Chocolate orange shortbread – Pacari chocolate

Posted on

Happy World Chocolate Day! To celebrate, I came up with this really simple, gluten free and vegan shortbread recipe. I’m Scottish so obviously love a bit of shortbread! For this recipe, I used the Pacari orange chocolate but you could pretty much use any flavour for this! I’ll definitely be trying out some other flavours […]

Vegan and gluten free mushballs

I’d seen a lot of different recipes for bolognese sauce for pasta, with lentils or quorn mince so I decided to try and create a meat-less meatball using up some of the huge amount of mushrooms I had in the fridge. They turned out so well! A slightly softer texture to regular meatballs but go […]

It’s a shame as I do love travelling and seeing new places but when you have the constant worry of your IBS playing up, it definitely takes a bit of the enjoyment […]

Free From Food Awards 2019
