This warm salad is inspired by a side dish I ate at a restaurant while on holiday in New York. After all these years, I still think of it – and when I can go back to enjoy it again.
When I first made this falafel nourish bowl, I wasn’t sure if it was really good, or whether I just thought that because it satisfied the craving that burned within. I can confirm it’s definitely the former – this nourish bowl is really good. (And really filling).
Vinegar is the ingredient that has restored my faith in gluten-free vegan baking – take this blueberry upside-down cake, for example.
Homemade coconut bacon is my preferred non-meat ‘bacon’. Here, I’ve paired it with a classic BLAT (in salad form) – because a BLT is good, but what is life without avocado?
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.
While these don’t mimic sausages in the traditional sense of being juicy and tender – and wrapped in sausage skin – they’re a good non-meat alternative, with the chickpeas giving a good protein boost.
I recently realised that since giving up wheat, I haven’t spent a lot of time revisiting my tabbouleh days. When I whipped up this test batch of wheat-free quinoa tabbouleh, it was clear that ignoring it for all these years was a huge mistake.
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.
This recipe for baked sweet potato with white beans and parsley seaweed pesto butter is about breathing new life into seaweed – to prove it can do a lot more than embrace rice in sushi. After trying this recipe, you’ll agree with me that it can.
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.
