Curried peas w/ spiced potato mash

Curried peas w/ spiced potato mash

This recipe is in homage to my favourite restaurant. I wouldn't blame you for assuming that my favourite restaurant is some kind of plant-based central-London gourmet hotspot. However, that is far from the truth. It's a £7.95 Indian buffet.

It’s called Indian Veg. The food, although delicious, isn't why I like it so much [...]

Tagine of Butter Beans, Almonds and Prunes

Tagine of Butter Beans, Almonds and Prunes

This dish is very nostalgic for me. It's a veganised version of Julie Le Clerc's chicken tagine. My mum would regularly make big batches of it for weeknight dinners when I was old enough to appreciate good food. The flavour is so nostalgic to me that when I finally cracked the vegan version last week (after a few attempts...), I was worried I was enjoying it far more than anyone else. Thankfully [...]

Pomegranate Molasses & Tahini Breakfast Bowl

Pomegranate molasses are similar to sugar cane molasses (aka treacle) in that [...]

4 the love of Peanut Butter

4 the love of Peanut Butter

A real treat this week: 4 recipes that use peanut butter, each with only 4 ingredients.  

For a long time now I've argued that peanut butter is the best food. Not just the tastiest nut butter, or most delicious spread: downright the best food. Because peanut butter, besides tasting amazing, is remarkably versatile. From satay noodles and stir fry sauces to chewy cookies and chocolate peanut butter cups, there are few other ingredients that stand up so well in both savoury and sweet dishes [...]

Thai Green Curry

Thai Green Curry

Before I made this recipe, I was a little intimidated by Thai cuisine, to be honest. No Indian-style onion-ginger-garlic base? No chopped tomatoes?! What's more, I was put off by the number of Thai green curry recipes out there. How could I possibly make something different?  

The answer came in the form of a returning traveller. Mysterious as that sounds [...]
