Cauliflower and Mushrooms with Home Made XO Sauce

The Vegan Chef Training is approaching it’s last two weeks. What a wondrous course it has been. On the last day of module 5 we had 3 fabulous facilitators attend. Lilli and Sue who came and taught Kambucha, Jamu, fire tonic and shrubs (a healthier version of cordial). In the morning Kiriko taught tofu and miso. The tofu was the nicest tofu I have ever tasted. There is no shop bought tofu that comes anywhere close to this deliciousness. While making tofu is quite a production I really would like to always make my own.

Tahini Bake

It hadn’t dawned on me what was really missing for me personally during the COVID 19 lockdown and restrictions until last week when a friend sent a really cute video.

Veg Makhanwala and Okra Curry

As I start to wind down the last week of work before I go on my yearly visit to India I feel a curry recipe is called for, so I am sharing with you two recipes. I adapted the first recipe earlier this year and had planned on sharing with you all then but somehow spaced it out. So here is Mak’s (my beloved’s) favourite curry recipe. He used to eat this at a restaurant called Prem’s in Pune India, in those days he was vegetarian and not yet vegan. The original recipe has paneer and lots of cream however he was equally happy with this vegan version of it.

One Pot Camping Meals (Take Two)

I just found the book I wrote camp recipes in when we were road tripping in November and December last year and realised that I still have some beauties to share with you. The recipes are so easy for camping as they all only need one saucepan or wok to cook them in. Which also makes them great for one pot meals in the home.

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.

Almond, Cauliflower and Tomato Bake

I know there are two schools of thought in the vegan world on protein. One is that there is so much protein in all that we eat that we don't really need to worry about it and that it is rare to be protein deficient.

Quinoa lentil and Cauliflower Salad with a Currant Sauce

Book review time. Last Tuesday I went on a book shop binge and $269 later I walked out with two canvas bags full (I am praying my partner is not reading this blog post because that really was extravagant). Amongst those books was a great new cookbook called Neighbourhood by Hetty Mckinnon.
