the human body to process than animal proteins. This need not be a problem however, as long as you make…

Gluten Free Flour Blend

It’s easy and convenient to make your own gluten free flour blend. That, and it gives you total control over what goes into it. It might be cheaper too, though I can’t be sure of that. I never bought a gluten free flour blend, just a ton of different gluten free flours. They’re still all…

Corona Muffins

As of today, Corona Muffins are a thing. My thing. I was going to make biscuits but didn’t have the right ingredients. So I decided to make muffins instead. Didn’t have the right ingredients for them either, so I improvised. And the muffins magically turned into something more resembling scones. Pity I don’t have clotted…

Oven Roasted Veggies

I love oven roasted veggies and almost always make them during a meal prep session as they are easy, tasty and versatile. They’re so easy, I don’t even have a real recipe for them. I also won’t be giving you exact amounts, because that really depends on what you want and how much you’ll be…

Sweet pea brownies

Happy Chocolate Tuesday! And yes, you read that right. Sweet pea brownies. It’s no typo. There’s sweet peas in these brownies. And you won’t even taste them. There’s also cherry jam in them. You will taste that. And you can totally eat them for breakfast. It’s what I did the other day. Now, did I…

Meal Prep January 2020

No energy, no shopping done. I had to make do with what I still had in the house. But I still wanted to do my weekly meal prep. Let’s jump right in, shall we? First things first. I wrote a list. I soaked 1 cup of white beans overnight. The next morning I got out…
