Vegan Avocado Pesto Pasta

Personally I am not a fan of processed white flour in general but since I do not have any gluten or wheat issues, my favourite pasta is actually wholemeal pasta. I also enjoy spelt. Durum wheat semolina flour used in pasta is actually quite different to flour used in bread, it has a much lower gluten concentration so it is less likely to create a digestive upset,

No-Bake Vegan Plum Vanilla Jelly Tart

When I first made this cake a while ago I never intended to blog it because it is the exact same recipe as my vegan baked vanilla cheesecake but with the addition of blueberries and a little lemon zest.

Addressing these issues is what brings about real change, and only after these problems are rectified is it ok to lean on these foods for extra support.

Vegan Blueberry Lemon Custard Tart

I'm not really sure what to say about this tart other than my husband ate 3/4 of the whole thing in one sitting! There was something about this flavour combination that really really worked.
