What an exciting week I have had. It was my birthday last week and I had a fabulous lunchtime gathering of women friends. We even had a dance, which was an extra special treat, and the big news from last week was... I launched my first ever on line cooking course: Cooking at Home with Veet
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.
Christmas is not long now and even if you don’t celebrate the occasion, you may be invited to a gathering. So here are a few recipes that may inspire you to get in the festive cheer or at least ensure you are well fed when you are invited to any of the celebrations going on.
A very common cry from meat eaters to people who announce they are vegan is “Where do you get your protein from?” I am ever grateful my mum asked me this question at the age of sixteen as it sent me on a quest of finding out just what protein was. In my early twenties I had the good fortune of a naturopath telling me to eat protein with every meal and then in recent years another naturopath questioning me about complete protein. I can safely say I have been eating complete protein with every meal for a good many decades (except when I go out as it is not always an option on menus in cafes and restaurants).
I've been making nut roasts for six or so years now and from time to time I change parts of the original recipe and look up new ideas. In all the variations this is the best one I have come across. With it containing a grain (rice) and nuts it is automatically a complete protein meal and then the addition of organic non gmo silken tofu you really do have yourself a protein packed meal.
