Fusilli with Spinach, Labneh ‘Cream Cheese’, & Roasted Black Olives


This was amazing, delicious and to die for.  Labneh is beautiful, and I have actually realized, ever so versatile.  I got an idea to mix it with pasta and see what happens, and to our surprise and delight it was so smooth and beautiful, rich yet light – I can’t explain how easy to eat this was.  I added pre-cooked spinach and tossed in some black roasted olives, drizzled on some olive oil, and garnished […]

Peasant-Style Buckwheat & Broad Bean Stew


My elder sister, who is a fantastic cook, went vegan a year or so ago.  She was a perfect cook then, and, prior to my going vegan, I always lapped up anything she prepared.  I visited her a short while back in England, and I was blown away by the amazing dishes she served us – she is also a gluten free vegan.  But this has not deterred her creations in any way.  Here is […]
