After the naughty but decadent recipe I shared with you last week I thought a healthy recipe was in store for this week. It’s week one in my schedule of blog posts which means book review week and while this warm winter salad doesn’t feature in any particular book (my own creation) I feel I was inspired by Hetty Mckinnon’s book Family. It is not a vegan cook book but well worth a mention.
How are you? Did you miss me? I took a two week break from writing blogs to try and catch up and have plenty of recipes for you in the upcoming weeks. Hope you didn’t miss the recipes too much. This week I am showcasing Bok Choy as the seasonal vegetable for the month. Right now where I live Bok Choy is in season and the bunches are beautiful. While the protein content of Bok Choy is actually very low it does contain a wonderful amount of other nutrients making it a super healthy vegetable to add to your diet.
It’s children’s recipe week this week and this is a good one to make with the whole family. Put aside 1½ hours so that you can make it with ease and fun. Put on some fun music and get into the swing of cooking as a family. Go to my facebook page to see the video I did on how to make the tortilla. If you don’t have a tortilla press you can roll out the flour with a rolling pin (dusted with corn flour) and cut out round shapes with a wide glass or biscuit cutter.
Wow what a week. How has it been for you? How are you? I really would love to know how you are all coping with the COVID -19 ‘pandemic.’ Thank you to everyone who wrote to me after the last newsletter. I so appreciate it. Also feel free to write with any questions you may have around cooking. I have plenty of time right now.
Who has never had Tuna Mornay? Am I the only Australian who has never tried it? When I was growing up friends used to talk about eating it for dinner but I had never had it until last month. Yahoooo I am no longer a Tuna Mornay virgin. Well it wasn’t actually tuna I had, I would have been sick if it had been. It was a mornay made with jackfruit, chickpeas, peas and broccoli and it was delicious.
It’s seasonal produce week in the world of blog writing at Veet’s Vegan Cooking School. It’s sweet corn time. Lovely fresh young kernelled cobs of corn are purchasable at our local organic health food store. It felt so decadent to buy three cobs for this recipe that I share with you this week.
This week is book review week in my scheduled blogs and I have decided to review my own Cook Book Veet’s Cuisine Delicious Vegan Recipes. Yes I love my own cookbook, cooking many of the recipes on the retreats that I catered on over the last ten years. The recipes are simple, all gluten free, all vegan and all delicious. There are over 150 recipes including how to make cashew cheese and sour cream. Also Indian feast recipes, four types of lasagnes, a Balinese feast, many other main dishes, soups, salads, dressings, desserts, drinks, vegetable dishes and a dedicated grain section. As well as a pantry list and a protein guide.
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?
