Roasted Vegetable and Chickpea Casserole

I love meals that I can cook in the oven. It’s so easy to just chop up some veg, add a few other ingredients, put it in the oven and I can get other stuff done while it’s cooking! This casserole has a few of our favourite vegetables, as well as potatoes and chickpeas so it’s a whole meal in one dish, so less washing-up to do too.

3 Ingredient Cookies

I hadn’t made these in a while but when my kid wants cookies, and he wants them NOW, I know just what to make. They are the perfect snack, healthy, soft, and chewy, and they take about 15 minutes to make. You probably even have the ingredients already!


Makes about 4-5 cookies, so use the same ratio and increase the amount as you like

1 cup of porridge oats

1 banana

A handful of raisins

Optional extras: whatever you like but I add a little ground flax seed and cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Mash all the ingredients together in a bowl. I find this easiest to do with my hands, if a bit messy.

Form into small cookie shapes with your hands, and bake for about 12 minutes until slightly crispy on the outside. Best enjoyed fresh from the oven!

Spicy Roasted Potatoes, Cauliflower and Chickpeas

This is kinda a cheat recipe because I use a pre-made spice mix, but sure whatever makes life easier when you have kids (or don’t have kids, just a busy life!). This has become our favourite meal at the moment, and I’ve been making it at least once a week. The kids can’t get enough of it and I’m very happy about that. Rian has even been saying that cauliflower is his favourite food! Since the kids love it so much, I had to share it.

Vegan and Gluten-Free Carrot Cake

As I’ve mentioned in some other blog posts, I have coeliac disease so eat a strict gluten-free diet. I don’t talk about it much on the blog, because it’s a vegan blog, and is not about health or gluten-free recipes, but all the food I cook does happen to be gluten-free, and my recipes on my blog are either all gluten-free or can be made gluten-free, depending on what type of flour, pasta, etc. that you use. I know a lot of people looking for gluten-free and vegan cake recipes, and in general for vegan cake recipes, so thought I would share this recipe.

Roasted Beetroot Salad with Soya Yoghurt Dressing

This is a really simple recipe that I made a few times recently.  I’m going to be starting baby led weaning with Síofra in a few weeks and I thought this would be a great recipe for baby led weaning, so decided to share it.  But it’s also good for older kids and grown ups.  Me and the kids love beetroot.  This recipe is very healthy and makes a nice side dish, or pair it with one or two other salads as a light lunch.  It’s also very pretty, and I think kids who like pink would love it!

Roasted Carrot and Houmous Roll-Ups

After making my Carrot Hot Dogs I had the idea to use roasted carrot in these wrap roll-ups things.  My kids love wraps, but I find they’re much easier for them to eat if they’re rolled up and sliced into little bite-size pieces like this.  They love it!  I thought the carrots would go really well with houmous, and make these a very nutritious snack.  They also would work well for lunch boxes or kids’ party food!
