Pistachio products

Borna’s pistachio products are quite unique as they’re the first brand in the UK to produce non dairy milks from pistachios, it’s also rare to find pistachio butter or snacks like the rest of their range.
Pistachios have a huge number of benefits (see more below) but this range is especially suitable for those on a diet free from animal products as their milks are fortified with vitamin B12 and calcium which are often hard to get from plant based products.

Flourless workout scones

These scones are also flourless as I’ve created these during the Covid-19 lockdown and I know many people are struggling to find flour so by using oats and grinding them into a flour (easily done in any blender/food processor) they are more accessible than standard scone flour recipes and contain more fibre than white flour versions.
Vegan protein powder can be found in many places including Boots, superdrug, Holland & Barrett, large supermarkets, Amazon or online through your favourite brands site.

Vegan creamy curry mushroom pasta

This quick, comforting mushroom pasta dish is the perfect autumn/winter meal, full of spices and flavour with the creaminess coming from coconut yogurt.
Use any curry paste that you have in your fridge, they should all work just fine and to really increase your veg & fibre intake try using a legume based pasta such as chickpea, red lentil or green pea/lentil. I personally really like red lentil with this dish.

Plant based yogurt
Plant based yogurts are really easy to get hold of these days in the big supermarkets, I’ve tried a number of them ranging from M&S to Asda, with a blend of fermented non GMO soy & coconut from Asda being the cheapest at £1, as it still has some coconut in it the flavour works fine and is still quite creamy which I really like, plus doesn’t have any sugar or a tonne of thickeners/starches etc in it.
