The benefits are that they are really quick […]

Vegan Mango Konafa with vegan mango cream

I love the creativity that starts to come out at the end of a fast. As you know I made this recipe earlier in the season when fresh mangoes were not plentiful in a non vegan fashion. I re-created it for a dinner party at mine using vegan ingredients and it went down a treat. […]

Basboosa: a vegan coconut and semolina tart topped with crunchy almonds

My mum has made basboosa for years, and the tray rarely lasts 24 hours before its gobbled up. The perfect foil for a cup of coffee, or an after dinner […]
