Creamy Asparagus Soup - Vegan, Gluten Free

Soup and Bread is a match made in Heaven. Nothing beats a good hearty dinner like a bowl of soup, some warm bread and butter. This soup uses some fresh ingredients. And you would not believe how creamy it is considering I have not used any cream or milk. There is no flour to make the roux either. The taste of Asparagus is predominant. The potatoes add to the creaminess of the soup. You can add some chilli flakes while serving the soup to add a subtle spiciness.

Zucchini Oats Patties - Vegan

Zucchini makes a wonderful ingredient for Patties and fritters. Now the key for me was to make it Vegan and Healthy. Most of the times, you will see egg being used as a binder. I did not obvoiusly want to use egg, but neither did I have any flax to substitute. But the moisture from the zucchini is more than enough binder for this patty.

Vegan Double Chocolate Muffin - Chocolate Banana Muffin

Who does not love Chocolate? So when it comes to chocolate, the more the better. Don't you agree? Its been a while since I baked cake/muffin etc. Have been just baking breads/pizza etc lately. Last week it was half term holidays. My son and I decided to make something to enjoy, like old times. We used to do a lot of baking together last year when he was less busy with school, after school etc. It was loads of fun.

I have tried to make it as healthy as I can. Sugar used is lesser than I used before. I am thinking I can reduce it a little bit more next time. This did seem quite sweet. It came out moist and yumm. Note to self - Double to recipe next time :-)
