Country potatoes

Emily loves potatoes. She would live on potatoes alone if I let her....just mashed potatoes! Country potatoes are more of a cross between mashed potato and chips in my opinion. Em plans to put her potatoes in a wrap with sausagemeat, eggs and salsa as breakfast burritos like w had back in the US. Alan… Continue reading Country potatoes

Asparagus Risotto

Quick and simple meal. This can be used with just about any vegetables in place of the asparagus if you are either not a fan or just don't have it to hand. I love a mushroom risotto and this can be substituted if you desire. Risotto really is a simple meal to make. Only took… Continue reading Asparagus Risotto

Chick’n Noodle Soup

Before going plant based this was a family favourite with chicken...in fact it is Emily's favourite meal. I have a bit of a twist on the traditional recipe though as I use paprika for flavour. Originally, this was a Chicken Brunswick Stew I found in a cookbook but I didn't like this bit and added… Continue reading Chick’n Noodle Soup

Dhal

Indian food is so rich and full of flavour. I am sure I don't do it justice but I still have a whirl with the easier stuff. This is one of those easier recipes. It is a great starter recipe to build your confidence. The lentils are great for protein and fibre. The tomatoes, onion,… Continue reading Dhal

Sweet potato and Spinach Curry

Curry is a great dish as you can pretty much put anything you like in there and have a spicy, rich meal. I made this curry for the sake of Sunday dinner but when I posted the picture on Instagram someone asked for the recipe. So I guess the recipe must be done which means… Continue reading Sweet potato and Spinach Curry

Dinners, Sourdough

Sourdough Casserole 800g sourdough starter 1 300g packet of silken tofu  2 Tablespoons Nutritional yeast 2 teaspoons baking powder… Continue reading Sourdough Casserole (vegan)

Crispy Spicy Tofu with Ramen Style Soup

Please excuse the lack of pretty pictures as I was not planning to do this recipe for a post but it was so good that I have to share. The picture below does not do this dish justice at all. I had no attempted anything like this before so searched for inspiration this morning. In… Continue reading Crispy Spicy Tofu with Ramen Style Soup

Veggie Quesadilla (vg)

I guess technically a quesadilla should have cheese but we are whole foods plant based. So for my hubby and I it was no cheese or cheese like substance. If you aren’t doing the WFPB thing and want some cheese it is up to you. The omnis and the vegetarian chose cheddar cheese in the… Continue reading Veggie Quesadilla (vg)

Creamy Red Lentils

As things evolve in my home we are now up to three people that are plant-based and three that are not. This means my cooking strategies have also needed to evolve. As of Friday I am now making one very big plant-based meal and just providing a meat on the side for those that still… Continue reading Creamy Red Lentils
