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.
This dish is one of my all-time favourites. I’ve been making a version of it for almost 10 years. Using an airfryer to cook the vegan chickpea meatballs does make preparing this dish easier and cleaner, but you can also pan fry them.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about how I could recreate fried rice to live up to the fading memory of mum’s recipe. This easy fried rice is the result, with oyster mushrooms taking the place that bacon once did.
Cauliflower so soft it melts like butter in your mouth around falafel stuffing. And a crisp outer layer that’s like the shell of a giant falafel. This, dear reader, is a dish I dream about.
