Strawberry Shortcake


If you love the idea of strawberries and cream and do enjoy an occasional treat then this recipe is indeed the one for you   Here is a rich biscuit that incorporates the magic of strawberries and cream with the addition of coconut.  This is a cross between a shortcake and muffin in texture, although somebody said she thought they were a little ‘scone-like’.  The flavour of these is insanely sublime, as is the texture […]

Extra-Cheesy Peppered Nutty Pizza Feast


This is one of the most exquisite pizzas I have ever tasted or come across – the combination of ingredients is guaranteed to tickle the tongue, whilst delivering abundant culinary joy to your meal, and your guests, if you wish to be sharing this.  It’s a memorable pizza you will make again and again.  We served ours with a wonderful crunchy coleslaw, with additional sweetcorn and chopped apple.  Bon Appétit ! Makes 2 Pizzas around […]

After Late Dinner Mints


Although I have a sporadic sweet tooth, I have always fancied the idea of a miniature after-dinner sweet. And if it has digestive qualities too – which mint undoubtedly does – then I know it’s got to be a good thing after a well-rounded dinner.  Of course, the inevitable problem lies in self-restraint – something that this little delicacy challenges on a large scale. Suffice it to say, that there was no trace left of […]

My Vegan Spanish Omelette (also known as Frittata)


This is a variation on my new vegan omelette – the Spanish Omelette is a popular dish, and an ideal way to cook an interesting array of vegetables, although traditionallhy made with potatoes, onions and parssley as the main ingredients with the eggs.  My version is illed with vegan cheese and veggies, this makes a delicious meal in itself.  This one turned out to be sublime – we’ve just had it for the second time, and […]

Rich Bean Goulash


Here is my take on a goulash – it’s vegan of course, it’s full-on on the flavour front, and it’s totally rich.  This goulash is wholesome and filling.  I have defined it well in texture and taste, and it has a distinct character of it’s own.  Serve with rice or jacket potatoes and salad, and if you wish, sour cream – it’s easy and fast to prepare. (see my  Chilli con ‘Carne’ recipe‘carne’/). A great […]

Vegan Cheese Omelette


NEW REVISED RECIPE I created an eggless vegan cholesterol-free omelette a short time ago. It was light and full of promise, but it needed a deeper, richer taste, less ‘floury’, and a more exciting texture. Making egg dishes without the use of eggs is indeed a challenge, both in the taste and especially in the texture arena. After some experimentation I reached a wonderful balance and I hope this fulfils all your egg omelette cravings, […]

Sweet Rosey Rice & Nut Pudding


This recipe expresses my deep love of Eastern Cuisine, except that I just follow my heart in the kitchen with the ingredients. It’s not really a brown rice dessert. In fact, I only use short grain white rice, or Italian arborio rice, or even sushi rice, just 2 or 3 times a year – but I can justify using it, as this dessert is really a once or twice a year one – save it […]

Organic Ruby Red Quencher


This is a super cool drink – a great thirst quencher.  Super health benefits from the ingredients – you just wanna dive straight in there . . . Makes 2 glasses INGREDIENTS (use organic for better health benefits) 15-20 fresh stawberries 2 fresh medium sized beetroots (stalks and all) 2 green apples 1 fresh lemon, peeled a few ice cubes (add when you serve in glasses) METHOD Pass your ingredients through your juice extractor.  Then […]

My Pumpkin, Ginger & Eggplant Curry


I guess this is something of a hybrid curry – pumpkin and red peppers are a staple of Thai curries, and I have combined this with Indian spices, to create an aromatic dish that is wonderfully warming. I always find eggplant (aubergine) to be an eager substitute for meat, as it manages to retain its form, and soak up all the wonderful juices. This is delicious served with a generous dollop of chutney, and naan […]

Hot-Roast Chilli Bean Ratatouille


Ratatouille and chilli, which is your favourite ?  No need to choose, as I have given you both (excluding the sweet peppers).  I have spiced this dish up to bring to the table a warm hearty delight packed with rich flavours and great texture. It’s very easy to make too – perfect for serving to guests if you don’t have the extra time to spare in the kitchen.  Enjoy ! TIP :   Best served with […]
