Miso Aubergine with Veggie Stir-fried Rice

I’m a big fan of miso aubergine! It feels like it’s popping up on menus everywhere at the minute, so I thought I’d have a go myself (spoiler alert, it’s unbelievably easy to do). The trick I found was to add some water to the baking tray, which steams the aubergine so it softens up…

Veggie Moussaka

Moussaka, that gloriously beefy Greek dish, gets a veg makeover. The mix of lentils and ground walnuts is incredible; you’ll be convinced you’re eating regular mince! I swap out the faff of making a white sauce too for a yoghurty cheese mix; a bit rogue but it worked a treat. This dish is an experiment…

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…
