Pumpkin and Mango Curry

I’m one of those people who, when it’s pumpkin season, tries to put it in everything. Main courses, desserts, cakes, if I can get it in there I will. I also try to hang onto them as long as I can. Whether I’m freezing the flesh or keeping them whole for as long as they…

Vegan Braised Tofu Thai Cakes

This dish uses the same technique as the potato rosti and is a great way of doing something a little different with your spuds. It involves grating the raw potato and squeezing as much of the moisture out as you can so that you don’t end up with a mushy, water-logged mixture that isn’t going…

Cajun Spiced Broccoli Bites

I’d been mulling this idea over in the back of my mind for some time, while working on a host of other recipes. I’d seen plenty done with cauliflower in terms of seasoning with spices, and I wanted to try something with broccoli. I’ve always had a fondness for Cajun spice. There’s an earthy sweetness…

Oven Roasted Apricots

If you haven’t tried roasting apricots in the oven, you’re missing a treat. The softness of them, mixed with the sweetness and spices makes for a completely moreish snack.

BBQ Baked Spiced Apples

With barbeque season in full swing, it can be difficult sometimes to know what to shove on the coals. Burgers and sausages are great (I’ll be doing some later today), but we do want a little variety on our summer plates. Desserts are particularly tricky. Barbecued pineapple steaks are an obvious choice, but there are…

Oven Roasted Kale with Spiced Lentils and Mango

This is a quick meal that’s ideal for the middle of the week, when you really don’t want to be doing too much cooking. The lentils come in a can and all the other ingredients are quick to cut up and cook. Follow this recipe and you can have a tasty meal for two in…

15 Minute Thai Lentils with Green Beans and Coconut Rice

Cooking healthy food when you’re tired is no easy task. Work and/or looking after the children all day can leave you in no mood to spend yet more time in the kitchen. It can be so tempting to open a packet of frozen vegan burgers and to hell with the nutritional value. There are certainly…
