Caribbean Food Week 2015 - Jerk Tofu with Rice & Peas.

If you're not aware, this week (24th-31st August) is Caribbean Food Week. A week dedicated to exploring and encouraging people to give Caribbean food a go. Caribbean Food Week is organised by Grace Foods UK, who are the biggest suppliers of Caribbean food and drink in the UK, and they very kindly sent me a hamper of goodies so that I could get creative in the kitchen. Caribbean cuisine is not a regular on my menu, so I was excited to try something new and see what culinary delights I could come up with.

Recipe | Vegan 'Cheese' Sauce.

I love cheese, but given that dairy isn't my friend and I'm trying to lean more towards a dairy free lifestyle as much as I possibly can, eating a huge bowl of traditional mac and cheese is kind of off the cards. But fear not, you can create a delicious 'cheese' sauce alternative with no dairy in sight. So technically it's not really a cheese sauce at all, but we'll call it that just to keep things simple.

Recipe | Vegan Protein Bites feat. MyProtein*.

"But how do you get enough protein?" is a question I have frequently been asked since going veggie. In all honesty it's really not that hard and there are plenty of plant based protein sources out there, including, pulses, nuts, seeds, soy and leafy greens. I'm not a huge lover of protein shakes and I do try my very best to get all the protein I need from food sources, however, it is handy to have a stash of protein powder knocking about for occasions when I fancy doing a bit of protein baking.
