Peel the butternut squash, remove the seeds and cut into cubes. Chop 1 onion and fry in a bit of oil. Once done add 300ml of water and all other ingredients. Cook until the butternut squash is done (15-20min) and the flavours have developed nicely. Either blend with a hand blender or pour into a heat resistant blender and blend until you get a smooth soup.

For the pumpkin seed creme, add all ingredients into a small blender and blend until you get a smooth creme. You might have to add a bit more plant based milk for the right consistency.

Serve the soup with a pumpkin seed creme and the optional but very recommended splash of dark pumpkin seed oil (I normally buy mine in Austria or at Kipferl in London. The also have an online shop where you can buy it (click here). Enjoy!

And if you have some butternut squash left over why not try BBQ butternut squash skewers.

Toasted Italian sandwich with tomato and mushroom topping

Yesterday when I was coming home after the gym all I wanted was a quick sandwich with hummus, but shock horror I was running out of it - a nightmare scenario for any vegan... I was beat and had no desire to leave my house again and go to the supermarket, so I had to quickly improvise. I threw my keys on the table, checked the contents of my fridge, found tomatoes, onion and mushrooms and got working. The result is this delicious toasted Italian sandwich that was super quick and easy to make with the simplest of ingredients.

As I was approached to cater at a wedding in London I thought it would be a good idea to upload a few more canapé recipes. So I used my vegan fish cake recipe, dressed it nicely and also added a delicious tahini dressing to it as well. This is a perfect snack for your event.
