Halloumi Cheese Tart

Tweet This is truly a fun and easy tart to make, especially when you have made the halloumi recipe from my forthcoming book, YASOU, which should be available for pre-ordering very soon. If you wish to make it in advance of purchasing my book, then you can either use the Feta cheese recipe from my first book MOUTHWATERING VEGAN (available from Amazon), or any other meting vegan cheese which will work with this recipe.

Ultimate Carrot & Coconut Cake with a Soft Vanilla Frosting

Slide1

Tweet 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 […]

Broccoli Tart With A Cheesy Custard Filling

Slide1

Tweet Yet again, another ‘Chopped’ challenge in my kitchen (Ted Allen’s high-octane programme on Food Network, for those that don’t know), and what a resounding success too. Not only did this tart burst with flavour, it was also a very handsome dish indeed. I kept the accompaniment strictly in the red/pink zone – made a red cabbage, beetroot, and red onion salad served with a very exotic dressing – Heavenly ! just place in a […]

Rice, Lentil & Sausage Pot

Slide1

Tweet I confess this was one of those ‘Chopped’ moments (Ted Allen’s high-octane programme on Food Network, for those that don’t know) – from limited ingredients an amazing dish emerged. One that we all embraced, enjoyed and couldn’t get enough of. Filling, colourful, great texture, and great smell. This is an ideal dish for a busy, challenging week. Full of fibre, protein, and super flavoursome – make, cover, refrigerate and enjoy warm. It’s wholesome and […]

Cream Of Mushroom & Zucchini Pie

Slide4

Tweet 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 […]

Vegan Raw Chocolate-Carob Swiss Roll Roly Poly Log

Slide2

Tweet With Thanksgiving round the corner, it’s time to start getting cosy round the hearth, and reach out for the comfort foods – without getting to comfy round the girth, I hope ! This is a totally irresistible chocolate log, though I chose to use carob in this instance, which I thoroughly recommend because of its amazing flavour when incorporated in this way. It’s another of those raw desserts that’s right up there, rubbing shoulders […]

Rich Red Hot Chilli Salsa Gluten-Free Pizza

Slide3

Tweet 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 […]

Asparagus, Potato & Spinach Curry in a Tandoori Lime Sauce – Culinary Heaven on Earth

Slide1

Tweet I cannot describe in words how absolutely mouthwateringly delicious and sensual this curry is. I specialize in creating irresistible curries with the most superb flavours, colours and textures, as well as mind-blowing aromas that emanate from these delights – whilst this gem was cooking, a Heavenly scent worked its way around the house, which smelt like a real high-class curry joint.  I served it with wonderful Libyan bread (Fteera), on a bed of wild […]

Epic Veggie Loaf with a Chilli Tomato Glaze

Slide1

Tweet 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 […]

Luscious Lime & Bean Guacamole

Slide3

Tweet 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 […]
