Rice, Lentil & Sausage Pot

Slide1

I confess this was one of those ‘Chopped’ moments (Ted Allen’s high-octane programme on Food Network, for those that don’t know) – from limited ingredients an amazing dish emerged. One that we all embraced, enjoyed and couldn’t get enough of. Filling, colourful, great texture, and great smell. This is an ideal dish for a busy, challenging week. Full of fibre, protein, and super flavoursome – make, cover, refrigerate and enjoy warm. It’s wholesome and nutritious […]

Cream Of Mushroom & Zucchini Pie

Slide4

So yesterday I wanted to bake a pie fit for a king, as a long-standing friend of ours was due to have a late lunch with us – he is not vegan, but he loves my food. I must admit that this pie was rather exceptional – we all shared it, 2 large portions each. Yes, we over-ate because it was so very good. Puff pastry has such a character, and is the perfect carb […]

Rich Red Hot Chilli Salsa Gluten-Free Pizza

Slide3

I think that by now, those of you who are familiar with my recipe repertoire, will know that I love a variety of different food. I am addicted to diverse colours and textures, satisfying mouthfeel, wonderful taste and aroma, anything else that makes the senses feel alive and kicking. So, today is a gluten-free day – but everybody is demanding pizza, pizza, pizza from the Mouthwatering Vegan kitchen. I’ve been wanting to turn my hand […]

Asparagus, Potato & Spinach Curry in a Tandoori Lime Sauce – Culinary Heaven on Earth

Slide1

I cannot describe in words how absolutely mouthwateringly delicious and sensual this curry is. I specialize in creating irresistible curries with the most superb flavours, colours and textures, as well as mind-blowing aromas that emanate from these delights – whilst this gem was cooking, a Heavenly scent worked its way around the house, which smelt like a real high-class curry joint.  I served it with wonderful Libyan bread (Fteera), on a bed of wild rice. […]

Epic Veggie Loaf with a Chilli Tomato Glaze

Slide1

I don’t know about you, but even though the summer seasons come and go, I find myself craving what others would term as ‘Winter comfort food’ – it happens to me every summer. Anyhow, I always succumb to this craving, and off the back of it, I have created a wondrous loaf, that I served with a simple coleslaw – a green salad would have worked just as well. In the winter months you could […]

Luscious Lime & Bean Guacamole

Slide3

This guacamole was born from one missing avocado at the eleventh hour yesterday, but you know sometimes a mishap can be converted into something quite beautiful. This rich protein-packed dip is smooth and, frankly, delicious – this was confirmed by the gusto of our guests. We are now seriously addicted to this version, and here is the recipe for your delight. Great with crudités, on my crunchy flax crackers (recipe to follow soon), on bread, […]

Panch Puren & Caramel Vegetable Curry

Slide1

In part this curry is influenced by a secret technique my mother used to implement, I am so grateful to be making use of it, and to now be sharing it with you all. Cumin, Fenugreek, Mustard, Fennel and Kalonji come together to yield the most amazing and ‘easy to make of’ curries that I’ve created as a treat for tonight’s dinner for my little girl and for my partner. I have also created this […]

Raw Cream Of Rucola & Parsley Pesto With Sundried Tomatoes & Zucchini Spaghetti

Slide4

This really is most, most magnificent in taste and texture, quite apart from its health benefits, which are a huge bonus to this delight. In summer I love cooking raw at least once a week, enjoying a mixture of raw food and non-raw foods only slightly heated up to below 115ºC so that they retain their nutrients and enzymes. I cannot tolerate food without flavour, and I set myself a challenge (something I cannot resist) to […]

Hot Velvet Pioppini Mushrooms with Fat Raisins in Bulghur Wheat

Slide2

Velvet Mushrooms, also known as black poplar mushrooms, taste magnificent, with a hint of the forest. They are so versatile too. Here I created a wonderful dish made with Bulghur Wheat and seasoned with soya sauce, olive oil, agave, vegan butter, and Himalayan salt. The mushrooms are succulent, and full of flavour, in spite of their size. The dish comes together beautifully with the addition of chilli and sultanas, with garnishes of almond and chopped […]

The Ultimate Genius Vegan Eggs (click link to see more pics)

Slide6

Apparently my infamous ‘egg’ recipes have been plagiarized and copied all over the web, and have even found their way into at least one known cookery book – but make no mistake, this creation is completely my own, and one that I have been working on for well over a couple of years now. My ‘Perfect Vegan Fried Egg . . . Sunny Side Up’ even featured on Yahoo Voices (see below) back in 2013. […]
