This is a very simple lunch that it prefect for the hot weather we’re currently having. This is not a strict tabbouleh recipe (which are typically parsley-based with bulgur wheat), but more my interpretation of it. I’ve chosen quinoa as the base because you can easily get it already cooked in packets at your local supermarket, making this a very quick and easy meal to put together. It is the only thing in the dish that is cooked, the rest is raw salad served in the bread of your choosing.
You can enjoy it at home in your garden, or you can make it in the evening and take it into work with you the next day (the flavours are amazing the day after), either way this is a fantastic light meal for any day of the week.

Kale and Spinach Tabbouleh Sandwich
- 65 g fresh baby spinach
- 50 g chopped kale
- 100 g quinoa cooked
- 2 cloves garlic
- 8 cherry tomatoes quartered (orange rapture are also good)
- 1 medium carrot grated
- ½ cucumber diced
- Handful of coriander chopped
- 4 tbsp vegan yoghurt
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Salt and black pepper
- 4 Pumpkin seed bread rolls or rolls of your choosing
- 8 baby gem lettuce to serve
- Simply put all the ingredients apart from the lettuce and the bread into a large mixing bowl and combine. Cover and leave in the fridge for one hour for the flavours to amalgamate.
- Cut the bread and put a small drizzle of olive oil on each side. Place two gem lettuce leaves on the bottom layer, then put a large spoonful of the tabbouleh onto the lettuce, put on the top layer of bread and enjoy.

Butternut squash is available in our supermarkets all year round, as opposed to most other autumn and winter squashes, which we only see at those times of year.

This is a perfect mid-week meal that doesn’t take much time to cook and is ideal for when you’re on a budget. It involves just a few ingredients and makes use of your air-fryer to cook the potatoes while you’re making the curry. If you don’t have an air-fryer, you can either sauté or roast
This is such an easy soup to make and perfect for autumn and winter. Thick, warming and full of flavour, this Roasted Squash and Smoked Aubergine Soup will be a regular feature at your dinner table. I used the red onion squash for this recipe, but you can just as easily swap it for any
Autumn is always an exciting time when it comes to food, with the harvest of so much fruit and veg that is actually in season, and the arrival of a few items we only see at this time of year. One of those, of course, is the pumpkin. Pumpkins hit our stores in October but
I’ve been meaning to post a vegan Moussaka for some time but it’s one of those recipes I hadn’t yet got around to doing (there are many of them). Recipes for moussaka vary considerably from region to region and it is a popular dish throughout the Balkans and the Middle East. We are perhaps more
The vindaloo curry began its life in Goa and is based on the Portuguese dish Carne de Vinha D’alhos. The actual translation for Vindaloo is Wine with Garlic, but the wine in the Portuguese version has long since been substituted for vinegar. This curry is revered in Britain as a hot dish attempted only by
