Vegan banana and raisin baked porridge (Mingau de forno de banana e uva passa)

If you haven’t tried making baked porridge (or oatmeal), you must! This is my new addiction. It’s delicious and super easy to make.

Vegan pancakes with raspberries and caramel (Panquecas veganas com framboesas e doce de leite)

Pancakes are one of my favourite things to eat for breakfast. I have tried so many different recipes you’d not believe!

Vegan sweet potato shepherd’s pie (Torta vegana ‘shepherd’s pie’ com batata doce)

The days are getting chillier and they ask for comfort food. There’s something very comforting and heart warming about Shepherd’s Pie. Traditional Shepherd’s pie contains ground beef, but there ain’t no beef in this girl’s kitchen, instead we’re going for a yummy brothy hearty veggie and mushroom combo. VEGAN SWEET POTATO SHEPHERD’S PIE PREP TIME: 20mins… Continue reading Vegan sweet potato shepherd’s pie (Torta vegana ‘shepherd’s pie’ com batata doce)
