Vegan Bara Brith

Vegan Bara Brith

This recipe came from Sarah Philpott (see link below). I did add walnuts and dried dates into the mix and reduced the mixed dried fruit. This meant I used a bit more of the tea to soak everything - and definitely leave it overnight. Ingredients – 400g dried mixed...

Leek and Potato soup

Leek and Potato soup

The weather feels more like October than the start of spring, so I have admitted defeat on today and made a nourishing, warming soup. Then I realised it's St Davids day on Sunday, so this is also for my family in Wales. Ingredients (makes enough for about 6 servings...

Cashew nut aioli

Cashew nut aioli

The other day I was craving something fresh and green to eat and I'd been thinking about a platter of clean, vegetable crudites and a dip. I thought I would have a try at vegan aioli - the name aioli means "garlic and oil" in Catalan and Provençal but it usually has...

Mushrooms on sourdough

It's back to work tomorrow - meh. This means stocking up the freezer with healthy, nutritious meals that can be on my plate within minutes, avoiding the "thing on toast" or "bowl of cereal" options that are too often an easy way out when I am tired. One of my...

Masterchef Pea Risotto

Masterchef Pea Risotto

I love Masterchef.  Obviously the reliance on meat and fish is more than annoying but I love the passion of the contestants and I always pick up a few tips along the way.  I like to play “vegan invention test” (what would I make out of that stuff on the bench) and...

Sicilian Arancini

Sicilian Arancini

These rice balls are a quintessentially Sicillian snack and the flavours and shapes vary across the island. You find them in almost every bar or restaurant you stop at and they look wonderful.  Unfortunately, I didn’t find any vegan versions (they tend to be filled...

Sicilian Caponatina

Sicilian Caponatina

This is a typically Sicillian dish.  Similar to the more ubiquitous caponata, the Sicillian version is finely diced rather than the large vegetable pieces in caponata. Sweet and sour notes are the key to this dish.   Although there are as many different versions as...
