There are plenty of vegan alfredo sauce recipes out there, but the soy factor has always put me off making it given I’m not big on imitation milk or cheese. So what makes this one special? It’s a vegan alfredo sauce that’s soy-free, oil-free, gluten-free and it has a healthy dose of protein, is no-cook and only takes five minutes to make.
I’ve been making a version of this vegan butter chicken for 10 years and have refined it a little more each time. Now, it’s perfect.
After a few attempts to get it ‘just right’, this dish has quickly become a weeknight staple in my household, well and truly proving that risotto can be good – and simple.
For a long time, I’ve been on the quest for a tomato-free vegetable pasta dish that is equally easy and delicious. It’s not that I have anything against tomato, more that I think there’s far more to vegetarian pasta recipes than marinara sauce – and to me that’s something worth exploring.
Another dal recipe I hear you say? Look, my tarka dal and hidden veg dal are both delicious, but this recipe is ‘the one’ for when you want something delicious but don’t want to spend much time in the kitchen.
I’ve been using my pressure cooker 2-3 times a week since I bought it. Meals cooked in it are are easier, faster and tastier. I don’t know how I lived without it… and I don’t know if I can ever go back to conventional cooking for stews, curries and soups now.
This is the whole roasted cauliflower to end all recipes for roast cauliflower. And the trick is to lightly pre-cook the cauliflower in a magic, white wine-based poaching liquid. Really, there’s not much more to say other than to read on and give it a go.
Lebanese pizza was another favourite of mine growing up. I can remember mum made it for dinner one night and I loved it so much that I asked for ‘the lamb and pine nut pizza’ again, and again, and again. After 10 years without Lebanese pizza in my life and after perfecting a good ‘mince’ for my current favourite taco recipe, I knew it would be possible to recreate as vegan.
Which brings me to these seriously tasty tofu skin rolls that sound a lot more complicated than they are. Just think of it as a new way to enjoy tofu.
I love this biryani because it’s a one pot ‘set and forget’ wonder! All you need to do is start cooking it on the stove and then transfer it to the oven where it will do it’s thing. Meals this easy feels like cheating.
