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 [...]

Vegan Lasagne

Vegan Lasagne

You have to make this recipe. My family and I were all stunned how good it tastes. It's light but satisfying – minus the trillion calories that come with traditional lasagne. And absolutely perfect for a large family meal, a dinner party or the week's meal-prep: it freezes well and can be divided into 6 neat portions ready to be heated up or guzzled down straight from the fridge. 

I nearly misspelt the title of this recipe. Lasagne or Lasagna?  [...]

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 [...]

Moroccan Roast Veg w/ Chickpeas + Quick-Pickled Raisins

Moroccan Roast Veg w/ Chickpeas + Quick-Pickled Raisins

It was the first day of spring on Tuesday. Doesn't feel that way where I live. I thought, perhaps, that today's recipe would be a sort of 'last-hoorah' for winter root vegetables, but the weather in London indicates differently!

Anyway, weather-grumbles aside, I made this recipe when I stumbled upon a concept that is little-known in the UK, but should be far better established. And that concept is 'Sheet Pan Dinners'. These are preparations that you pop in to the oven on a 'sheet pan' (baking tray) and come out as a full meal [...]

Indian Filled Pancakes

Indian Filled Pancakes

Surfing around YouTube one day, I stumbled across a Gordon Ramsay recipe for Indian Pancakes. I was so surprised to see a vegetarian recipe by the man that I watched the video. It’s an enjoyable clip, particularly Ramsay’s tendency not to develop or qualify his remarks: “Ginger. Nice. Garlic. Nice.“ Anyway, they looked delicious. Unfortunately, they were far from vegan, with eggs and dairy products involved.

Intrigued, I set out to veganise them [...]
