Vegan Recipes from The Hearth and Soul Hop

The Hearth and Soul Blog Hop
A warm welcome to The Hearth and Soul Hop, a blog hop for recipes using healthy ingredients, family and comfort food recipes, articles about healthy living, real, local and sustainable food, foraging, herbal remedies, organics and gardening. As much as possible, recipes should be homemade from scratch.

It was Mother’s Day in the UK on Sunday and we had a lovely day with family celebrating that as well as my twin nephews’ eighteenth birthdays and our dear friend Liz’s eightieth. I’ve also been working on my raised beds and was pleased to finish the herb garden over the weekend.

The Hearth and Soul Hop

We have a big L-shaped garden that wraps round our house so I’ve still got quite a lot of work to do but it’s lovely to have the herb garden done. The next project is the other raised bed which I grow vegetables in every year.

Last week, I noticed a number of recipes that would be suitable for those following a vegan diet (as well as those of us who want to cut down on the amount of animal products we consume) so I’m featuring just a few of the vegan-friendly recipes that were shared:

Grain Free Banana Snack Bars from Real Food Forager

Buckwheat Crepes with Avocado Dill Cream from Quick ‘n’ Healthy

Homemade Tofu Bacon from My Healthy Eating Habits

Brazil Nut Cheese form

Simply Fresh Guacamole from Louanne’s Kitchen

  1. Your garden looks beautiful April !!
    My Mom used to love growing her own herbs 🙂

    Thank you for the party and have a good week!

  2. Thanks for hosting April and have a great week! 🙂

  3. Happy belated Mothers Day April! Your Herb bed looks good, how old is your Rosemary bush, it looks really big. Hope you are having a great week and thanks so much for the party!

    • Thank you, Miz Helen! The Rosemary bush is about six years old now. I don’t know how it got so big as it really was only a little thing when it started out. I transplanted it to the raised bed about four years ago and it just took off. I prune it regularly too 🙂 Hope you are having a wonderful week as well!

  4. Happy Mother’s Day April.. my you were productive putting that herb garden together. My daughter claims she is going to make one for me this year. That would be a wonderful Mother’s Day gift. Thanks for the party… enjoy your Spring. Our snow has melted, but we are still cold here in NY.

  5. Thank you very much April for the party. This week I share a Raw chocolate-orange cake, which won’t take you no more than 15 minutes to make it.

    Your garden looks great. 🙂

  6. Belated Happy Mother’s Day! Thank you for the party! 🙂

  7. Hi April

    It seems quite appropriate that I’m sharing my gluten free & vegan lemon drizzle cake today! Thank you for the links to the other vegan recipes, I will have go to have a look at them.

    We couldn’t possibly plant out new plants in the North, not until the end of May usually – this guarantees there will be no frost. There is an expression used in Yorkshire time and time again – Nay cast a doubt until May is out! I remember the year my eldest was born that we had such bad snow the first week of May that my husband couldn’t get home from work!

    I would like a raised herb garden, it’s one of my projects to be, yours looks beautiful!

    Thank you for hosting!

    • Thank you, Vicky. You definitely chose the perfect recipe to share this week – and I love lemon drizzle cake!

      I know what you mean about May as we always had a rule in Canada not to plant anything before the Victoria Day weekend (around May 24th each year) as it could easily go cold or even snow. I hope the weather holds here – I’ve got my fingers crossed 🙂

  8. It sounds like you had a great weekend … and a Very Happy Mother’s Day to you! This week I’ve shared a warm milk recipe. 🙂
    ~ Christine

    • Thank you, Christine! Warm milk is so comforting – I’ll be interested to see how you prepare it 🙂 I often have it with a spoonful of vanilla sugar and a grating of nutmeg over the top.

  9. Thank you for featuring my homemade tofu bacon this week. What a lot yummy healthy food you have featured, too! And let me also say that I love you herb garden.
