Hot Sexy Potato Wedges

I am obsessed with potatoes, I have sometimes made this with a mixture of sweet potatoes as well as ordinary ones, so mix and match as you please. They are more-ish, I warn you, and are a meal in themselves, especially when served with your favourite green herb salad with a little onion. Also ideal for b’que accompaniment ! Use your imagination, as these potatoes marry well with vegan sausages as well as vegan burgers, […]

Gob-Smacked Sticky Tofu Burgers

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 […]

Ultimate Carrot & Coconut Cake with a Soft Vanilla Frosting

This is definitely the best carrot cake I have ever made – not visually, but as far as taste is concerned. We couldn’t stop indulging, one bite after another and well, it was so addictive. I really am totally chuffed by the result. So, go make, bake, shake and enjoy because you will love this treat.   Make your frosting first.   INGREDIENTS FOR FROSTING 150g vegan cream cheese, pre-chilled (I used Tofutti) 4 Tbsp […]

Cream Of Mushroom & Zucchini Pie

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 […]

My Vegan Lemon Meringue Pie

Lemon meringue is an old English favourite, and for me it is so reminiscent of childhood.  As with so many nostalgic recipes, I had it marked down on my list of ‘must veganize’ dishes.  Well this one has really surpassed all expectations, and has all those yummy qualities of the original.  With the help of egg replacer, I managed to recreate a light meringue, and also the wonderful lemony filling.  Once again proving that, although […]

Glamorgan ‘Sausages’ In Eggplant ‘Bacon’ Wraps

A Glamorgan sausage is a traditional Welsh sausage, with the main ingredients being leek and cheese.  So I thought this should be an obvious candidate to be veganized.  But I must admit, the Glamorgan sausages I had in my pre-vegan days were a bit on the boring side, so I decided to liven my version up a bit.  I was inspired by the ‘devils on horseback’ recipe, which is usually prunes or dates wrapped in […]
