Hello! Welcome to Ellie Likes Cooking where I share all the plant-based recipes I love to cook. You can expect to find:

  • Japanese and Asian-inspired dishes
  • reduced sugar sweet treats (I love desserts but they’re often way too sweet for me)
  • easy, budget-friendly meals
  • gluten-free options whenever possible
  • cooking tips and ingredient substitutions with every recipe

While I hope you’ll find some new go-to dishes, I also hope to inspire you to be more creative and confident in the kitchen! Everyone’s taste buds are different, so you don’t need to follow each recipe to a tee (although when baking is involved, I do recommend you at least follow the recipe the first time around before tweaking it). With cooking, you can taste and adjust seasonings as you go. Trust your taste buds, they know what you like. You don’t have to be professionally trained in order to make tasty home cooked meals!

A little about me

I’m a passionate self-taught food photographer and recipe creator. I’ve been making messes in the kitchen since I was 12, and 10 years later, after finishing university, I decided to trade in my Nutrition degree for a camera and a kitchen. I love making simple, feel-good recipes that don’t compromise on taste or nutrition. I focus on plant-based recipes as my diet is 98% plant-based (on certain occasions I may eat eggs or seafood), and I believe incorporating more plant-based meals in one’s diet is (for a generally healthy person) beneficial to their health and the environment.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you find a recipe you like and come back for more 🙂
