Blissful Bites

Things have been a bit hectic in our household, as we prepare for our trip whilst doing a large and much needed spring clean. Partially because we have house sitter and also because Toby starts studying full time when we return.

But I have to tell you about my new fave cookbook. I often get a new cookbook and made a few things and then leave it on the shelves for inspiration but don't actually make much out of it. There has been a few exceptions though like vegan cupcakes take over the world and vegan scoop. However, I'm obsessed with my new cookbook because its healthy, gf friendly, meals are generally pretty quick and don't require too many weird ingredients. I've been particuarly drawn to the recipes with seaweed in them. It's only been a few weeks since I received it and I've already made:

Land and Sea Soba Salad:

Fiesta quinoa salad:

Spring kale salad with sweet miso dressing, almost forgot to take a photo!

Tempeh 'fish' tacos with mango peach salsa:

And not your usual pad thai with an apricot almond sauce.

I can't decide which recipe to post. So let me know which one you are interested in and I'll blog about the one with the most votes.


  1. Aaaah, it looks super healthy. Are there healthy desserts and things, too?

  2. Spring kale salad! I'm also going to say the Fiesta Quinoa salad in case votes for the other aren't good enough...

  3. Oh my lord, the pad thai one for sure! It looks almost like dessert?!

  4. What's the cookbook? I definitely want to hear about fish tacos.

  5. I like the sound of the Land and Sea soba salad, AND the "fish" tacos with that salsa.

  6. Matthew, yes some desserts too but mostly savour stuff.

  7. what is the cookbook called please?
