If you can’t wait to find out the big news at Veet’s Vegan Cooking School skip the recipe and go to the message at the end of the newsletter. If you can wait then you are in for a treat with these two delicious salads that can be eaten in both hemispheres, as they are equally delicious hot or cold.
It’s a very breezy cool day where I live today so this week’s recipe is very fitting. I also think this soup would go well as a spring or early autumn soup. It’s book review week this week. I have this lovely book at home, once again not vegan but definitely vegetarian and the recipes are so easily adaptable when you know how (that’s one of the many things I teach in the 3 day course - how to adapt regular recipes and make them vegan). The book on review this month is At Home in the Wholefood Kitchen by Amy Chaplin. It has lots of lovely tips and some great information. Well worth borrowing it from your local library.
Wow what a week. Love sent to you all and especially those of you who once again find yourselves in lockdown. I hope you have the ingredients to cook up feasts for yourself during this time. Food is our saviour right now. Get cooking for yourself, your loved ones and your neighbours.
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.
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.
I meet people who either like mushrooms or they don’t. I meet people who say mushrooms are fantastic for good health and I meet others who won’t eat them as they say they are not good for you. I am a mushroom lover and my body seems to love them too so I tend to agree that they are good for you. I do eat them in moderation though and would never have them more than twice a week even though I would love to have them every day. How about you, what is your take on mushrooms, how often do you eat them.
What is your favourite breakfast? Mine is an Indian dish that comes from the state of Gujarat. One of the things I really look forward to when I go the the Osho Meditation Resort in India is that I know I will get to eat poha for some of the breakfasts while I am there. In recent years it has been served every three days. The breakfasts that were served on the other days were delicious too but I must admit for me they paled in comparison to poha.
