I know everyone thinks they can make a risotto but there is an art to it. A good risotto is all about time. It can’t be rushed. You have to add the stock little by little until you get that lovely, creamy consistency that marks out a really good risotto. Ingredients (serves 4): 300g […]Read more "Mushroom Risotto"
These individual “Chicken” & Mushroom pies are creamy and tasty inside, with a nice homely smell from the hot, cooked pastry, herbs and wine. I make no excuses for taking advantage of shop-bought foods like ready-made puff pastry and Quorn “chicken” pieces from the supermarket. Let’s be realistic, we all have time constraints and our […]Read more "Vegan Chicken and Mushroom pies"
I’ve been a vegan for a year but it took only a few days before I learned to loathe vegan “cheeses”. None of the so-called vegan cheeses taste like the dairy versions. So it’s going to be a tough ask to make a macaroni cheese that tastes like the original, authentic comfort food we all […]Read more "Macaroni Cheeze (the vegan version of Mac’n’Cheese and it tastes great)"

I found Rose Elliot’s fantastic Mushroom Pate en Croute and adapted it a little but the credit is all hers. I’d […]Read more "Mushroom Centrepiece Plait (aka Mushrooms en Croute)"
There are lots of variations of moussaka from the countries of the eastern Mediterranean and the Balkans. Some versions contain meat (usually some kind of mince, in fact) but this classic Lebanese moussaka is meat-free by default so it is ideal for vegans and vegetarians. You could easily pimp up this recipe with extra layers of sliced vegetables. Courgettes, potatoes and sliced […]Read more "Lebanese Moussaka"
This recipe is for baked seitan. In both texture and taste, seitan is ideal for making a veganised meatloaf, or for cutting into beef-like pieces or strips, or for replacing ground minced beef e.g. in tacos and tortillas. Seitan is made from vital wheat gluten – the protein found in wheat. There’s a very good explanation […]Read more "Seitan (baked seitan, for meatloaf, for beef-like pieces and for replacing ground, minced beef)"
If you cook, you’ll probably recognise this sequence of events: You find a recipe online.
