Rich Red Hot Chilli Salsa Gluten-Free Pizza

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 […]

INGREDIENTS FOR MAKING ‘HARD-BOILED EGG WHITE’ 1½ cups (375ml) soya milk, or any other creamy non-sweetened vegan milk of your choice under ½ tsp kala namak (otherwise known as black salt – it has a sulphuric “egg” flavour, so is essential for this recipe (you should find this at your local […]

Stuffed Mediterranean Loaf – Super Mouthwatering Treat

I stuffed a loaf with my Giardiniera recipe last year, but since I had run out of my giardiniera, I made this delicious delight with the contents of my fridge – and it was truly one of the best snacks I’ve had in my life !  It is such a treat, crunchy on the outside and full of colour, with contrasting texture and wonderful tastes on the inside – one bite and your bought, sold, […]

Hot Balls in Hot Fresh Tomato Sauce on Hot Pitta Bread

We had a rare situation at home today – warring factions over what to eat for dinner ! My partner wanted my ‘Keftethes’, whilst my daughter wanted spicy pizza.  The only answer ? To keep them both happy by serving spicy ‘meatballs’ on something close to a pizza – well, in this case, pitta bread – which I first covered with a delicious hot tomato sauce.  Both of them went crazy, and I had the […]

Maltese Style Baked Macaroni

Crunchy on top, yet moist in the middle, this is a favourite dish in our home. In many households this dish is traditionally made with a mixture of minced meat (ground crumble),  usually both pork and beef mixed. They then bind it with eggs – I used tofu instead which did a great job.  Cheese is added, which also helps the mixture to bind – I used my own homemade cheese, but use whatever you […]

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 […]

Hot Spinach, Olive & Artichoke Pie

This pie is simply scrumptious !!!  I am so proud of this creation of mine.  It’s definitely child-friendly, my 7 year old daughter loved it, and had seconds.  I have to say, it’s one of the best vegan pies out there, and you’ll be going back for more.  Full of flavour, aroma, texture, colour, and a visual feast – honestly, this is an impressive piece of work that you will repeat again and again.  It’s […]

Super-Easy Savoury Festive Balls with an Orange Twist

These are super easy to make, delightful and kids love them too.  Enjoy !

Vegan Shakshuka – ‘Breakfast In Israel’

This recipe is dedicated to the people of Israel who have embraced veganism, and to my good friend Gary Yourofsky, who is touring Israel for a second time this month, and who has helped to enlighten so many people in Israel to the benefits of veganism. This recipe is a daily staple in Israel, very often eaten for breakfast, or as a light lunch.  Its origins are thought to have been rooted in Africa – […]
