This is one of my absolute favourite things to cook. It’s light enough to eat outside in summer, filling enough for a cold winter’s evening, pretty enough, with its pomegranate topping and fruited quinoa, to brighten any overcast day in autumn or spring. Pretty much everyone likes it, although the Babbit mostly picks off the […]
A faggot, in British English, is a fairly dense sausage, higher in breadcrumbs or rusk than a sausage, and less perfectly cylindrical. Not to be confused with the same word in American English where it means something entirely different! These are not true replicas of faggots, as they are a bit too dry. A traditional […]
Okra is one of those things that I love when eating out, but have never managed to get quite right at home. I always end up munching through it contemplating Lewis Carroll’s “slithy toves” and wondering if okra was what the man meant. The solution – frozen okra! 1 packet frozen baby okra 4 small […]
This recipe came up on the Vegan Food UK Facebook page and I thought I’d give it a try. The recommended 2 tbsp aquafaba wasn’t nearly enough – it created a dough rather than a cake mix, so I just kept adding aquafaba until it looked right, using the whole of the liquid from a […]
1 package silken tofu, drained 2 tbsp red wine vinegar 2 tbsp lemon juice Blend to a creamy consistency.
Divide a head of cauliflower into florets, cover in barbecue sauce and bake for 45 minutes at 180C. Super easy to make and equally easy for little fingers to pick up! There is no picture of them once they came out of the oven as they got scoffed too soon.

A success! The hummus / tofu topping makes a good alternative to white sauce, and the lentils bulk out the mushrooms without taking over. We had it with a nutty green salad. Ingredients Whole wheat lasagna sheets, pre-soaked if needed 1 medium onion 4 cloves garlic 500g mushrooms 1 cup red lentils 2 tins chopped […]
How do you make a nut roast without any sort of oil or egg to bind it? This recipe uses apple sauce. It’s not the most exciting thing I’ve ever made but it was reasonably tasty and filling. The tartness of the cranberry and apple sauce saved it from being bland. Nut roast 300g mixed […]
