Creamy Lemon & Herb Pasta Salad (Vegan & Gluten Free)


There's still time this summer to enjoy al fresco dining, picnics, BBQ's and light dinners. My favourite thing to make at this time of year is fresh and delicious pasta salads! I love making them to enjoy as they are, or they're particularly amazing with veggie sausages cooked on the barbecue or with some grilled fish.

This vegan creamy lemon & herb pasta salad couldn't be quicker or easier to make, but it'll wow the whole family!


The recipe is really adaptable too! I've cooked up some asparagus, cherry tomatoes and yellow courgette to add colour and goodness to the dish but you could use any veggies you fancy. Try peppers, red onion, garden peas, sweetcorn or even some olives!

Butterbean Falafels (Chickpea Free)


Earlier this year I discovered I was intolerant to chickpeas. I noticed I was bloated really badly after eating them and suffered serve tummy pains! As a massive hummus and falafel addict obviously this didn't please me, but luckily I've managed to find some really tasty alternatives that are just as yummy and just as nutritious.

One of those chickpea-free recipes is this one, for super simple Butterbean Falafels. The recipe is gluten free, vegan friendly and utterly delicious.


Personally, I always loved having falafels in my fridge for ready to go lunches - added to salads, wraps or pittas or even to munch on as healthy, filling snacks throughout the day.
Now I've created this recipe that doesn't bloat me (YAY) I've started making these falafels at the beginning of the week, so I always have healthy food to hand. You see, I find lunches the hardest meal because I never have the motivation to cook anything during the middle of the day but I still want to eat a healthy, wholesome, well balanced meal that's high in protein and is going to fuel me throughout the afternoon. That's why these falafels are so perfect - they just tick every box!

Try giving them a go this week, I promise you'll love them too!
