Easiest stuffed squash

Easiest stuffed squash

I love when I get a big fresh squash in my veg bag! Wash the outside thoroughly, cut it in half and scoop out the seeds. Roast both halves straight on the oven shelf on 375f/180c/gas mark 8. They’ll take about an hour, check to make sure they’re soft. When they’re almost done boil some(…)

Super healthy vegan nachos

I know the title probably sounds like an oxymoron but I swear to you it’s true. First off get some black beans going on the stove with some onion, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, cayenne pepper & smoked paprika For the tortilla chips skip those deep fried nasties and whip up your own. Get yourself some(…)

Kidney bean & spinach tacos

Vegan tacos can be done in numerous flavours, here’s another to add to the repertoire. Chop some garlic & chili and cook in a small pot using a splash of apple juice to keep it from sticking (instead of oil). Dump in a can of kidney beans and a big handful fresh, torn spinach. Add(…)

Sweet Potato & Black Bean Tacos with fresh Pico de Gallo

Sweet Potato & Black Bean Tacos with fresh Pico de Gallo

I’m pretty sure I’ve posted this recipe before but it’s a favourite and I thought it would be perfect for Meatless Monday! The most important thing is good taco shells. I really prefer the small batch soft corn ones, abundant in some areas and non-existent in others. Plenty of organic shops in London now stock(…)

Indian spiced slow cooker cauliflower stew

So really I should have posted this one yesterday to give you a heads up! But have no fear, you can also just steam the cauliflwer quickly and cook it up on a pot on the stove top as well. If you do it in the slow cooker it needs 2-3 hours on low or(…)

Tofu with satay sauce

Typically served over rice I sometimes skip it and just serve with some nice crusty bread and a salad of bean sprouts, thin cucumber sticks & slivers of spring onion dressed with lime juice. Cut the tofu into 1inch cubes and brown on each side. Skewer them and leave in the oven on warm. For(…)

Potato leek soup

Potato leek soup is classic but there really is no need for this beauty to be filled with dairy! Traditional versions have you sautéing the leeks in butter and finishing the broth with heavy cream. Try it my vegan way with some proper fresh organic veg and I promise you won’t miss it. For 2(…)

Balsamic Roasted Beetroot over Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Balsamic Roasted Beetroot over Garlic Mashed Potatoes

This is such a great dish for a grey, chilly, rainy, windy day like today (in London at least). Scrub 1-2 large beetroots per person, more if they’re smaller, and wrap them in foil. Put them in the oven on 180c/375f/gas mark 6 for about an hour. Put a whole bulb of garlic in the(…)

Super Low Fat Vegan Thai Curry

Super Low Fat Vegan Thai Curry

I love thai curry but the coconut milk can really be deceiving in terms of fat content so I started making mine using soy milk, soy cream & coconut essence! Start off by getting some rice going and then dry frying some slices of tofu on a tefal coated or hot cast iron pan. Wait(…)
