Roasted Tomato & Red Lentil Soup w Spicy Pepitas + Avocado Cream | Veggie num num

Over the past year I’ve been working hard on something a little special to share with you all and it’s nearly ready to go! Due out in December is Going Veggie a book full of new delicious vegetarian recipes, a few of your old favourites plus lots of information on being a healthy and happy vegetarian.

It’s a book for everyone – vegetarians, new and old, flexi-vegetarians and meat eaters who enjoy the odd veggie meal. A guide full of everything I know about enjoying a simple, wholesome and satisfying vegetarian diet. I’m incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to create something like this to share with you all and I hope you’ll join me in my excitement!

“Becoming vegetarian is not about giving up meat it’s about adopting a cruetly-free lifestyle that makes you both happy and healthy. With Going Veggie you’ll uncover more about what it means to be vegetarian and the abundant world of delicious vegetarian food; discovering wholesome ingredients and learning just how simple it is to enjoy a nutritious and satisfying vegetarian diet.”

It’s been a crazy busy and super fun experience putting everything together and I can’t wait to hold a copy in my happy hands!!

Now on an occasion like this it might be more appropriate to share a cake recipe but instead I’m sharing this nourishing, tasty vegan tomato soup. Why? Well soup, for my family and I is one of those dishes we all love, and this soup especially.

Feeding a feisty toddler has been a huge learning curve. Making sure she gets the nutrition she needs while keeping the whole experience of food, taste and texture discovery fun and stress-free – it’s challenging but also incredibly rewarding!

This wholesome, tasty soup is something to celebrate as it boasts a combination of nourishing ingredients, is simple to make and our little girl loves it! She’ll happily eat a bowl for lunch and dinner days in a row, if I let her. The fact I serve it up over her favourite pasta and top it with vegetarian cheese goes a good way to making this delicious vegetarian tomato soup kid friendly.

Noticing cheap tomatoes at our fruit and veg shop over the weekend I knew it was time to make a big batch. It freezes well so it’s always handy to throw half the batch in the freezer for a quick nutritious meal when time is short.

I hope you’ll enjoy this recipe and I’ll have more information on the book coming up here on the blog next week, so stay tuned xo

Rich, smooth and chocolaty, I’ve been making different variations of raw vegan mousse lately… The banana and avocado create a smooth and creamy dairy-free mousse – plus, in this recipe, the tahini adds an extra element that I love when combined with cacao and the pistachio cream. [...]
