Here is another dish we’ve introduced to our home repertoire in honour of Guinea, our Nation of the Month. Footi Sauce could most simply be described as a very Aubergine and Tomato rich stew. It’s actually not far off from a chilli and could just as easily be called “Chilli con Berenjena” Our recipe is […]
April brought with it a new “Nation of the Month” for our house. This time it was my turn to spin the virtual globe and officially declare the country we would be spending the next 30 days learning about and celebrating. And, if you haven’t heard by now, that country is Guinea! We are just […]
Swedish Meatball Sauce
One day we will share a recipe for making your own vegan meatballs from scratch. In the meantime, there are of course a lot of different recipes out there you can try, and some shops do stock ready made vegan meatballs (or “vegetable balls”, or “veggie balls”, or “Schweddy BallsTM”, whatever you like to call […]

Of course they are typically about as far away as you can get from a healthy balanced breakfast. So despite my warm affections for them I resist creating these temptations all but […]

Hello and welcome to Diced & Spiced!
Diced & Spiced is the brainchild of Daniel, with some occasional input from myself, Suzanne. You will mainly see my presence when it's time to obsess about some amazing micronutrient. I've always found food science interesting, and tend to encourage Daniel to incorporate whatever tidbits I've recently discovered into his cooking.
We are a married couple living in North Dublin, Ireland. We have both been vegetarian since childhood, and began our vegan journey last year. Daniel has worked professionally in culinary arts as a Baker and Chef for a combined 15 years (known most recently as the Head Chef of Seasons in Skerries) and has always had an avid interest in photography, writing and all things techy, hence a food blog has been haunting the to do list for some time.
Since making the switch to vegan we realised, well, it really is easier than you'd think. On this website we hope to share some of the foods we eat regularly. These include easy junk food recipes, wholefood plant based recipes, and of course, our more exotic "nation of the month" recipes, which often require a trip to the local ethnic market.
