Celebrating Turning Fifty with all my Favourite Recipes

As I write this blog post it is one week before it will go to publication. I am writing early as I will be away next week when you receive this newsletter. In the newsletter plan it is the request week and this week I am not sending you a new recipe but answering a request that I often get. What are your favourite things to cook Veet?

The Best Gluten Free Gnocchi

This is week four of my new schedule where I post a recipe request or a recipe someone in the vegan cooking courses has developed. A couple of Vegan Foundation Cooking Courses ago the lovely Jayne and Wendy made a delicious sweet potato gnocchi and I promised them I would develop a good gluten free gnocchi recipe to share with them when I got a spare moment.

Spaghetti with Wood Ear Mushrooms and Brussel Sprouts

I’m being brave posting a recipe with Brussels in it as I know that not everyone loves them as much as I do. Don’t be put off though if you are not a Brussels lover as you can use another green veg of your choice or just leave them out all together. This sauce is a beauty. So rich and meaty (in the non animal meaty way).

Camping meals made in one pot

For those of you following Veet’s Vegan Cooking School on Instagram and Facebook you will probably remember I recently went away on a camping road trip and promised to bring back some recipes from my time on the road. Well here is the first installment. Now I am back in my big kitchen with all my fancy equipment I really miss my camp food. I love that I only had one pot to wash up and that I made just enough food for the two of us with no left overs to have to deal with.

Gluten Free Beetroot Ravioli (made from scratch and it’s easy)

A few weeks back I posted on Facebook all the things I love to make with beetroot and one of them was ravioli. One of the followers asked for the ravioli recipe and I told them I would post it in a blog post soon. I had the recipe but needed time to make it to get a photo to put with the blog post.

Spaghetti Carbanara (recipe inspired by our trip to Bali)

I don’t know about you but do holidays or time spent away always run smoothly? If I go to the Osho Meditation Resort they usually run very smoothly and usually everywhere else I go also runs relatively smoothly but then on occasion some holidays have had challenges. At the beginning of this month Makrand and I treated ourselves to twelve days in Bali to celebrate seventeen years of being together.

A Hearty Soup for Anytime of the Year

Salad is usually on my own personal menu for lunches but with a recent cold snap I decided to make a hearty soup to warm up last week. Wanting to create a new soup recipe in the fashion of a Tuscan soup with beans and pasta I found myself flicking through the Wicked Healthy cookbook and stumbled upon their fagioli recipe.

More Recipe Ideas for Children who Decide to Become Vegan

Lots of feedback came in last week from families saying they enjoyed the recipe ideas I shared for children/teenagers last week. This week I am back with more recipes for children/teenagers who decide to become vegan. I am also on the look out for lunch box ideas as I will compile them together and share in a future blog. I love seeing how creative school lunch boxes really can be with such minimal effort so would love everyone to have a really good resource of ideas.

What to Cook for the Kids When They Decide to Become Vegan

I was asked some weeks back for ideas on what to cook for children/teenagers once they decide they want to become vegan. I don’t think there is one easy answer to this as it really does depend on what the individual child/teenager likes to eat but that is actually a good place to start. You will know what your child/teenager likes to eat and from that there are two paths you can take.

Tips for Vegans and Vegetarians at Christmas

For me this has always been a difficult time of year being forced to attend events where people chow down on big bits of animal parts. Even at a so called vegetarian gathering some years ago I was gob smacked when I saw a dead chicken on the table. So I have taken the cowards way out and stay home with my beloved on Christmas day. If friends do want to catch up I offer them to come to ours and tell them not to bring anything, that way we can feast on plant based yumminess.
