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. […]

Mousse au Chocolat with Air Bubbles ! (Chocolate Mousse)

Slide 2

This sure is a breakthough in vegan cuisine.   A short while ago there was talk on FB somewhere that if you beat the liquid from a can of chickpeas (called – aquafaba), then it will froth into a meringue, and they weren’t wrong either. I adapted this theory, and was not interested in just making a meringue. I had done that a year or so ago with other ingredients, but I was intrigued with […]

My Iranian Eggplant & No-Beef Style Stew – Koresh Bademjan

Slide1

I created a Middle Eastern Style Stew but with different spices. We devoured it in one sitting and loved it – it is inspired by my love for all things Middle Eastern, the stews I had at family sittings as a child, and my insatiable love for curry spices and East Indian food. It’s fast to make, and you’ll love this. It has a little trick to make the vegan meat meatier, and it worked […]

Coffee Cream Curry with Rose Basmati Rice & Baked Sweet Bombay Potatoes

Coffee Curry compilation

This is a unique curry which will have you hooked. The flavours of coffee, cream and orange zest marry well with the warm spices of red chilli, hot curry, fresh ginger, garlic and onions. The end result is a succulent, mouthwatering, slightly sweet curry with crazy texture, aroma and taste – a real, real treat, and with the surprising burst of giant black sultanas, it will have you wanting more and more. I created a […]
