Vegan Greek-Style Roast “Lamb” (Kleftiko)

Slide15

Kleftiko literally means “in the style of the klephts”, and traditionally this is lamb slow-baked on the bone, first marinated in garlic and lemon juice, originally cooked in a pit oven. It is said that the klephts, bandits of the countryside who did not have flocks of their own, would steal lambs or goats and cook the meat in a sealed pit to avoid the smoke being seen.   Well, in spite of my having […]

Pumpkin & Cashew Nut Ravioli in a Rich Piccante Sauce

Slide7

This post is from our new sister site The Spice Maniac ! Malta is lucky to have Daniel Mangion – I can only describe him as a pasta genius, but it doesn’t quite stop there. Not only is his pasta incredibly delicious, but he also makes vegan pasta with the most delightful and decadent plant-based fillings. Here we indulge in a Pumpkin & Cashew Cheese filling, and he really packs them up, so that when […]

Gob-Smacked Sticky Tofu Burgers

80:DSC_0044_2

This recipe is a gift to you from my book ‘Mouthwatering Vegan’ (published by Random House 2013), available from Amazon US or Amazon UK along with most other major online & retail booksellers.   From the point of view of taste – this has got to be one of the tastiest burgers I have ever had. I am not going to say much about it because I’m gob-smacked at the result. It’s spicy, a little […]

My Vegan Tava

166:DSC_0030 CROPPED

This recipe is a gift to you from my book ‘Mouthwatering Vegan’ (published by Random House 2013), available from Amazon US or Amazon UK along with most other major online & retail booksellers.   My yearning for Greek food comes to me from time to time – maybe it’s my genes reminding me that embedded in the Med somewhere, I sprouted into life, and it’s thanks to my parental lineage (my father a Greek Cypriot, […]

Stuffed Cauliflower Baked with Crispy Zucchini Spirals in a Lemon & Mustard Dressing

Slide5

Look and see what an impressive feast I have created for you. It’s a great deal easier to make than meets the eye. If you don’t have a spiralizer, you will need to use an equivalent kitchen gadget or tool (see this link for further help).   Anyhow, it’s fast approaching Easter, so many of us will be needing some inspiration for Easter lunch. I think this magnificent dish will more than fit the bill […]

Mapled Smoked ‘Beef’ & Spinach Pie

Slide4

Serves 2-3 hungry eaters   It was most difficult to title this pie because the filling has so many exotic flavours, and it’s simply addictive. Slight sweet tones from the maple, and smoky undertones from the smoked paprika, as well as other interesting culinary dimensions – this pie will be a ‘go-to again and again’ recipe for the cold winter months. My daughter had seconds so it really must have hit the mark – a […]

Best Ever Vegan Aloo Gobi !

Slide1

Probably one of the best tasting aloo gobi’s ever. One of my dearest Indian friends always used to tell me that my aloo gobi was better than her mum’s, and her mum was a great cook – so that was a well appreciated compliment. I think this delight tastes better the day after it has been cooked – if that is not possible, try and make it in the morning for serving at dinner time. […]

The ‘fish’ won’t be as white as fish from the ocean, but the taste will be satisfying and enjoyable. Make sure you have salt and vinegar to hand, and also a thousand island dressing (see my recipe […]

Banana & Peanut Breakfast Loaf

This is a delicious breakfast loaf. Serve with dairy free butter or margarine, and spread thickly. It’s great with a hot cup of Earl Grey tea. It’s child friendly, and you’ll really love it at that time of day when you feel like a carb boost. You can use other nuts, or even chopped dried fruit in it if you wish.   INGREDIENTS 150 ml (5¼ fl oz) soya milk 2 tsp apple cider vinegar […]
