My Favourite Plant Based Recipes

I’m slowly trying to change my diet to a plant based one and over the past few months I’ve been collecting lots of recipes from Pinterest and Deliciously Ella, so I thought I’d share the favourite recipes I’ve come across.

Cauliflower Rice

So this isn’t a recipe as such, but I’m loving cauliflower rice at the moment. It’s ridiculously easy to make and takes no time at all.

  1. Cut the cauliflower into 4 large pieces and take out the core
  2. Then cut the cauliflower heads into medium size pieces
  3. Once they’ve been cut put them into a blender/food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is a rice like texture
  4. If there are any florets that haven’t been cut down, you can the large holes on a grater to finish off
  5. You can then either eat it cold, or cook it
  6. If you choose to cook it, all you need to do is put a table spoon of coconut oil (let it warm up) and add the cauliflower rice cooking it for about 10 minutes

So as I said, Cauliflower is really easy to make. I like to eat it with peas and sectors mixed up and sweet potato.

Sweet Potato Veggie Burger

Sweet potatoes are pretty much the staple of a plant based diet. They are so delicious I’m pretty sure I could eat them with every meal!

I’ve never been a massive meat eater, but I do love burgers so I’m glad I’ve found an alternative that’s just as delicious.


1 medium sweet potato

1/2 cup gluten free crackers

15 oz chickpeas

2 table spoons of green onions

2 table spoons of raw cashews

2 tea spoons of garlic powder

1/2 tea spoon salt

1 cup quinoa

1/2 cup baby kale

1-2 garlic cloves

Sale and pepper to taste

  1. Place sweet potato in the microwave for two minutes. Remove and allow to cool, cut into cubes
  2. Place gluten free crackers in a food processor and pulse until coarse flour is formed. Pour half on a plate
  3. Add to the remaining half of crackers; sweet potatoes, drained chickpeas, green onions, cashews, garlic powder, salt and quinoa. Pulse for a couple of seconds, until mixed together. Don’t mix for too long other wise it will form a paste
  4. Let the mixture sit for 5-7 minutes. Add chopped kale and stir throughout
  5. When ready to cook, turn oven to 200f and pour a table spoon of oil in the pan over a medium heat. Form into patties, then cover in remaining crackers
  6. Place 3-4 patties in the pan and cook for 5 minutes on one side. Flip the patties and cook until they’ve firmed up and are brown on both sides
  7. Place coked patties on a pan and into the oven. Cook for 10 minutes

I love eating this with sweet potato fries and lots of salad.

Frozen Banana Ice Cream


2 frozen bananas

1 table spoons peanut/almond butter

  1. Freeze 2 bananas
  2. Roughly chop and place into food processor
  3. Add table spoon of peanut/almond butter
  4. Continue to blend until smooth

I love having mine with almond butter. It’s so delicious and tastes amazing with strawberries and raspberries.
