Leek and Mushroom Tart with Roasted Swede and Vegan Pesto

I’m doing Veganuary to challenge my foodie brain to come up with dishes I not only want to eat, but I want to crave. The product of this week’s industry is a vegan tart, my new favourite craving. This tart is a complete dream; a deep mushroomy leek base, hot with mustard, topped with sweet…

Briam (Greek veggie bake)

I’m away this weekend in Croatia! My mate is getting married, so this week’s recipe is from ageeess ago. Briam is an amazingly flavourful vegan bake which is super adaptable. The recipe is simple: finely slice a load of veg, toss through tomatoey, garlicky oil, and roast. It’s addictive, and perfect with a hunk of…

Rice, walnuts and pomegranate

My Colombia travels are nearly over! In between munching through an inordinate amount of arepas and empanadas, I wanted to share this vegan one-pot wonder you’ll want to bury your face in. Thanks for the inspirationĀ @lucindatoole! Takes 30 minutes, makes 4 work lunches INGREDIENTS300g brown rice2 big red onions, finely sliced2 cloves of garlic, minced200g…

Roast Celeriac with Butternut Squash Daal

A clash of inspiration from two sources for this week’s work lunch. A work colleague’s daal (shout out @jujubarnett1) combined with an incredible celeriac starter from @eatlebab has created a delicious and #accidentallyvegan feast. I know the cooking time sounds long but it’s just for veg roasting. A warming meal for a cold and rainy Feb. Takes 2.5 hours, makes…

Channa Masala

After a @jamieolivercookeryschool cooking class last week (awesome bday present from @amberspeed1) I had a week-long craving for curry. Indian cuisine is great for vegans, so long as you skip the ghee and yoghurt! This chickpea curry is delicious, warming and deeply flavoured. I finished it with a blob of @oatly creme fraiche (worth a try!) Takes 35 mins, makes…

Sweet Potato Falafel Wrap

Big cooking day today and Veganuary still going strong! Inspired by a particularly tastyĀ @leonrestaurantsĀ wrap I ate last week, here is a recipe for sweet potato falafel. I’ve teamed it this week with hummus, coriander and some kimchi I have knocking around and turned it into a wrapĀ #fusion. Takes 50 mins, makes 4 work lunches INGREDIENTS…

Bang Bang Cauliflower

Vegan January going well so far! This cauliflower dish is a real winner, inspired by the dish they serve in @wagamama_uk. Have a play with the seasoning and adjust to your liking (dark soy sauce mixed a pinch of sugar works well if you can’t find sweet soy). Serve with nutty brown rice for a great…

Borlotti bean, Leek and Mushroom Crumble

Iā€™m a big fan of a crumble! Savoury crumbles are a great way to serve up veg in a new and exciting way. This borlotti bean one is a delicious alternative to the Sunday roast. With big, hearty flavours, itā€™s super comforting. A treat for vegans and non-vegans alike! 45 minutes, serves 2 INGREDIENTSCan of…

Kinda Pesto Pasta with Tomato, Capers and Gherkins

This pasta dish is my go-to when I have no clue what to eat. The sauce is made mainly from things in your cupboard and can be on the table in 15 minutes. Itā€™s gutsy and completely addictive; I have it once a week. You can finish with cheese if you like but to be…
