Vegan punchy coriander and ginger ‘curry’

I’m not really sure if this should be called a curry (as it doesn’t have the traditional ‘curry’ like flavours), but is punchy and full of flavour. I make it regularly and it has always done me proud! The huge amounts of garlic, ginger and coriander may seem a bit much – but trust me, […]

Beetballs

I think these gluten free vegan beetballs are wonderful dipped in horseradish. If that sounds a bit odd or if you fancy something a bit more substantial, you could just have them instead of meatballs with gluten free pasta and a rich tomato sauce. Ingredients (serves two) 3 cooked beetroots 1 carrot 1 red onion […]

Jerk Tofu

This really simple side dish that will go well with any East Asian meal. It takes no time to make but adds a lot to a meal. Four cloves of garlic might seem a lot for the this dish, but it is meant to be garlicky. Ingredients 1 pack of pak choi 4 cloves of […]

Roasted red pepper and tomato soup

This is a very sweet soup – when you taste it you’ll be amazed you have not included any sugar. Keep any leftovers for a pasta sauce – simply reduce the mixture by cooking for a while longer and add more chilli flakes to liven it up a bit. Ingredients (serves 4) 4 red peppers […]
