Coffee Cream Curry with Rose Basmati Rice & Baked Sweet Bombay Potatoes

This is a unique curry which will have you hooked. The flavours of coffee, cream and orange zest marry well with the warm spices of red chilli, hot curry, fresh ginger, garlic and onions. The end result is a succulent, mouthwatering, slightly sweet curry with crazy texture, aroma and taste – a real, real treat, and with the surprising burst of giant black sultanas, it will have you wanting more and more. I created a […]

Rich Spicy Lentil & Sweetcorn Chilli


Have I said it before ? I think so. I love chilli like the sunshine. Yup, I love the spices and textures, I love the bright vibrant colours, and I adore the taste. Here I use a combination of lentils and sweetcorn, both opposite in texture and colour, bringing visual joy to the table. This dish tastes great as a wrap filler or as a filling for a sweet jacket potato, and that is how […]

Monster Beet Burger


These taste great. Serve with oven baked veggies, courgettes, aubergines, tomatoes and sweet potatoes – alongside a green herb fresh salad (use coriander/cilantro and basil).  For an all gluten-free option use pre-cooked short grain brown rice.   Makes around 4 burgers   INGREDIENTS 2 cups cooked pearl barley 2 beetroot, peeled and cooked (don’t overcook it), then when cooled, grate (drain if needed) and set aside 1½ cups sugar-free pineapple, roughly chopped 1 tin red […]

Best Ever Vegan (Christmas) Fruit Cake


This awesome boiled fruit cake is a firm family favourite in our household, and will definitely be on the table over Christmas. I first tasted this awesome recipe many years ago, back in the days when I was vegetarian – I loved it and I have been missing it ever since. So I retrieved the family recipe, and set out to veganize it, in the hope that it worked. It was every bit as good […]

Chocolate & Cream French Toast With Pan Seared Bananas, Cinnamon & Salted Peanuts


There is no getting away from the fact that this is decadent in the extreme, and . . . well . . . very, very naughty. But what the heck, the festive areason is round the corner, we’re wrapped up inside for a cosy winter, and this is exactly what we’re craving at this moment – even if it is contrary to all our dietary instincts. It’s actually very simple to make, and my take […]

Pumpkin, Rosemary & Sundried Tomato Farfalle

Slide1 64

This dish is a must-keep, and promises subtle but distinct flavours mixed together.  The pumpkin’s subtle flavour, the rosemary distinct flavour, a little chilli and the sundried tomatoes are wonderful companions to this marriage.  Very child friendly (I remove the chilli seeds from the chilli). INGREDIENTS 400g fresh pumpkin (the more orange in colour the better), chopped into small squares 8 sundried tomato halves, chopped 2 to 3 cloves garlic 1 cup (250 ml) vegetable […]

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 […]

Double Devilled Choc N Orange Mousse Cheesecake


This recipe was inspired by the famous Terry’s Chocolate Orange, which we used to enjoy as children. A combination that works so well, that I had to base my next vegan cheesecake around it !   INGREDIENTS FOR BASE 1 cup pecan nuts (you may slightly toast these if you wish) ½ cup toasted sunflower seeds 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (natural cacao powder can be purchased from here in the US, or from here […]

Basmati Tomatoed Spiced Rice with Spinach, Mushroom & Cheese


This is a beautiful dish.  I say this because it looks wonderful, and has the most amazing of flavours.  It is easy to prepare and is one of my favourite rice dishes.  I sometimes make enough for 2 days, as it comes in handy if you’re too busy to cook daily, and it keeps well in the fridge in an air-tight container.  It is a kind of fusion, with both Greek and Indian notes.  Try […]
