Oil Free Sun Dried Tomato Hummus – Vegan Recipes

By | Dublin, Food, Healthy, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Mindfulness, Motivational, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing

I love hummus. Everyone loves hummus, especially vegans. It’s great on toast, with salads, as a sandwich filling and so much more. The only thing is store bought hummus and most traditional recipes use a lot of oil in their recipes. Now extra virgin olive oil has plenty of health benefits, omegas and essential fatty acids that are important in any diet, vegan or not. But, when you have a hummus addiction like me all this oil starts to accumulate,…

By | Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Healthy, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Mindfulness, Motivational, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing

Risotto is one of those dishes that people order in a restaurant, but rarely make at home. And of course classic risotto is laced with butter, cheese and oil, not the healthiest and not for vegans for sure. This recipe is for a really tasty risotto that you can make and serve for dinner, everyone will like it even non-vegans 😉 This is not the traditional way to make a risotto, this simply my Sunday evening improvisation when I want…

Veganuary and Beyond! A Normal Meat-Eating Guy Gone Vegan.

By | Food, HappyFood, Healthy, Lenka, Matt Quigley, Vegan

The expression ‘Cart Before the Horse’ comes to mind very much when I think of how I’ve went about things with pretty much everything I’ve done in my life. I started teaching Yoga before I had ever been to a Yoga class. I headed off to India to learn how to teach it before I had ever been to a Yoga studio or even knew one Yoga teacher. I started YogaHub cause it seemed like a good idea at the…

Perfect Vegan Pancakes

By | Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Healthy, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Mindfulness, Motivational, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing

Some Sundays I wake up and really want a lazy, quick, breakfast. Pancakes on the weekend are always a good idea to me, but eating stodgy dough made using eggs, milk and refined flour never leaves anyone feeling good. Pancakes seem impossible at first for a vegan breakfast, how do you replace eggs and milk, (and in my case the gluten in the flour) ? But I knew soaking chia seeds, plus a combination of banana would replace the eggs,…

A few weeks ago I was going to a birthday dinner, a 24th birthday, where 5 out of the 10 there were vegan, the rest avid carnivores. I volunteered to make the birthday cake, someone suggested cheesecake so I thought here’s my chance to show the meat eaters how amazing vegan food is (on the sly) This is a combination of a few recipes I’d watched on Youtube before and mostly just me making it up on the spot. I’m…

Easy Vegan Japanese Style Soup – HappyFood

By | Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Ireland, Mindfulness, Motivational, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing

The other day I just thought what better way to warm up in winter than rich umami flavours in a delicious vegan soup? I spent nearly 4 months in Asia over the summer and since returning have been craving lots of the flavours that just aren’t found in many western dishes. This dish is by no means authentic, it’s a recipe I concocted that’s both vegan and gluten free, 2 things not very common in miso soups and ramen as the broths are…
